post #12271 of 15225
FWIW, I like the dynamics in my set up with Dynamic Volume set to "Low" as opposed to "OFF". With Dyn Vol "OFF" I expected all the sounds to be loud and without any correction but I find that the "LOW" setting has more dynamics than the OFF which sounds very bland.

Dyn Vol settings of "MEDIUM" and "HIGH" sound like they are taming the dynamics in volume as per their name with "HIGH" being highly tamed but the setting of OFF and LOW are not very clear to me.

I do not have the pb13U but from databass number, the FV15hp edges it. Sound quality wise, I have read that the pb13U is very good for music, not as good for movie. The Rythmik has servo amp that makes it sound articulate. How articulate in compare to the PB13U, i do not know. SVS has 45 days trial and pay for FULL refund both way so can try it out with the FV15hp to compare. If you like the FV15hp, send the SVS back with no cost out of pocket. But if you like the svs then you will have to pay for shipping the Rythmik back.

Why do Rythmik subs take a nose dive around 100? Or am I reading this wrong on their sites chart? Does this mean it can't extend over 100 well?

Actually, I think the PB13Ultra is considered better for movies than music. That's true of not just the PB13Ultra but of all ported subs, to one degree or another. The Rythmik will be, as are all Rythmiks, great for both. The more important consideration, however, between ported and sealed, and everyone agrees on this, is the cubic volume the sub has to fill. The smaller the room, the better the sealed will do, and visa versa.

Part of the nose dive is because the graph is made up of 3.5dB gradients as opposed to five or ten that we're use to. So from peak to the second line down is ~6dB as opposed to 10dB down.

Check out Data-Bass to get a better idea (lots of graphs) what the Rythmik FV15HP is capable up.

Congrats. That's way cool. Ours are still being held hostage by UPS. frown.gif

For me, the excitement is knowing that we'll be able to again, watch all the great bass movies, in all the bass glory they were meant to be watched.

Excellent! That model hasn't been talked about much lately, but it's my favorite of the Rythmik line-up. The DS1510 driver is awesome! It's in the FV15HP also, but sealed subs are my preference. For a music-only system in a relatively small room it's the one to get, IMO. It's great for movies as well, of course.

Our concern is the half plane measurement place the back firing driver/or port at a disadvantage. Josh has done some modelling. But I don't think it is as convincing as having two subs with everything same except one has rear firing port and one has front firing port (ie, LV12F). In short, we are not ready to send our LV12R until we can get a sample of LV12F and send both units to test.

Anyone here plays with peq on with LFE input? Not sure what it does. Thanks.

You were looking at the graph of line in. If LFE in is used, FR goes up to 200hz.
post #12282 of 15225
Is the amp used in the FV15HP the same as in the F15HP? I.e. could a person take the driver and amp out of a FV15HP and build a sealed box similiar to the F15HP?
post #12283 of 15225
It's for my basement, it's approx 30x30ft but there is a bar in 1 corner and pool table in another, and other half will be used for "theater" area approx 25x15ft. I was always thinking to get svs, it had great reviews and looks good too but I;m sure it will be very large and now I found Rythmik which is a bit taller but will take less floor space, but has too many buttons on the back smile.gif

You may only consider a portion of that space the theater, but your subwoofer(s) won't I'm afraid. They see it all, so that's the calculation you need to go by. If the ceilings are only 8' that gives you 7200 ft^3 to fill, which is cavernous. A pair of FV15HP's is what you'll need to get sufficient output.

LV12F? Did I miss something?

The PEQ does the same thing for the LFE input as it does for the LINE input, which is to bring down in level (the EQ in PEQ is equalize) a sharp peak in the subs frequency response due to room dimensions (a mode). The controls let you dial in the center frequency of the peak you want to cut, and the Q (width of the cut, i.e. narrow or broad in frequency range, above and below the center frequency).

R is Rear and F is Front---location of the port.

That part I already figured out. wink.gif It sounded like he was designing a new model, similar to the FV12 of yore.
post #12290 of 15225
I look forward to seeing pics of the new sub, and to seeing how the F and R versions fare and compare on data-bass.com.

I take it you don't have an old FV12 lying around that you could just send with the LV12R?

Speaking of future plans, do you guys have any intention of producing an FV25HP? That would be a perfect add to the FV15HP. And if possible, tune it to 10Hz.

(what can I say? Yes, I can get greedy.)

I have two FV15HPs on their way. I have an eye on adding a future (no guarantee) FV15HP but would much rather add a FV25HP. Tuned to 10Hz, with an eye on 6Hz or 8Hz, now that's an upgrade worth getting excited about. biggrin.gif

Thanks for responding. smile.gif I'll just have to wait then until you have what you need. The tests will answer my curiosity of the LV-12R output capabilities compared to that of the SVS PB12NSD?
post #12294 of 15225
Maybe I missed it in this huge thread but did Rythmik release the 8" sealed sub yet (I think dual 8's like the F25)?

I'm building a music room 16' x 13' with vaulted 9' to 13' ceiling, sealed room. I would like to know what is the minimum I can get away with. I'm in Canada so I want to keep the price down and at the same time I'm too lazy to build.

I do not really want to buy the LV12.
post #12295 of 15225
I think it's on hold. Why not an LV12, cost, size, or ???

Port...

I know, I know...
It's a music only room, I would buy a LV12 for the TV room but for my music only room I want the best/$$ with still filling the room. I'm a pure Classical music guy and the only subs I have liked was a Rel and the Paradigm Servo 15 version 1.
I want but do not need Bass, I have returned a lot of subs because they sounded too much like a sub or they did not go as low as my mains.
I'm just looking for flat performance to 16Hz (I can't hear passed 25hz mad.gif), as I want my system to be playing everything from my CD's or LP's.

Right now the F12G is looking good but will one be good for my room size?

Nobody talks about the "G" model.

No, they are not the same.
The driver is the same yet the amp is configured differently for a ported enclosure. I asked the same question from Brian/Rythmik prior to ordering my two 1510 kits.

Thanks for the info. That was my suspicion, but I couldn't find anything definitive.
