    Buckle in - this is a lengthy one. TL;DR: Building a flex theater with ridiculous aspirations and need help with speaker, sub and sound panel placement based on room layout. The idea was to have a generic entertainment space, so I wouldn't technically call this a "home theater," more just a...

    Sub Woofer question

    I'm looking at a budget 5.2 Sony STRDH receiver but it requires a powered sub. I have an older Titan II LE powered sub from my two channel system that I'm not using. It has frequency and level adjustments and RCA line inputs. Would it work with the Sony or do I need to buy a new sub?

    2 Sub outputs on receiver and 2 inputs on 1 subwoofer..use both?

    My receiver (Denon AVRX3500) has left and right subwoofer outputs. I just purchased a subwoofer that has left and right inputs. I don't really want to use a second subwoofer. Should I connect cables to both inputs from both outputs on the receiver or should I just connect one of the two channels?

    Problem with Velodyne HGS-15 powered sub

    In the beginning, it was making a loud buzzing, or fluttering sound that could be affected by tapping on the cone which lead us to believe it was the accelerometer. Since then, we have removed it. How can I replace this part?

    I have a JBL L8400P. I got it in April 2009 and it just had its third failure. The first was a melted voice coil and the second was a friend amp. Now, it goes out of stand-by, then immediately back in, which makes me think a capacitor failed, but haven't taken it apart yet. So my question is...
