Hi TuneLand



Here is a thread for those using Sub Woofers both for hooking up and tuning in. There are several ways to hookup your subs using splitters and different configurations and hopefully the Tunees will share their experiences. AND, there are tons of ways to tune them.

thanks

For my main systems, I have been a one source listener for a long time. The CD has been my choice for that one source. There are several reasons why I personally take this approach, but the biggest one is, trying to make a system flexible enough to play multi sources seriously is a ton of work. Every source has it's own particular and unique recorded code and source dependent EQ. Because of this the purist has to completely reset his system to accommodate this different source signal every time we switch between sources. Another reason I choose to be a one source guy is, I don't like the sound of several components plugged into my input spaces, causing that squeezed sound. Tapes for example have a different EQing than Vinyl and Digital different from either of these, plus FM being even yet different. Trying to get one analog setup to automatically adjust to these different sources was a great attempt in the early days of receiver and preamp designing. Later came DSP, but the truth is, every source has it's own DNA and they really aren't meant to mimic each other, not really. This might also explain why I choose some of my componentry.

So with this in mind take a look at my current CD setup in the main listening room.

WHAT?




Yep, the last systems that have gotten so much praise, have gone from the CDP to the Tunable Crossover then to the Preamp, then to the Amp OR from the Crossover to the Integrated or Receiver.

Now, I could go the Splitter route.



That would mean the Rev6 would be playing full range. Or we could go to the Pre before the crossover, like below.



So MG, which is better?

All 3 setups tune to their own strengths and weaknesses and it depends on where I want to put my tuning focus on. You might think one would blow the others away, but that's not necessarily the case. For example, using the Crossover before the Preamp gives me a lot of flexibility as to turning the speakers into a 3way sound instead of a satellite
/sub sound. There are advantages going the other two routes as well.
