You need some damping in that room, there, dude. Big time.

Oh. I see, the subject has been covered....

Also, do yourself a BIG favor.

Buy some sort of damping material, (like Gooeys, maybe!) and cut them up (ask me how) and put a bit between each fin. Every second fin, so they are damped against each other. There WILL be a -serious- reduction in HF hash coming from the system. It tends to be quite equivalent, in terms of character of 'noticability' of being like a major upgrade for the clocking system of a CD player.

Damping is important, but works best if you take care of everything in that area of 'issue'. Best bet? Take the source and power/pre, right out of the playback room.

I have developed a habit of cutting holes in walls and running the speaker cables through the hole, or pre-amp cables through the hole. I get the pre and source out of the room, at the very least.

Really? Does removing such items from the room actually make a difference?

Can you provide me with the reasons/proof?

U1, I absolutely Love the look of your equipment rack. Is it DIY or purchased?

Relax: Thank you. This is not a diy rack. The company is Swedish and called Solid Tech, this model is called Rack of silence. I think it is available in the US and the price in Sweden converted to dollars would be somewere in the region of 1500-1800$. The rack is very good and i recommend that you check it out.

Try to put the rack in a naturally quiet part of the room (use a SPL meter), to minimise feedback. Between the speakers is ok because you minimise the acoustic feedback path and can have short speaker cables (or interconnects for daft big power amps next to speakers!).

If I designed a rack, I'd call it 'What a rack!'.

Hi out there.

This is my Spendor System with BC1 mk3 (one of the last from 1996):

Click the image to open in full size.

Racks, stands and both subwoofers are DIY. Pre-amp: T&A P 1200, amplifier: AB International Precedent Series 400. Subwoofer mid: 2 x Visaton AL 170 with Thomessen 1.6. Subwoofer low: Next AL 38 (mms 300 gramms ) with Inosic RAS 300.

After having finishing the Spendor system, I began to build speakers. This is my first, self-planned DIY-speaker system:

Vifa XT 25 with 8'' Vifa paper cone - still on the way with measuring and listening tests.

Hope to learn a lot here. Greetz!

Wow, impressive looking setup! Very tidy work. Do you use both subs together then? You imply they each cover a certain range...
