  1. Thanks John, you are correct. Been there done that. In this case, my horn loaded subs are far superior so mixing them with the other subs doesn't make much sense. Well, this conversation is quite a bit different than the one on Audiokarma that I can't find on my phone. That one emphasized that although 'everything in your room resonates', a speaker enclosure resonates MORE. A lot of it made sense to me but wanted to get opinions here. I'm not gonna sweat it. I've got killer bass and I'm content. Just curious what others thought about this. Thanks for all the input.[emoji106] Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  2. At low volumes I'm not detecting anything. Like I said in the OP, there was a thread on this that I cannot find. This thread is not because I have an issue but more for conversation....like most threads here. If I eventually find it on Audiokarma I will post it here. As far as the humming bird goes, sometimes it's the little things that make a bigger difference that you might think....or hear. Bass is tricky.....if you can hear it. Or I should say if you can hear what it's doing to the system as a whole. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  3. Yeah but that could be one bad a$$ humming bird hanging with all those eagles.[emoji41] Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  4. On the other hand, these are large cabs with two 6" ports in each and are only 11 feet from the sweet spot. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  5. My guess is that at low to moderate listening levels it will not be discernable until you get north of say 85 to 90db's.....but that's just my uneducated guess. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  6. I guess another way to rephrase my question would be "is the unused cab making bass?" Also, is this a good thing, bad thing or doesn't make a difference? Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  7. I plugged the ports.....gonna do a little experimenting. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah, they definitely resonate. It's just a question of how audible is the resonating and how much is it actually affecting the sound quality. Bass is tough. It's harder to discern what it's doing compared to the mids and highs. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  9. ....because it's a ported enclosure designed to make sound. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  10. I've read in the past....now I'm having trouble finding this info....that having unused speakers/subwoofers in your listening room will resonate and possibly have an effect on your sound. If I recall correctly... ported, unused speakers were more susceptible to this because the bass from your speakers/subwoofers that are in use will creep into the unused enclosures and the woofers will resonate. In my case, I have two different sets of subwoofers that I switch back and forth with. The ported 18" subs when not in use are clearly vibrating when I put my hand on one of the woofers. Feels just like it's on....not thumping away....but vibrating even at low volumes 65-70db. I'm wondering that if this is actually detrimental to the sound, would it be worthwhile to plug the ports or do something else. Removing them is obvious but like I said I frequently like to switch subs because I'm mental when it comes to bass.[emoji41] Thanks! Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  11. Oh, and I forgot about it's subwoofer capabilities. Hmmm.... Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  12. A friend of mine got this preamp recently and let me borrow it. Very nice preamp. Sounds great and with the digital inputs, XLR option etc. it's a winner. Good luck with your sale, Tom.[emoji106] Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  13. Still for sale. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  14. Crown Macro-tech 3600vz power amp. This is the best bass I've gotten out of any amp that I've owned. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  15. I don't think so but I can't confirm that. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
