The chief advantages of multiple subs are qualitative as opposed to quantitative. By that I mean the system would sound better, not just louder. One sub can rarely achieve a neutral response in a...

The thing about bass under 20 hz is you need a lot of it for it to be perceived at all, because human hearing is not very sensitive to it. It mostly just shakes things in your room and generally...

You are right about the pricing for the Reaction speakers, somehow I messed up on that math. However I would gladly give up the surrounds for a multiple sub system. One sub is not going to cut it in...

Multiple subs are so advantageous that I would recommend you go with duals right off the bat. A single sub system won't necessarily sound bad, but it isn't likely to produce a flat frequency response...

That would have to be one hell of a discount, because three CX-10s and four CX-8s eats up his entire $5k budget with no room left for subs. I think you would agree he would want at least two high...

What I think would be even better and right on the nose for his budget: dual Reaction PS15x subs (http://reaction-audio.myshopify.com/collections/subwoofers/products/ps-15x-1000w-sealed-subwoofer)....

It isn't that the sub likes to be run hot, it is just that linear, clean bass will sound quieter than the kind of bass generated by the PW505. Lesser performing subs tend to generate a lot of...

+1 this, that would be best however that is $200 over his budget with shipping. From his list, if he can get a Submersive in good shape within his budget, that is how I would lean. If not, get the...

+1 this. Your subwoofer is shaking the air, and that vibrating air is shaking loose things. Less air vibration = less bass.

The CX-10 actually has two drivers. The tweeter is mounted behind the center of the woofer. This is what is known as a coaxial design, and it has some real benefits. Don't judge these speakers by the...

Looks nice. These are meant for near-field use, so you can't really fault them for not hitting extreme SPLs cleanly at 12'. For the price, terrific. I managed to snag my pair at a particularly good...

If you are thinking about stacking some variable tuning subs like the VTF15hs, I would encourage you to run them all in the same tuning mode. If the subs in that pic were running a mix of sealed and...

The Rythmik looks to have an advantage at 20 hz and below. I would say, if money is kind of tight, go for the VTF15h. If the extra few hundred don't matter that much, go with the Rythmik. On the...

GTO that sounds like something you could do, but you have to be aware that the mk2 would not have as much dynamic range as a VTF15h mk1 stack, so the mk1 stack would be a bit bottle-necked in...

The Balanced Force 212 is not a bad sub. Pricey, but should able to give you some good bass. What is a bit odd about it as opposed to other subs with multiple drivers in a single cabinet is that it...

The cabinet is mostly the same except the driver cutout is a bit larger on the mk2, and the mk 2 is 1" shorter in depth. A router should do the job in widening the driver cutout, however it may be...

I am guessing there won't be a 'kit' that can upgrade a VTF15h mk1 to an mk2. You need to replace both the driver and the amplifier, and the cut out for the driver isn't the same size, so you would...

From what is understood, the VTF15h mk2 should have similar levels of output as the FV15HPat 25 hz and above. So no, it will not take 2 to match the FV15HP in your space, one will do the trick unless...

+1, quoted for truth. Get some real speakers. Given your time spent with CWs, I think you might like some Klipsch speakers, I would be looking at their Reference series.

There is only so much air a medium xmax sealed 12" can move. You may not be used to the sound because so many other cheaper subs produce a ton of harmonic distortion which produces a lot more upper...
