  1. Hi! I've recently added a klipsch sub (r-115sw) to my home audio system, and I was wondering wether to plug my sub and amp though LFE or a RCA Y-splitter. I mainly use my system for music and in regards to that, i've heard differing statements. Some say LFE is the best option for movies and RCA the best option for music. Others even say that for an untrained ear like mine, I wouldn't even notice the difference between LFE and RCA. So what i'm asking is, if my main use for my system is listening to music, should I connect my sub and amp through LFE or RCA? If any of you have any suggestions as to what cable would be good/compatible with my sub, I would be grateful. Thanks!
  2. I bought this from Amazon 08-26-2018. I can provide a receipt if requested. It is in great condition and was hardly used. Will ship in original box and packing. will ship for $35.00 UPS SOLD
  3. The wife is tired of my insanity. My Belles are up for sale and so is my DIY subwoofer and amp. The amp is about 3 months old (Crown XLS2002) and the subwoofer box is about the same. The two Dayton HF15 drivers are about a year old. It all works swimmingly and will melt your eyeballs and earholes. I'm asking $500 for everything. The crown amp is $500 new, the drivers are $172 a piece new. If you just want the drivers and the amp I can ditch the box. I'm in Northern CA. Would prefer local pickup but am willing to discuss shipping.

    Help Setting up Sub

    Hello Community, I have the sw-450 subwoofer and we just moved in to a new place so it's time to setup and recal everything, and I'm at a loss for the sub setup. My receiver has an auto-setup function with a listener mic, but how should I set the nobs on the sub? Should I be bypassing? Volume? I've seen a lot of mixed information, and I've even seen the "just experiment until it sounds good" suggestion. Can anyone give me a definitive answer? The rest of my setup is from the Icon series, so kf-28's in the front, ks-14's surround, kc-25 center channel. Pioneer Elite vsx-40 receiver. Thanks!

    PSA Triax

    I received the Triax sub today. I have calibrated it with the 4520, and it sounds great! I bumped up the bass on the sub from -8 to 0, and now when I watch TV shows I can hear the bass on them too. I never realized that tv shows had bass too, especially as to how deep they go... I have my La Scalas set to crossover @ 80, and the sub to crossover @120. The Denon required me to set the sub level to -8, so I let it and then raised it up to 0 when I was finished. When the Denon was @ -8 it sounded real good but now it sounds great! Boy, what a change this is from listening to the old KLH for 10 years! The bass is very deep and powerful! The first movie I put on was WWZ. I was not able to crank it up as everyone was home, but @ -20 it was sounding pretty good. My next movie up (for demo) was Tron... The bass on it is unreal, and that was @ -20 also! I also received my minidsp mic today, so hopefully I can run REW in the next few days and see how it looks. I only have 1 place that the sub can go currently so not much I can do about getting it flat, but someday I will have a garage converted to a HT, and then I will be able to do the sub crawl and get the sub optimized. All I can say is that even with a non room optimized sub it still sounds great! If you can get up the scratch to afford this sub you will not be disappointed!

    Sub for Jubilee's

    Looking for alittle help on what subs I should get that will go best with my Jubilee's for music. I went and listened to a table tuba with a 8' sub today and it sounded kinda flabby. It seemed more of a movie sub than music. The bigger version with the 15' might be another story or just more of what I heard. I want a sub that has fast- tight kick drum bass and I'm willing to give up alittle bottom end for better chest thump. Right now I am considering these: Tuba THT low profile. Danley dts-10 Danely spud JTR Orbit shifter Will consider any other DIY builds that might do the job. Appreciate any advise. Thanks, Mike.

    Do SVS subs ever go on sale?

