I got my first 18" sub in 2011 and by the end of 2011 I had another 18 inch sub. I got curious and sold both of them for dual opposed 15 inch subs (meaning 4 15" drivers) in 2012.

In 2013 I...

Doom/gothic.... sort of. Also reminds me of southern metal (not sure that's a thing but that's how I think of it) like they were influenced by COC or Down on some of the songs. Listening to the...

So Mark, I guess that means you won't be reviewing one of these anytime soon? :D

Thanks Grant! I'll watch them with the girls! :) They saw the first one a couple years ago and my youngest drew this the next day so I assume she liked it. They haven't seen the 2nd movie yet. ...

I did not have zero noise with the 215's using the inuke. I had some hiss, but I could barely hear if from the seats. Using the 88A I had quite a bit more hiss and could easily hear it from the...

If I were on a suspended floor I wouldn't need a sub. I've heard these same 210's at a friends and no sub is needed for sure for listening to music. I'm on concrete so I like the extra feel from...

It is much more the latter, I like 2 channel music more with speakers out in the room. It makes gives the soundstage more depth and that 3D feel. The 210's would work a lot better for music...

I assume the 2400's are similar to the old passive Caps I used to have back in 2011. We did some comparing with a Cap to some Ultra's back then and subjectively it felt/sounded like 1 Cap = 3...

Haha, well there you have it. Not only that but I run the nearfield sub quite a bit hotter for JW than anything else - but it doesn't change the response much if at all when running measurements. ...

Hey Ray, from my experience the difference is from the mbm's higher position. ^
