  1. Further information: This Dynaudio Sub 600 was purchased brand new back in July 2019 at a well known HiFi store here in Adelaide. It was meant for a system set up upstairs at my property but this never came into existence due to renovations. (I had bought several items for a complete set up, Dyns special 40’s, Sub 600, Moon amp and Oppo 105D. I am looking to sell some of this gear here). It has unfortunately sat in the box for more than a year waiting for the right moment to be set up. But this will now not happen. I have unboxed it to listen to it. I have used it for about 30 to 40 min and then packed it back in the box. It’s in excellent condition. As new. Excellent build quality and bass is hit in your chest sound. Would rather sell locally but happy to post. Must pay for postage though. Analog Inputs: 1 x RCA LFE, 2 x RCA Stereo Analog Outputs: 1 x RCA Slave Out, 2 x RCA SAT Out Frequency Response (±3dB): 18Hz – 250Hz Box Principle: Sealed High Pass Filter: Flat / 60 / 80Hz Low Pass Filter: 50Hz -150Hz Phase Adjustment: 0/180 degrees Woofer: 30cm MSP Specification sheet for Sub part 1 Amplifier Power: 300W AC Power Input: 100-240V 50/60Hz Standby Power Consumption: < 0.5W Maximum Power Consumption: 325W Weight: 21kg / 46lb Dimensions (W x H x D): 350 x 370 x 420mm 13.8 x 14.6 x 16.5in Photos: PLEASE READ If you are advertising multiple items, you must post one bulk price only, or post seperate ads for each item If you include any reference to pricing whatsoever in this section (excluding RRP), your ad will not be approved If you don't include photographs of the actual item being sold, your ad will not be approved

  3. My nearly-4-year 4-way speaker project has reached a plateau. A little Tassie GTG today made me reflect that it's all been worth (some of) the struggle. The design and build thread is: The most recent photo: But this is a hobby, and this is SNA. Things must proceed. The words "so, it's basically the same as last time" really touched a nerve today (just kidding, you-know-who 😉). This must never happen again! I've played a few low tones and walked around the space - 10 x 6 m, with 3.2 m concrete ceiling, and noticed nulls, halfway along room, at the sides. Not huge, but a bit of a sag around 50-55 Hz. It's a passive system. No DSP. The design aimed to maximize bass extension by doing what few seem to do: use a large vented box. These are 240 litres, with twin 102mm diameter vents. So the new intention is to build 2 subs (stereo of course) to augment the bass, and place them in the "null" areas. This can hopefully coincide with the same distance from the listening position, so there are no time-delay issues. The best option would seem to be in the joint of wall/ceiling, behind the listening position, a bit more than half-way back into the room. How to get them there was an unresolved discussion today. They will be around 320 litres internally, and likely approach 100 kg each; securing them is the easy part, getting them there is another thing. A "sub-crawl" would necessitate a reversal of gravity. I initially thought the best driver would be the same as my 15" SBA woofers, but I was recently tempted by some gorgeous Acoustic Elegance TD15H drivers, so decided to model them in WinISD. It was all settled for a couple of days, then I simmed the SBA's more recent "long-throw" version of my woofer. It's a bit confusing, as the TS parameters are very similar, including X-max. The 3 drivers in this graph are: SB42FHC75-6 black (mine) SB42FHCL75-6 red (new long-throw) Acoustic Elegance TD15H blue These all have LP (hi-cut) filters applied. The black one is the same as my 4-way woofer, cutting off at 100 Hz, as with its present passive 4th-order filter. The blue trace, the AE driver, was very appealing, but both are completely blitzed by the (red) FHCL, so I've ordered 2 of these. Also, the 3" voice coil and greater power handling* (*Edit: wrong - see later posts) appealed. The red and blue traces have a 60 Hz 2nd order filter applied. Of course, this can be adjusted in real life to match the 4-ways and the room. The box sizes are 300 to 320 litres, all vented. So I can't be saved from the spend, but maybe your comments can help me with the next stage - designing the boxes for the wall-ceiling corners? As a cube, internally they could be around 700mm each way, but I anticipate angled baffles, from 45 degrees to whatever into the room. Looks like they'll need to be about 1.6m "wide".
  4. I was struggling to make 1 subwoofer work with 2 amps so I bought a 2nd sub, a Dayton Audio slim subwoofer. It's only 100 watts and a 10" downfiring driver. I wasn't expecting much but I gotta tell you I'm pretty pleased. Gain is at just under 12:00 and the crossover is set at 75. Placement was a breeze. No fuss at all. Seems downfiring speakers negate or minimize peaks and valleys in sound travel. My room is 10x14. It's perfect. I know what it is but for $159 it solved a problem and I don't feel like I'm making any sacrifices. Plus it goes anywhere. On it's side, end, under a couch or chair or even on the wall, though I'll pass on that.
  5. Further information: Owned from new, was used with a set of KEF HTC 3001 SE speakers for a very compact 2.1 music system but could easily be used on its own integrated into a HT system or any 2ch system. retail was around $899, from memory I paid $700 for it new. It’s a sealed subwoofer and very compact at only approx. 28x28x28 cm. pickup preferred as I don’t have the original box, otherwise freight at buyers cost.

