You should have saved up for the c351 or at least the c251. Room equalization will not change the character of the speaker. If you have a way to accommodate a bookshelf speaker for the center, the...

First of all, with a smaller cabinet and ports, the new Outlaw isn't likely to beat the EX by 2 dB at 20 Hz. Maybe at 40 Hz, but I doubt at 20 with the changes that have been made. Also, I think it...

None of those have been tested. I really don't think they would behave like you are predicting. I would go for the dual Outlaws in any case.

If you can DIY then you should. Commercial subwoofers can not compete in performance to the kin of stuff you can put together yourself. $1k will go a long way for a DIY sub, that would get you a very...

It's not the sub, its Audyssey. Audyssey usually sets the LFE lower than what what many people like, and the only way to verify that it's an accurate setting is to measure it with an SPL meter or...

The SVS speakers are not meant for in-walls. They are counting on empty space around them for the best sound dispersion, and furthermore, by placing them in alcoves, you block the ports. The Polk...

I would go for the Hsu system by virtue of the subwoofer alone. The klipsch subs in these packages are usually very bad. The Hsu sub will be many times better. The speakers are a bit different. The...

I would go for dual SVS SB13s in that choice. However, in that budget I think you can do better that a couple SB13s or a Submersive. I would look to see what Rythmik, Hsu , or Reaction Audio would...

The VTF15h subs will have a LOT more output, and they will dig deeper too. I would go for the VTF15h or the VTF3 mk5. Also, I think 350 is a bit high for an older sub like that. It doesn't strike me...

A problem with more voice coil is more inductance, so with more power handling can also follow worse response shape. There are some things that can be done to mitigate this though, but ideally you do...

What would be neat to see is the newer cabinet, driver, and amp but simply switching the driver to side firing instead of front firing. The older cabinet looked a tad under-ported, I would rather...

Yes, if for no other reason than you are that much closer to the woofer and will get punched that much harder. Incidentally I have tried both types of subs for an endtable, the Hsu VTF3 mk3 and...

You have to keep in mind that extension is given up for the improvement at 20 Hz, but overall, if that design change works out like I think it will, it will make for an overall better performing sub....

This is exactly what I have been saying for years but have received tons of flack for! CEA-2010 data sets should not be mixed, because CEA-2010 is just not precise enough for that. I believe that Hsu...

Just one small correction: the Hsu speakers sensitivity is 92 dB in half space, which mean 89 dB in full space. At least Hsu denotes the context of the measurements of their speakers, which many...

There are no independent test measurements for any of those subs. I really like the Hsu subs but the new Reaction sub looks very good as well. I'm sure it won't surprise anyone, but I would cross the...

You can just use an SPL meter for REW, a good mic is nice but not necessary. Like Red said, the Audyssey mic won't work with REW I believe. I would retake those measurements using a good mic and...

No way is the XXX four times as good as the Umax 18, not a chance. The XXX has a tremendous xmax, but that wouldn't compete with the cumulative xmax you get from four Umax 18s. Look at it this way,...

While a Submersive would have the most output, I think two JL Audio E112 subs would do very well output wise and also potentially have the ability to smooth out room modes, which a single sub can not...

Your sub is fine. In the 1 EQ setting, the sub assumes a port is closed which would cause more internal air pressure against the driver, and make it less likely to bottom out. So in 1 EQ, it relaxes...

Yes, when we talk about power in decibels, we have to specify what we mean. Most of the time around here it means amplitude, so 6 dB gain is considered a doubling. As for perceived loudness, that is...
