  2. Principles of Mechanical Isolation and Mass-Coupling To Control Vibration In A/V Systems

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Principles of Mechanical Isolation and Mass-Coupling To Control Vibration In A/V Systems Cones, dots, blocks of maple, blocks of marble, magnets, ball bearings. Do they isolate? Do they couple? Do they help? Are they a waste of time and money? It is up to us as A/V consumers to use our...

    Home Audio Acoustics
    Aloha! I live in a house that is on stilts and I was noticing quite a bit of movement "vibration" and I was thinking that wall or floor resonance could affect or color the sound just like if it were coming from the LFE cabinet but in a larger aspect. 4 way's of flex so to speak, with only a...
  6. Perf screens and vibration

    General Screen Discussion
    Im considering increasing my screen size to the 130" range. I currently have a 92" fixed 16:9. Making the screen larger would mean covering my in wall speakers. How much will perf screens vibrate or flutter with speakers directly behind them? My subwoofers would be behind the screen as well...
  7. Audio rack vibration analysis

    REW Forum
    Hi all, what is the impact of vibrations from a rack on a DAC, preamp or an amplifier? And if there is an impact, how exactly is it happening? I mean vibration induced by air waves from the speakers and/or floor on the shelves, structure of the rack and not on the equipment itself. I welcome...
  8. Best adhesive to laminate layers and dampen vibration

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am going to build a huge box and am planning on layer some half in ply I have with three quarter MDF.

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    Hi everyone, I have been scouring the net trying to find an optimal solution to quelling the noise from my noisy outdoor A/C condenser unit, and my search has led me (surprisingly, at least initially) away from HVAC forums and towards acoustics, studio, and HT construction forums. I have a...
  13. vibration or static in sound

    AV Home Theater
    I know this isn't really a home theater question. Please forgive me. I'm asking this here because I think someone (perhaps everyone) will know the answer. I purchased a Panasonic HD TV in January. Prior to that, I had a JVC CRT, which I bought many years ago. I have a sound problem with...

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hi All, I need an external sound card that has a reasonable flat response (for recording and playback) all the way down to at least 3 Hz. That means no low frequency roll-off. Does anyone know of a product that can do this? I was using an Onkyo MSE-U33HB, which is good to 0.5 Hz, but I...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I have my subs installed in wall and then plastered over. When the base is loud the whole wall rattles, is that something you just have to live with when you have the convenience of them being hidden?

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    Hi all, I am running dual SVS 20-39 PC+ cylinders, which are co-located a few feet from a gas fireplace. I have chased down and eliminated every rattle I can get to, leaving only one left. At certain frequencies and volumes, I hear a rattle coming from the fireplace, and I have determined...
