Loudspeaker designers never consider 'speed', as all drivers react at the same speed. They also do not consider pitch definition. Those are words that laymen sometimes incorrectly apply to some of the concerns that loudspeaker designers do consider but the layman does not know how to describe in engineering terms.
Cone size in and of itself only affects one result, the angle of dispersion. Every other result is determined by the two dozen odd T/S specs and other driver details.

Some of us are able to follow what Boyce was getting at in layman terms, and some designers do voice their speakers based on subjective listening tests and not rely completely on engineering terms and measurements. Speed and pitch definition is often referred to when describing bass quality, I am sure you have been around long enough to recognize this, no need to be pedantic. As you said there are many other factors that could explain the phenomenon (possibly indirectly related to size) so we shouldn't kill the discussion so fast.

What I found more interesting was the lack of company info. I could not find anything introducing who they are and where their facilities are, if any... Just a phone number (Vancouver BC area code which could be just an importer).

hi guys


just installed my brand new sub 12 studio.

i tried to pbk it as i had the kit included in the price

no problem to install it on the laptop, software works, and both sub and mic are correctly detected both by laptop and paradigm pbk software


when i go to Tools and quick measure then the sub play his tone, and the software does the measure.

but when i want to run the 5 point calibration then it fails.

it detects the sub, it detects the mic and serial of mic, then it launches the tone of the sub, and then it says error 0000x04, impossible to successfully measure the response of the sub.
in the same message it advice to move up the level of the sub, and try again, but even pushing it at full speed, it just doesn't work


anyone had the same issue? any idea?

cheers

Grats on the Sub 12. Sorry no info on the problem. I use ARC with my receiver and that works fine.
post #819 of 830
Just wondering with the pbk do I run this first then Yamaha ypao? Or run ypao with no sub the run pbk by itself. ?
Your help is most appreciated.

hi

first you must run pbk on the sub

when this is done then you launch your av amplifier calibration

cheers

Thanks for that what should the volume and frequency be set at?

Funkywaves is now called Funk Audio. It is located in the Sunshine Coast, Half Moon Bay. Not an importer, they make their own subs. Just visited them today smile.gif
You can check out their website.

Hope you guys are enjoying your Sub12. The industrial design on these subs is first rate! Love how they look.

Why isn't this info on their website?

Not sure why AVfile, would have to ask them. It is a small family run business, with his father and brother-in-law helping out.
Has a machine shop, as they make some of the parts for the subs right on the premises.
For their top end subs, they make their own drivers and amps.

Im also looking at the paradigm subs. I will use them for both music and cinema, should I buy two Sub 12 or one Sub 1? I can save some bucks with buying two sub 12 compared to one sub 1, but how is two sub 12 sounds compare to the sub 1?
post #826 of 830
Just got my sub 12 and ran my pbk
post #827 of 830
It's been a while, but what was your decision? I'm also facing the same decision, 2 Sub 12's or 1 Sub 1. I'm going with S8/C5/ADP3 5.0. 50% music, 50% movies.

Hi, I just purchased a sub15 and pbk. I am having trouble getting the mic to work. Im using windows 7 home. All drivers and firmware is up to date. In pbk it detects the mic but saying can not find valid mic when i start to run the test. In device manager it says class 10 error. I have tried reinstalling multiple times and it keeps getting this error. Please help me!
post #829 of 830
It may sound silly but have you tried a different USB port. I had a similar problem on my win 7 laptop and swapping ports worked.

I also had trouble with Windows 7 Home finding the Mic. An online upgrade to Windows 7 Professional solved the problem.
