And I am extremely humbled and grateful. Dual 2.4kw HP's will be quite a step up from a single HSU VTF 15H with a 350 watt amp! I will have a 2 channel jbl setup until spring when I get my (most likely) JTR Noesis. Plus I scored one of the Sherbourn PA 7350 amps so it's slowly coming together! I am a grateful AVS-er as of lately! smile.gif

Great to hear that worked out for both of you. Do enjoy the new subs!

...

Of course we all know both of these guys are thinking they could upgrade to HP+ and slave in the future to get back to the bliss of quad SubMersives. cool.gif

Ha guess you got to know me a little from the gtg. I confess, I was on your new master/slave forum earlier looking at prices for the future! smile.gif

Or perhaps better stated you know people who are willing to spend thousands on subs are serious about their bass!

They already come with the Submersives so don't worry and I do have subwoofer RCA cables.

I am using a very low quality RCA cable for connecting my SMS-1 to my receiver. This is probably a bad thing.

Does quality matter in RCA cables?

You can probably improve/remove that dip at 63 Hz by adjusting the subwoofer distance in your receiver/processor. Leave screen up so that you can instantly see if the change in distance is working. It's not unreasonable for the subwoofer distance to be greater than what you think it should be. For example, you may sit 10' from your sub; but, you may have to set the distance to 15' in order to remove the dip. So, I suggest playing around with the sub distance to see if that will help you out.

Good luck!

Moved distance across the board , but nothing changed. Also I know the volume on sms is just a utility gain but I never notice any changes to the sub volume...

Dear wife of 44 years who passed away wouldn't allow a firearm in the house so I gave up shooting for her. I was a qualified Marine Rifle expert in the '60's and missed target shooting. Have just now taken it up again and my HT room is fine with what it's got. So changing hobbies is what decided my selling of the Submersives and jlpowell84 is putting together his dream system. Passing it forward with a good deal for him and one day he will do the same for someone else.

Sir you are both a class act and what everyman married should strive to be! and that's a loving husband!

Enjoy the range sounds like fun wink.gif

It matters in the sense that you want good mechanical performance from the cable - by that I mean you want properly made connectors that give a good connection plus good shielding and a durable sheath over the whole cable. Cables don't have a 'sound' as many of the snake-oil cable sellers would have you believe, so as long as they are reasonably well-made there's no need to spend a fortune. Monoprice cables are fantastic value for example, as are Blue Jeans. No need to spend any more.

Good point there. Yesterday I saw some rca cables worth about $1,000+!

You mean they were priced at $1,000 I assume. They are probably worth $15.

 

Here's an expensive cable - the reviews are very complimentary and well worth reading ;)

One of the advertisers here, Blue Jeans Cable has a lot of info on cables in general. (I am using XLR myself)
 

 

Here is a link to RCA info: http://www.bluejeanscable.com/store/subwoofer/index.htm

I'm not a fan of the monoprice RCA connectors any more. They have too stiff a connector and I feel like I"m going to break my RCA ouput on the AVR in order to plug them in. Sometimes I have to yank with both arms to pull the cable off. So while that is a tight connection - it's way too tight.

I've moved to Hosa cables for my new cables. They are available on amazon, are inexpensive, are of good quality rubber sleeves, and seem adequate for my use.

I have no experience with blue jeans cables - but I have heard good feedback about them as well - bonus that they are a forum supporter.

Of course it does!

Probably the worst thing about cheap cables is the connectors - what they are and how they are attached. Most cables fail within an inch or two of the ends. That said I've seen cheap cable that made me wonder why anybody wasted time terminating it.

I started building audio cables professionally at the age of 13 (1959) in a Lafayette Radio store and have built, installed, terminated and repaired tens of thousands of cables.

That all said, there are few home audio cables that can't be custom made by a good cable house (Markertek, BJC, etc.) for less than $50, many for less than $20, and off-the-shelf for $10- 30.

The cables that come with equipment are usually not top shelf, but they will probably work because if they don't, its a warranty hit just like the component itself failed. Their most common technical problem is that they are too short.

Wonderfully entertaining aren't they?  And they seem to have identified the unique qualities of that cable very precisely too. ;)

post #8573 of 9372
Oh yea, look up the audio quest cables too. Amazon and other sites. They get even better!
