  1. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am currently being offered a JL 13W7 that has been refoamed. How much impact does it have in the speaker performance and parameters? I really wish to buy it, as it's being sold for 6/10th of the price. But will it be worth? Thanks guys
  2. REW Forum
    all: My bluetooth speaker in my room has very severe issue on the standing-wave. So, I want to use REW to find out the frequency of the standing-wave. But, the bluetooth has a high latency(maybe 0.3 second). I know nothing about the rational how REW measures the frequency response...

    I normally get great advice on this forum so just wondering if anyone has tried these and can offer some advice on which will be a better option. I would think the Velodyne will have higher quality parts although its rated to not play as low as the Dayton. This is for a small room like 9.5' x...

    I’ve got a relatively small 1,700 cubic foot (12’ x 16’ x 9’ H) home theater currently served by a pair of SVS PB-13U subs. They are well balanced in the room, have a relatively flat response at the MLP through 90 Hz and achieve peaks of around 116 dB on bass scenes in movies (I can’t push it...

    This might be a stupid question but I don't know the answer so I will ask anyway :) Let's say you have a measurement of a speaker and you want to bring in the right window to remove some reflections from the response. Why can't you just move the left window out by the same amount in order to...

    Hi, does anyone have any knowledge about this Celestion impact S1 sub? I can't find any info about it. I have an chance to buy one for $85 and was wondering if it would be an upgrade to my Polk psw250. The guys said he'd throw in a JBL center speaker with it, not sure the model number. Any...

    My first impression of the Velodyne Impact 10 was accurate and lasting. When I first picked it up I was amazed how light-weight it is (about 22 lbs.). It also sounds light-weight. My second impression was also lasting and accurate. It is a handsome-looking little box. It is also a...
