  1. 1st Take: Klipsch RF-7 III

    Home Audio Speakers
    Sorry, can’t see your pics. I’ve read some nice things about the 7’s. In fact they’re the first klipsch speakers that truly caught my interest. Also, not surprised they sound the same. I think speaker break in is an old wives tale. Mostly the suspension just loosens up...
  2. I was wondering how well the SVS PB-2000 does with music.

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I like Jmans suggestion of the new pb2k pro. I think the PB is a good choice as you can have the efficiency of a ported subwoofer that’s also great for music.

    Here is a great read for you. http://www.acousticfrontiers.com/2013314thx-reference-level/
  4. Sonosub Build Projects For SI HT15 Subwoofer

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Don’t know of any build plans sorry. I can recommend getting your tube from a concrete supply place. They’ll probably even cut it for you. You can cut the baffles with a jigsaw, or circle jig on a router, or even have a car audio or cabinet shop cut them if you need...
  5. Sonosub Build Projects For SI HT15 Subwoofer

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    https://www.subwoofer-builder.com/sonosub.htm I used this when building one. Pretty simple and intuitive. Those SI drivers are awesome. I’d love to do what you’re planning. I was considering these. https://stereointegrity.com/product/hst15-15-subwoofer/
  6. Can we really hear a difference between amps?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Ime, tubes tend to sound warm, so I wouldn’t be surprised.
  7. Video feed - AV Pre-Pro or Projector?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I agree with Wayne. Should not see any difference.
  8. Dolby Atmos for streaming services?

    AV Home Theater
    Yeah, that was for dawiz. He’s rambled and ranted about Atmos before. Just wondering where his basis comes from.
  9. Does size really matter?

    Home Audio Speakers
    Sneaky indeed. Not as offensive def tech and their inflated low end roll off specs. I’m not a bookshelf guy, but if I were the rp160 would be in my short list. As for the ls50’s, I’ve never heard them but I understand they’re designed for near field. And while they supposedly sound fantastic...
  10. Does size really matter?

    Home Audio Speakers
    Pretty sure I recall that klipsch uses an in room sensitivity measurement vs anechoic. Basically the 97db rating is more realistically 92 or 93. Still pretty good but inflated.
  11. Dolby Atmos for streaming services?

    AV Home Theater
    Netflix does offer Atmos on its premium service but it might only utilize Atmos on Netflix studios stuff. Vudu offers Atmos and I think Hulu does. AFAIK, YouTube, despite having videos what say “surround” etc are actually only 2.0. I can’t verify that though. Apple TV4k has the capability but is...
  12. Yamaha CX-A5200

    Nice! Love getting new gear. Congratulations
  13. Does size really matter?

    Home Audio Speakers
    Interesting. Can’t remember where I heard otherwise but maybe I just missed something. In any case, I’ve read nothing but good ink about the RP line. The JBL Studio 5xx series(which is on its way out) is another one with a horn done very well with an actual compression driver.
  14. Does size really matter?

    Home Audio Speakers
    For some reason I thought they changed the tweeter and the tractrix horn too. Not [emoji817] though. Also, fwiw I’m still a believer in “no replacement for displacement”. In my world bigger is better still too. speakers can get loud, but they still don’t deliver the same way as towers(real...
  15. Towers for Height Channels?

    Home Audio Speakers
    No. It will be fine. AND that’s mostly where it’s recommended to place them. SVS recommendations high and to the sides, at about 35° for x.x.2. I wouldn’t worry about where you want to place them up front. Imo, since your surrounds are above the bed layer spec, I think a little farther...
  16. Is this too much air space for the 12 alpine bass line

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    IMO 24hz is too high for HT but that’s what happens with car drivers with FS in the 30hz range. I’d be curious to measure it’s FR. It’s pretty hard to get really good output below FS. 60 bucks is cheap though, so why not...
  17. Home theater Speaker question

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    Wow, I just looked up Bayz speakers. I couldn’t find pricing, but if nothing else they are gorgeous. Works of art.
  18. Home theater Speaker question

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    Well the reason I said that is 114 seems very high. Maybe for a pro speaker, but still I think that’s a big claim is all. And normally, wattage ratings are not expressed as continuous, but more like peak, and are a melting point. 200 watts is a lot, and coupled with the 114db rating, I’m...
  19. Home theater Speaker question

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    Lol, yes. You could drive that speaker to reference levels with a cell phone! What is the speaker? 114db seems a little dubious. Or maybe doobie-us?
  20. MartinLogan Dynamo 1500x vs Hsu ULS-15 mk2

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    Well, IMO HSU is probably the value leader so I would start there. As far as thump goes, these are very linear and well damped subs. They’re very nice for music as well as shaking the couch. FWIW sealed vs ported is a wives tale. http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/vtf-15hmk2Dual.html This...
