To a point, you are correct. But I’ve tested several $1,000 plus sealed subs in my home and at stores and even at an audio show. Depending upon the music, the differences can be dramatic. Room...

I decided to try out the S3000i to see how it compares to my XS30, and ordered it today. I’d like to thank many of the people here for their input on this particular sub. A special thank you to...

One of the nice surprises at this year’s audio show in SoCal was the ability of the 24-inch Mariana to reproduce music faithfully, even when it wasn’t setup for music. I took two pieces of music...

The O.P. has a 1496 cu. ft. room (the top end of a small room). He will get a lot of cabin gain, so a sealed design is a good way to go. I have the XS30 in a 3,400 cu. ft. room that’s rather open...

It depends upon the Hsu model. The PB-1000 is a great bang-for-the-buck sub and has true 20 Hz performance. Plus, you'll have 45 days to find out if you want to keep it. If not, ship it back on...

Don’t let any naysayer dissuade you. Pick the speakers you like the best. You only need to please yourself. If you like the XR100s, you can find a great subwoofer to integrate into your system for...

Two subs allow for smoother bass response over a larger area, such as your sectional. I doubt a single sub could cover that area effectively. However, like everything in this world, with every plus...

It’s impossible to say, but those with longevity have done something right. Klipsch, Wharfedale and others have been around forever. So has McIntosh (more known for electronics than speakers, but...

Front corner loading could work. It has the tendency to boost SPL because of boundary gain. It also could be the worst place to put it because of peaks (bloated or boomy sound). The surefire way...

The 20.7s are in the $14,000 range. They are simply an amazing speaker, but huge. Make sure you audition their 3.7s (they are almost as big). They cost only about $5,500 (a tremendous value) and I...

Yes, that's a much better BIC system (the H100 sub is a step up from the V1220). You should be happy. Again, make sure you can send them back if you're not happy.

As far as Def Tech subs are concerned, even $850 for the SC8000 is too much, imo. They are nice looking little subs, and probably might work well in a small room up to 1,500 cu. ft. (your room is...

No, they don’t “suck”, but they are a budget sub. As I stated, I own the V1220 and have it hooked up to a small speaker system in my computer room. Their frequency response won’t get too much under...

Well, at least they have the specs (with +/- 3 dB modifier) on the I-12e (not the I-12). As far as I’m concerned, those specs looks encouraging. I’m not sure why the S-12 (sealed design) is at the...
