Probably not that quick. I'm working on the first draft of something else now, and I'll be traveling for a week in June, so my time will be a bit limited. I do have it hooked and running though, so I have started jotting down some notes at least.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

I'll post some pics this weekend. Hopefully my wife lets me move them around.

We are moving in next 60days. My back has been hurting a lot!! So I might just leave them in the boxes. 600lbs of subs.

What kind of spl do 6 FV15HP's produce at 20Hz and 10Hz?

What is your in room -3dB point with 1 port 14Hz high damping rumble filter off?

Curious...

Looking forward to the review. Especially because I don't recall you reviewing a large ported Rythmik unless I missed something.

Are you a reviewer of subs/speakers? Or is the FV18 for personal use? Just wondering based on your posts about the FV18.

Don't have all 6 together yet but I'll let you know. Even know I'll never run them at 14/high with rumble filter off.

I guess the VSX-44 was setting phase the wrong way because after doing that the loud muffled boominess is all but gone! I'm left with the clean punchy articulate rumble bass. Will have to watch more content but I can already tell it's much improved.
Glad to hear it is improved. This is with or without the minidsp? Setting the sub to 60hz will loose some of the good LFE content above it, I am not sure I want to do that myself.

He Reviewed the Salk/Rythmik sub, which is very close in performance to the FV15HP:

http://www.hometheatershack.com/foru...er-review.html

He also reviewed the L12R, which could be a big ported sub (depending on what you think "Big" is):

http://www.hometheatershack.com/foru...er-review.html

He also reviewed the sealed F8 and E15hp:

http://www.hometheatershack.com/foru...f8-review.html

Rythmik E15 vs SVS SB13 Ultra

That's all that I know of in terms of Rythmik. I follow his reviews closely, since I am planning a dedicated theater room very close to the size of his room and he goes through things thouroughly with both music and movies: output, impact, detail, etc. I'm looking forward to reading his thoughts on the new FV18.

Thank you for the kind words, and the links to my Rythmik articles! You hit them all - that's the full catalog.

I missed that first one; have read the rest, especially the LV12R one, since I got that largely because of the review and how it outperformed the SVS PB-1000/SB-1000 reviews by him.

Yeah, the LV12R is pretty big, more than twice the L12/F12 but the 15 and 18 ported models are truly huge and 2-3x the weight.
