  1. Rc-3 II will work really well too but I preferred the rc7 over the rc3ii if you put a gun to my head. The rc3 is a respectable center for sure in my opinion and no slouch. It's a no bullshit sealed center, put it whereever and it sings. Cross it at 80hz and no problems I have my rc7 in a built in and I have both porta plugged and I have my xo set to 80, works perfectly and nothing is muffled
  2. I like the GLS bananas the best of all. I bought knukonceptz speaker wire the last time, very happy with it, I got the blue one, very flexible. I've bought many things from them over the years, quality stuff.
  3. If budget wasnt a concern I would have absolutely put in klipsch but for the money at $130 a pair, I had to jump and get em. I have two more that I don't have a place to mount yet. The pool is 10k gallon play pool that was pebbleteched in 2012. Water is about 82 right now which is nice. The sound is mini coming out of all the speakers and it's pretty uniform in the pool. Its never perfect because of the different distances but the sound is clear. I'm staying away from subs, its what carries and will absolutely piss the neighbors off. It can get really loud but loud wasn't the point. Its supposed to be relaxing, I suppose haha. You put on ambient tropical tracks and you feel like you're in the Caribbean. If any of you have questions or need advice, absolutely ask me. It was a bear of a project but absolutely worth it.
  4. I finally got around to completing my project. I decided to implement a 70v system due to wire runs and simplicity of setup. I did have to buy external step down transformers but that's OK. I have 6 emotiva uom 6.2's connected to an outlaw audio monoblock 200 w RMS @ 8 ohm and an OSD 70v transformer. I plan to build some block enclosures around the speakers for a more finished look and to provide some relief from the elements. I thinking about doing a mesh screen front too but will have to see. I did some pipe trenching albeit just below the surface. The project took me about 4 days of work to get it done and so far it's been worth it. Its all connected to zone 2 on my UMC-1 and thus able to work with my sonos!
  5. So i did some more testing and I am pretty sure there's an air leak behind the port that I can't see or get to which is a source of noise in addition to horrendous port chuffing. I want to think that Klipsch wouldn't have designed a sub with terrible chuffing but anything is possible. At this point I think this has turned into a salvage project. It's disappointing to say the least but hey, the amp and DSP work and the sub too. I was surprised too, the p weighs next to nothing, looks like a bunch of spare parts slapped together. Welcome to class d haha. There's a guy selling another rw12d sub on Craig's for 100 which is ridiculous but would be fun to do a dual sub project.

  7. Btw, that build you did looks great. Is this sub even a good candidate for downfiring taking into consideration sag?
  8. I love my SVS subs, they hit so clean. The noise I hear is what I would equate to chuffing as a sound but it sounds like air being forced out a different area. Too many variables. I was debating building another box and probably will. Good way to hone my speaker building skills as it's something I'd like to do more of.
  9. I'm hoping that's the only problem which should be reasonably easy to fix but yeah. The glue i used before really fused it together sobthisnis gonna be interesting
  10. Rammat is a mass loading butyl deadening material to eliminate mechanical resonance in a cars frame. It's applied directly to the metal. They also have closed cell foam which takes care of other vibrations and resonances. I applied this to the port tube in the hopes that it would isolate the driver from the tube since they were touching to help eliminate resonance if that was the case. The driver could be faulty but I have my doubts. Suspension feels good and its working, even excursion, didn't see anything loose.
  11. I did that already. It looked like the driver waaa resting on the port tube so I put a few layers of foam damping material on it that's sticky which is what I played on top of my raammat in my car to help absorb any vibration.
  12. I bought a system from a friend that's moving and he had bought a rw12d from newegg a few months ago but this sucker is having an issue. When he first got it the port tube vibrated apart so I glued it together which worked great. Unfortunately that was months ago and now I own the SOB and when I start cranking it it sounds like the sub is bottoming out but isn't, you know, sort of the limiting noise. It sounds like cabinet resonance in the plastic or the front joints butnincamt pinpoint in and I can't get the front fascia off to remove the port tube to see if there is an air leak. One would think no biggie because it's already ported but I don't know what else it could be. Thoughts???
  13. My temp setup at work. Need new isolation pads, longer speaker wires, longer monitor wires and a torch to help clean off my desk so I can find my keyboard
  14. with the speakers close to the wall you get that hollow bass sound from time to time which is kind of irritating but i'm sure some acoustic foam behind could help. I go my black ones in my office and my desk is mid room so no bass issues and they are just wonderful. Only bad part is people keep leaning on them when they talk to me, i go RARARARARARA. I am trying to hock some other klipsch gear that i have that is extra and being unused, i want to get another pair for home use before they are gone. I love their looks. The new 220's just aren't as pretty.
  15. seas is supposed to make some good drivers albeit they are all pretty spendy. They look pretty good, i'd be interested in hearing them too
