I found CEA-2010 measurements for the SVS SB12
, does anyone have or know where I can find similar measurements for the other candidates? (Epik Legend, NHT b-12d, or RSL 10" Speedwoofer)
I did some digging, looks like real world test are hard to come by, but here are summarized results i found either through mfr's spec or magazine review:Epik legend, from website
Frequency response: 20-200Hz +/- 3.5 dB, does this mean = -3.5 dB @ 20Hz on the low end and 200Hz on the high end? Kinda useless since iEpik doesn't give output measurements.NHT B-12d, from website
Frequency response: -3dB 27Hz-130Hz, -6dB 25Hz, -10dB 23Hz
Peak output @1M: 120dB @ 58Hz, 115dB @ 40hz, 112dB @ 30Hz.
So to get output @2M, do I subtract 6dB from the 1M measurement above?RSL Speedwoofer 10
From website: Frequency response: 24-180Hz +/- 3dB
From home theater magazine
: "close-miked response, normalized to the level @ 80Hz, lower -3dB is 34 Hz, -6dB is 30 Hz and upper -3dB is 103 Hz." What is close-miked?
: 30 - 120kHz +/- 3dB. Bass output (CEA-2010 std): 20-31.5Hz = 108.0 dB and 40-63Hz = 117.9 dB.
Based upon these #, is the RSL louder than the NHT B-12d? Also, I found the test data for the Epik Empire here
. The RSL is just as loud and low as the empire from 20-63 hz
Since RSL offers no risk 30 days in home trial, I probably will just pick one up after I get my soundbar and avr setup.
