Warm doesn't necessarily accentuate vocals. But you are right in that it indicates some emphasis on the lower end of the frequency response. Here is a sound glossary that might help with many terms:...

With your budget, allocating a few hundred more for the X3300W with MultEQ XT32 and Sub EQ HT is not a bad idea, IMO. It provides better overall room EQ for the speakers and sub than MultEQ XT in the...

All good points :)

But I think we can use anechoic CEA-2010 measurements to make some smart, educated guesses when pressurization is not possible about which subs are likely not to support the...

I personally would hold out longer for a little better quality surrounds given the quality of your other speakers.

Well, don't guess. I just showed you numbers that show that's not true. Dual SB-2000 are not going to come close to reference levels in the under 30hz range and arguably would likely have trouble in...

Depending on the placement, perhaps you are getting some room gain on the low end. The specs from the manufacturer could be anechoic.

On 2nd thought, I'd like to see you mount the extra pair of RC-50s as heights, then use something else for surrounds :D

Nice! I have RC-50s and RC-LCR in my front sound stage. :)

What are you using for subs?



I'd go for the RC-10. If they won't cost a fortune. Aren't they hard to find now?

Yes! Another extreme room person (see my previous post). :) I think a lot of people don't have audio setups in such large spaces and so greatly underestimate what it takes.
