So how about those rythmik products! Enough of this childish banter. Doesn't belong in this thread.

KEF Hydro Blaster is an amazing technological advance that increases the quality of wireless streaming audio such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Doubt you could get a set for $2000. Maybe 2.

I honestly do not recall him saying that...sounds out of character.

Yes I am holding out to see what the FV25 or FV18 is all about.

So I think we all can agree that this is bunk but IF removing moisture from the air was really THAT important, wouldn't it make MUCH MORE SENSE to simply put a dehumidifier in your home? Even IF this snake oil DID remove some moisture from a room, other moisture from an adjacent room (like a commerical studio where the ad was shot) would simply fill in the less moisture spaces. COMPLETE BUNK

Just making sure you and everyone else know, that was an April Fools Day joke from KEF. Not a real product.

Everything is bigger in Texas, even the corporations. So if you are dealing with small volume niche products, no one will even talk to you. This is absolutely closer to reality than a joke. The first US driver company (NCA) I worked with told me to find another supplier after a year. My second US driver company is TC Sounds. Thilo is a nice guy. But in reality, he won't even make drivers for me if it were not because he is in a financial difficulty. The third US company I talked to want to see my bank statement before we can even talk business. The forth one has a different strategy. They have a very reasonable priced off-the-shelf driver that they want to sell. But if you want to make a special driver, not only they will charge you big bucks for tooling, they also want you to commit annual quantity. I understand that they have a company to run and those policies come from the top, not those I talked to. But if I use the same off-the-shelf drivers, what are my differentiating factors? So if I need to stick to made in USA, I need to find a deep pocket investor or a few of them. Then I need to listen to them and do what they think will sell. It is not a pretty picture. Is the fiasco of RA related to not having deep pocket?


My customers know my passion on subwoofers (and audio in general). I also have a Ph.D in EE. But I found my passion in audio even before I went to engineering school. This is very important. It is similar to asking your doctor "do you study medicine because you want to save lives or because it makes money"? Now given my passion on subwoofers, I am not going to let the reality stop me from making products. I need to find suppliers willing to work with me. We either have products or not have products.

@Rythmik
You make some great points. However, I would be surprised if JTR and Seaton sell more subwoofers than Rythmik (correct me if I am wrong). Other companies are having success having custom drivers built in the U.S. A minimum quantity of 50 doesn't seem excessive (Eminence).

http://www.eminence.com/custom-oem/
Quote:
To qualify as an OEM, we require a minimum order of 50 pieces per spec as well as a copy of your resale tax certificate or business license. The Eminence production capacity is approximately 10,000 transducers per day. With production numbers like this, coupled with over 40 years of experience, it’s no wonder virtually every manufacturer in the world builds equipment powered by Eminence drivers!
What would it take for you to source more components (drivers, cabinets, etc.) domestically, and bring your manufacturing/assembly to the U.S? Fewer SKUs (do you really need the 8" driver assemblies?)? How did SVS do it years ago[before going corporate]? How is PSA doing it today while seemingly offering more value per dollar (debateable)?

Then we get all components made in China ship to the USA and final assembling and testing of the product is done in our warehouse in Austin, TX. So in other words, Rythmik Audio subwoofers are manufactured by Rythmik Audio.
A pair of Rythmik E15s were at the top of my wish list last year. When I learned that PSA had just moved to SpeakerPower amps and were assembling in the US I started doing more research on the companies I was considering. Rythmik exporting their full assemblies from China was the sole reason I didn't purchase. Doesn't Ascend assemble in the U.S.?

I am willing to pay more for your impressive servo technology and I know others are too. If it was all about money I would have bought my sealed 15s from HSU locally instead of PSA.

BTW I love the technical information available on your website, but it could use an overhaul. It does not view well on mobile devices, even with a browser that supports flash. It's much easier to view your products via Ascend's site.

Man, has it gotten hot in here since yesterday or what? Maybe I can cool it back down with my never-ending subwoofer questions.

I've been reading more and more about the technology (general amp to driver interaction, servo, amplification, etc). A good amount specifically on the H600PEQ3. Some questions about the FV15HP and H600PEQ3.

  1. On the H600PEQ3 PEQ settings, am I to understand that should my FR be that I only need one PEQ filter, I wouldn't really need the 2x4 HD as long as I can hone in the settings on the H600PEQ3 to flatten the one peak/dip?

  2. When we say "If you use 1 port", am I correct in my understanding that this simply means I have plugged one of the two ports, and set the rumble filter to off? (or on if unplugged).

