    VGA to YPrPb

    So whats the best way? I don't want to buy a transcoder because it just seems like $$$ dongle. Why can't I just rig up a straight cheap dongle to go from VGA to YPrPb? I know the timings are different, but isn't that what powerstrip is for? I have a Nvidia card, so the ATI dongle isn't an...

    Center What?

    Or at least that's how my dad thinks... We recently acquired some B&W 603s2, and a Nakamichi AV-10 and we are using our old kef 102/2s for our surrounds, but we decided to leave out a centre channel for now. Was that a big mistake? Right now we just turn off the centre channel option and have...

    Port Length

    If I were to build a ported tempest in a 142L enclosure, how long would, and how big would I want to make my ports? I do not want to spend money of flared vent kit, and I definetly don't want any wind noise. What tunning frequency should I am for? What would be the best port diameter? Thanks...

    I have designed a sub, its internal volume is about 2.3 cubic feet. In order to tune it to 20Hz, I would need a port about 34" long. I am wondering if it would be okay to make the port all curvey to fit it in the enclosure, or am I making a huge mistake even bothering trying to tune it so low...

    Does Size Matter?

    I'm extreamly close to ordering my parts to make my sub, but there is just one thing that I'm wondering about: On the adire page, it has suggested alignments, like the 25.5L, something, and something else, all with their respective Q values. I was wondering if I were to design my own box...

    Does this sound okay?

    Okay, here's the deal: I've been wanting to build a subwoofer for quite a while, and i've finally settled on this: Its going to be a 14x15.5x19.5 sealed box A shiva on one end, An AVA250 on the other I think its going to be mostly for music, but a lil' home theater here and there...

    What the?

    Alrighty, i'm a lil' bit confused, so perhaps you guys can help me out a little bit: 1) I am planning on building the 85L PR design from the adire audio site, and I was wondering what the true volume of the box would be, so I took the INTERNAL dimensions, and it works out that the volume is...

    Okay, mock me if you must, I know this is a hugely newbie question, but what does a pre-amp do? I mean, you've got a source, and you've got an amp, does there really need to be something in between, and why?

    I'm Lost!

    I'm really interested in getting into DIY audio but the problem is that I can only get so far without knowing very much about the terminology. I was wondering if anyone knew about a good web site that explained everything about Xmax, Vs, Vb, and all those other terms. Thanks very much.

    Just some questions

    I just have a few questions that I’d like to ask: 1) What would happen if I were to put an already high power signal (from a receiver into another amp? would it just destroy everything? 2) What’s the difference between a passive x-over and an active one? 3) What’s does discrete mean, when...
