Alright guys, after way too much research, reading of internet forums and hand-wringing, I placed an order for 2 x LV12Rs. Although I had my eye on a couple LVX15s, with TX sales tax factored in the price was really pushing it without having heard any of the subs I've been researching.
Here's the thing... I need a baseline. I'll be finishing my HT room this weekend, and I just have no idea what is enough vs overkill for my sealed 2500 cu ft of space. Based on my wife & kids' somewhat low tolerance for high volume, I'm convinced the LV12R's will be adequate 98% of the time... it's that other 2% I just don't know about... maybe they will and maybe the won't. If I'm left unsatisfied, I have options:
- Split them up and move them to other rooms (I have 2 more rooms that will soon have multi-channel audio and will also need a sub)
- Talk to Enrico / Brian about how to integrate more subs into my room and have them play nice with the LV12R's. I'm thinking these could be stacked on top of some of Rythmik's bigger subs in the back rear corners (only place my room will accommodate the subs) if needed, and cable them such that the AVR sees each stack as one sub.
- Rent a truck, drive the 3 hours to Austin and exchange with a couple FV15HPs (would save on shipping both ways).
Let the journey begin!
