Hi there,

The HIW-1's do not have an enclosure, so their sound and performance is greatly influenced by the wall you put them on. They do have the same drivers as the HB-1 Mk2's. It terms of SQ, it...

I would just stick with Q0.7. The way I go about it is adjust the Q first, EQ switch second, then port settings third. What you can do is play the 80 Hz test tone and switch between 0 and 180....

Unfortunately, we're not going to be able to make our way out to Capital Audiofest this year. I know we've been approached by a rep, but we're locked in for next year at AXPONA again.

Hi there!

Basically, we designed the CCB-8's with two ports open in mind, so I would start there. If you feel that the speakers are sounding a bit boomy, you can try sealing one port, then both...

As long as the RCA cable is shielded, it should work well. Many of the people that use our subs use Monoprice/Mediabridge/etc cables and they work quite well. You don't need to go out and get...

My personal opinion, and Dr. Hsu agrees, is that generally a single VTF-3 Mk5 HP should work quite well in that room since you are up against the back wall. However, if you're really trying to make...

It really depends on your preferences. If you listen to moderate levels, I would say one VTF-2 Mk5 is a good start.

No worries. I figured it was the center of the sofa. The left corner is also worth a try. Try both positions.

If the system is being used for strictly 2.1 channel music, then the VTF-1 Mk3 should be OK if you tend to listen to moderate levels. If you tend to like a lot of bass, or listen to louder output...

If you're able to place the HB-1 vertically and keep the tweeter around ear height, using the HB-1 Mk2 as a center should work quite well. Otherwise, I would just go with the HC-1 Mk2 as the center...

Usually when there is a b-stock, that means the sub has a minor blemish. It could be light surface scratches/markings/etc. Unfortunately, the sub sold almost immediately as soon as we put it up.
