Just came across this thread. Before I read the whole thing, I have to say I want one of those suits of armor!!!. Now back to the reading.
LOL gmmmph . . . . . My grand kids named the suit of armor "Sir Robert". no kidding! He watched over everything that weekend of the build and after it was done, we toasted with an imaginary stein of the bubbly.Just came across this thread.

Yes I use the (sub-out) IE: the .1 effects channel to drive the XTi which drives the sub and is connected by an unbalanced RCA to XLR cord. I cross over the sub at 80hz most of the time but use 120hz for some CDs, music only. The other 5 channels on my Pioneer AVR run full blast through the various sound stage options included in the AVR. The "mains" speakers are set via the GUI for large. Those are AR 15" 4 ways 400 watt. The surrounds are AR 10" 3 ways.Well, seems like the LMS was the right choice for you. I hope to be experiencing some of the happiness you have had from your sub build soon. I only have paint and "ammenities" to go, , and assembly , of course.
Is your LMS on the effects channel- the .1 in the 5.1 setup?
What crossover do you use for HT duty?
Mine is going to be .1 effects channel. The other channels will be full range as they are now, but a filter will be in place to prevent extreme subsonics from the main 5 channels.
How is yours set up?
I just woke up (lazy day) and that just made my day already. It's normally to early to smile, let alone actually laugh out loud. I am totally disappointed in you HT people that think your too good to make speaker ****... an 18" LMS at 10Hz making a metal face guard on an armord suit flip up... SEALED! Look, now I made my smile go to 1/2 in disappointment :hissyfit:If I have the XTi volume set to high when playing a 10hz signal, the face guard on "Sir Robert" flips up.:yikes:
oh I totally agree! right now I'm blowing up the car audio forums with vids of the IB18 doing "Bass I Love You" free air, because that is a huge speaker **** song...but with car audio, SubSonicFilters are undefeatable, and no one knew there was a 7Hz note throughout the song, we thought the "super low note" was the 18Hz tone LOL!Hey! What good is DIY if you can't laugh at yourself and the silly things you think and do once inna while?
