So despite not being excited about the size of these, I have been playing around with them and enjoying the sound. I have tried all sorts of crossover settings. I strongly prefer the 80hz crossover between the 12” and the htm-8. I ran the 12 up higher and didn’t like it. I like stronger bass, so the level didn’t match up right with the crossover up that high, and having the inuke cranked a little extra. But it’s a pleasant sound for sure! Satisfying bass in my open room, the highs are clear and not too bright in this untreated space, and even when in my kitchen cooking or eating, the speakers sound good! So I’m happy. I will be building 2 more ported subs for the buyout 15s I have here. Those I’ll try with the HT8’s I picked up and built. I’m thinking that will fit this space better, have deeper extension and more spl, and not block the tv! Hey I’ll admit. Not all of my ideas are great.
