Multiple subs, what do you think?
I feel almost like a REL collector. Just recently moved into a new home built in 1941 and plan to use the living room as my home theater. As far as REL''s, I have three R528's and two T-9's. My plan is to use the R528's fro FL, FR, RL & RR using high level for the fronts only and LFE for all four. Then, a T-9 will be used for the center channel (high level only). Basically my 5.1 system will be more like a 5.5 system giving each speaker its own sub. Having all areas of the room supported by subs couldn't be a bad thing, right?
Another idea I have is placing a granite slab under each subwoofer. If the R528 is roughly 15" square, I think a 20" square x 1" (roughly) thick granite slab would help the subwoofer produce a nice accurate punch as opposed to more of a muffed sound created by the area rug covering almost the whole floor.
Has anyone experimented with placing their sub on a dense slab and noticed any difference, good or bad?
