post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
having problems getting it to sound optimal... (sub-100 ht)

1. i cant move my chair in my desk anymore... sub is too big
2. desk rattles
3. i cant for the LIFE of me find 60hz on the crossover, my speakers are the tannoy 501a and go to 60-30000hz, is 60hz a good crossover or 65?
4. can someone point out to me where 60 hz is on the crossover knob? its driving me INSANE
5. should i put it behind me or beside my chair (outlet only goes that far) for optimal sound?


thanks D:

You have to do some measuring under your desk before you buy a subwoofer. Im going to be getting a SUB80 to replace my SUB100 so I can sit it under the side of my desk.

It literally says "FREQ" on the back of the sub. Each tick is 17.5hz and it starts at 40hz. You will need to do some experimentation to see where you should set your crossover. I have mine set at 80hz. I dont know where your 501a cuts off.

yeah beefy systems are where its at hehe. Im actually using two massive 800W Wharfedale Pro EVP-S15's with a bit of wooden table top on them as a table and a 1.9KW Numark Dimension 4 amp to power em. With 15" cones those little badboys negate the need for a separate sub and gives me plenty of leg room between em hehe.

this was EXACTLY what i was looking for
my tannyos are rated down to 60hz, so i should get it about 10hz about that so there sound doesnt fade 60-70hz?

There not as big as you think i have a pair of floor monitors deferent drivers same configuration a 15 and a 2in horn. In most situations this is small lol add a single powered 18 a side and you have a good bar or other small room system. My trx cabs are 2 15s and a 2in horn. Are you running those bi amped or passive? I like the JBLs in the background (JBL being my favorite brand). Looks like you've got some gear there truss and par cans. Were are you out of? Its nice to see a new face on OCN that has experience in PA equipment.

Hi i'm in UK. Yeah I love my PA equipment. Normal home systems just never gave me the power I needed so I bought a PA system and never looked back. My ideal level is getting organ damage from excessivly high amounts of bass like I would at a rave hehe.
