One word:
Ridiculous!!!

Have you watched Tron Legacy yet in there with all that glorious bass??

very nice setup! You should definately watch tron -- very good bass LFE.

Really enjoyed checking out your system a couple weeks ago Doug. You have some killer equipment and one of the most enveloping surround sound setups I have been in!

Okay, so I have had one heck of a time getting Audyssey XT32 (calibrated with Audyssey Pro) to play nice with my new Seaton SubMersive HPs. Between Audyssey not correctly setting the delays (distances) and totally f'ing up the frequency response I decided to buy a Behringer DCX2496. I can't believe how much better my subs sound now.

You can follow how I used the DCX2496 to correctly set the delays and gains for all my subs here...

The real proof is in graphs. I posted them over at the shack but I'll post them here as well.

Audyssey off (green) and Audyssey on (light blue... looks worse than the before) sweeps before the addition of the DCX...



Audyssey off (green) and Audyssey on (light blue... much better) sweeps WITH the DCX in the mix...



I should mention that I moved one of my subs before I calibrated the DCX (and ran Audyssey) last night. That's some of the reason why the two before (green) sweeps look a bit different.

At any rate, I am very happy with the results to say the least.

Wait-What?! 5 SubMersive HP and 4 Empires?!!!
Thats almost 15,000 Watts of WOOFAGE!

BEYOND AWESOME!!!


If you have a moment I would love to hear your subjective impressions of how the SubMersive HP compared to the SVS Ultra.

Thx,
Claude

The Seaton SubMersive HP is an incremental improvement upon the SVS PB13-Ultra (in the 15Hz tune).

They both have similar output capabilities with the following exceptions. The SubMersive has more output from 15Hz down and 30Hz up. The Ultra has more output from 15 - 25Hz.

The Ultras have a unique ported sound, which isn't a bad thing. I particularly enjoyed it for HT. The Seaton is a bit more articulate with music, but only slightly.

The Ultra is a tough act to follow, but I feel the Seaton is worth the slight premium in price.

Wow, Bass Maniac! Very cool in my opinion. Curious; what's your all time favorite LF demo material, that really makes visitor's jaws drop? Music, movies or both...?

Spreading the drive signal accross so many voice coils, typically results in a fantastic absense of any significant compression,.thus it must be very responsive.

Have you noticed the thermal load all those power supplies and output sections dump into your HT space? Really cool. Also, have you seen any evidence of your four circuits limiting you in any respect? I don't believe I've seen a typical residential/non-dedicated HT, with as many individual electrical loads from various devices,...and many of which are big amplifiers.


Thanks for sharing

Wow what a difference that DCX made! I could almost plank the after graph it's so flat. Nicely done, I bet it sounds fantastic now with far less warble and various dips and humps than before. Those Seatons are probably very smooth, I'm jealous.

Looks Awesome Counsil! Cant wait to see new pics of all that woofage.
post #76 of 83
Counsil... my man, this is an awesomely epic HT room. My kind of place with all those subwoofers. Very cool, bro.
post #77 of 83
We still going to go ATV'ing this year? Only 2 months left!
post #78 of 83
Let's see.......how would my 'ol man put it.....oh yeah, I wish I had your subs and you had a feather up your back side, then we'd both be tickled.
post #79 of 83
Well I am sure I am not the only one thinking it... but, When are you having people over to watch Tron Legacy? I'm a busy student but I would definitely drive across country to hear those subs...

All jokes aside, you have an awesome set up Counsil.

Keep living the dream man,

peace

In the audyssey pro thread... did I read that right? You sold your 4311? Looks like you had it working pretty good. What did you replace it with? And why?
post #81 of 83
Awesome setup! I can only dream of such a place!!

One thing i've to ask and pardon me but really curious: How are those subs connected? In 9.2/11.2 setup there is only room for 2 subs

How can one connect more than two subs?

I would like to add 2 more subs in my HT.

Thank you!

I will try to help since Counsil does not visit this thread very often. I have 4 subs hooked up to my 9.2 system simply using y adapters. I have 2 near the seats coupled together and 2 on the front and rear walls coupled together. I ran audyssey then did a few individual adjustments, it worked out pretty good.

Thank you g_bartman!

Thats what I was thinking.. so for someone to add more sub they basically will use more Y adapters?

Wont there be any loss of signal in spliting this way?

And is this the only way to add more sub?

Have a happy holidays All!
