I went with this package -http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...y52cSYOUBkIc8g
and added the HSU STF2
The room is about 20x12 and 9 feet tall. The whole apartment is about 700 square feet.
I have the subwoofer halfway up.
What I am using the sub for is listening to music. I have the music streaming through apple TV from my iPhone and really think that the bass isn't what I was hoping for. I have the subwoofer in the corner in the front left corner next to the TV and when you stand about 10 feet to the right of it still near the front of the room the bass is awesome. But when I move out more into the middle or so it's crappy again.
Also, there is a huge balcony outside which is 15 feet to the right of the corner and when out on the balcony the subwoofer again sounds great and extra loud, but in the main middle of the room is seriously lacking.
If I turn the volume on the subwoofer past half then it just sounds boomy and I can tell its bottoming out and doesn't sound good or hit at all.
I also bought the subdude HD and have that underneath.
For me, 400$ for a sub was around the best that I could afford so I am not really too happy with my purchase. Can you guys perhaps help me figure out a better place to put it or change settings?
I am listening to hip hop and rap BTW. For example, IDK what kind of subwoofer my neighbor has but I can hear it in my apartment through the walls. If I have mine as loud as I can without it booming out and go stand in the hall I can barely hear it standing right by my door. Now, I am not trying to be annoying to the neighbors but I want or thought it would be louder. I used to have a Alpine type X 15 inch with a 1000 watt amp, now THAT was loud...
Thanks i really appreciate it any and all help!
