It was defenitely the best my setup has sounded.. or felt maybe is more correctly
There are pros and cons to the BK. The 2 things i don’t like about them is they bottom out at about 15 down to 8 hz. Easily fixed woth a negative PEQ. The other is they can make some noise, like if there is a silent part of a movie, but with some LFE sounds. Then you can hear them work.
But the sheer brutality of them and the visceral feeling they can give is unparalleled ! Like the opening of The Meg and the submarine resque, they are insane. And my current BOSS can’t touch that feeling.
So yeah, i love the BK’s and made them work extremly well in my setup and in combo with the MA’s, so it can be done
And the MA’s are of course unrivaled in the single digits. There is a difference between being shaken and being lifted.
But like i said, i am impressed by the BOSS, i NEVER thought some speaker cones could move the couch as good as they do, but i simply think it is a unfair comparison

I like the BOSS a lot, but I’m feeling less of an addition in TR below 15-20Hz than would be expected when combined with my pair of MA’s (Crowsons should excel here for the price). You’ve got 6 MA’s and 4 BK’s to give you a ridiculous amount of TR across their bandwidth, so I can’t imagine how difficult that is to try and improve upon. But 20-35Hz where I run the JBL’s hard, and where some of the choicest bass resides, these little 12” drivers really shine for me.
I think the few people in your situation would need a ton of drivers, maybe 8-12 or more, to make up for the lost energy. I know
has 8 and I think
has 6 or more now
How many people are running more than 3 drivers in their BOSS?
I’m curious what an additional 3 drivers would provide in my setup, but I honestly don’t need any more TR at this point.
Exactly and i agree, between 20(maybe down to ~15) and 30hz the BOSS is more in the optimal work area for the BOSS(at least so far in my setup).
I guess most have 3 drivers across multiple seat couches, and that could work just fine, but another way of looking at it is how many drivers pr
seat. And as such, even though i have only 4 drivers, it is also just a 2 seat couch, so 2 drivers pr
