Do you think this will work as PEQ for the LMS Ultra 5400?
It will work just fine; but the lowest HPF you can set will be 20Hz on this unit. But a lot of people around here circumvent it by applying a combination of shelf and other filters.
Crown XTi 1002 can't drive LMS 5400 to full potential; same goes for Berry ep2000. iNuke 6000 DSP and EP4000 will pretty much be the ticket. If you go for iNuke 6000 DSP, it has very powerful signal processing. Will save you money and you won't need fbq1000.
History is written by those who have hanged heroes ...
if you want more midbass then change the entire subsystem. mixing ported with sealed will present a new set of issues in its own. Some have done it successfully but I wouldnt do it.
With the budget you listed, I would sell the Pluses and pick up a pair Rythmik F25's, Seaton F2's, or JTR S2's. Any of these options would Out class those SVS offerings everywhere in the FR and have tremendous amounts of mid-bass slam.
Just would like to ask your recommended subwoofers to hadle those chest pounding bass. I would like to feel those gun shots, explosions, etc on the chest, haha...
The frequency bandwidth where that occurs is primarily from 40 to 70Hz, which any good subwoofer has no problem with. If your subs are adequate in the deep lows they should be more than adequate an octave higher. There's no need to have a separate speaker to handle that bandwidth. The key to feeling those frequencies is volume, as in at least 105dB at the listening position. I can see no reason why your current subs wouldn't deliver that, unless your seating position is 30 feet away, or you don't have the subs properly placed to smooth room modes, or not correctly EQ'd to deliver the goods. OTOH if you're only running at moderate volume levels you're not going to get chest pounding. Real gunshots and explosions don't occur at 85dB.
Just got an awesome deal on a pre-owned JL Fathom F212...
Less than the price of a brandnew F113!!!
Decided to take the plunge
Also sold my dual SVS PC12plus and now saving up for the PC13-Ultra, hopefully next year
