    Hey guys, Out of curiousity today I compared the frquency response of my Onkyo TX-NR1007, a INuke DSP 3000, and a Crown XLS-202. It appears the INuke DSP 3000 has a bit of a treble increase over the other two at the highest end of the audible spectrum, but nothing too outlandish. I used an...

  20. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    How much more capable, if at all, is an IXL-15 vs the Shiva-X? If this Shiva-X sells, I am looking to replace it, but I don't want to go much bigger nor much more expensive. Is the IXL-15 an actual upgrade or is its Xmax going to hold it back vs the Shiva-X? Thanks!
