post #46681 of 51472
While were inquiring about speakers, anyone have a single RC-10 they are looking to sell. I am thinking about replacing my rc-mini center with an RC-10 to match the fronts.

I would also be willing to buy a pair if someone else is looking to split them.

Thanks.

Congrats on the new addition to your family.

Although I have bad news for you about finding time. It may be a while before you get any of that anymore.

Thanks Neutro!

Just got my V-Ss today and hooked up. Quick Q about the di/bipole settings...what does the dial do underneath the switch? I put it in the middle for now, but does anyone know how turning to the left or right impacts the sound?
post #46685 of 51472
The dial is a volume control for the side-mounted drivers. Putting it at the lowest setting basically mutes them and turns it into a direct-firing speaker, and then the higher you put it, the more dispersed the soundfield will be.

Sir batPIG thank you so much i followed youre instructions dayton sub 0.00 db and klipsch sub 0.5db then run aud all positions subwoofer is +1.00. All is good. This is the only place where i can put each subs due of my small living room. Dayton on the left klipsch on the right.

Hi guys. A friend asked me about a budget WALL-MOUNTABLE or IN-WALL speaker system. I think he is thinking more along the lines of 3.1 (perhaps 5.1) due to children.
Usually energy is a great bang for buck.
We are in CANADA. Any recommendations on Take Classic, Micros, or anything wall mounted (or in wall)

Gotcha. The veritas owner's manual is so bare bones I couldn't find anything regarding how to set up the surrounds...only where to place them.

Thanks.

Looks great!

Small suggestion - try sliding the center forward a bit to cut down on reflections from the entertainment center.

also I recommend to put the ports plugs on the front left corner speaker or a corner bass trap, it will make a improvement to the sound.

Personally I would plug your front right too just to keep the same sound coming from your mains
post #46699 of 51472
All of your speakers look like they are very close to the wall behind them. I would plug ports on all three front speakers and then re run Audyssey. You will get higher crossovers but probably enhanced clarity, and with the dual subs there is plenty of coverage below 100hz.

Thanks guys. I just put the plugs for the three of them. And i will run audm again. Will let you guys know. Thanks.

So I have tried out the dual s10.2 setup with several different things.

Music:
  • Tighter bass across the stage (this must be what people meant when they said it enhanced bass for different listening areas)
  • Drums/bass guitars are more distinguished
  • An even more "full" sound for all types of music. This full sound isn't like when talking about speakers that sacrifice clarity for fullness. This just adds a fullness to the clarity already there.

Movies: (So far have watched parts of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, The Tigger Movie and currently watching Polar Express)
  • With the Transformers and Polar Express the bass was PHENOMENAL! The transformers when shooting or crashing into things hit LOW. The train when it first pulls into the neighborhood to pick up the boy shook the walls of my apartment and if I wasn't in awe I would have gotten up to turn it down. BUT didn't smile.gif
  • My daughter begged to watch The Tigger Movie last night and even with a kids movie, the bass made me smile. Again, like the music, the fullness really made it feel more "theater-like"
  • My brother came over to hear the new sub duo and we also watched the intro song to The Lorax. Great demo material by the way. It is a song mixed with the beginning of the movie where the entire city sings, so you get highs, lows, VERY LOWS and just a mix of everything. Plus it is an entertaining, cute movie.

Video Games: (So far just have played NBA 2K13, Halo 4 and Skyrim)
  • NBA 2K13 is one of my favorite games, but the only thing I can't stand is how loud the game is at low volumes. The bass is also a bit intrusive anyways, so the added decibals from the extra sub kind of made it unpleasant. BUT as I said, it already was that way even before the extra sub.
  • Halo 4 was fantastic when playing solo. With the dual subs and added volume things like grenades and the jet pack actually rumbled the apartment and it was fun trying out all the weapons and items just to see how they'd sound with a bit of extra "oomph".
  • Skyrim I just played for a few minutes but was fortunate to find a dragon in that short of time. This was both funny and not. The funny part was my daughter got scared. The not funny part? My daughter got scared. The dragon flew overhead and when it roared, the apartment shook. When the wings flapped, the apartment shook. It was absolutely incredible. The only thing ruining that experience was me having to pull my daughter out from between the couches who was curled in a ball and crying.

No problem. Now you can take some time off this forum and enjoy yourself some audio smile.gif I'm sure you're sick of trying to get everything together, so sit back, relax and immerse yourself in amazing sound
post #46703 of 51472
caloyzki , batpig and mac just give you a excellent advice, I think you probably will be more happy with the results.smile.gif if you wants to hear things a little-bit more clear that's the route, unless you use acoustic treatments.
post #46704 of 51472
Guys thablnk you so much again. Just re run aud. With the plugs and i noticed some chamges with the aud. Results and i can tell you right away it sounds more detailed than what i have before. WOW! Im watching now battle of los angeles wow with the sounds! What a big difference.I thank all of you guys. Batpig, mac, and las. One last question my avr. Sets my dual subs with the trim of -0.5. Do you guys prefer to bump the sub results after the aud and the other trim settings?

You can adjust the sub a bit to your liking after audyssey.

Word of caution though, especially when jumping straight to movies like Battle: Los Angeles... Don't push your speakers too hard when ports are plugged.

Thanks. I will do that on my sub. Any reason regarding. Push the speakers too hard? I only sets my volume above reference level like -10db. Hope that is fine.
post #46707 of 51472
mac do you think it will hurt the speakers at 80hz?never experienced any problem with plug on at loud volumes, my impression was more controlled and tighter bass and also a more clear sound.

Maybe not. I have had mine at lower crossovers and was told not to push it too hard. So I am just careful always... wouldn't want to damage these speakers. But I am sure you'd be able to hear if it is getting too loud or hurting the speaker. Anyone know for sure how low the speakers would have to be to damage a plugged ported speaker? Now I'm curious! smile.gif
post #46709 of 51472
All my xovers are also set to 80hz. With all fronts ported with plugs. Please let us know. I always watch movies blurays at reference level. Hope my speakers will not geg damage.

They should be fine then. I wasn't trying to scare you, but rather just say not to jump straight to super loud material.