    I'm not expecting any specific answers here, just a general inquiry if members here are aware of SVS sales, such as BlackFriday/Holiday sales...? I'm looking to buy the PB-1000, I realize for some people here $500 is pocket change and they'd say, "Just buy the thing already!". But for me, that's a considerable purchase and if I could wait a few months and save $100 or so it's something to think about. I figure it's a company that kinda sticks to it's prices? I know there is an outlet section, but the PB-1000 rarely is for sale in there, which is a good sign in my opinion. So, is anyone aware of SVS sales on their own site? I say that because I know they will go up on sale in B&M stores near me, but that voids the Bill of Rights that SVS provides. I want that 45-day trial, and the 1 year trade in offer, and the 5 year warranty. SVS reps tell me none of that applies (perhaps the 5 year warranty is still valid) if I purchase from a retailer. They set their own policies and don't have to adhere to anything SVS suggests. Thanks all!

    SW-12 Hum and or Buzz

    I've got an old SW-12 that I've had out of service for many years. I'm trying to get it to function properly again. I plug it in and I hear a humming or buzzing sound. It could be a 60HZ sound but the plug that comes with the sub does not have the third ground plug. It is simply a two pronged plug. I hear the noise whenever power is going into the unit. It does not matter if there are any connections made or not. I hear the same noise with it connected to the LFE RCA on the AMP. I hear it when there is nothing connected. The volume of the noise is always the same level whether or not the volume on the sub is all the way up or all the way down or if the volume on the amp is muted or high. When you pass a LFE signal to the sub, it still makes the humm but otherwise functions properly. I get LFE frequencies that sound reasonable and all of the control knobs on the Sub appear to function properly. Is there anything that I can do to "fix" this noise other than taking it to a repair shop? What might be causing this noise? If necessary, I could mic the sub and record it and post a .wav file here.

    I know nothing about subs...

    As the title reads: I know nothing about subs... My current setup as of yesterday - Fronts: RB-35 Center: RC-62 Surrounds: RS-52 Now, the hardest part is going to be convincing my wife that we NEED a sub... Whether this is true or not, she will not likely be receptive to spending another $300+ after I just picked up these RS-52 surrounds for $220 this week... So. Who is willing to educate me? Here is what I want to know: - Will a sub really make a difference? (my guess is yes, it will) - I can probably get away with buying a Polk PSW10 on Amazon (under $100), but is it really worth it? Better than nothing at all? - Ideally, what's the sub to help round-out my system? (I'm assuming RSW10 or RSW15 would be the suggestions?) - Assuming my budget cannot allow the two subs mentioned above ^, what's the "next best thing" - doesn't have to be Klipsch, but preferrably... More questions about subs in general: What's the typical lifespan of a sub for HT? I'm guessing most people just leave them on 24/7? Or is this something you turn on only when playing certain movies, games, albums,etc.? Do you leave the sub on when watching the news? I am happy with my current setup. I'm waiting to pick up the RS-52s this weekend so I'll get them mounted and see how that changes the sound in my room. I'm at a 5.0 setup. Moving forward I think a 5.1 would make sense. I just need to "feel" the difference, and have a little help here with justifying the purchase! Cheers all!

