You did do pretty good ... EXCEPT for your subwoofer choice. Spending 7 grand on a home theater system, while putting only $900 in subwoofers doesn’t make sense, unless it’s a small room (under...

My mistake. I thought the OP went with the R5Bi’s. Didn’t realize he opted for what you recommended (which I thought was a good recommendation, btw).

Thanks, ShadyJ! I've listened to this passage countless times, but never saw it :).

BTW, there is a second passage at around the 3:27 mark that’s even more intense.

Yes. There is a natural tympani drum with an underlying synthesizer. The subs that failed, played only the tympani and missed the synthesizer. It's a curiosity as to why. Since Mike Oldfield is...

I test all the subs I’m interested in with one piece of music. That is Mike Oldfield’s “Shabda” from his “Music of the Spheres” CD. Don’t know why this is such a demanding piece for subwoofers, but...
