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?

It is...I wonder if there is a change with the new sub.

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!
