well, I gave in to the urge to grab one of the subs before the price bump.
Ordered an A5-350. Now the bigger question -- where to put the darn thing!
I have an SVS 16-46PC+ in my main HT, which is about 4500 ft^3. It can certainly hit pretty darn well for LFE w/ my corner placement and given the layout of the room, though I was planning on getting a 2nd sometime in the next yr.
I was planning on doing some Xmas shopping for myself to get subs for my secondary HT (which is about 2100 ft^3) and my 'home office' (which is about 1300 ft^3). Now using the term 'home office' is probably a bit generous -- it's really more of a gaming room, and has much better components and speakers than my secondary HT.
I've been planning on getting 1 Hsu (either a 3.3 or a 2.3 depending on which room I choose) and 1 eD to go w/ my 1 SVS, just to get some variety in my systems (as I've done w/ my amps and spkrs, just for a change of pace and a wide range of experiences
So my question to you guys would be, should I:
1) Move the SVS to my home office and put the A5-350 in the main HT? Upside is probably more oomph for my largest, main room. Main downside is that my wife REALLY likes the both the small footprint of the SVS and the fact that it doesn't LOOK like a subwoofer to the uninitiated. Also, to be frank, she won't like the finish of the eD AT ALL.
2) Put the eD in my home office? Upside is that I could be in absolute bliss w/ an A5-350 in a 1300 ft^3 room and my wife does not bother me about ANYTHING in what she considers my space. Downside is that it may not be using the A5-350 to its full capabilities.
3) put the eD in my secondary HT, a room in which my wife cares less about aesthetics than the main HT, and a room that's larger than my home office. To be frank, the biggest downside is that, of the 3, it's probably the room I use the least, and most of the stuff I have in there (Wii, an old series 2 Tivo, some Polk spkrs, no ps3 as opposed to my other 2 rooms) isn't quite as bass-oriented, and I won't be getting full use of the sub.
What would you do?
Oh, and I can't wait to see what this sucker can do!!
Edited to add: of course, if Craig's testing on the MFW-15 yields good results, all these plans will be out the window, and I may have to re-think things!
