Picking up this Audio Source from J and R for 119.00 it has the signal to noise ratio rated at 95dbs as oppose to it's smaller counterpart that has a signal to noise ratio of 90dbs for 89.00. I'm using it for my two DIY subs so stereo isn't the big deal, so will the difference of 5 dbs be that noticeable in my current application.

Well, 5 dBv is almost a doubling of the noise level, but how much of that noise would be reproduced by a sub's limited frequency response is anyone's guess. For the small price difference, I'd go with the quieter one and then never look back.

Jerome,

If you are just doing EQ of your subs, have you looked at the Behringer Feedback Destroyer? Thats the cheap EQ of choice among many HTF members.

I have not looked at the specs of the AS units, but I would wager that they are 1/3 octave at best, which is not fine enough to do an effective job with a sub.

And the Behringer is about $100 so you would be in the same ball park.

I thought about the Behringer, my problem was locating it locally for immediate hook up. I'll see if J and R has it.

Surely there is a music store in Manhattan that carries Behringer. Perhaps Sam Ash or a Guitar Center type of place.

Most hi-fi oriented shops would probably NOT carrier it.

Good luck.
