Two minds with but a single thought.... :) Have had to go out! Just got back. Have a job to finish and then it's Pro Time!
Mike - thanks very much! And thanks again for your never-ending encouragement and enthusiasm in this thread.
Hahaha! LOL!! Oh yes... I did choose black maple veneer for my F2s - not sure if it was air-dried though - LOL! But it looks as good as the F2s sound - mean, meaty and definitely not to be messed with - this is *serious* woofage.
That is seriously funny! LOL! Thanks for the congrats - I am grinning from ear to ear, the system has never sounded nearly so awesome.
Thanks! Now that is some high quality sh*t you have lined up there!! Wow!
Thanks Brolic... I have joined the Serious Woofage set at last. I have calibrated with Audyssey Pro today, then tweaked a little using the OmniMic and I am very, very happy. It's not just the sheer quantity of bass, although that is prodigious (I am almost flat to 15Hz and only a little down at 10Hz and 7Hz) - it is also the quality of the bass as you and the other guys know already. Beautifully tight, controlled bass that seduces me every time I play something (which I have done non-stop since getting them). A full report will follow when I can drag myself away from the HT.
Yeah - better late than never (definitely!). Thanks Max. It was you who set me on this road some time back, for which I will be forever grateful.
Thanks audioguy. I am limited on placement in my small Brit-style room, but the room is extensively treated and I use Audyssey Pro (on an XT32-equipped Onkyo 5509 prepro) and have an OmniMic for final tweakery. The result is amazingly good.
When I ordered the pair of F2s I didn't really consider how small my room is - I just kinda ordered a pair because I have had dual subs for ever and am committed to the benefits they bring, so when I decided to order the F2s, I just automatically asked Mark for two. Then I started to wonder if I had gone too far and it would be too much for the room. But there's no way! They are magnificent in this small room so I guess the axiom is correct and I am the living proof: you can never have too much woofage!
LOL!!! You are seriously addicted... not even got them out of the boxes and already considering two more! I love it. :)
:) Yes, WOTW was the first disc I played after calibrating. The easiest way to sum it up is that I'd never actually heard it before, despite having seen the movie several times.
WRT to the 240v amps, I am not sure about those in my circs. I am more than willing to upgrade, but wonder if, with two F2s in a room that's about 1000 cu ft, I will actually benefit all that much - I know it's not just about power, but my F2s are presumably on tickover almost all the time, so do you think I would benefit, really, from the amp upgrade? Heck it won't be hard to convince me - the bragging rights alone would be worth the money - but if I'm not going to hear a benefit .... Also, I'm not sure where the gain control is set on the F2s as, due to their position, I have to do it by 'feel', but I know it's pretty close to the absolute bottom of the dial - I'm not even sure I could set it right if I had the 2400 watt amps - whaddya think Max?
