Right on, Mike. There's the forum mission in a nutshell. We aren't sure about science, we don't care about inconsequential matters, we like stuff and we take care of each other.

Clink!

I know nothing.

It was just, you know, that noise you make when you touch glasses after saying cheers or skol or salut or whatever.

But when you cheers with a Timmie's it's more of a clunk than a clink.

Nick - I would go with the 2nd option as well for two really good subs instead of one uber sub. Not that I have any experience with multiple subs personally (yet) but that seems the most logical option to me if you don't need to chase down those final very very low Hz.

Nick, yes that should work out well. Each pair of subs that are diagonally opposite should be as similar as possible. The diagonally opposite corner arrangement depends entirely on cancellation effects to minimize room modes. When the wave from one sub reaches the opposite one the sound at the mode frequency will be reversed in polarity and will partially cancel that mode frequency. A similar response of the subs at that frequency leads to a better cancellation when they meet their partner.

Maybe this is the route that I will go. I'll try another Outlaw sub and see how happy I am with the bass for a while. If I want a little more then I'll also add a pair of midrage ($1000 each or so) subs and arrange the Outlaw subs in diagonally opposite corners and the other brand in diagonally opposite corners.

Adrian, I'll buy?


Sharon says you can come visit, but only if you bring Buddy.
No ice or snow here yet so make sure your iceboat is well caulked.

Is it about me at all? Or really, is it all about Buddy?

Buddy is the only reason BobK visits as well.
