  1. Home Theater Design and Construction
    I am having an acoustic expert do my acoustic treatment design. I am planning on having 2 rows of seating, and my last decision is if I want the design to be optimized for all seats, or just for the front row. The design itself would cost me $500 less if I just do the front row, and there...
  2. REW Forum
    I want to use REW to measure driver's TS parameters and Basta! to do box design. Basta! requires voice coil inductance, Le (mH), filled in its Driver tab. Should I use Le(f3) generated by REW? Or Le given in Simplified Model Parameters? Many Thanks!

    Hi, I am new to this area. Recently I got JBL 8" sub-woofer speaker and like to design a sealed sub woofer box for it. I would like to make it a powered speaker since I have sub woofer amp and power supply in hand. I read that box size matters for sealed box design. How do I decide the...
  6. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I’m rebuilding a stereo system after having to pack it away for a decade. My listening tastes have changed over the years and I now find myself wanting a sub to fill in the lowest instruments. I’d like to build it because I’m a woodworker and I can produce something better than what I can afford...
  7. Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hello:) I currently have one Maelstrom 18" Gen II and one LMS ultra 18", each in a 3 cf sealed cabinet, with their own EP4000 amp. I wanted to look into building 2 new cabinets that are LLT. I must forego a sonotube, as I can only do the following dimensions: 17" deep, 85" high and 33" wide...

  9. 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...
  10. Home Audio Acoustics
    Hi all, I am currently designing a basement 2ch listening space that will double as my 7.2ch home Theater. I say listening space first, as I know music can be less forgiving than movies when it comes to sound. Anyway, I am looking to double check my work before I commit to this layout...

    Hey everyone. I just joined the forum, looks great so far! I'm looking for a bit of guidance and help in designing a subwoofer system. It will primarily be used for live sound but doing music that needs extension down to about 25Hz. I've discovered a few designs on the internet but they either...

    I dont see much on this subject around much.http://www.danmarx.org/audioinnovation/theories.htmlI have always thought it to be a superior way to do a subwoofer so I built 2 of them using some boston acoustics 10" drivers rated at 5 ohms each.Unfortunatly I could not find any other info on them...

    Is there something that would allow you to enter the box type, tuning and size to get the needed specs for the driver required.? At least a ballpark.

    Hello, I currently own a SVS 20-39PC+ that I bought 8 years ago. Was going to upgrade to another SVS, but got bit by the DIY bug. This DIY design will be used for both HT and music. Satellite speakers will be crossed over at 80 Hz, but LFE (.1) channel effects will go up to 120 Hz (brick wall...
  16. Home Theater System Recommendations
    I am a music lover, but not the sharpest tool in the shed. I bought a house with 10 speakers mounted in ceiling. They are MAS Audio speakers with 8 ohms and 100 watts. I drove them using my old Yamaha receiver (basically spliced the pairs together with half of them on one channel and half on...
  17. DIY Speakers
    Ladies & Gentlemen, I was building a set of tower speakers with a 2446j & a 2206. I was in the final stages and ready to construct. Then, I came across some literature about the new JBL D2 compression drivers and had to have them. I bought a set of the D2's and decided I wanted the new...

    :help: I have a small project going on to replace our house :hsd: with something more modern and efficient. This gives me a blank sheet of paper to design the home cinema. The room currently doubles as a lounge but does not have to in the new design. My question is, what instructions should I...
