I could make guests queesy with 4 but could only cause actual browning of the pants maybe 15% of the time. Perhaps 35% of the time if deviled eggs, whiskey or steamed cauliflower were involved. A full 8 should jack that up to 45% of guests having full loss of bowel control. Increased chance of panic attacks, vertigo, dimentia and asphyxiation by sub-bass should result as well.
Not much truthfully. On some tracks WOTW's HTTYD, etc...I still could not quite get to REF level playback without worrying about the safety of the drivers due to sub bass excursion. This is with the bass boosted to flat into the 6-7Hz range. +12dB boost of a 20Hz low shelf with a 20Hz parametric EQ cut is what is required in the old room. 4200 cubes. I don't typically listen near that loud but it bugs me that I have to be careful when I crank it with a new movie. If I wasn't trying to maintain flat response down into Hades in a very lossy room it wouldn't be a concern. Basically the amps have a little more juice than the drivers can comfortably handle at 4500w per driver. I don't know whether mechanical damage would actually occur or amp clipping first (I think clipping?) but I don't really want to find out the expensive way. Enter 6dB worth of extra displacement.Edited by Ricci - 7/20/12 at 7:48am
