What kind of insulation should I add if needed to the sub to make it sounds better?

Thanks.
polly fill will work great, it is cheap, and available at almost any fabric store. Spraying the inside walls with rubberized undercoat would not be a bad idea while you are inside. "available at the local auto parts store.

I know this thread is super old but you seem to be a really knowledgeable guy about this stuff. I left my Z-5500 on +11 volume for about 3 hours and blew the subwoofer completely (too busy dancing with girls). I need to replace it now and I can't find any guides online about how to do that. I am thinking about getting one of these: http://cgi.ebay.com/LOGITECH-Z5500-Z...item19b7384145
and just swapping them out. Is it as easy as that?

Does it have to be a Logitech brand sub? I would imagine you get a better sub in there locally.

I want to get some hi pass filters into my satellites. Every time the bass hit with my music hard, I can some times hear the pops on my left front one. Which frequency bass blockers can I get to best suite these satellites?

Thanks,

They are called caps, and are available at any radio shack. You will need to pick the frequency that you want to cut off the speakers at, and match them to the cap. Do keep in mind a passive cap in line will limit current to the speaker, and put a slightly different load on the amp. Some amps can not play when a cap is in line.

If it's not the z-5500 sub the control pod will be useless which is honestly one of the most useful features of the entire system. I don't think you can use the control pod on any other serial port than the one on the sub and also, I read about a member on here who was trying to use the entire system without a control center and it makes controlling the volume annoying since it automatically places all 6 channels at 100% independently of windows volume so you have to adjust it accordingly and don't have the extra versatility of the control pod.

to the guy who blew his sub: honestly, you might as well just replace the sub with the same thing, it's freaking amazing as it is and you'll get to retain all of the features for your purchase...no need to put in a freakin cinemark powered sub in your room. you could even try telling logitech what happened and see if they will honor the warranty.

Any 10" 8 ohm sub that can do 200W~ would work great in the logitech box as a replacement. He needs just the sub (speaker) not the amp or anything else replaced. It would be as easy as taking the amp section off and unscrewing the old sub/screwing in the new. Heck, find an 8 rated for a bit more power, and I can pretty much guarantee it won't blow as long as you make sure you don't hit distortion at +11 volume...

Well, not quite. The box is designed for a specific driver, and to a large degree, the power handling of the driver is determined by the box it is in. Different drivers, all rated 200w RMS at 8 ohms, will not only all perform differently based on their individual characteristics, but could do anything from sound like garbage to tear themselves apart.

Hello!
I just opened up my z5500 console and i was wondering if there are some caps that can be changed for a better sound. I am planing to change the op amps anyway with some LM4562MA. Here are some pictures
The first one - the opamps 6 of them R45801(I) i cant say the last letter is 1 or i, anyway :http://www.alldatasheet.com/datashe.../TI/R4580I.html
The second one the entire back side pcb where all the key components are (DSP -- CS 494003-CQZ, DAC-- CS 5351 KZZ, CS42526-- i don't know what this is..)
The third one detail of the DACs.
You can also see the caps in the console. Does it worth replacing some of them?
I have more pictures taken if you want some more just say so.
Thanks

Semtex1301, which passive components we will have to replace when we will put there LM4562MA?
