Yes, Not fun & no room to move the SVS...
BTW, I doubled down on the F112's
After I get them, I'll come back with an update.
So I have been with my pair of F112's for over 2 months. In that time I have also changed my micro fiber sofa to a leather sofa.
After checking best sub placement... I placed them facing each other just in front of my couch about 1 feet away from each end.
Here is my experience
1. Having dual subs, I'm no longer able to localize subs. Previously when I had 1 sub I would be able to localize them.
2. When watching movies... it is tremendous when explosions occurr. I think my whole living room shakes... I feel bad for my neighbors... But they never complain
3. When I auditioned a single F112 at the dealer I felt 2 things... Shock waves and vibrations on their leather sofa. I don't feel shock waves but do feel the vibrations on my leather sofa when explosions occur. When I do move sub closest to MLP to front the vibration is lessened but I still feel a slight vibration from the left sub. I don't know if that's a good thing or not. I suppose its more of a preferrence ? I'm curious if other users think about this... I'm on the fence... sometimes I think its good sometimes its a bit of annoying...
4. Using XTZ Analyzer, I definitely get a better frequency response too.
In general, I'm very pleased with dual subs... Previously I owned B&W ASW10CM & SVS PB12+ and none are close to these dual subs. Obviously if I had dual sub on either B&W & SVS I could be saying the same... In general I can see why people recommend dual subs...
Just a bit concerned with the vibrations... not sure if this is a good thing or not.
