Gotta say, back in the ... er ... older days, Bose actually made some fairly impressive speakers (901s and 601s). I owned 901s for a couple of decades. Huge wall of sound and could take as much...

Bummer. Did you try this: If the needed file doesn't exist, therefore the desired owners manuals is missed in our database. It can be ordered in the File Request section.

If this is the first time you've seen Lone Survivor, you'll be highly impressed. Great movie and hard hitting LFE. Enjoy!

No, I use no dyn eq. No need, but that's probably room dependent. I've setup my 3.1 system similar to your 5.1 setup and run the sub about 3 dB hot. I'm waiting to run cabling (up the walls & thru...

Small world, huh :). I tested 3 sealed subwoofers in my home. In general, all were good with most music, but the Ultra came out ahead. However, on one particular piece of music (one of my favorite...

The word "crush" isn't a term I'd use between the Ultra and XS30se. Better for movies? Definitely. Crush? Not in my house :).

Again, your room volume is 62.87 cubic meters or 2,220 cubic feet. It's only a medium size room (1,500 to 3,000 cu. ft. = medium size). Yes, the PB-2000 is big, but if you want impressive LFE...

It depends upon listening habits and what you are looking to feel from a subwoofer. You have a medium size volume, so a single PB-2000 should suffice. If you have a large seating area and are...

Wow, that's a lot of audio equipment for that price. Should make you feel you robbed them :cool:. Congratulations! The Outlaw is a great sub and I know the R5Bi's are great speakers. Enjoy.

You're welcome, spike. And do indeed audition them, along with some conventional speakers. And have fun. I really enjoyed my time when I was auditioning speakers and subwoofers.

The R5Bi's are far better than their price would ever indicate (yep, I own them), however they...
