haha, ok you got me. actually, i need better left/right speakers. my bx5a's can not keep up with my sub and i KNOW they are lying about their THD specs. there is NO WAY these things only have 0.5% distortion at 90db with their maxxed volume. the amplification may be .5% distortion, but the woofers, i doubt it.

I'm thinking of upgrading to energy RC 50's, or some klipsch speakers. i like the idea of klipsch because they are extremely efficient and will match up to my sub hopefully. i may upgrade my velodyne ULD 18 driver to a TC sounds LMS ultra 18 inch DVC driver, then upgrade my amp later. that's down the road though.

which do you think would sound better with my sub? the klipsch WF 35, or the energy RC 50?

although, what's the point of even upgrading to a sub driver that pushes 135db at 20 htz when the RC50 are 94 db, the klipsch are about 96db. my sub does 104db with .5% distortion and can push over 120 db under 3%. if i can get it to stop popping, is there even a point in upgrading? i think i need to look at my amp before i look at my driver, it pops out when i move the servo cord. THAT being said, i'm willing to just delete the servo system and use pure class b amplification. does anyone know how to trick a Velodyne ULD series II power servo controller to think there's no servo circuit and just power the voice coil of the woofer like any other amplifier? after doing that, I'll see if i'm overdriving my current woofer, if so, THEN I'll upgrade to the LMS ultra which would be impossible to overdrive with that amp.

FYI, I'm trying to learn more than push THD numbers in peoples faces. there's not many places in which i can just learn that in depth about audio. if I went into a bose store and started talking like that, the salesmen would look at me like I'm speaking greek. My post will end up getting reported as trolling and all will not be well, but meh.

edit:



wasn't kidding about the moldy coaster, lol.

You must really want to go deaf or something. SPL is usually rated at 1W at 1m away. It looks like your speakers are closer than that. All you really need is to be able to hit 100dB or so at listening position. That should be more than enough since much louder than that can start to hurt your hearing after not too long. BTW THD isn't everything. Harmonic distortion isn't some fixed amount across the spectrum, lots of stuff contributes and harmonic distortion changes with frequency.

TBH if I were in your shoes I'd stick with what you've got for now. If you want something to upgrade work on sound treatment for your room. Speaker positioning and sound treatment are way more important than most people realize. Just from looking at pics in the speaker club (where this post really belongs ) most people don't have their speakers positioned very well (which is hard to do at a computer, especially with bigger speakers). Positioning is critical. Even if your speakers freq. response is measured as flat as a ruler, in a room they can end up with all sorts of problems (plus you can get distortion from stuff rattling in your room)

I'd advise you to move your right channel. The speakers should be equal distances away from you at the same angle. Maybe you should look into getting something like to isolate them from the desk. Either that or get them stands, the tweeters should be at ear level. The speakers ideally should be off the desk to prevent reflections.

You have hardwood floors and bare walls in a small room. That's screaming for a disaster. Is there anything on the ceiling, or is it flat? Get some sound absorbing panels and some bass traps or something. Maybe a thick rug I hate to say it.

My speakers are in my room right now. Barely anything on the walls, flat ceiling, hardwood floor (my room is bigger though). Speakers aren't centered in the room. Honestly, they don't sound too great in there. I don't use them too much though. They sound easily twice as good out where my computer is. I've put them out there, centered relative to where I sit, about four feet away is ideal for them. The room my computer is at is carpeted and has acoustic treated ceiling (the cottage cheese stuff). It's bigger than my bedroom and there's other couches and stuff in the room. In my room they sound kind of boomy. My room echoes too much. But I like it looking clean and I don't use the speakers much, so I'm not about to cover the walls with foam and cover the nice hardwood with a rug .

*Edit*
. Your coaster disappoints me. I was hoping for huge chunks of mold. Something really pathetic and disgusting. I am truly disappointed in you .

Isn't that CPU a bit of a bottleneck for that 6970?
