I'd definately appreciate your followup after you hear/buy a Paradigm.
I just (finally) got my PW2200 yesterday, in the Rosenut finish. Based on other posts on this forum, and my own calibration, I have the settings as follows:
- all speakers set to small, cross over set to 80 hz.
- Phase Control set at about 10:30
- Cross over at 150 (all the way to the right)
- Volume at about 10:30
Sub is located in the corner, facing the listening area, 6 inches from the back wall and left side wall (about 2 feet from the Sammy HLN617W TV).
I know a lot of people like the HSU and SVS subs, but if your Canadian, and your looking for a sub, and your room dimensions are similar, GET THIS SUB.
It's brand new, so it has some breaking in to do. I watched Finding Nemo first and it was amazing. Darla rapping on the glass, the whale, the submarine, the explosions, all those scenes shook the couch, book case, cd's, people, etc. You can actually 'feel' the air pressure change when a powerful LFE happens, and it just doen't kick you in the chest, it kicks you everywhere!
For music, the sub sounds very nice as well. You can hear the bass, feel it in some spots, but it by no means overwhelms you like the LFE can do on movie DVD's. In comparison, my old cheap Yamaha sub either boomed uncontrollably for everything, or you couldn't hear it all.
Thanks again to all the forum members for all your posts on Sub's, including settings, what to watch, er, listen for, room postioning, etc. And a special thanks to 9000rpm in Cowtown (nice of you to help an Edmonton boy - just don't tell anyone :) ) for recommending the sub to me and to Dan711 for the comparison with the SVS.
Happy New Year everyone!!
