Pete's (HexiBase) idea of HT.

Postby mr tibbs » Wed Oct 18, 2006 1:47 pm

So, what do you guys think of this?

Check out how much power he is running!!:cwm16: I think I'm going to have to have him design me some HT boxes. I have allready built 2 of his designs for my cars and have never been let down. Man this guy knows his stuff!:cwm29:

don't know the guy...but i've read his website and watched him online...
a very creative young man...
On his sub he should have used a roundover bit or sanded the hell out of his internals...but overal........it looks like he'll just get better and better as time goes on....

i'm sure he isn't reading this but "Well done anyway... keep up the good work".

He likes them little Tea amps..........they are quite nice sounding little amps for what they are and what they cost.

I bought one and put it in a metal case, upgraded the RCA jacks, and yanked that noisy cheap 50K pot. I then fed it with a 100K stepped attenuator, that really helped.

I used a nice wal-wart, but it was a little shy on current. 2000 milliamps would be nicer than the 1300 I was using. I used just a plain car battery once.......that was about sickening...

Using different types of AA batteries never really made much difference, I seemed to favor the Wal-wart.

The bass was ok, a little thin from probably lack of current. The top-end was ok, it seemed extended, but not really. It had a warm, but yet still cold kind of sound, and seemed processed. I remember it did well with electronica type music.

I've listened to the T-amp and a DIY 6 WPC 2A3 SET amplifier with old Klipsch Cornwalls.
Face it, there ain't no comparsion.

I'll stick with a DHT with AC.

But it's a 30 dollar toy amp, but a damn good sounding 30 dollar toy amp. And it does come close to the sound of most tubes, I guess.....

Five of these for HT.....

The current Stereophile magazine has a review of the upgraded version of the Sonic T-Amp. (No kidding) :)

That's what I was thinking. Seems like an awful lot of woodworking to skimp on the fine details. :meh:

He's a better designer than builder. He just moved not too long ago and is working on building a mighty fine workshop. Trust me, this guy is worth keeping an eye on. Just as soon as I move into a house (maybe sooner), I'm having him design my entire sound system. I absolutley love his designs!!!:cwm29:

i see the phrase HT.....


but i don't see a home theatre..... :) i see two full range speakers....and a sub....
Here in death's dominion
Where even shadows die
I am the one almighty
You will cry my name
And when you seek forgiveness
You will see there is no god
And for all eternity
You will cry my name
