That's actually what I do when my 93.21's are hooked up. I've done that with other speakers as well, and it seems to work fine.

A subwoofer will 'see' all the contiguous space, not just what has been designated as the viewing area, so you have to consider that when determing what products will work. Be that as it may... your...

Thank you for the links. Unfortunately the intent of this thread is for subwoofers used in HT and 2 channel audio, so I haven't included any pro gear.

That was with a subwoofer utilizing a different amp than the ones Reaction uses, so you shouldn't have an issue with auto-on if you decide to go with the plate amp.

It sounds like you're heading in the right direction, and for $800 or so you can get subwoofers that will be closer to what your room requires. However, those are also beyond the scope of this...

Due to the way a subwoofer works it will consider the listening area to be the entire volume of space, and in this case that's a whopping 6000 ft^3. I'm afraid there's no $500 subwoofer made that...

A good sub will come across differently depending upon the soundtrack, encoding and source material, so don't expect everything to be the same. And in the case of Tron that's one very thick and...

Yup, I noted that as well. However, Reaction isn't using the same amp as the one in the SUB-1200. He's using the SP Series, and generally their only fault is a tendency to hum.
