View Full Version : Digital delay box??

11-10-2007, 09:21 PM
Today I bought a HSU MBM-12 mid bass woofer. Covers
mid bass from 50HZ to 150Hz. In the instruction manual
it says to use a "digital delay box" between the main sub
(which is 12' away and is a VTF3/3), and the MBM-12 which
will be placed nearfield behind and next to the couch.

Can anyone recommend a "digital delay box" on the cheap..
just need a 12 millisecond delay for this.....any suggestions
would be appreciated, and thanks in advance.....vardo

I haven't heard of an outboard digital delay. Since HSU suggested it have you checked to see if they offer one? What output are you using from your receiver, it may have delay for that output in your set up menu. Of course, if both subs are using the same output that certainly won't work. You may have to reconfigure your subs hook up in order to utilize the built in receiver's delay.

Thanks for the reply Mr Peabody. I contacted HSU and this is what
they suggested:

My receiver has delays for surround speakers, but not for dual
subs. Only one sub output. On that one LFE output I have the
VTF3/3 w/turbo, HSU MBM-12, and a 270w plate amp from Parts
Express, which powers 4 Aura bass shakers.

I might try the delay suggested by HSU. If I do I'll post my results,
