If a drop ceiling, your good as those are panels. I just checked the video again and it looks like a sheetrocked ceiling with acoustical spray.

since R&L is mostly a midwest carrier my guess is R&L shipped it intermodal and it was on a train to get unloaded at Sacremento for a few days

Sure you can. It just needs to be LOUD. A number of recent studies have shown that the threshold of hearing extends below 20 Hz. The SPL's just need to be over 90 - 100 dB:

Thanks for reposting that, Craig. It's good to spread the word. smile.gif

If anyone wants to read the whole boatload of proof that frequencies below 20Hz can be heard by humans, read my post here and follow the links to much more information. It's a really, really long debate that took place awhile back, but I think it's very good information for everyone who's interested, especially those who are most skeptical. smile.gif

Triax has landed.... We got it in place about an hour ago. I also had a hum on mine. frown.gif I decided to use an extension cord and plug it into my Monster 7000 powercenter. The hum is gone but I do have a low noise that is like a small motor running. I tried using the cheater plug and it hated it. I tried other outlets with and without the cheater and decided the best way was through the high power filtered outlet on the 7000. I ran Audyssey and then did a quick preview of WWZ. I did not have a chance to crank it as my wife is home, so I listened @ -25. The fresh calibration with the La Scalas and the Triax was definitely refreshing! My mic will be in next week and at that point I will do the REW check. Later when no one is home I will try a reference level run of a movie. I have the Triax set @ 8 right now.

As a suggestion, make sure you house heater fan isn't running and unplug any refrigerators and freezers as their noise can back feed into the line.
post #2053 of 3312
Thats right. Who needs to be warm, when you have the triax!!! Haha

smile.gif very jealous!!

But it is going through the Monster power center... Shouldn't that stop that from happening? One thing though... the extension cord is running about 6" from the refer.

I would expect but I have no idea how good Monster Power Centers are. Can you plug into an outlet not so close to the refrigerator? I know when I run REW, it picks up the 60Hz hum of the equipment and to get rid of the standing waves at 60Hz and 120Hz, I have to unplug the refrigerator and freezer in the kitchen and make sure the heater/AC fan is off.

It's harder to remember to plug them back in as I'm so worried about the new REW readings. tongue.gif

Alright!!!!
I got my Triax. I tipped the driver (very nice guy) and he helped my place it to the final distention.
It is big (I mean big and heavy). I didn't get a chance to calibrate it since I had to come back to work.

I will try to do the calibration and get a taste of tonight.
I am sure my neighbor's dog will start barking.
I have a dedicated 20amp outlet for it. I hope that will break it's thirst and run stronger.

Keep us posted! And crank it up! biggrin.gif

At least I won't go away feeling like a church mouse. biggrin.gif

The only way I see going better would be DIY with some RE Audio XXX 18's and I definitely don't want to go there.

Did I miss the post where you said what you decided to get?

All posters on walls, ceilings lamps, doors, and things I never knew rattle are rattling! I walked upstairs and when you stand on the top floor the vibrations rattle through your spine, it's like a war zone upstairs! As I walk back down through the stairwell the pressure is coming up the stairs like I'm walking through a giant porthole in a sub! I maxed everything out and this sub won't clip, I've got the spl meter riding 129dbs like there's no tomorrow! This sub ain't no joke, insane power, tight clean bass, it's exactly what I wanted. I'm calling Tom tomorrow and am going to order another Triax, this is perfect!!

Congrats Black! This made me laugh and smile. Very happy for all you Triax owners....

Thanks bro! The Triax really came through with more surprises than I thought, this thing screams to be let loose! All the waiting was worth it and I didnt hesitate to get a 2nd one ordered.

I ran the extension cord to another outlet, and got the same hum. So I decided to try the cheater plug... Dead silent now. smile.gif I guess that is just a fact of life when you buy a house made in 1964.

Congrats on your prize Ellis! In regards to your hum, my buddy recently purchased a submersive and had the same issue. He went to radio shack and bought a ground loop isolator that did the trick. If I remember correctly, it plugs into the RCA cable...but it seems like you have it figured out with the cheater plug. Let us know when you crank it up!

When we can eventually get the cash to do the HT, it will have a dedicated circuit for all the audio in the room. I just tried a little demo of Tron with the sub @0 and the Denon @ -25 and I can already see it is going to be awesome when it is cranked.

BTW: My minidsp mic just showed up. Maybe Thursday I can get a chance to see what it is doing... I know that I won't be able to do anything about it though until I can get a minidsp or something. I am assuming that if I try to do anything manually with the 4520 it will knock out my current settings for the whole setup.

CONGRATS, i hope your liking it, and WE all want to hear how you LOVE the Triax.

So far I used the XLR adapter they sent with it and plugged the power cord into the outlet with no cheater plug and it has no humming or sound at all, on or off. I wonder why some people have it and others don't? It must be a house wiring difference?

It does seem counter intuitive, but that's why ported subs shine from an output per dollar standpoint. In the FV15HPs case, it sacrifices very low 'below 12.5hz anechoic' output for very high (compared to sealed) above 12.5hz output at and a little above port tune. Typically, a sub that uses the same amp/driver and has both a sealed and ported design, the ported design will have ~10db more output at its tune compared to its sealed counterpart. The FV15HP happens to be tuned very low.

 

Depending on room size (<1500cf), a Triax could get you in-room reference output to mid single digits, where as the Rythmik would die off after 10hz in room. Additionally, sealed will never have port noise.

 

Design tradeoffs...depends on room, budget, and goals.
