  2. DIY Speakers
    Was thinking about picking up a copy of Bass Box pro and the crossover companion software from parts express and was hoping to capture a few opinions. Is anyone out there using this combo and WinISD? Is WinISD a basic equivalent (I've not used the crossover feature.....)? Descriptions don't...
  3. Home Theater Design and Construction
    In looking to build a portable studio, I found this video online and am wondering if anyone can help me by giving me some input. I'm in a rather undesirable living environment but have access to a basement where an idea like this could be employed, but I'm not sure how great it is...
  4. DIY Speakers
    I've been on the search for some time now, for a set of behind the screen LCR main speakers for my home theater. I'm trying to build DIY speakers based on designs suggested by members here. Since this is a HT application, I want to get good off-axis response… BTW, in the name of sound quality...
  5. DIY Audio
    Some advice and experience is needed on making decisions about how to piece together a 2 channel, 3 way system, for a 10' x 12' workshop. There are 4 small monitors from a 5.1 system that I'm thinking of stacking two on each side to act as the midrange/tweeter. Can this work well or is it a...

  7. Home Audio Acoustics
    Gonna make some diffusion panels. Here is what I came up with to trying to keep it to as simplistic as I can. The idea is to use some 1x4 material to build a frame (box) the back of this box would have 3/16" paneling to make sorta a mini bookshelf look. The box would measure 48" x 10.5" to...

    Hi everyone, first real post. I used REW to measure my bass traps, and picked up a few good construction tips from this site, so I figured I should make at least one post about how they went. So it's a variation on a limp mass absorbers, or membrane absorbers, whatever. The real difference in...
  9. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi guys/ladies-- I decided to start a spreadsheet to capture the parameters of various designs (WinISD for me). There's not much to it at this point. Just a few 8" designs. Any ideas for other columns I should add? I see this as a quick-n-easy way for people to quickly compare a bunch of...

    I've built HT walls before but never a dedicated room. Any advice on books specific to the design and construction of a HT room would be appreciated. I'm a DIY'r and plan to build this project myself. There is a LOT of great information in this forum but I also like having a reference as well...

  12. DIY Speakers
    So, what started out as a quick little writeup about crossovers...turned into a bit more...about 60 pages more. The DIYRM-A is a Do-It-Yourself Reference Monitor....much along the lines of an LS3/5a. Can be used a bit more broadly and works better with modern music. The writeup can be found...
  13. Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    I live and breathe construction and also love trim/cabinet building and very much so in the distant future want to build a sealed enclosure to house the FTW-21 subwoofer. I'd be using an external amp for this as well. However what I lack is general knowledge on the bracing designs/cutouts...

    Hi, Can anyone help me with designing the box for "Dayton Audio RSS315HF-4" 12" subwoofer with "Bash 300S" plate amplifier. This is my first sub build and I am not sure what to expect. I will be using it for 30% music and 70% movie. I have seen few designs for this but not sure which one to...
  15. Home Audio Acoustics
    My plan was... 24.5"x24.5" 2D diffuser using 4x4 as material. The design would be 7 wells by 7 wells using 41 blocks. Total weight will be around 60lbs. Problem 1: by having an array of these of 3 tall and 6 wide thats 18 panels total or 1,000lbs. I don't think any 2x4 wall or 2x6 ceiling...

    In April, we will be building a new garage and converting our existing garage into a game room, or a multi use space. I want to create a media closet for the HT equipment, as well as general storage. My initial idea is to create a 5' x 3' insulated closet, use double sliding doors on the...

    looking for opinions and validation from all you, the experts!! Please forgive me I'm relatively new to all this. My design goals are to have a single sub located under, sized to fit and isolated from a component table. My design is to have a downward firing sub with forward facing vents...
