RMK has "the" reference HT setup front a standpoint of what is commercially available to the public at a realistic price and form factor (obviously my subjective stance). We can consider products from Internet Direct (ID) companies "commercial" products, right?
I told RMK that if he ever got off his @$$ and organized his thread I wanted to reference his thread to people in your EXACT situation.
That said, I know this isn't a subwoofer specific thread, but since it happens to be a pretty hot topic I'm surprised no one has pointed you to Data-Bass
I'm on my cell, so I can't get into as much detail as I would like, but check out Data-Bass for some good objective info.
Someone needs to PM me so we can setup sending Ricci a OS for him to test and throw up on the site. Scratch that, I'll see Jeff this weekend...
The design and capability of the OS has been frequently compared to the GJALLARHORN currently on DB.
If you could swing LCR Noesis and 2 OS, you would literally never have the need to upgrade again. Ever... Done...
