    Martin Logan 13A's and a subwoofer pairing question.

    Always good thing to do is do a crosscheck vie REW, you have UMIK, so this should be no extra cost for you. Especially in bass region - it all sounds nice and good, but REW can identify issued that are still there, and you can target them and bring it to another level. I also you use DRC...

    Martin Logan 13A's and a subwoofer pairing question.

    Proper set-up, placement and properly applied DRC is in most of the cases the real difference between 2 setups. Not Ported vs Sealed [if you are in the same quality ballpark] @ttocs I also use MiniDsp/MSO as a simulation tool and then punch in the gains/delays/PEQ into the AVP manually, one...

    Martin Logan 13A's and a subwoofer pairing question.

    sorry, this is me not being clear - this is an option in my AV processor, you can route bass signal to whatever speaker you choose, does not have to be just subwoofer. And I am using my 13A as the fronts so instead of doing crossover and sending everything below 80Hz to SW, I have chosen to send...

    Martin Logan 13A's and a subwoofer pairing question.

    This is my set-up [not 100% precise] but approx. Distance of Fronts is approx 2.4m, 1.2m from rear wall, speaker to MLP 2.8m and MLP from back wall 1.5m. Subs randomly scattered, based on REW + bit of meaurement. Bass secton DRC'd fully by MSO results punched into Room Optimizer [1x1600, 2x1100...

    Yes, it is, my audiophile life has 2 periods - before and after REW. [and of course before and after ML]

    I have one sub [1100] behind my sofa and I think it makes nice bass envelope around me. It is dialed 6dB lower than the rest of them. it has opposite phase as front subs and it smoothes the overall response. It was actually outcome of REW sub simulation tool to place it there

    Martin Logan 13A's and a subwoofer pairing question.

    I have 7.4.4 setup currently. For movies as Full Range [Large] and I also route Bass from Center to Fronts [gives very special sensation of very large center speaker] For Stereo - I do Xover at 50Hz and play as 2.4 [this is room specific as I have deep null on combined stereo between 35-40Hz in...

    Martin Logan 13A's and a subwoofer pairing question.

    There are lot of really good subwoofers out there, it seems to be mature technology and you if you go for technically competent sub, you can not do wrong. ML is one of those companies, that produce really good subs, but also other brands mentioned are OK. I personally prefer to stick with sealed...

    Impressions Setup - Flashlight Technique

    My life hack for toe-in - I use 2 stickers - one in front was used to have exact match to 1/3 distance [so aligning with flaslight] Now I find much ore useful to align sticker on the back with panel side - if I have stickers on both speakers in the same distance visually, I know I am doing it...

    Just another new member thread - couple of electrostats, etc

    Same here - approx. 7dB lower gain than front subs English not my first language - "architectural panels" might get it wrong but it goes like this lowest row = 2 fabric square modules [each had diff. color - fixed and replaced] - 2x T50 - 50Hz Tuned membrane bass traps [custom tuning] above...

    I need a cheap temporary power amp, any recommendations?

    Look at something with HYPEX NC500 module. https://www.audiophonics.fr/en/power-amplifier/audiophonics-lpa-s500nc-amplificateur-stereo-class-d-ncore-2x500w-4-ohm-p-15016.html

    Just another new member thread - couple of electrostats, etc

    Final Treatments and 3rd sub added. Almost good ;-) Bit of tidying of cables etc. For those interested about treatments - all from GIK Acoustics: Front Wall: Corners 4x TriTrap with Scatter Plate, Behind speakers 4in absorber with scatter plate with Air Gap, Tuned membrane bass trap for...

    Use of Rear Feet to Adjust Tilt

    I got the best results going "all-in" and having panels in vertical position. Probably all depends on relative height of your listening position vs panels. My sofa is quite low, ears being at around 90 cm listening distance 2.7m

    Just another new member thread - couple of electrostats, etc

    I have thrown some money also on the looks - rear wall - all of the panels have incorporated diffusion [either visible or hidden beneath fabric] Those rectangle things behind the LP are tuned membrane absorbers - top2 for 40Hz, lower 2 for 60Hz and front side - black hole ;-) - one Dynamo...
