Yeah Uno, thanks. I got the sub on Monday and had a buddy of mine come over and help me set-up. He's a Paradigm owner as well (Sig's and Servo sub-big system). We spent some time listening, moving the sub, listening, moving....he has enlightened me as to how the bass should really sound.
The big difference in the step up to the Studio's from the Monitor's is the soundstage. Now I know what people mean when they discuss that. I do hear things I didn't hear before and dialogue is sooo much better. The bass is cleaner, tighter, and less 'boomy' than the DSP-3400 I had. Part of that though is that the Sub-12 is now more away from the corner of the room than the 3400 was. I wasn't using the 3400 correctly.
Last night was the first night I had to just sit and take this system for a spin. I watched 'Night and Day' the Cruise/Diaz movie. Nice balance of dialogue and action to compare and enjoy. I tweaked the sub volume just a hair but all in all I am very, very happy. I can't imagine a system with TWO sub-12's......just awesome. The Sub-12 is a pitbull-love it.....and expect it to sound better after break-in.
I will post picture next week because I would like more comments about my three walled room. I'm sure many people have the same room acoustic challenge I have and I want to squeeze as much good sound as I can out of this arrangement. I'd love to get my hands on a used PBK to calibrate this sub.
The Rosenut finish is just beautiful-I was a coat of paint shy of getting the Cherry.
