  11. Two Channel Audio
    When I started recently messing around with my 5.1 HT system, I thought I'd try listening to music again; it had been many years since I had listened on a regular basis - I'm talking 25+ years. I used to have a small record collection - LP's, 12", and a few very old 45's. Never really had good...

    I am building a single TC Sounds LMS ULTRA 5400 18" in a 4 cubic foot sealed box and plan on using it in my enclosed basement theater with dimensions of approximately 12’ x 19’ with 8’ ceilings. This DIY hobby has left me with quite a few subs and no logical place to put them. Is it even worth...

  19. Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I have four subs all in their own enclosure, and all on their own channel. I'm wondering if it's worth it to shape the signal of each enclosure using close mic measurements, then place for best response and EQ as normal. OR just place for best response and EQ. I think a lot of the ID...
  20. Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    What is the advantage of this amp over say an iNuke bridged to 1,000 watts? I imagine it will be quieter but at $150 vs $400 what's the justification for getting it? Will be pushing a Dayton Ultimax 15 in a 3 ft^3 sealed box. I have external PEQ.
