  1. Good evening Tarheel. I made a video a long while back (that keeps getting blocked then released due to copyright) that a/b'd some basic EQ settings to defend against this exact statement. While I totally agree with and highly recommend the option to employ a sub, to say basically zero output below 60 Hz, well folks can take a listen here:
  2. Sourcing material can be a chore I guess. I just used a couple ~13cm wide pieces of low-height charcoal egg crate foam. Could be removed anytime.
  3. Want my opinion? Seeing as you're getting a subwoofer, stuffing the ports with a chunk of acoustic foam will also help clean up their mid-bass response. That's what I did to achieve the sound in the video below. Wait until the end to hear the difference without any of the tweaking:
  4. The addition of a servo sub (Rythmik L12) greatly expands the capabilities of an already knock-out integrated stereo. Recent install at a massage studio.
  5. New video of yet another pair of repurposed CAT40. This time it's a buddy's system, driven with a trusty Panasonic and a pair of 15" servo-subs rounding out the bottom end.

    Car Thread

    We sold the wife's Saturn @ 314,000 and picked up a new car. The Ion was a 5-spd and she wanted another manual shifter, so we ended up having to custom order the Compass with a 6 speed. On paper these vehicles have a lot more in common than one would think.
  7. Yes, I know this thread is six-feet under, but.... For the record...the old klipsch logo with the small "k" is a variant of the "Univers Black" font. I say variant, because the marketing department still tweaked the height (reduced 25% by the looks of it) and tracking to taste. Univers was a popular corporate font in the 50's thru the 60's.
  8. Getting back into recording, albeit in a little more professional manner. Finally got around to posting a video about it. I used to do this stuff as a kid with an 'ol Zenith boombox and a couple of tired cassettes. The gear has certainly changed, but the fun factor is still there....granted, my narration skills on this one could've used some polish.
  9. Interesting that you posted this topic Joe. The Mrs. and I had a similar discussion about this the other day. After owning our system for over 14 years, I can say that it's alright to "walk" away from it for a while. Even if a "while" happens to be a couple years. There have been times where the system has sat dormant for months either in storage, or while away from home. Good sound is timeless in that regard...like a good book, just pick up where you left off.
  10. Thanks Elden. The mic's are Roland CS-10EM into a Zoom H5. The bass is definitely a little too hot on this one, and I'm am going to have to compensate in the future by knocking 3-4 dB out of the subwoofer channel anytime I'm recording....probably woke your HLS up though! 😎
  11. Haven't posted in a while, but got some new gear. Here's a video and subsequent walk around of the bedroom system. It's 2.1 for now. Pair of Frazier CAT 40 (Mitchell Acoustics) and my spare BF Auto Tuba (shown near the end) driven by the NAD c390DD and Mini DSP PWR-ICE250 respectively. Plan is to eventually have the two Fraziers sitting atop their own stereo subwoofer.
