  1. It sold. If looking for class D, the hypex nc400, nc500 (the amp module) and 502 hypex have a much better noise floor than the Pascal or ice modules in the d-sonic.
  2. Putty and paint, makes it what it ain't! Only downside I see is that you seem to only have 2
  3. Do 4 skrams instead
  4. Only thing bad about the NSW 21s are that I should have bought more when there was that great sale or I should have been 10 minutes faster to buy the one's Ricci had tested.
  5. Hi SME Have really enjoyed all the details /experience / knowledge you have and continue to share. Movie content can indeed flex things a bit. Seems that more recent movies have sound engineers that are already boosting the low end, so I typically do not run as hot there. A recent movie that I thought was mixed well in the recent past was Ford vs Ferrari. With RTA and music, I've always enjoyed the feel (literally) of live music. I run the bass hot in music to get that "feel" in my chest and such of the drums/bass while still saving my ears - still can hear up to 17.5khz in my 4th decade so hopefully it stays and what I've been doing in this hobby has been correct. For the RTA, it is typically fast and keeps the peaks held on screen in addition to the current live reads. The 100+ peaks are in the low end with 80dB peaks from mids to highs. Many music genres mid and high peaks are pretty constant with less lonely peaks or difference between averages and highs. Sorry for the confusion regarding "hits". When a kick drum or similar "hits" (depending on genre), the RTA will show the low end Hz "hit" and then drop for a count or similar before it "hits" again. Hope that makes sense
  6. 8 Stereo Integrity HT18s (2 aren't pictured as they are behind the first row of seats) get 4 channels from 2 cheap inuke 600s The 2 NSW21s in the 2 skrams and 8 PA460s (4 per box with a series parallel wiring between boxes) get 1 channel each of a sinbosen FP20000Q 230v (have an unused channel right now out of the 4 available) Headroom is pretty good. I'll run 75 to 80 db A weighted and hit 105 to 110 db C weighted for music at the main listening position with an RTA running.
  7. I just finished two boxes for a similar configuration. Each box has 4 8ohm 18" drivers. I wired the boxes to be series parellel (4ohm total load). Haven't had any issues.
  8. Finally got everything up and running. 8 pa460s (2 boxes - each has 4 pa460 in a 2x2 dual opposed sealed box). 6 HT18s sealed up front from 0-60hz. 8 PA460s sealed from 10 to 110hz 2 Nsw6021 skrams 31 to 110hz Bass uniformity across all 7 seats improved a bit. If I were starting from scratch, I'd do 16 pa460s sealed and 4 Nsw6021 skrams. Crazy how these pa460s can only be 70ish bucks shipped with bulk pricing and 15% coupon discount. Integration all done via a 10x10 minidsp.
  9. Good luck with the amplifier build. I too will have 502s (6 channel amp - 3 modules). Will be using them alongside the nc500s for the surrounds. These modules continue to provide clean power with efficiency.
  10. Guess it should also be noted that here in the States, birch plywood is typically more expensive than Baltic birch plywood (region and species differences similar to the differences between pine VS southern yellow pine). If in the Midwest States or you don't have access to Baltic birch in your local area - Baird brothers has good stuff. I'm in the Northeast States and with an order of 10+ sheets, Baird Baltic birch BB plywood delivered to my shop was cheaper with better selection. https://www.bairdbrothers.com/mobile/Hardwood-Plywood-C966.aspx
  11. Is that $130 for AA or BB or other quality? Cabinet grade Baltic birch is around $120s to 150s depending on thickness
  12. Baltic Birch 13ply BB/BB from local lumber yards are a few bucks more than maple, oak, and Southern pine 7 ply and MDF at the box stores in most the USA. ($60ish) If painting, the BB/BB is a no brainer in my opinion. If staining, the BB/BB can work as well if you are able to be selective or properly position your cuts around the patches. The AA/XX variety is usually about 100 bucks.
  13. Been really busy... Have one box glued and sanded. Need to get 2nd box going. Hopefully I can get some time soon
  14. Interesting. I do not have FA503s. I have the nc500s https://www.hypex.nl/product/nc500-oem/50. I have also had the nc400s (borrowed). There is zero audible hiss with any signal. I am interested in the newer 502 https://www.hypex.nl/product/nc502mp-oem/77 or 252 for other channel duty. Potentially similar high SINAD and clean power. The nc400s were the same as the nc500 (no audible hiss) and clean power. The Pascal L pro modules had audible hiss that annoyed me during quiet movie passages, soft jazz music, and other genres with similar sonic qualities. The X Pro and M pro were slightly better, but I ultimately sold my D-sonic amplifier that used the X pro modules. For inefficient speakers, the X pros may be a good fit.
