I am looking to augment (or replace) my 11 year old Velodyne FSR-18. While it goes plenty low for me, it is pretty easy for it to go into limiting when trying to keep up with the mains (Klipschorns). I am looking at eD and Epik offerings, and of course, the Submersive. The system is almost 100% HT, but performance on Blu Ray music concerts is important.
I suppose I am correct in assuming that the Submersive would have significant more output than the FSR-18, correct? And I assume that extension below 20 Hz would be similar, correct? Would transient response be similar to the Velo? That is one thing that concerns me about ported designs.
By the way, the room is 12x20x8 with LOTS of bass trapping (7 GIK Monsters plus suspended ceiling with R30 above).
Thanks for your opinions.
