Yep. I was the proud owner of an SVS-PC13Ultra. But I wanted another one to help fill in the nulls. After a bit of research I realized I could build TWO subs and buy an amp, for about what I could...

Those are the two subs that I'm running, in those exact enclosures, powered by an iNuke6k. You've seen my SPL graph. I don't think the f3 of 27Hz is anything to be concerned with, but maybe I'm...

I can't say that my twins were boomy or anything, but I just can't imagine them without some eq. It makes an enormous difference. What eq do you plan to use? Are you thinking of a miniDSP 2x4, or...

I think I described what is happening here earlier. Some claim that the auto target is somehow removing bass sub 20hz (with images as proof), and others are claiming (with...

Presumably, this is the "drop" that is being discussed. However, I think that if your natural frequency response at 15Hz (the green line) measured up near +5bdb, then this "drop" wouldn't be there...

The "this" I was referring to was people having issues with the 88a causing a loss of bass below 20hz. I'll have a look at your links. I'm not saying it doesn't happen, I'm just surprised that it...

Understood. I didn't see any smiley, and others have complained about the need to buy cables in the past. Hopefully those links help someone find cheap cables in the future. ;-)

Is this really a thing? I love looking at SPL graphs, and honestly can't say that I have noticed this on the posts in this thread. Here's mine again for reference:

Not me. I measure basically flat to 15hz, with significant output down to 10hz. (A small hump between 10 and 15, and then a pretty significant fall-off).

8 (4 in, 4 out) of those will cost you a whopping $30. Added to the $1000 price of the 88a, that doesn't seem like a real stretch does it?

Yes. If your AVR supports multiple subs, you can adjust the sub delays. If your AVR doesn't support multiple subs, something like a miniDSP 2x4 can be used.

So, am I stuck with trying to figure out a proper power-on order to solve this? Fun.
