Yes, that's what I'm doing. What you're missing, Newegg was out of stock regarding this sub so I'm being thoughtful and letting folks here know that it's back in stock. FYI, it's not considered nice to punch on the thoughtfulness of a message.

I would take that as a "thanks Newegg for being douche canoes" as opposed to thanks for posting it's back in stock. I for one, appreciate the update.

Congrats as I know you're going be very happy with this sub. I'm envious of your purchase as I'm having to hold out due to saving for a more expensive sub and until I make my purchase, I'm envious of all who purchase this sub.

First post on AVS though I've lurked here for some time. I just ordered one as well based heavily on the positive things I have read on this forum about this sub at this price point.

I can't say I've ever read a discouraging word about this sub.

I have to wait til after midnight to order a second one. That's when my play money retirement check will hit my bank account. I'm afraid
they will be out of stock again after the shark frenzy.

Hopefully they are good. I ordered two right before I posted this, they are still in stock so looks like there hasn't been a HUGE frenzy, either that or they had a huge delivery of them.

Well I was about to pull the trigger when I got home. I'm way too indecisive for all this. I'll take it as a sign and order a couple Daytons before they are in-stock again and tempt me further.

I checked here after I received the price alert email from Newegg. When they sold out over Thanksgiving I decided if they got more and offered the same 299 price I was going to order. I did receive a shipping notification so I think I managed to get in on this group! I am putting together my first Home Theater and I will be pairing the sub with the Pioneer Andrew Jones 5.0 speakers. Cant wait to get the all the parts assembled and give them a try. I'm thinking it will not be a bad first Home Theater 5.1 system smile.gif Reading the reviews of the Pioneer speakers the sub-woofer seemed to get the least praise so I think the Klipsch will be a nice upgrade.

mgrotel has basically the same setup but with 2 RWs and he seems to love it.

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!

Your room size is fairly close to mine and a second sub really makes a difference. Go with two if you are able to. You can try one to see if you're satisfied first. If not, order a second.
My guess is you'll want a second one.

Hi All,

I just set up the following -

1. Energy 5.0 speakers
2. Denon 1913 AVR
3. Klipsch RW 12d

As others have stated on this thread, inititally I did get a small thump on the sub. But after I ran Audyssey again after fully setting things up quite a few times, it won't recognize the Sub at all! I have tried setting the volumes on the sub from -20 - 0db no luck! Here are my settings -

1. I set the Speakers to SMALL

2. Bass -
Subwoofer mode - LFE+Main
LPF - 120hz

3. Distances seemed fine on all the speakers, but it had 13ft on the Sub which was right next to the left speakers which were set to 8ft.

4. Test tone -
Front L - 0 db
Front R - +0.5 db
Center - -0.5 db
Surround R - +1.0 db
Surround L - 0.5 db
Sub Woofer - 6 db

5. Crossover
Front - 80 Hz
Center - 80 Hz
Surround - 80hz

On the Sub -
6. Volume - -23db
7. Phase 0
8. LFE off

I am concerned and I hope its not the sub itself...Because there was a point when I got the thumps! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Regards

Instead of LFE+Main try just LFE. You may be splitting the bass signal between your main speakers and the sub with your current setting.

Ok, so I just tried both - connected an iPod, the sub worked as well as with a different RCA cable. So it seems like that RCA cable was faulty! :s

Now for the tuning - I did the Audyssey calibration with LFE OFF, Phase at 0 and Volume at -15db on the Sub. Audyssey finally recognized the Sub!

Front L - + 2.0 db
Center - + 3.0 db
Front R - + 0.5 db
Surround R - +3.5 db
Surround L - 2.0 db
Subwoofer - - 6.0 db

Crossovers -
Individual
Front - 80 Hz
Center - 60 Hz
Surround - 80 Hz

The Sub is working on songs too, but not nearly recognizable unless I increase the volume to full on it.
