yep, TML and TMR.


I like DSU for both music and movies, I've been using it nearly all the time. I just haven't really experienced that the heights do that much outside of the true Dolby Atmos...

Huge compromise is a strong takeaway. ;). I'd say minor or moderate compromise, but yes, assuming you are optomizing for three primary positions then I suggest 1 or 3 for nearfield, not 2 based on...

Might this be one of those things where the expected science doesn't necessarily map out exactly? In my previous room my subs were within 14' of each other, and I never saw more than a 3-4dB...

Two cap 1400's will best two Rhythmic FV15HPs

But it wouldn't necessarily be worth a trade to go from two Rythmiks to one cap depending on circumstances.

Figure with two Rythmiks non co-located...

Yeah,

I didn't hear the clipping in the John Wick gun blasts at your place, and frankly I think that's the most impressive bass I've ever heard.

I can hear clipping, if it's not limited, in...

Has this had any additional testing that anyone has run across? I read the initial results of the test with Speakerpower's owner weren't terribly exciting. Behringer blamed it on a firmware bug as I...

Yes, the Behringer has less power than is rated for, less than the IPR too (I wasn't saying the iNuke was better). I think it can push both channels from what I've read at four ohm without issue to...

Luke Kamp has an ipr 7500 with dsp.

I have an iNuke dsp 6000 and a cv-5000.

I suspect we could organize a test on someone's subs.

Notnyts data would be ideal though.

The ipr 7500 isn't...

It's well beyond crazy in here.

Mfusick, I'm intersted in seeing the results of your G2G where the JBL LSR305 or your $100 DIY speaker beats the JTR 228HT. But I don't think you can be the one...

Michael,

You need more many more g2g experiences, and less JBL whitepapers...

That is my subjective opinion.

You didn't summarize on my g2g conclusions correctly. It's a lot to read, though worthy of taking a look. Again these are the better blind ones, not all of them. I'd like to know what was...
