Talked to Tom and he assured me it is nothing to worry about from a performance perspective. Since it is downward firing I won't see it anyway. Thanks to all who chimed in.

Yep...both are facing the nearest side wall.

Nothing like the theaters that win the Home Theater of the month here on AVS, but it suits my needs (and budget, lol) and fulfills my craving for a/v/ nirvana.

Oh yeah! My v1500 has a new best friend residing behind my couch! Just waiting on 25 foot sub cable and it'll be up and running!

You have no speakers for another 4 days and a 15V sitting there all silent and lonely?! Aaaah, you must be a patient person. And I used similar reasoning with my fiance when buying the V1800 by telling her it's half the size of the one I was going to get, so she should be proud of my willingness to compromise.

brahman12 ,
I was trying to vision this as well, so thanks for the visual. I have both of the subs up front facing me, but may turn them tonight to the side wall to see how things shake up. The V3600 is just behind the couch(MLP) facing the middle of the room, so I may have that one do an about face. Then I renting 13 hours tonight, so I hope to feel the impact.
Thanks.

But I am not patient! I changed the UPS delivery to store pick up at their main hub which is right by my work. I am optimistically hoping they will be available Friday then...also think I decided I am going to go to Best Buy on the way home and pick up some JBL bookshelfs so I can at least listen to the sub (and then return the speakers later). The waiting is killing me!

I have my front sub facing the front wall I have my rear sub in the corner facing the side wall.

I'll get some pics up. I am using a house curve on the Anti mode.

absolute bass nirvana. Dual V3600i's and the Anti Mode dual core 2.0...Best 4k I spent on home theater in 25 years of being in the hobby.

I got my Mega Pop popcorn packs delivered today so it will be movie night tonight!

Any suggestions?

I thought the dust caps were smooth? Atleast they were on the lab15 drivers I swapped put when doing the SE upgrade.

Fwiw Microfiber towels do not leave lint...I am a detail guy.

Thanks for the pictures! I just got a popcorn machine for my little theater on Fathers day, and it rocks! It adds to the whole movie watching experience.

^This. Lots of really great explosions and decent surround effects with tons of bullets whizzing around. There's one scene in particular I loved where a door explodes in slow motion, but the force is so extremely quick and dynamic it pressurized my large space so much so that I had to play it back a few more times. I watched it at -5mv I think.

Yes I pulled them out they are about 6 inches from the wall they are firing into.

Microfiber will indeed leave fibers, provided it's dragged against something with a texture of course (I do detailing on the side, and have for many years now). Do you detail for a living? I love doing that stuff, but I couldn't do it full time.

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

[QUOTE=subacabra;44925282]Oh yeah! My v1500 has a new best friend residing behind my couch! Just waiting on 25 foot sub cable and it'll be up and running!


I was going to suggest this cable (25') from Mediabridge, it's an excellent cable as far as sub (analog) cables go and the price is right. I also use the BJC cables but they get a little pricey (worth it) though. The MB connectors are high quality and really lock into the female RCA with no worries of coming loose, this sounds like another scenario that comes to mind....

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003FVX9FO...abridge+cables

@JimW , I really don't care for the micro cloth towels, my experience with them is that they seem to smear and build up static, maybe I'm using the wrong ones....

No not for a living just on the side.

I have not had any issues dusting off the drivers of my speakers with a microfiber. Anyhow the drivers in my subs have smooth inverted dust caps, but they might have changed since then. I do know what you are saying about the rough pulp cones, they snag any towel you try and clean them with.

Ok, so got the second sub hooked up and ran audyssey and here's my initial impressions.
Holy s**t is it loud! So loud in fact it's making the level meter on my baby monitor jump, and the mic for that is in his room upstairs lol
I'm not used to such tactile sensation from behind my couch, not that it's bad or anything but I did lower the level of that sub 1.5 db.
Overall very happy, tried out Fury Road, Force Awakens interrogation scene and currently Oblivion. The part where he lands in the stadium...holy guacamole! Had to lower it real quick!
I can't even imagine what some of you guy's systems with dual v3600's etc sound like!
Definitely another satisfied customer here

brahman12,
Holy Cow! I had the mv at -10 on 13 hours and I could feel the gun shots and RPG in my back That was an awesome flick! Then watched Tron with the oldest daughter, and oh boy does that flick have some great LFE as well!

Oledurt,
That Death Star is Outstanding! Well done effect!

That was a good sub workout movie, and had some pretty intense moments. Way more that I ever experienced, that is for sure.

Thanks guys! I am a Star Wars fan, and I have more of the art deco lights "breaking" out of my wall . Darth Vader greets you when you enter the room

I watched Interstellar tonight and the scene going into the black hole...OMFG. My vision seriously blurred

Sounds like you've got a new kidney kicker! How many cubes is your listening space, and do you feel your current bass needs are fulfilled?

I know there are a few people that have dual V3600 in medium to smallish sized rooms, so I can't quite wrap my head around that amount of bass in a home theater either. Reminds me of my first car that had a couple of very hard hitting 12" sealed subs in the trunk...sure was a fun ride! However, I can see the desire for that much sub power in larger rooms though.

After my second V1800, I plan to lay the PC12+ behind the couch. Hopefully I'll be able to blend it well enough so it's not localizable but still add some nearfield punch. Thanks for posting your impressions!
