Remember that yours are uncorrected numbers (see) and depending on which RatShack meter you have, the numbers are below the actual output.
It did stick around a bit below 23hz but it was not very present at 19hz which is the bottom of the advertised response range.
Firstly I have the analog meter. I placed the meter about 5 feet away from the sub pointing towards a woofer(somewhat behind the sub such that the port was on the far side) and the meter was resting on a hardwood table. I then adjusted the volume so that 40hz was 80db and then started dropping the hz and recording numbers. I am using the LFE connection with the receiver crossover at 80hz and the subs freq turned to the highest hz(which shouldn't matter for this anyways?).
To provide some more 'refined' or correct numbers what steps would you take to measure the spl?
Additionally if I were to place it in a corner what 'general' configuration would you put the sub considering it is side firing.
Regarding the possible input options available. I have the option for the hi-level speaker wire input. Should I use the LFE or double connect the hi-level at the receiver to go to the speakers and to the sub?
glad I was able to give you a laugh. The VK-12 is a bit bigger than the T300 which to me would matter. Then again I look at these subs and think that a bigger box is generally a more efficient way of creating bass. I will try to give some more feedback once I get a chance to shuffle it around and set it up.
