    My current HT setup is a set of Energy Take Classic 5.0 surrounds, a Dayton Audio SUB-1000 and a Denon AVR-760h. I've had this setup for about 10 years now (excluding AVR which I got recently), and have been pretty happy with it. I finally replaced my 51" plasma after the same time frame with...

    Hello! I was wondering if there really is a difference which justifies the price difference in 18" pro drivers. For example: The Dayton PA460 costs like 200$ now. Is it really 3x worse than a B&C 18SW115 which costs 600$? Is there a sonical difference EXCLUDING the power capacity? Thank you!

    2x new in box Dayton PA460-8 18 inch subwoofer drivers from PE. This can be used to build a VBSS or a solid MBM, or as a driver replacement for a budget 18 pro sub. I am located in southeast Michigan and local pickup preferred due to weight, however if you are willing to pay for shipping then...

    I took a few measurements in the main listening position in my setup at various SPL levels to get an idea of how much bass I "need", and how close I am to getting there with low distortion. I'm wondering if folks on the forum have done the same / have SPL numbers with distortion graphs available...

    I got some time this weekend to work with MSO. The green ones are MSO, the red ones are my previous EQ that are sub only + Audyssey. (Audyssey is disabled here for MSO - I'll try to run it and see what happens). This is measured at MLP. It looks like group delay got worse. Also, the delays...

    I just set up an Atmos 7.2 surround system (in-wall/ceiling Monoprice Alpha) in my great room (25x21 w/ 8' ceilings). Right now I have 2 Polk PSW108's, running off my Onkyo 676, that my wife purchased for me on Black Friday. The Atmos is GREAT but I have no low end, the Polks just can't keep up...

    Hi, as the title says i want to upgrade my old PSW10 for something a bit better. My budget is not great, under 300, and even worse, in my country subs are incredibly expensive. I've been researching the best and most popular subs people recommend and have narrowed it down to 2 options: Bic F12...

    I've had my Yamaha RX-V377 for a few years now and up until now I've been using a cheap Monoprice sub. Just recently the sub went so I picked myself up a Dayton Audio SUB-1200, but wanted to make sure I get the most out of my new equipment. After plugging it in, I re-ran the receiver's automatic...

    Hi, looking for advice. I picked up a Klipsch R-10SW for about $175 (sale at Fry's) and am liking it so far. I've seen mixed reviews about it though, mostly based on its MSRP of closer to $400. Would I be better off looking at something like the Dayton SUB-1200 or SUB-1500, at a price...

    I have used the ND65-4 in a few builds and have been pretty impressed with them. Most of the time, I just used them in a sealed enclosure, as I tried to keep the size down. This time, I decided to use a 1" port. UPDATE Inspiration My friend was having a home warming party and wanted me to...
