I trusted you guys and you were right.
I tried to not let myself think about the fact that I was spending that much money on speakers I had never heard before!! It was so nice to have a friend and avs member over today to check them out just to verify that it really is as big of an upgrade for 2 channel music as I think it is and I'm not crazy.
Yes I have tried the subs and speakers together. For music I don't know if I'll ever use the subs unless I'm going absolutely crazy for a demo.
The black line in all of the graphs is the 215's full range no subs.
The first one is an 80hz crossover on the 215's ran as small. I did have to tweak the distance settings on the 215's to get a good response:
215's small crossover at 50hz:
215's Large + Subs. For this I don't have to tweak the distance settings of the 215's at all... which is nice.... *bill murray voice*
Ick... terrible low end on the sealed subs. My avr drops like a rock as I get close to 10hz so someday that will get addressed. That is with the L/T on on the minidsp.
I'll probably use the subs for movies because... well... because they are there...
No, seriously I'll need to use them because I'll have have a 50hz or 80hz crossover on the 215's for now. The reason is I need a HPF on the 215's and if I use the inuke HPF it completely messes up the frequency response - much like Jonathan's ported caps when I tried to use a HPF on them when I was trying to integrate them with the sealed SI's. The caps also blended great until I used a HPF.
Here is what I mean. This was the BEST
I could do with tweaking distance settings with the HPF ON:
