Re: Sub for music

Musical sub? That has been a life-long dream of mine for as long as I can remember. Honestly, have owned many subs from the likes of Hsu, SVS, Outlaw, Paradigm, Mirage, Velodyne, Acoustic Research, and etc. just to name a few. Of these mentioned, the Hsu VTF3.3 was the MOST musical sub of the bunch. However, that was until I purchased a B-stock PSA S1500. That being said, I highly recommend that the OP take a MUCH closer look at the S1500. The deal Tom V. gave me on it along with an anti-mode 8033 S II was incredible to say the least. Furthermore, Tom V. answered ALL of my questions and is a straight shooter. Right now, I have plans to order another S1500 OR maybe even (2) of them. Yes, the S1500 is that good! Especially, for musical applications. Listening to Pink Floyd's The Wall as we speak. Sounds AMAZING!

Cheers,

Phil

Yep down to 9hz they were measured at 80db.
This was with careful placement and calibrated
You have some serious room gain going on or your doing the readings wrong, not a chance the REL will dig that deep. Even their top of the line G1 is down -6dB at 15Hz

I think the better question to ask is "when 9hz is at 80db, what level is the rest of the system?"

I would say my sub is only good down to 22hz but it can also play 9hz at 80db but the other bass is much louder. The magic of sealed subs.

Re: Sub for music

The person that took the measurements used good measuring gear including calibration.

Took a lot of setting up until they both locked into the room, this is the key using the high level connection.

They are at 80db with the rest of the system at 75db.

These are fantastic musical subs set up properly, they are setup different from others so some people might get it wrong, I am more than happy with these.

Re: Sub for music

You cant defy physics, a 12" driver simply cant produce 9Hz Even my PB13U wont go that deep at any usable level and its twice the size of the G1 and ported.

That's why I expressed surprise as well. I honestly don't see the REL doing it unless Mr. Einstein changed something with physics.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

Or a pair of them were fashioned into headphones?

Re: Sub for music

These were measured with different measuring tools also different days with the same result.

With the two of them placed in both front corners with a low crossover.

I am not arguing I thought the same, but I will take it.
