  2. Single LLT vs dual sealed vs dual small ported

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I built a 12 cubic foot LLT about 3 years ago and I am very happy with it. My issue now is that there is not much transparency with a single sub. If you sit in one corner the bass is amazing, but it drops off drastically as you move away from the corner. The LLT was my first build and I did not...

    Hi guys Just about to move into a new house, the previous owner has his surround amp and STB in a cupboard away from the location of the TV. He mentioned the receiver controls the remote duties? I've never really had any luck with remote repeaters. It appears he has one remote for the TV and...

  5. EQ Filters: Average or single measurement best?

    REW Forum
    I ran some sweeps with my subwoofer at 10 positions and then did an Average for those which I then use to create EQ filters. The Average looks pretty much as the middle most position of my sweeps so is there more "information" to work with for creating the EQ filters with the single...

  9. Dual SVS PB-1000 or Single PB-2000 or Klipsch R-115SW

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    So a while back my 8 year old Klipsch RW12d died on me. I debated going the DIY route, but I've scrapped that idea. I just don't have the time and I'm missing some important tools to complete the job which would make it an expensive and time consuming venture. What I'm left with now is...

More recent measurements and experiences have shown that this is not...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    So I was originally going to go with dual 24x24x24 subs in my setup. My wife said that just wasn't going to happen. But I was given the option of simply making a better sub than our existing one (eD A2-300). I am open to idea's and suggestions but here are the criteria: -24x24x24 max size...
