ken,

I looked at the ED A3-300 & outlaw as well. I went with the LFM-1+ and have no regrets. I never had a chance to hear the ED, so I can't compare direct either but the outlaw is outstanding. I have yet to have anyone not be impressed by it for either music or movies.
best of luck.

Thanks for all the "Chest Bumps" on a good purchase.

It left Outlaw today and is now in Fed-Ex's hands. I am not sure if it will make it here by Friday (though im hoping). If it does there will be some hardcore calibrating and movie watching going on this weekend.

Never noticed this thread, thought I'd pop in, proud owner of the LFM1-EX here, hard to beat for the money. Nice and fast with music and can kick you right in the gut with movies, I'd recommend it to anyone.

Thanks for checking in Patrick.

Let's us know what it sounds like when you finally add the surrounds.

I know I'm terrible having all this sound equipment and only stereo I even just changed up the RB-81s I had for Energy RC-50s so I'm still at square one. It's mostly because of my tiny apartment and my love for music so I'm always going for better sound with movies coming in second. Even in stereo though movies with the Outlaw is It fills out my music nicely too and has no trouble blending in and keeping up with the speakers. Now I've got lonely RB-81s.. and a spare maranatz receiver, I'm thinking maybe another LFM-1 EX and I've got a killer PC setup

Would love to see pictures of that set-up. And yes, we are all bad influences! Keep it up guys.

Hello Fellow Owners,

I am now moving on from my earlier post talking about Max SPL with my two LFM-1+s. Now, I want to hear an "EQ version" in my theater room and have the ability to switch back and forth between "movie mode" and "music mode".

I DL the Room EQ Wizard (free) from that "other" forum and loaded it on to my desktop computer with a proper sound card. I ordered a Behringer Feedback Destroyer Pro (BFP) Model #DSP1124P ($100 from zzsounds.com) to be used as a PEQ. I ordered some misc. cables and such from monoprice.com for $20. You will also need a RS SPL Meter.

This took me the better part of two full days to accomplish the EQ....I'm a little slow. First, I never dreamed where my 2 subs ended up for a placement that is "EQ'able". I had a monster null at my LP until I moved both subs behind the LP. I have 1 sub in my back right corner and the second sub is located right behind my sofa against the back wall. They are located within 7' of each other.

Now, I have a couple of serious peaks after calibrating each sub to 75dB.
The REW software gave me the information to input into the BFP filters to tame the peaks and now I have some amazing "smooth" bass that I notice on my concert Blu-ray discs.

This really was an education for me and I will continue to tweak the set-up endlessly. If you love to tweak, this is an inexpensive way to enter the world of sub EQ.

Larry

Just a note to anyone on the fence, there is now a free shipping promotion on anything over $500 at Outlaw, which would of course include the LFM-1 EX. That saves almost $100 off the purchase.

As an aside, I ordered my EX about 2 weeks ago, so I called up to see if they would give me the promotion under the typical 30-day price protection, and interestingly, they wouldn'd do it. Outside of 30 days, I would totally understand it, but having ordered just 2 weeks ago, I found this unusual for an internet company. Kind of stings a little bit.

Anyway, for anyone who has appropriately procrastinated or just has better timing than me, this is a good deal...

That's lame, someone in this thread wanted a second LFM something like 40 days after buying the first and they gave him the discount.

Hi jeffrey r,

You might want to call or e-mail Scott at Outlaw Audio. That is what I did when I wanted to add another LFM-1+ after my initial order. Scott told me to call in and place the order with Jennifer. When I called, she initially said no, and then I told her about the e-mail from Scott. I was put on hold and a few minutes later, I received the discount for ordering a second sub.

I know this is a different scenario then yours, but it is worth a shot!

Good Luck,

Larry

I noticed during my B-stock crawl that Outlaw has discontinued the LFM-2. I wonder if is being redesgned or are they dropping the sallest of their subs permanently? Too bad..I was hoping to grab one someday...I guess we know why thye dropped the price to 199.00 for a while

Ok, now I'm really depressed. I just go my sub yesterday. I nearly canceled my order when I saw shipping was $65 and went with a ED instead. I will say that for the little I used the sub last night it BLEW ME AWAY! My other sub is a jbl e250p and man the upgrade was so amazing that I almost feel guilty selling the JBL; It should just be trashed I really didn't think I hear that much of a difference. Did I mention I really wish I could get my shipping cost back?

I did the same thing back in April when I purchased my 1st EX. Then 3 weeks later called Scott and ordered the 2nd one with the discount. He seems to be the one to deal with. I talked to him when I placed both orders.

Oh Hello Everyone,

I have been lurking and learning on here for the last couple of months while I put together my new HT. This seemed like a good spot to jump in. I have picked up quite a bit of useful information and I hope from time to time I can add something useful.

Thanks to all,
David

Hi nathanieljla,

I would e-mail Scott at Outlaw Audio and ask for the refund. You never know.

What model did you get? I would assume the EX?

No, actually the The LFM-1 Plus. I was trying to stick to around 500. That's kinda why the shipping seemed like such a stringer as it blew my 500 budget. I guess maybe the LFM+ wouldn't count for the 500+ free shipping cause it's 1 buck less

Good lord! I just watched Hot Fuzz with the LFM+. That movie is bass crazy! Good times. Just when I was "getting used to" my Plus, it once again amazes me.

It is also a funny movie to watch. Unlike Cloverfield. Has anyone watched Sean of the Dead? It is done by the same people. I am wondering if has the same bass.

Hey weverb,

The HD-DVD DD-EX Version of Shaun of the Dead is listed on DrPainMD's thread for movies with Bass. There is no "star" rating for this title and there are no timestamps or waterfalls showing the bass energy.
