I am starting this thread to continue this thread, http://www.avsforum.com/t/1413234/my-upgrade-to-the-ken-kreisel-mx-5000-mk3-subs
, which were unfortunately closed before any measurements were posted.
I have just read throught the whole thread, and I'm not exactly impressed by how it went. I do of course agree that when a claim is made, evidence should be provided. So I'm starting this one, and I'm providing some measurements
I see some claims that you should have at least 100dB @ 10hz for it to be noticeably. That may very well be true, and I'll try to provide some measurements at that level as soon as possible. I'm sorry if anyone believes that FRs below that level is useless, but I still think it gives an indication of how the subs perform.
So, to my setup. I'm currently running a dual Ken Kreisel MX-5000mk3 / DXD-12012 config, not stacked. The rest is probably not that interesting in this case, but the fronts are Adam Audio Gamma and Center.
My temporary listening room is 4,2 x 4,2 meters and 2,4 meters between floor/ceiling.
A picture of the setup:
In the last thread there was a claim that the KKs went straight down to 10 hz. Here is my frequency response in my room. Measured are subs only, not fronts.
- M-Audio Mobile Pre USB calibrated
- Behringer ECM8000 with correction file from Cross Spectrum calibration lab
I use the Anti-Mode Cinema room-correction on the subs, which does a pretty good job. There is no doubt these subs also sound really good, both for music and movie use. I think these will stick with me for a long time.
Now, it would have been nice to continue this discussion now that some measurements has been posted
