It is a misnomer; I meant to say abundant headroom.
I did some subjective testing yesterday after re-running Audyssey due to some new room treatments and the addition of Auralex Great Gramma's for the Captivators. I used the Chapter 6 plane crash scene from Knowing. First, I ran the Captivators and Danley's and then just the Captivators. From the first row I could not tell much difference with the Danley's off. Since the second row is on top of the Danley's there was a loss of tactile shaking in the second row but the audible impact bass was very close even from that seating position.
It seems to me that the Captivator's provide 90+% of the bass I hear/feel in the room. I did not look at the response in the room while doing this test but I intend to do that this weekend. Bottom line is the Danley’s are not going anywhere and I still get a kick (pun intended) out of them when sitting in the second row. But as far a bang for the buck, the Captivators are the clear winner.
