Well gentlemen, it's been a very good day! 3:30 UPS guy opens the door, puts my speaker on the floor and says 'let the party begin you have your speaker.' Said have a great day and walked away, no taxes, no duty, no brokerage, no nothin!
Why anyone would want more bass than this thing provides is beyond me. Unless you have a seriously large room this will be sufficient and then some. I have it hooked up via sub out or LFE and turned to 3 as you'll see if my pics, and it is TONS-o-bass. I've listened to music from CD and my I-Phone and watched a few snippets of movies/concerts. Unfortunately, my bluray player won't play bluray, going in under warranty soon, but it does play DVD and CD's. I watched the opening scene of Saving Private Ryan, the beach scene, HOLY ****! (hope I can swear on this forum) I watched a bit of Eagles-Hell Freezes Over, WOW. Some of the most bass intense parts I've experienced so far shook me and the room but when I looked at the driver it was hardly moving, no where near it's capacity, but I could still feel it in my chest, awesome. I'm no audiophile, or is that audiofile, but I know what I like and this is intense. It's tight, not boomy, sounds like it's coming from all over not from the direction of the sub. When I look into my surround speakers it sounds like the bass is coming from them.
I've added a couple of pics of my now antique Advents with the cool orange tweeter and the equally ancient PSB's, both of which still sound increadible after a woofer surround transplant. Good job if I don't say so myself.
If you were thinking about this sub, jump in it will satisfy!!!
Looks like I'll have to make another post for more pics... I'll do the pics of my old speakers in a new post.
