My plan is to place them as they are now, just on top of the BOSS. I’ve got a 6k coming for my Crowsons and I’ll power the JBLs off the 3k I have now. I only use the Mini dsp; I don’t like the software for the INukes/NX amps. From everything I’ve read I’ll have to put a filter on the BOSS, but sill plan on running the Crowsons filterless; unless the added power makes them distracting. Right now I don’t get much out of them above 35hz or 40hz.
I will add that I typically don’t watch a movie WITHOUT my Crowsons having BEQ applied. But, no other filters.

If you place the Crowsons under the BOSS platform, then you’re coupling that to the ground, although it might not be that noticeable, it’s still not floating the platform for maximum wobble. I believe
pointed this out to me and that was their reason for the double platform design. They have done a lot of extensive testing, so I went with their advice.
In the coming weeks, I might actually try to eliminate the top platform under the couch and see how it responds, as I’m not loving the added height from the double riser.
Another other thing I noticed is when I have my feet on the BOSS platform, I can definitely tell which device is giving me the most TR. Since the Crowsons are in the back of the seating, there’s a definite difference in energy coming from each area of the seating when resting my feet on the plywood, but with the seating reclined it eliminates the directional feeling of the TR if that makes sense. It’s almost like having your legs directly coupled to an actuator which is a weird feeling and not something I honestly care for. This could be remedied by having the couch platform come out much further for my feet to rest on that instead of the BOSS platform, but I’m not building another one.
. And my wife already isn’t a fan of the much larger BOSS platform, she didn’t think it would be noticeable like the smaller one that fits right under the seating that wasn’t able to be seen.
Playing The Hulk street fight scene made this clearly evident, because it’s like getting a seriously strong jolt to the feet and legs with a more subtle effect in the rest of my body that has some energy absorbed from the cushioned seating.
This unusual sense of stronger TR across different parts of the body could maybe be eliminated with different Crowson placement or possibly setting a more negative delay on the BOSS than the Crowsons. Lots to play with now! I have a couple days off now so will be experimenting.
Edit: so after playing a few more movie demos, I’m afraid to modify this setup in any way it’s that good. The TR and experience is absolutely insane. I’ll let the double riser stand for a while and see how things shake out.
