If they are setup improperly and phase cancels each other out. For one.

Given proper placement of course

Come on, who was a going to go dual sub without at least some sort of correction software? I am assuming that the person who installs dual subs has at least an inkling. If not, of course there is probably no noticeable improvement.

So what you're saying is 8 subs in a room will always sound better than 4? Because....
McStyvie's Avatar McStyvie 12:20 PM 03-09-2014
Are we talking 8 vs 4 here!? Four should be enough for most rooms.

Define better. Will 8x18" sealed subs sound better in a room than four? There are enough members here Who will say unequivocally yes. The graphs prove it too.
If you have never had or heard multiple subs then you cannot really participate in this conversation.

Ok so I have you one scenario you asked for and you can't accept it. What was the point of this exercise

I accept it Brian, but adding additional subs when you do not take the time to place one or the both properly is an expensive band aid which may or may not work.
I improperly assumed proper placement. My bad.

It could be said that multiple subwoofers often improve the sound and response in room, and I would even go so far as to say "multiple subwoofers *can* be set up in rooms to perform better than a single." This is most certainly not an automatic conclusion.

Correction software cannot move subwoofers from less than ideal or non-complimentary locations. The qualification required is that measurements are taken in room. Without measurements, you're guessing and assuming. A great example is comparing 1 subwoofer in a front corner vs. two along the front wall, be it the corners or flanking the center or display. In most laterally symmetric rooms, the differences are rather small and at best make things symmetric left-to-right across a couch. While some get lucky, in most closed rooms the interaction with the length of the room is the trickiest to contend with and makes for the strongest variation in the response. Even going from 1 to 4 subwoofers has no change on this issue if they are all placed across the front of the room.

Talking with many enthusiasts and customers confirms this is not a widely understood reality, so be mindful of blanket statements about what is "always" better or worse. About the only real absolute in audio is that there are always exceptions. wink.gif

Enjoyed watching HomeFront and Out Of The Furnace last night. Entertaining movie with some awesome mid bass.

Also a note for those that are interested, Dredd 3D Blu-ray is on sale at Best Buy for $6.99

Understood. Let us say, it is hard to believe that two or more properly placed subs would not outperform a Single properly or improperly placed sub.

Sure, but readers should understand that the "properly placed" qualifier requires actual measurements rather than the blind trust in an automagic EQ system.

That's why you calibrate. A calibrated system with multiple subs will not overpower the mains.

Ok, help me out with some Blu Rays/scenes to test out my new sub.  I have an XS30 arriving this week, and specifically want to demo some material with plenty of 10-20 Hz stuff in it.  My old sub played fairly strong down to 16 Hz, so scenes that play lower than this are what I am looking for.  I currently have WotW for the pod scene, Cloverfield, all of the LotR movies.  I plan on grabbing OHF for the monument scene.  The Incredible Hulk has been mentioned so might grab that one too.

 

I know there is a huge list of four and five star just hoping for some specific suggestions for scenes that play especially low.

 

Thanks.

Pulse - server scene near the end, 20hz pulsating.

World War Z- grenade scene about halfway into the movie.

OOh that sounds perfect...thanks!!  I am not sure quite how low I will go, will probly do some REW sweeps to mess with phase before I use it, so I should be able to tell how low it goes.  Also going to experiment with closing my two sets of french doors to see if that changes anything.

Found this in the mail yesterday.



Lots of honest < 10Hz content in the USA Cut, and greater level, though 3dB less average dynamics. smile.gif

Don't let anybody tell you that the kung fu in this one is good. That sauce is pretty weak overall compared to your traditional KFC movies. Lots of high Chi melodrama.

Wow.. Well, no wonder! I just finished watching this a few hours ago. This movie has lots of scene that dig low. And at times my amps clipping lights was coming on. lol..

The "Grandmaster" was good stuff! I loved the way they filmed the fight scenes and the audio was top notch!

@ nube did you measure both the DTS MA & or the DD 5.1 tracks?
