I'm not looking for anything particularly memorable from Robin Hood but am cautiously optimistic that it will be all right. Ridley Scott almost always does pretty good work and the film has an excellent cast. Time will tell, I guess.

I didn't see Robin Hood, but I thought Scott's Kingdom of Heaven was pretty good. After seeing the trailer for Robin Hood, I thought, "what does this have to do with Robin Hood?" Didn't resemble any Robin Hood I knew about, it really looked like a generic middle ages movie, so I skipped it. When I was a kid, I used to enjoy the Errol Flynn and Kevin Costner movies, but I haven't seen either in a long time.

I liked Kingdom of Heaven well enough when I saw it on either HBO or Showtime. I recently watched it again after picking up the BD at my neighborhood BB and liked it even more the second time around, despite the presence of the underwhelming Orlando Bloom. I agree that both Errol Flynn's and Kevin Costner's versions of Robin Hood were great fun. I don't expect Scott's version to be as good as those but hope to be reasonably well entertained. There is a lot to be said for going into a film with low expectations.

hey guys, i have a pretty legitimate question here....as some may know i have a ULS already and i have decided to move out of my current place into somewhere bigger. So my single would not be enough for me anymore, i was thinking would it make sense to buy an additional dual drive for $1999 OR a single ULS and an MBM mid bass module for $1299+$499???? would i get more chest pounding slam with option 1(3 ULS-15s) or option 2(dual drive and MBM)??? let's see what everyone has to say.....

How big is the room and is it open to the rest of the home?

the entire room is about 18'x25'x9' and has a 10'x10' kitchen attached, so that is about 4900^3 ft to fill.......

it appears to me as when everyone likes earth shaking bass i prefer the chest pounding mid bass that you get from gunshots and stuff like that.

I would recommend the single ULS-15 + a MBM. IIRC you have monitor speakers right? So they do not go as low as floorstanders and you would get a benefit from the MBM.

Kimwyn, the MBM-12 is a pretty cool piece of equipment and plenty fun to integrate into a set-up.

Another option to throw out there, within your budget, is a pair of VTF-3 MK3s; which are on sale right now.

^^^thanks for your responses WTF but i want to keep it the sealed way, i am not too fond of ported subwoofers.

thanks Al. i have Paradigm S4s, and i definitely would not consider those monitor speakers. i want to see what Pete has to say on this topic.

why would you recommend this??? is it because the integration of 3 subs is very difficult? is 3 ULS overkill for the room? will i get what i am looking for with that option????

Pete would be your best source. The reason I recommended the MBM was your S4s only have a 7" diameter woofer. And while the S4s are no slouch in the lower mid bass octaves they still are only a 7" diameter woofer. The MBM would intergrate well with the S4s to fill in the 50-100 hz range and would make it seem like you have 12" diameter woofers instead of 7" (hence increased mid bass slam). Then since you already have 1 ULS-15 adding the second one would enforce the VLF frequencies in the larger room. You did ask for recommendations. I provided what I thought would work best. Remember I only have a dual drive system in a 10,000 + ^3 room supplemented by two Velodynes. The Velos act as MBMs in my situation.

But if you want 3 ULS-15s by all means go 4 it.

Kinda interested in the response also. I have an all sealed setup (speakers and a single uls-15) and have thought about introducing a ported mid range sub to help with the high end sub range in about the same size room (4900 cu feet). Just feels dirty to add a ported sub to a sealed room is all.

Hello Jack my friend. long time no see. The new MBM-12 MK2 from the HSU web site:

Quote:
We are proud to introduce the brand new MBM-12 MK2 mid-bass module. This second generation model features higher quality finish options, in addition to brand new ‘Sealed’ and ‘Ported’ variable tuning operating modes. The ‘Sealed’ mode is ideal for those looking for the best possible integration with the true subwoofer, while the ‘Ported’ mode is ideal for those looking for the highest possible mid-bass headroom. The MBM-12 MK2 gives users the option to choose one operating mode or the other to fit their needs in virtually any music or home theater
application.

Hi Kimwyn,

Do you know what are the room dimensions (HxWxD, including openings to other areas) of your new space?

In general, for relatively a large volume of space, my preference is to first add a second identical true subwoofer, because one will need as much deep bass headroom as possible. Then, further down the road, add mid-bass module(s) (running in 'Sealed' mode with a ULS system) to further enhance the system. For small to moderately sized rooms (say, less than 4000 ft^3 including the volume of openings to other areas), I would first add a mid-bass module and then add a second identical true subwoofer.

Sincerely,

Pete - Hsu Research

Thanks for the clarification Al and Kimwyn! Starting with one ULS, I would add one ULS and one MBM. Put the ULS's in a corner(s) furthest away from the kitchen opening, and place the MBM close to the main listening position.

Sincerely,

Pete - Hsu Research

LOL Pete, but isn't that what I said? I kid no really I kid. I have had the dual drive now for over a year and me and Pete still talk every once in awhile.

So I kinda knew that Kimwyn wanted a dual drive anyway and I was figuring since Kmwyn lives in Barbados you might as well have them both delivered at the same time. Right Kim?

Love the ULS...kudos to Pete and his crew. No dual-drive yet but it's just a matter of time.

Hey Kimwyn when you get a chance watch Max Payne. I re-watched this last weekend and was amazed again at the LFE in this movie.

How about a single ULS in a 1400 cubic foot room? From a PB12-NSD, how would this fare? I also do a lot of movie watching.
