  1. If you really want a minimum $$ test pick up any new Sony receiver and compare an updated Marantz 22 series,HK 430 or if you need something new try the NAD C316 integrated and throw some power to them.
  2. From a previous post of yours it looks as though you already own one.
  3. A bad amp/preamp combo can be just as brutal on the ears.
  4. If using the same subs you can just use the second best place you find for the second sub placement.
  5. Sub crawl gives a good general spot for subwoofer placement for best performance. >link<
  6. 80 or 90 would be best based on the little woofers. If you have not done the sub crawl you are shortchanging yourself.
  7. Sub crawl should be the first thing you do. Google crossover slope if you are interested in learning more but in layman's terms it means how quickly the loudspeaker rolls off.
  8. Did you do a sub crawl when you placed the subwoofer ? Does the DSP offer crossover slope options ?
  9. Klipsch would have folded long ago if everything sounded the same, luckily many of us can hear well enough to decipher what sounds great to us and what does not. The bonus of having a tin ear = huge cost savings for you. The rest of us = pay dearly.
  10. Preouts won't work ? Never heard a decent soundbar, are you space limited or just asking ?
  11. Different subwoofers have different characteristics, you will have to recalibrate whatever DSP the receiver is using to properly tune in the new sub.
  12. Again, you quoted ODS123 with my name on the quote. On this page above.
  13. After you spend years listening to something and then change something in the chain you bet i can tell the difference, so could anybody else without a tin ear.
  14. I have 3 different model Sony ES CD players and all sound different, so even different models from the same manufacturer sound different. Same goes for every other piece of audio equipment i have owned, all had a signature sound of their own.
  15. Built properly there should be no difference in sound from one cabinet material to another.
  16. Can you just wrap a felt strip around this thing to protect stuff or are there sensors on the body that need to be unobstructed ?
  17. I know what i am talking about and so does the lumberyard, maybe you should read your link a bit better as well. " The actual weight of plywood varies by product and manufacturer which can make it challenging to predict the weight perfectly. "
  18. I was looking from my supplier not from one general one from the internet. 5 Lb difference 1/2" 4 x 8' stock just over 10 Lb in 1" thickness. MDF being heavier.
  19. The weight difference between MDF & Baltic Birch is minimal.
  20. I have a set of 8 gauge jumper cables, they work great.
  21. Because the sides went from 3/4" ply to 1" MDF helping that bass bin resonance at higher volumes. 1" of hardwood ply or 1" 13 ply BB would repair that issue just as well. My set is braced.
  22. Most of the ply used was furniture grade 5 & 7 ply Birch, Douglas fir was used if i recall along with veneered lumber core.
  23. My money is on he probably relied on his experiences in cabinet construction and took pride in using the best materials for the job.
