My fun SVS story for the week, just me babling. Feel free to ignore me folks
Well I started with two SVS SB-12NSD's in the front of the room, between my L and R, and outside my center console.
At first I was impressed with the sound, but the more I had time to sit with the room, this feeling slowly degraded. The "smack you in the chest" feeling was not there, and some frequencies did not seem defined (anything really deep).
So off I went to do the sub crawl.
The 1st sub went to the far Left of the room, in the front corner.
The 2nd sub, went behind the couch, to the right rear of the room.
I did a ton of frequency sweeps and used the best mic I had (my ear).
After doing 2 second, 25hz-80hz swings I found the baseline area.
Then did constant tones, to define the area.
The front sub had GREAT response from 30hz to 50hz, but then a significant fall off. Distorting your voice when you talk type loud.
In this location from 50hz+, the output sucked, it's a major fall off
The rear sub had GREAT response from around 45hz, till 80hz, then it get peaky. Distorting your voice when you talk type loud.
In this location From 20-35hz, the output sucks, it's a major fall off
I hoping the two sub locations compliment each-other and allow for a overall smooth curve.
Is this pretty common for folks to get this type of result. Maybe I'm asking too much from the SB12's, and need to go PB13ultras??
I couldn't find a location in the room, even with the two subs, that had any kind of significant volume at 20-25hz
