What do you guys think about the suitability of the P18 sub is for this room? I am thinking about one or two of them (if two is needed?) behind the AT screen. How would this sub compare to using the HSU VTF-15H (multiples) which are rated down to 16 dB? What other high power subs should I consider?
Also how does the Procella LCRs sound/compare to the Triad Gold Monitors or LCRs?
Hi, for your room size, the P18 would only be required if you wish to reach the very lowest of bass frequencies (-3dB @ 18Hz from 133dB@50Hz, so 130dB@18Hz!!), all the way down to below 10Hz! The P18 can play these low frequencies at SPL as required for much larger rooms than yours, so you will be over-specced from an SPL point of view. Based only on your room size, I would begin with 1 x P18-FP placed below or behind the screen, powered using our new rack-mount amp, the DA-06 (2 x 1200W) and plan to add a few P10-FP as balancing subs, distributed throughout the room, if required. But before we continue, we need to know what materials your room is made of: timber bats/sheet?, brick?, concrete?
We don't comment on other products. The Procella loudspeakers all use studio-quality, Italian-made compression drivers (HF), mounted on our proprietary wave guides. This gives them much greater SPL than dome-tweetered loudspeakers, with much lower distortion, greater clarity and much better dispersion characteristics. All our loudspeakers are designed to be timbre matched, allowing you to use P28(P860), P8(15), P6(10) and P5 in any combination (LCR, surrounds) as required for your room, whilst maintaining our Identical Voices(TM) principle throughout.
Hope this helps!
