    as Im a broke college student at the moment I need something, a solution to help me get by for now at least untill I have saved up enough money for a real subwoofer. I have recently got this cheapo RCA with some free junk off of freecycle and I was thinking on using that for now. It looks to of belonged to a home theater in a box by the looks of it. It uses a 4? inch driver and is maybe about the size of a one of those super tiny computer towers you can mount on the back of a monitor. No active components in there, just two leads coming out the back with bair exposed wire at the ends.

  • Putting up a home theater in the basement. Would you spend extra money to redo the drywall insides and soundproof? Or just buy panels?

    Best answer: Acoustic panels do not add to soundproofing or really effect it at all. Acoustic panels only reduce the sound reverberation WITHIN the room. Adding drywall layers on the walls AND ceiling will go towards soundproofing the room. Soundproofing a room is expensive and tricky. Improving the sound within the room is... show more

There are lots of websites that cover both topics.

  • Soundbar or PC speakers for TV?

    Best answer: Most PC speakers wont work with a HDTV. PC speakers are also designed for "desktop" use. Using them for a whole-room application is like putting bicycle breaks on your car.

    A soundbar is a better choice.

  • Putting together a home theater. Are Anthem receivers really worth the extra cost?

    Best answer: Anthem still makes (uses) class AB amplifiers. These require (and put to good use) hefty transformers (power supplies) and cost more to make, as opposed to the Class D amps enjoying a heyday with many mid-market products, due to their inexpensive cost and light weight..

    Commonly, Class D amplifiers have problems controlling distortion and high frequency sound under several circumstances when in use, and generally are not good bets for high-current amplification Hi-Fi (4 ohm speakers, and such like). They are getting better though, and do generate less heat.

    Some high end speakers do use them, - they are a favorite for built-into-the-speaker applications. Martin Logan used Class D's in their flagship level Electromotion Electostatic panel / Cone Bass driven speakers, likely because of the cost and low internal heat, as speaker cabinets are usually insulated, mostly sealed environments, and cannot simply cut extra venting into the carefully controlled cabinetry. .So they have their uses.

    Class AB amps generate more heat, which also requires more heat sinking, which also adds to their cost and weight. Manufacturers who trouble to make AB class amps with good specifications still, are usually expecting custom from more knowledgeable consumers willing to pay the extra to get superior product. The lower general THD, quality of build, high frequency purity, and the longevity of Class AB amps/receivers are worth the cost to many.

    For a less expensive Class AB option of quality in surround processing audio, You could look at Outlaw Audio's line-up. They sell direct to consumer from their site, fully warrant their units, and make beefy product. There are others, like Emotiva, to look at as well. Receivers generally are not the be-all end-all of audio, and after passing the $1000 dollar mark, looking at these people's offerings is likely a worthwhile thing to do.

  • Need a new power cable for my Logitech speakers. The back of the speaker says 230v. If I use a 240v power cable will it fry the speakers?

    Best answer: The difference between 230 volts and 240 volts is minor
    as far as most equipment is concerned,
    so you have no reason to be concerned.

    Plug it in and use it.

    Best answer: You need Dolby Pro logic or Neo 6 or a similar type of software..Both Neo 6 and Dolby Pro Logic are patented and so their use requires the paying of royalties either to Dolby Laboratories or DTS inc...Neither are available through download and usually are only available through equipment manufactures that are willing to pay the large royalty fee...In addition to the royalty fees companies are also required to meet other standards in production and advertising....For instance manufactures are required to display logos. The Dolby Pro logic logo must appear on equipment and other forms of advertising for the equipment being sold. Same for Neo 6 although sometimes neo 6 does not have to be displayed as long as there is a DTS logo present...Dolby may display Dolby II depending on the version but some form of Dolby Logo must be shown otherwise its a violation of the royalties agreement.

    Best answer: Check the manufacturer's specifications for "sensitivity", measured in dB @ 1 watt @ 1 meter. (A typical entry would look like "89 dB / 1 W / 1 m".)

    Best answer: Check the manufacturer's specifications for "sensitivity",
    measured in dB @ 1 watt @ 1 meter.

    (A typical entry would look like "89 dB / 1 W / 1 m".)


    The higher that number is,
    the louder the speaker will be for a given input signal.

    A 3 dB difference will be just noticeable.
    This is equivalent to doubling the amplifier power.

    A significant increase in volume needs 6 dB,
    equivalent to using four times as much power.

    Doubling the volume takes a difference of 10 dB ---
    equivalent to using Ten times as much power.


    Keep in mind that louder speakers generally don't sound as good as do less sensitive speakers.
    This is an unavoidable tradeoff.

    Best answer: Contrary to the opinions of some, Yamaha has made some outstanding speakers from time to time. Especially monitors. The old NS 1000 comes to mind. But most of their speakers are produced to a strict dollar limit, for sale with very specifically targeted and marketed audio products. Such limits do not encourage good speaker engineering, and it shows in most of their speaker product lineup. A "good enough for who its for" sort of engineering, that spawns lukewarm reviews, comments on boomy bass, and lackluster performance.

    There is an old joke about a farmers son who comes home from agricultural college filled with ideas on how to improve the farm, to which the farmer replied, "Son, I dont farm half as good as I can already!" This sums up a lot of what goes forward in audio from multi product and appliance manufacturers generally.
