If you place both subwoofers in the back of the room then they're quite a distance from the speakers, so getting the delay set up correctly could be tricky. If they will be 2.5 meters from the MLP...

To be honest, there are advantages and disadvantages to doing that. Advantage would be getting more output directly to the MLP, and possibly being able to use the 12" and 15" together (assuming the...

If you opt for an AT (acoustically transparent) screen then you could technically hide anything behind it, so in that respect your current Verus speakers would/could work just fine. Which leads...

Remove the 'best buy' part and I would tend to agree with you. However, Tannoy has shot themselves in the foot with regards to US sales. If you have no easy/discernible way to buy their products...

The room in question is over 2300 ft^3, so right off the bat most subs with a 12" driver are going to be working pretty hard. Factor in the "opens up into a similar sized area" and 15" subs become...

3dB is not as small a difference as you might think. That amount of variation between two different subs will be audible for most people, so while the number might seem small the difference really...

Every room is different so there's no way to accurately predict the best placement I'm afraid. Using a measuring system, like Omnimic or REW, is the first choice to determine what works best in your...

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.

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...

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.

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...
