    Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    Introductions: I'm not very new to HT, been working on mine since the mid-90's.. But I tend to upgrade in spurts and live with it for years before going through another "growth spurt." At this point, I'm pretty happy with my setup, except the subwoofer amplifier. So it's time for another...
  2. Wanting more knowledge

    DIY Speakers
    Good Sunday afternoon to all! I am on this quest to build my own speakers. I of course would be using the work of another. Before I actually start, I thought I might try to increase my knowledge just a bit. Can anyone make a recommendation on either of these books? Ray Aldens Speaker...

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    So I'm planning to build 2 matching subs for my home theater system which will actually also serve as stands for my front speakers since they're bookshelf type speakers. What I've been thinking is that I don't need tons of bass, and I want to do it cheap, so I got looking at these Dayton...
