It still comes down to basic principles for me. Playing good sound is easy at low levels, playing at reference is another ball game. There are many loud speakers, there are many great sounding...

All the data I have seen must have been streamed. Now of course I was seeing a pattern and not every movie out there. This must be why I don't like streams and any movie with good sound I buy on...

Not for ULF. The room adds so much gain down low and nearfield placement negates this. You will get more 20hz and above for sure. You can see this happen in spec lab or compression sweeps.

As the comparison between speakers I can only speculate based on owning all the parts but never the whole speaker. 4 Pi vs JBL 3677 I would think the 4 Pi. Why? Well IMHO the 2226 is better than...
