+1 with SirQuacks preferences, I had fully intended purchasing an Outlaw pre/pro but the unit was canceled before release! Like you I wanted to try the separates route but ended up using a Marantz AVR with an Outlaw 7700. As JohnK has said this much

mine from many years ago did the same thing, at certain frequencies and during explosions. Ended up being air escaping around the amp plate. Snugged up the bolts and all gone. It can also be a wire rattling internally. Try removing the driver and

Ours is probably about a STC of 40 for the walls and maybe 46-48 for the ceiling based on extrapolation of additional batting thickness on STC. We had considered the staggered studs method which would have added maybe 5 to 7 more STC but really, i do

That is a cool document. I will admit that I just scrolled (quickly) down until I got past all of those "words" until I saw pictures. LOL No, I always do that with long articles just to skim through to get an overview of what it contains.

Not sure if anyone came across this, or if it had been posted in the past, but the NRC did a TON of tests back in 1995 on various interior wall construction methods and subsequent sound transmission. Really quite impressive results and really helps

With 35 views and 0 comments I'd assume no ones tried it. Too bad they wouldn't work like bass traps. I do have a 5" round hole saw and a pile of insulation laying around. I hate to recycle them just to need them down the road. Leave them alo

Aside from the aforementioned opinions on the mount, i fail to see why ANY mount wouldn't have at least 2 points of contact for mounting. This greatly decreases the risk of a failure of a single point causing so much damage. A decent non-shearing sc
