Jon, I will try out my auro disc in DSU. I have an extra I can send it. It's pretty cool as it cuts the height layers on and off while you demo the same ambient sounds. Gives a great idea of what the...

So your curve has somewhat of the same slope mine does or more severe? How are you going about doing this?

Good to know, as my intial assumptions would be the exact reason I would want the 2 channel myself, for basically the same reason you are needing it, two systems, two system Q's, two different f3...

I can't disagree with any of that really. I definitely agree with you that you couldn't port the sh50 in its current state to get more out of it, or wouldn't want to.

Fair enough for sure. I was simply pointing out my preference. The full range capability is definitely also an advantage, for some people and some rooms. My room is included in that statement.

The 7702 is fantastic. I am basically a tried and true D&M guy though. Onkyos tend to have more HDMI boards frying, and get hot enough to cook an egg on top, the yamaha offerings just tend to miss...

I have heard both, but not in the same room, or at the same time so it's a little tough to really make comments on that. With that said, a full range danley that could dig as low as the 215 is my...

At 4 ohm stereo the 7500 performs exactly as anticipated, a little over 2000wpc. Never had ANY issues at 4 ohm on the 7500 or the crest 7.5 (for a short period). It is when you get to 2 ohm stereo...

I'd love to just try that thing out, but alas, I would want stereo as well! I am assuming the stereo version, you plan on using one channel for nearfield and the other for the main sub system?

Dude way off. The 215 was calibrated to 75dB test tones which equates to reference (0.0) being 85dB typical with 105dB peaks. We were listening at -10 too IIRC. It got cranked higher than that a...

That's why I cross at 80-100hz to let the subs work their way into the midbass a little better. I've had very good results this way.
