We listen to all kinds of music, although I'd say most falls into the general category of "rock". In roughly descending order: classic rock, blues-rock, blues, modern/alternative rock, metal, classical, modern pop, flamenco, trance, jazz.
The Growler web page
says the frequency response is 41-125 Hz +/- 3 dB.
Unpowered, the Captivator is actually in my price range. But, would I need to add my own crossover, in addition to an amp? I'm using a Harman Kardon HK-3490 as a pre-amp, and it doesn't provide any bass management.Edit:
for a living room, although I personally tend to like the plain look of the JTR stuff. I think the fancy term for it is "understated".
