It's not actually about blowing out your windows, it's about the right tool for the job. Using a small subwoofer in such a large space is like putting a 4 cylinder motor into a 1 ton pickup. While...

Until you said "synth stuff" I still felt the Dynamo 300 would be a good fit, but depending upon what you do with that it may no longer be the case.

Corner loading a subwoofer tends to give it...

I'd definitely skip the PSW111 - that one is not known for stellar sound quality.

What type of music are you mixing? The Dynamo should be solid down to about 30Hz with a near-field placement like...

That wouldn't really work I'm afraid.

For the sake of argument let's say the two subs had a gain structure such that 12:00 on the dial for the 15" had the same output level as the 12" set at 1:00...

That depends upon your definition of "considerable difference". They both have a single 10" driver in a very small cabinet, meaning physics will limit what either can do. The 700 has double the...

Since you want something with decent sound quality, inexpensive, small and don't require very deep bass take a look at the ML Dynamo 300 (https://www.martinlogan.com/dynamo/dynamo300.php). It...

Your HT room is less than 2200 ft^3 and you already have a pair of VTF-3 MK5's? Sell the rest on craigslist, you're done! All those other units would do is drag down the HSU's.

The subwoofer itself is essentially irrelevant to the solution, it's the results that matter most. In that regard an isolator is your best solution. You can pretty much guarantee the sub will no...

This isn't a good idea for several reasons.

Let's assume both subwoofers are wired in parallel and of commensurate quality, in other words you don't have a high-end 12" and a low-end 15". If that...

There is no set answer to this question; sometimes symmetrical placement will prove ideal, other times it won't. It's almost entirely room dependent, so what works for you (or someone else) may not...

Perhaps it's merely semantics, but just in case... you want to open the circuit, not close it. The former breaks the path while the latter completes it.

Based upon your description my guess is you're having a problem with the amplifier. The driver is a passenger (notice the car analogy? :p) because the amp controls most of what a subwoofer does. ...
