Question about Mordaunt Short 309W Subwoofer

Mordaunt Short Avant 309i subwoofer set-up

I suspect that this is not a simple answer but before I purchase I'd like to know the facts My home cinema system uses 2 MS 903i rear surrounds, 2 904i floorstanders and the 905i centre speaker. I love the speakers. I now want to add the MS 309i sub woofer which I am assuming should fit seamlessly. However unlike the speakers the sub has to be configured, using the various different settings. 1. Volume 2. Notch filter 3. Frequency 4. Phase In simple terms - how do I do it?

Lots of ways. To set it up properly you will need a decibel meter, Radio Shack makes a nice one. With the meter volume can easily be set as well as phase. I'm assuming frequency is the crossover frequency, generally set at 80Hz. This one involves some trial and error as I am not familiar with your speakers. Don't know much about the notch filter. A good resource for setting up subs can be found at: http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/bfd-rew-forum/index3.html

Integrated amplifier for Mordaunt-Short Avant 908i


Use an amplifier with NO MORE than 150 Watts per channel or you be buying new speakers. At this power level don't expect booming bass boost without damaging the speakers. The Rotel generates 130 per side which is very near the safe maximum for those speakers... and the specs look good. If you are not satified with the sound, the speakers are LIKELY the problem. Look at getting good commercial speaakers instead of CONSUMER grade speakers. Go to a music store dealing with bands and musicians and view the products they have to offer. Consumer speakers often fail when people turn up too much bass. At high listening levels hearing damage can result.

I Have a buzzing mordaunt short avant 916i cone


Hiya, its the cone. The former is touching the magnet inside. Realignment is really tricky and dont know many people who can do that so you may either have to live with it or see if someone can recone it in your area.

Best of luck

My mordaunt-short avant 908i front left speaker aluminum tweeter stopped working... no sound coming out, however two midrange speakers functioning just fine.


I had similar problems my tweeter was blowen and it had to be replaced... I actually blew the speaker many times using a NAD amp as there were spikes coming from the amp. I changed the amp to a Marantz PM7200 and have had no problems since.
