You won't get a sub you would want to listen to for $200. If you are in an apartment or attached house, you don't want one anyway as bass goes right through the walls. I would recommend spending as...

I was very fond of the Mission sorbathane mat with an AT clamp on my modified Thorens, Grace cartridge. Subjectively, it seemed cleaner. This is attributed to damping micro-phonics, but I had no...

Most "bookshelf" speakers are not intended to be wall mounted. The crossover Baffle Step Compensation assumes they will be out in the room, a couple of feet away from anything. A few are made for...

Sorry to inform you of this, but "small" and "subs" are mutually exclusive. Basic physics. DIy offers many possibilities to stuff subs in places that don't take up living space. Under sofa, under...

No, it is a matter of preference. You are only stupid if you waste your money on speaker cables, fancy plugs, power cords or interconnects.

Anything about 2 inches long with two holes in them. Two D-ring hangers and a couple of bull-dogs is even overkill.

Come on folks, this is easy. Are we living in a world where no one can...

Imaging is 90% environment, control of short distance reflections. Not the speaker. Surprise!
Both speakers are respected. I happen to like the PM1's, but I like my own even better. B&W does very...

Yes, put the grills on.

The may sound better as dust caps have very nasty break-up modes. An off center dent can help to break them up giving a smoother sound.

Now, I have used 3M structural...

Go to the hardware store and get screw eyes, d-ring hangers, mirror hangers etc. You don't need "speaker" hangers.

A can of black spray paint. Or pick a brown slightly lighter than the wall, and with the holes, it will blend in even better.

As was said, just looking at just the size of a sub is meaningless. I use a 10 " RS series in my office as a music only sub. It is never asked to produce dinosaur footfalls or explosions, just take...

I am most fond of Parasound amps. I hear good things on Outlaw. Many like the Emo. Can't beat the try and return policy on Emo and Outlaw.

Yea, but at least we had Unisyn's and could measure. There was a "right" answer. I guess using a rubber tube method was a lot like the critical listening for speaker set-up.

Second, you don't have a 725W receiver. ...
