  1. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I plan on going 4.00 cf gross for the pyle sub sealed this gives it a center frequency of about 35 hz and a -3 at 27 hz. We could even stuff it for an even lower center frequency and lower qtc than 1.10. The subwoofer is dual 4 ohm so we would need a amp at 200 rms at 8 ohms. Any suggestions...
  2. IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    Not sure If im modelling this correctly. This is telling me that I'd have to go up to 600W per speaker to hit Xmax. I've read in other places that 250-350w would be the most you'd want to go with dual opposed IB318 subs to prevent from bottoming out.

    Hi everyone. I recently replaced an old RCA home theatre in a box with a new Yamaha RX-V385BL receiver. I didn't know anything about the difference between passive and active subwoofers, but have since learned the receiver has only an RCA pre-out connection. My old RTD150 subwoofer is a...

    Well it’s been awhile and I’ve finally moved into a house with a basement. My old set up was using a behringer EP2500 but one of the channels went bad. I was also pairing it up with a behringer ultra gain pro for Hi/Lo pass filters. Was looking at Inuke 3000dsp, but I had a couple of questions...

    Dear experts, I’ve a question about amplifier and speaker. I would amp a 50W RMS 4 Ohm speaker with a 350W amp (Crown 1000) I understand that amplifiers have to be bigger than speakers, but my concern here is how to get the maximum output from this set up without destroying everything. I have...
