Where'd you come from?
Thought you gave up on this place?
You bought your pair of JTR Captivators yet? Just curious since you sure seemed to like these ported monsters (that stop at 15hz) at the blind meet in KC?
I'm not the only one who writes with unabridged enthusiam -- Let me pull an applicable quote direct from your keyboard for the 2012 KC Blind Subwoofer meet."This thing dominated music. I really hope it isn’t the Cap Pros because I’m going to be the butt of jokes and feeling stupid for months until Archaea forgets I say this (he won’t). These were BY FAR the best to me for music. Destroyed the music. Perfect. Articulate. Fun. Of course I think they are sealed, because sealed subs are the BEST FOR MUSIC, right? Man, I hope I’m right on at least that. Did I mention these absolutely "beast mode" the music?"http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showp...0&postcount=36
Then -- there was something about you grabbing me by the shoulders and begging me to tell you what Sub B was in advance of the results postings because you thought they sounded "4x's better" than anything else you heard that day during the music sessions?
BTW - Where's my steak dinner? You avoided me last visit to KC. Cheapskate.
In answer to your jab and the potential actual question associated for those new to the game -
I believe and have experienced that ULF only matters to the point of your hearing limits. I stop hearing at about 16 or 17hz, and so 15 or 20hz ported subwoofer tunes suite me just fine. I've yet to experience anything at 7, 8, 10hz on clips like the Black Hawk Down - Irene helicopter rotors, HTTYD, or WOTW unique to a sealed subwoofer as compared to a quality ported or horn. I just doesn't do a darn thing for me. Perhaps if I had a setup like kryptonitewhite, I would be able to feel those tones, but unless you have eight 18's you aren't going to feel that. And even if you feel it in single test tones it won't be present in real world material because real world material has frequencies that you can hear which will mask the ones you can't. If you want more tactile feedback - turn it up! Heck I've not felt anything special with ten 15's on five Submersive HPs in counsil's theater. I'd like to feel it, and I reserve the right to change my opinion --
But I've sure not felt it yet. If you've got it now with your DIY setup invite me back to Omaha, and I'll give it a go. Heck, I'll even bring my Captivators back over with my new Crown XLS-5000 for a round two!
