Sub response - basement vs. main floor
I currently have what I would think would be a mid-level sub (300 watts 12") in my main floor family room which is carpeted flooring on plywood subfloor. It produces amazing feel in the seats.
However it also spreads through the rest of the house and I'm currently planning a dedicated theater in the basement on a concrete slab with a sand-filled stage, corner bass traps and a bit of acoustic treatments on the walls.
For anyone that's gone through a similar transition, how much of your bass feeling do you lose in the basement theater compared to your main floor with the same sub?
