  1. SW with squeaking and no sound issues.

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I got a great deal on a Miller and Kreisel V-125 sub, with a Klipsch driver. With everything hooked up correctly, it has no sound. When I try to adjust the volume on the sub, it gets very loud and squeaks just like a mouse! So when I grab the volume knob and try moving it from side to side (not...

  3. What SW distance to choose in AVR?

    REW Forum
    When choosing SW locations another question came to mind when I was choosing from two different distance settings to make in the AVR. I tested different distance settings and landed on 2.7m or 5.2m and they are both good compromises between L and R for support in the XO frequency at 80Hz but...
  4. Matching 2 SW

    REW Forum
    Hello I have bought a second sub and used REW to adjust the delay on the closer sub (named sub 2). With my minidsp I put in a delay of 3.4ms on “sub 2” and that matches the real change in distance very close. Both subs are pointing in the same direction and “sub 2” is on the left side and “sub...

  9. testing SW with panny DMP-BD55

    I noticed yesterday that my SW never came on while watching WWZ at a fairly high volume and usually helicopter scenes are pretty good for a decent base thump. My BD55 is connected to my Denon 3805 via 6 rca cables for 5.1. I have a Denon 5900 DVD player connected to the AVR via a Denon link...

    So I know there are a lot of plate amp options but I am looking for a cheap but ok plate amp to power a old sub that I have had for a few years and the amp is now deceased with the last words of a constant 60hz hum at 200 watts. Im guessing that the power supply went bad with what I think is a...
