• 15" Sub vs 12" sub - if both had the same max SPL/wattage (ignoring freq response) which would work better in a large hall? or both be same?

    Best answer: Technically... A larger driver Can be capable of moving more air, thus producing more SPL in a given space, BUT There are other factors. If the two drivers have equal sensitivity (say, for the sake of discussion, 89 dB / 1 W / 1 m), they will produce Exactly the same SPL in the same space. The larger one may... show more
    Best answer: Technically...

    A larger driver Can be capable of moving more air,
    thus producing more SPL in a given space,

    BUT

    There are other factors.

    If the two drivers have equal sensitivity (say, for the sake of discussion, 89 dB / 1 W / 1 m),
    they will produce Exactly the same SPL in the same space.
    The larger one may be a tiny bit better at the lowest frequencies,
    but that is unlikely to matter with most material.

    So, if the 15" sub is less sensitive, it will Not be moving More air;
    it will be moving Less air even though it is larger.


    Things like this sometimes catch even experienced people who haven't considered all the details,
    so don't feel too bad if it leads you to incorrect conclusions.

I already triend the trick with glue and it's not working. I don't have any people who work on electronics close to me. I've already tried the straw trick but it's in to tight. Does anybody else know a different way I can get the piece out? I really need help on this.

  • Beats in one ear aren’t working?

    Best answer: No worries there - it's not worth bragging about in the first place - they only retail for under $139 where I live. If it's failing when you move, you have a physical failure in the headphones.

    Unless you're willing to pay for a repair, it won't go away using resets or other software methods.

  • What noise cancelling headphones really work? i have a yapping dog in the bed with me that my wife won't get rid of?

    Best answer: Surgery, not medicine. You need one of those electronic bark stoppers that emits a signal each time it hears the barking, that discourages the dog from being a nuisance. Hide it under the bed. You must really really love her to put up with that. The dog needs its own bed, and training to shut up. There's... show more

  • Why is wireless charging a thing?

    Best answer: It's mainly a matter of convenience.

    It also saves wear and tear on physical connectors,
    but if those are treated with care they will last a long time.

  • Is it true Beats headphones cost way too much and are a rip off?

    Best answer: VERY true. ALL Beats are massively overhyped and overpriced FASHION TOYS, marketed VERY aggressively for gullible people who either do NOT CARE or do NOT KNOW a single thing about REAL audio quality. Instead, people should learn to rely ONLY on REPUTABLE manufacturers such as Sennheiser, Shure, Grado, Denon, AKG,... show more
    Best answer: VERY true. ALL Beats are massively overhyped and overpriced FASHION TOYS, marketed VERY aggressively for gullible people who either do NOT CARE or do NOT KNOW a single thing about REAL audio quality.

    Instead, people should learn to rely ONLY on REPUTABLE manufacturers such as Sennheiser, Shure, Grado, Denon, AKG, Bowers & Wilkins, Bang & Olufsen, Etymotic, Beyerdynamic, Audio-Technica. All these companies have been around for DECADES, so they KNOW what REAL quality is all about and therefore do NOT need any lousy rappers nor other celebrity wannabes to boost their sales.

  • Can I buy speakers for my car without getting a new stereo?

    Best answer: It would not be bad unless you chose bad speakers. Many cars these days have great stereos in them with performance limited by the stock speakers. You should choose speakers after listening to them in the shop, to tell if they actually can sound better than what you have. Look at the magnet on the speakers in the car already- usually you can see the rear speakers easily. Write down the labels on the speaker where it says what the impedance and power is. Impedance is a number followed by an omega. Do not replace with speakers having lower impedance. The power will be in watts and that is a guess unless it specifically says " xx rms watts". Commonly you'll find stock speakers 15-25 watts. Don't replace with ones with a lower number, but choosing a higher number won't make the stereo any more powerful. It will just be the speaker can handle the amount of power it's rated to. It doesn't hurt to choose a little higher there, to avoid distortion. Of course you can buy very expensive name brand speakers, such as Infinity or JBL, and the difference may be noticeable. Audition them before you choose. It's your money to spend so I won't tell you you must choose the best audiophile grade speakers to put on a stock stereo. Panasonic or Kicker may do all you need. Shop around. You might find a better price online than in store. You won't be able to audition online products. Before you buy a speaker, make sure it will fit in your car.

I ve tried pressing onto the power button for about 2 minutes. Nothing happened. I made sure it was plugged in properly. And no, the cord isn t damaged, since the player is fairly new. Yes, I asked my family for help. Yes, I checked the instructions. It says nothing about trouble shooting. Please help, my Dad bought me the entire collection of Pink Floyd/The Beatles, which I ve been very much looking forward to listen to. I need all the help I can. Thank you in advance!

    I have a 2005 model panasonic stereo system that has been played extremely heavily over the past 10 + years, and its starting to show a lot of wear on its system. Every once in a while, it'll play the instrumental part of a song, but the vocals are way too low to be heard or are drowned out by the bass. I'd say its time to put this thing in storage and get a new one that will perform better. Should I wait and hope for the best or just give up on it and invest in a new model?
