I've not really stepped outside to check really. I live in a neighborhood also and I am very conscious of how loud and low I let me system go. Not so much as to really bother my neighbors but I...

If Audyssey is setting your sub to zero, chances are, you're getting cheated out of a little output from your sub and you really should turn up the gain on the sub itself. But it's really up to you...

Finally got off my lazy behind and found out what happened with my audio cable. Looks like the run was so long I had to actually use a connector to put two cables together. That had just come...

Best of luck, Kuro. I know that's a sinking feeling. I was like, man it's just a big black heavy box that just sits there. How can anything go wrong with it.

I own the Klipsch SW-450. I purchased it years ago and don't use it now but it's a very good starter sub for a small/medium room.


Agreed, it should still be better than most anything that comes...

Oddly enough, I ran into something very similar last night. I turned my system on as usual and since my 15H's are set to auto, they power up when they get a signal. Problem was that only one kicked...

Yeah, that was being discussed here a while ago. If you aren't careful, you could do some real damage with your sub(s). I just wished they would have saved some of that lfe for different points in...

Congrats on your new subbage!

I've not owned the MK2 nor the PB13U but what you've just described has been posted several times around these parts by current/former PB13 Ultra owners. The PB13U...

I've had a rather short subwoofer history...for better or worse.


1) Sony SAW-2500
2) Klipsch SW-450
3) Dual Bic America F12's
4) Dual Hsu 15H MK1's

I agree with what Luis said above. I don't think adding another MK1 or even an MK2 to that room if you so chose would be too much. Don't think of adding another sub as adding...more bass. You're...

Wow, one thing's apparent. You guys have spent/wasted way too much money on subs. It appears to be just for incremental upgrades..

See, you're trying to go from 15" to 18". That's how it should go. I went straight to 5.2 and from there jumped to 7.2 but I do think you'll notice quite a bit more immersion especially with movies...

Not that I was discussing replacing one or any of my subs, but No Thanks. My point was that my smallish theater room has more sub that it can handle. If I were looking to upgrade it would be to...

I agree with this totally. That's why I don't understand why people went bat crazy selling their 15H MK1's to get the MK2's. Not a big enough upgrade to worth the trouble. How many of them were...

I haven't seen your room but it seems that you're going completely overboard at this point to be honest. As the poster suggested, all you need is another 15H, not a single sub to replace what you...

I've never used xt32 but I don't believe you should be moving the gain on your sub after Audyssey has run. If the sub/subs are measured fine then adjustments should be made in your avr. Maybe I...

Agreed. I'm for anything greater than -12 because chances are, that's the lowest the receiver can measure.

My concern here is that when the sub is set to -12 is that it could be -12 but could be -15 or more because I believe -12 is the just the lowest Audyssey will measure the sub. If Audyssey set the...

My question about the Cap would be if it's sitting in a home theater producing that much power, would it not become very localized?


I had this problem when I had only one 15H.
