Re: Energy ESW-8 NAW-T-BOY Edition :)

Very nicely done! OK, question: how are running 2-4 of these and how are you handling the crossover duties? I know cap is cutting the low EQ on the Compacts and running the ESW's at high-power to get it done, but that seems very inefficient. Maybe that's why having 1200 watts is such a good thing!

Re: Energy ESW-8 NAW-T-BOY Edition :)

I just purchased the grills as well...great idea!

Can someone post a link to the Ariba cases? I can't tell which one to order for certain.

Thanks

Re: Energy ESW-8 NAW-T-BOY Edition :)

I just hook up each esw-8 to the rca outputs of the compact


and as far as the settings go I use the one's Cap came up with


From Caps Post:
"The ESW-8s were set at 80% of it's capable volume, the crossover set at 180hz, and the phase shift at 360 "

Thanks for the Ariba link, I just purchased mine. And I do the same thing with the settings, and have never had a problem. In fact, many compliments, and the usual surprised looks when people see where all of that sound comes from.

Just so you know 360 degrees and 0 degrees are the same. 🙂

I adjust the phase by just listening. Start some music and turn on the sub, adjust the phase to the maximum output level, then you can adjust the volume some if needed.
