Noise coming from subwoofers and centre channel
I had what seemed to be connectivity issues with my Pioneer Elite AV receiver and the Elite plasma.  Replacing the high quality HDMI cable with brand new modestly priced cable solved the problem. I don't think HDMI is very robust to begin with.  ... 
Maggies and subwoofer integration
@noamtasini  Which Velodyne model are you using?  
Noise coming from subwoofers and centre channel
@vampat  Your trouble shooting is in the pipe 5x5. Nice system.  
can subwoofers make things worse?
@epz As you can see the HiFi community disagrees on subwoofers, choice and implementation which can easily lead the worse. Start with manufacturers that offer a simply return policy and customer setup phone support.   When I put a $9K REL in my r... 
REL 12" Carbon vs JL Audio 12" Fathom
@james633  I can understand your persistence. Since the early 20teens the only worthy subwoofer innovations combined with functional build quality that didn't take their manufacture into the exotic cabinet centric five $ figures were Velodyne USA ... 
can subwoofers make things worse?
It's all about what you want. I believe the REL and the SVS offer easy to return trial periods. One is a sub-bass speaker and the other is a subwoofer. Get both of them at the same time and do your own side by side comparison. It's said they both... 
Little help with REL subwoofers, please?
@jastralfu      I've measured using REW and it's around -3db at 30HZ and -6db at 20HZ.  I am quite pleased with them.  As a past REL user I'd say even the manufacturer would find your measurement quite spectacular.  https://rel.net/shop/powere... 
Little help with REL subwoofers, please?
@northman  I hope you were able to return that $3K crossover for the $2K subwoofer. For about the same outlay the F110 would have been the way to go. Equalization is what would have allowed you to easily enjoy that Organ pedal and the Cathedral r...

@northman      Which model JL Audio subwoofer did you use and how did you determine its exact position in your room?   
Musical subwoofer under $2000
@mofojo   Nice to hear a realistic direct experience. I had an early version F113 in the house. When used with the early Velodyne DD Optimization the smaller F113 was surprisingly every bit as potent as the larger DD-18. At the time both manufac... 
Musical subwoofer under $2000
"@kennyc  Usually "musical" means enjoying the music as a whole but can also be at the expense of detail and accuracy. What you are looking for is an "articulate" subwoofer where the bottom notes sound like real instruments and not a boomy mess."... 
Musical subwoofer under $2000
To better understand what you mean by a "musical" low frequency producer. Imagine you had two units at your home for audition individually during the same session. They are both properly positioned in your spacious room and adjusted to a point we... 
Do you adjust your subwoofer
Often.     My subs came with a remote that controls all the subs Optimization parameters and its six customizable presets..  Slight volume adjustment are used mostly. Possibly one or two presets which embellish some aspects of the recordings low ... 
Velodyne sub missing remote
@mofojo  I forgot to mention. Sometime prior to the Optimum's release the company was becoming more aware of the importance of room integration and detailed placement experimentation as suggested in the manuals Placement section on page 2 prior t...
