i'm sure the def tech engineers had their reasoning
are you having trouble timbre matching ?
I would say so, upper range of bass guitars, upper end of bass drums, lower end of guitar's and male voices sound different between the front speakers, i.e. a deep male voice would sound deeper as it would panned from the left or right speaker to the middle. It's not a huge range, but it does make a difference. I thought I was told the crossover is at 80Hz, but it seems higher, else it's the enclosure, but I doubt it since it seems about as big as the CLR3000 mids enclosure.
I did notice that when I was playing the test tone, adjusting the subwoofer nob did make a difference in the volume of the tone from the subwoofer, but it seems like it needs to be around 12-oclock before it would get to a high enough level. I think a lot of rooms have issues with tones between 100-125Hz as far as nulls go, so maybe that's part of the issue.
Perhaps diffusers on the side walls would help, but I'm not sure what type I would need and if it would be too big or not.
What I don't really get is that when I demoed BP7002 before I decided to get the BP7000SC, they seemed to handle bass guitars better where as on the BP7000SC it gets lost a bit in the back ground. Anyone with a BP7002, I'm curious if you could check your mids and when they start to roll off. If they roll off the same, I'm curious when the subwoofer starts kicking in.
