  1. Interesting Sale on HiVi Swan Speakers over at Chane

    Home Audio Speakers
    Hey Folks, I was just checking out Chane's website and noticed the company is having a huge sale on its HiVi Swan desktop speaker systems... if you're in the market, this is something worth checking out. Huge range of prices...from budget to mid-range... and the savings look substantial...

  3. Building my first studio! It has an interesting challenge (portability), please help?

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    New to the forum, and I have to say, I love it. Before I start, I've drawn a few images (attached at the bottom) in paint for the visual people like myself. Also, most of the writing below is an acoustics section where I cover STC ratings because I hadn't found all of this important...
  4. Interesting video comparing Diffusers and absorbers

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I just found this video that compares a few of the different types and I found it interesting as to which I actually liked. I have run absorber before and diffusers but never actually compared them like they do on the video... I found that after listening I actually prefered the Diffusers much...
  5. Interesting REW "side effect" - stereo image

    REW Forum
    I have generated what seems to be a very good set of stereo REW correction filters for my studio monitor system. There is a noticed "tightening" of the sound when the REW filters are engaged and the spectrum is audibly, and measureably, more consistent. Now, I also noticed an unexpected "side...
  6. Interesting sub design

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    I never would have thought about using a keg for a sub... Pretty unique.
  7. Interesting build. Baby got bass?

    I came across this link and thought this was a interesting thread and build. I thought you guys may like this concept. I have no ties with this person, but just wanted to share. http://www.stevemeadedesigns.com/board/topic/80992-finally-going-to-build-an-ib-setup/

  9. Interesting Video about Tuning Freq !

    This is from a sub enclosure builder ,designer (PWK Desings) talking about Tuning Frequency of a bass reflex enclosure.
  10. 5 New 2012 HDTV Technologies that are actually interesting

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    With the industry showcase CES over, and now that we’ve had a few days to recuperate, it’s time to take a look at new technologies coming out this year. For the most part, this year’s CES was about bigger, cheaper flat panels, but in the crevasses there was some tech that’s actually worth...
  11. REW newbie - interesting results

    REW Forum
    I set up REW this morning... and I really wish I hadn't because I can't stop messing with things now! After messing around, I'm almost thinking I should move everything back where it was when I started. Let me show you some graphs: First test - sub in original location Sub in front left...
  12. Can a 30 year old receiver sound better than something from today? Interesting blind test.

    Two Channel Audio
    I stumbled across this interesting blind test. The thoughts are that many receivers made back 30 years or so ago were better built and sounded better than most receivers of today. They used a Pioneer a 1980 Pioneer SX-1980 in a blind test against several newer receivers and most chose the...
  13. Interesting if you need a lot of bass in a small space.

    Mobile Audio
    I know that this is the 'home theater shack.' But it's not too difficult to believe that the same people who build home theater subwoofers may also build something for their car/boat/rv whatever. I built this subwoofer for my Scion XB. I didn't want to take up any cargo space, so here's how I...
  14. Interesting results between v4+ and version 5

    REW Forum
    I applied a 6db house curve to REW. Graph vert axis 20-130 db, apply 1/3 octave smoothing . Target curve was 78.7 db With the older REW version 4.11 , The smoothing was so good , that no filters are required ! With Version 5 REW, I ended up with 7 filters ! So what gives ? Thanks
  15. Interesting graphs, the realtionship between Time, phase and amplitude.

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    well I found it interesting and surprising. Mucking about with system changes, and experimenting with distributed bass sources. I have two 18's (main woofers), two lab 12's in sealed boxes and two subs containing four XLS10's each, distributed around the room. I eq'd the bass to be reasonably...
  16. Post Padding Thread

    Testing
    This is it... the famous post padding thread so that you can get your first five post out of the way quickly. The old post padding thread got wiped out accidentally... we apologize to those who may be inconvenienced.
  17. interesting problem with HCN4226W/HCM4215

    Samsung
    Hi lcaillo, I came across two samsungs with the same problem, interference lines. When I saw one TV I thought and said it's interference. When I saw the second one with exactly the same problem I believe there's a problem there. It happens only with composite and S-VHS inputs, aka, 480i...
  18. Your Most Interesting Live Recording

    AV Home Theater
    What is the most interesting live thing or event that you recorded (audio recording)? What equipment and microphones did you use? How were the mics oriented? Was it for yourself or did you share it with friends?
  19. First time on BFD and already interesting

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Yes, yet another BFD virgin chimes in. I set mine up last week and EQed the sub manually (no computer near enough to run REW). Even done crudely, once I got the hang of it it seems to improve the tightness of the basslines and banish boominess. Still playing with the gain on the sub for best...
  20. Interesting Craigs List Ad

    Two Channel Audio
    I found this a minute ago and wonder what opinions it generates. I know very little about tube amps, but is 35wpc enough for these monsters? http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ele/495204289.html Not that I could afford it, but the seller is willing to sell all the components separately. Looks...
