It obviously would be a significant logical/money investment, but seems like a more economical approach vs. dealing with units and people on an individual basis. Guess their would also be the potential of pissing off LG and potentially running into some patent issues (maybe?) as well.
Awwwww….yeah. BTHz stepping it up! Man, mad respect for your bass addition, but there is no way I could have a setup like yours. What do you have, like 8 different types of subs or something like that? The OCD in me would drive me absolutely insane…everything has to be uniform and symmetrical, or it would bug me…
Also, how the he!! do you implement everything you have at once? I think I saw a DCX2496 in one of your video’s, does that help integrate all of those subs to play nicely with each other?
Only a few people can follow my system diagram, it is pretty eccentric. WAY beyond your atypical home configuration. It goes something like this...
My source is a PC via a Xonar HDAV, analog RCA-outs to the multi-pre-in's on the UMC-1.
The UMC-1 is my pre-amp for now... which I then split both LR stereo outputs, one stereo pair to my Rotel monoblocks with FMOD-150 HP's and then directly on to the B&W HF in's,
the 2nd stereo pair goes to all the woofers/subs, this is connected to my BFD for RCA to XLR conversion.
[I'm planning on buying an XSP-1 soon, which will do that instead and at much higher fidelity too I might add; thus no longer needing the BFD for that task.]
The BFD also chops off the high bits above 5khz (high-bass). That then goes into two bridged XTI 4K's which have their own XO's and EQ's which feed the LR B&W LF's in dual mono (2+2ohm),
each of those XTI's are daisy-chained in dual-mono/stereo to the DEQ, (this is where the DCX would come in, more on that later), I have an ECM mic connected to the DEQ for RTA monitoring as well,
so after the dynamic EQ'ing and further choping of high bits(sub-bass), this then goes into the iTech 8k, which has it's own XO/DSP/dynamics processors, that powers the LMS (1ohm) and the SDX's (1ohm), this is then stereo daisy-chained to two EP4K's,
one feeds the Daytons in dual-parellel stereo 4ohm, the other EP4K feeds the Mal-21's (which for now is in input-parellel mode at dual 4ohm out).
The other 5 channel outs on the UMC-1 go to my other rotel amps, for the center channel and surrounds for a 7.9+ config in movie-mode (HDMI digital) and 2.9+ config in music-mode (analog hard-wire).
The XSP-1 would be an extension to the UMC-1, I'd hook both of them up together, the UMC-1 becoming my movie-DAC, the XONAR remaining the music-DAC.
So then... purchasing the FP10KQ would allow all 10 subs to finally be on descrete/independent/balanced channels for proper EQing/XO'ing/Delay etc etc, the DCX achieving that and LFE-mixing and would also allow me to preserve the stereo-bass signal to all 10 subs (5L + 5R) , and additionally implement real XO's for the non-crown amps that need it.
[Damn, I'm going to need a zillion more cables to make that all happen.]
It probably goes without saying that I did it this way specifically TO achieve WAY beyond your atypical, Best-Buy / Average-Joe's receiver-type setup. Because if it didn't sound better this way... why would we do it?
For the most part, my system is 100% symmetrically-balanced in placement and stereo imaging BTW, with one exception, that being that I only have one LMS up front right now.
I have 5 different styles of subs, 4 styles of which are currently in-use; so I supose you could say that from that perspective it is not "purely" homogeneous Edited by BassThatHz - 8/23/12 at 9:41pm
