I'll try playing with phase, but that dip has always been there, whether it's been one sub or two up front, ported or sealed.


The only time the dip hasn't been there was when I forced a "flat to...

1. Toss the "crappy little subwoofer" and get a Dayton SUB-1000 (http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-sub-1000-10-100-watt-powered-subwoofer--300-628) ($109, shipped) or SUB-1200...

No, that's room positioning. Here's a graph of the UXLs in those spots vs. the SS-18s in the same spots a few months ago:

- red = SS-18s (w/ 200Hz...

- black = all subs (Aud on)

Not sure about reference at 12.5Hz. The back-right corner seems to have little to no gain, so the FR curve for the SS-18s alone drops fast below ~40Hz or so....

I think you could just re-use the existing plate and binding posts - just route the wiring from the driver directly to the posts (by-passing all the other electronics).

I'd try selling it as a passive sub at a discounted price. Potential buyers can then choose to either:
- get a replacement amp from SVS; or
- use a different amp altogether (e.g., an iNuke).

According to the owner's manual, the NS-C310's FR is 90Hz-45KHz @ -10dB. I wouldn't set the center-channel crossover on the AVR any lower than 120Hz.

And I'd set the crossover for the front L&R...

Right - it makes no sense to claim 7.5Hz extension if , realistically, the level of output is unusably low below, say, 15-20Hz.
