Subwoofers And Two Channel – Tips, Tricks and Setup | The Occasional Podcast

The Occasional Podcast: Now on iTunes!

This week’s episode of The Occasional Podcast treads fairly deep into the abyss that is subwoofer tips and setup. Paired with a two channel system, subs can provide a very rewarding foundation from which to build the rest of the sonic staging upon. Getting it to cohesive meeting place can be tricky however. Host Brian Hunter and Director of Technology at SVS, Ed Mullen steer the TOP ship in the proper direction with a whole hour of explanation, exploration and excavation of tools that will light the way. Are you ready tomb raider?

The educational show sheds light on all the tips that help blend a sub into the limitations that most hifi speakers run up against. Connections, slope, crossover points? The pair cover a lot of ground and even dip into the shared application with surround sound systems. A properly executed sub is beautiful thing, hopefully this podcast will help beautify your rig or at the least dust off some cobwebs on the subject enough to dive back into the low end properly.

The Occasional Podcast is making its way though season 5 with subwoofer tips, but don’t miss our conversation from last week’s Music Servers & How Everything Matters, or even our interview audio legend Mike Moffat from the season opener. Also available for download is last season’s interviews with Heinz Lichtenegger, president of Pro-Ject. You can also check out Budgeting – From Entry Level To High End, Getting Started With Vinyl Playback, The Occasional Beginner’s Guide To Digital Audio and our take on the “Loudness Wars” which has been a highlight for the season. Season three had interviews with such audio legends as Jeff Joseph, Bill Dudleston, Nelson Pass and even Rob Watts. We had an amazing response from our show with engineer Dave McNair exploring all things Mastering, and if you haven’t checked out our beginners guide to reel-to-reel playback, it’s definitely worth a listen.
