We may feel those stronger TR sensations and not want to crank the subs any more.

With sealed subs, especially in a smaller sealed room, it may not take as much low-frequency SPL to create pressure on the ear drums as it would in an open room, but we may also not have the same early warning of strong low-frequency tactile sensations that we would with ported subs. I have a large room, but I can seal it pretty tight when I want to. Even with ported subs, I can create that pressurization feeling when I want to. (I actually don't like that feeling in my HT.) But, I will already be experiencing a lot of low-bass TR before I get to that point, and I'm not as likely to keep cranking the bass or the overall volume level.

I think that sealed subs may just sneak up on us a little more sometimes, especially if the room is sealed to start with, and if we have enough SPL down in the 15Hz and lower range. Of course, it also takes the right kind of low-bass content to start with, and as others have noted, our susceptibility to those pressurization sensations may vary quite a bit.

For instance, I think I have always been more susceptible to ear drum pressure, from cabin pressurization on airplanes, and from scuba diving, than the average. So, it makes sense that similar SPL-driven cabin pressure might be more noticeable, or less pleasant, to people with that particular susceptibility.

Regards,
Mike
I totally agree Mike, through my sub journey I have found that I personally do not like the pressurization of strong sealed subs (dual S3010s) in my small sealed HT room. The pressure becomes overwhelming to me before I can get to the subs to the SPL levels I prefer for heavy TR and chest slam.

That being said, I am still experimenting and currently have 2 FV18s up front with a single S3010 directly behind me. The pressurization is much less in my room now and the TR and chest slam are insane due to the ported up front and the S3010 about 2 feet behind me.

The infinite possibilities available to finding and then optimizing ones personal taste in HT bass can be both exciting and infuriating at the same time. It's one of the things that keeps me interested in this hobby we all share. :-)

hopinator and mthomas47, I think you're onto something here. My wife and I had watched a number of movies with bass that slammed hard, but when we got to the beginning of Blade Runner 2049 she asked me to turn down the sound because it was hurting her ears. The bass definitely felt strong to me but I didn't think it was anything out of the ordinary, but perhaps there was more ULF than usual and having it cranked up hurt her ears.

It's an interesting thought to consider that the ULF many of us crave could end up being a problem or limiting factor in how much we can crank our subs to get the chest slam we also crave. For me I think the (sealed) XS30 in my open room is in something of a sweet spot, i.e. I wouldn't want to give up any ULF, but also generating significantly more ULF could mean having to turn down the overall level and losing mid-bass. Thanks for the food for thought.

the time has finally come, after a long 5 month wait my massive PSA shipment has arrived. my 11.2 system is now complete. I have a 210 front stage and 8 110s for surround and atmos. My room is just all speakers now , no room for walking. I am loving the sound of these tv36ipals. I have nothing to compare them too so i cant really give a good impression besides they pound like crazy, and get my whole couch and body shaking, sound superb to my untrained ear. was hoping you guys could take a look at my rew graph to let me know if there is anything i should fix or what not or point me in the right direction for some solid rew help. all help is appreciated. I upgraded from my very first sound system which was a Energy 5.1 Take Classic. Tom was fantastic to work with, and like everyone knows is the best when it comes to customer experience, i have nothing but amazing things to say.

I did not slide them around my room to find the best spot, i just dropped them in my optimal spot, set the gain to 9oclock, 0ms delay, room size in the middle, calibrated with audyessey and called it a day. My rew sweeps are not smoothed. Uploaded my rew file here: https://www61.zippyshare.com/v/LA4K54Uu/file.html.

Heres some pics of my theatre now, and how i mounted the 110sr's to my ceiling.

Look very good, except for your speakers cables management
On a more serious note, Enjoy. This will sound awesome

Yea thats the right one, i just downloaded and confirmed. I uploaded it earlier today just for this, it is saved straight from rew. Just be careful because the website might open a link when you press download, so just close the link and hit download again and it will open straight into rew.

About a month ago, I move one sub from the front of the room to the back. While the sub is 150lbs and not 250lbs like yours. The subs is 22lbs heavier than me, since I lost 52lbs from my body building days. Doing the old, slide one side at the time.

While I got it in place, a member than I respect a lot. Gave me heck on another thread, and rightly so. To remind me how easy it is to get an hernia.

When Tom gets time, he should look into White Glove Delivery Service. It would make a difference on my purchase decisions.

That "eye opens" scene has a ton of energy and it is sustained.

I think that's where a MiniDSP is a nice gadget when combined with REW. If you find that your ULF is overkill, you can tone it down and bump up the 50-80Hz still which is really where that slam comes from anyways. A lot of us, including me, have a upward slope in the ULF, but maybe a shelf makes more sense.

