  1. I'm definitely not saying it's a bad subwoofer,they've really maximized what they can do in such a small sealed box --- but on Kef's website they claim a -3dB down point of 11Hz on both the KF92 (dual 9") and KC62 (dual 6.5"). A -3dB point of a subwoofer is usually (or should be ) an anechoic or 2m groundplane measurement, as room gain and boundary gain can add significantly to the bottom octaves - and as all rooms vary greatly - it makes in-room rating a bit useless/pointless (unless you're in the exact room it was taken in) yet when Newport Test Labs measured the larger KF
  2. The cabinets are lovely, but I'm drooling over the drivers used in these!
  3. This is Mark's new amp for the international market, the lower power (compared to the previous 6kw master/slave model) means it doesn't need the ground pin which helps lower the lower the chance of ground loops/hum. I have 3 of these new amps and IMHO they are a big improvement on the older 1kw amps. They have low frequency adjust, auto on, delay, 12v trigger etc
  4. These products (Jensen) are awesome! I had some sub hum in my previous config and the Sub-2RR helped eliminate it
  5. Yeah I'd rather have 2xSB-1000's than 1x SB-2000 There was one on Gumtree Brisbane for sale yesterday too!
  6. I think the 2*** series Denon's only have Audyssey XT - not XT32 (which I agree IS a necessity if looking at Denon/Marantz)
  7. Audyssey aims for a FLAT frequency response - to most people, not listening at THX Reference Level - a flat FR in the bass region will sound anemic. I would turn the subs up 3-6dB (or more) in the Channel Level section of the AVR. Are you using Dynamic EQ ? - it may also help Make sure Dynamic Volume and Audyssey LFC are both OFF
  8. Agreed with others, needing to add +16dB means something is likely up (IMHO anyway) Most auto room correction systems aim to set the subs and speakers to 75dB (ie. flat ) - unfortunately most of us listen well below THX reference level, at lower volumes our ears are much less sensitive to bass frequencies, so "flat" can sound a bit anaemic. Audyssey has "Dynamic EQ " to help solve this. If you don't have something like that, most people seem to prefer adding around 3-6dB to their subs. Adding 15dB+ is not unheard of, but it's at the extreme end - even for bassheads
  9. Wow!!!!! This would be a killer LCR setup for most people, clean and tidy - with huge output potential Agree 100% on James Loudspeakers too, I had some of their 6" bookshelf speakers and both the sound and build quality was off the charts.
