Got Output?? Current dorm setup...

Postby ballstothewall » Tue Aug 22, 2006 8:48 pm

These are crappy quick snapshots of them in their current state.

Pay no mind to the state of the dorm room, were still rearranging it and changing crap up.

This setup just plain murders the low end, sometimes it is just a pain in the *** cause everying rattles around. It sounds very "real" and sounds just plain good to me atleast, I'm realllllly pleased for building these things for under 500 bucks, just insane. *I think its under 500 bucks, never formally added it all up*

As far as I know, there aren't many audio nuts around here, and the ones that I know I'm trying to get them over here to give me their opinion on them. Everyones opinion so far is that they are awsome, but other than these the best thing they have heard is a Bose radio. Very good topend also, just all aroudn quality sound, does movies very well too.

They are a hair under 3 cubes, double braces per tower, 1" polyfill along the interior, 40hz tune, and dip down stupidly low, just crazy for no sub.

damn - how long have you been running that? any complaints yet? I can imagine in a dorm that those things would freakin rock.

And yea - you're lucky your school lets you built lofts/stands for your beds like that. we weren't allowed. I got stuck bunking our two beds, and then putting a futon where the one used to be.

Why did you raise the floor 18" throughout half the room?

Those are some stupid *** underbed storage things that come with the room and can't leave, so we put plywood on top of them and dealt with it, they are soon to be moving around also. The room is an everchanging project...



Oh and on the topic of noise complaints, I've been running them since last thursday (17th) and I have yet to get a formal complaint, they don't get blasted except when I'm showing them off. Although the people under us didn't really like Def Leppard "Pour some sugar on me" rocked at absurd volumes one night though...:cwm10:

That's like my buddy who ran his full JBL HT (bookshelfs and center channel) with an HSU 12" sub (cant remember model).

It was fun to kill everyone else in Halo with full surround + sub.

And, btw, It should be the dayton DC28 silk dome's and 4 RS150's per side. Or they're *maybe* rs180's, but I dont think they're large enough.

thought those were Dayton Ref. 7's (I've got 8's and 6's in my fronts).

and I thought you were in Manhattan. at least that was my guess based on the crappy dorm rooms. (/jab)
