    One sub or two.

    Back on topic. So whether two subs are better than one, is best determined by listening. Throw away those fancy gadgets and measuring equipment....they're all but useless...and trust to your ears.

    Well, it's evident to me that you appear not to know very much and accusations of trolling is the last refuge of the ignorant.

    Just a series of fairly meaningless assertions.

    What a lot of tosh. Totally needless complexity. Trust your ears, or get a musical friend to do that for you.

    @davewantsmoore So if I'm not mistaken, what you are saying is that the human ear is not to be trusted when it comes to home audio. Apparently, we all need to invest in expensive equipment, which will tell us when our ears are experiencing audio nirvana.....Ha, Ha, Ha! I would have thought that it is the human ear....above all other considerations...which will tell us when the measuring equipment has finally got it right. When it comes to music (or the appreciation of sound reproduction), give me the human ear every time. I for one won't be purchasing any of this fancy equipment and I'll bet my britches that I'll still hit on the right spot (after some experimentation) for positioning of subs or any speaker for that matter.
  6. @RickSL There is one available now : But it should really be partnered with the outboard PSU....not sure if the seller has one of these for sale as well.
  7. The ones I use are no longer made, but are available from time to time on SNA. Musical Fidelity X-10 V3 Valve Buffer, pictured below partnered with an XCAN PSU for best results. Cheers.

    Thanks @Snoopy8 , but it might be worthwhile investigating the DSP option. Cheers.

    Thanks again. Is this the place you mentioned? http://www.deephzaudio.com/

    Thank you @powerav , now I understand. It's quite expensive though at € 281.45, or € 322.00 for the enhanced version.

    @Snoopy8 @Gridmon Thanks for your posts, but I'm afraid I don't know what a DSP is. In my system I use one sub, positioned on the side wall (pointing directly across the room) about half way between my mains and the optimal listening position. This is probably audio heresy, but after experimenting I have found positioning the sub on the side wall to give the best (tightest/most musical) results.

    I see. I've only ever used one sub, so this is news to me. Maybe with 2 channel stereo, one sub would be enough, but with HT two might be an advantage? Not sure.

    GaN Class-D Technology starting to roll on.

    Thanks, I'll have to have a squiz.

    I was always under the impression that a subwoofer's sound wasn't directional, therefore 2 subs wouldn't really be of much benefit?

    GaN Class-D Technology starting to roll on.

    It's the general consensus around my audio mates (not members here) that Class D is crap. Maybe things have moved on in the last little while. The only Class D amps I've heard (many years ago now) sounded really subpar. Is there a Class D brand/amp that's worth listening to?
