Many have stated to me that sealed room go sealed sub. You have all ported so how do you like it? Any thoughts of trying sealed subs?

Just curios but do you ever hear any port noise on your 3 PB13?

I will try and grab some room pics when the sub/speakers come. Basically I am in a black pit (black velvet first ~9' on the floor/side walls, rear wall and couch and painted flat black ceiling which will soon get the velvet treatment as well) with a 9' wide 2.35 High Power Screen, so the subs/speakers are out in plain view. I am running JBL S-38s right now all around (S-center) which are about the size of the PSA 110s. The surrounds are mounted on shelves. I have basic sound treatment in the form of bass traps and first reflection panels. If I ever build a HT from scratch, I would do a false wall, AT screen most likely, etc....., but that wouldn't happen unless I get another house at some point which is unlikely.

I don't have any graphs, but I basically use 2 EQ settings on my SMS-1 depending on what I am watching/listening too. I have one setting which I have EQ'd flat (+/- ~2db from 120hz and below) and another setting which leaves my room gain intact which is basically flat to about 50hz then rises up about 8db or so until it hits 40hz and maintains this level until my subs run out of gas below 15hz somewhere (SMS only reads down to 15hz, but I am guessing I am strong to about 12hz in this room). I am much more of a purist with music vs movies, so the flat setting gets used for music and the hot below 50hz setting gets used for movies which I find much more exciting vs a flat response (personal preference).

Knowing what I know now with a small room like mine and if I was starting from scratch, I would lean heavily toward doing an all sealed sub setup. At this point though being strong down to about 12hz and with my Buttkickers taking over from there, I don't care enough about chasing that last bit of extension through my subs to completely overhaul the entire sub system (going through the hassle of selling all my ported subs, buying or building a bunch of sealed subs, etc....) so I am just wanting the most out of my ported subs at this point. Cant imagine I will take it any further once the 3600 arrives though and am looking forward to just settling back for another 6+ years at least and just enjoying.

Having said all that, I love my setup as evidenced from the fact that I have not felt the need to do any audio upgrades in 6 years and have been using the same mains for 12 years at this point (soon to be replaced by PSA 210s though as I mentioned above). Between my subs and kickers during the best movie bass moments in my room, you get the sensation that the couch might lift off the ground which never seems to get old! Music provides a fantastic contrast to this with my flat response where I am much more of a purist. Damn, sorry for the long post!

EDIT: I don't notice any port noise with my PB13s in my setup/room.

Keeping busy...4 pallets out the dock to Fedex.

BTW, we're into our THIRD run of the V3600i now. I'm going to try to double up on the second run of enclosures but I'm not sure what I can bump out right now. We'll see.

Thanks again to everyone for their support!

I'd like to bring down the whole response between 20-120hz, in essence bringing up the <20hz response....think that would work?? I know that I can't effect the response above 100hz a lot, but I've had success before with it effecting up to around 120hz (with a 90hz xover).

Or maybe I shouldn't mess with it at all.



Use the bi-quad advanced filter for eq 1. Peq, low shelf, +8db, 20hz, Q1. This worked well for me because my nearfield subs have no room gain below 30hz, so they roll off just like the 2m rms base response. My 3rd sub gets much better extension and lifts the low end quite a bit.

Response looks great with some excellent extension. Hopefully there is enough headroom there for your listening requirements.

Alan, your before minidsp graph shows your subs ~ -6db from <20hz. Isn't the T18 supposed to be +-3db down to a single digit or at least 10hz? Your highest -3MV sweep with minidsp also shows similar behave from <20hz and the output is only around 105db with minidsp boost. I am expecting more output in this region from your T18 pair. How does it sound with minidsp?

That's pretty cool that you're already on the third run. This V3600 seems to have really taken off.

I'm shocked to see that b-stock S3000i is still available. I guess everyone is jumping on the V3600i instead.

The longer it stays in the outlet, the more tempted I am!

Just do it!

It's a great deal that won't last long so the big question you need to ask yourself is: "Will I regret it it if I let it pass by?"

If you answer "No" then ignore it. If you answer "Yes" then I would jump on it (if you can afford to do so). And since you keep going back to see if it's there I'm thinking you might answer "Yes" to that question.

The T-18 is +/-3db @ 15hz. I agree output seems low... The more I think about it either the mic is not calibrated correctly(which I doubt because Alan is experienced with REW)or there is some cancellation going on in the lower frequencies. Alans room is big but I would still expect 110-112db down into the single digits from those subs.

