I still use my other subs as fill (Epik Empire and two velo 12's) and the whole room feels really balanced. The OS's (and I'm sure other horn loaded subs) are really in another category...don't you think?
RMK, now that I have one OS it is hard to imagine using two, it must be unreal. Then again when i got my first sub I though that was a lot of bass too.
Oh one question for OS owners, mine did not seem to go into any kind of stand by mode last night. Does this unit need to be manually shutdown after use, is there a standy by mode or do you just leave it on?
Well I'm sold on horn loaded subwoofers and two is very real
... as in a visceral, deep, controlled bass output that never feels strained even on the most challenging material. Two of these is all anyone would ever need.
You bring up a good point in the compatability of the OS's and the T12's. They are a perfect match but they do require some space and power to really do their thing. I feel like I am running my system at about 25% capacity most of the time (not a bad thing).
That said, this is all very sub-jective
