Nice to bump into you at CEDIA Peter. FWIW, tell Roger that for the crowd involved the LT-20 would be much more appropriate. These nuts will quickly find the limits of a single 10" 2 way...

That's likely related to the lower resolution and different type of measurement system used by the SMS-1. While moving couches in/out/around the room will affect the subwoofer response, 1-2 bodies...
