    Can't isolate hum in our HT

    It appears that we have been bitten by a ground loop problem. Or have we? We have been hearing a hum coming from both of our ACI Titan II LEs subwoofers. The hum appears to be coming directly from the amplifier backplane and not the woofers themselves. It can occur whether the subwoofer is...

    Who has SVS photographs?

    Does anyone have links to some in-room photos of their SVS subwoofers (mostly the 25-31 and 20-39 subs)? I am trying to get a feel for what they look like placed within a room. Closeup shots will not be of much help here, as I am trying to organize my "sales pitch". ;) Thanks, Michael

    Looking for updated subwoofer output data

    In searching the forums for subwoofer output data, the most recent one I could find is this post. Later in that thread it is commented that some of this data is out of date. Does anyone have a list with more up to date output numbers that can be posted or linked to? Thanks, Michael

    Low pass crossover question

    I have noticed in many cases that a low pass crossover is often sloped at 24 dB per octave. On occasion, there are options for a 12 dB per octave crossover and even an 18 dB per octave (Paradigm X-30) crossover. While I pretty much understand how the slopes work with respect to the crossover...

    Anthem AVM-20 Bass Peak Level setting

    Hi AVM-20 owners! Now that we have had the AVM-20 in our home for 24+ hours, I have finally gotten around to revisiting the owner's manual (kind of mediocre - I have seen worse and I have seen better) for the system's setup. One setting I came across was the Bass Peak Level setting, starting...

    Bryston SP1.7 is out - I need some suggestions

    Having waited nearly 2 months for the Bryston SP1.7 to be released (having sold our Lexicon MC-1 in early January), I find out today that my online source for the SP1.7 (offerred at $3200 delivered, much less than the planned $4300-4500 MSRP) has backed out. So, I am back in the audition game...

    SVS CS-Ultra: Is it musical?

    When I wrote the subject line of this post, I wondered whether I was asking the right question. Nearly every post dealing with the SVS subwoofers on this and many other online forums talk about reference SPLs, removing one's home from its' foundation, knocking pictures or drywall loose...
