    Monolith 13" vs Hsu 15"?

    Thoughts on how these two ported subs stack up against each other? After factoring in shipping and extended warranty from Hsu, the price of these two subs is almost the same--especially if Monoprice has any kind of sale, which apparently is common whereas Hsu never does. Curious what you guys...

    How to do high level input right with a sub.

    I have the KEF LS50 metas and a KEF KC62 sub. I have noted the preference by some for high level sub input for the best performance - especially in music. I use a good DAC for the source and only play 2 channel music from Roon or JRiver. My Marantz is 11 channel Atmos capable and is...

    I've Been Deceived!

    Honestly, just venting a bit. I figured, that at the least, a bunch of audiophiles would be able to commiserate. I bought a Rythmik Audio LV12 off ebay, based on the review here of the similar L12 - the V stands for vented. The ad said, that it had "Great Sound" and was in used condition, but...

    Find my sub!

    I'm busy changing my setup a bit. The idea is to hide most of the nasty stuff. So mostly get rid of the cables and equipment and make it look clean. The idea was to use an Ikea BESTÅ enclosure and TV mount, hang it on the wall and hide everything inside. The middle section is used to house a...
