I had a message yesterday I must have forgot to post. I was going to suggest maybe two 2400's instead of the S2's. I've heard dual Captivators with the following pairs: 118's, 1400's, 2400's, S2's, 4000's, and Orbit Shifter LFU's. I've heard dual S2's the most at The Savoy
. I'll be there again Saturday for movie night. For a room that size, they are incredible. I tend to like more headroom above 30 Hz than below, which the S2's have.
In a room with his width, the subs with narrower width and depth work better because you have room to slide the subs between the L/R and C for the best suppression of room modes. He isn't using an AT screen so can't have something big sticking out in the room and the S2 or the 2400 can lay on their side. However, the S2 is the only one of those that can be placed so all frequencies coming from it are at the 1/4 points in the room. The 2400 works if vertical, but not if sideways.

It is mostly a space and placement issue. The 4000ULF is awesome! I had the one from the KC GTG in my room for a little while. Was going to have some guys over to listen to it. However, someone in Omaha wanted to buy it and I delivered it to him the next day. I spent a couple hours the night before just listening to music with it. It sounds really, really good.
