    KECES HA-171 vs. M^3

    I do own both of these amps (HA-171 and M^3).  Unfortunately, I use them in different locations (home vs work) with different sources (E-MU 0404 with dedicated DAC vs iPhone) and completely different headphones (HD595 vs Ety ER4P), so I can't really compare them.   They both sound great...

    Sennheiser Hd-595 impressions

    SR225 or HD595

    car speakers- they are all bright as the sun!

    I have loads of recommendations.... If they all sound bright then you're listening to the wrong speakers (Infinity, Focal, MBQ). Infinity's reference line is on the extreme low end of the spectrum as far as car audio goes. You're not alone in your dissatisfication with them, lord knows I hate...

    How do you EQ your Grados?

    I had to bump the sub-80hz region on my 225s because it was severely lacking right out of the box. I got the supermacro which helped and I turned off the EQing (I'm not a fan of EQing, never feels right to me) but it was still a little lacking, but with the impedance switch they sound just...

    Question about speaker wire

    I always treat the wire that has markings or has the most vibrant color as + (green and grey, green is +; striped and non-striped, striped is +; red and black, red is +). It doesn't matter at all what you do as long as you do the same thing at the speaker end as you do at the amp end.

    car audio newbie, subwoofers?

    You would want to port it if anything, sealed boxes have a natural ~12dB/oct rolloff starting at their F3, which is normally around 50-60hz. This means that no matter what sub (or how many subs) you got, the response would start falling off right around the crossover point, if your F3 was say...

    Apologies to Grado users, and kudos to Grado
