    F/S Axiom M22 and VP150

    Hi all, I have a pair of M22's in black, great condition, just some minor scratches that can only be seen if light is shined on them. Less than 100 hours, barely played, never abused or even turned up to remotely loud levels, smoke free environment. They are about a year and a half old...

    Finally!! I'm getting a new Toshiba 42H82 this week!!!

    Maybe I've only witnessed horribly set up tv's, but all of the HD rptv's I've seen playing dvds are just plain ugly. Native resolution of an hdtv is 1080 lines, so isn't playing a dvd on an hdtv like playing VHS on a nonhd tv? It sure looks like it...

    Help with new enclosure?

    Yea I would use all mdf too...problem is I had my friend cut the plywood already, since it's all he had lying around. I originally planned on using the ply to attach onto my current box. But now I'm thinking of building a completely new box and just supplying the mdf to him for the braces, so he...

    Help with new enclosure?

    Thanks for the response Anthony. I do want to build a new box and do it right. I was mainly concerned about the strength of the 5 layer ply. Do you think I should brace with mdf or the same ply?

    Help with new enclosure?

    Is regular 3/4" plywood (5 layers) ok for a sub enclosure? I plan on bracing with either the same plywood or mdf... I have an all mdf box already built for my av12, it's 3.5 cu-ft. Problem is it vibrates and rattles once the volume reaches moderate levels. When you put your hands on the side...

    Effects of speaker placement?

    I'm trying to increase the response of my speakers between the frequencies of 100-800hz. How would I do this with placement? Moving the speakers closer to the side walls, rear wall, or both? Also, if the mid/bass driver's distance from the rear and side wall are equal, how would the sound...

    Suggestions on selling my current speaker setup...

    Seth, if you must buy any of the polk surround packages, I wouldn't get anything under the 7600. Any series under that has 3 1/4" drivers that just won't cut it in a big room. Polks are good speakers, but there are a lot of other companies that make great speakers as well for around the same...

    stuffing the speaker

    You can buy it at walmart for a couple bucks per 12-20 ounces. It's polyester fiberfill. If your titans sound fine to you then I wouldn't add any more stuffing. If they sound a bit hollow to you, then adding the stuffing will solve that. Sometimes companies screw up and dont add enough or any...

    Haha, look at my bass DBs

    Try using the phase control. Play around with various levels such as 1/4,1/2,3/4, and 180. I get different frequency responses with each of the above settings and have smoothed out many, but not all of my peaks and nulls.

    Is my new enclosure STURDY enough?

    I just attached the braces to the panels using wood screws(drilled from the outside). I previously used only brackets, now I have both. I'm hoping that helps improve the rigidity. I'm going to just add more weight rather than more panels. I'm curious though, if I don't add any additional...

    Is my new enclosure STURDY enough?

    By pounded I mean putting your hands on top of the sub and feeling as if somebody was punching the top from the inside... I'm worried that my enclosure isnt rigid enough, although I built it like everybody else does...atleast I hope I did.

    Is my new enclosure STURDY enough?

    Well I finally finished my ported 3.5cu-ft downfiring av12 sub + Rythmik amp...and it sounds AWESOME. Only thing is when I play it at around -5 to -10 from reference levels in my 3000cu-ft room the sides and mainly the top of the box feel like they're really getting pounded from the inside. I...

    How high should my sub legs be?

    Hey guys, I'm putting the finishing touches on my downfiring av12 sub, just wondering what the most typical height for legs is? I was thinking 4", does it really make a difference if it's 3" or 5"?

    Length/trimming of Precision Ports...

    Thanks for the help Brian, but don't you mean 17" for full length due to the flared ends? Also, when calculating the port length using the manufacturer's equation, do I take into account the volume of the driver and the port for my vb(volume of box)? Or just the driver's volume? My box is...

    Length/trimming of Precision Ports...

    Hi all, After following the instructions for determining the lenth, my Port length comes out to 14.6 inches. Does that mean I have to cut 2.4 inches (17-14.6) off of the center tube?? I don't see any other way, but I'd like to make sure. Thanks

    Gorilla Glue?

    Hi guys, I'm about to glue and screw my sub together this weekend and have some questions about what glue to use. My concern is that a couple of my mdf pieces are not completely flat, none of the pieces at my local HD or Lowes were perfect cuts, so should I use these polyurethane glues that...

    Gone into overload

    Do you have midnight mode on? If you do, turn it off and you should most likely be fine. Have a friend who had the same exact problem, midnight mode was the cause. If you check your manual it says that turning this feature on will trigger overload at times.

    All amplifiers sound alike.........

    I've always wondered why there haven't been real test measurements to see if amps sound different...The way I see it, just switch some amps around with everything else in place and measure the sound levels for a bunch of frequencies? Or am I stupid to think this? -Brian

    How to make my tempest better

    About those spray on sound dampeners...does anybody know if there's a difference between what PE sells and the rubber automotive sprays that you can buy at pepboys for half the cost? Ron Stimpson used these "rubberized undercoating" sprays from pepboys on his DIY sub project page. Wondering if...

    Thermal circuitry for 350W amp

    Bruin, Sorry we "hijacked" your thread. Not many people if any on these forums have experience with the rythmik/dvc combo so it would be best to send Brian an email. He usually responds very quickly.

    Thermal circuitry for 350W amp

    Tony, have you also tried the av12 with the PE 250w amp(not sure if you have it)? I'm trying to decide if the rythmik is worth the extra.

    How to make flared PVC ports?

    Thanks for that info Tony, I was reading the instructions off psp-inc.com and didn't bother to read after the equation... "3. Trim center tube to 5" shorter than Lv from step two." Missed that...hehhe. Looking foward to some pictures of your new box. If you don't mind me asking, do you...
