More like buying a cheap 360W 12V power supply from ebay or amazon. They're like $25.

Mathematically that doesn't make much sense. A UHD panel has 9 pixels (3x3) to use to display a single pixel from a 720p feed. A FHD panel has 2.25 (1.5x1.5). The latter should be more prone to...

What makes you think it would need to decode it in software? Presumably the new version PS4 will have the necessary hardware to decode HEVC.

It doesn't work that way. The horn has to be designed around the parameters of the driver.

This comes up in every thread where the XLS is mentioned. They're fine for sub use. They don't like really low impedance loads below 20Hz (like below their rated 2ohm stereo or 4 ohm bridged...

A 24" cylinder compared to a 24" x 24" x X" box, the box ends up a lot shorter for the same volume. Plus in a dual opposed config you have to lift the enclosure to give the bottom driver clearance...

The general depression between 80 and 500Hz could explain why you don't think there's enough slam. Your subs appear to be about 5dB too loud.

1) Why do you need a BASSIS if you're using the miniDSP?
2) Why two miniDSPs? A single unit has 4 outputs.
3) Make sure you get a balanced model (ie: do not buy the unbalanced / RCA 2x4)

I'd...

When using high efficiency mains your ears will probably give out before the amp does, especially if you're using a subwoofer with them.
