John, did you see that Velodyne is bringing out a $500 add on package of 5 microphones so you can optimize the sub response over the entire room rather than just one spot?

"Velodyne is coming out with this MIC-5 unit that will let you EQ the subwoofer using the SMS-1 and five different room locations. About $500"

John,

Been awhile!!

After reviewing this thread several times, I can only conclude that you are one extremely twisted bass-head!

I say this completely confident in the knowledge that you absolutely cannot hear what I am saying. Or anything anybody else says to you either!

No I hadn't seen that Jack. Thanks for pointing it out. I can see how useful that package can be because one of my objectives was to smooth FR across all the seats, a tough challenge with only one mic. Looks like I'll order it up.

Thanks Tom. It took a while but the bass is so refined and detailed I hear the slightest LF sound now and its not that the volume is any higher. Just much less distortion of all types, no power compression and smooth as silk.

I have the distinct feeling, that with your system, you could even hear the sound of a tree falling in the woods even though nobody was there to record it.

Dakkon I heartily recommend you add a 500. Those 2 subs work so well together is unbelievable. Your immediate experience without any tweaking will be a more detailed effortless bass response across more of your room and that's saying alot given that terrific 600!

My other speakers are Totems which I bought from a friend who ran into some serious financial problems last year. The mains are Totem Shamans. The woofer cabinets are completely separate and provide clean extension to 15hz+/-3db and output to 11hz. That's why I don't cross my subs and mains only my surrounds. I don't need bass extension on the main channels. The added benefit according to some people is less IM distortion but Tom Cumberland tells me that as long as the bass is redirected digitally its not an issue when crossing the mains.
