  1. Ahh OK. Makes sense (I am not super up on the science but do under most of the numbers, I have worked in recording studios for a while).
  2. Figured as much but didn't recall that on the SBAF Loki measurements (though the Loki is 2x the price). Strongly considering this move. P.S. I find it interesting that the curve relaxes with lower amounts of cut/boost and moves lower in the frequency range. Its as if the 2k pole could double its boost/cut it would end up at 3k+. Wild. Thanks again for the exhaustive measurements, I'd also be curious as to what happens when say: cutting the 2k pole a quarter turn but then boosting the 7.5k pole by a quarter turn. Would it make the Q factor steeper on the upper end (the 2k pole)? The mind boggles...
  3. Beautifully done. Thanks, you're talking me into one. EDIT: is it me or is there a decent amount of deviation between the left and right channels at each stage? @Langston
  4. Super Best Audio Friends. I've been trying to find it myself. They ran pink or white noise through it and , while watching the waveform adjusted the dials. After the usual boost and cut, they started using the knobs against each other to make tighter, more pinpoint frequency selections. Its killing me I cannot find it. EDIT: https://www.superbestaudiofriends.org/index.php?threads/schiit-loki-eq-measurements.5153/ As I said, all I'm looking for is a 2-3db cut at about 1500hz. Just a nudge for the dozen or so records that need it.
  5. Same. Looked at the Loki but both the Bellari and Schiit have a pole at 2k. SBAF had graphs where they knobbed different frequencies using the paranetric curves agsint each other but none seem to hit the spot. Let me know how you make out.
  6. I'm hesitant to go down that rabbit hole but yeah, I'm sure I can make that happen. Was hoping this could be dipped say 2-3db with a parametric of some sort. DRATS
  7. I love my H4's, But some records have a bit of forwardness in the 1k-2k range. I watched GR Research's video on the Forte 3 and his measured the same. Curious on how I can alleviate this? I was looking at a Schiit Loki but its nearest adjustment is 2k and it seems like that will not work? Thanks In advance.
  8. Ok so question here as while I’m enjoying the speakers now greatly, my set up is exposed posed by the Sensitivity. while moving some connections on the preamp (turned off) I noticed some hiss from the speakers with just the amp on. When I flipped the preamp on that sound was almost completely eliminated but then while listening to either tv or records I get this quiet but audible super high pitched sound. I feel like the amp really grips these speakers and so I’d ideally like to stick with it. I do feeL the gain on the preamp is way high and part of me wonders if I should try the Schiit Sys again and if good with it sell the Quicksilver (which is interesting that people love Quicksilver amps but not their preamp). And look at like a Herron VTSP-3. With the SYS I can’t run a sub though (obviously). Thoughts?
  9. with a single channel running into the sub i had to turn it up a smidge. I played records long into the night and I feel like its close to being where I want it. Probably won't mess with it much more as I'll upgrade subs later in the year. Thanks though.
  10. Yes, my preamp outs are just stereo. I'm rolling with it as is for now.
  11. I found this. Not sure if its anything (technical sheet is light on technicalz) but for anyone searching... https://www.newark.com/mcm-custom-audio/50-20795/stereo-to-mono-signal-converter/dp/25AC5154?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI9PKe9OKJ6gIVHz2tBh2qegp-EAQYAiABEgIbvvD_BwE&mckv=sqXCaV1K2_dc|pcrid|434136793605|plid||kword||match||slid||product|25AC5154|pgrid|100464452786|ptaid|pla-903350906313|&CMP=KNC-GUSA-GEN-Shopping-NewStructure-Top-Products
  12. The hardest part of this is that it’s temporary. Later this year I plan on upgrading my sub to Rythmik which has stereo ins. So I’m trying to cheap out and do something that has to last a couple months tops.
  13. Looking into this now. Seems straight forward but I haven't soldered in 10,000 years. In fact I just dug out my pen and I think I am out of solder. DRATS It will cost more to DIY but I may go that route anyway because I am not all that smart but like to learn.
  14. Well not to be a d*ck but the cable I purchased does not specifically state whether it splits or sums a signal. Either is what a Y cable can do. The can feed TWO INPUTS or feed TWO OUTPUTS.
  15. Ahhhhh, so that sounds like what I had happening. So is there a cable to do what the linked article specifies?
  16. @baron167 @Islander Sorry, I didn’t mention. I’m sending to the sub from stereo outs on my line stage. Then I was using a Y adapter into the sub.
  17. The Y sums the stereo RCA and is plugged directly in to the sub. The sub is a basic home theater sub that has just a LFE in.
  18. So my Heresys are sounding really good and I decided to add my cheap HT sub as I had before. Whats weird is that with the sub plugged in all my preamp outputs are send a summed signal. When I play a test track with panning, both channels are summed and sent to both speakers. Weird. So after unhooking everything And reconnecting I have discovered that the Y adaptor summing the left and right signal to mono which then plugs into the sub is the cause. I have no idea how it’s sending back a summer signal to both sets of outputs. Bizarre! So my question is: how is this possible and could it be a faulty adaptor? If I run one of the channels into the sub (no Y adaptor in the chain) it’s fine. If the Y is in the chain but the sub is off then it’s fine. Thoughts??
  19. I run an Odyssey Khartago Stereo fronted by a tube preamp (Quicksilver Line Stage Preamp). It drives my H4’s with authority BUT the Odyssey is a high gain amp so there’s a bit of hiss even at the sitting position (9+ feet away).
  20. Still allowing things to happen and also trying not to drive everyone crazy with my dysfunctions. I have to say that it’s amazing that one could have a 7” woofer rated at -3db @50hz and then hear a 12” woofer rated at -4db at 48hz with the only other difference being front vs rear port but the bass output is startling. STARTLING. As the Quicksilver does phase invert I remembered at work that I didn’t reverse the speaker wires. Did that first thing home and I don’t know that I hear a diff. I also put a piece of .65” foam board under the rear of each speaker to aim them forward more (vs up) and today the teeter seems far more assertive. Duran Duran S/T (Original pressing) The Cult Sonic Temple (30th Anny repress) Sisters Of Mercy Vision Thing All had very extended tweeter action. I will probably run a sub as planned but holy crap man, if the Heresy makes this kind of bass I’d have been F—-ed with Cornwalls 😱 that’s it for now. In a week or two I’ll swap the Focals back in and then I’ll know. thanks again ✌🏼
