Jjackrash- Thank you as well. I have been writing back and forth with Nathan, and have looked at the Seaton options as well. I just get the idea that the Subm Hp doesn't quite match up with the Caps...I may be wrong, just from the threads I have read, it seems that way. It is certainly a little less expensive and would take up a little less space. The biggest thing that has scared me off is the fact that more than once, I have read about people adding a third or fourth subm...I have no seen this with the Cap as much. Thoughts??
I didn't have the luxury of comparing these top subs before I bought my SubM, so I can't really give you a comparison, I had to make my decision based solely on what I read. What I will say is, I have an open 15' x 50' x 8' room that is open to the rest of the house, and I rarely, if ever, get to listen to my rig at reference levels because it would drive everyone else out of that room. A few weeks ago when my wife was away with the boy I watched Transformers, Dark Side of the Moon at reference level and, frankly, it was over the top. I just couldn't do that to myself that often.
Also, where I think the SubM really shines is how it just blends in with the rest of the system, especially on music or when a movie has a classical score. You don't get that distracting "rumble" you get from lessor subs and it really stays in the background until the scene calls for it, then it punches you in the face. It is really hard to describe how clean it sounds. I just can't say enough good things about this sub, but, again, I did not have the luxury of comparing it to the other big boys being discussed here and I am sure that you will be happy with whatever you decide based on the choices you are considering.
One thing to keep in mind is that some of the members here are truly bass junkies and run multiple big subs sometimes 10db's hot.
I frankly have a hard time believing that two SubM's in your room wouldn't please all but the most addicted bass junkie, and I would bet a dollar to a dime that two would drive most normal people out of the room running at or near max output.
Good luck, and have fun shopping!
