I have read many a thread referring to SPLs in excess of 110 db.
A question I have is why would any desire to listen to music at that level?
This may be worth a read:
2.4-2.5...Not too bad
Very interesting information. So, how difficult is it to measure a speakers impedance? What sort of equipment is needed? Id love to make some measurements of my speakers. Granted impedances are...
Yup, I'd say you did well. I'm not trying to say Onkyo is the best choice out there for $500, but their amplifiers seem to generate some decent current which is one of the reasons I chose it. And it...
Another link in suuport of Onyko power:
It is about the TX-DS 484 rated at 55w/c 8-ohms. It actually rated at 69.1(8-ohms) under the test...
Uh... that would be 4 ohms. :rolleyes:
I have to step in and give another vote for Onkyo. I own a TX-SR600, and it is rated at 80w/c x6 (6.1), and it is an honest 80. I upgraded it from an older Pioneer 100w/c DPLII and can say that it...
Joe Satriani-Strange Beauitiful Music. Very good!
Nice setup! I have a similar one. RT7s are my mains with CSi 30 center and PSW650 sub. I also have a TX-SR600, and love it, and the setup has really been enjoyable to listen to. For the price it is...
That thing would probably blow the roof off of my house...:p
Sad thing is the post was clearly meant to piss you SVS fans off. And you are all letting it get to you. Undoubtedly SVS makes a stellar product, but why let this childish thread go on? Is audio...
Actually, good receivers will have separate transformers with one being dedicated to amplification of the speakers and the other smaller one being dedicated to powering the digital and preamp...
When is a speaker an audiophile speaker? When the speaker talks about audiophiles.... :D
But really, my feeling at the time I posted the question was that to call a speaker an audiophile speaker...
When does a speaker become an audiophile speaker? Is it price, bi-wire/bi-ampability, frequency response, manufacturer, semantics? Just wondering.
Absolutely! No offense taken. It's all in fun...just thinking of interesting ways to measure spl. :) .
Just wanted to get some opinions on the these three A/V receivers. If you could by one which one would it be and why?
B&K AVR 507
Pioneer Elite VSX-49TXi
These seem to be the...
Well, I'll say that it seemed to be a legitimate measure based on some others made in the PWC thread...The stated critera were met. :)
However, you are the Judge. :(
Wow! That is some sound pressure.
I will have to see how high the little 650 will go some time when the wife and kids are absent. At 111db it felt like the whole house was jumping when the ring...
I decided to go ahead and attempt to enter the PWC. As I understand, using the LOTR ring drop sequence, one must be able to reach 110db from at least 10ft as measured with RadioShack...
Yeah, I'd have put EVH much higher and included Joe Satriani....That man really rocks. Not so sure Hendrix is number one any more. Steve Vai... Stevie Ray should have at least been 3
Thanks for the offer to join the PWC, but I doubt the PSW650 can produce the level required. The highest db I have measured with it is about 108 db with some BassConnection stuff. It did...
This is my first post in this forum, but I have been following the discussions on low frequency sub response for some time. I figured since I have a copy of the forementioned movie that...
Just have to say the RT-7 is one fine speaker. I have owned a pair for about five years. I would say they are on par with speakers of much higher price. Paid 450 bucks new for them. Still thump...
