, you rock sir.
So I ran this scene with my setup to see how it compares...well, it didn't.
I then ran in +10db hotter (+14db total), and it was closer...but still not there.
I then moved my MBM 1200D (tuned at 50-60hz or so) right up against the couch...nope.
After seeing this graph, it makes sense now. Check out the avg curve, and the area I circled. There is a spike in the avg curve between 30 and 45hz. This is outside of the passband of the MBM, and thus why moving it as close as possible didn't really add that much.
My 2 FV15HPs are nearfield, but not firing directly at the MLP. They are probably 3ft away.
The experience during Carps demo really demonstrates to me how important PR
(pressure response) is to the overall experience. Remember, PR
is the waves directly
impacting your body and is not the shaking of the couch (TR).
While I might be able to recreate the TR, it's the PR
that is most impressive. The only way I could recreate that is to have one of my FV's directly behind me.
Crowsons and other transducers can create TR...but will never create PR
. I'm convinced PR
is really the true benefit of a nearfield sub...TR just happens to come with it.
More to come on this topic as I have VS graphs of Carp's crowsons without the nearfield sub, and vice versa.
