New member, possible future Rhythmik owner?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
OK so I want to a get a Rhythmik sub.

Stereo setup.

Room dimensions are 14.5ft x 11.5ft

HK 3490 Receiver
Monitor Audio Bronze BX-2 mains

Optional equipment:
Behringer DCX2496 Crossover / EQ / PEQ / (so many other things)
Behringer EPX2000 amplifier
Samson S-Convert (for converting RCA to Balanced)


I'm trying to decide on whether to get just the driver, and go DIY (I know a friend who has been building enclosures for ~8 years now),
or purchase a full setup from Rhythmik.

The main benefits of using my existing equipment would be placement (I have plenty of speaker wire sitting around..) and cost (No need to buy the extra amp)

The downside would be possible not the full "servo" experience..

Help a new guy out? first post..

I am not too familiar with anything DIY but it seems you would have to weigh the benefits of having Servo tech over saving a chunk of cash and not using the Servo. I can tell you that I have had my FV15HP for about a month now and it is a great sub. Nice, fast, and articulate is what comes to mind but in the cases where you need that real low bass it can that too. I have not done too much music listening on it yet (mostly movies) but to me it seems like the servo tech does a good job of controlling the cone even though it is in a ported enclosure.

You could also buy the amp and driver from Rythmik, then build your own enclosure as many others have done.

I designed and built my own servo sub back in the early 80's (my own electronics and cabinet with a commercial dual-coil driver) and have never looked back. I have a pair of F12's now.

I was going to mention that option also but I thought the OP seemed intent on using what gear he had.
