What was eating that Hsu VTF subwoofer, and why haven't you just got the thing fixed?


Ouch....that's nasty looking!

System includes KEF R500 floor standing, R200C center, R100 surrounds, SVS SB1000 subwoofer, NAD T758 receiver, Bluesound Vault, Sony BDP-S480 BlueRay player, Samsung UN55JU6500F 4K LED TV, KEF M500 headphones, Sony CDP-CE500 CD changer, MCS System cassette deck, AudioTechnica LP260 turntable. The last 3 items are dust collectors but will work if asked.

Fixed? Im assuming you are talking about the ED a7s-450?? 18 inch sub. Its great, but since ED is out of business, I just added the HSU. I love the ED, and I would have bought another if they were still in business.

Sorry but the photo of the Hsu seems to have some shadow or something across the driver and it looked like a hole in it to me.


I must be seeing things.

What threw me on that is that the shape and size looks identical in two separate photos, so perhaps it's the same photo cropped two different ways. Being a photographer I notice little things like that.

Just to stick the front of center a little bit pass the front of the cabinet, even1/2" should do, since the height of you center look pretty good compare to your mains.

Just married and fresh out of college so Im broke as can be but for the time being my system gets the job done.
Kenwood JL601s for the front
Sony CN305 for the center (Really want to upgrade this soon its way too weak)
Kenwood JL680's for the rear (on concreat blocks to height match the fronts, told you I was broke)
Sony SA W2500 subwoofer

All really cheap stuff but I gets the job done for the time being. The subs probably the best part, of course it was the most expensive at $100. lol

I'm fortunate too, mine gave me complete control over my room when it came to the AV part.

Although....I did have to give her say so for the rest of the house it's attached to....

Still a good trade....

Thanks Ray,

That is for my grandfather who passed 12 years ago (a WWII vet who fought the Germans in France).

Here's what I've got right now. I'm selling a house and plan on upgrading very soon.

PS4 --> Schiit Bifrost Uber --> Schiit SYS --> Emotiva XPA-5 (using 4 of 5 channels, bi-amping speakers) --> Magnepan Tympani 1D speakers. There's also a terrible, old sub from a Martin Logan HTIB. I plan on replacing him with two HSU ULS-15 subwoofers with my tax return.

Once the house closes I plan on buying an Emotiva XMC-1 to replace the Bifrost and run my home theater. I then plan on getting the new Aperion Verus II Grand speakers, two towers, the grand center, and two bookshelf speakers as surrounds. If the budget holds, the 60" Sharp LED TV will be replaced with a new 4K Vizio 70" LED TV.

It sounds pretty incredible for the little I have invested so far. The speakers were given to me by my Dad. He purchased them in 1972 and they sat in an attic for about 25 years until he gave them to me last year. I initially drove them with his old McIntosh C26 preamp and MC2105 power amp, but the preamp needs a ton of work and the amp clipped with almost any deep bass present. It sounded lush and warm, but there were very little dynamics.

I upgraded to the XPA-5 and tried it with two channels at first. Much more clear than the old Mac, and a bigger soundstage, but dynamics still were missing. I then wired in two more channels and wow, what a difference. Enormous power peaks and a soundstage that is baffling to say the least. Everything is huge with this guys (obviously). I haven't felt much of a need for a center channel, except that deep voices could be more realistic and panning around a room would sound more natural. They're still very natural and clear otherwise.

Deep bass still isn't quite there, which makes me really want to get good stands for them and re-wire and glue them, since they're so old and original. Can't wait until the twin subwoofers can be ordered, it'll be a lot of fun until the Aperion speakers are stocked and shipped.

The basement, however, gets the better stuff <evil grin>.

We have a (better) 55" Insignia LED LCD TV (pretty much Samsung under a different name), an HD cable box, a Western Digital Live TV media streamer (with 2TB HDD),a Samsung BD-P1600, and a Pioneer Elite SC-61 to drive the following speakers:
Post Audio DM-16 fronts (more on these below);
PSB Alpha One Front Heights;
Goldenear ForceField 3 1kW Subwoofer;
Sinclair Audio Sculptura Ci Centre (Need Advice!!!); and
Bose 201 Mk V Rear Surrounds (Real. Bose. Direct/Reflecting. Speakers).

The Post Audio DM-16s are monsters. They have 2 honkin' 12" woofers, a 5" mid-range, and a 1" tweeter. The info sticker tells me the following:
Operative power range: 10-300 Watts
Recommended Amp power: 10-170 Watts RMS
Frequency response: 28Hz - 20kHz
Crossover: 2kHz and 5kHz
Efficiency: 100dB
8 Ohms

What I would REALLY appreciate is some advice on a centre-channel speaker that would do justice to both the SC-61 and DM-16s, since a) the AVR is such a great piece of technology (especially for the deal I got), and b) I need a centre-channel that would provide the power, wide sound-stage, and, most of all, the CLARITY that is lacking in the Sculptura.

