The amount of power needed for higher bass above 150hz is very minimal compared to the amount needed for the low stuff, so I really don't think it taxes the drivers a ton to play up to 350hz. I...

Looks like a very cool device, and should be fun getting it all setup and you will for sure be getting a lot more bass than you are now.

However... my opinion stands that it won't be enough for...

How much Dirac will help your sound depends on your room. I have a very good and smooth response from 100 hz and down from my main 215's ran large with no subs. However, from 100 to 300 hz there is...

Does anyone know how 6-7K compares to the Epson 3500? I currently have the 3500 and love it for the brightness but obviously the black levels aren't like the 5030. If the new Epson combines the...

I replied in your thread, my main point is that what you are running now is exactly like having 3 212's with 3 Cap 1400 subs and running the Cap 1400's level matched to the 212's. No bueno!!!! ...

Agreed.. however I think people are under the impression that the 215's can't handle the bass as well as a sub, but they can.

A submersive has the same drivers (basically) and 2000 watts power...

A 215 is equivalent to having a 212 with a Cap 1400 to go with it. So, you have the output capabilities of 3 Cap 1400's in your room. Sounds like you would be good to go...

So Grant, are your side surrounds now in front of the front row? You say you like that better? Any pictures of the new setup?

I'd like to make it over when you guys get a consensus on the day.
