Okay, to you and Cardo....
When you say "sound amazing", what exactly are you describing? Low frequency sounds -- anything below, what?, 30 Hz? -- can't really be "heard" anyways. More felt
, right? So, how does the quality of the sound improve as you add more subs?
I understand about long wavelengths of low-frequency sound, and how a second or even third sub can help smooth out the frequency response and eliminate nulls, and how you want a sub to "pressurize the room", but some of these guys have 6, 8, or even more in a relatively small room. How much is really
too much? I mean, once you add a second or third and eliminate the nulls and do your pressurization thing, aren't you just "bouncing the rubble"?
Seriously, I'm a one-sub-per-room guy, even in my dedicated theater. I'd really like to know. And if I were to ask this question in one of those sub forums, they'd just heap ridicule on me and throw a bunch of techno-jargon in my face. Then a couple of them would get into a shouting match about some obscure technical point which would end with death threats and my question would be long forgotten. Been there, done that.
