There's an old saying that you can't polish a turd. Actually, you can. But who wants a polished turd?
You might be able to get them sounding better with EQ, but they'll never sound as good as a nice pair of bookshelves and real subs.

Ok then...let's change this up now. What speaker types should I look into to go with my receiver?
post #33 of 51
It depends more on your room size and what you're intended use is. Movies or music?

Both. But more for TV and movies. This sounds really good now for it , so can I just add a powered woofer? I had one but it just stopped working. What should I look for?

Seems like a generic PA/DJ speaker.

The crossovers aren't *too* bad quality-wise: the inductors (i.e. coils) are of the air-core type and it seems the capacitors are non-electrolytic.

Btw I've seen power meters before on some older speakers back in the 80s.

I looked these up and cannot find anything other than pictures. They are supposedly a DJ speaker.

What kind of powered subwoofer do you hook up to the subwoofer out on the receiver? I'm seeing allot of them but none look like the one I have. The one I have only has a power cord and a level knob, and a single input for a subwoofer cable.
post #39 of 51
The sub you have will work just fine with your receiver. You have a singe sub out on the back middle top of your receiver. Hook one end of the sub cable to that, and ten hok the other to the input of your sub. Plug your sub into the wall, run MCACC and you're done.

The sub I have doesn't power on anymore, that's why i'm asking what sub to get. I see allot with multiple hook UPS in the back when mine only had one. I don't know how they hook up. I am thinking about just getting a Sony sa-w2500. How do I hook that up?
post #41 of 51
It doesn't matter that it has more than one input. You can just pick one or the other input, or get Y adapter and use both. That Sony sub is a piece of junk. Can you afford a Klipsch RW-12D?

Definitely not. And I would never spend that much on one anyway. Maybe if I listened to it all the time instead of just occasionally. Got a cheaper idea?

The Dayton Audio sub is a great one for the price.

That Dayton is nice. Is theater solutions any good?

Anyone know what would cause my pioneer sub to not power on? Wall outlet works, fuse inside is good.
post #47 of 51
It could be any number of things. It may have another fuse inside where you'd have to remove the amp to get to it.

Anyone have that Dayton sub? I'm leaning towards that and wanna know from some people who may have one or heard on, how good it is.
post #49 of 51
Do a search, you'll find a lot on it.

How is that 8" and 10"Dayton sub? The woman is not a big fan of allot of bass, so I think the 12"will be to much
post #51 of 51
You can always turn it down if its too much bass. But if its not enough then you're stuck. I would err on the side of getting the bigger sub and just turning it down.
