Re: Sound Proofing my Home Theater Room

Well I like the Lear Jet analogy. Unfortunately, due to duct work in the ceiling, I can't put the new ceiling joists between the old ones. The new joists are below the old ones and are 2x6s to handle the weight. Put in a layer of 3/4 plywood, 3/4 inch rubber, and 5/8 inch drywall. R22 insulation in ...

Sound Proofing my Home Theater Room

So, I built the 36 inch wide THT sub, and a couple of TLAH speakers. The system blew my mind! So awesome! Then I moved to a house with no insulation in the interior walls, and hard wood floors. I set my system up in the basement. And now I shake the whole house when I watch a movie or listen to musi...

Re: 3" SLA build options

These speakers would be a huge step up from the typical PC 2.1 systems. My plan is to power the Tuba 18 with a small plate amp that has active equalizer and crossover capabilities, the Dayton Audio SPA250DSP 250W Subwoofer Plate Amplifier with DSP, https://tinyurl.com/y5mt574p. I'll power the speake...

Re: 3" SLA build options

Sorry to resurrect this old thread but I just had to ask, how do you guys like the 4 x 3" SLA speakers in the bedroom? I have 2 TLAH's with a 36" THTLP for my main sound system and love it. Want to build something small for my room. I have a Tuba 18 which I think would pair well with the little 4 x ...

Re: Hello From Touchet WA

As for your driver, place a vacuum nozzle (turned off) over the dent. Then quickly turn it on and off a few times to pop it out. You could send it back but the damage on a sub is mostly cosmetic. I tried that this evening with a shop vac and unfortunately it didn't pop out. I also tried denting in ...

Re: Hello From Touchet WA

So the Tang Band 8 inch driver arrived today. Eagerly opened it up to see what it looks like. Here it is. https://photos.app.goo.gl/Q0EU4EbwXVREpfRO2 Notice the dent in the cover on the cone... is that a cause for concern? Any way to get it to pop back out? Should I send it back and get a new one? O...

Re: Hello From Touchet WA

Nice. The myth of wave propagation. Well now I at least have a name for it. I never realized that punchy sound was from high level distortion of the speaker cone. But it does make sense! I was thinking along the lines of how quickly the system has to react to an impulse and if the transient response...

Hello From Touchet WA

I'm new to the speaker building world. I have purchased a few books on speaker design and building, and learned a bit about designing and building sealed boxes, ported boxes, boxes with passive radiators, transmission line speakers. Surprisingly the books did not discuss horns. Well, I have a woofer...
