Down the road I will be moving...hoping they will still hold up in a larger room...up to 2600 cu feet good, right? I don't listen real loudly with peaks around 90 db.

For "normal" people like me, a pair of L12s in a 2600 cu ft room is more than enough. I do really care about my hearing because it is my source of income and I know you care about yours as well so yes, a pair of L12s is plenty.

The only reason I have a LVX12 in my bedroom is for customers to come and audition it. I also have a L22 under my desk that I use for near field setup. Both of them are overkill for the task they were assigned. All the subwoofers I have in my home are available for local customers to come and audition and that's the only reason I have 4 subwoofers in my 710 sf apt.

Haha that is awesome. Does Brian have a similar setup? Or do you have audition space in the shop? I may be coming down to Austin for a Tabeau Conference in November. Maybe i'll stop by then to say hi.

Just so you know, Brian is in Austin and I'm in Houston (180 miles distance). We don't have a demo room in our shop but if you are local you can take the subwoofer with you and audition it at your home. If you are just visiting Austin, you can call Brian and schedule an audition in his home. He has a similar setup as mine but he can take any subwoofer to his place for the customer to audition. If you come to visit to Houston, then feel free to give me call and we can schedule an audition as well. I had last week a customer coming to audition the pair of F12SEs I have here and he got really impressed. He has amazing equipment in his house, mostly vintage McIntosh pre amps and amps, Wyred4 Sound DAC, Golden Ear Triton 5 speakers but in a really bad room, so bad that he can't hear dialogs coming out of the speakers. Next Friday he is bringing his speakers and some equipment to my place to listen to them and hear the difference between a non treated room like his room and an acoustically treated room like mine. I recommended him to not buy any subwoofer until his room is acoustically treated with GIK or ATS acoustic panels.

Ah gotcha - didn't realize you were in Houston. Well - if I did want to audition anything, it would be one of the new subs, but not sure they would be ready to demo by early November, and I would feel bad asking Brian to lug one to his house!

My FV15HP sometimes make a pop sound from a cold start while on Auto, is this normal or damaging?. Also I swear that I saw the light turn green, red then green again when the pop sounds occured.

Yes, and It has happened before but it's random, for me it's not a click it's a pop sound. The same sound you would get when you sync the minidsp unit when the sub is on. To be clear I don't have the minidsp in the chain. I know what that click sounds is like but this one wasn't like that.
