I'm still taking it easy on the subs as I believe in breaking in the suspension. So far, I enjoy them over the Klipsch. The biggest noticeable difference is the lack of plastic creaking and port noise (although I haven't really gotten any air moving through them). They do sound pretty clean and go pretty low.
I have played with placement behind the false wall without any other speakers up there; just running the rears as mains. With placement anywhere behind the false wall, I still fight the dead spots in about all the same spots. One thing I haven't tried is to elevate the subs a bit.
This is where I'm hoping the 3rd sub will help in the rear. I suppose I could play with some base trapping, I just don't have a ton of space to work with and don't want to out of place. I'll keep breaking these suckers in and see what they sound like, but I REALLY need to address the dead spots in my room. The bass sucks at my seating position compared to the back of the room and about 3 feet in front of the seating.
Geeze, you seem to have everything. I'm feeling bad for always using your tools and such. I do enjoy coming out there though
Laurie started staining the equipment rack, so it's finally getting done.
EDIT: Got a few better pics of the subs. They hide away quite nicely in the blackness
. These pics are with the flash on.
Now that I've had them running all day, without cranking them up, I am really liking them. Even when I thought I was pushing them based on the sound I was getting, the cones were BARELY moving. To top it off, it sounds CLEAN compared to the port chuffing, plastic creaking Klipsch subs. I love my Klipsch speakers, but I'm glad I talked myself into spending extra money to replace the subs.
