post #601 of 791
It looks impressive!!! Please post your opinion once you listen to it. Mine shipped yesterday, and I'm anxious to receive it and install it.
post #602 of 791
there's no need to post his opinion because the sub is mint! the only thing better is more of them teehee

holy go to google and or YouTube and type "what is a subwoofer"
post #607 of 791
how do you do that?
post #608 of 791
lol. I dunno but I've heard you need a computer, not sure what this is but I think it's used to compute things
post #609 of 791
Ok. I made a stupid mistake. I ran all of my speaker wires behind my crown moulding but I forgot about the subwoofer wire. I was thinking of drilling a hole in the floor and running it under the house in the crawl space. Will the sub wire hold up ok? It is pretty moist under the house.

Have you looked at wireless options? Outlaw has what seems to be a decent wireless setup for subs.


On another note, my Klipsch will sell tomorrow, so I'll have an order in for TWO PC12-NSD placed here tomorrow!

Yes it will hold up fine imho. Sub cable is RG6 which is used for satellite and cable tv installation. My Diretv dish cables (RG6) run from the roof, down the side of the house and into the house which is A LOT more moist than under your house. This is ultimately my opinion but it should be fine and worst case is you have to replace it a few years down the road......simple just tape new (replacement)cable to the end of old worn out cable and simply pull back through same openings.

crown as in on the ceiling ? do you have baseboards? if so you might be able to tuck the sub cable between the carpet under the baseboard. generally you'd be suprised how much room there can sometimes be. I ran my 3 front speaker cable this way. and that's with burber carpet (thin stuff).

I'm excited! I sold my Klipsch today and bought TWO PC12-NSD's!

In addition, I will be building a sonosub with a new spare Klipsch 12" driver (from an RW-12d) and testing it out in the rear of the room. I really just want to build one of these subs, so we'll see how well it will mesh with the other two. If I don't like it, my dad will get a cool sub.

I know Fastslappy already saw , but I got my PC12-NSD's in and I really do enjoy them. I don't miss the old subs one bit! I've got the gain turned down pretty good with the woofers barely moving as I'm trying to break them in gently, but both my buddy and I have noticed that these things are much cleaner sounding than the subs they replaced. They also seem to have more output with less cone movement too (until I get a handle on new speakers, I glance at the woofers to see how hard I'm really pushing them).

I am am happy with the move. I tried another ID brand for a sub in another room and was disappointed to the point that I sent it back. Soon I'll turn the gain up to see what they can really do!

Guys what's the best way to break in a subwoofer ? How many hours does it take ?

Thanks

i've heard both theories : break them in slow 0r run them hard from the get go ....
But Bob Crites of the Klipsch Hertiage mod fame said to me when I got the new 15" woofers for my CornScala builds from him .

Before I sold it, I used to put my pc12 on a "subdude" platform to essentially minimize the external vibrations on the hardwood floor. Since the room (& sub) was upstairs, this helped reduce the 'rumble' that carried throughout the house below.

For carpeted flooringand /or most other set-ups, I wouldnt think any base beneath the sub would be necessary.

Thanks guys... ordered a subdude hd.

So which is the best subwoofer cable out there..? or will any generic cable do..?

Does a superior cable make a difference to the sound quality of the bass...?

Thanks

Monoprice or bluejeans are the only way to go. I personally have purchased ALL my cables from monoprice without a single problem
post #623 of 791
anyone bought the special subwoofer cable from the svsound website...? Is it better than a generic cable...?

does it give better quality bass....?

Thanks
post #624 of 791
You're overthinking this... Just about ANY subwoofer cable will be the same.

Go for it, at $130 you will at least be happy to say you have the most expensive sub cable in the neighborhood.
post #626 of 791
I only paid $35 for mine & yes they work very well thank you !
http://www.svsound.com/products-parts-svs_ic.cfm
lifetime replacement warranty. also ..

And yes they do work better than an vanilla RCA cable, I know , I used a regular cable these are better .. IMHO :P

Easy killer calm down. The link he provided (if you click on his "special subwoofer cable" in blue) takes you to a $130 sub cable and that is what I was referring too. I would recommend the svs cable any day of the week for sure. But that cable is $35 which is $95 cheaper that makes a HUGE difference IMO. I would still go with the high quality ones (they have two grades of sub cables) from monoprice any day of the week but would I ever say they are the best out there? No but for the price yes.

I dont know how that link for $130 got created.... i was trying to refer to the svs website subwoofer cable....!

So which would be better....? High quality monoprice cable or svs cable ?

Thanks

I'm calm now !
the MonoPrice cable is just fine also
as i would select up to the better one also , had I seen that price I'd got 2 of the MonoCable ! But you know how when ordering a sub you want everything in the box ready to run when U get it !
BUT the braiding on the SVS is classy & the stiffer cable leads to no tangles,plus they are Very beefy
i got the new SVS cables as they shipped with my 2nd sub ,I had the original SVS cable that was before the current one but I wanted matching cables (did not want 2 different cables for the pair) That cable now is hooked up to the Yamaha Subs in the bedroom . nice little subs in fact fit nicely under a chest-o-drawers only 6" tall , ported too.
http://www.yamahashoponline.com/deta...ST%2DFSW050BL2

you can get these on sale for about $80 as I did

I got another PB12NSD! With dual subs + AS-EQ1, now it has achieved a much smoother frequency response...almost totally flat....
