Hi all, love the electrostatic sound. I'm here to discuss how sweet these can sound. And fix my blown woofers, long story regarding an oscillating amp. Here is the replacement woofer thread if you have any suggestions.
Not sure what happened last year, but now that the site has migrated, maybe you could post your story and results to a new thread, it would be very helpful to others. I would sure love to hear what you did and how it came out.Well, I was going to post the results of the woofer replacement in the thread linked in post #1, but it has disappeared!
Mods, what happened to my thread? I'm unsure about spending the time to post pictures, experiences and otherwise participate if threads disappear or are deleted.
Thanks for updating the thread, much appreciated.It is my opinion the Dayton driver sounds better, with tighter more controlled response at the very low end of the range. Probably the larger vented pole piece helps.
Yes, Questz do pretty well as full-range speakers IMHO, although a more elaborate system with subs, etc, would no doubt improve the lows especially for home theater.I gather you run your Quest full range, as I don't see a sub listed in your list. In which case the Dayton DCS305-4 looks good, and since it's spec'd for 25 to 200Hz, that works well with the stock crossover.
I set the volume for the fronts in the ASUS mixer tab to 100%, then reduced the gain of the rears to match the sound pressure levels. Before I had both front and rear less than 100%.Hi Lifespeed, can you explain this? I'm using the same card.
Never would I have guessed 100% was gain. While ASUS makes decent hardware, their software and documentation could be better.Ah, I see. The correct setting is the default of 76 for all channels. Anything above 76 increases the gain and can result in dynamic range compression. See here:
