I have a sub-woofer (paradigm PS-1200), the bass seems pretty decent to me. Can someone please give me a basic rundown of why that 2nd sub makes such a big difference? It can't just be because of increased bass, can it? My sub-woofer can rattle my entire building already, and i find myself turning the bass down often. Is this more or less a preference thing, like some people just love the visceral effect of bass?

Thanks,
Jason

This is a pretty common question. If you go to the advance search engine, use title search only. Limit search words to one or two. In this case, do separate searches using "dual", "2nd" and "second" . I also use the "at least:" response option or +5 or more. You'll find dozens of threads addressing this topic.

Here's one of the threads that came up using "dual" in title with at least 10 responses:

Check out these articles that ran in Sound and Vision
Why you need four subwoofers
Subwoofers 4,2, or 1

When in comes to audio there are seldom right and wrong answers.  The opinions of "experts" are just that, and should be used as a suggestion only.  Remember at the end of the day it is your money, your system, and you will need to listen to it.
