    I used to have one of those "package" surround sound systems that had all the speakers including the sub wired with regular 2 wire hook ups. I bought a new Sony amp for more power and extra HDMI ports. Everything is working great except that the Sony amp uses an RCA jack for the sub. I cut and...

    I'm considering a dual opposed AV15H project. While reviewing the wiring diagram for parallel connection, I noticed the pos and neg wires split and go to each driver. Is it best to run two wires from each binding post or split the wire?

  8. DIY Speakers
    Hi all, Most of my experience building speakers comes in the form of the many different subwoofers that have spent time in the back of my vehicles. I've been installing car systems for years, but the only things that require any sort of thinking are tuning the subwoofer enclosure and setting...

    I'm preparing to run wires for my theater room and my wife and I love our Wii. The only concern is the sensor bar that must be beneath the TV or projector screen. This is causing me to place the Wii console beneath the TV (not in the control room), so I am planning to put 3 RCA jacks beneath...

    Great article on speaker wire. One related question is on bi wiring my B&W Speakers. Does Bi Wire have an audible difference than straight wiring? Thanks for any feedback on this.

    Is this possible? When wiring in series that is a 6 ohm load. I have come across 2 eD 13Ov.2's for a great price, the problem is the the different voice coils. I would like to build a sealed enclosure with them for midbass. Can a nady xa-900 or ep1500 handle this?

    My favorite sub that is going back for a warranty situation. So in the meantime I have cobbled together a sub to use in the interim. This woofer is NOT well suited to the enclosure I am going to use it in but it is already on hand and only has to last a few weeks. Here is the needed info: I...

    I'm looking around on PE and I can't seem to find any cables that will allow me to hook up my pre-outs to a DCX2496 for example. I've found some XLR-->RCA adapters, but I was wondering if there are cables out there that are male RCA on one end and male/female XLR on the other. Thanks! :)
