  1. How to handle multi Subwoofer setup

    As a recap to get a better understanding before I dig in. If my subs are placed at equal distance from my LP, that doesn't automatically mean that their signal are time aligned? The only thing that could this is a miniDSP or a Processor that can set induvidual timing on two subs? If time alignment happens to be within limits would I need the miniDSP if I: Only looking at integrating subs with movies. Have the ability to software EQ each individual sub and adjust level and phase. (PBK kit) Can software EQ both subs together. (REW /JRiver) To integrate two subs with my mains I would automatically look at a miniDSP or a processor that can handle 2 individual subs and set high pass filters?
  2. How to handle multi Subwoofer setup

    I have settled for my subwoofer placement and I used the "golden ratio" 1:1'618 It might be a bit unorthodox, but this seems to produce the best result by ear. I tried the 1/4 room width placement but the subs have 2 passive radiators which when placed in line with each other produces some rumbling side effects. When placed in line with the speaker smack bang against the wall, the radiator facing the wall is producing some rumbling and harsh side effects. There is still a lot of work to do. Masters and Commanders the canon's scene sound rather good, but the Start Trek intro is nothing but unpleasant rumbling of noise.
  3. Yeah, that's the one. That bumping is very pronounced and raw with little subtlety. I assume it should sound like some vibrsting noises throughout the Hubble and the use of the pneumatic drill. It just doesn't feel right and has some awkward peaks.
  4. It has rather been a while since the last post. But can anyone tell me what bass and sub base sounds they hear when playing this specific scene in Gravity. It is the scene early in the movie where Sandra Bullock and George Clooney are together removing a panel from the Hubble telescope. Even with my subwoofers turned off the the bass sounds very rough and out of proportions and peak vibrations inside the room. Probably room nodes, but the whole bass and sub bass sounds award and not in place.

  9. Using Y Splitters

    Multimeter measuring resistance at the inputs. Already confirmed with Zaphod Beeblebrox. The normal input when selected is showing 42k Ohms, and 100 Ohms when not selected. The power amp direct input is showing 40k Ohms when selected and 0.2 Ohms when not selected.
  10. Using Y Splitters

    It should also produce the same sound with or without a pre amp. Which it doesn't, and it is not the pre amp that is make my the difference.
  11. Using Y Splitters

    What was happening is that while the power amp input was not selected, the impedance of that input would drop to almost zero. The impedance on the pre amp input does drop a bit when switched off, but not much. What I am trying to figure out is why my DAC isn't able to drive a power amplifier directly. The specs on my previous power amp suggest that it would work, but the outcome was a rather flat and lean sound. The plan with this amp was, to be able to switch between, the DAC through a pre amp vs directly into a power amp, to listen for differences. To check if my previous power amp was the problem, or that the DAC is the problem in a DAC into power amp combo.
  12. I don't have enough HDMI ports left, so the ChromeCast is going. But that has been used to stream audio from Google Play. There is a desktop version for ChromeCast audio, but last time I used it it was rather slow and I believe needed a specific app setup.
  13. How to handle multi Subwoofer setup

    I'll have to get back to this after the holidays. Might as well order the miniDSP and bring some reading material so I can start on this once I am back.
  14. Any ideas on using an SDHC card to run the OS? I have run out of SSD's. All this thing has to do is grab audio and video streams from the network. I wouldn't think there would be much writing to the risk.
  15. Do different metals matter in connections.

    Would that be bare wire crimped into a connector, or would I have to use a ferrel first.
