  1. Need help measuring neighbors woofers

    Care Chapel
    I live in an apartment and it is horrible. This guy plays this stuff 24/7, stopping for maybe 3 hours on a good day. It is ALWAYS going at one level or another so that it dominates every other sound in your perception. The landlord thinks it's no big deal and the police can't do anything...
  2. Old cabinet, new tweeter and woofers?

    DIY Speakers
    Forgive my ignorance - I'm a newbie. I have an old set of bookshelves with real wood cabinets (JBL 2500) from way back when. Would it be practical to take the components of say a Wave Crest Audio HVL-1 and install them in the old cabinets? Or is a speaker designed for a specific cabinet for...

  8. Energy Take 5 woofers out

    Home Audio Speakers
    I have a set of older Energy Take speakers, one Take 1 center and four Take 2 satellites. Most of the woofers have stopped working completely. The tweeters work fine and the crossovers seem perfect. Even when hooking directly to the woofer there's nothing, no sound, vibration, it's like I'm...

    It will start this next Friday, the 28'th of September 2012. The pre-order will last until the drivers hit our door or until they sell out...whichever comes first.

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Well I recently made my plunge into the car audio world, and wow is it easy to get somewhat loud and clean. As a "staple" subwoofer, I threw a Kicker Comp c10" sub in my old ht 10" box...I'd say about 1.5 cubes tuned to somewhere around 35-40hz, and it actually it pretty decent for a $50 sub...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
