So I have a B&W ASW-600 - is it beneficial to enable THX UltraS2 mode in AVR?

Description: Active closed-box
Amplifier power output: 150W continuous
Frequency range(-6dB): 22Hz and 180Hz Dimension:
H 14.4” W 14.4” D 17.7”
Frequency response(±3dB): 26Hz and 150Hz

//Onkyo 608 - B&W LCR 60 S3 Center - B&W DM 602 S3 Fronts - TSC TSS & Phase Tech DST Surrounds - B&W ASW600 S3 Subwoofer//
120''+ Screen size club.

"At 20 bits, you are on the verge of dynamic range covering fly-farts-at-20-feet to intolerable pain. Really, what more could we need?"

You have control of the subwoofer output, both in the receiver, and also on the subwoofer. So, if you want to use THX mode, just watch out not to overdrive your subwoofer.

THX enthusiasts would be thinking about upgrading your subs to something much more dynamic with much greater deep bass like a pair of Power Sound Audio XV15's

This sub is already overpowering in my room. its quite a powerhouse for a 10". when I enable thx s2 it actually sounds more flat and even. Read: less volume.

Flat and even is a desirable trait. One thing you would notice by upgrading to one the internet direct brands like SVS which are known to have a very flat response, no more booming one note sounds.

And if you're an action movie fan or just a movie fan you're missing out on a whole octave of bass that really makes a big difference in many movies.

Klipsch RF-62II, RC-500, RS-400, SVS PC12+,
Def Tech SC8000
Harman Kardon AVR 1600
PS3, Apple TV, Sharp 70" Qattron
