    Veneer question

    I used a 20 mil paper backed veneer when I built my tower and center speakers. I'm now wanting to build the rear surrounds to match and I found a place where I can get the same species of veneer for significantly lower price, but it is 10 mil. Is there a problem with using a 10 mil veneer in...

    Feedback Destroyer...or something else

    I was thinking of getting a Behringer Feedback Destroyer to use as a paramentric EQ for my sub. Are there any performance drawbacks of using something like this instead of say, the onix R-Des, or the Velodyne SMS-1?

    SVS PB-12 ISD/v......just got mine....

    I previously had an SVS PB-10 and decided to upgrade to the SVS PB-12 ISD/v. I just got mine last week and all I can say is WOW! The PB-10 is amazing for a 10 inch driver, but the PB-12 ISD/v surpassed all expectations I had jumping up from the 10 to the 12. Anyone considering the upgrade should...

    FS: SVS PB-10 ISD in excellent condition (BLACK)

    I am selling a black SVS PB-10 ISD that is excellent condition. It is just over a year old and will have the remaining warranty left out to 3 years which does transfer to the new owner. It is not a B-Stock sub, I bought this new from SVS and it has been used in a 50/50 music/home theater...

    Bass Trap question

    I'm looking to build a couple of bass traps this weekend. Most of the DIY sites I've seen always show them round. My question is do they need to be round? Can I make them square instead, or is there a reason they are round? Thanks......

    Just completed my GR-Research AV-3's

    I must say they sound excellent (even in my crappy room, which is next on my list of things go fix), although I'm not completely done evaluating them yet. I've been more than happy with the project results and Danny at GR-Research is a HUGE help before, during, and after the project. I can send...

    Panasonic Digital Receiver question

    On the current digital models from Panasonic, like the SA-XR55K, what are the crossover setting options for the subwoofer? Are they selectable numbers or does it go off of a pre-set setting based off of the speaker size setting? Thanks to anyone who knows...... Never mind guys....I found it on...

    Wood Veneer...who's done it?

    I will be purchasing some thin/flexible wood veneer soon to finish some tower speakers I'm building. Some questions I have for anyone who might know.... 1. I'll put the veneer on the backs and top of the towers first so I'll have fewer visible seams from the front. My first question is how do...

    GR-Research question for John Garcia

    John, From reading this forum it seems you really like the A/V-2's. I'm currently debating on buying a pair of Paradigm Studio 20's, or building a pair of AV-1's. I use them in a setup that is about 60-40 movies to music. Do you have an opinion on which would be the best route to go? (I do...

    B&W center speaker question

    I've currently got a CC6 for a center. It seems lately that it just doesn't have the volume output I would like when I turn movies up a little (not overly loud though). Anyway, will the larger current 600 series model be a drastic improvement, or is it not worth the upgrade?

    XM Antannae location

    I have a question on the antennae location for an XM radio in a car. I'm considering the Roady2 and I'd like to place the antennae low on the dash, by the edge of the windshield on the side where the FM antennae is for the car stereo. A friend of mine did this for a while in his car and he said...

    SVS 20-39PCi compared to Outlaw LFM-1

    How do these two stack up against each other? I've heard nothing but good things about both, not sure which would be the best fit for me. I'll be replacing an Energy E:XL-10. The size and space of the unit does not matter to me. I want the best sound, not necesarily the most volume...if that...

    Question betwen Denon CD changers

    This is probably a dumb question, but I'm debating between the DCM 280 and the DCM 380. The only difference appears to be the DA converters, one is an 18 bit the other a 20 bit. If I plan on using the Coax digital output, does that matter to me? Won't I be using the DA converters in my stereo...

    I've will be getting a Denon DVD-910 DVD player and a Marantz 5400 receiver. For the best stereo cd-audio sound should I run through my coax digital, or a good pair of analog rca's?
