The Northern area might have easier access to SVS soon especially those in Perak from early Oct onwards.

Fingers crossed.

Hello all. Need help from you guys.

I think a power surge has busted my PC12-plus amp. Anyway to verify for certain that it is the amp that is kaputt?

If it is, can I get a replacement amp from you HTKAKI?

Will check the price for you. Very likely the power surge has busted the amp.

For those who pre-ordered SVS, shipment is on schedule thumbup.gif

to speed things up once you get them can try this. originally posted in an off-topic thread over at avsforum DIY section.
QUOTE(imagic)
For some time I've used this loop to speed the break-in of my subs. It is two different bass notes overlapping, in the very lowest octaves. The advantage is that it works out your speakers without tiring out your amp the way sine waves do. It's nauseating so I run it when I'm out of the house. It's also a fine way to check for air leaks and rattles and otherwise study the performance of your drivers with an ultra low, complex rumble. Two files, depending on your playback capabilities:
subwoofer break-in loop 24/96: https://soundcloud.com/psychedelicious/sub-break-in/download
subwoofer break-in loop 16/44: https://soundcloud.com/psychedelicious/sub-break-in/download

currently the best way to accelerate breaking-in the drivers that i've came across. start with a low gain and turn the volume up until the ceiling can't take it. laugh.gif
it won't stress the amps as much as sine sweeps do. and much faster result compared to looping bass drums or sine signal. do take a peek at the drivers movement while running them. biggrin.gif

Hahaha. Yeah after we went and auditioned at bro klimal's place for 1 of the pc12 my dad got hooked with the lfe, that on the way back and the next day he is very interested to get 1 for him too smile.gif So the following day we confirmed with bro klimal to get the 2nd unit. My dad was very impressed with the dune he saw at bro klimals place and he got himself a dune max the next day too. Hahaha. The power of poisoning.

The pc12 is great, after setting up at my place the movie experience is so different. The lfe gives the feel that ur in the scene. Really love it

But my set up is just by hearing, so i dont know how many db alk the speaker are set. Reallt need to get a radioshack meter. Another question, how wkuld i know if i need bass trap? My room is 10X12. the floor and all 4 walls are carpeted. except the ceiling has bout 2 ft plaster running the whole room where the middle portion is filled with star light. I realky do not know how much of a bass trap would i need.

Ill try to post some pics later.

Thank you

Is there any acoustic problem with your room such as ringing, boomy bass, slapping echo, etc?

What avr that you have? Normally, those room calibration s/w does not have big variance. Unless, you want it to be perfect at 75dB.

I'm not sure if have any of that. Still new at this. Probably I have a boomy bass. But I have the feeling that the HF such as glass breaking is not there. Is it because it's absorbed by the carpets or just lousy mains?

My setup:
Source: Pana BD45
Projector: Mitsu HC4000
Screen: Unic 92" Grey Screen
AVR: Onkyo 608
Front Mains: Pyramid Gold Series 4 ohms Floorstanding (unheard brand. Very old speaker bout 17 years old)
Center: lotte (same as above very old)
Surround: (same as above unheard n very old)
Sub: SVS PC12-NSD

After running 2eq the Dover set by it is front 40hz center 40hz and surround 60hz. It seems very low.

I would like to know if I would like to set up do we need to set 0db on the avr volume level first then run audessey and set all the speakers to 75db using RadioShack sound level meter using the test tone of the avr itself? Is this test tone the pink noise test tone?

How do you tune how low the sub freq can go? Is it possible with the pc12-NSD?

Really wished some sifu could come over and identify any prob and solution. smile.gif

Thank you

You should invest in decent loudspeakers for all channels. smile.gif

Im located in Shah Alam. Near Proton's Factory.

Yeah, bro klimal's tri sub setup was already very impressive.


I tried increasing the xover for the fronts to 80hz and it seems the mid bass is lacking. once it down to 40hz then it seems better. the pc12 goes very low. Maybe need another sealed sub to get the mid bass punch.
