My Paradigm dealer left me with these words:
"Are you sure that you want to buy an inferior product out of the box and it will not have PBK room correction?"
"Ultimately you are the one losing the most.....you will have an inferior sub."
I cannot wait until I take a picture of the S7201, send it to him and get the last laugh.
I am very lucky to have an understanding girlfriend. You know how they say it is always better to ask for forgiveness than permission? Well that worked out in my favor hahaha, especially going from the piano black finish/form factor of the Sub 2 to the [two] S7201. I own my house but my girlfriend lives with me and it is technically "her space too". I originally was going to put it along the 7ft wall that separating the foyer from the kitchen (diagram attached), however, to my surprise my girlfriend suggested putting the second one along the wall behind the dining room table!
With the second S7201 in the dining room do you think I should have the driver end facing the corner or pointed toward the kitchen?
I'll post pictures and impressions when they arrive. I am travelling the next couple days but will have access to a computer on Sunday again; don't think I am ignoring my new fam
Congrats. The 1st thing you have to do is have your girlfriend's friends take her out for a few drinks the day of the sub-delivery because when she gets home and see's the twin towers for the 1st time she is going to *****
. The 2nd thing you have to do is thank the Paradigm dealer for selling you a faulty sub because you just struck gold with PSA. Ok, let's talk about setting the Twin Towers up. I highly recommend you go buy a mic and download REW on a computer/laptop because without it you will not be getting the full potential of these beasts. The way I'm looking at your layout it looks like you will have both subs in or near a corner and right across from each other. You have 32ft from the front living room wall to the back dining room wall and in my theater room I'm at 30ft from front to back and I have 2 of my subs in the same spots except my front left sub is pulled out a little from the front and side wall. I get a great response/graph with 2 of my subs in that configuration with the drivers facing each other. Now, the only concern I see is that 3.5ft wall that extends halfway into the room and that is when REW and a Mic comes in to play. Also since the sub in the dining room is closer to the MLP than the sub in the living room you would need to adjust the delay on the dining room sub and a Mic and REW is needed. Slowly adjust the delay, run a sweep. Repeat the process over and over if you see the frequency response improving and then stop when you see it having a negative effect. The goal is to achieve a 4-6db gain throughout the measured sweep with the 2nd sub and help fill any nulls. Congrats again!!! I have a feeling you are going to be blown away by the Twin Towers.
