    I have a dumb question, and I feel like it pertains to physics as much as anything else. I have a Mal-X 21" in an LLT enclosure, tuned to 14hz. For the first time this afternoon, I finally got to play with it and push it to see what it can do. It handled scenes like Darla tapping the glass like...
  8. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Hey everyone, I'm looking for my first system to go in a small bedroom. I listen mainly to dubstep and rap music, both very bass heavy. I was thinking about the Onkyo HTS3300 but my main concern is a good sub that hits hard. I wouldnt mind a 3.1 system just to have a good sub to meet my $300...

    Hey guys, Probably like you, I like overkill. I'm checking out binding post options. I remember seeing some time ago someone had really large binding posts. I think the base was 2"x5" and each post was 1" diameter. I can't seem to find the link anymore. Anybody have any idea what I'm...

    I have some speakers that weigh around 27 lbs and am planning on using the omnimount 30 mounts. Unfortunately the interior wall that I want to use doesn't have a normal 2x4 - it is more like 2 3/4 inches. Has anyone had any experience mounting heavy speakers in less than ideal situations?

    That comes with a MAL? I am shooting for a 21.5 inch cube. If I don't use the gasket (parts express foam tape on the cabinet instead) I can cut the hole a 1/2 inch smaller. It might make a diffference, because I want to use a 3/4 radius roundover on the four vertical lines of the cabinet. So...

    Are there/What are the drawbacks of using heavy EQ (PEQ) on subs, be it sealed or otherwise. More EQ on the low end - excursion problems, which can be solved by using a lesser amp, what else? Higher distortion? Personally, I'd rather use a smaller amp, and EQ it (6 db? 10 db? When is too much...

    Howdy, Currently I have a Tempest in an EBS 210l ported enclosure with a redgum 250w plate amp. Recently I EQed my setup using REW and a BFD. I now have what I consider a nice sounding sub, extending well below 20hz thanks to room gain. And all the SPL I need. My question is, what would I...
