The subs if calibrated flat will has never reached over 120 dBs with the loudest and baddest movies on the 5 star list. These peaks are low bass and not within the range that is commonly damaged.

I remember coming out of I think it was Space in Ibiza a few years ago - the only time I've been, and probably a good thing for my hearing!

It was insanely loud on the dancefloor, almost painful on sections of music that were all treble and no bass, but when the full range was playing you could still have a conversation with the person next to you without really yelling, the sound was crystal clear and not distorted so your speaking voice didn't seem overwhelmed. I've always thought that was the mark of a good setup, in that it was loud but didn't smother other sounds??

Either way, when I came out of there at about 3am I was so temporarily deaf that it was like I was wearing ear defenders eek.gif


Fun at the time? Sure biggrin.gif but I would be 'a wuss' and take earplugs next time, as I would to a concert of any kind. You can still feel the bass in your chest, it just means it's not so damaging to your ears! smile.gif

My friend described my setup just like that... "Man, you can have it pretty loud, but I don't have to yell to talk to you.. that's what 'I' want !"

Here is a pic with my JBL Venue Sub10 in it. I picked it up a few weeks ago for $40. Another craigslist find. That puts my entire 2.1 speaker setup up to a grand total of $120. cool.gif

Does that include the foam TV wrap? wink.gif

$120 is cheap - nice finds. They match too, which is a bonus.

Haha, Still running a tube TV...i know, i know....and all tube tvs make a high pitched ringing sound like a dog whistle that drives me nuts. Gotta have the foam wrap...even if it makes me look psycho.

Hey, I still have and use a 36" Sony CRT tv in my bedroom. Still a nice pic with directv......and the heaviest damned tv I've ever owned or had to pick up/move. 180 lbs. There is no "one manning" this one.

You definitely know how to do HT on a budget :-)

Hands down the sound on the terrace is the best in the world. The other rooms were great but the terrace is on a whole other level.

Body implosion? Spontaneous bowel movement is probably more like it... eek.gif

Just unboxed my 15h today. After a hour or so of playing around, I am certainly happy with my purchase, cannot wait to play with it more and get it tuned best for the room.

BrolicBeast I would put some Gramma pads under those monster subs sitting on a bare floor like that. Would tighten up the bass quite a bit. Nice setup btw.

Hey all,

Thought I'd just add my newest addition to my home theater. I replaced my Klipsch RW-12D with this "perfect condition" Definitive Technology Powerfield 1800! This thing is one heavy beast!

Thanks,
Jason

I thought about this a few times, but the measurements of the subs are so flat, I figured I'd just leave them as-is. I may still put them there though.

Twin JL F112's. They do not dig as deep as the larger subs but in my medium sized room, after finding optimal placement, I get flat response to 18hz.

I love those subs for music. A friend of mine has one of them and it is the perfect music sub IMO...also one of the best looking subs there is, also IMO.

He is looking to add some low reaching umph, so we are looking at possible building some sealed subs using the Dayton 18HO that others are building with here.

Thanks for sharing!

Really, the posts went from 12/13/12 to 1/6/13. Did this thread really go 1 year without any new posts or did somehow a bunch get deleted???

That's not even one month, let alone one year.

Jim, you are correct! I think the change to the New Year threw me for a loop. I better inspect my checks to make sure I didn't date them for 2014!
