Dale-

funny thing, i'm the post who asked you about your behringer with 1.4 software, never heard back except you're checking. Reason it's funny is it for my two rythmik F12's.

Thanks Michael

Has there been any reviews of the FV12? I am looking for a MUSICAL sub that would be at home in a Condo with 5 KEF LS-50 speakers. I am concerned over too much bottom disturbing the adjoining condo units so I would prefer the LF not to go down as low as the FV15.

The FV12 is long gone, since replaced by the LV12R.

Sorry - I meant the F12 family of sealed subwoofers with my most interest in the F12SE fow wife approval. I am not even sure where I came up with the FV12 designation.

The above graphs are open plane testing; ideal conditions. What I want to know, how well will a pair of them perform in a room our size?

...:confused:

...11Hz.

...:p

(i love our FV15HPs)

...:bigsmile:

If one buy's a pair of FV15HPs and gets them "properly" dialed in (based on REW measurements) you won't have regrets.

(dial in a pair of FV15HPs......and you'll understand what the word "spoiled" means)

*To Chucka:
Use a high pass? IF you're worried about too much extension there's your answer... From experience you want a subwoofer capable of playing much louder/lower than you need such that listening at normal -> loud volume is just as effortless, i.e. low distortion. People that complain about too much bottom end usually could use more bass traps/eq, it may not apply to you but I'd look down that road if you haven't already.

Complaining about too much bottom end?

...:confused:

I've read of folks complaining about not enough bottom end, but never of there being too much bottom end. What am I not understanding?

...:confused:

Have these folks who are complaining, used room measuring software to measure and graph the acoustics of their room? Are these same said people using "quality" room correction software to correct for the acoustics in their room?

Are these same folks trying to make magic with a single subwoofer based subwoofer system?

Perhaps what he was trying to say is the bass is too boomy? That's just a guess but I agree, I want more bottom end as do most people. However if it's port chuffing then I could see someone wanting to back off a bit. That could lead someone to say too much bottom end I suppose.
