I was going to ask if they were in the picture, then when I looked a second time there they were in (almost) plain view!

Have you tried contacting Danley? They are usually pretty quick to respond. They may have some ideas for trouble shooting. Hope you get things worked out, good luck.

Great idea, I've just sent them a note now. Hopefully they'll have some advice for me!

I don't want to be captain obvious here but are you sure you don't have the drivers wired in phase of one another? They need to be out of phase as one pushes as the other pulls. I mistakenly wired one of mine incorrectly and the output resembled a popcorn fart. I know it can be frustrating but don't give up on it. I have three integrated into my dedicated room and love them.

Damn Brad, Excellent looking room! who knew you could hide not one but 3 DTS10s!!!


I did do the battery test, making sure the drivers both move in and out at the same time, so mechanically in phase and electrically out of phase.


I did some more work on it last nite and made some progress. its very odd, by switching my EP4000 from parallel input to stereo input, the DTS sounded a ton better! I've got a bunch of EQ work to do, and level matching via test tones from my receiver is very odd as it still makes that static tone, but thru a few movie scenes and some music, it was definitely making solid bass!

I think we're the demons.
