    I don’t have too much experience with the variations of Audyssey, I know customers report they like being able to make more specific tweaks with the higher line.

    Hello Murlidher,

    Sorry, I’m doing some testing and I haven’t really noticed anything.

    I know that many time the volume is set really high on the subwoofer. So high that the receiver compensates with a high negative gain during auto-correction. Where is the gain on your avr? if it’s too low in the negatives try lower the volume on the sub and re-running the room calibration trying to get the gains to 0.

    If the thud is still loud let me know.

    Hello Sir,

    The Debut B5s with a sub will sound great in a room that size.

    The Original Debut B5s are a great audiophile speaker, but they have been replaced with the Debut 2.0. You would need to buy the original debut used. The changes that were made in the Debut 2.0 were based on customer feedback. We specifically addressed placement and they are a lot more forgiving in terms of placement. Here’s a good video to view on those changes.

    Hello Sean,

    I’m sorry that it took so long to respond, I actually wanted to get input from Andrew.

    If there is a problem due to floor coupling. Try this:
    1) grab a couch cushion
    2) place the subwoofer on it’s side and place it on the couch cushion.
    If the rattle goes away, then you are correct in that it the sound was due to floor coupling. You may need to get a cushioning material for under your subwoofers that’s soft that the gym mats.

    If the rattle still exists, your room probably has rattles in it. This is not out of the question, considering that those are large subs and the bass can be exciting the stuff in the room. It’s kinda like those car with crazy systems in it. On a smart phone, I would download a tone signal generator and connect it to your system. Starting at low volume, test different subwoofer frequencies to help you find the rattles in the room and possibly secure them down.

    That’s a strange issue. Can you send me a screenshot to Customerservice@elac.us

    Hello DrCoras,

    I believe we spoke on the phone.

    I think that because the subwoofer is resting directly on the tile floor that might be the problem. I believe I recommended trying to tighten some screws and also try some of rubber, felt, or some soft material to see if that fixes the issue.

    Hello Jehickm,

    Based on specifications it looks like that NAD758V3 should have no problems powering the proposed speaker. And it should sound great without heat concerns.

    Funny you use the word invest, as I believe that a good power amp is an investment in a home audio/theater system. In many cases, the other electronics in a system may become obsolete rather quickly. But all speakers benefit from good power and the inputs and outputs of a power amp haven’t really changed.

    Based on specifications that Power amp seems to have ample power to effortlessly power the Uni-Fi speakers. I have not used that amp so I cannot give a recommendation. So I’m hoping that other can weigh in.

    Hello Chris,

    Ideally, all 5, 7, 9 speakers in a system would be the same exact speaker. If you consider stereo, you wouldn’t have the left speaker be of one model and the right speaker a different model. The balance would be off, one speaker would be brighter the other, one would be louder etc. So technically speaking in an ideal world system will have all the same exact speaker in all locations. But in the real world, this isn’t realistic ie it is practical to have a floor stand speaker as a center channel, as it would obstruct view of the screen. Within a speaker series all the speakers a timbre match meaning above certain frequencies they sound very similar if not the same.

    So with this in mind:

    Can you mix and match? Yes

    Will you have an enjoyable experience? Yes and I have done and very few would complain.

    Is doesn’t it make a perfect system? technically no and my job is to inform on how to get the best system.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello MM & JHJ1,

    Overall we recommend sticking to the the manufacturer’s suggested setting for 4 ohm. The Uni-Fi is a nominal 4 ohm speaker and measures should be taken as such.

    There are plenty of articles/audio gurus including the one posted above, that state the switch is not needed and handicaps your system and you lose dynamics and fidelity. If you choose to do this, you do it on your own risk. But I would play at moderate volume level monitoring heat, as overheating is a sign the receiver is failing. Next I would compare do A – B on different tracks, different movie scenes. Some will recognize the differences while others may not. If you don’t notice a change I would leave the safeties in place and protect your AVR. If you find that those setting are significantly positive, do as you wish, but know that some AVR manufacturers may void warranty, if things go wrong.

    Hello knatterton,

    The sub2050 like most subwoofers are not magnetically shielded. So there is a chance that the unit may cause disruption to a hard drive.

    No problem,

    Physically on the subwoofer. Because the crossover on receiver is already limiting the frequecies sent to the sub, having the LPF on the sub is redundant. Because setting the LPF on the sub to 150 practically disables the LPF so that there is no further reductions.

    Hello George,

    Based on specification, that integrated amp seems light on power, so you may lose some dynamics. It will work, but I cannot say it will sound great. We recommend 40 watts per channel or more. That being said that in a near field setup or desktop setup it may sound great.
