FWIW, I think it can be a little difficult to make those direct comparisons. First, Adam is sitting very close to those big boys. Closer than would usually be the case, and perhaps closer than your...

Thank you very much, David! That was a very nice compliment, and I appreciate it. FWIW, though, I think that we all contribute to the collective body of knowledge. I am just continuing...

I was also struggling a little without budget or listening volume information. But, based on the information he did provide, I reasoned that he is probably not listening at very high volumes, if he...

Hi Chucky,

I admire your industry in experimenting with different sub locations, and in documenting the measured results. (Marc has created a monster. :rolleyes:) Looking at the graphs, and...

I agree with the other posters who have advised you to save money on electronics and spend it on speakers, instead. I would buy a good AVR, and if I found that I needed to augment the power for the...

Hi,

Given what you are saying about listening in two different positions, I especially think you should be looking at dual subs. I would be less concerned with overall output, at this point, than...

David,

As I understand it, Lyngdorf's Room Perfect system is based on an entirely different type of algorithm than is Audyssey's, and consequently, there would be no reason to expect them to use a...

+1 to Feri's comments. I assume that this is just your front speakers and your sub. Is your crossover at 80Hz, where that dip is, and if so have you tried other crossovers? Can you hear anything that...

Hi,

First, do you have two sub outs on the back of your AVR, or do you have the two subs Y-connected into one sub out? If you do have two sub outs, you may need to go into your configuration menu...

No, I'm not thinking of potential cancellation due to having the subs pointed at each other. I'm just thinking that having the sub point right at the MLP will increase the direct pressure wave. You...

That looks like a good spot, and running the sub along the wall behind the sofa, instead of perpendicular to it, might work very well. You are never quite sure what spots will work best for subs...

You are very welcome! A picture of that corner would really help, but you might also consider orienting the sub in a different direction, or even moving the end table forward a little. I started with...

Thoughts, definitely! Wisdom? I'm not as sure. :rolleyes:

I'm not certain, from looking at your photos, which corner you are planning to use for the second sub. Would you please guesstimate...

Thank you for the compliment, but I understood what you were saying perfectly. You express yourself very clearly, in my opinion. I was going to leave the DEQ issue alone, but since Marc...

You are very welcome! One of the nice things about going with SVS subs is that you can try the subs risk-free. My advice with subs is usually to go as big as you can afford, to avoid future...

I don't think that you can say it any better than Ed already did. But, if you want to see the difference graphically, just compare the max response of the SB12-NSD, to a single PB12-NSD, on the...

I think that some of the Quad recordings were pretty good. It seems to me that the ones that were made by "Command" (?), which I believe was a British record company, were good quality recordings. I...

You are probably right about me forgetting a lot about subs, but probably wrong about me knowing anything. :p

Hi Adam,

I believe that peoples' overall listening levels, and desire for low bass, can vary pretty widely. I haven't taken anything you have said as an implied criticism of the Cap 2400's. One of...
