The worst thing I would have to say was waiting for it
. When you first get it and set it up, the amount of settings can be overwhelming. Rythmik gave documentation for the amp and of course the helpful people from Rythmik who post on this site as well as other users here. All the settings give you many ways to configure your sub. You have to basically figure out what setting works for your tastes and use of the sub.
As far as experiences, I have over 750 blu-rays so I can give you a quick list of my favorites:
- Tron Legacy: Is a subwoofer feast. It combines refined sound effects with brute force effects. The Grid scene and the Lightbike scene.
- Oblivion (same style as Tron Legacy, clean and forceful): The rope scene with the bass sweep is very nice.
- World War Z: The grenade scene with a bass sweep.
- Godzilla: MUTO emerging scene.
- Terminator Salvation: Gas station scene.
The only "negative" I have run across was in the film Dredd. There is a classroom scene where the sub was "flapping". This "flapping" is adjustable by changing settings, but since it was the only movie I noticed it on, I didn't change any settings.
I have mine setup in a 13x15 room using the 14 hz extension with high damping and rumble filter off. I have run into a lot of people into audio. And in regards to subs, I have run into the people who think loud with extension is the criteria for a sub. I am greedy. I want loud, with extension, and with clean accuracy. I did my research and read a few reviews and stalked this thread when this sub hit my radar during the sub quest. I guess that was why I got the best available from Rythmik at the time was I didn't want to wonder "what if". I can say from my experiences, I have no regrets. I am excited for you because I know that excitement that a new toy can bring. I hope you hear your impressions when you get it and if you need any assistance with tweaking, I am sure one of us here will be more than willing to help. I hope this helps you or perhaps adds to your waiting pain
