DSPeaker Anti-Mode 8033S packs a set of new attracting features:

- Stereo input connectors
- 4 X Gold Plated Protrusive RCA connectors that allow connection with the most demanding interconnection cables.
- Quiet on/off with automatic fade in.
- Increased dynamics and SNR for High-End use.
- Increased frequency range up to 240Hz to allow use with active mid-bass systems.
- Flexible powering - 9VAC / 12VDC.

I'm assuming the improved pass through frequency response of the S would benefit my Epik Empire?

only if you are crossing it VERY high...

note the "active mid-bass systems" comment...

No kidding, and for the price these were on sale at I don't see myself losing much money if/when I sell it in the future.

Impulse buy...

Will use my sms-1 to set up my sub location and then sell it

Got my 8033S. The units RCA connectors seem to have a little bit of play & when connectors are moved gently the inside board seems to move a little bit. Is this normal?

Hi,
Do I need to run the set up again if I switch off the power of the Antimode?

Thanks

No, the memory for the settings is non-volatile.

Just got a new PC12-NSD DSP and bought an anti-mode at the same time.. It's amazing how much such a small tiny box can do to such a huge subwoofer

In other words, I too find it amazing for it's price..

Google is your friend.

or you could go to the manufacturer's site.

If you bought them at the same time, did you ever try the sub without the 8033? Forgive me if I'm taking your "at the same time" comment too literal... Just curious if you heard the sub without using it.

hi,

I did try the sub without the antidote using the bypass feature, and yes it Sounds much better when using the eq of the 8033c..

I upgraded from a velodyne CHT and using that I had problems with standing waves in my room. with the SVS, these are still there, however not as bad, but the antimode completely solved this issue.

So, the antimode has worked wonders for me..

Selling my Anti-mode 8033. Just upgraded my Audyssey and re-positioned subs where I don't need it anymore. Please PM or email: pharmdpjt@gmail.com

Hi guys, have a question; when setting up the 8033S from my avr for my sub, do I run the RCA cable from my woofer output on the avr to the left or right input on the 8033S or does it make any difference when just using this for my Sub?

Makes no difference if using one sub.

I have dual subs that run from one amp - which model would be the preferred model?

Correction-wise Anti-Mode 8033C and S are identical. There a quite a few improvements in 8033S, but they are relatively small. Because you only have one LFE signal to work with, you can very well manage with the C model.

Just wanted to throw out a big THANK YOU to "deepstang" for his help.

My antimode 8033c should be here on Monday. Cant wait to see what it can do. I have a Seaton Submersive (great sub) and when I ran REW I had a huge peak at 20Hz.

By the way my room is about 1/2 done so there will be many changes over the next little bit.

Anyway hoping to tame that peak so I can hear the rest of the low end. I'm thinking this little box will get a work-out over the new few months until the room gets complete.

OK, I'm thinking of upgrading my receiver after auditioning the 4311 however I intend on keeping my 8033c in use because I definitely need/want the 35hz lift function. I have dual Empires and they sounded really good after running XT32 without the 8033 but I definitely noticed not having the lift in effect. My question is how to properly connect the 8033c to a receiver like the 4311 or A3000 that has dual sub outputs to dual Empires.

Use one sub out from the receiver into the 8033 and then a splitter from the 8033 to the two Empires. Or you could of course buy a second 8033 and use one per sub, but that would not only be overkill, but could potentially also give you worse result as you then will EQ each sub individually and not together (which can cause cancellations/doubling issues)
post #205 of 554
You can hook up both subs independently to the Anti-mode by inverting the phase on one of them (the directions are more detailed in the manual).

This is the FR of the Epik Empire from another thread. The black line is with the X/O bypassed. Will an 8033 flatten out that response?

I'm not sure exactly how the 8033 works so I don't know if it will see the below 80hz drop off as a null and not correct it or if it will (hopefully) see the above 80hz increase as a peak and correct it.
post #207 of 554
Audiojan & Ovation- Thanks for both of your solutions to my situation. I guess my question is which would be best or would they both yield the same results.

I would think it would see it as a peak (as long as the crossover setting in your AVR is above that frequency--say 120hz or higher). Otherwise, the Anti-mode will only "see" what you send it. If you set the AVR at 80hz, then it will not attempt to tame the peak that is above that frequency (well, it will try a little bit, as no crossover is a brick wall, but it won't try very hard).

I got the Antimode 8033c hooked up and configured this week. I have an Integra 40.1 and a Seaton Submersive.

What I did was hook the Antimode up and ran the configuration. Then ran the Audussey configuration in the Integra. Went into the Integra and confirmed my crossovers. I set my at 60Hz for the speakers and 80Hz for the LPF of the subwoofer. I then added 90cm or (2.8 ft) to the distance of the subwoofer.

Does this sound right? I think so.

So now I'm ready to demo and hear my Seaton come alive. My Seaton is placed on my front stage between my left and center speaker. Only 1 Seaton right now.

I began the demo with the flat response set on the Antimode and it sounded good. But (as I was warned) the sub sounded totally different that what I was use to (without any EQ at all and a 1/2 finished room). The sub was quieter. I'm not talking volume wise. I was getting 75db on my meter when checking the Audussey setup.

Hard to explain but the sub did not seem to have all the extra bass noise that it once did. The sound seemed cleaner and less muddy. But it would hit hard and would come alive when it needed to. I played "NIN - the four of us are dying" and the floor never stopped moving.

So far I like the sound but it is something I going to have to get use to. I guess this is my learning phase. I tried several movie clips and again the sub would hit hard when it needed to but be real quite otherwise.

I realize this probably does not make sense. But so far I'm really liking the addition of the Antimode and I really am enjoying Mark Seaton's creation! This truly is an excellent sub. And the Antimode is solving alot of the EQ issues I have/had. A little more tweaking and I think I will have it just about where I want it. Today I'm trying the "Lift 25" setting and I like it better than the flat setting.
post #210 of 554
I had a similar intial experience after setting up the 8033.

I have two sealed 15" subs up front, and I found the same feeling of quieter, but cleaner bass. I played with the controls and lifts when I only had one sub in the back corner of the room, but eventually settled on the flat setting for both up front.

I think that most people are conditioned over the years to expect heavy bass, most likely to a lack of knowledge on set up or lack of equipment to properly set it up. That's why it takes some getting used to when the sub and response curve is set correctly. (Myself included)
