  1. Noobie with 1st subwoofer question

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    I purchase a new Yamaha RX-A740 7.2 receiver and want to add my first subwoofer, but need some clarification. I noticed some subs have LFE and some don't. Though my receiver has 2 sub outs, nowhere in it's manual does it mention LFE. Should I look for a sub w/ LFE input or can I have a sub w/o...

    Hey guys and gals...I hope so anyway, I'm new here but not new to the audio world or world of electronics. I saw a thread on how the Yamaha RX-A1020 bass management does NOT allow a full bandwidth signal to go to it's fronts left and right when the center channel is engaged...

    Hi guys Just signed up today, your site looks very interesting. Got fairly simple home theater stuff, but am involved with church sound. Most applicable sites cover the big stuff, but not the smaller scale installs. Thought a lot of your comments might be more applicable. As well, I mess around...

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    I just finished building a DIY sub based on the Zaph Audio model. I must say I am impressed by the sub but it appears my room is too big for a 12" sub (18x25x10'). Another issue was the fact that the cherry veneer did not come out too good, it was blotchy which I don't understand (I used wood...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Where to begin. I recently have set out for a Home Theater Setup. For the last couple of months I have been putting together a HTPC and the results are amazing. I am slowly weening away from the cable company. If it wasn't for my wife's tv shows they would be out of my life completely. So I want...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    hey guys I'm interested in building my first sub to complement my zaph audio sr71 bookshelf mains. I'm going to be listening to rock/metal 50% of the time using 2.1 and will use the sub the other 50% in 5.1 for ht/xbox. The sub will mostly be in a room that is 12'x16' and occasionally in a...

    So I finally got my DSP1124 BFD and have everything hooked up. Test tones play fine, I can get some sort of measurement, but I do not have a midi cable long enough to have the REW communicate with the BFD. So I have to input the filters in manually. I make one measurement, then open up the eq...

    Just wanted to say nice site! Been reading up on tons of things surrounding home theaters, and learing a lot from the site! I've always had a fascination with speakers and sound. The fascination usually found it's way into my trucks, and still does. I've have door panels, about three sets...
