I've been only lurking around here since I've been more engaged in the projector part of the forum as of late, but I've enjoyed seeing you nerds getting excited for what Tom and his crew have been brewing up for you. I'm eager to see what the feedback is on these new offerings.
I finally had a friend (Dan) over Monday who has moved to the area and building a new home. Dan's got a quasi-dedicated room planned similar to ours and has been wondering if his dual Hsu VTF-2 Mk5 subs would be enough to energize his larger basement space (by about 1200 cubic feet). When I told him I was using twin 18" subs in my space he was skeptical that they would overpower the room and not be very tight.
So we played around a bit with BR 2049, Lucy, and Kong: Skull Island and Dan couldn't believe how powerful, heavy, detailed, and controlled the bass was from the twin V1811s. He also brought along a Lee Ritenour Blu-ray concert he owns so he could listen to familiar material. So I gave Dan the remote as I had to finish getting dinner ready for the rest of our company and I told him to have fun. Dan told me he wouldn't be long and would join us after a few minutes...which turned into twenty five minutes...good thing I was a little behind with dinner. But he really enjoyed the subs and talked about how he was second-guessing using the Hsu subs in the new basement.
Lucy, BR 2049, and Interstellar have revealed a couple of rattles in the room, but I'll consider that a good problem to have even though I'll need to remove can light trim and dampen things a bit.
