Hey How The Devil Oh Yeah So
look what I got today So I’ve bought um a Wolfdale diamond SW50 150 sub to go with my speakers and my hi-fi system can’t wait so before we get started let’s get this thing open so. This is the Wolfdale Diamond SW 150 subwoofer. It’s got a 10 inch or 250 millimeter woofer. I was hoping I could take the drill off to show you but at the moment I can’t see a way of getting it off so I don’t know um now This has been around for a long time. It’s been around I think early to mid-2000s.
Possibly This Was Brought Out, But It
was really highly rated at the time and you can pick these up now for 150 quid so my budget is a little bit tight. They’re going to pull in the purse strings a. bit I don’t want to go too mad and because this is a good a good subwoofer, especially for the price you’re paying for it. I thought I’d get this one to go with it um on the back. Let’s have a look on the back on the back.
Youve Got Your Line Level Input Here.
You got your high level inputs which are important for me because I have an old amp and I’ll go through that a bit later on in the video your volume your crossover frequency, which I’ll also cover later on in the video you’ve got your phase 0 to 180. You go your auto power on and off so if you have that switched on, but it detects power source or any music go into it. It’ll come on automatically automatically so you can leave it switched on and pretty much that’s it and then you’ve got the heatsink here so what are the specs as I said it’s got a 250 mil woofer long. Throw amplified power is 150 watts and the frequency response is 35 to 110 hertz okay so now I want to connect my amp to my subwoofer but here’s the problem.
Ive Got No Sub Out.
This is an old amp, so I can’t connect it by the via the sub from this amp to here to go into these connections These line levels. Some people tell you you need to connect them from A and B so a runs to your loudspeakers and B runs to the subwoofer. You can do it like that no problem but I haven’t got a Mb. I just got these left and right that’s.

It So What You Got To Do
with this? You have to run the subwoofer from these to these and speakers from them so very easily All you do you run from left to left black to black. So I’ll pop these in here so what we want to do now is set the crossover frequency. Now the instructions are about as useful as a comb for a bald man. Just it doesn’t really give anything away exactly where to set it it says just use your own ears so I be doing a bit of research. A lot of people say different things um.
I May Say Set It 10
above the lowest frequency on your loudspeakers. Now my loudspeakers at the moment are go down to 41 Hertz so that would say suggest that I turn this up to around about 52 Hertz are there in there above. This goes up in clicks so I’d have to set it to 55, but you could never you know trust the manufacturer’s recommendations even though they’re not lying. They do this in a perfect room with all soundproofing around and all measurement tools to get that low frequency. You’re never gonna get that in your house unless you’ve got a room like they’ve got it so I would suggest you go about 20 above so I’m going to set this to 65.
65 Hertz Um Now I May Not Like
it. I will experiment going lower and higher you just trust these it’s your personal preference and that and but I’m going to stick to 65 and see how I go from there it may go up to 75. But I’ll use my ears to find out. Then you’ve got the phase m so if you’re if you think your base is at the phase with your speakers You can flip that over to 180 because I’m connecting speaker to speak using the speaker terminals and on a sub-out. I don’t think the phase is going to be affected.
I Cant I I Really Dont Think So
so I’m going to leave that on notes and then you’ve got the a volume to set that that’s your personal preference, but in saying that for me I would suggest you need to set this up so it blends in with the speakers doesn’t overpower them. You don’t want the bass taken over. You want it to sound like that bass is coming from your speakers not coming from a separate entity, so you don’t want to have this at blasting of you know really low frequencies. Although Although some people like that you know there are people out there you go you go in their car or in the house and it’s like so it’s it’s totally down to you okay um I’m gonna set it halfway and we’ll go from there to see if I need to turn it up or down a little bit or mess with the crossover frequency. We’ll see now the reason I’ve connected up with the wires on the back is because I need to connect the speakers up to these as well, so I’m going to be using the banana plugs and what I’ll do I’ll plug the banana plugs in here okay and then and that’ll go to my speaker and that’s why I’ve plugged them in the back.
I May Get Banana Plugs To Go
into these here because it’s just easier than feeling this they’re trying to. slot them through the holes and and screen them up. It’s a pain in the neck. I don’t think it makes any massive differences to the sound quality, but it’s just easier more convenient Okay let’s get the speakers connected up properly get it back over to my system and have a listen to see what it sounds like with and without the sub okay. It’s all set up and ready to go um so what I did after messing about with it a little bit.
I Felt That Hertz Was About Right So
about 20 above or there were there abouts of what my frequency response on my speakers are and i set the volume to about three quarters of the way as I found halfway wasn’t enough and full up was just a bit too much bit in your face. Now it just blends into the speakers now. So it’s perfect for me but again it depends on you the person what your preference is anyway? Let’s have a listen so so so what do you think I mean for some people it may not be enough for me it’s perfect you can’t tell there’s a sub if it wasn’t if you hit the sub you wouldn’t know if something like it’s coming through the speakers which that’s my preference. I wanted to sound like that. If you wanted it a little bit more bass you could tune you could turn it up a little bit to full volume mess about with the the crossover, so you can get a bit more bass out of it.
But I Found My Settings.
I had perfect for me and I really like it anyway hope you enjoyed it. I enjoyed it thanks for watching I’ll see you soon you.
