Got a BFD for pretty cheap... Still has the plastic on the display (shipping protection). Plus the guide I printed from HTS, and a couple cables. If your interested that is.

Be careful trying to pump really low frequencies like that. Good way to blow an amp.

There are many work arounds for the Behringer stuff so that you can EQ lower than 20hz. Might not be as precise as the MiniDSP but thats up to you.
It sounds like the MiniDSP is the better one for the job... If you had both, which would you choose for subs?

MiniDSP.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

I will sell the FBD, and use the extra MiniDSP 2x4 that I have.


Interesting thing... Today my Yamaha P7000s died (only had it in service since the beginning of July too). I unplugged it, and let it sit for a while and plugged it back in, and it is dead... no lights, nada, nothing at all.

Good thing it is under warranty.

So since it was dead I decided to use one of my P2500s amps for the subs for now, and I found out something interesting...

When I was using the P7000s I had to turn the gain up full on one channel, and 3/4 on the other channel to get Audyssey to calibrate the subs. When I hooked up the P2500s it calibrated both of them at about 7/8 level equally! I had originally thought that the P7000s was doing that due to one sub in front of the room, and the other being behind me, but I now believe it was defective. The other issue with the P7000s was a hum... The P2500 has one but it is much lower.

I will call Yamaha in the morning to see about getting the P7000s repaired.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

I called Yamaha this morning, and explained the problem, and they are sending me the info for a local repair shop. I have to say that the person I was dealing with was one of the most pleasant that I have ever had to deal with for a repair issue. No reading of scripts like when I had to deal with Epson... Just told him the problem, and it was a done deal.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

On a different note... A few weeks ago we had a power outage and ever since my Insteon Lighting was working off and on until it stopped communicating period with the ISY994i. I ordered a replacement ISY thinking that was the problem but it didn't solve it. I got a new modem under warranty, and that wasn't it either... I finally called Universal Devices about the ISY. The Tech had me run through a few things and came to the conclusion that it was electrical noise. He told me to unplug everything, and then re-plug them in one by one until I find a device that makes it stop working again. I was dreading that and tried a noise filter and re routing my power cords in the rack to no avail. A friend of mine came over and said if it is noise I should try wrapping the cords around a magnet... I then remembered back to my Audiophile days where I had used TDK magnets to eliminate noise. I dug into my junk, and fount about a dozen of them... I put one on each cord that was going into my UPS (including the UPS power cord), and decided to try it again. It worked! Now I can get back to working on my room again.

Looks like you have had some kinks to work out, but seems to be getting worked out. Nice.
