Isolators will definitely help quiet down things vibrating in your room, so if that's your concern then a Auralex SubDude might indeed be the way to go. My only beef with their products is they...

To be honest I think the wattage of a subwoofers amp is a spec given more significance than it really should have, so be careful of using that as a yardstick. There are so many other aspects that...

I haven't had the opportunity to hear an Omni 12 -- the only Energy subwoofer I've ever heard was the S10.3 -- so I can't directly comment on it from experience. Judging by what I know of the LV12R...

I don't recall reading anything about H-100II's having a high failure rate, so it may not be a big concern. I'm not sure of the unit volume BIC is selling but I imagine it's not a large number -...

Good catch Joe, I never even noticed that! Class H are hybrids, like BASH and ICEpower amps. Rythmik's 600 watt amps are Class H. Considering the PDSB15A sells for the low $200's that is pretty...

You're point is actually quite relevent, because it's 100% true. You can not fix a problem you don't know exists. Dual subs may indeed be the answer for some, but if you can't see why they might be...

'at least' being the key words there. Those speakers have a 2.5" 'woofer', which I suspect can only get to 150Hz on a good day. My guess is the voices are going to sound awfully chesty with that...
