  1. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I would say my listening is split 50/50 music to HT. Front speakers are Thiel MCS1s driven by Sony ES55s bridged. I currently have an old Vifa 30W in a 5 cu ft ported box. It's not really meant to match up with the MCS1s or do HT, just an old box that was available. I'm leaning towards a...
