  1. Genelec speakers

    Home Audio Speakers
    Genelecs are well made in Finland and 8030 sound good like whole 8000 series. 5-7 8030 + subwoofer is pretty popular HT set around here. Have visited in their factory in Iisalmi and was bit suprised that even amps was soldered there. Every speaker is measured after installation to be sure it's...
  2. My Hideaway construction Begins

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    Also tile mortar can be used to bond two drywall together. Maybe not as effective that GG because it's not as flexible, but still better than nothing and cost will be fraction. It have been used in some HT and studio projects around here.
  3. Cant hit 23.976 Hz with Nvidia GTS 450 and Panasonic AE4000U Projector

    It's normal for Nvidia cards. http://www.anandtech.com/show/4380/discrete-htpc-gpus-shootout/5 Could be hard to get it right. Some say that Reclock helps. http://www.avforums.com/forums/home-entertainment-pcs/1471061-proper-23-976hz-nvidia-card-possible-all.html I chanced to Ati because of...
  4. Examples of GREAT sounding rooms?

    REW Forum
    I guess this room have greatest acoustic I have heard this far. Nothing wrong with those 1036A speakers either.:D
  5. Fi IB3 18 500liters

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    Simulation looks decent, even 500 liter/driver is bit smallish. (Qtc=0.84) Hope your IB location works for your listening position and you don't have to go with sealed boxes. Other options is moving listening position, making acoustic better or equing peaks.
  6. 4 X Fi IB18's infinite baffle, still deciding?

    IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    Maybe in theory this might give more even output to both sides of baffle, but in practice space restriction is only way to explain that installation. Bottom drivers must be connected out of phase, so all cones moves to same direction. It doesn't do anything differently than normal four driver...

    That's true.

    IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    LMS is fine for IB. It have 44 mm xmech so you wont destroy those easily. Fi would be bit louder, but that much doesn't matter. LMS should beat Fi in distortion. Which fr curve suit better to your room? Don't know, but there's no big difference. Go with LMS's, because you already have those.

    IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    There is certain order to fill specs to sheet. Qes, Qms, Fs, vas, Mms, BL, xmax and Pe. Software calculate others. Two FI IB318 will outperform four AE by 6db, but AE's goes bit lower. (f3=17Hz vs FI 25Hz) Shouldn't make difference in your concrete bunker, there bottom end could be too rich with...
  10. 4 X Fi IB18's infinite baffle, still deciding?

    IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    Used Winisd pro alpha software. Four IB318 driver in 7m3 closed enclosure, pushed to their maximum linear excursion at 5 Hz (400w/driver) gives 127db output to 2pi / 1 meter. With 2nd order HP filter at 10 Hz you can feed max 550W/driver and you get 2-3 db more output for upper bass, but you...
  11. 4 X Fi IB18's infinite baffle, still deciding?

    IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    Sounds like a plan, just keep in mind you will need good support for that false wall. Room gain from your concrete room should give much lower -3db point than below simulation. Maybe around 10-15 Hz.

  13. LCR meter recommendations?

    DIY Speakers
    I have this cheap LC meter and it's just fine for speaker building. http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=390-570 Only down side with other electronic is that capasitance readings are only up to 200uF, but that is more than enough with speakers. I use Atlas ESR60 for caps...
  14. Power Management between an HT and A/C Unit

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    If your house have three phase power, install ac to other phase that av stuff. Bit extra work to install new line from fuse panel, but should be still cheaper and better solution than power conditioner/filter.

    IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    In general it's best to test element or manifold position with box subwoofer. I couldn't do that because there was no floor at that moment and room will be twice longer when I found time to knock back wall down. So I relyed only to theory to make placement desision, elements are located 1/4 and...

    DIY Repair and Maintenance
    Just fixed one LG smps and secondary filter caps looked ok and capasitances measured ok, but still smps output voltage lines was below nominal. Don't have ESR meter so I had to swap all secondary filter caps, now it's working fine. I guess problem is that they used caps meant for general use...