...
So, after almost 10 months of Real Life happening, I found a deal on kijiji that I was hard-pressed to pass up. A local swap-shop advertised two Paradigm centers: a CC-690 and a CC-190. The 690, unfortunately, was already sold when I called them, but I thought I'd talk to them about the 190. I took some older electronics (an old Samsung HTiB and a computer I built a few years ago and replaced) and managed to walk out of the store with a Paradigm Monitor Series CC-190 v5 for $40 CAD.

As the speaker hadn't even been out of the box yet, I'm breaking it in by playing one of the cable radio stations constantly for a few days. Of course, I just HAD to give it a listen first, and was VERY impressed with the difference in clarity and sound. The next thing to do is find a way to position it.

My previous speaker was mounted on a stand above the TV and angled down to the MLP. The trouble is, the 190 is about three times as deep as the Sinclair, and I cannot angle it down due to the depth of the stand. Tight now, it's sitting on top of my AVR (without covering the grill), and it looks kinda odd. As well, I cannot bring it closer to the plane of my mains. I guess my next question is "would the AVR be able to correct the direction of the 190 if it was mounted level above the TV?" Another thing to note - the console the components are on isn't wide enough to place everything side-by-side - even if I stack the components (bad for air flow too).

Once I finally have everything sorted out, I'll post some pictures.

I have a Samsung 65 inch js8500, a Denon avr1910, Goldenear Triton 2's with the xl center channel, and a Seaton submersive hp+ behind the couch. Pardon the curtains being missing and the walls being plane I just got finished painting. Hopefully I will be getting the 2nd submersive before summer.

Here we go!

So, I think I finally got my HT setup in my basement. I put this together over a few years and a (very) tight budget. You would be amazed what you can find on kijiji if you're patient enough, especially now that the Canadian dollar has tanked...

TV: Insignia 55" 1080p LED LCD TV. On sale for just under a grand at Best Buy over 4 years ago. From what I understand, it might as well be a Samsung with a different name.

AVR: Pioneer Elite SC-61. I got an amazing store opening special for about half-price.

Optical disk player: Samsung BD-P1600. I feel no need to upgrade at this time (ie: it works fine).

Tuner: Rogers Nextbox (Cisco) HD receiver.

Streaming: Roku 3 (got it yesterday and it's a HUGE upgrade over my previous WD Live TV).

Fronts:
Post Audio DM 16's. From what I understand, they are the higher-end speakers from Audiosphere Research. These things are enormous, 2x 12" woofers, 5" mid-range, and 1" tweeter. $75 from kijiji.

Center:
Paradigm Monitor Series CC-190 v5. I got this earlier this week to replace the anemic Sinclair Audio Sculptura C1 I lives with for the past 3 years. Believe it or not, $40 from a swap shop after I traded in an old Samsung HTIB and an old desktop computer.

Surrounds: Bose 201 v5's. Ya, I know - Bose sucks. However, when I got them for about 50% off to act as my front speakers for my old HTIB, they sounded miles better than the crappy speakers I had. They actually work pretty well as surrounds.

Front Height:
PSB Alpha A1's. $100 on a Boxing Day special. Amazing sound from such small bookshelf speakers.

Sub: GoldenEar ForceField 1, set at 80Hz through the AVR. For an 8" sub, there's a 1,000W amp and, combined with the huge woofers in my mains, I get a LOT of room-shaking sound.

My basement room is 12"x27"x8" with a corner fireplace (ugh) that pretty much dictates the placement of the TV, taking into consideration the seating options we have. The MLP is about 8' from the speakers. We have laminate flooring over concrete, so it can get pretty reflective down here. I'm going to put down a rug to help with that, and to help keep our feet warm.

Now, as I promised darthray, I finally have some pictures! Please, if anyone has suggestions for placement, etc - please let me know! I'm a relative noobie when it comes to this stuff. Enjoy!

Another post lost due to the avs server losing what I wrote


So here go again!

Thank for posting the pics


Lots of oldie speakers and it is fine, if they work for you, then it is all good in my book.
Look like you have already tow in your main, and this is good.


From your picture. The only suggestion I got, would be to move the center about an inch forward to stick out away from the cabinet.

Thanks Ray. I will bring the center out as far as I can, within WAF guidelines

What I really like is the accuracy, clarity, and sensitivity of the front stage, including the front-heights. It really makes for enjoyable listening at lower volumes. My father-in-law is rather hard of hearing, and he appreciated the fact that he didn't have to turn the volume to 11 in order to hear everything!

It does not to be much


1/2" to 3/4" should make enough of a difference for you to notice, since it would remove any refection from the cabinet.