I would expect more output too...I blame the MiniDSP.

It's been awhile since I've done compression sweeps and couldn't remember the best method...so, I did the above compression sweeps using the LFE CH output in REW but with the sweep level reduced 10db (to compensate for the LFE boost), so I would only need to see peaks of 105db to be at "reference" (correct?).

As you say, of course the mic was calibrated correctly.

Not sure how I could be getting cancellations...I have XT32 with SubEQ HT and I have checked the time-alignment with REW and XT32 seems to get it spot on every time I've checked (twice). Next time I get the gear out, I'll mess with the sub distances again just to make certain.

Could just be the odd shape of my room and the huge space I've got to fill (+5000 cu. ft.), I don't know.



Anyways, did some listening last night after boosting the low end with the MiniDSP and was fairly impressed...but also a little bit confused. Overall, it sounded great! I'm getting more low-end for sure and the mid-bass even seems tighter. I went up to -10MV with WOW "Pod Emerges" and FotP "Plane Crash" and didn't hear any sign of strain. Couldn't really go any louder since the wife was in bed.

Before last night I had been running LFE+Main for quite some time....if I didn't use LFE+Main, music sounded "thin" (very reduced bass). After using the MiniDSP last night though, I was able to turn off LFE+Main and bass with music was very plentiful...almost too much even.

The MiniDSP didn't really effect the music bass region (+30hz) according to REW, so why in the heck would I experience what I did?? There's gotta be other things going on with my system. Sometimes I make a change and it changes things I didn't expect (for better or worse) and I just can't explain it...and that is very frustrating to me.

My above statement is illustrated below with these spectrograms. Obviously with "No MiniDSP" there is more energy going into the mid-bass region. I just don't understand.

Reference for subs is 115db no matter what the volume is set at...even if you took the sweep at -10, the output should show 115db if you are running 8-10db hot.

You are not even coming close to the 2m rms numbers of a single T-18 if your gear is calibrated right. Even in your large room you should hit at least the GP numbers.

Tom shows 109db 2m rms for the 16-25hz region. You sould be getting 113-115db in the 16-25hz range with duals.

That tells me something is amiss somewhere. Did you verify that the mic is reading the same output levels as your spl meter?

Glad to hear it is sounding good! Curious to hear what it sounds like @ -5 as well. Use your spl meter while playing some wotw and report back the spl levels you are seeing.

Bass,

Sorry to ask here, but since you guys are on the topic I figured why not. So based off what you said and this sweep of my normal listening levels I could boost my FV's more than 6db's?

I have a UMM-6 so I have to calibrate the SPL every time I run REW...so, yes.

We would need to see some compression sweeps to answer that question.

Can't tell when the subs are compressing with just one measurement.

According to that graph, you have pretty severe compression at -10MV....check the distortion graphs for those sweeps.

Found it!!

Here's the compression sweeps (dual T-18s) without the MiniDSP:




And with MiniDSP:





Since I measured the "No MiniDSP" sweeps 10db lower, this seems to be reflected in the graphs....not sure what this means though. Like bh said, I should still be getting the same output, would just have to turn it up more.

Unless I'm clipping somewhere?? Come to think of it, I didn't check the inputs on the MiniDSP to see if there was clipping last night...that's correct, right? I need to check the MiniDSP INPUTS and make sure they aren't bouncing into the red??

OK, just Googled "MiniDSP input level" and came across a lot of interesting reading (a lot of which I'd read before, but since forgotten ). A lot of it goes over my head, but then I found (again) AustinJerry's awesome MiniDSP guide and it explains exactly how to make sure you aren't clipping.

Gonna do that tonight.

Brian, Alan, Basshead or anyone else who wishes to jump in. Bottom line…just how difficult is it to set up and get the minidsp running?

No worries! After chatting with Tom, I felt confident that dual XS30se's would meet my needs and save me a lot of money. Then just as I was about to end our chat, an XS30se was delivered to them! How's that for perfect timing! So I ordered it! Should get it Friday. Talk about Happy Birthday to ME!

Anyway, total cost for DUAL XS30se's - $1999!!!!

See my link to AustinJerry's awesome guide a couple posts up. I wish I would have had that guide when I got my MiniDSP a couple years ago.

It's the clipping that's getting me I think. Just have to measure my pre-out voltage and I should be good to go.

Depends on what your compression sweeps look like.

JT, looking at your compression sweeps and distortion, you will be safe with 6db boost listening at your norm -15MV.
