No worries.

I can only think of two reasons the thread has been "unstuck":

1) The mods don't like all of the links to other sites...

2) The mods don't want the rest of us mere mortals to feel inferior because you have MULTIPLE sticky threads to your name .

Seriously though, great thread. The amount of work you've put into both this and your "Movies with Bass" thread is astounding! Your dedication has led to many hours of my enjoyment, and I am confident I am not alone in this experience. Thanks for all of your hard work!

No problem. I figured I'd give some props...they're certainly due! And as for keeping your threads visible, that shouldn't be an issue, either. You keep making 'em, I'll keep bumping 'em .

Bump...

Think this will be the first thread with more bumps than actual content.

If you're getting this many bumps with no actual content, maybe a sticky isn't as useful as a thread lock. =\\

Greg

To me, the first couple posts of this thread are gold. Dr. Pain has put together a comprehensive listing of various links concerning subwoofer set up. There are many forum members who have questions about subwoofer setup, which is why several of us have tried to keep this thread in the first page.

A thread lock would send this thread to obscurity, which IMHO would be a shame. However, if this this thread was stickied, then all the bumps and useless posts should be deleted.

That's a bummer. Being a newbie, I found your links very helpful in my a/v setups.

Please Help. I hooked up a onkyo705 with surround with no trouble and a buuddy had a infinity ps-12 to give me so I read your post and hooked up the pre-out to the left or right rca jack and it works just fine on cds, dvds But there is something really wierd. It works with the radio stations too, all but three popular stations, those three are highly static and one static's so much that theres nothing but static and no music at all but if I turn the sub off they instantly become crystal clear or if I turn on the sub and unplug the jack it clears up and when I slowly move towards the sub's jack with the jack from the receiver it starts to satatic before I even plug it in. I don't think it's a loop problem because it only does it on 3 radio stations and nothing else.
Can You Help. Pleeeeeease.

Ok I figured I'll ask and hopefully someone can help,if not then I at least asked I am hoping someone can help me set up my Caliber with REW. I have it I think where it is the best so far but would need to use REW in order to get it where it should be. I know I know I should read the Wizard web site (forum) I did but it's going right over my head I was hoping I could get someone who lives in Arizona with this program to come over and help a friend out and help me optimize my system(or sub).
I have a 3808 with 5 speakers,here is a pic if your curious.

Dr. Pain I have a question for you. When I put my sub in the listening position and then "crawl for bass", should I move all furniture out of the room or will it matter if the couch is still in the room?

Alcohol. The cause of and solution to all of life's problems.

With the exception of your subwoofer, everything else should remain in the same place.
