Zen Select, Klipsch RF-7, HSU Subs
12/30/12 at 16:01:08
 
Oppo BDP-83SE, Zen Select, Klipsch RF-7, Dual HSU 15" Subs (ULS-15) and Dual HSU 12" Mid Bass Modules (MBM-12 MK2)

Front wall is bare since I use it to project a 100" image from a Panasonic PT-AE3000U front projector.

Two watts with this speaker setup easily rocks my 15' X 21' listening room with an equally large adjacent kitchen and dining area.

I've noticed that everyone has more or less the same rug.

Nice setup.  What's the stand your using?  I have a two component system and need a nice two shelf stand to streamline the look.  Thanks.

It is fun to see a room that can be filled by 2 watts. I love that. I'll bet the Klipsch's sound terrific.

I love Decware with Klipsch horns.  Dynamics galore.

neilwill, Bought these stands years ago from Audio Advisor and see that they no longer carry this exact stand but this is close.

You purchase the base unit and then separate shelf units that stack on top.

Longbowbbs, Cervelorider,

It is crazy how well the Super Zen and RF-7's fill a large open space. I have to say however there were times when I wished I had a few more watts, that is until I purchased the HSU Mid Bass Modules. These added a crazy Mid Bass Punch that two watts simply could not deliver.

The Super Zen just seems to do everything right with the mids and highs. The Mid Bass Modules reinforce the low end making the sound stage much bigger and meatier than you would think. Since the MBM purchase I have not wanted for more power.

For me the combination of the Super Zen, RF-7's and Mid Bass Modules  is simply hard to beat.

I have a Def Tech Supercube III I used with the DM945's to give them that extra low end push.

May I ask how all those speakers are wired?  Are they daisy-chained, or do you have Y adapters in front of the first two speakers on each channel?

Is anything connected to the "output to speakers" connectors on the MBM-12s?

There are two outputs on the CSP2+ One went to the Taboo MK III as a Pre-Out for the DM945's. The other I used the Right channel output to feed the Super Cube III Subwoofer. Pretty straight forward. Worked very well too.

The Left & Right are wired in a speaker level Daisy Chain configuration. From the Amp to Left & Right mains using Kimber 4TC speaker cable. From Left & Right mains to Left & right subs using CAT-5 cable. From Left & Right subs to Left & Right mid bass modules using CAT-5 cable.

The Mid Bass Modules have Speaker Level input connections (no Speaker Level  output connections like you might find on some subs if that is what you are getting at). My mains are strong down to 50hz. The MBM simply augments the 50 to 150hz range. The MBM provides added density and a better 3D sense to the music.

I hadn't heard of using CAT-5 cables for speaker cables before.  How do they connect?  All eight wires in the CAT-5 wrapped around binding posts?

Is there a voltage regulator in these pictures, or am I thinking of somebody else?

I've used Cat-5 and Cat-6 (Cryo'd) wire in the past, just one strand for positive, one for negative per speaker. Nice. Low down the totum pole of my favorites but nice.

For the record it seems my above statement was not entirely correct. The Mid Bass Module does have Speaker Level Inputs AND Outputs. Best I can determine there is no Crossover in the Output circuit (simply a pass-through) ???

On another note, The HSU "Quick Set-Up Guide" for the Mid Bass Module states: "Speaker Level connections are to be used only as a last resort. Much prefer line level connections".

I'm not sure why HSU suggests Speaker Level connections are inferior to Line Level connections?  I'm having great results with Speaker Level connections.
