  1. Picked up an old PSB Subsonic 6 for cheap

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I looked at Parts Express at the BIC and even though they are on a huge discount, it would still cost me over $500 with the exchange rate, shipping and duty. I ended up finding a PSB Subsonic 6 for $150 Cdn only 1.5 hours from my home so I ended picking this up. Physically, its in better shape...
  2. I have to regrill my PSB Subsonic 5

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I have a PSB Subsonic 5 which is still operating nicely. However, my cats were not so kind to the grill and I have to replace it. The grill frame is still intact. How do I remove the grill from the frame? Do you have any suggested products that are safe to use? What product can I use to "glue"...

  4. Subsonic subs for real?

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I just saw a pair of one-off Goldmund subs (I believe they are the Logos 3A infra-subwoofer) that have a claimed bandwidth of 10hz to 20hz. Enclosures are all aluminum, weigh about 700 lbs, 5ft. high, about 22 inches width and 17 inches deep. the only opening is a single 5 inch port in the...
  5. Low frequency pest control?

    Chat Box SWAMP
    I've been having issues with pests (rodents and roaches) because I live in squalor. The other day, I hooked up a subwoofer system that moves a lot of air. I'm pretty sure since all my walls in the entire (small) house are now steadily shaking and vibrating, all the creatures went away. I...

    Hi - I have two ported subs (Dayton RSS 315hf-4) running with correction with BFD and REW. I need a subsonic filter, the crown amp I am using (xli 1500) does not have crossovers or EQ. I need a subsonic filter at around 17hz to prevent overexcursion of driver? What other options for an...

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hi - I have two ported subs running with correction with BFD and REW. I need a subsonic filter, the crown amp I am using does not have crossovers or EQ. Can I use the BFD to create a subsonic filter at 15 or 18 hz to prevent overexcursion of driver? What other options for a in line subsonic...
  8. Subsonic filter kit

    Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    Hi I am looking at this filter as a protection for a ported sub: http://sound.westhost.com/project99.htm It looks good to me but is the phase/delay likely to be an issue? Direct quote from the project page; Well, that's exactly where it would go... Any thoughts? This posted elsewhere on the...
  9. Antimode 8033C Subsonic Filter

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I bought one of these from CSS a while back, and am just now thinking about putting it in my system. So as I perused the manual, it brought up some questions. Manual claims that the subsonic filter is set at 10Hz, bu the fr chart showed it to be much higher. Having an IB, I wanted to be sure...
  10. Subsonic filter

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I'm sure this has been covered but i cannot find it, so please bear with me. Would someone please explain the duties of a Subwoofer subsonic filter ? As i understand it, the subsonic filter is a passive circuit design that is essentially a high pass crossover for a subwoofer, that prevents...
  11. Database music with SubSonic bass !

    CD-BD-DVD Music | Vinyl Records
    Foreword: the LFE track is designed to handle 2-120 Hz for feel able effects and deep bass and normal bass ranges, more and more highend home cinema freaks are starting to install butt-kickers and similar sub sonic transducers, so they can take full advantage of the entertainment material in...
  12. What subsonic filter should I use?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I've modeled some 13av.2's in a 3cu tuned to 17hz, but now I need a high pass filter for them at 15hz. I'm powering these with a EP4000. That creates a problem for the eq.2 as Elemental Designs does not recommend them with pro amps (plus theyre out of stock for at least 100+ days according to...
  13. Subsonic filter with XLR connectors?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I just need a simple subsonic filter. I would prefer to have something with XLRs on it so I can stick with "normal" cables from my processor to the BFD, subsonic, and then to the amp. The filter needs to be adjustable, but not variable if that makes sense. I just need to get it set once and...
  14. Outboard subsonic filter unit

    Creative Sound Solutions
    I am looking for an outboard unit just to apply SS filter to my 2 subs to keep the ultralow stuff out & prevent overexcursion. I am looking for something that has two sub inputs and two outputs & that doesn't alter the signal in any way other than applying the SS filter at 10 or 15Hz. I am...
  15. Subsonic Filters

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Is the 18hz subsonic filter on the BASH 300W or the adjustable filter on the 500W the "high pass filter" that is required to prevent cone excursion? Please say yes! If so I will enter 300W and an 18hz highpass into WinISD and finally start doing some of my own modeling. Is there a certain plate...

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    Hey Gang, I have a question my sub has been making this noise it sounds like a sub that has been put in a trunk of a car and the trunk lid has that awful rattling noise when they don't use Dynamat for the lid. I was wondering if this is normal? Also I noticed that air is not coming out of the...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I figured this might be the best place to post this... Can anyone here model what the roll off on a 24dB/octave subsonic filter, set at 36hz, will look like? Just based on a flat frequency response, showing only the rolloff itself? I have a car amplifier with a subsonic filter and the manual...
  18. Is Subsonic filter same as a PEQ filter?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Can you use 1 filter on the BFD to implement a subsonic (high pass) filter?
  19. SubSonic Filter

    Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    If a 24dB/octave subsonic filter is set to 20Hz, does that mean 21Hz is unaffected, 20Hz is the least attenuated, and at 10Hz you are down 24dB? Thank you.

    Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    Hi ! I have built my subwoofer from an old SVS driver that i upgraded. I use a DIY 400 Watt amp to power it. However i hear noises when i feed it with frequency below 16Hz. I think its bottoming out. I need a subsonic filter to protect my driver. I came across a subsonic filter here...
