I sent an E-Mail to Chad last week and I haven't gotten a response yet. I'll post it here in an attempt to help make my decision.
Thanks for any input.
I am very happy with the Dynasty and I am considering adding an Empire to the system. I have been reading up on them at AVS. My questions revolve around the benefits of this arrangement. I currently have an Antimode on the Dynasty and was going to connect a second Antimode to the the Empire.
I believe that the sweet spot for the Empire is higher than the Dynasty. Is this true? Will the Empire fill in a tighter mid range bass? If so, what would be the best way set these up together? Should I set the crossover knob on the Dynasty lower (currently at 150 and fed via LFE cable) and the Empire higher? I currently have the Onkyo receiver crossover set at 80.
Are there any problems with trying to put two different Epik subs / types of Epik subs together?
Here is my environment (please see attachment):
In the diagram the viewable area is 20' wide to the stairs and 31' deep from the front wall to the back wall. 9' ceilings should give me roughly 5580 cubic feet. This does not include the open air area going to the kitchen.
NOTE: The projection TV is now replaced with a flatscreen on the wall where the projection TV was and the AV rack is gone (now under the flatscreen). I now have a space where the AV rack was. The Empire will go here or the Legends will go on both sides of the couch/"listening area" as end tables.
I have a pretty big space to fill. Would dual Legends added to my Dynasty be better than a single Empire with my Dynasty?
I would like to order an Empire or Legends soon. Your thoughts on this would be appreciated.
