But recommend at 1000hz with what order slope? We also have to take into consideration what this woofers is being paired with? The above is really key and you haven't provided enough information. If you are pairing with a horn, the size of the horn (in addition to the driver) can limit how low you ...

If you are paying for music, I like to order used cds off of Amazon instead of paying for a file and it is usually less expensive. Used cds are not like buying second hand vinyl. You only really need them to read once when importing them to your computer and usually they will read fine even if in pr...

I think it is worth trying. Usually DIY is over-the-top with better drivers, better inductors and better capacitors than you will see in a commercial design. The box often may be better built but depending on wood working skills might be lacking compared to commercial designs. If you have a box that...

The sound and craftsmanship is both fantastic. As for your concerning comment, I ask, did you read all the comments and pick out the 1 negitive and not read all said about the purchase of a set and how pleased that purchaser was/is. I will dig deep into that comment myself, being at both shows Fran...

I have had problems when I have set speakers back in a 'cove' such as you have or when I have put bookshelf speakers in a bookshelf. They never sounded right. I would just temporarily try moving the speakers out of the cove and out in front of the doors you have to the left and right of the cove. Ev...

I can't see how you could go wrong. Being able to use it at home, with your current speakers/system is the ultimate way to try it out. Is there a reason you would have reservations? +1. Nothing like doing a demo in your own home with your own gear. If you have this opportunity I can't see why the h...

Sometimes a wire is rubbing on the woofer cone and you just need to gently bend it away from the cone so it won't vibrate on the cone. Hopefully it is something simply like this but you would need to remove the woofer to check this.

I'm assuming from the name of the speaker that it is pretty small. The manufacturer probably has squeezed whatever bass can be gotten out of it. Lengthening the port will give more extension but probably roll off the bass earlier and perceived bass may be less. Likely the response is due to a shorte...

Always two side to every story and people conveniently leave out the parts that aren't favorable to them. What a sad transaction. It is a shame this couldn't have been worked out privately to have to people feeling good about the transaction. Maybe with a little better communication and a little mor...

Time for a moderator to step in and shut this conversation down. Yes, 'time to shut this conversation down'. Relevant to audio and relevant to the political conversation going on right now in the country regarding CBC radio. And the 'conversation' reflects the diversity of the various opinions on t...

I think you miss the big picture, and that is dangerous. In a capitalist system, you have to remove certain things off the table, or you face the abyss. Public broadcasting is as important as public health care, public education and public police/fire. I'm not sure how public broadcasting is on the...

Won't be there but would love to hear these speakers with the Audio note products at TAVES if you are making an appearance there this year. Really enjoyed the speakers a few years back.

I was thinking of trying out more expensive DACs. I no longer feel the need. These two tweeks have greatly elevated the sound quality of my Rega DAC R, while keeping its qualities. All for a whopping 134$! If the OP has gotten off the dac upgrade merry-go-round for $134, then that is truly a bargai...

A lot of people 'liked' the video with the nerf guns. It is also pretty apparent that a lot of people would rather buy gear instead of understanding room acoustics and properly treating a room. A lot of sales people are happy to take advantage of the ignorance instead of educating people. The other ...