  3. Does it matter which of the two ports is plugged if that's right?

  4. In H600PEQ3's PEQ area - just want to make sure bandwidth = Q right? How wide of a frequency range the PEQ is applied?

  5. Given that I plan to likely switch the damping around between High, Med, Low depending on time of day, if baby is home, etc, does it make sense for me to just do REW with the setting on what I would call ideal performance (probably low) and just realize if I switch it to Med/High the FR and other factors will change, but if I change it back to Low it'll be back to the FR I measured for?

  6. Also, along the lines of 4, if I setup PEQ with the 2x4 HD, and change the damping between High, Med, Low, could the FR completely get whacked out and potentially cause big dips/peeks in unwanted places? If so, would a solution be to setup multiple configs on the 2x4 HD for each of the High, Med, Low, settings and switch it when I switch it on the sub?


I think that's all for now but remember, I haven't even gotten the sub yet so I will have more questions.

Who says Rythmik export full assembly from China? For E15 alone, we offer silver/black cone and 3 amplifier options. That is a total of 6 SKU. Then we have FV15HP, F15HP, F12 all have 6 SKUs. If we have them all assembled from China, my warehouse needs to be huge, does it? We have many different products assembled here at Austin. Even myself assemble subwoofers when my staff is on vacation. Of course, as we grow, we will need to make it efficient.


I don't even want to ask Tom to stop saying we assembled subs in China on his website. How many years he has been doing that? He has not been in our office/warehouse. Too many customers takes his words as facts. We do have a couple of entry level models that will be assembled overseas. But none of those models are on his web sites as his competitors. So practically his information on the website is wrong. But that is ok. I know how Tom is. He works hard. I don't mind losing a few customers to him. But the bigger loss is the customer if they still don't get it. It is the ideas/products/methods that the company is selling is important. Customers can talk to me. Again that is part of what we are selling. If customers like the idea of servo subwoofers, then they will be open-minded enough see through all the business practices and understand why we are doing all of these.


I talked Eminence before. It is the company wants to sell me their standard drivers. I talked to them twice 5 years apart because a customer told me I should check with them again. You do know all driver prices are tiered. That is the CYA from manufacturers. They don't lose money. You don't want to pay for 50pcs price unless you are selling $5,000 subs. And there are other details which I don't want to get into.

I do not think his website says assembled in China, it says "country of origin"...which is the truth if the enclosure, driver, and amplifiers are sourced from overseas no?

I've been reading more and more about the technology (general amp to driver interaction, servo, amplification, etc). A good amount specifically on the H600PEQ3. Some questions about the FV15HP and H600PEQ3.

  1. On the H600PEQ3 PEQ settings, am I to understand that should my FR be that I only need one PEQ filter, I wouldn't really need the 2x4 HD as long as I can hone in the settings on the H600PEQ3 to flatten the one peak/dip?


    When we say "If you use 1 port", am I correct in my understanding that this simply means I have plugged one of the two ports, and set the rumble filter to off? (or on if unplugged).


    Does it matter which of the two ports is plugged if that's right?


    In H600PEQ3's PEQ area - just want to make sure bandwidth = Q right? How wide of a frequency range the PEQ is applied?


    Given that I plan to likely switch the damping around between High, Med, Low depending on time of day, if baby is home, etc, does it make sense for me to just do REW with the setting on what I would call ideal performance (probably low) and just realize if I switch it to Med/High the FR and other factors will change, but if I change it back to Low it'll be back to the FR I measured for?


    Also, along the lines of 4, if I setup PEQ with the 2x4 HD, and change the damping between High, Med, Low, could the FR completely get whacked out and potentially cause big dips/peeks in unwanted places? If so, would a solution be to setup multiple configs on the 2x4 HD for each of the High, Med, Low, settings and switch it when I switch it on the sub?


I think that's all for now but remember, I haven't even gotten the sub yet so I will have more questions.
The PEQ controls are for one band of parametric eq (like one filter in REW). Not sure what Q values are possible with the bandwidth knob.

Low damping, 14Hz extension, 1 port plugged and rumble filter off are the settings to use during any sort of room correction and also a good idea with the MiniDSP PEQ. Afterwards, you can change these to preference and it won't mess up any calibration done.

It shouldn't matter which port is plugged in 1 port mode. And your understanding of how to change port modes is correct.

What are you talking about? The term "country of origin" is vague. Look how Marc interpreted that. What if all the components of the drivers (magnets, basket, cones) are all from China and they are put together here at Eminence? What is the country of origin for the driver? Is that made in USA, or assembled in USA, or half assembled in USA, or half made in USA? If that is questionable, how about the systems assembled from those drivers? Do you want to continue to amplifiers, power cords?
