After extended listening, my new Strauss speakers are really lacking in the bass region. I have tried moving them all around in the room and, while using low frequency test tones, have even tried locating them in areas of maximum bass reinforcement with minimal improvement. The deficient bass is common to both speakers and they are phased properly, with the side bass speakers firing “outward” as suggested in the manual for maximum bass.
I understand that placement of these speakers is very important, but the bass drivers should behave the same as any other cone woofers (unless the laws of physics have been somehow suspended in my listening room). The room is large and also houses my home theater system and has adequate absorption. The corner-mounted pair of Carver Signature subs used for the home theater pump out plenty of bass and the response seems reasonably uniform.
I have not checked my new McIntosh MC 275 power amp and C2200 control amp, other than verifying the settings are correct, trying multiple sources and operating within the MC275’s rating. The sound is really great above about 100 Hz. I am stumped! Any suggestions would be appreciated.
