Agreed and congrats, awesome setup!

My basement theater is on a slab and, while the 2nd row platform will flex, is nothing like what happens in my IB backwave area with only 4x18" drivers running. Backwave is a storage area and my study, and formal dining room, is directly above it. When I stand in the study, or dining room, with a particularly good movie scene, like WOTW pod emergence etc, I can feel the floor literally dancing up and and down through the carpeting. Walls are mostly concrete, so I mostly just get seating, clothing and people that resonate. Next theater will be ON the IB and not next to it. smile.gif

The receiver has three sub outs. One is for transducer, the others are the left and right amp stacks. most pro amps have signal in and signal out so you can chain them.

Hey, Rob. It's probably too late but did you order this already?

If you have not then think about 2-4" panels of either rockwool or oc703 and suspend them at a 45* angle across the corners you intend to treat. MUCH more effective and possibly cheaper too.

It wasn't a heavy hitter :/

I still have to watch winter soldier, edge of tomorrow, and the new transformers. Those are supposed to be good.

Agreed! I felt the bass was not up to standard for such a flick. The bass was a little unclean in certain sequences. Enjoy!

The tsunami scene had a bit of rumble w/ my transducers, other than that, was surprised. That flick had a lot of potential for bass. Oh well.

Cheers.

It's loaded with clipping unfortunately.

Does rock the place but it could have been much better. Usually the case these days.
