Re: Sub for music

Hi supplied graph, different levels were used

Each sub level was set in the 30s out of 100.

Agreed. Not sure we'll ever get to the bottom though - that graph is showing a spike at 9Hz which is just not physically possible given the driver configuration, even if you factor in the low output numbers.

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

Re: Sub for music

Also the graph above 10kHz is way to harsh, his ears will be bleeding with highs that sharp.

Re: Sub for music

It is legit he did it at different times and days with the same result, spike at 9hz

Mains included

All measuring tools are calibrated that were used.

The treble region looks better now.

I would not concern yourself with the term "musical sub" as if the sub is built well it will do very good at music as well as movies. I do agree that a sub for music only will not need to dig as deep but that said there is no better design that a sub that can.
SVS subs are well known to deliver smooth even bass across the frequency range. I would not worry about the debate over down firing vs front firing as again if built right it matters not. Bass is non directional and you don't nessisaraly want the floor to transmit the bass.

Agreed on both of your points. I only like the down firing design because of aesthetics, not because of perceived sound quality differences. Thanks
A little late to the (I don't like REL) party, but I would just like to mention I chose a down-firing PSA XV15 for the express purpose of enhancing floor-borne vibration. Why? I'm on a concrete slab, which eats bass for breakfast and then some! Does it perform better than a side-firing model in that regard? I'm uncertain.

I try to be as good as my dog thinks I am

Re: Sub for music

It looks sketchy to me from 80 on down, but despite my best efforts, I can't explain even though I know it's not possible. Jim, or Tony, any idea what could be going here? Just looking for insight on what to do with unexpected results, when I measure at home, or especially another's system.
