PAX drivers are a good alternative
^ The X-Fi cards were definitely great sounding cards, but there were certainly some driver issues regarding Creative. Once you're able to get past that mess, they sound and function quite good
Need some help with my sub, it's the m-audio sbx10, it overpowers my BX5s too much even at very low volume, like 1/4.
Crossover is at 100hz.
Also, how can i prevent the doors from shaking very loudly?
Should i put the sub on something?
The sub itself shouldn't be rocking/moving at all- in which case it isn't a physical movement that is causing the door to shake- it's the sound waves. In which case putting it on something won't do anything.
As for overpowering your speakers, you could:
Get bigger speakers
Lower the subs volume even more
Get something to help reduce/EQ the volume, such as a Cleanbox Pro
Buy a microphone to see exactly what frequency range you find overpowering, and EQ that down
There are other things you could do, but you get the idea. It's going to be hard to suggest a solution if you don't have a way of measuring where the issue is.
rder: Sounds like there may be more of an issue with your doors than your sub! Also, chances are your receiver is controlling the x-over frequency, so it wouldn't matter what you set your sub to
I just recently bought 2 UXL's and installed them into 4 cu ft sealed cabinets. Did you ever fix the problem with your subs? I'm curious what crossover settings did you use?
They werent his subs or problem.
Check the post above his.
Yeah, not having any problems with my subs.
I'm running (2x) UXL-18's in mini marty's between 17-100hz and (2x) PA460-8's in 4cu ft boxes from like 40-150hz.
