I have also used EQ since day 1, which is considered mandatory for sub bass... but really I thought we were talking about locating it by ear, and that was what my story was about. 

 

Yep that's what s being discussed.    Like having 5 subwoofers in circle around you..... and not being able to sense which one was playing.

Just a quick announcement that twins were painlessly born today, to a badly-presented but relieved BioBrian and his wonderful StereoNetter cohorts. I'd really like to gratuitously thank all staff, but

It's an odd experience when I find someone referring to something I wrote that I can't remember.   When you compare different kinds of subs, there are two experiences. The first is the easy

Spurred on by hearing @deblur's lovely sealed 15" AE subs yesterday, it's good to get another step closer to finishing these (here comes another one) big birthers.   The baffle flares worked

I think what many people seem to miss, is that the point of bringing that up isn't "to be right"..... it is because finding and figuring out what that "something else" is..... is often pivotal in building a better playback system

Yes definintely interested in the above, (or, a nobel prize)

Rooms can make it very complex.

 

Perhaps something happening outside your time window.... although you probably don't have enough SNR to see (to make it longer)

      Hey guys,
       
      I have a newbie question:
       
      I have just purchased a Kef KC62 subwoofer.
      My amp is a NAD C368, where you can set a low pass filter at 150hz (fixed, I can't set any other value)
      The crossover dial on the subwoofer goes from 40-140hz.
       
      Where should I set it to get the best result? Shouldn't the crossover on the sub be set where the crossover on the amp is set as well?
       
       
      Thanks A LOT in advance!

      Item Condition: very good Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Marrickville State: NSW Payment Method: PayID or cash Reason for selling: wanting to try something else Further information:
      The Sunfire HRS-12 is a legit 1000Wrms 12inch subwoofer designed by Bob Carver which is still $2649 rrp (apollohifi). Heaps of output for its size which Audioholics rated it 'large room'. I have used it in a loft apartment and a small lounge room with great results. Paired with Jamo c803, Elac 243.3 and currently KEF Q900s. I still have the double boxes, but no shipping I'm sorry, pick up only.
      I have also owned the HRS-8 and the extra cone area of the 12 took it another level. I was looking for a second one to go dual for a while but another one never came up at the same time I had the money. This time I want to try another brand to see what it's like, everything else has changed in my system already not it's the subs turn.
      I would like to note that on very close up inspection you can see some swirl marks in the super glossy finish and there is a slight thump when going in and out of standby (I also experienced this on the HRS-8 so I assume that just how the amp works). I have never had any issues and never really been able to push it to the limits as I want to friends with my neighbours (shared wall).
