In reply to:

Music rarely, if ever, has those kind of low frequencies.




True. My favourite for testing is music with Victor Wooten playing his tenor bass (low A at about 27.5 Hz - Flight of the Cosmic Hippo, for example). I don't listen to much pipe organ, well ok, I don't listen to any pipe organ music so as long as a sub is musical down to 25 Hz, that is good enough for me musically.

I agree that typically only in movies will you experience anything lower.

Add another foot onto the width and length. Not that it makes much difference.

Flight of the Cosmic Hippo was one of the first things I played once I got it calibrated. It was quite nice.

Ooh, I gotta hear that. I've got the Telarc Digital Tocata and Fugue, if you want to try that one. And an 1812 Overture...

Bring em both, Ken. I don't know if we'll be able to test the subs limits tonight, but we should at least try.

I recently picked up the Telarc recording of the 1812 Overture--those cannons are frightening!

And he went and did a real nice job, too! It's a very nice system. I was surprised at how well the M3s carried themselves in comparison to the 22s, 50s, 60s, and 80s I've heard. Very nice speakers; they don't give up anything to the 22s. Also, the PB10 is downright amazing--all those cliches they use for subs apply. It was a bit bigger than I expected, though... Adam was very nice in putting up with a couple tracks from my Rush disk, which sounded quite good once we got it switched to 4.1. And the beer was excellent!
