I re-ran Audyssey after taking my amp out of the mix because of the dead pre-out. The levels change with and without an amp so probably best to re-run MCAAC.

What would you guys go with? The pb-1000 or sb-1000? Which one would provide more clarity and which one would have more impact to it?

Neither. I would go with the Rythmik LV12R for $589.

Is it that much better?

you can ask in a subwoofer thread and get more feed back, but the rythmik will dig deeper. I don't have svc so I can't compare them. but my rythmik is very detailed. I think the F12 is better for music, but the LV12r does not sound like a compromised sub, its just not sealed.

Rythmik direct servo subs are a little tighter and more accurate than conventional subwoofers because they don't allow the tension of the driver surround material to spring the driver back and forth. Direct servo subs push and then pull the driver back and forth.

Conventional ported subs will give you more kick while possibly a little boomy (seemingly more powerful). Sealed ones will be tighter but require much more powerful amps and may cost more for this reason. You should go and listen to both ported and sealed subs in a controlled environment.

I noticed today that when I turn on my QSC GX3 amp on I can hear a small pop sound coming from the right front speaker only. Is this normal?

Well, I just finished with the installation and the first thing that I did after that was ............................ posted pics here.....wink.gif

I need to re-run Audyssey and then I'll try to measure frequency responses at my room using REW. But, yeah! I can notice the RTi A's aren't as harsh as before, there is better imaging from the front stage, I switched to Audyssey DSX and the surround speakers are more defined now too, before pretty much the sound was coming from the front and I didn't hear anything special from the surround and surround back speakers. Now, they DSX decoding seems to be doing more in my room than before.

Funny thing is that in theory these are acoustic treatments to deal with mid / high frequencies, but the bass sound tighter and cleaner to me. Placebo effect? Perhaps...........but, the heck with that it sounds nicer to me.......tongue.gif

I'll try Time from Pink Floyd (SACD) and then I'll test a movie.............but I just have few minutes before the game!

Cheers.

I didn't want to go crazy building more than the ones that you see at the pics due to WAF. But, when I called my wife to show her the changes made at the room, she told me: honey, why didn't you build more for the other areas, you have room there for more???

eek.gif


So, Lowe's here I come! I need to buy more wood and I'll built at least 3 more panels. I still have some Owens Corning 703 and fabric (different color). I have the "know how" power and therefore, it shouldn't take me that long...........biggrin.gif

Carlos, those look incredible. I was considering doing the same thing. I need to reduce some room reflection as well.

Thanks man, if you have a chance do it!!!

It wasn't that difficult, building the frames was the time consuming part, I just made them to fit the OC703, I used a very thin fabric as extra precaution due to the nature of the OC703 (fiberglass material), but I just realized the microfiber (cover fabric) that I purchased is actually more than enough for this project. So, I'm going to avoid this step on my new set of panels............wink.gif

I notice during certain listening modes my speakers display some white noise,, most noticeable is during Theater Dimension. Can anyone chime in on this??
I had re-ran audyssey the other day and first noticed it yesterday, not sure if it did that before i reran it.
onkyo818, rtia7, csia6

I noticed the same thing on my onkyo929 with a couple of the THX modes.. but not on others .. i just refrain from using them .. but if you are running 3.1 then i can see why you used Theater Dimensional.. have you check all your speaker connections to ensure they are secure and not crossing over or anything like that?

Gain staging is simply managing the relative signal levels in a system. One amp one AVR, should be an easy task. I typically run the signal to my amps a little on the hot side. MCACC would be a great starting point. May try setting the amp attenuators ~75% pre-MCACC and see how things go. You also have the option of turning the L+R (and Center if you add an amp in the future) AVR internal amps off.

Small pops are typically nothing to cause worry. Try turning the AVR volume all the way down each time you power off. This may eliminate the pop.
