I didnt ask who said it. When you quote something, at least try to follow what was said in the quote i.e when you compare 1 vs 2 subs, do it for the same brand and same model.

I hope you have figured out by now that you have absolutely no credibility in this forum. Most likely it is because all you do is "cut and paste" stuff. For a guy who claims himself to be scientific, you don't back up your arguments with any scientific facts other than cutting and pasting subjective opinion of others. You also say that scientific facts are not necessary to prove a point and you also deny scientific facts or measurements if they are not favorable to your argument.

BTW who the heck is Dr. Geddes. Is he like the "Einstein" of subwoofers? LOL

Next time, at least quote some of his measurements, if he has done any, instead of just his subjective opinions.

Dr Earl Geddes is a renowned acoustic scientist... you see his work quoted by lots of pretty knowledgeable folk. Dr Earl Geddes and Dr Floyd Toole both have a portfolio of influential white papers that are commonly cited.

Their cheapest speaker is $1500/each. No thanks. Why aren't they making a powered sub if they have so much experience? It is one thing to write a lot of theoretical stuff but another thing to make an "affordable" product. Anyway.. outside the topic. SVS SB12 should be good enough for my needs and budget smile.gif

To be honest, I really don't even think about, not at all. At over 8,000 post and counting, I don't think about it all.

If I also "cut and paste" subjective opinions that I read on the internet, over and over, I would also hit 8000 posts!

Many of those 8,000 post were accumulated in the display technology forums. There, Dr. Raymond Soniera was the expert I most often cited.

Not surprised. That's what you do most of the time i.e quote/cite subjective opinions of other people. Just because they have a PhD, it does not make their opinions any less subjective or any more objective than others. The only Raymond I know is Ray Romano of "Everybody Loves Raymond" :-)

When I read a review of a speaker or sub, I care less about all the preamble and the "bla bla bla" the reviewer writes. I go straight to the measurement section.

I have never seen you use objective measurements to back any of your arguments in the sub forum. Stop quoting subjective opinions of other people and your post count would come down over the next 5 years :-)

Dr. Soniera is a respected display technology expert. He is equiivalent to what Dr. Geddes is in subwoofer set up, to video display technology.

Who cares. Opinions are subjective, no matter who they are.
post #733 of 817
Next time you cite Geddes or whoever in this forum, dont just cite subjective opinions. Quote objective tests/measurements.

Whenever you cite expert opinion its considered credible evidence. That is something you need to understand, expert opinion isn't the same as a regular layperson opinion.

An expert's opinion is credible only when corroborated by objective test/measurements. Otherwise an expert's opinions is as subjective as anyone's opinion.

Long story short: Stop "cutting and pasting" subjective opinions of any kind without the corresponding objective information and the original context. I don't have anything else to add.

An expert's resume is how you determine whether is no his opinion is credible. Anyway, an expert's opinion carry more weight and credibility than a layperson.

Almost anybody can click and paste another's opinion. What experience can you personally bring to this thread? Is there anything pertaining to bass that you've learned on your own that you can enlighten us with?

It should say: Welcome to the AVS forum where arguments are abound.

The trouble with this argument is that only one side has facts. The other believes that ULF is a Nazi plot to damage our very beings. Or something like that. rolleyes.gif

Nonetheless, arguments are abound in the AVS forum. BTW, you really need stop using the "Nazi" word to generate bias against science and facts. We all will agree that Nazis were some real bad folks,however that doesn't mean that did not have advanced science and knowledge.

Auditor, it was you who first brought up both paranormal and Nazi experiments in ULF to attempt to substantiate your outlier views on ULF impact to human physiology. In no way was my using that term a reference to anything other than your post on the same topic. Nice try at avoiding your own history, but if you want me to provide links to your original discussion, I'm happy to do the search.

There would be a lot fewer arguments on AVS if you stuck to science and not your personal views of how you believe audio works.

No, I cited some information regarding the Nazi expirementation with infrasounds from a paranormal website. Not that expirimenting with infrasounds belongs in the paranorma field. I think the study of infrasounds, that were conducted by the Nazis, ended up on paranormal website is because the Nazis were also heavily into the occult. However, as I have said, the Nazis also had advanced science, engineering and knowledge.

^^^^

Bottom line, however you choose to spin it now, is that you did bring Nazi's into the equation in the posts I referred to. So let's not try to take my reference out of context and turn it into something it clearly is not.

No, I'm not that ego driven as to ignore those with advanced knowledge in order to make myself look big.

I don't think I brought up the subject of Nazis expirementing with infrasounds in this thread. This thread is supposed to be about SVS Sealed Subs, I've tried to stay on that subject. I would like to hear from more SVS sealed sub owners than discuss Nazis and infrasounds in this thread.

The updated model of the SB13 has been posted today -- seems they dropped the previous driver used and are now using a modified Ultra drive. Looks promising...

the previous model used a modified Ultra driver, so it should be the same driver.

Well its back up to $1600 regular price. However the finish, looks and or appearance is indeed a upgrade, I guess that somewhat justify the price increase.
