That area is 19 feet wide, 17 feet long, and 10 feet high which is just over 3200 cubic feet excluding areas outside the sitting area. The outside sitting area would probably be another 2000 or 3000 cubic feet.
Based off my budget and the recommendations from the kind people on these forums, I purchased the Rythmik LV12R. I just hooked up the sub with my speakers and so far I am extremely unhappy with the bass. I have a Denon E300 and did the microphone calibration. I have yet to do the "subwoofer crawl", and was hoping for maybe some advice or some place I should look for better bass.
I'm looking for the heavy bass sound. Like when I fire a gun in a video game or listen to rap music. Is this possible with the subwoofer and my listening area?
Edit: I had a database error and now there is a double post :\
Audessey usually sets the bass on the low side. What are the settings on your AVR? In that size area it should be set pretty close to zero and the gain on your sub should need to be pretty high as well.
That said, the LVR12 is not going to give you chest slamming bass in 6000^ft.
Find the best location for the sub then rerun audessey then up the bass from there.
Then return your LVR12 for a pair of FV15HPs.
