Hey guys. Quick question. How much power does the LFM1 EX consume if I leave it on all the time? If everything else is off but I keep that on.

Thanks

Cool, thank you. Is it weird that it is the same amount regardless of mode?

Also, is that number on the high side?

To make it sounding as good as possible, I'm going to be experimenting with several different locations around the room and several different subwoofer settings over the next couple days. Does anybody have any recommendations for improving the sound of these down firing subs in a room with ceramic tile flooring? I've heard of people putting some cloth or raising it higher. Has anybody with ceramic tile and an Outlaw sub tried anything like that?

Also, when I try the sub out in some of the locations around the room, I figured I'll need an extra few feet of power cord so it can reach my surge protector. Would it be OK to get a longer power cord for this sub? The provided power cord is 6 feet and 18 guage. I was thinking about getting a 10 foot 14 guage cord, but I read somewhere that it's not recommended to have power cables longer then 6 feet for safety reasons. Here's the link to the power cord:

I have both my Outlaw subs on Auralex Gramma pads. They are sound isolation risers, or at least they "claim" to be. I thought it made a small difference in sound but others with more technical experience have told me that was nothing but a placebo effect when I have brought it up in the past. Regardless, they are only $40-50 a piece and one that I own, I bought with my Outlaw from someone on this forum. Some people here have also made their own, but I would just as quickly spend the money on a Gramma than try to do it myself. Carpentry isn't really a strong suit of mine. Even if the sound quality did not increase, I still like that they are a little further off the floor.

Hahahaha! Yes, I used to be that guy and when I turned up the volume I got all nostalgic . Very happy with the sub, only disappointment is how often I have to turn it down due to the baby sleeping!

When you are married and especially when you have small children, one of the great joys of life is when you get to be in your house by yourself and can turn up the stereo/HT system to whatever volume you (or the neighbors) can handle! I have a designated theatr room, but the whole house rockes when a good movie is in!

Speaking of which, I watch Guardian of the Galaxy last night. Good movie and very good soundtrack (and Superhero space movies aren't really my deal...). The movie doesn't hit real low, but has a lot of dynamic content and cool content that tests the accuracy of your sub! I ran some scene back and forth with my EMPtek10i10i (a very accurate sub, but limtied in tis output and deep low end) and the outlaw LFM-1 plus and both hits the scenes with excellence! As I said, the Outlaw with get lower and has more output AND has the degree of accuracy in the mid bass that I have come to expect after listen to my EMP, so I am please with it so far!

Yes solo watching can be nice to really get to crank it. I watched DOFP while my son was taking his nap and my dad mentioned when I came out of the basement that I was shaking the upstairs.

Thanks a lot. No it was a finished space when we moved in. All we had to do was paint (my wife and daughter did most of that as I just can't stand painting), and move the stuff in. I kind of wish that we had ran stuff through the walls and stuff but just didn't want to really cut into the walls since it was all already done.
