    HI BD. I was just wondering would i be wasting my time getting a spl meter if i have audussey multieq xt. i have monitor a's gx 100 which carry nice bass, ive connected my hi level rel cable to the speaker terminals on the amp also hooked up is the single cable to the lfe on the back of the sub. my denon amp is put on to large speakers and ive put the sub to NO. iVE ran audussey before with crossver at 40 and disabled the one on the back of the sub. But ive found that having it the first way sounds so much lower and nicer. Though it sounds nice to my ears, is there a better way . Just want quality not quantity. Also my xo on the back of the sub is between 60 and 80, since the xo in the amp is now full range. Is this correct. thankyou in advance. I love bass.

    hi BD how are you. i was just wondering regarding CALIBRATING speakers and sub. if i have audussey multieq xt would i be wasting my time getting a spl meter. Also i have got the antimode 8033c for the sub but it sounded terrible. Do you have any suggestions on a really good eq that really makes a difference. thankyou.

    Such converters exist. Go to the end of post #1 in the following thread. You will find links and information about balanced/unbalanced connection.

    Hey BD,
    Im looking to make a small upgrade & possibly purchasing either Emotiva XPA-5 or XPA-3,everyone seems to say Emotiva are best bang for the buck. My question to you is since these amps have the option of using the balanced inputs, how can i connect it to my receiver that doesnt have balanced inputs, is there a converter of some kind and what is the benefit of using balanced inputs if im able to? Also, you being a master in this field would you recommend trying this or just sticking with using the unbalanced inputs? Any help would be greatly appriciated.

    thanks again

    My Def Tech towers are BP2000 and they do not have a port. Call Definitive Technology and ask them. Maybe, they can help you.

    I recently got a full set of two amp and bass drivers of the bp2000 TL towers.Why? Well. I want to make a set of two woofers for home theater using independent cabinets.

    My only problem at this point that is holding me back is that ....I don't have the net internal enclosure volume info on this unit.

    I have the bp2000TL.

    Also did noticed the back of the bp2000TL and their version looks bass reflex. I do not have the vent port info neither.

    Is there is any way you can help me out on these 2 issues?

    By doing will allow me to have two woofers in my living room at very low cost . I have someone ready to do the cabinet construction.But ..I need the info.

    Thanks once again.

    I do not know the net volume. There is really very limited space in there for the 15" woofer. That is why only a few woofers fit there. The depth is only 8".

    The amplifier of the BP2000 only powers the 15" woofers. However, there are binding posts there that are connected to the crossovers for the midrange and tweeters. If you remove the amplifier, you will have a hard time figuring out how to connect the receiver to the midrange and tweeter.

    If you want to build a subwoofer, use a plate amplifier from Parts Express or buy a used or new external amplifier. If the amplifier is stereo, you can bridge it into a single channel amplifier.

    A riser can benefit a subwoofer's performance. A riser basically deals with vertical axial modes in the room. Go to the Subwoofer section of the forum and read posts #2 and #3 of the DIY Riser thread. It has a sticky.

    Hey Big Daddy,
    I'm new to the forum and I'm just curious about guys using platforms for their subs
    Does this improve anything or is it more for reducing vibrations in the house?
    I've got a pb12 nsd/2 and a Velodyne ct-150.
    Thanks in advance for any comments or advice you may have for me.

    Hey!!! that was an amazing piece of work you did with your def tech bp2000.

    I was wondering if you may know the exact internal net volume only on the 15" woofer.

    I am also very curious if I can only use the amplification section of to build an independent 15" woofer.

    Do you know by any chance if the amplifier is also connected to the mid range and tweeters? if so...can I just use the amp and woofer section to build a cinema woofer?

    thanks in advance.
