Haha, yeah, that's why I said I'd rather have it be my room than my sub. At least I could possibly find a better spot by moving it around, but if its the sub im SOL.

I recently bought a pair of Monitor Audio RX8's and RX center and gained some nice bass from the RX8's .

I would add another EX and keep tweeking till you get it!

Don't get your hopes up. The last secret sale was not very exciting for subwoofer enthusiasts.

Very true. It seemed like the secret door just held the junk they couldn't sell at regular price. That's not even getting into the technical difficulties they had.

Too true, but in the mean time they have had some separate sub sales that some of us have taken advantage of here. What's wrong wtih that?

There are things I like that are rarely on sale in the stores or from the on line merchants I buy from. That doesn't mean the products or the merchant is bad, it simply may mean that the products are good enough tht they don't NEED to be on sale. Could be the same for these Outlaw sales. I can't bash them for not selling what I like at a discount.

Jeeez, I wish the local Audi dealer would have a great deal on an A7. How foolish are they for not putting it at deep discount because I happen to like it and want one. They must be terrible people who don't listen to their customers. (Or is it the other way around...)

I was going to take advantage of their last sub sale that ended recently but then the new ragtop came in for my mid-life crisis convertible. It was either get a new roof or buy something to blow the roof off.

Oh yeah. Don't hold your breath for anything worthwhile for the "secret sale" but...who knows?

Nothing at all. Just last time there was a bunch of grumbling in this forum about it because people did get their hopes up. I certainly wouldn't count on it because they typically seem to have a major sale on the subs later every summer. So I wouldn't be surprised after that deal on the Plus if they don't have any sub deals until then.

Yea I'll wait till they have another sale on the Ex to go with my other EX.Need another end table. But might be interested in a 5 channel amp to go with my Onkyo 809 and Klipsch RF82.

I've played some audio test tones that shook the walls but, there wasn't anything like that in this movie. Not sure if my expectations were too high or I'm having other issues. I've got a couple theories...

I downloaded the movie from my fav torrent site and played it through my onkyo 609 from my lap top. Maybe it's the quality of the file? It's supposed to be a blu-ray rip... The file details say it has a 447kbps bit rate, 6channels and 4khz sample rate..Not sure what that all really means?

When I ran audyssey the sub came in at -1dB with the dial on ~2 on the back of the sub and I have bumped it up 3dB's. I understood this to be somewhat the norm for those who like their bass hot. Am I not hot enough? I had the AVR dial somewhere in the low 50's...

Maybe it's the room placement? My living room is small and much of the wall space is consumed by the couch, love seat and recliner so my placement options are limited. It's placed about 4ft from a corner against the loveseat if that makes any difference.

I'm really just not sure if I'm expecting too much or I have a problem.... Any ideas? The movie itself sucked so I'm reluctant to buy the blu-ray....

it was probably the source. the bass on that movie is ridiculous. if you don't want to buy it renting it is an option. or borrowing it.
post #6046 of 7087
i had the same problem, but WITH a BR...i think it's my room or more likely the placement of my sub.

Hi thebriman, just finished watching and on that battle attack scenes ... all I can say is the BASS GOES BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM ... just awesome!

These EX's just ROCK!

The Grey was a thriller with emotional sadness and has some room shaking scenes.

Next up Chronicle, my EX's needs a fix.

The EX was 549, not 499 (I should know, I bought one). It was the plus that was selling for 499 recently.

I too was hoping to see the monoblocks on sale.

Yup, I got mine to for $549 and I got the plus for $499. Appently from the other thread, we will not be seeing the $549 again! I just cannot believe the EX went on sale. I just bought the plus and as soon as I seen the email I knew the EX would be on. $600 is still a buy. I would have paid the extra $100 for the EX over the plus, but so be it. I may take a look at one of the amps.

Again, their Secret Sales are always disappointing but you know Murphy's Law...soon as you ignore the next one, that'll be the one where they offer what you're looking for.
post #6058 of 7087
I'm not disappointed at all. Its a great sale price and their model 7900 is going for a great price.

$550 / $600 isn't too much of a difference. Still a damn good value sub
