Need a new subwoofer for music > HT in main room
Well now my head hurts. So much information.So I've gathered a few things I THINK might be true(ish):High-level speaker inputs are a great way to integrate the sub(s) with your mainsLFE is great for HT, and REL takes signal from both LFE and speak... 
Heavy Center Channel Wall Mount
Just to add closure to this, I picked up a 13" Peerless CRT TV mount for $14 off of PartsExpress.com. I was going to buy it elsewhere until I remembered PartsExpress. Awesome. Why doesn't some company market CRT racks as center channel speaker mou... 
Heavy Center Channel Wall Mount
I went to all those websites, and none of them have what I'm talking about. Omnimount does have some neat stuff, but still, nothing that works for me. Nothing even close. I don't want to have to build something! 
Source of woofer buzz?
The rips are located at the apex of the curvature of the surround, at where a few of the bolts attach the woofer to the cabinet. I guess this just must be a point of stress for the surround, but it is foam, and decayed so much that I think I just ... 
Source of woofer buzz?
So the purpose of the cheater plug is to remove the ground loop noise from the sub by not grounding it? I actually own a couple of cheater plugs, just never heard them called that. I'll give that a whirl, thanks! I just have to find them... 
Source of woofer buzz?
When I connect the same signal cable to the ASW110, the buzz is not an issue, so it's not the signal cable. I suppose it could be the ground on the power cord, but I guess I'd just be surprised as it seems more like a woofer deficiency/mechanical ... 
Source of woofer buzz?
I just found a number of small tears in the surround of the woofer which are obviously the source of the air leak. I don't know if this is also the source of the buzz, but I guess I'm due to replace this woofer, and am now accepting ideas for a go...

Affordable HT setup $800-$1400 HELP
Thanks for the advice so far.I am not really set on PSB, and I've only heard the older Titans (v.2 or v.3, I think). I liked them, but they didn't compare to the Monitor Audio Silver xi stuff or the Paradigm Studio stuff, and nowhere near Snell. I... 
Affordable HT setup $800-$1400 HELP
I know this thread is getting longer and longer, but I just was reminded of Aperion Audio. I can get an affordable setup for much less than the prices listed above, but it would be the 512D's (similar to the Image B15's) for front and rear, would ... 
Affordable subwoofer for music cont'd
Well, the M&K was sold out from under me, and the seller of the ProSub 80 backed out on selling once I confirmed the desire to buy, so I'm back to square one. Suck.I'll continue to watch the auctions for Daytons Titanic MKIII's as well as the ...

Accorddude,Thanks for the opinion. I will more seriously consider the DefTech (I think it's mostly between the DefTech and the M&K, though I was leaning toward the M&K because I don't have much music that has bass below 35Hz). I am also lo...

Blkadr, Your response reminds me of a parallel situation with cars. I love Subaru's. I drive a '97 Impreza Outback Sport. Decent car. I'd love to be driving a 2005 Impreza Sti. Too bad it costs 3x as much, and I'm still paying the '97 off. Sometim...
