7030's subwoofer RCA output > rca cable (mono) > antimode > rca to xlr cable > behringer

I wonder if any rca to xlr cable can be used.

Quick (probably stupid) question:

I just bought a used Anti-Mode 8033, the one with 1 input, and 1 output.

I have 2 SVS PC12-NSD i will connect these with an Y cable, these subs have a phase knob, should i keep one on 0, and the other on 180 before calibrating, or should both be on 0?

Many years had passed... nothing new from DSPeaker. Sigh. Even marketing the €3,400 Antimode X4 is a pain for them.

according to the company, they recommend to keep both subs on the same phase b4 calibration.

I am considering an Anti-mode 8033S-II. The manual warns about not having your AVR signal lower than -3 (* see excerpt from manual below.) I have my AVR calibrated so the subwoofer signal is -7 (and have had it calibrated even lower) so I can add up to around 6 dB which I sometimes do during movies etc.

Will have it set so low really cause problems? Does the AVR subwoofer signal need to be -3 or higher to work with the Anti-mode unit?





* From manual: The input level warning is useful in optimizing the signal level that goes into the Anti-Mode. If the
volume of your subwoofer is too high, the AVR's calibration may set unnecessarily low levels for
the subwoofer output. This leaves much of the Anti-Mode's available input range unused and can
cause an audible low level hum or noise from the subwoofer. This may be the case if your AVR
indicates its subwoofer output level is below -3dB.

To take advantage of the full input range of the Anti-Mode, decrease the subwoofer volume and
increase the output level from the pre-amplifier or AVR until you see only occasional 3dB warnings,
then lower the volume a few dB.

I have the Anti-Mode 8033S-II, and my levels are at -8 dB. I have no problems with hum or noise.

i feel my subs where set way too low... so honestly i am just running them hot again... If I use the boost function i feel less bass but using the normal function i have a good punch still

My AVR's subwoofer channel volume is -9db after Audyssey calibration. So far no issues with my Antimode SII. Works fine.

I have a newbie type stupid question. I use an older 8033 in a 2.1 system ( i think its the original version) by connecting the mono center channel output on my vintage integrated. I then use a mono rca from the antimode to one side of the sub amp.

Will i have any improvement in sound and or db if i use a stereo out from the antimode to the left and right rca in on the sub amp? Or is is this mono the whole way through....


thanks

New to the thread and Antimode. I just installed an Anitmode 8033 Cinema for my corner loaded PSA XV15 and am totally blown away by the results. My Audyssey XT equipped AVR went up in smoke (literally) and I replaced it with a Sony 1060 which sounds better in the main channels in every way possible when compared to Audyssey XT, but Sony's room EQ didn't do much for the sub.

I always thought XT did a good job with my sub, but my ears, and pant legs, tell me that the AM does a much better job. I'm running the flat EQ curve and could not be happier.

When I first did the 8033's calibration and then checked the results with Sony's DCAC (auto EQ) it had the sub at -5db, so I lowered the gain on the sub and re-ran the DCAC, and repeated a couple of times until I got 0db trim. The manual seemed to be pretty serious about the AVR's trim level not being below 0ish.

Then I went ahead and re-ran the 8033's calibration because I wasn't sure if lowering the sub's own gain control would somehow mess up the calibration - OK, my OCD kicked in - and all was good. My trim is now 0db and the distance went up by 4'1" according to DCAC.

I just watched Gravity again and I can't believe how much 20hzish stuff I was missing....... The bloat is gone, and I would swear that someone installed a kicker in my chair! Unbelievable result.

that's great. Antimode has been one of the best buys VFM. Esp if u dont have XT32 and subEQ in your AVR.

Totally agree. I forgot to mention, that the "layers" of bass are amazing. I guess I got used to the boom frequency dominating my room, even with XT supposedly fixing it. I actually raised my x-overs to let the sub handle the workload.

2 channel music is sooooo good now.

Just ordered the 8033S-II... Quick question/opinion.

Dual subs. Y-splitter or run 1 cable from each output with one sub phase set at 180. Ive got the cables, a Y-splitter from another install...

Would one option be better than another?

Thanks

George