    PB1000 or SB1000

    Ok, new thread... You've all convinced me I should get a sub. You've also convinced me I do not have entry level gear and I should work on refining my current setup once the sub is hooked up... I think I've narrowed down to either the SVS SB1000 or PB1000. I love that they offer 45-day trials on their equipment - true testament to quality? I also realize that offering such a service means you are paying for it somewhere... For those who do not need to trial the sub, they may think these subs are overpriced. I will likely buy one in the coming month or two. I know I can just pick one and if it doesn't work out I can return it and get the other one. But which should I try first? Ideally I will be happy with the first purchase and not have to return it. That will keep the buyer and seller the happiest! So, here's my breakdown: RB-35s as mains RC-62 center RS-52 surrounds The room is 19x15' with 12' vaulted gable ceilings. There is a 6' opening to the room by the kitchen and the TV sits adjacent to this wall (so on the 13' side). I'd say 50% is video games, 25% movies/shows, 25% music. If I'm missing some info to help the decision let me know. So, ported or sealed? I know there are personal preferences and I should test them out myself. And I plant to. But should one first over the other? It's like test driving a car... Do you hop right into the Turbo model or do you drive the eco first? I'm leaning towards the sealed sub based on reviews saying it's "punchier" and "cleaner". I don't want to piss off the neighbors, we just bought the house! haha. But I want to round out the sound my system is currently outputting.
  12. Need some advice on how to setup outdoor speakers 2x AW-650 2x AW-400 CA-800TSW (150w 6ohm) Sony STR-DN840 (7x150w @ 6ohm) Only have the 650s hooked up right now and they sound great. Should I get a simple 2x100w amplifier to power the passive sub? Noob to home speakers so any advice or a simple typed out diagram should help.
  13. Hi I do not find information about the technical specifications of the Klipsch sixes, I need to know if the amplifier is class AB? What sensitivity do they have? Which sub would be the best to use with the Sixes? Is the amplifier with FET circuits? Thank's Salva
  14. Hi everyone, I'm interested in upgrading my system to R-15PM monitors with a small sub. I would like to listen to high-res audio-files mainly through my Computer/the R-15PM's integrated DAC but I can't find any information on what the dac is capable of. As the speakers will be placed in a small room, I wonder whether the R-10SW is big enough as a sub or if the R-12SW is a very big step up. Thanks in advance for your answers, Tim TL;DR: What are the specs of the R-15PM's DAC? How big is the difference between R-10 and R12 subs?
  15. Downsizing my collection so this is up for sale. It's a 15" Klipsch woofer (I'm not sure which model) in a custom built box made of MDF and Walnut Veneer. It's ported and the box is pretty well made (made by a local carpenter). Has a very high WAF as well since it doesn't look crazy and has a nice wood grain on all sides. Also included to complete your setup, is a HSU Research Model 500 Amplifier. It's has 500 watts and can be configured to your unique set up with multiple hookup options. I do have the original box for this. In addition, I have the following crossover chips included: 34hz, 51hz, 75hz, and 62hz (not pictured as its installed in the amp). Bass on this setup is great. Very deep, low, musical with plenty of power to rock the whole house if you so desire. Amp alone was $500 and sub and box w/ sub could easily fetch $200. I'm selling the whole setup for $350. Due to size and weight of sub and box only local pickup in Santa Clara, CA (40 minutes south of San Francisco). It's also set up so you can come audition in my home. Message me your number if you are interested.

    To high pass or full range?

    Greetings all, Seeking consensus regarding using a high pass or full range for my subwoofer. Two different techs at the subwoofer manufacturer garnered two different responses. McIntosh rep says high pass. Seems to me on a "common sense" level that filtering all that signal through the sub , then back to the main amp would degrade that "McIntosh sound". Thank you in advance. I don't know much but I'm learning. System: McIntosh MA5200 100 watt Heresy III speakers SBS SB-2000 500 watt, 1100 peak

    RW-10d died...

    I have done a search and am not finding much for results, but my RW-10d died the other day. I turned it on, it made a crackle and died. The fuse is blown, but the board looks fine, no blown or melted resistors. I found one post where the users had replaced the MOSFETs and stated theirs were working again, but that was almost 6 years ago and I was wondering if it was still working, or did it at least last a year or two? I know most people replace the plate amp, but that's almost half the price of a new sub and I would prefer to not do that. If it comes to that then I will just upgrade to a new one, as long as they're not having the same problems as I see many have. I contacted klipsch for advice and have yet to hear anything back from them also. And, if I can't fix it, what is comparable as a replacement?
  18. I have the Promedia 2.1 (the one with the power switch and transformer) system for my PC. I have had for some time now. My absolute favorite speaker. I had a couple of issues in the past that I repaired like Din plug and scratchy volume. Several months ago, I was listening to some music at a high volume. After 45 minutes, I noticed that only one speaker was working and could not hear the sub. I checked the speakers and they were fine. Opened up the sub and found a blown fuse on the HF amp. Now HF speakers work fine but the sub is very low in volume even though the adjustment on the pod is all the way up. I checked the sub and it is not blown. Measures good and tested with another audio source. Connected another sub in place and still had low volume. When I looked at the LF amp, I could see that the board was very discolored due to heat. I removed the board and found R16 and R17 to be loose. I then cleaned up the solder pads and reinstalled the resistors. I checked the fets and they seemed to be ok. I checked all the other parts for bad joints. Didn't notice any components to be damaged. I was wondering if there was a service manual for the original Promedia 2.1 (the one with the power switch and transformer)? Does anyone know why the audio would be very low? Thanks boB

