The F113 will dig deeper, no doubt, at the expense of some utility in the mid-bass (likely only a concern if you cross over above 100Hz). If it were me, I'd save up for a second F112 if you have the...

It really depends on what your room requires in terms of correction; that said, most untreated rooms will need more. I found it did help eliminate a lot of bloat in the sound by going after the...

Yep, works just fine, that's currently what I do since my Antimode EQ only has unbalanced outs.

Ok, but that's for you - you have a dedicated home theater (and an obvious need for serious bass :D), so auditioning subwoofers becomes a major undertaking. You offer good advice for people in...

I do agree, there's no substitute for a proper audition in your room. From what I've gathered over the years, the Submersive (not sure how many versions there have been) is certainly capable of more...

I've always considered the term "speed" to be a figure of speech describing how the subs are blending with the mains. Maybe, instead of playing Mr. Grumpy Big Sub, you could try to bring the thread...

+1, nice to hear you've done your homework, Pete. I've always found something special about the sound of the Fathoms to my ear. Nothing quantifiable, of course, but that's not important to me. What...

I always get a good laugh when people just can't resist pulling up a box to preach in this thread - and totally unprovoked! Show me where anyone has claimed the Fathom to be something it isn't.
