I have all the confidence the BMR's would give me the sound quality i want no doubt. And yes i have great sounding subs that i have re-tuned setting the lowpass in the LFE channel to 150Hz then rerunning audyssey. Post audyssey setting mains at 110Hz X-Over. The Funks really help with contribution above the default 80Hz X-over many of us use on mains and help make the front mains sound larger, also i'm not sensing any unwanted localization (male vocals etc)
Coming soon!! New pair of "Funk LFE Ported" with up to 12DB's more output at port tune (12.5Hz) and more output all the way up to about 50Hz vs my present subs (could be pushing between 125/130DB's of bass at the mlp),,,,ported subs having 20K+, peak outputs is why i posted this thread. The Chanes still blow me away how they hold their composure playing music at 0mv, as well as the entire soundstage opens up and envelops me. This is what i hope to get more of as well as hear in lower volumes. Basically hoping to get at -6mv levels,,,,, what the chanes are giving me now at 0mv. That way i would have lots of headroom to keep up.
I think for "movies" since only a couple times i've had mv at -6,,,(usually -8/-10mv) i still have lots headroom there staying with chanes. Possibly the difference is, after a few wabblies i love to dial up the tunes lol and unlike the uncompressed audio on movies and some of my BR concerts, most music listening is sourced through my GooglePlay which has now merged with U-Tube music (havent moved over yet so not sure on sound quality)? The Marantz DAC seem to bring the compressed music source to life and many songs have an uncompressed sound quality to my questionable untrained old ears.
As for towers mybe i should see how the new subs look in place and see if thats an option. Subs are 55"TX26"DX20"W.
