The first time I heard it I almost reached for the remote, the second time it hit, I grabbed the remote and turned down the sub volume quick. My LMS-5400s are in sealed 5 cu.ft. enclosures driven by 4,000w so I need to be a little careful with them. Needless to say, I'm going to reduce the LT a little.
I put a LT on Coach's 8xSI18s, a little more conservative than the first one I put on my subs. We watched one of our go to scenes, the start of Transformers 1 and we heard a signal (cleanly) that we hadn't heard before. We didn't hear anything out of place, actually I toned down the bass and cleaned it up some with my DSP work.
So I'd definitely recommend an LT if you have sealed subs...but be careful as you can definitely overdo it.
Ok, I will get my links out I stashed and read up again before I do it. Been itching to do some dsp tinkering. Can't go too long without it...
Of course having you around will be nice too
I am running dual Submersives. I have had so many calibrations I can't count. So much tinkering with low shelf filters and sub trims etc...When I first got real woofage I had the bass so high the classic big hitters like War of the Worlds or the Looper scene with the kid towards the end were just ridiculous at the MV movie levels. I would always have to turn it down lol. Since I have matured a bit in my process I brush up to the line of too much with those scenes but not too much. They are powerful and the final fight scene in the hulk is just ridiculous!!! But not overdone. Prob around 13-14db hot but I also don't go to reference either. Bass is almost reference levels though
