  1. Opinions on outlaw subwoofers?

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I am currently in the market for a new sub. I have been looking at the SVS and HSU subs almost exclusively. I see today that outlaw has a huge sale on all of their subs and they have peaked my interest. I did a search and it looks like most people say that they are ok. The Outlaw subs were...
  2. HT Speaker Opinions

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    I'm in the planning stage of building a dedicated HT, and wanted to get some opinions on speakers. My budget is not huge for speakers, so I'm looking for the most bang for the buck. After looking at Axiom, Aperion and others, I thought I had settled on the HSU Enthusiast 2 package. However...
  3. Have any opinions on the Nady GEQ's?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I'm wanting to replace my AudioControl home theater EQ for something in the price range of the Nady GEQ231 & 131. Anyone have any reasons that they would recommend a different brand? I've seen several other brands that are just a little more money (i.e. DBX), can anyone say if these are...

  5. 4 driver Design Opinions needed

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi All, I've been floating around for a long time, and also I've built some subwoofers. I'm very impressed with what I've produced so far, but the DIY bug bit me, and I need to ramp it up. Being from South Africa, importing drivers are a tad expensive, but I did find local drivers that has...
  6. A ZONE 2 Question, and a Request for Opinions on 3 or Multichannel Amps...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Is it possible to use a receiver's ZONE 2 preout section in order to add a stereo power amp to it, in order to power large front speakers (mains)? My Onkyo 605 has ZONE 2 connections, and I was wondering if I could simply buy a good two-channel monster amp to power the Polk RTi12 mains in my...
  7. Need some opinions on my Subs

    Mobile Audio
    Currently I have 2 x 12" KFC-xw1225db(in the same box) in an 80lt box powered by a Kenwood Excelon KAC-X811D running 1ohm which is front firing into the cab of a sedan. The bass has never been quite right and im hoping to improve it, I have tossed up building a new inclosure to face the Sub's...

  9. Seeking opinions on subwoofer isolation devices

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I was wondering about the merits of subwoofer isolation devices such as the one in the link below. My subwoofers use the typical spikes, but I'm curious about what benefit subwoofer isolation devices might provide. I have 2-channel music only systems...
  10. Opinions on Dana 630AVs?

    Home Audio Speakers
    I'm intrigued by the Dana 630s, but haven't actually heard a pair (not sure where I can hear them, actually). I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who's familiar with the Dana 630s, and how they might compare with : Paradigm Monitor 20 Paradigm Mini Monitor v6 Dynaudio Contour 1.3SE Monitor...
  11. Opinions On First Port Resonance & Port Chuffing

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Edit: Cut from another thread that went off topic. Mike P. Ryan, I think alot of people get too hung up on simulations in WinISD to be honest. My subs for example tuned to 13.5hz, people where saying the 1st port resonance is too low at 138hz and you won't be able to use a higher crossover...

    Has anybody seen the movie 2012 and have any opinions? I'm thinking of going to see it sometime next week in the theater. Is it worth it or should I wait for the BluRay?
  14. Looking for opinions on the best 18" drivers available.

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I've been quite happy with my stacked subs in my avatar which are SoundSplinter's RLP 15s with 4 passive radiators in each cabinet. They make the curtains dance, but I'm looking for another project. :hsd: I am going to sell these and build an even bigger sub and have been out of the loop for...

    REW Forum
    Hi! I've been working on our home theater room/living room and ran across REW during my research of room acoustics. I purchased a CM-140 SPL meter and have generated what I believe to be a valid set of measurements. No BFD or other EQ in my possession at this time. My primary goal is to...
  16. Building a sub, opinions please.

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    As my first DIY project I have begun building a sub. After listening to a bit of advice and reading some recommendations on here I have decided to go for a Exodus Audio Tempest-X driver with something like a Behringer EP4000 Amp to power it and a Behringer DCX2496 to split the signal. On...

    Hey, first off thanks for any help that you guys can provide. This looks like a great board filled with people that know what they are talking about. I have a Mitsubishi WS-B55 that my wife and I picked up from a co-worker of hers for $25 non-working. I was looking for a new project so I was...

    I have posted the topic here: http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/home-audio-speakers/22009-experts-give-us-lowdown-design-please-guys.html but not sure if the expertise is more likely to be in here, so figured I would link it for maximum exposure to the relevant experts. Cheers
