How do you find the 2-12" filling out the room?? boosting the bottom end?? sufficient?? did you consider ported? Rythmik suggested that 2-12" wouldn't do much for my room other than fill the nearfield area? - what have you found? I am using (should say will be using as I'm waiting for delivery) Studio 60 fronts, CC590, ADP 590 rears powered by an MRX710. Any other input appreciated.
I have no issues with my subs...now granted I'm not a huge
Basshead like some folks here. The kitchen is directly behind
My living room couches, but when seated my subs are only
About 7 feet away, don't know if that qualifies as nearfield?
When listening to a movie, at near reference levels the subs
Can rattle fixtures on the walls in the kitchen.
I played around with a Paradigm DSP3200 sub...I prefer sealed.
But, I've never heard a real high quality ported sub before.
I don't like the sized factor, too big.
If your room size is similar to mine I do suggest dual subs.
I know that the Rythmik ported 15" sub is an output monster
That is very highly regarded and reviewed.
