    Two Channel Audio
    Greetings! I'm curious about a stereo effect that I've been able to hear on some speakers but not others, and I would like to know how many folks on the forum have a system that will duplicate the effect.

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Hi all, I have done quite a bit of work on ensuring that all drivers are time aligned correctly for the listening position. Phase/polarity looks good too. Measurements seem to be correct and are easily verifiable in REW/HolmImpulse. With that said, I have an odd issue due to the shape of my...

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    I am a noobie here so the answer may be obvious. I am interested in building a couple of subs using the new SI DS4-18. On their web sites a couple of their specs are: Fs 17 Mms 561 g Cms 128.3 However if I input the Mms and Cms into WinISD the Fs is calculated as 18.76 Which should I...

    This is a continuation of my modest build that you can read about over here. I chose these drivers because of their compact size requirements, expected impact and relative cost. I have an odd shaped room and wanted more output to work with than not enough, so I bought two. So here's the...

  19. Trouble With Stereo Image

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I have been matching my subs to the mains by matching the impulse responses from 60-80 hz (crossing over at 70 hz, 24dB slope). The results for the bass are great at the crossover region. But I lose the stereo image. I'm thinking that matching the mains to each other at 70-90 hz may be the...
  20. Minidsp quality - high end stereo

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hello everyone. I was wondering if minidsp is appropriate for a reasonably high end two channel system. I listen to vinyl and cd. The system is a Cary CDP, Michell Orbe turntable, Herron phono stage, Supratek pre, Bryston amp and B&W 802 speakers. Is the minidsp of the same quality? Thanks.
