Do you think some Devastators will add to the theater?
Sorry, I am not familiar with Devastators.

Dimensions: 48.00" high, 24.75” wide, 30.00” deep (121.9cm x 62.9cm x 76.2cm) assembled.

Good googly moogly that is a big sub. I am sure it is amazing, but I am sure I would have to enjoy it outside behind the treeline behind our house because I would have about a less than zero chance of "sneaking" that one by the wife. Here I am trying to figure out how I might slip one or two more of these little SVS-SB3000's into the room and they are like a tick compared to those.

a Google search fails to find the answer so can anyone tell me what it means when the blue light starts flashing every second on a miniDSP HD?

while waiting on your answer, I would contact support at minidsp.com, they will respond within a day or 2. The sight also has a forum, which might include and answer to your problem as well. Good luck.

@Lesmor did you try resetting your miniDSP?

Its just recently started playing up
I did try a factory reset which doesn't help
Although it showed connected it wouldn't mute my front sub
The option to synchronise popped up which I did but this results in a loud thump from the subs
that seems to fix things but then that's when the blue light starts to flash

The video is amazing at explaining how to set it up. honestly i couldn't of done it without it.

Much better in my opinion than to read a huge PDF guide.

Make sure you get the 2x4HD.

Any questions just ask, you could also PM me if required.

Good luck.

First off, excellent videos sir, they have really been the best source of information for me in getting everything situated properly.

And speaking of coming a long way, I realized recently just how far i had come when I compared my setup from 3 years ago to what I'm using now. I had a single sub hooked up to my AVR, ran a 5.1 system, and barely knew how to use Audyssey - now I run 6 subs integrated into the system with a minidsp 2x4 hd, use a power amp for 5 of the base level channels in my 7.6.4 Atmos setup, and have multiple Gik panels/traps throughout it.

I know that 6 subs may seem excessive but they aren't that powerful (Bic F12's are rated for 150 watts RMS) and i have an oddly shaped room, so being able to place them at key points really helps to smooth it all out.

A friend of mine recently gave me 2 more identical subs so i'm keen to add them into the system as well and i wondered what minidsp unit would be the best for this task since my current 2x4 hd can't accurately accommodate that many subs. I've teetered between a few of their units (the 4x10, the 8x8, and the C-DSP 6x8) but I'm leaning towards going with the 2x8 kit/box and running the 10x10 Crossover v1 plug-in with it so that i can still get the max delay of 15ms and the 48kHz sample rate.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this, and if it helps to give you better perspective, i had 2 prev. posts in this thread (post # 219 and 234) that gives some more information about the room.

New subs or New mesurments

My setup is a modest one but would like to obtain the best from it as possible. I currently have a Living room setup as 7.2.2 all going through my Marantz sr7010. The first sub is an old Tannoy HTS, FR-6dB 29Hz-200Hz, 8" long throw driver down firing CF 50-200Hz. Sub 2 is a Tannoy TS2.8 Low F roll off -6dB 34Hz, 8" long throw side firing woofer+ 8" long throw auxiliary bass radiator, CF 50-150Hz.

I had to invert sub 1 as couldn't get any better results. both subs are at front either side of the mains. I have been looking at two new subs and have narrowed it down to Two, any thoughts as to which to purchase?.

Monitor Audio silver w12 Low f response 20hz

Excellent video! However, cant get pass the setting up of the mini dsp! I am sure that once I get it to work I will be able to fallow you. Hello there I am very frustrated that I cant get the mini dps hd to work. It produces no sound i have followed the instructions and so not know what to do I finally gave up. Dennon 4200, connected the rca to sub 1 out from receiver one to mini dsp. And both subs to out on dsp. Powered subs and no sound. Used rew and as output it shows dsp doesn't recognize the dennon to play the content over the avr. I can get the dap connected finally. But that is it. When I tried to produce the pink noise of 60hz over the subs nothing. Had all the crossover se to 250hz. Thanks for any help this way. This cost me over $ 300 to have it not work! Thanks in advance!

Make sure to have the MiniDsp set to Analog on the Control Panel, it may be set to USB, it's on the input screen, it can be overlooked as a option if not looking for it

As Jimmy said check that it's set to analog. Look in the description of Ep 7 and I tell you where to find the setting depending on what minidsp you're using.

No sound from Marantz AVP

@cdy2179

This is a great tutorial and I`ve now got a 2x4 HD and REW to really dial in my 2 subs.

The problem I have before I even start is my Marantz AVP won`t play any sounds from my Windows 10 laptop on micro HDMI, every setting I can think of is checked and correct and the Marantz is the selected playback device and drivers updated etc but it won`t play any sounds on any speaker configuration. If I connect the laptop to a tv the sound / test tones work as normal but nothing through the Marantz.

I`ve tried both Java and Asio4all options on REW but still nothing, although I realise it`s not going to work if Windows 10 test tones are silent as well.

Has anyone else had an issue like this and got it sorted ?

Thanks very much.
Dave

Is the MiniDSP 2x4 HD set to analog in the input section (left side)?

Yes that is set correct and the subs play normally, it`s getting the laptop to play any sound through the Marantz at all that was the issue.

Just got it working !

I tried HDMI in the front aux input, then one of the rear inputs and neither worked. Swapped it to another input and it started working, very odd !

Cheers,

Awesome. Thanks guys for helping each other out. i wish there was a forum like this or something similar on Youtube so guys could help from the video besides just the comments section. I'm not able to spend too much time helping as this is all a side hobby and I stay so busy.

I`ve been into home theater for 25+ years and even now thought REW as being too complicated to get into, but after seeing your videos and how you explain the details, and subscribing to your channel, I`m really keen to learn more and max out my subs.

Before I got my JL subs a few years back I did make a failed attempt to build a pair of 15" subs, got the first completed and setup. It seemed to go deep but not much else, never got round to building the second sub and scrapped the idea completely.

Understanding REW and learning what you can measure with it will make a future DIY attempt an option.

And I recently did videos on designing subs in winISD as well so just follow that and you'll never buy another non DIY sub again.!

It seems like most people connect the laptop (REW) to the AVR with an HDMI cable. I do not have an HDMI cable nearly long enough to do that but I do have a very long 1/8" to RCA cable. Would it be a bad idea to use that to output the test signals to my AVR?

I would spend $25-30 and get a longer HDMI cable

Question..

I know the new beta can be used to align subs with main speakers.. Let's say at 80hz etc..

Can this same new tool be used to align just subs together?

I have 2 subs I want to align to each other, then align the 2 subs together to main speakers.

If this can work just for subs, what settings do I choose..

thanks

even with a 5-6ft regular HDMI cable you could sit close to your AVR. just make sure the mic is at the MLP.