  6. I am in the process of building a scoop design subwoofer with a 1600 watt Celestion driver. I am seeking advice for how to power my sub once I have built it. I am looking at a Peavey PV2600 which can be bridged for a total 8 ohm output of 1800 watts. Since there is only one driver I am planning to use that option, I have read online that I can run this power to the one white mono channel on the driver. I am looking to find out if once I am running 1800 watts from the amp, how will I adjust the wattage to 1600 from 1800? I would really appreciate some help with this.
  7. Further information: Downsizing studio (mixers etc) and also my various speakers etc. One of the dust caps on 601s is broken but does not affect the sound at all. Included are good quality (unopened) crossover parts for DIY crossover improvement (to enhance the sound). Easy to do following on-line guide (or sell parts). The Sonic Solutions PB100 subwoofer is designed by B&W and built in UK. Cross-over frequency seems OK for the 601s3. Selling with studio amp (see seperate advert; Hafler P1000) and Preamp (see seperate advert; Perreaux SM2).

  8. Item: Power Sound Audio XS30SE Subwoofer Price Range: $1000 to $1500 condition dependent. Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Perth local would be ideal, as would Espresso finish, but any will do.
  9. HI all. I have a stereo Setup (Denon DRA-375RD and Wharfedale Diamond 9.5) which i am relatively happy with for the time being (with the little one running around). It is mainly used for music but is also plugged into the TV for when we watch movies. The room is around 20sqm I was thinking of adding a smallish sub to compliment the system using high level inputs as the amp does not have a sub out. What would people recommend for a sub $500 sub, i dont mind purchasing second hand as i will eventually do proper HT when the little one grows up a bit. I would predominantly want it for music but also be able to perform when watching movies (that is more important than sounding good with movies and poor with music) Cheers, Luke
  10. Hi Guys, another newbie question. I've been after some speaker wire. i've seen people use cat5/cat6 and all that but i think i'd just stick to standard speaker wires. I'll be using the furthest speaker with about 17-18m because of how the speaker wire needs to be routed. All speakers are rated at 150W but the Front ones that are rated at 250W. the amp will be set under the TV and the only wires to be routed to the right will be the front right and the Surround right all other ones will have to be routed through the left passing from the TV through Subwoofer, front left, surround left, back left and back right (about 17m) unfortunately the house is rented and i cannot drill foor/wall/ceiling. I've read online that i would need 14 Gauge wiring for the speakers but didnt say anything about distance. was just power and ohms. Would it be ok to use 12Gauge instead of 14 gauge? would that have any implications ? or better to just stick with 14 gauge? would anyone have any suggestions on wire to buy that wouldnt be that expensive? what are the thoughts on ugly? https://www.selby.com.au/brands/ugly-cable/ugly-12-awg-speaker-cable-420-strands-ug12.html have anyone used knukonceptz ? http://www.knukonceptz.com/home-theater/speaker-wire/kord-speaker-wire/sp/kord-ultra-flex-12-gauge-speaker-wire-100/ I think i'll need in total about 70-75m of wiring so can get expensive fast. the idea is to use banana plugs for everything. i would probably use the same wire with RCA connector for the sub. current setup: Front: NHT C4 Centre: Gale 20 Back & Surround: Axis LS28 Subwoofer: Sound Dynamics THS-10 TV FL S C FR SL SR BL BR distance from amp: C(enter): 3-4m to be able to route through the tv unit S(ub): 4m FL: 5m FR: 6m SL: 10m SR: 12m BL: 14m BR: 18m
  11. So i searched the web trying to find the best way to set up a subwoofer with a variable phase dial for a 2 channel system as i was having difficulties, when i stumbled accross this and thought it might interest people. Pretty easy and makes sense really. i got the same results set to 140 and they are perfectly in sync and sounds the best i have heard my set up its amazing. If anyone else has any worthwhile hacks i would love to here them. Also curious as quite new to subwoofers why all subs dont have a variable phase? He used this audio cd to find the frequency he needed https://www.amazon.com/Sheffield-A2TnB-Test-Disc-My/dp/B000V93NKY I just used this one and selected the range i wanted to use This is a quote straight from the post. Most subwoofer users understand the need for a continuously variable phase control to help greatly with the setup and integration with the main speakers. (FYI setting crossover and levels is easier to do and should be done first) . In the past I have used room measurements to set the phase control- rotate the knob until the response is flattest- with decent success. More recently I used the concept of "timing" the subwoofer and main speakers by playing a track with constant beats- then rotating the phase control until it sounds synchronized or strongest. This worked well but seems to work better with limited range monitor speakers and not so well with fuller range towers. Many sites suggest that you "adjust until the bass sounds loudest" . This isn't the best idea because you could be adjusting such that you are creating a summed peak in the response. Having just added (2) subs to my system I recalled my mobile audio days as to how to best set the phase of the subwoofers. Here is what I did (two subwoofers). You can use the same method with a single sub as well. 1) Reverse the leads of the main speakers so that (+) goes to (-) and vice versa. 2) Shift balance to that side (e.g. right speaker, right sub) 3) Use a demo disk (see below) and play the test tone that corresponds to your crossover frequency. In my case the frequency is 63Hz. 4) Rotate the phase control gradually until the tone is as silent as possible at your listening position. The main will be out of phase with the sub and the two will cancel each other. I did this with the right sub/speaker set and the 63Hz tone became silent between 120 -degrees and 160 -degrees on the app / dial. I set it to 14o degrees, dead even between the two. For the left speaker and sub the 63Hz tone became silent at 180-degrees. 5) Reverse the leads back to normal on the main speakers- and WOW! A completely integrated and sweet sounding speaker system! The bass became smooth, continuous, warm and effortless. Punches are completely in sync and powerful without effort, sustained notes are smooth and decay so naturally. There are no signs of separation between subs and mains. They act as "one" more than I have ever heard. By far the best method i have ever used to integrate a subwoofer.

