  1. Small vented vs large vented Winisd question

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I currently have a 12 cubic foot vented enclosure and now I am switching to two 4.5 cubic foot vented end table subs on each side of the couch. While modeling in Winisd, I am showing the same output and response curve (within one db)if I add an 8db boost at 20hz to the smaller box. I tweaked...
  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...
  3. 4-way speaker system with multiple small wide-range drivers

    DIY Speakers
    This DIY loudspeaker system experiments with multiple small wide-range transducers in a multiway configuration. The idea is to join good directional characteristics to coherence and power handling. Another goal is to improve timing by controlling the phase with FIR filters. Please follow this...
  4. New Small HT System

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    I am new to HT being a long time 2 channel guy. I want to set up a new system in my bedroom . Due to position of 65" Panasonic Plasma in wall speakers are not possible, so on-wall speakers are my best choice. Anyone have an opinion on the following: Integra DSX-3, Martin Logan Motion SLM-XL...
  5. Newbie, DIY help. Small Box, 20hz.

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi all. I've recently stumbled across this forum while looking for building a small sub that tappers off at 20hz (at ~-3db). My current 6cuft box, isn't too high on the WAF factor, and I just picked up a set of floor standing speakers, but have no room to put them. So I'm looking for...
  6. Want to build a small deep subwoofer

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I want to build a subwoofer, something I'm currently lacking all together. The W.A.F. is low on this one. So I need to accomplish 2 things. 1. It needs to be as small as possible. 2. It needs to be as deep as possible. I'm thinking passive radiators. There has to be something I can build...
  7. 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...

  10. One compromise sub - small footprint - otherwise no holds barred

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am not as new as my membership would imply, I've just taken a bit of a sabbatical. Anyway - I've been searching this site and others for information on my requirements without a whole lot of luck. I think I get more confused because there always seems to be a factor I hadn’t considered...

  14. One small change gets big results. Sweetspot.

    System Setup and Connection
    Have any of you had an experience like changing a fuse and when you turn the system back on its all working together remarkably better. I cannot explain what it is that sounds better or why. Its not like hearing your favorite song its more like cleaning the wax out. It happens in small ways...

  19. small single build

    DIY Speakers
    Hey all, I want to improve my woodworking skills, so I thought I'd start small with a single driver build. I was thinking about if there was a way to be able to put a Line-in jack so I could plug my iPod into it. Any ideas? I dont know if the ipod can power it alone. It would be from line in to...
