Glad you got your set up working for you, it indeed can be challenging and takes more than just buying something and throwing it in the corner.IMO It is definitely worth it when you get your system tuned in!

Nice conversation

absolutely agreed. I can't ever proclaim to be an audiophile. I'm an enthusiast. I don't even own an SPL meter but I suspect I'll dabble with learning to use one soon. I use only my eyes and ears to judge. It's funny, I came home today from work after partaking in this thread thinking that I needed to retune my subs. I'd been playing around with different sources in both pure bypassed 2-ch. analog modes, digitized 2-ch. stereo, and 5-ch stereo (which can make 12" subs sound like 18's in my setup - way overkill.) Also been toying with my very small SACD and DVD-A sources in their respective analog formats. It's always an ongoing tweak for me but I try to set the subs individual adjustments "just so" and keep my tweaking to the channel +/- dB on my Outlaw receiver, to avoid creating a bass "disaster" - the potential increases with two subs, each with their own calibrations/setups. one sub was definitely easier

OP - someone mentioned in the Outlaw site to check out AV123's site for their new subs. They're getting some well-deserved attention apparently. If I were in the market for subs, or any speakers for that matter, AV123 has some juicy (looking and performing) equipment worth a look if you're willing to deal with the direct marketing.

A lot of good information in here, enough to make someones head spin

I read both of those articles and a lot of it makes sense but also sounds very complicated. It makes me want to stick with one good subwoofer as I do not even know how my room setup is going to be or if I will have a dedicated HTR or a living room or how big or the shape ect ect ..

Unfortunately I will not be able to choose the house I move into based solely on my HT endeavors. Although if I could believe me I would

I have looked into AV123 before and walked away feeling kinda weird some of thier speakers look way cool but I never really looked into thier subwoofers although I will now.. That MFW-15 Subwoofer is a beat for only $599
