Need some help from the LPS08 users. I'm putting together a 2.1 system for my teenage son's 10x12 bedroom. The usage will be 40% music, 40% gaming, 20% home theater.
Got some NOS Mirage Nanosats and a used Denon AVR 1705 that will be digitally connected to his PC. But he'll need a new sub. I'm leaning heavily towards either the Mirage MM6 (currently onsale for $199 and equivalent to the Energy ESW-M6) and the Lava LPS08. How musical is the LPS08? The sub will need to fill in the bass for the Nanosats well up to 120hz (low end starts for the Nanosats at 110hz). And will the amp have enough headroom for that 70 watt Denon HTR?
I realize the LPS08 will be the better sub for below 40hz (which is where the MM6 stops). Although that's not necessarily a plus since my son lives with my EX. Heavy, room shaking thump will not endear me with her (and, consequently, 10" subs are out of the question). But then again, a little extra lower end bass won't hurt if he can restrain himself on the volume.
