I'm selling my DALI Epicon Vokal--PM for details. (I went back to stereo, so I have no need for the center speaker.)
How do you incorporate your sub? Does the Pass Labs integrated have a crossover?

No. I run the PL's preamp out to the SVS, which has built-in crossovers and filters. SVS' website has a program that has suggested settings based on the main speakers and sub one owns.

Dali Mentor And Rubicon

Some years ago I listened to Dali speakers at a dealer and left with what could afford at the time...one Dali Mentor LCR. Well kids and priorities and years later here I am with one lonely Mentor LCR. With the mentor line discontinued, and a serious lack of dealers I am stuck with not really knowing what to do. I do have some budgetary constraints and my room is about 12x15...so not very big. I'd like to hear peoples thoughts on how to proceed..be on the lookout for the mentor series or move towards the Rubicon line.

How Do the mentor 2s and 5 compare and how well do they match up to the Mentor LCR?

How do the Rubicons compare to the Mentor Series? I am really curious how the Mentor 2 compares to the Rubicon 2.

Would the Rubicon LCR match well with the Mentor LCR I am currently using as center.

I have a pair of Rubicon 2's on hand at the moment.

What I've noticed thus far (not fully broken in just yet) is they image insanely well.

They have decent bass weight, though not earth shattering, but that is pretty standard for stand mount speaker.

The finish is excellent too, one of the better finishes I've seen at this price point.

Epicon 6 bass

I can't respond to PMs yet, as I need a few more posts....

Someone asked me in PM that they would like a bit more bass with their Epicon 6, as I would before I added a sub recently, and what my experiences were.
Thought it was a good idea to share it here also.

The difference a sub added to my system was excellent and really worth it.
Perhaps my room is just killing the bass.
Speakers placement is important of course, but I changed it as much as I could.

I got a good deal on a used Paradigm sub 1 I couldn't refuse, and its giving me most I was missing (huge positive difference)
Superb for movies also of course.

I made a longer post in the speaker forum and got loads of good advice, I'm also messing with a Dirac EQ box I got.
It seems to remove some midbass, which I think is the boomy part.
I am going to mess more with that, it seems like a change that I miss when I turn it off more than a instant upgrade.
The next goal for me is trying to beef up the midrange (drums etc) and add acoustic treatments.

Also thinking about going for Epicon 8's....if anyone heard both the Epicon 6 and 8 and could chime in on differences I would be happy.
The general info I have found seem to suggest its "more of everything".
...I am greedy
