Hi,

The general consensus is that ported subs have a little different sound/feel than sealed subs, so coming from a ported sub, the SB16 may be a little different at first. But, I would be very...

Hi Bob,

Ray gave you the best answer. But, if you find that you still want a thinner CC even after raising the display by an inch or two, the thinnest ones I know would be something like the...

I'm glad you asked about that. As Selden said, the hockey pucks and the tower mics aren't interchangeable. I checked on your Onkyo pre-pro before answering the first time, though, and according to...

You are welcome! That's a little weird about the surround speakers registering so low away from any room boundaries, while the towers register so high. If you don't get the results you should expect...

Since that model was equipped with XT, you would be looking for an ACM1H microphone. The black and silver versions are interchangeable. Amazon also sells them directly from Onkyo:

I can't speak to the wallet aspect, but from a performance standpoint, I would keep the SB13 and add an SB16. Again, I think that it would be helpful to position the 13 closer to your listening...

Hi,

Manufacturer's do sometimes slightly inflate speaker specs, so it's sometimes difficult to know exactly what to expect. But, I'm guessing that your towers will probably have at least 60Hz...

The biggest thing I see is that the current sub location might not be giving you much boundary gain. Unless you have already done a sub crawl to determine that is the best location, I would try...

I hear you on the tape measure. I have spent a lot of time with one myself. :)

I wasn't sure if you had meant that your sub gain was on "0" or not. But, if it is, that explains the clipping,...

Although I am not into DIY, I know that there are dual 18's that can produce very serious output. But, a lot still depends on the cabinet volume. You might consider something that is taller, such as...

You are very welcome! I was glad to help. Going to 0.0 in your AVR trim level on the sub won't necessarily result in clipping, but staying in negative numbers is what SVS recommends.

I don't know...

Wow, Dan! You really are a bass junkie. Even a 12-step program might not be enough to help. :p

You know, if you seal all of the ports, you won't feel as much air pressure. If you want to feel the...

Hi,

If I understand what you are saying, after Audyssey sets all of your channels to play at the same volume at your MLP (based on a 75db test tone) you manually increase the trim levels on all of...

Hi,

Unless you are trying to listen at Reference volumes (0.0 in master volume) it isn't necessarily a matter of "filling" the space. It's more a matter of achieving the amount of bass, in sound...

Hi Jeffrey,

I am flattered that you are asking me for advice on this issue, but I may turn out to be a dry hole. :rolleyes:

It seems to me that you need to figure out approximately where in the...

Hi David,

You are very welcome! It's a perfectly reasonable question, but I agree with Bear that it would probably take a pretty significant change in subs to make a very significant difference in...

FWIW, I am actually using the lower port tune on the PB16's, with a PB13, and that works too, as described in my previous post. Apparently we were thinking alike and at the same time. :)

That's good information and a helpful explanation of the 7200.




Thanks, I do have good taste in audio! But, in this particular case, I will have to have it in the audio company I keep. :p...
