  1. Peerless VS. Dayton Who makes a better 12" sub?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am a newbie and I am getting ready to build my first sub in about 15 years and I don't know much about either one of these companies. I was wondering if the Peerless 830500 XLS 12" Subwoofer or the Dayton RSS315HO-4 12" Reference HO Subwoofer would be better for a ported HT/Music Sub...
  2. Which came first... the seating or the sub?

    REW Forum
    Given that listener location and sub location interact with each other, how do I go about determining the best location for my listening chair and the best location for my sub? Most of the guides I have seen for subwoofer setup assume that the listening location is already chosen. Thanks.
  3. Wire gauge for 20' run - amp to sub?

    Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    I'm remodelling our basement and turning it into a media/entertainment room... There's a small closet about 15' from where the equipment is going to be and I'm thinking about building an LLT sub in there in the future. It's about a 20' run end-to-end and far more convenient to run speaker...
  4. How do you get the most bass without a sub?

    AV Home Theater
    I am slowly building my first 5.1 system and I have a center channel, left speaker and right speaker. I will be adding a pair of surrounds soon. I may not add a sub for awhile because I still don’t have a TV yet (I'm using my 20” iMac for now) and a 50” plasma will be a large purchase. So...

  6. Why not both speakers and sub?

    REW Forum
    It seems that REW is aimed at measuring the sub or one speaker. Why not use a "Y" cable to connect both right and left speakers to the sound card? Wouldn't it be better to measure the frequency response of the whole stereo system in the room? Did I miss that in the instructions somewhere? (my...

    Does anyone know if Episode subs are good? My friend has a new one that he may sell. http://www.snapav.com/catalog/partdetail.aspx?partno=C5-SUB10-BLK
  8. Same EQ-settings with different sub?

    REW Forum
    Hi, I can´t get this out of my head... If I lend a new sub from a local dealer and test it at home - do I really need to change my FBQ-2496 settings if I switch the subs and place the new one at the same position? I mean, I have already done the REW thing and putted in the recommended values in...
