Klipsch R 12SW Subwoofer Black Friday Deals 2020
Today we’re going to unbox a clip are 112 SW that I got last week we’re going to set it up and do some tests to dial it in so we’re going to get into all that right after the jump and I am back as you know I bought those two big floor-standing speakers the clips are p2 ATF’s and I got a free subwoofer which is pretty awesome because the subwoofer cost so yay I was really blown away by the bass response of the RP to ATF and I didn’t even hook up the subwoofer until I enjoyed the speaker’s themselves in the last week I listened to a lot of music I downloaded on flak and the figures are phenomenal crisp clear and the low-end was there enough for music listening now when we go into movie listening they did a great job they just didn’t have that like Rumble you know I mean that Rumble so that’s where the subwoofer comes in so let’s see what’s in the box and get on with it alright first off we got the IEC two prong connector then we have a voltage selector and then we have the wireless port you got your line in your left right or LFE we have a three-way switch for power standby auto and on you’ve got a phase switcher for 0 and 180 low-pass filter we’ve got markings 40 80 120 and on the right LFE that’s what I usually set it on and then you got your gain knob alright doesn’t that look beautiful that copper cone is amazing it’s really pretty awesome and you’ve got to see it in person you know the subwoofer is fairly large luckily I don’t have anything in that area and it fits well on that subdued HT that I bought the other day so I’ll put a link in the description for that as well basically what that does is it decouples the subwoofer from the floor so you saw me set it up now we have to actually dial it in what does that mean I need to get that subwoofer to work with the two floor standing speakers in tandem they need to work well together now it’s talking to one of my colleagues dad does the sound for all the live events that I deejay around town and we’re talking on about a 10,000 to 30,000 watt system you know for different levels of crossover it’s a pretty intense kind of setup in talking with him trying to figure out where I should have my speakers crossed over and the sub crossed over he gave me the best advice that I’m going to give to you now when people add a subwoofer to their hi-fi system or for their home theater what usually ends up happening is they have too much bass and the bass is overpowering and everything sounds bass heavy and what you want to do is find the right balance yeah sure you’ve got a 12 inch or a 15 inch subwoofer and you like to shake the out of the house perfectly fine perfectly alright and that’s what you’re looking for right but here’s the thing you want to make sure you dial in that sub so it’s not overpowering you want it to sound natural you want it to sound like that’s a normal level of bass and we can do this in a few ways so the first thing I did was I ran the Odyssey XT 32 I think it’s called through my Denon AVR so the first thing you have to do is you plug in the mic set up the tripod in your listening station and then you turn on your subwoofer and set it to 12 o’clock now when I clicked okay it said the subwoofer is too loud so I needed to dial it back down to 75 dB so I dial it down once it reached under 75 DB I got a green light and then the subwoofer was at a good volume so then the speaker setup could continue now as far as where I crossed everything over I went with an 80 Hertz crossover for the center and the main and the surrounds the surrounds and the centers can go down to 60 and the mains can go down to 35 so I figured 80 would be a good place because sometimes you have male voices that get pretty low and you still want that to come out of the center channel and not the mains or the subwoofer so I elected to go with 80 as far as the subwoofer I have that set to LFE I believe that sends for low frequency effects it’s usually the 0.1 of a 5.1 sound track in the Denon the LFE is set at 120 so you’re getting an overlap you’ll have the subwoofer going from way down low to 120 and you’ll have all the other speakers at 80 and going above 1 to 1 so I have the mains and the other speaker set at 80 Hertz I have the subwoofer set at 120 so now we do a subwoofer sweep and with the sweep test what we’re looking for is a nice even amount of volume from 200 to 50 or if you’re going the other way from 50 to 200 you want to hear it’ll go through your mains and into the subwoofer you want to make sure there is no jump in volume whether it’s up or down you want to find the right spot so to do this test I personally was going to make a sine wave sweep in my audio software to actually test this out but I did a little poking around online and it found that somebody else has done that for me you guys should definitely check this out if you want to dial in your subwoofer it’s a website called audio check dotnet also here’s the website I’m talking about audio check dotnet you should definitely check out this website so let’s go on to the sound test over here so this is the sweet bone talking to you about if you’re wondering how I did the test I have my Mac Mini hooked up to the Denon the HDMI all the audio is coming through the Denon and being played out the Caliph speakers so when I hit play I’m not sure you’re going to hear much of this because it’s only being recorded through this microphone but basically the guy kind of talks through the frequencies if you hear them you hear them if you don’t you don’t in this video at least when you try this out on your own system you’ll definitely hear at all 10 Hertz 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 110 120 130 hundred 400 660 hundred 789 two hundred all right wasn’t that cool what else do we have here let’s see he’s got the subwoofer kick test now this is pretty cool he made a bunch of kicks like 808 kicks at certain frequencies so that’s also cool to check out on your subwoofer subwoofer mid-range frequency test you can check these out subwoofer crossover test one soca crossover test 2 and he’s also got these descriptions on what they should sound like and what you should hear and what you should in here so this is definitely a good resource for you to check out here you got stereo imaging test left and right stereo audio test loudspeaker polarity test stereo perception and sound localization wow that sounds cool so there’s a lot of cool stuff on this site I would definitely recommend you guys checking it out once again it’s called audio check net and I think I will give him five bucks because this is a pretty cool site and I didn’t have to do all those work alright so let’s go back to the regular video now now for all these tests you want to make sure that you’re not running any surround sound we just want the mains and the subwoofer to interact with each other so that we can set it properly now when I ran the test I ended up having to turn myself or four down just a little bit from there it was a nice solid audio level I wanted to test it out to see if the bass was balanced I want to make sure my subwoofer is balanced with the rest of my system because if it’s not balanced it’s going to sound overpowered and tube AC and I’m not going to like that personally so I was thinking to myself what movie has a nice big sine wave drop hmm and I was like aha I know which one Lord of the Rings the very first one fellowship that’s the one you know what I’m talking about it happens in the first for four and a half minutes in the movie Galadriel kind of telling the story of what happens and then they’re fighting they’re fighting on the slopes of Mount Doom for the future of middle-earth or whatever and then when they kill what’s-his-name sour on the bad guy there’s this huge like effect like all this energy gets pulled into where he’s added in his mmm a big ol sine wave drop and a big crash when his helmet the empty helmet hits the ground that is a great test to see exactly how balanced your subwoofer is once you dial it in after using the test at audio check net because in this scene it’s a battle scene there’s stuff happening all around you you’re getting a lot of high pitch – – like 7
,000 Hertz range you’re getting people hitting each other like studs that’s happening like the 500 to 800 range and then you’re getting some rumbles and this big sine wave drop once the bad guy gets killed it’s a perfect way to see if your subwoofer is now in tune with your system or to overpowered so I would definitely recommend that to you guys wanting to dial in your subwoofer to make your movie going experience just that much better so I’m really loving this reference premiere update with all these new speakers the subwoofer is awesome next up I got the RP 140 si those are the dolby atmos speakers for my five point one point two setup.
