well i have set my mind for IB ..and you pointed the reason why
i don't see why i would use ANY OTHER configurations than IB since the design of my house (by meyself) allows it!
there are a few reasons why i have chose line arrays for my HT
the importants are :
- less distortion for the same SPL wich is important in HT
- more dynamics
- possibility to place from 4 to 8 people in the sweet spot for all the drivers in the room ... ( nearfield on all loudpseakers ..and i don't need /want reflections )
now that leaves 1 area lagging, and it is sub-bass room response
for 4-8 people ..wihc is hard to do normally
that is why i am interested in the "planar wave" thing of this thread
so please , teach me more about setting up my IB subwoofers array
to get this effect ...i will probably settle for a 1-2' depth of foam at the back of the room so i do not believe i will need the cancelling woofers at the back
i prefer leaving 8 more woofers at the front and get lower cleaner spl bass
how to achieve a good planar wavefront with subwoofers?
i understand that the placement vs the sidewalls is critical?
will that remove all side and floor/ceiling modes for bass?
( well ALL is never achieved..so "most" would be probably more correct
let me know the theory under this pleasE!
