May have bought WRONG SUB?
I have been "upgrading" my HT Speakers [on a budget] - last thing to upgrade was my SUB, I had been and am using a SONY SA-WM250, which is only an 8" sub, all this time I thought it was a 10".
I live in a older Mobile Home Park where our homes are pretty close together and have been concerned already about my "booms" from the Sony sub [sometimes]..........I researched "forever" it seems and was going to go with the BIC 1020 because reviewers were so high on it and most felt it put out ALOT of BOOM and is all they ever needed. BUT I got caught up in the "a 12"er is only way to go" way of thinking, splurged and today a NEW BIC H-100ll 12" SUB arrives. 2nd Thoughts before I even cut open the box..........did I make a mistake, is this definitely overkill?
As I watched movies last night I couldn't help but notice my little 8" SUB rocking the place and knowing my neighbor can hear that bass thru these thin walls...........started thinking about what this new 12" SUB will do??? Do you think by playing with crossover and volume controls of the 12"er that I can keep the larger sub from becoming neighborhood nuisance?
I am trying to decide - - - maybe I should just SELL already the new 12" BIC before I even unbox it and use part of the $ to get the BC 1020 - or would I still be in the same boat with it?
