I thought I would chime in on the Port noise drama that seems to be brought up every few weeks. My buddy bought a V3601 and I went to his house and ran REW and found the best location up front as he did not want the sub anywhere in the rear. His house is huge and the sub is in his family room on the 1st floor which is open to the entire 1st floor. The sub anchors his 4K tv and sits an inch to the left of his tv and measures +/- 4.5db before running ODY. I raised the sub trim 8db hot after running AUDY and listened to some demanding movie scenes and music and the 1st words that come to my mind is BUTTER. Every scene or song was as smooth as butter. I did not hear a hint of port noise and I also engaged Dynamic EQ on some material and the sound still had that smooth as butter feeling. I'm going to be back at his house in a few weeks to throw some more material at it and he's already talking about adding a 2nd
. I think we can finally put the port noise drama to bed.
