You don't need good color vision to calibrate, you need a meter. Your eyes can't accurately see how far away (and how) you are from the targeted standard anyway. Now, for enjoying the fruits of a...

I just bought a new Mirage S10 and it's a great sub. Goes deep and definitely has sufficient output for a small room.

Stay away from the Polk. I had one of their low end subs, they're not good.
