I realize a lot has to do with room dynamics, just looking for general experience here.
Second, I like the idea of buying a system that's been designed to optimally work together. However, I also read a lot about the great capabilities of many other subwoofers. That would seem to be about the only place that I would think about substituting another brand in the system. Any experience with this? Using maybe a couple of Hsu's instead of the KW-120s? Or are the 120s simply that good that one wouldn't consider other approaches?
Thanks for your advice.
I heard this system at a local av store you won't be disappointed with sound as a whole or the subs.
