    Got back from seeing Tron Legacy last night, and hearing the excellent theater's sound system struggle with the LFE output, I realized I was simply going to have to (finally) upgrade my sub before I can watch this movie at home. (Yes, I realize I have some time before that's a problem!) ;) I...

    OK, I use the SPL meter to do the 7 speakers using the test tones on my Marantz HT. How do I use a SPL meter on subs? Thanks

    Not sure what forum this belongs in. If the moderator feels it belongs elsewhere please move it and let me know where it went. A few years ago I built a sub system using a pair of Titanic 10" subs and a Rythmik Audio DS15. You can see the end result here...

    I am considering going with the SW-12B, the price seems good ($99). I realize it is an 8 ohm sub, but that would work well with the Crown XLS amps that are being clearanced out to half off prices. The Crown XLS amps are stable 8 ohm mono. My build would be for a medium sized room for 50/50...

    Hello, At a recommendation of another user, I may pair 2 subs to go next to 2 tower speakers, so my daughter can't tip anything over. I was thinking two Dayton 120's or the BIC V1220's?

    Hey guys, I have a 10" down firing ported sub now and would like to add a second front firing sealed sub, is it OK to have a down and front firing sub in the same system, and what kind of placement issues would I be dealing with? Thanks for your time. Jeff

    :sn:Hi, System eq subs only,(for now) using analog out from bluray player 1 output only to proceed AVP (sub only for vol ,distance and levels,do have the option of 2 stereo sub outputs for 1 for fronts? and other rears with distance,levels for each?) analog bypass to 2 revel b15 with internal eq...

    I would like to possible use a BFD on a pair of 18s by using only one input to the BFD, and then if they do not have a multi out, just use Y splitters to get signal to both subs. Has this been done and is this feasible? My velodynes like the use of a Y for merge the R and L inputs at the amp...

    Any word on the status of the new sealed subs? I was expecting to see some pre-order announcements for the 12" and 13" pop up about now.

    I'm running in circles with all of this awesome info in trying to figure out how to process sound in my subs. I am less than a week away from completing the first of two enclosures on my SDX15 and am anxious to integrate it with the rest of my system. I have an older Nakamichi 5.1 receiver...

    I'm amp and sub shoppin. I have decided (90%) on a pair of enclosures for two SS RLP15 and am looking at a single Crown XTI 2000 or 4000. What sub/enclosure are you using? Are the crossover features good enough that no other EQing or crossover is necessary? Would you recommend it? Would...

    I currently have two different subs one is a ported tc2000 in a 300 liter tube tuned to 14.5 hz. The other is a sealed tc2000 in an approx 4 cubic foot box. Each have their own separate amp and go through a BFD. I have a Yamaha 665 as the receiver. My problem is If I run both of them at the...

    Just curious, are the exodus audio drivers suitable for horn type subs (I know nothing about the horn subs or their various types - but I think it was called a tuba sub). I was trying to search for the thread that I saw where a guy said his horn sub (15") totally eclipsed his LLT sub in all...

    I'm currently using a BFD 1124 to equalize my SVS PB-13U. I prefer a house curve to a flat response as I listen to a lot of music. I also like the ability of the 1124 to store up to 10 different curves so that I can experiment with different curves and do A/B comparisons. I'm likely adding a...

    I am finally getting close to doing some subs for my remodeled house & I have no clue which direction is the best way to go. Where do I get the programs to help me figure out what size sub/box I should go with & also the number of subs? Or is it something some of you can help me with? I see...

    I'm highly anticipating SVS' new sealed subs. I have an SB12 which I think is great, and I've been eyeing the other sealed subs from the competitors that seem great (have either more output or/and most importantly more extension). I'm looking for a second system sub which is going to replace a...

    I have a set of Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 's with the sub that comes with them. I also have an older 8'' AIWA htib sub that i don't use anymore. is there any way that i can use this setup to in order to operate both subs. i'll try to attach some pictures of the back of the subs. one is rca...

    Another sub I've been looking at (for only 2 channel music use) is the ACI Force. This has a very interesting system for x-over, with two 12 db/oct filters that are independently variable. Seems to get good reviews. Anybody here experienced with using that unusual configuration of x-over...

    I"m thinking eventually replacing my cheap KLH or adding to it. It's working remarkably well with the BFD running EQ for me now. But you know how that itch takes over! And it's an ugly duckling in a living room to boot. I've been looking at Onix (AV123.com) subs for a while. Certainly look good...

    So, i was at my local Magnolia Hi Fi yesterday, and was looking around at what they had. I did like the Martin logans, very interesting. However, they had some REL subs that had great loudness, but were kinda boomy. Not only that, but there depth was lacking. When I crank my sub on some songs...
