  1. Yeah I sold mine on here for $300,they are still an awesome AVR if you just need 5.1 (or 7.1), if you can get one cheap I'd jump on it
  2. Oh ok then...seems weird though… even brand new in box you'll probably take a big hit selling the ML Dynamo 12" right now, it's a shame they won't let you trade it towards a PB-2000Pro at a $$ amount that works for both of you
  3. I'm sure you'll be happy, lot's of good gear there to work with That said... as previously mentioned by myself and others, I would personally not try and mix those 2 x subs. Mixing ported and sealed (or 2x ported subs with different tunes) can cause havoc with your bass response - as in make it WORSE than just running a single of either due to phase cancellations, and the Yamaha's auto room correction (YPOA) does little to nothing in the bass region (Audyssey,Dirac,Anthem ARC are all much better here) If you're set on the Dynamo 1100 in the pack, I'd enquire about swapping th
  4. What kind of ballpark $$$'s are we talking here? If it was me, I would look at something like these Centre https://www.selby.com.au/brands/krix/krix-vortex-mk2-centre-speaker.html Left, Right and Surrounds https://www.selby.com.au/brands/krix/krix-equinox-bookshelf-speakers-pair.html Subs http://www.deephzaudio.com/Specials.html Don't get me wrong, the PB2000 Pro is a very good subwoofer, but the PSA 1500 for $1650 is a no-brainer !!!
  5. Tough for me to say mate, speakers are a very individual choice, what 1 person likes, another may dislike. Subs, on the other hand, can be judged more objectively - will it meet the performance metrics you require? Personally I would NOT get any of the packages that include a below average subwoofer. Bass is soooo important to Home Theatre!! I would ask for a package deal on the speakers you like best, and go get 1-2 of the best subs you can afford ,either from them or from somewhere else Of the choices provided - I would much rather save the $3000 - get the Paradi
  6. No one technically NEEDS even 1 subwoofer, so no you don't need another. BUT (as I said before) if you are willing to put some time into setting them up, then yes you would benefit from duals. I had dual (and then quad) SVS Pb-2000s and managed to get a pretty smooth response - much smoother than when I only had a single
  7. Just typed out a huge reply,but your other thread was deleted, so I lost it 1.No, but it will help get a smoother response if you put the work in 2.PB2000 Pro. 8-10dB more output than the SB2000 Pro under 35Hz 3.Sell the V12. They are really below average for a ported sub in this range No Passing CEA result at 16 and 20Hz ? That's rubbish for something in this range 97dB at 25Hz at 25% distortion?? and only 102dB at 31.5Hz at 28% distortion?? ( The PB-2000 produced 108dB and 110dB at those same frequencies with less t
  8. I would recommend getting one a bit longer than you need right now, to allow for future placement flexibility. Adding a ft or 2 now will only add a few dollars to the price, but may save you having to buy another later on because it's not long enough. I'm not sure what your budget is for this, so $75 may seem lot for a subwoofer cable - though compared with some other brands , it's actually a minuscule amount- but this cable will last a LONG time. I've owned one of their older model cables for well over 10yrs and I've gone through probably 8-10 subwoofers since then (God help me
  9. I would get a Blue Jeans Cable LC-1 subwoofer cable, the best quality cable I've had . Hand made in the USA and absolutely top shelf customer service. The connectors are clones of the Canare RCAP connectors and are excellent quality and give a very solid connection. No snake oil, ground unicorn horn or pixie dust, just a solid product at an affordable price (due to the extensive shielding - they are not overly flexible though) https://www.bluejeanscable.com/store/subwoofer/index.htm
  10. have you measured the response with the panels in and out? I'm not sure how a couple of relatively small panels cause such a noticeable peak in the response
  11. Damn - what a bargain! Always thought these where a very interesting design, they've got a lot fans in the US GLWTS!
  12. Move the plant Couch forward as far as allowable (avoiding the dead centre of the room) Put subwoofer behind couch .... something like the JTR Cap 4000ST (Sofa Table) 😄
  13. *Just a heads up* I would think twice about that if it's the 1850s on GT, another member bought some of the Krix commercial surrounds off Gumtree, and they didn't work
  14. Yeah, a true bargain here, had a PB-1000 a few years ago and they are super impressive for their size!
  15. Still a great sub. Awesomely detailed review too, and written by Ed Mullen - a few years before he started working for SVS
  16. Maybe there's a local with PSA speakers you can demo? I'm in QLD and my setup is nothing special, but you would be welcome to demo them if you were local. I'll admit, I am biased, but I don't feel there is much in Australia that can match the PSA MT-110 for mainly Home Theater use at around $1k ea delivered (Peter usually discounts for SN members), moving up to the larger Krix, JBL Synthesis and Klipsch THX and Heritage models will definitely get you the performance you're after,but likely for more $$$. The Krix Megaphonix In-Room would be a great choice at $1395 ea tho
  17. Are you measuring using bandwidth limited pink noise?AVR internal test tones? Is the mic the EXACT same distance from each speaker?
  18. Wow! They are gorgeous! GLWTS On a side note - you always have the coolest stuff for sale!!
  19. They are designed to play with a subwoofer though,even my MTM-210's are only good to 60Hz (though my AVR will always cross them over at 40Hz) IMHO there isn't many speakers available in Australia that can compete with them for Home Theatre use (without going to way more expensive options) , the MTM-210s are 8 Ohm, true 98dB 1W/1m sensitivity, can play at THX reference level if needed , have tonnes of midbass kick, and have excellent off axis response. In room, they give me a nice flat response out to 18kHz, and can handle being crossed over to multiple 15" subwoofers
  20. Before doing anything else, order a umik-1 from miniDSP and download REW, so you can actually SEE what the problems are. Otherwise, you may sell this, get 1 or 2 different subs and be in the exact same situation you are in now. This will be the best $130 you can spend on your system You might find, after measuring your frequency response, that moving your speakers wider and putting the sub on the inside right (or left side) smooths things out, or moving your seating position back (or forward) takes you out of a null or peak, or a combination of moving the sub plus your seating position ar
  21. I would contact Paul at Red Spade Audio about getting some custom HE2's made up http://www.redspade.com.au/audio/HE2.php High sensitivity, easy 8 Ohm load, controlled directivity. Should also be capable of some very good mid-bass Specs 25 to 50 Hz depending on room High sensitivity 94db easy to drive 8 ohm load 1000 H x310 D x 280 W weight 35.5 kg
  22. DIY have a look in his Theatre thread linked in his sig
  23. It's certainly strange that this one particular (IMHO not too demanding) scene is causing distortion problems. I think you're onto something with the L&R surround levels Could you check another scene (if you have it) ? The Flight of The Phoenix (2004) plane crash scene has heavy use of all channels and one of the hottest recorded LFE tracks ever recorded, approaching 0dB at 32Hz
  24. i grabbed that PvA from the "Ultimate List of Bass in Movies" thread on AVS, the BEQ guys are just so much faster at getting the graphs up I do read the BEQ thread from time to time, but EQing neutered movies is just a bridge to far for me mate, I just couldn't be stuffed lol
  25. They should do well - if you like the sound of them. The price is very good for and 8" + horn loaded compression driver with 96dB 1w/1m sensitivity. Can you listen to them before purchasing?
