You need a lot of output to get to the point of feeling it in the chest. How big is your space? Is it closed or open floor plan?

The kk is powerful. I get clean tight bass and of course the pressure in the ear. From time to time I feel the tactile but I'm looking for chest slam.
Have you tried moving the Kreisel close to your seat? That may help with the tactile feeling you're looking for. The ported version of the SVS subs would also be better for that feeling.

My space is around 5000 to 5200 cf and it's open to hallway, another living area and rooms. An open plan indeed.

I've done REW and the front wall or corner is best. Next to me back wall the sub losses the spl a little more past 20hz.

Wow. I think you need more sub. The KK is a very nuanced sub, correct? Are you primarily movies or music?

Have you had any luck locating used Kreisel subs or are they just more than you want to spend?

I'll keep my eyes open for a potential buy if the price is good.

Re: SVS Unleashes Black Friday Madness with an SB12-NSD Subwoofer Blowout

I might be inclined to sell the KK and look to address the space with dual ported subs. That's a big space that's perfect for a port design. This is going to sound like a sales pitch, but both SVS and PSA sell dual options that would price in the $2,000-$3,000 range. Secondarily, HSU would get you there for slightly less.

Let's say you were able to sell your KK for 50% of its MSRP (here on HTS or through a site like Audiogon), you'd have $1500 in your pocket, which would go a long way toward implementing a dual subs. Honestly, I'm not sure how much of a difference in fidelity you'd notice. The sealed KK might give a little more of a controlled response for critical stereo listening...but I don't think you'll hear much of a detail loss when watching movies. In fact, I think your overall experience will radically improve.

When you run REW measurements from your MLP... where is the null?

The benefit of two, would not only be more headroom, but you can take measurements and strategically place sub number two in a place that smooths out the response.
