hey guys im new to this forum. i have an acoutech pl-200 i was wondering why my sub is a bronze type of color? is it because i didnt pay the full price they didnt want to send me the platinum version.
Im pretty impressed with the sub with movies, it shakes everything very easily, but with music im not really too impressed.. its like when i try to turn up the volume it bottoms out rather quickly. i like to listen to music pretty loud sometimes, probably much louder than most people, and my speakers definitely take control with the volume 75% up.
Its like with the sub it stops getting louder around 65% and when i turn it down to around 45% the sub is pretty quiet for a good 15 seconds and then starts to play the volume it should.
am i just expecting too much from this sub? I have used my jl w6 in my house with an amp from an onkyo sub rated around 100 watts at 8 ohms and it seemed to be louder.. but the box also was slightly bigger than this one.
the sub is wonderful for movies though. playing test tones it moves some air at 15 hz and starts to shake things around 18 hz
and around 50 hz up it starts to get quieter, which is fine, my speakers play down to 50 hz pretty well
im wondering if i shouldve just spent the extra money to get an hsu stf-1 but i just cant see an 8'' driver in a smaller box with a 150 watt amp getting louder than the pl-200
