These enclosures are stout. I damn near decided to put all of my equipment on them. Not that equipment is heavy, the point is the cabinets are so inert that little vibration makes it through. I myself am a stout 210 pounder and I jump up and down on them all the time (I'm in the construction phase and they make good stools).

Any thoughts on the best way to use Audyssey Multi EQ with 3 subs? I will probably use REW once I get settled into the new house. I will have NHT Classic 3's for LR and the Classic 3 CC for the center and Classic 2's for surrounds.
Congrats on your new subs! Sorry, I have not a clue on your other questions.

Haven't heard from him yet. Is it a major issue or minor?
Used approx. for 1-1/2 hrs total at very low levels.
Thanks for any advice
Sorry to hear of your sitchuation. As others have said worst case it's the amp and even better yet it's something simple. Why don't you pop the amp off (unplug it first!) and see if anything is obvious? A disconnected wire? Unscrew the woofer and see if the wires are connected as they should be. Might be something that simple.
About a year ago I bought I home theater in a box type setup for my home gym. Got it off Craig's list. Tested it out and all worked great. Got it home and the sub didn't work. Turned out the wire on the subs positive connection had slid off. It happens all the time.
In any event I hope it's sooner than later for you that you get it working.

Now there might be someone considering a Paradigm Signature Sub 2 and then realizes "yeah for less money I can get two Triax's"
Really in the end people just have to figure out what they are willing to spend and buy the best they can within their budget IMO. And I certainly wasn't trying to suggest Jim's XS15's were lesser subs compared to what I have
, because that was all he was comfortable with getting so I say good for him. I'm glad in loves his XS15's, but at the same time I think that the dual XS30's are worth the extra money.
YOU DIRT BAG! LOL...
I'm sorry if I implied anything like that. I did not get that impression from you one bit.
