No more woofer pumping

I recently upgraded to my first pair of ported speakers, a set of B&W 683s. The first time I played some vinyl I was quite concerned as I'd never seen woofers behaving the way these were, even between tracks! Digital sources were fine, but vinyl had the woofers pumping around even at low volume levels. I had the Marantz cranked up to about 70% and it switched itself off (protection circuit I assume). I knew something wasn't right...

I tried Vibropods thinking I had an isolation issue, even moved the turntable to a different room, all with the same result. Thanks to some time Googling I found out about subsonic filters which led me to Acoustic Sounds.

Once the filter was fitted between the TT and the preamp, everything was golden. No more woofer pumping, and bass was still there. We played a bunch of different records last night and problem solved. Thank you D.B. Systems!


D.B. to the rescue!

I'm currently using an old pair of original Italian Handmade Opera Audio Callas Monitors with expensive ScanSpeak Revelator midwoofers that stopped bouncing around after Installing this cheap tweak from D.B. systems. They really do work. Thanks again to Acoustic Sounds for saving the day.

Yes these actually work. I was sceptical at first but when I coupled these with the Auralex Iso-tone platform......also purchased here......I was floored. No more rumble. No more woofer pumping. Just nice clean low end. If you're having these issues,give these a shot. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Used with a Micro Seiki DD-35 and Ortofon 2M Blue.


Best 20 bucks I've spent on my system

Like some of the other reviewer I had a nasty speaker rumble when playing LP'S specifically in the quiet moments between tracks. I inserted the DB subsonic filters and no more rumble even at very high volume levels. Great product. Thank you D.B. Systems for a budget solution.


This Really Works!

My turntable is on top of a 4 foot tall equipment cabinet, along a side wall, and 6 feet in front of my 2 speakers and powered sub. There is no other location for my turntable in this room. I had a persistent LF rumble and no rumble filter on my pre-amp. I bought an expensive base for the turntable, a cork mat, and isolation feet. Each item helped but the rumble/woofer flutter was still there. I tried this DB Systems Subsonic Filter and this really works! I still have plenty of bass and now I have plenty of volume! This will not degrade the sound quality of your system.


Did the trick!

Had the nasty rumble in my speakers and could not isolate the turntable enough to help it.Popped these in line and it has worked great ever since.