  20. Hello all, I have an KSW-15 that has been in storage for ever but finally got around to setting it up and the subwoofer has a rattle in the speaker itself. LFE hooked up and begins to rattle not much beyond a low volume level. Pioneer 1020 amp and tried a few settings on it. Removed the speaker and nothing obvious is wrong. Can anyone recommend a replacement subwoofer, I prefer to replace just the subwoofer. Used/new.. maybe klipsch? Other brand?

    Subs to go with Klipsch THX Ultra2 System?

    Hi, I'm a new member to the Klipsch family and I have some sub questions. I purchased the THX Ultra2 system without the subs a few weeks ago and now I am ready to add one or two subs to the system. The Ultra2 speakers sound amazing but the old Velodyne CT-120 sub I am using just isn’t up to the task. One or both subs will be placed in cabinetry with openings that are 23.75" H x 22.75" W x 22.75" D unless I can place the subs in the room without giving up too much floor space. The media room is 18' x 24' x 9.' I haven’t listened to the Klipsch THX Ultra2 Subs and I was wondering if they are still considered to be great subs? Has the THX Ultra2 Subs’ performance been surpassed by newer subs introduced by other companies? Do the THX Ultra2 Subs integrate with the rest of the Ultra2 system better than subs made by other manufacturers? The following subs are being considered along with the Klipsch THX Ultra2 Subs: SVS SB13-Ultra Funk Audio 18.0C JTR Captivator S1 Paradigm Prestige 1000SW Seaton Sound SubMersive HP+ Seaton Sound SubMersive F18+ The Seaton subs are too big to fit in the cabinetry but they are an interesting option. I will be able to listen to the Paradigm 1000SW at a local dealer but not the other subs.
  23. Hi guys, not sure if anyone has any of these or if I will just succumb to making my own. I need a pair of internal sub wires. One for positive and one for negative terminal leads with female adapters on each side. Figured it was worth a try to see if anyone had a pair floating around that they didn't need. Thanks, Tim
  24. These are $1999 new, get one local (near Columbia SC) for much less and hear before you buy too! Both are in perfect condition and used less than a year. All packaging included. I have two of these available, both received in March 2015 direct from SVS, ordered in late February 2015 direct from SVS. Order number and order email will be provided too. $1550 price is for ONE subwoofer, but you are welcome to buy BOTH for $2950 if you bring cash and drive to my home. My wife has always hated how big they are and she finally won so I bought much smaller subs that do NOT go down to 14Hz like these massive subs weighing 155lbs each. These are serious and great looking subs. If you are price shopping, note that these have the newer more powerful sledge amps, while the older ones you see on ebay have the older style amp. I can also provide a copy of the original order for warranty purposes too, there is more than 4 years remaining on the warranty (between you and SVS)! These are very high quality and can do less than 1% THD at normal volume level (100dB or less) in a well treated room and can even hit those 120dB peaks if you want them to for movies. Very versatile subs as they can be used in three modes including sealed, ported 16Hz or ported 20Hz. They easily went down to 14Hz in my room +/-3dB. Any audiophile would love these, they are that impactful and accurate. NEAR COLUMBIA, SC. WILL NOT SHIP RIGHT NOW, MAYBE IN A FEW MONTHS THOUGH IF THEY DON'T SELL BY APRIL. PLEASE DON'T ASK FOR A SHIPPING QUOTE UNTIL APRIL. THANKS AND SORRY, I JUST DON'T WANT TO LUG THESE THINGS TO FEDEX FREIGHT UNLESS I HAVE TO.
