    Yamaha MSP5A's.

    I can now hear every one of my horrid deficiencies perfectly well. I WANT MY OLD, COULDN'T HEAR NOTHIN', SPEAKERS BACK! No, I don't.

    I even bought, don't you dare laugh, a set of Aurelex "MoPads" - every once in awhile I like to pay 30 bucks for a couple pieces of foam, I could have bought for 50 cents at K Mart, OK? It's the "hologram" logo on the front that got me..!


    They still need to come up a bit. Anyone have 6x8" pieces of plywood for 45 bucks each, with like the "Georgia Pacific" logo, in "hologram" form, that I could stick under the MoPads? I'll bite...

    The left speaker leans a bit to the left..? As I'm a conservative(Sort've/sometimes), this does offend me... These speakers are heavy, little devils......

    Yeah, no room for such "pretties"... They've got to sit behind a corner console and come out over it, like a foot or more. I am considering building something to work? For now, stupid plywood under the "Mo's"(Which takeup to much space, guess I'll cut 'em down with an electric knife?), will have to do...

    Hi ,

    i use pmc tb2 , krk k rock and ns10

    1 labgruppen amp and one sony hifi amp

    it's useless to put a powerfull system in a bad room

    better to have a good small system and to treat a bit the room with some panels

    5 Event 20/20bas and the 20/20 sub, Auratones witha Stewart amp, and the speakers in my Philips TV. I'm thinking of ditching the Events and switching to the JBL 6328s.

    Dynaudio BM6A (home)
    Yamaha MSP5A's W/MOPADS!!! (work)

    Looking for an OK somewhat cheap sub to go with the Dyn's (to impress the bands and chicks, not really for anything critical).
    Kev, in 100 words or less, how do I build a subwoofer? Thx :D

    seriously ... or was that rhetorical ?

    and I have to keep it below 100 words ... :roll:

    Genelec 1031's , E-MU PM5's and E-MU 10" sub, (4) JBL 4406's with (2) Crown PS-400 amps for surround.

    Reggie Well-Known Member

    Well, I would like to know, but I have a feeling my woodwerking skills would not suffice. And if it takes more than 100 words and a few pictures, I probably would be too chicken to try. heh heh

    A-Gaff: Any idea on the street price of that E-Mu sub? I can't even find the list. Guessing you got some kind of hook-up...

    Norberg Model 28's with either a Bryston 4B or Hafler 9505 amplifier are my mains.

    Genelec 1031's as secondary reference (rarely used) and location reference monitoring.

    I have had the E-MU PM5's for almost 4-weeks now and am quite happy with them. The sub is not yet mine. It is on loan from a friend that got it from E-MU to evaluate, but he had to go to a funeral so he has loaned it to me to give it a good work out while he is away. I mis-typed as it is a 12" sub not a 10". And although I have only had it now for a 6-days, I must say, it kicks some serious ass on it's own and fills in the missing gap of the PM5's perfectly. I have to give back after this weekend, but if it continues to perform as well as it has, I will get likely get one when they are shipping and not bother getting the Genelec Sub. (or at least I will wait and move it towards the bottom of the must have list) I'm not sure the street price. I expect it will be in the $500 range and know it will be way cheaper than the Genelec sub I was looking at. I'll now delegate the JBL's to upgrade my home stereo/TV and finally get some decent surround capability for the living room.
