Buttkicker Concert vs LFE

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
The web site product selection guide identifies LFE for HT and Gaming and not for pro music vs Concert simply for pro music.

I get it conceptually but where are the written reviews detailing the nuances?

The difference, besides the ohm load, is the emphasis of the bass. The concert version emphasizes 25-40 Hz, while the LFE emphasizes 5-25 Hz. I have the LFE version because I'm 90/10 movies vs music in my setup.

Thanks, i was looking to add the information on frequencies to further focus the question and discusion. In other words what does this mean for the user experience? What is either present, not present or
mispresented by "emphasis".

I am going to guess that a pro does do not want to feel music may not be heard hence the 25hz cutoff for Concert.

I don't know that commercial music source has low frequency content. < 25hz or <20hz - certainly not exclusive of other low frequency sound anyway so would not be able to tell the difference.

Thinking about it that way see every reason to go for the LFE with the added value for games and movies.

Not sure exactly, but I imagine it means that the concert is more sensitive in that range than the LFE, which is more sensitive in the lower. Range. I don't think either add to what's there, or worse, adds what's not there. If I understand it's just where the power is applied. Hopefully someone with more knowledge can chime in. I just know I LOVE the LFE i installed this weekend.

was told by buttkicker a while ago that the concert and the lfe are the exact same, asides from the ohm ratings. i have 6 of the concert versions (private labeled - 90 bucks a pop brand new back then hah) installed in my living room theatre, it is definitely very responsive in the 5Hz and up range.
