Any thoughts from others?
Craig. Nice job with what you are doing. Unfortunately I can only relate to the subjective reviews. I just cant seem to get what the graphs mean.
Why did you stack the 113's?
Slybasil - In this room, the back left corner just happens to deliver smooth bass to all the listening positions. I have tried opposite corners, mid walls, etc ... and always end up with this configuration.
Of course, that is also the benefit of dual subs - by stacking them, I get a full 6 dB additional output ... separate them, and you only get 3 dB ... but, in some rooms, the smoothing effect of room peaks and nulls is more than a worthy tradeoff, and dual subs allows one to experiment. For your room, if you grab a 2nd fathom, try BOTH ideas ... stacking AND separate, and see what works for your room and tastes.
And you were right, these are GREAT subs.
