I would just save up until you can afford.
Some companies may offer $20-$30 off their "refurbished" speakers but that's once in a blue moon.

Thanks for the heads up on their lack of sales, it was mainly a matter of their website showing the option for coupon codes, so I assumed at some point they have them. Is that not correct?



And it isn't really a matter of not being able to afford them. That isn't the problem. I set a budget, along with talking with my wife, and Elac debuts and a few others were in that budget range. On further research, and the rave reviews on these, I figured maybe I could push my budget a bit if they were discounted from time to time, without having to renegotiate with my wife. =)

I'm glad I don't have to negotiate with my wife. I spend my money the way I like and she spends my money the way she likes. Comes out all even.

It's not a "she gets, then I get" thing. We just set budgets and follow them. We like to be fiscally responsible.



So in summary, are the codes just not a thing any more there? An older aspect of the check out process? Just want to be clear on how they operate.

Not sure about all this code stuff, but they do have some type of deal under bundles on the site. Great deal if you are looking at Chane's. Get 3 A2.4s for $729 call it the day. Best value in speakers right now imo at those prices

The Chane speakers punch well above their size, but they are still 5.25" drivers and simply can't match what a 15" subwoofer can do. I have Chane A2.4 and a pair of PSA V1500 with a 80hz crossover in a 5000 cu/ft room and have plenty of chest slam, especially with one of the subs directly behind the MLP.


Yeah, the LFM outlaw sub is great, but undersized for that room. I too think the PSA V1500 (preferably a pair) would be a better option for a down firing sub. Lots more great options if down firing isn't a priority.

Though the Chane XBL2 midwoofer essentially behaves as a std 6.5" woofer in terms of volume displacement, triple 6.5" drivers pale in vD compared to even a single 15".

Also, if there is a region where the subwoofer output is overlapped with the mains (and there always is) phase immediately becomes an issue. If Audyssey didn't calculate correctly, this could permit phase cancellation between the mains and subs.

So, trying just the mains, running full range with no sub, for a few songs could help to answer that question as well.

Other excellent advice about room dimensions and crossover points should be observed as well.

If it matters, this setup is a 3-year setup, as we are going to be adding on to this room making sound even more impossible.


Those are great subs but they wouldn't really be enough. You'd need more likely four of them than a pair.

The codes are a thing, just not something that is always available. After I received my trio of A2.4s I submitted a review after a few weeks. Later, I received a discount code I could use towards a future purchase. When I ordered my A2.4s, they were in scarce supply and there weren't any bundle discounts. Although there are bundles now, I don't regret for a second ordering when I did. They are well worth the regular price.

Glad to hear ya'll are safe. I'm still waiting to be put on a list to assist but we have a new director so we'll see what he does.
What little I'm seeing in the news it seems like the areas that got hit were just obliterated. Hopes and prayers for all those folks.

Can someone tell me what height the center of the tweeter sits at on the A1.4? Trying to determine what height I need from stands, for an ear level around 39"-43". Im thinking around 30", but I just want to be sure


And does anyone have some favorite stands for these? Possibly adjustable? I may just end up with Sanus at 30" that cant be adjusted, but Im open to other ideas.

I think I sorted out my issue. The short version is I basically re-ran Audyssey, set the fronts to small and didn't mess with the crossover too much afterwards. Somehow my Outlaw sub was set to active and shared a similar crossover setting to what Audyssey configured, I wonder if that was causing issues as well.

At any rate - the system sound much better after all of this outside of the sub having a hard time filling the room.

The new Outlaw x-13 is on a special sale and can be had for $1000. I don't know how that would compare to the PSA v1510DF though. I"m thinking, even though that 13" from Outlaw is a special driver, that I'd rather have 1 (or 2) 15" drivers to pressurize my room better.

So I'm a little confused about what Audyssey is doing with my 2.4 as a center channel now that I have everything installed vs. when I ran it for a week (about 40 hours) as a center channel before. I have it in a custom built entertainment unit. The 2.4 in the center is about 22" off the ground, in an 8x30 opening (about 18" deep) and is angled up using a couple 3/16's wood shims placed about 1/3'rd back from the front. The front (actual not including the grill) is about 1/2-3/4" protruding from the entire unit. When I run Audyssey it's boosting the mid bass and the highs noticeably compared to my demo time. The only difference is the demo I had it sitting in front of where the entertainment unit on top of a cinder block with a foam pad on top and again with the same kind of shims to angle it up. Similar height/etc.

The two I'm using as L/R mains sitting vertically on top of the unit which sits in a cubby hole are giving similar correction graphs to what I originally got from the center during the demo time. I'm really kind of confused since I'd especially have thought that if the unit was contributing any sound to it that it would be boosting bass/etc but because Audyssey seems to be boosting those frequencies instead of cutting them I guess that can't be the case. Apparently I designed the opening tighter than I should have as well so I can't use one of the foam isolation wedge things to see if that will help. Anyone have any advice? I'm attaching a pre_install image of the correction graph from the demo setup vs. the installed graph. Oh, both are run with port plugs in.

I don't have the exact height of the tweeter on the A1.4 (I only have A2.4s), but you should look at the Monoprice Monolith stands. They support much heavier speakers than most stands and the Chanes are definitely on the heavier side.

Hi guys, I recently got a pair of A2.4s. Great speakers. I wanted to get a sub to pair them with. Budget $600, max 700 if really necessary. Which sub would you recommend? I've read great things about SVS SB-1000. The SVS subwoofer matching tool tells me PB-2000 or SB-2000 is good for these speakers.

My use: 95% music/5% movie in a 16' x 13' room that is crowded with furniture (unfortunately). The A2.4s will be 1ft away from the wall and my listening position is approx 9-10 ft. I'm not about chest-thumping bass, but I discovered recently that I do like a bit of "extra" punch on the low end.

You can typically get a little more bang for the buck with some of the other sub companies. HSU has some great value priced subwoofers that perform above their price point. You should also look for some outlet deals as they typically come with the full warranty.

I have a HSU VTF-2 MK5 in my living room that is about your room size but also opens into an equally big kitchen/breakfast area. Other speakers are 2xA1.4 and a A2.4 center. cross over set to 80Hz. The HSU is set to 1/4 volume, ports open and it can rock the house. Bass is very "precise", no hint of distortion at these levels...Very happy with the purchase so far.

Don't know how it will perform in my media room is that 13x13 enclosed...

Thanks! A little bit of searching seems to indicate Rythmik and HSU both have options that are better !/$ than SVS. Its between Rythmik L12 and HSU VTF-2MK5 as they fit within the mentioned budget. I'm reluctant to try both and return one because of time and $ constraints. I might convince myself to do it anyway. In the meantime, would you all recommend one over the other or are they basically comparable?

I don't have any personal experience with either sub, but both are well regarded in the forums at that price point. The Rhythmic subs are a little different in that they use Servo drivers. You can read about the benefits on their website, but I would imagine that it would have an advantage in a primarily music setup.

I really don't think there is a bad choice with any of the big internet direct companies (HSU, PSA, Rhythmic, JTR, Seaton, etc). It really comes down to personal preferences. In my case, I am in a rather large space which warrants larger subwoofers to achieve the desired result.

In theory, the Rythmik would have lower distortion and be better for music, but I'm sure the HSU has greater output. It's definitely a YMMV. I have more expensive Rythmiks, and like them very much, and find them with slightly better SQ than the much cheaper SVS I had that are similar to the SB1000. I've never heard HSU.
If you live in the Orange County, CA area, you can pick up/return HSU without paying shipping, and the same with Rythmik if you live near Austin, TX.
