Subwoofer with Floorstanding Speakers?
@bigtex22 -- Still enjoying my Sonus Faber Olympica Nova Vs in our den where I mostly listen to jazz. However…I had a nostalgic experience tonight and streamed up some Def Leppard and cranked it LOUD. With this kind of rock, I am missing a littl... 
Do audiophiles creat the high prices we complain about.
  Do audiophiles creat the high prices we complain about. I do think we do it to ourselves by greatly considering pricing when we buy. A manufacturer has to have certain price points or their gear wouldn’t be considered worthy. I have had audio... 
Line Array VS Traditional Box Speakers, Why not just get the line array ?
@johnk — Audiophiles will tell you pro audio suxs till it's remarketed to them at a very high price than its the bees-knees. Exactly.   
How important is spending time with your gear?
@erik_squires -- How important is it to spend time physically close to your gear, vs. enjoying it's output?  If you could have your gear in another room, or closet, and you were left with just your speakers with no audible downside would you do ... 
Homage to those who are pleased with your audio rig
@mahgister -- We can live happy at 50 hertz.... I am.... What has surprised me is how much a hard deck of 50-ish Hz actually suffices. For music you get a long way with this, and it's certainly much more important how >50Hz is reproduced t... 
Homage to those who are pleased with your audio rig
@2psyop -- I am now pleased with my two audio systems. I am enjoying the music. Both are, by most measures, humble audio rigs but.... I am enjoying the music. Great that you’ve gotten to that, enjoying the music - or managed to continue enjoyi... 
Your sub experience: Easy or hard?
@mijostyn -- Please let me know what you find out when having gone through the Pre8’s manual. I have no experience with the previous line(s) of DEQX units, nor the Trinnov Amethyst for that matter, but learning of your findings would certainly gi... 
Your sub experience: Easy or hard?
@mijostyn -- Basically it's what I have now (i.e.: fully programmable and nothing between the amp and the driver), but as an all-in-one unit this beautifully realized (or so it certainly seems) it's an item I'd like to acquire for sure.   
Your sub experience: Easy or hard?
My tapped horn subs, two of them, are big at 20 cf. per cab (and each weighing around or +200lbs incl. the driver, built in BB 13-ply), and handling such behemoths certainly isn't easy. Once positioned is their respective corners (a placement cho... 
Is There A Big Difference Between Subwoofers From Different Manufacturers
@lalitk -- I see no sense in arguing with you further, nothing good is going to come out of it. Except.. Remember it was you who engaged me, it was you who felt the need to advocate and pitch the superiority of DIY designs. No, I didn’t en... 
Soundstage and image height, does it exist?
@roxy54 -- With speakers I guess it’s all about the way the drivers disperse the sound. +1 I like that the actual, total radiated field of sound extends somewhat beyond the listening height (with a line source ideally terminated at both the f... 
What's the heaviest speaker you've ever owned? What's the tallest?
@roxy54 -- When I started the thread, I assumed that everyone would name the brand and model of the speakers, not just the height and weight. I think that makes it much more interesting. Duly noted; Electro-Voice TS9040D LX main speakers (acti... 
Is There A Big Difference Between Subwoofers From Different Manufacturers
@lalitk -- May I remind you that this thread is about seeking differences between commercially build subwoofers. If you and @mijostyn wish to further portray the superiority of DIY designs then I suggest you start a new thread. Thank you for you... 
Is There A Big Difference Between Subwoofers From Different Manufacturers
@lalitk --   ... No disrespect to DIY’s community, but every DIY bloke thinks whatever ‘they’ can do, I can do it better. And please define better, what’s better or best to you or your fellow could easily be ‘good enough’ in someone else eyes. ... 
Is There A Big Difference Between Subwoofers From Different Manufacturers
@mijostyn I wish I could find the link but is slow mo’s an 18" woofer under a strobe actually wobbling under light power. One side starts moving before the other and goes downhill from there. The excursions are not very far. I know they would...
