Disclaimer: I have never heard DWMs on Mye's stands.

I'd be inclined to doubt the stands would help much if any. My experience with numerous stands over the years is that a very good design can...

Amplifiers may have different gain structure than other amps so I would run at least level calibration when changing amplifiers to ensure main and sub levels are accurate. The amp may or may not...

This is way off-topic, but I am not sure what you mean by this. If you look at the eyes in a SAS/SATA/PCIe/etc. channel then crosstalk, noise, EMI, RFI, etc. coupled to the channel (traces, coax,...

No worries. Depends on the transformer construction and so forth. Picture a linear coil, say wrapped around a pencil, and short half of it. That is what I had in mind and have seen happen. I saw a...

If you have to ask you may not have the expertise to dial in a DIY filter.

It looks like a standard film capacitor but there are many types of films. Most any should be OK for this. Do not use an...

The fact that it only appears in the rears could point to an amplifier problem. I have seen plenty of amps that have RFI issues from the speaker leads though agree it is not common. The problem is...

Revisit transformer theory. Shorted windings can happen on the primary or the secondary. But yah a fuse might blow depending on how many turns are shorted. IME shorted turns in these relatively...

If you are using an AVR's sub output it is managing the bass.

Happens more than people think. Cheap (or "lesser") subs typically get cranked higher and exhibit very high distortion. So a 60 Hz signal distorted means significant 120 Hz content from the sub, up...

If you are using the AVR to manage the bass, crossover and such then use the LFE inputs.

The reason for a tech, or at least a service manual, is that something else (like shorted rectifier(s) or even shorted transformer windings that raised the voltage) may have caused the caps to...

A flat target curve does not mean there are not large gains being applied and that is what limits Dirac Live's dynamic range.

The idea is to build up by starting with an F12, then add another one or a couple or four, then you'll be ready for F15 moving on up to F25 and the big 18" models.

At some point you'll wuss out...

Look up Fletcher-Munson loudness curves and extrapolate. They have to be pretty loud though you can "feel" them at lower levels. It's up to you; I had no plans to dip much below 20 Hz if that, it...

Depends on the music or movie and if you care for really deep bass, but considering the sub-forum we are in, the answer must be "yes" :)

Agree with the general sentiment to not skimp; you'll pay for it later. A good sub will last many, many years while a bad one becomes annoying very quickly. Actually, you can replace "sub" with any...
