Re: Maelstrom-X Horn

Here is some good info here:

Loopback lets you test the response/timing of your sound card - so that you can account for that when doing a calibration. It's not required, but helps with the accuracy.

Ok, thanks for the link. I'll check it out. Is there any way to confirm that the 3.5mm jack on my desktop is a line in? All it has by it is a microphone, so does that mean that is it the right one ?

Re: Maelstrom-X Horn

I've had mixed success.

Most desktop PCs have a line-in.

Most laptops (without a docking station) don't. Generally they have a mic-in that may or may not work.

Some laptops are software switchable between line-in/mic-in too.

Re: Maelstrom-X Horn

Some sound cards are configurable. Go to Control Panel -> Sound and check the settings there.

Silence is golden but duct tape is silver.

One thing I've been pondering on getting is a low pass filter to go before the EP2500. What are my options for such a thing ?
My current receiver allows much too many 70hz plus frequencies to the sub, and causes nasty resonances in my room. I can't tell if it's something with the horn itself, or my room. Wish I could have installed some foam inside the open spaces in the horn before I slapped on the other side. Oh well. I was notified too late to remember to place foam in those places.

Any ideas on what I should get ?

I would like to get something that is fairly cheap, around $30 if possible. All that I would like it to do is let me adjust the low-pass filter anywhere from 40hz-90hz, with an adjustable amount of cut that I could fiddle with to achieve the sound that I would like.

EDIT: how about this ? Could I just run the mixer before the MIC2200, and turn down the 80hz knob to my liking ? Would that function as a low pass filter ?

I've recently tried boosting 90hz by 15db, with a Q of 1.6, running my Antimode EQ, and turning off the boost after EQ'ing is done, but that still is allowing too much 70hz+ frequencies through. I've tried many different boost levels, but I just doesn't sound right with a 90hz lpf. Anything else I could try ?

This a long shot but could you just rely on something like a reckhorn b1 or b2?

Right now, I'm using a Behringer MIC2200 for high pass and line level boosting. It also has an EQ feature on it, which I have been using for the boosting during the Antimode's EQ.

I have to say.... I have some pretty ridiculous 27hz output on this song. The pressure difference in the room makes you feel like you have to pop your ears. Haha.


Check it out and let me know what you think. I can feel the cabinets and granite countertops moving/vibrating in my bathroom and it is secured extremely well to the ground. Haha. I was super surprised to feel it moving like it was.
