• Looking for a single unit speaker with subwoofer (good bass) that I can use in my bedroom. Any recommendations?

    I've currently got a cheap THX speaker set with a subwoofer and it (in my opinion) sounds better than the single speakers I've seen at the tech stores (Sony Bass for example).

    I've currently got a cheap THX speaker set with a subwoofer and it (in my opinion) sounds better than the single speakers I've seen at the tech stores (Sony Bass for example). I just want a single standing unit as I'm fixing my room up and it will look too cluttered having a big subwoofer on the ground as well as two random speakers. I don't want to spend a ridiculous amount, but the sound quality is important to me. I just want something for my bedroom for listening to music. I like a full sound, rich sound and a good bass. I listen to all sorts of music, but mostly classics. I'd really appreciate if you could give me some recommendations as I don't know much about speakers. Thanks!

  • Amplifier board Noise when input cable is plugged in?

    Best answer: That's normal, it shows the amp is working. The noise should stop when you connect a signal source to the cable, rather than it having an "open input". If you mean it's squealing or hissing _very_ loudly rather than just faint hum or hiss, that can be a problem with the power supply - not enough... show more
    Best answer: That's normal, it shows the amp is working.
    The noise should stop when you connect a signal source to the cable, rather than it having an "open input".

    If you mean it's squealing or hissing _very_ loudly rather than just faint hum or hiss, that can be a problem with the power supply - not enough current rating or the wires to the amp too long / thin - or the input wires are too near the output wiring.

    Power problems can often be reduced by adding a fairly large electrolytic capacitor and a smaller ceramic or polyester capacitor directly to the amp power terminals. eg. 470 or 1000uF and 0.1 uF.

    Twist together any "paired" wires if they are more than a couple of inches long - the +/- (and ground?) power wires and (separately) the speaker wires.

  • Do Powerbeats earphones wear out over time?

    Best answer: They shouldn't.

    If they get full of wax, that could change their characteristics.

  • Why does my Tesla NC 420 turntable buzz when I turn it on? What do I need to make it work?

    Found a turntable at some market for cheap, I don t know if it works. I m an absolute noob in this, but I connected it and it all spins a vinyl but only a very loud buzz is coming from the speakers. What do I need to add? A transformator? What is it called? How do I connect it?

  • What's the best way to power 4 2000w car amplifiers at home?

    I need a way to power 4 2000w subwoofers for use in a home theater and I decided to use car amplifiers since I would be able to create my own power source of sorts by using a 12v battery.

    I need a way to power 4 2000w subwoofers for use in a home theater and I decided to use car amplifiers since I would be able to create my own power source of sorts by using a 12v battery. What's the best way of going about doing this? I only need the car amplifier to run at full tilt for less than 20 minutes since movies would probably never use that much power and I doubt I could take that much volume for longer than that. Also, would I be able to connect a battery charger in parallel so that I can keep the battery charged when the amps are not being in use? is there anything bad in keeping the battery charger connected whilst the amps are being in use?

  • Do people still use ipods?

    Best answer: Sure. Apple still makes iPod so people must be using them. Apple doesn’t become the most valuable company by selling stuff that people don’t buy.

  • It seems every time I get earbuds or a headset, one side goes out. Is there any way to prevent one side of headsets/earbuds from going out?

    Best answer: Be very careful about handling them.

    Never stretch or yank the wires or bend them sharply.

    Wind the cord in a loose loop for storage.


    This applies to All such things, not just ordinary inexpensive ones.

    Even when handled with great care, the possibility of failure remains.

  • Best studio headphones for producing?

    I'm a fairly new producer and i need to upgrade my equipment. I can't get studio monitors because I live with my family and have paper thin walls. So I have to resort to headphones. Any recommendations? I've been looking at the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 250 Ohm. Preferably under $200

    I have always wondered what is the "Major" factor that produces quality sound in say phones or computers. I'm guessing it's a bit of everything,but for example, when I'm building a PC, what "contributes" the most to "good sound" is it the sound card? is it the speakers? is it the headphones? If I had to pick one budget-wise, what would I pick to make the most out of it? Also when it comes to phones, is it mostly hardware? earphone model? file type (mp3, aac, flac)? Like I said, I'm guessing it's a combination of all those elements, but is there an element I should put more focus on?
