Hi Guys,


I am working on building a new home theater in a living room/kitchen area. Room size is 13x12 to the back of the couch or 13x36 including the kitchen

9 foot ceilings


I bought a nice set of KEF iq9/iq10/iq6c speakers used and now I am trying to find a nice subwoofer or two to go with it.


I can get very good discounts on velodyne through a neighbor so something from them would be good.


Impact 10 ~ 200

Impact 12 ~ 233


then the DLS-3750R ~300

and i can't remember what the 400R cost


Do you guys think one or two subwoofers would be better? What sizes? Anything help at all would be good really. Thanks a lot!


Edit: Budget: as cheap as possible I guess

Your subs have no idea where your couch resides, so the subs need to fill the *entire* space, 13X36. That's a large room and I suggest you buy at least two of the largest subs you can afford and if you care about how good they sound I would budget in some measuring equipment, such as Omnimic http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=390-790 , to optimize their postions in the room.

Velodyne has a Room Sizing Chart for each series. A single DLS-5000R will just about fill your space. Duals would be better. Sound&Vision really liked the sound quality (and quantity) of the 5000.

wow that mic would be awesome to have. does it help determine if you have sound dampening panels in the right places and things like that also?

I found out I can actually get either the DEQ-12R or the DEQ-15R. if it turns out I can only afford to get either 2x 12" or 1x15" what would be better?

2 x 12 would be better.

That makes sense. Thanks for all the help guys!

Plus the DEQ-15 doesn't really go much deeper than the 12 AKAIK and according to Velodyne's specs.
