Speaker #6 & #7 are done!



This is not their final resting position, just taken for quick photo.


The LCR's aren't totally finished yet, I have to revisit them. So that's up next...

I tried How To Train Your Dragon for the first time today.

The movie goes to 0.9 and 1.6hz?

The 6.5hz... my system can just barely reach that one because of my amplifiers.

First attempt got 104db @ 24hz max-peak.

and according to my UMC Mic-1 peak was 22hz:



Then I turned the LFE up another 3db.
Second attempt got 111db @ 28hz:

Didn't create a waterfall of that one.

Here is the raw LFE channel:



Got it crossed over at 80hz at the moment because I'm in the middle of experimenting with new sub positionings.

When I get my tax return (assuming I don't owe anything), I was thinking of buying the last bit of DSP and XLR cables I need to get one step closer to completing my speaker-goal:


My speaker-goal was to have enough DSP for 3-way active LCR's,
which takes up 9 of the 18 channels of the DCX's,
the other 9 channels are for tri-channel subwoofers.

3 boxes with 9 inputs, of which I'll be using 8. So I need 1 XLR Y cable for the LFE, and another for the stereo signals.

I feel ya, man. It's a ton of wiring and a lot of amplifier channels. Makes my head hurt (seriously) when I have to hook them up or make a change.

This will be your third DCX, right?

If so .... welcome to the club. The Three DCX Owners Club.

My Dual 18" LLT subs 120dB down to 10hz

Yep 3rd.


So that's 30 XLR cables and 2 XLR Y splitters, and 6 RCA cables.

If I want to stereo sum the center, then I'll need a 3rd Y splitter for the Left matrix.


If and when I upgrade to an XMC-1 or RMC-1, I'll be able to get rid of the cleanboxes and RCA cables altogether, which will make things a bit simpler and more compact and changeable via remote control.
I'm not 100% sure if a XMC-1 is good enough to replace a 105 DAC and XSP-1 for music. I could always keep all 3 if not, the wiring is easy.