I've gotten a few quotes for that in the past. It adds anywhere from $650 to $950 based on the limited experience I have(maybe 3 quotes total).

I had an elliptical delivered and assembled for around $150. I believe it weight over 200 lbs. Getting ready to buy a treadmill delivered and assembled at the same price. If you could contract with a company in that price range, there may be a market. Of course, I could be wrong, but that would work for me.

I ordered a 70 in TV from a sketchy website that required me to pay 100 or 150 dollars for White glove. It was the delivery driver and me unloading it and not setting it up because it was cold out.

The very last thing I would pursue is another 3rd party being involved in the shipment, unpacking, etc of a freight shipment. I can't even imagine the potential nightmares that would bring with every. single. order.

Sometimes the best sale for any company is the one that goes to a competitor..

I think you should be very happy with response - it looks very good for an untreated room. As always, your ears are the best judge and it sounds like you're really enjoying your system. Congratulations again on such a nice setup!

Thanks man I really am enjoying it. The edge of tomorrow intro at reference was insane. I heard these drivers are hard to get to move a lot but they were sure moving a ton playing that intro. Id just like to thank all of you guys for spreading the great word about PSA. Before i found these threads i was going to go all in on the svs ultra setup, and im very happy i did not.

And sure it was

While I do like to listen to movies, at a fair loud volume. Reference level, is indeed insane. And value my hearing, way too much to listen at these level. And want to enjoy this hobby, for a very long time Since extreme SPL level, damage your hearing permanently over time.

You might be surprised how cheap movers can be. For people buying giant subs, can literally just pay a moving company to come out and move it to where you want and help you unbox it. Couple guys for an hour plus travel. They don't even need the truck.

It’s not very difficult and Tom packages these subs so they are pretty easy to deal with. I can’t fathom paying money to do this with the exception of Climber’s S7201 going up two flights of stairs.

I move my S7201's easily by myself in my listening room. Did have help getting them up in there since they wouldn't fit the stairway.

A pallet, a bobcat and in through an upstairs window. Honestly quick and easy.

Thanks. Good idea. After over a year of suffering with sciatica and back surgery, I am shy to lift anything heavy. I do not want to go through that again.

I have a bad back also, it for sure is not worth it. Just remember to get a copy of their insurance (in case they hurt THEIR back). I think when I had my subs moved into my house from my office (I shipped them there since I'm never home and have a stock room that can accept freight all day at the office) it cost me 150-160 including the 30 bucks I gave the guys as a tip. If I had someone at home to accept packages it would have been less obviously, since wouldn't have even needed a truck.

I'm going to do the same thing when I order my acoustic panels and

. They are fairly manageable on their own but going to be too big to fit in my suv unless I take like 6 trips and I don't want them left outside in the rain. Can call it a Bad Back Tax.

That picture reminds me of moving mine except I’m the wife (bad back) and my buddy did all the lifting. Honestly, the hardest part was tipping it back. Once on the dolly it was a breeze and since mine are laid on the sides it moved on the carpet with ease

Sometime, just buying a few beers after. Is worth-it

The last time I did that, was when installing a 40lbs projector. After struggling to fit this projector, into a very tight mount by myself.
I drove to my local Legion, and ask two friends if they had 10 minutes to spare. They did the lifting, I did the alignment to guide the projector in the sliding system.
Bought them both two beers, after I drove them to my place and back to the Legion since I was not drinking (I never drink and drive!!!). Took a whole 15 minutes, including the time driving.
One of the best $20, I spend

Thanks for the picture

I see you were using a truck, with a tailgate. Very useful for those situation
I hope, the person who took the picture. Was one of your kid, since your guys could have use this third person. To make the whole process easier.

Yep that was my daughter taking the picture. It was an exciting day for me, I had waited months for the first two TV36 subwoofers ever produced and I knew they were going to be a special sub. Trust me, I was VERY careful unloading and unpacking them. I was running on pure adrenaline in that picture.

Subwoofers: PSA TV36 iPal X2 ...Speakers: PSA MTM-210T L/R - PSA MTM-210C Center- PSA MT110SR's Surrounds - RSL C34E Atmos... Motion Actuators: Crowson Shadow 8 - X2

It’s not very difficult and Tom packages these subs so they are pretty easy to deal with. I can’t fathom paying money to do this with the exception of Climber’s S7201 going up two flights of stairs.

I wish I would have thought of this when I moved my quad t18s upstairs, back was sore for like 4 days
