  1. Home Audio Speakers
    Hello I appeal to you because I do not know which central speaker to choose between these two models: Klipsh RP-404C Klipsh RP-500C Their characteristics are quite close. I doubt that the model with 4 speakers should be better but is the difference really significant for a room of 22 square...
  2. Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Long story short, I came here when I was looking to do my first DIY sub. I ended up making a 6.5 cu ft slot port with the dayton audio DVC385-88 15" and BASH 300w amp. It turned out great, but it is a little lacking in music, can't hit quite as hard when it has to fast. It's a cheaper driver...
  3. Two Channel Audio
    What is the deciding factor when you are considering a purchase of some audio gear? As usual, I will begin.... I pick my equipment based on a variety of factors. Will it do what I want? Features, power, ease of use...all important to me. Does it look cool? It just needs to look cool to me...

  6. Home Theater System Recommendations
    I'm looking for a powered sub to replace my dead sub. I have been reading through the forums and have noticed that the face of home theater has changed since I last ventured for product. The brick and mortar stores are being phased out by the ID outfits. I'm being drowned in brands/ specs and...
  7. Home Audio Subwoofers
    I think I've finally narrowed my choices down once again. Lol this is not as easy of a decision as I thought it would be! Unless someone throws a monkey wrench in to this: my two choices are the Svs PB-12nsd and the PSA XV15. If possible I'd like to hear from owners of both to help me put thus...

The ceiling peaks in the center, rising from the sides. I have a dark...
  12. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am currently finishing up a set of full size statements and the 2rcc (Sealed Statement center) with Statement monitors likely to follow for surrounds. What I do not have is a sub. I have never had a HT sub, but I do like a lot of low end. (My Explorer has 2 15" w/ 1600W) Listening is roughly...
  13. HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    I need to get a flat panel for a temporary HT setup. Probably will use for 1-2 yrs, then move to the bedroom. I really wanted to just buy a used plasma but finding that people around here think they are still worth new price. I certainly want 1080p and prefer a 58-62" but may have to shrink...

    Within the next day or so, I am upgrading my subwoofer in my 2100 ft3 media room, from the bloomy Velodyne DLS 5000R to one of these two subs... the Paradigm DSP 3200 or take a leap online with SVS PB12 NSD. The scenario I am faced with is the Paradigm can be purchased cheaper than the SVS (in...

    Ok, so Mr. Cason has made me really want to try passive radiators in my next build (I want to see what kind of different sound they have compared to ported). I've come up with a 16.5 cu.ft box, with four 18" passives from Kevin with 3,000g of weight added for a 12.96hz tuning. I think it looks...

    I have had my eyes set on the A2-300 for about a month now. I went to order it today only to find out that it would take 4-5 weeks for it to get to me. I did some more research and found the HSU STF-2 as somewhat comparable in quality in price. The main difference here is that the HSU could...

    Ok so I was playing around in WinISD while trying to figure out whether I want to build a box or a sonotube. That's more of an aesthetic decision, but while, pondering, I came across a few things and I've got more questions. First, Ports: I modeled two different options in WinISD, one with 3 4"...
