Simply moving it should not have caused an issue, but it may have in this case. My guess is that sub is probably a decade old, and it seems it won't see its 11th birthday. There may be few viable...

A good price doesn't always equate to a good deal. If your only criteria is cost then the PS38 might suffice, but if things like performance and capabilities are factored in it will fall well short...

Yea, the list is a bit stale. Updating it is a PITA though, which is why I keep procrastinating. It was never actually intended to become so encompassing, and that first post is suffering because of...

If you're hearing a high pitched squeal there won't be a blown fuse; the only way to make that sound is if power was getting to the amp, which a blown fuse would prevent completely. It could be the...

I would imagine the difference between those two is negligible, with perhaps a slight advantage going to the DSP3100. If you provide a budget and intended usage perhaps someone can suggest...

-12dB is Audyseey's way of saying the gain (volume) on the subwoofer is too high and it can't get an accurate reading. Give the dial a sizable turn counter clockwise and run it again. Keep doing...

If I were a betting man I would say the amp is foreshadowing its imminent demise. It might be giving you fair warning.

You might want to keep an eye on that. Even if you did overdrive/overheat the sub I would think the thermal circuit should have shut it down before the fuse popped. That's uncommon, at least in my...

That's quite possibly the most transparent grill material I've ever seen. It's practically invisible.

I don't think he meant that small. Going from a Castle to the Baby Boomer is like going from a Mastiff to a Chihuahua. Probably just a bit too radical. I know all about the BB too, because I used...

Assuming your room is complete closed off the total volume of space is just shy of 2000 ft^3, which is not terribly large. To do what you want probably won't require monster subs.

+1

That's a good option. I have one of them for review at this very moment, and other than being a little deep it's not all that large for a sub that can do what this one can.
