Subwoofer Recommendations under $500? - Page 2

post #31 of 34
I think his impressions have more to do with his imagination than reality. They are so much alike that the differences should be barely perceptible. Same driver, same design, same ports, almost the same amp. The only thing that is different is the enclosure size, and a few settings in the amp to reflect that, and that is only going to change the tuning point, I don't know how that would affect bass above there. If you are expecting a certain difference when you are listening to them, you could end up hearing it regardless of whether it exists or not.

Another potential candidate would be the Cadence CSX15. If you opt to go that route let me know and I can PM you some information about a way to possibly get a "coupon code" for a discount. The Acoustic Audio HD-SUB15 is probably similar to the PA-150 and CSX15, so that's another one.


Something else to consider is getting duals, to try and balance out the sound. That can often help in a large space like what you have. A couple that might be worth looking into are the Polk Audio PSW505, Dayton Audio SUB1200 or BIC F12
.

Now that Josh Ricci has tested the Cadence CSX 15 for Audioholics you might want to reconsider recommending it. Only 2.5 stars out of 5.

This is a mid-bass module. Even Josh mentions the CSX15 MKII as a mid-bass module...

(Emphasis mine)

You agree a perceptible difference would be noticable; yet, it is my imagination.

I referenced one scene on one movie. I noticed a difference in that one scene. I didn't say they were vastly different. If you feel I am delusional, you may stop by and listen to them one after the other.

For the record, I am not the only one who heard a difference between the two in my house with that scene.

It could be that, since the EX has slightly more deep bass output, the deep bass obscured some of the mid bass in the movie scene you were watching. If that is the case, it can't be said that the Plus would have better mid or upper bass, it would just have lesser deep bass, since you could probably achieve an identical result be simply placing a high pass filter on the EX.