  13. Further information: Re-posted with lower price. Cherry wood veneer color. This is the first edition that uses a bigger box, down-firing. It makes for a good looking side table! Review of this edition link below: https://hometheaterhifi.com/volume_13_1/svs-pb12-plus-subwoofer-1-2006-part-1.html Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  14. Further information: Up for sale are my 2 (small factor) subwoofers. These have a 12" down firing woofer with two 10" passive radiators on the side. Items can be split, and one of them has some more markings on the top than the other and will be cheaper priced. They both have build in EQ but you need to buy the paradigm PBK mic to be able to use it. (not included) Both can be shipped into their original packaging. Specifications can be found here https://www.paradigm.com/en/sealed/ultracube-12 Thanks to its design and use of passive radiators (also makes for great handles for carrying) these are rather small in size which makes them easy to fit into a common living room, and having 2 subs you are better equipped to deal with room modes, and you get a 6dB increase, compared to one sub.

  15. Further information: Rrp: $4199. Bought as a store demo 3 months ago. In perfect working condition. The unit has some cosmetic damage shown in the top cover (pictured) and there is one tiny 5mm hole in the cylinder cloth material. I have the original box and accessories - foam inserts. Prefer local sale as it's very big and heavy. Interstate sale possible but buyer to organize courier. Updated with 2 extra pictures of the 5mm mesh hole, one is a close up, other is zoomed out.

  16. My current system consists of a pair of Infinity reference 152 speakers powered by a (recently purchased) Primare Prisma i15 integrated amp. I'd like to get more out of the setup, potentially with a sub. However, I live in an apartment, so volume levels can't be super loud. The listening space is also rather small - 4.5 x 7m room with the speakers facing in the narrow direction. Will a sub enhance the base performance of my system, even at low to medium volumes? Does deep bass penetrate walls to the chagrin of neighbours? Would I be better off investing in a higher-end pair of speakers? If a sub does fit into my setup, what are some criteria for choosing a good one? Any specific suggestions?
  17. Hi all, great site Was hoping to get some advice or suggestions because the issue I am having with my sub is driving me to distraction! Hardware: Black Jensen SPX-19 glass-topped sub woofer (about 13 years old) driven by Onkyo receiver. Connected from amp via stereo RCA composite cables. Switch set to 'Auto'. Phase switch set to 'Normal' and 'Video/Audio' set to 'Video. I usually have the front 'Volume' left dial set to about 11 o'clock and the 'Frequency' right dial set to about 9 o'clock. Great sub and wonderful depth. Problem: Sub used to automatically go into standby mode (when not enough level from amp or amp powered off) but now no longer does. Instead the blue LED indicators on the front of the sub blink on & off with the red LED and the sub itself 'rumbles' until eventually after a few minutes it goes into standby mode. Very frustrating! If I just turn off the sub by the power GPO it stops the rumbling and the flashing LEDS and the sub just powers 'off' but this is neither practical or ideal to do every time I've finished with it. Was hoping a power-cycle of the sub might fix it but it didn't. This is a new fault. Have enjoyed this sub for many years and never had an issue with it. I presume this is the Auto-switch (located at the back) which I'm guessing is either faulty or the cause of something else failing? I've tried changing RCA leads both at the sub end and at the receiver end but no change. I must admit i haven't tried a different amp but I am assuming this is a sub issue and not a receiver problem. Love to hear from anyone who might have some insight or knowledge of this sub or even of the issue itself. Am I right in assuming it could be the auto switch? If so is this serviceable or repairable? Let me know if more info is required to troubleshoot or if anyone has any suggestions or advice! Thanks in advance Robbo

  20. Hi all, At the moment, I have a Klein DAC III feeding a Primaluna Prologue Premium preamp feeding a Musical Fidelity A5CR power amp into Audio Physic Classic 30s. I have a definite technology Supercube 3 subwoofer and want to attach it to the system. What is the best way to do this? The preamp does not have a pre-out. Do I have to run speaker cables in parallel from the preamp, or is there a neater solution? Cheers,
