    Sub Help

    I haven't owned an SVS/HSU/Velo ... but I did build my own sub and it tears apart my house. I also saved alot of $$$. The entire cost was around $400 CND. I would DEFINATLEY purchase a BFD (equalizer). So keep into account the funds for that ($150 CND). This is my current frequency chart for...

    Will this space be okay for an IB setup ?

    okay, so say one day I had anough $$ for dual 18's, would the space suffice ?

    Will this space be okay for an IB setup ?

    The storage area is 152 cubic feet. And if I were to make a vent it would be as large as a regular furnace outlet. Sorry, money is VERY tight. I'm stuck with the Tempest for quite some time so I can't even look at the AV18's.

    Will this space be okay for an IB setup ?

    One should also note that the floor to the second level is located on the roof of the crawl space. if I wanted, I could easily make a small vent to join the two areas together. this would then make 1100 square feet of additional space for the enclosure. would this benefit the IB?

    Will this space be okay for an IB setup ?

    My wife an I recently bought a house (woohoo :)) and now I have the option of trying out this thing people call the "Infinity Baffle". I currently have a 15" Tempest in a ported 194 litre enclosure. While I am happy with the Tempest, it's huge and always an eyesore. Also, I'm always wanting to...

    Ok, fixed BFD and replotted

    On my 1014 I calibrate my sub at -27. After creating a flat response with the BFD, the sub sits at 83db @ -27 on the 1014. 83db's should be okay but I wouldn't go louder when playing those tones.

    www.audiocircle.com Those guys have TONS of experience with digital recievers it seems. You'll probably have better luck and more replies going there. Good luck!

    how good is the pioneer VSX-1014 going to be compared to the elite.....

    Once again, don't trust the salesman. He probably knew the "cheaper" reciever didn't have the MCACC enabled. He's obviously trying to sell you the more expensive 55TXi. I own the 1014TX and I don't find the sound echoed or thin. Compared to my previous Denon reciever, the Pioneer is "SMOOOOOOTH"...

    Make sure you press the "auto surround" button on your remote. What you described happened to me as well, and it was easy to correct. And just to make sure, you are using a coax/optical cable right ? And your DVD player is set to "bitstream" or "all" ?

    Any Edmontonians have/hear SVS!

    Max - Nope. I chose the SBB4 due to it's smaller enclosure. It's basically a perfect 24 inch cube. I had a huge peak at 56 hz and a dip at 63 hz but that was because of my room and I flattened everything perfectly with a BFD. The sub is tuned to 18 hz but for some reason is 2db's louder at 16 hz...

    Any Edmontonians have/hear SVS!

    Sorry, I forgot to mention. You guys can always contact me through email ([email protected]) if you want to come over and hear a real subwoofer :). From what I understand, the SVS subs should sound very similar (and some even better) to my DIY sub. Just FYI, most friends that come over...

    Dodgeball - Dialoge distortion ? Or just me ?

    Hey all. I just finished watching Dodgeball with the wife last night and thought it was pretty good. However, I couldn't help but be distracted by some distortion in the soundtrack. It really pulled me away from the movie at times. My wife didn't even notice until I pointed it out to her, but it...

    Any Edmontonians have/hear SVS!

    I don't have one, but I have a Tempest in a 194L vented enclosure. I was leaning towards SVS but it was too costly at the time. I was looking at a PC+ 20-39 but it was around $1200 CND shipped+duty+taxes. Instead I built a Tempest sub for $400 CND and I am in bass heaven. I have a perfect flat...

    Wow! I didn't expect this: I think I'm done w/ analog amps (receiver or separates)

    Thanks Jose, that makes much more sense to me :).

    Wow! I didn't expect this: I think I'm done w/ analog amps (receiver or separates)

    This makes no sense to me. A speaker is an analog device. You can't just feed it a digital signal ....... This goes against everything I've learned from this forum and with personal experience. You have to have some kind of analog conversion before the signal reaches the speaker ......
