    I have a 25 yo B&W mid range speaker, a multimeter, and the lack of belief these speakers really sounded as bad as they currently do, in their prime So, i wanna check to see if the crossover is withing tolerances. Is there anything else I should keep in mind, besides checking capacitor tolerances?

  3. Home Theater Computers
    It feels ackward to post this question in the "home theater computers" area, but I'd like to know if anyone can recommend something like a MiniDSP that connects to my PC via USB and has only 2-3 unbalanced analog audio outputs. I already have a MiniDSP 2x4 HD and I don't need another one for...

    I just bought a pair of used Kef Reference 205 speakers and when testing them properly at home I noticed that one of the speakers is clearly missing a lot of high frequency sounds. I DO still get sounds from the Uni-Q and even from the Uni-Q tweeter, and the sounds it does play sounds fine...

    Hi people. Good to be on here. I thought I'd ask opinions .... I've quickly set up my upgraded system (includes the 3090 centre and 3010's at the back) but don't seem to be getting much from the QB12. I'm obviously doing something simple wrong!...I used the YPAO, maybe I should do it manually...

    Hello, am new to forum and am looking for instructions to access crossover on M1si. I have seen and read about accessing the M3si crossover on inside side panel after removing woofer. But I think on the M1si you have to access it by removing bottom base plate and a second plate underneath the...

    Hello guys, I'm designing my own speakers for my home. I've chosen the following drivers and crossover: Hertz 1650.3. Both the tweeter and woofer are rated at 4 ohms each. I plan to pair them with my Denon pma600ne which supports 4 ohm speakers. Because these speakers are normally meant to be...

    Selling a MiniDSP DDRC-24 with Dirac and a remote, along with a calibrated UMIK-1 microphone. These are in like-new condition, as I have only used them for a couple of days. I bought them to run as a crossover so I could add a subwoofer to my active speakers. I've since decided to go another...

    Good day, my first post! WHY IT HAPPENED: I have a set of KEF C7's I use in my dorm at my university residence either at a really low volume (to study) or REALLY loud (special occasions party vibe...) In our home's living room they can't fill the room with deep bass (although being quite a...
  14. 2-Channel Audio
    Hey Everyone, I am looking for an answer to what i think is a very basic confusion about connecting sub-woofer/s to a stereo system. Either i have the understanding all wrong to this seemingly simple concept or i feel more people should have been asking this, because i looked all over and...

    Like many my 'CS-G303's are ok. But the paper on the midranges is shot. I think this is a common issue with vintage-paper-cones. Especially this model. It looks like when you search on ebay for parts, you can't even find people selling ones that aren't 'worn'. I seem to remember people...

    I am starting to put together my first home theater and came across something I don't understand in some of the Klipsch center channel speaker specs. They are listing 2 crossover frequencies with only two speaker sizes in an enclosure, a woofer and a tweeter. For example: RC-64 III: 1,000 Hz &...

    Hello all, I'm not looking for sales advice or anything this is just confusing the hell out of me because I want to choose the best speaker for my system and I think there needs to be a source of information on the internet as to which of these speakers would be best for a sub/sat config. Here...

    Hi AVSForum Newbie here, hoping to get advice on repairing/upgrading the crossovers for a pair of KEF C20 type SP3053 speakers (100W 8 Ohm) which have been in the family for more than 30 years. One crossover is fine, the other crossover doesn't work at all (I tested the drivers by swapping the...

    We all know the coveted HT rule: Set your speakers as small/limited range with a 80-100Hz crossover, even if you have tower speakers, spare your amp and speakers the extra work, and let your sub take care of the lows. Here's my thing...what do you tell the person who's a "purist" and only runs...
