Looking at that graph and strictly for music, I think I would opt for the PB. Music doesn't stop at 60hz, think about the lower register of a piano, all the way down to 27.5hz. At that point the...

My room is about 4000cu ft and open to other areas. With the roll off of the 16hz tune in this size room, there's nothing to be gained. I get less impact in movies and little to no difference in...
