Not a computer expert, and struggle with computer stuff

That said, it could be as simple as this.
Click on your user name, then "Tools". Follow by "user CP" than "Edit Avatar"
The following should show-up;

"Avatars are small graphics that are displayed under your username whenever you post.
Do not use an avatar (there will be a circle, the left side of this sentence)
Note: if you have a custom avatar selecting this option will delete it."

Make sure, you did not click on that circle. If you did my mistake, click on-it again so the circle is blank.
Hopefully this work for you, if not it could be a case where the end user need so many post before using this option.

One of the threaded inserts (in which the feet screw in) in my sub is freely rotating inside the MDF cabinet. Any ideas on how to fix it? Will gorilla glue work?

Not an uncommon problem.
First you need to remove the threaded insert, could be difficult.
Using a small needle plyer, to put pressure inside and going counter wise to pull up. Work many time with some patience.
If things get stuck, but do have little space to insert a small flat screwdriver. You might be able to work it out.
Those process require lots of patience, since you do not want to damage the MDF on the cabinet.

Once out, inspect the inside. To make sure your Philips crew driver still have a good bit, to re-insert.
If not, go to your local Hardware store, and buy a matching one (very cheap to get).
Once ready to re-insert, normal wood working glue will work just fine.


If the hole is too loose, use the glue and insert a/or few tooth wood pick-it. Push in, and break the top part.
Or fill the hole with some wood filler, insert back the threaded insert. Using pressure and crewing-it until flush. Clean the wood filler that came out.
Let the glue/wood filler cure 24 Hours, even if it say 4 hours.
And should be good as new.

Quick update if I may: Last Friday I acquired my 2nd fv25hp from Greg, which by the way got to see and hear his set up and oh man is that some sweet equipment I personally loved the sealed sub with the Martin Logan's they had absolutely no distortion. Thanks Greg! You ruined how my speakers sound forever jk lol need to get those speakers. So after moving and using the REW I came to a conclusion, data can only fix so much. My ears are the true and final test and going against the grain I used my ears to set my gains and position. I fixed about 90 percent of my nulls by doing so. I spent more time with the REW mic/software then I had anticipated and couldnt find a solution my ears fixed. These subwoofers are the best damn mini fridges I've ever heard. There my taste and I'm happy with my choices sticking with Rythmik. To everyone here who has helped me I thank you, I ain't going no where cause I am building a dedicated HT and will most likely by a 3rd fv25hp lol Yes I am that crazy about bass. Will definitely have alot of questions that I hope I can get inside from you guys. Also yes I know my center is tiny lol

For sure, your LCR setup now has to match what the subs can do.

Here's a question. Is it normal for a woofer to be this color? My other one is fine, I even switch them thinking it was a reflection but I'm stumped?

Just ordered my 1st piano gloss G25HP. Thanks Brian, and Enrico.

I had dual SVS SB16, and sold them a couple months ago to try Rythmik.

My plan: Buy one G25HP, add another one later.

I was lucky enough that I was able to buy a Rythmik L22. I really like it. Very nice sound quality. I probably will sell it down the line to help fund my 2nd G25HP.

In the meantime, who here is mixing different Rythmik subwoofers?

I'm probably going to use both the L22, and G25 together. I hope the L22 will not affect the sound quality of the G25HP.

I'm envious of the G25HP performance, but I think the F18 is a nicer looking sub, at least in terms of the gloss black variants. That may not be fair to say considering I've only seen pics of the G25HP.

And enjoy your new toy, I believe the one you settle on. Was the E15HP2, am I correct?
And don't forget to find a good location for it, to maximize it's potential.

It should not affect the performance, but if having your sub without a grill in a bright room.
I can see why you are asking.

Thanks and when I get it maybe you guys can help me with setting it up. I have a lot to learn, but love doing it. As far as location, there's not much I can do there. I have one spot, but keep in mind this house is temporary. We bought this house quick on a move due to work relocation and it having a fenced in yard for the "badJRT" lol and her two sisters. We have two house showings this weekend to go through and see if the family rooms are big enough to accommodate a very nice H/T setup that I'm going to start as soon as we buy another house. I'll post a few pics of how my sub will have to set once I get it. My current house is only 1300 sq/ft and the room has hardwood floors.

....and yes you're correct, I ordered the E15HP2 black oak. I hope this thing impresses me... I have a feeling it will. The only other sub I have is an Axiom EP500 I bought in 2009 for a system that I haven't had since 2012. Lost it in a move and haven't had a system since. I have that sub in my little computer room hooked up to two Edifier desktop/computer speakers. lol

It's not the picture, it's the woofers. I haven't noticed anything bad it's just very noticeable and wondering. I also took a picture of the other one to make sure its bot my eyes and there is nothing purple-ish in front of it? The picture if this fv25hp is the one in the left of it. I put this one in the same place and has no shade of purple.

While it suck to have only one spot available, at the moment. You may either end up lucky or in a very bad spot, or anything in between.
If you want to learn, this is a very good read;
Guide to Subwoofer Calibration and Bass Preferences
While it is long and can be overwhelming with information, reading it a few time do help.

And coming from an Axiom EP500, I am positive you will have a big smile on your face. Once you listen to your new E15HP2.

Maybe the subs, were made from a different batch of woofer (same exact woofer, just made at a different time).
I also notice, that you have the grills on the side of the subs.
I would not loose sleep over this small difference in color, since you are using grills.
As I would without grills. Since my room is very dark, even with the light on.

Congrats!! I will be anxious to hear how you think the G25HP stacks up against the SVS SB16. That's a great comparison for people who don't have access to, or know people with higher end audio systems. I've lived in Southeast PA for almost 2 years and I've never ever run into a single person who has any type of decent audio system. My point is, people like me can always hear a demo of an SVS model at Magnolia or a local HT store if there's one around and use that as a bar or gauge of how another brand stacks up. I did get to hear an SB3000 and an Ultra SB16 this past December. This will be interesting info coming from a guy who owned SB16's and knew them well.

I'll be getting my first Rythmik next week (I'm hoping, I have no date to receive yet) and once my wife and I buy another house, I'll be looking to buy a twin set of subs such as the G25HP.

I put this one in the same place and has no shade of purple.

I also notice, that you have the grills on the side of the subs.
I would not loose sleep over this small difference in color, since you are using grills.
As I would without grills. Since my room is very dark, even with the light on.

Even with the grills on, in fact a friend confirmed it I thought I was just going crazy lol but doesnt affect the woofer but i wanted to see if this is only my woofers. I leave the grills of I mean I love seeing those things bounce

Here is a picture of Greg's FV25HPs just out of the boxes and they look normal to me. Check also Greg's G25HP. You can see some sort of purple tone but this is due the light he has in the room. If you have LED bulbs with cold light (6500K and up) the black anodized aluminum would look kinda purple. Another cause for this discoloration is if somebody uses solvent to clean the cone.

It's okay I'm not complaining I just thought I would ask lol like I said as long as the woofer is working 100% I'm fine. Is there a way to bring it back to blackish? Like I said if it turns purple I'll just have to match the rest
