In my system a simple exchange of RCA to balanced lines to my subs made the difference. Glad yours worked out well.

I've got dual PB13s and they are quite large - very deep (long) boxes to be honest. I have mine longitudinally along the side walls, outside my main speakers. I'd much prefer the compact SB13, but...

If you're using the LFE output on the Yamaha receiver and YPAO EQ, there's no real need to use any of the sub's crossover or EQ settings. The receiver should have internal adjustment of what sub...

Two is better than one, if you take the time to set it up. Almost always, it'll provide better even bass around the room versus a single box. I love B&W (I have B&W all around my room, except for...

You can do the "subwoofer crawl" to get a feel for what different locations do to the type of impact you'll get from your sub. But that's only a starting point. The song you play won't give a full...

I'm keeping my eye out for a Seaton F2 in rosenut color to match my B&W's. But now this F18 has my interest too. I just like the shallower depth of the F2 a bit more. That shallower depth will help...

Port helps the sub's output near that port's tuning point. Doesn't contribute to localization, or anything. It will also make a sub's box bigger when ported. Sealed comes in smaller. A single sealed...

Ok, can't leave this one alone... Looks like you already have two big "woofers" up front. :D


For the stairwell, could you hang a thick quilt or similar to cut down on mid/treble echo?

I'm running dual PB13 in 16Hz tune. Originally I had the 800w(?) BASH amp in one, but now have the 1000w Sledge amps in both. That made a bit of a difference in shear output and (IMO) better control...

That'd be a good option... I'm hoping to find a pair of F2 in Rosenut personally. Or perhaps consider the new F18 by Seaton.

The SB13 would be great nearfield and/or in a smaller setting. For a large volume, as others have mentioned, you'll need more air movement. Even if you don't listen at reference levels (I rarely do),...

I've always eyed the SubM HP+ in master/slave combo, but now the F18 master/slave/slave/slave setup has me reevaluating my approach. How does a HP+ with slave compare to a single F18 and slave in...

My PBs are sledge. I forgot about trying the PB in sealed mode to simulate the SB output. Will give that a try for a while to get a feeling of what I'd be moving down to on output down low. Thanks...
