    Noise Canceling headphones

    Well this is a surprise. But yeah no active noise canceling headphones can touch the Bose qc15. if you EQ them they can sound pretty good as well. They don't play the loudest but are very comfortable.

    Corsair SP2500's died; now what?

    Thats a pretty nice box. Specs? Well plate amps come in flavors from 25 watts to 1000 on parts express and no need to hack up a power supply.

    Corsair SP2500's died; now what?

    Perhaps it was just the set i was listening to but the sp2500's sub wasn't very good. The woofer seemed to bottom out before it could get very low. But as i said that could have been the particular set i was listening to. That little onkyo shoud be good and paired with a subwoofer amp to power...

    Corsair SP2500's died; now what?

    Why not buy a 2.1 amp and wire all your speakers as passives to it? I have seen a few amps that are 2.1 Parts express and madisound have 2.1 plate amps and there are many 2.1 t amps. You will need a pair of crossovers as well due to the speakers being bi amped.

    My goggie chewed my left speaker wire on klipsch promedia 2.1

    That isnt a very good joke lol. Thats good to hear. Yeah i left out heatshrinking the wires after soldering or splicing.

    My goggie chewed my left speaker wire on klipsch promedia 2.1

    If there is enough wire left over you can just splice it via Soldering or butt connectors. If its not the control box wires it will only be 2 wires. Wait did you have your dog put down over it chewing your $100 dollar computer speakers? I guess its none of my business but.... Jeez.

    Molex undervolting trick - bad?

    Back with some of my older computers I had access to tons of 120mm by 38mm server fans that where loud loud loud and it was common practice to cut the molex connecters so i could run 5 volt. As for 7 volts i cant say. On a side note its good to see you upgraded your computer.

    What is a good audio interface and neutral headphone?

    The HM5's are about the most neutral headphone you can get. Head-fi has them billed as the neutral champ. And are currently $130 on amazon.

    What is a good audio interface and neutral headphone?

    If i wanted a neutral headphone i would look at the Brainwavz HM5 headphones. The DT headphones sound very good but they are not the most neutral headphones.

    Are M-Audio BX5 D2 a good choice for simple PC speakers?

    Also worth mentioning a T-amp will power external speakers the modi/magni stack is a dac and headphone amp and the Audioengine is a dac.

    Cerwin Vega XD3 2.0 $59.99 @ BB

    You have 480 watts RMS for your computer. Im very sure atarione's smsl amp that puts out 20 watts x2 is quite a bit less power than your setup. Anytime you have a speaker setup there is an amp.

    Wall-mounted stereo computer speakers [~150$ max]

    The microlabs may be your best bet. One of the very few sets with a remote control.

    Buy the energy pair and take whats left of the budget and sink it into a subwoofer.

    Carrying case for full-size headphones?

    I wouldn't worry about it to much, They are pretty rugged little guys with decent sound to boot. Ive had them for a year or so and as long as you are not trying to break them you wont. I cant help but feel the case will cost more than the headphones.

    2.1 BIY Help

    When you overdrive a amplifier it runs out of voltage. When you clip off the top of the wave form it becomes a square wave. When you look at a square wave with a oscilloscope the top and corresponding bottom of the wave are flat and are no longer alternating. They are DC current for a short...

    2.1 BIY Help

    Yes if the sensitivity is 89db it will produce 89db at 3 feet away. The speakers don't clip, the amplifier clips if it is being driven to hard. Clipping is the introduction of DC waves into the AC current being given to the speaker, This is bad because it heats the coil up very fast and the coil...

    2.1 BIY Help

    The subwoofers amplifier will not be powering the speakers. The inputs connect directly to the outputs on the subwoofer and simply tap a high level input from them to convert it to a low level. Some have a a filter on the output to filter out the lows the sub would be reproducing.

    Need Amplifier advice

    Just wanted to say Nenu makes some good points but doubling the power only yields a 3db increase. You have to have a 10db increase to sound twice as loud. And power is dynamic so a 300rms amplifier will not be putting out 300rms all the time only during loud peaks or very long sine waves. A...
