Mark. That should not make any difference other than not having enough bass overall.

it sounds okay and well most of the time, it's just when it gets into the deep bass in movies, it makes that clack sound.like it can't handle it. not even my supercube does that and it's 8 inches, for a while i just let it go, and would turn down the bass, but i was watching "my name is khan" and it was just super annoying. I was like dude something is wrong!

No, it shouldn't.
But sometimes you run across a person who thinks M2s will fill a 30X40 foot room or an EP500 will fill the room at 120dB...i.e., even though he said he wasn't pushing it hard, I was curious what the definition of "not hard" was.

Damn. I stepped in it again.

na i completely understood why you asked. my room is not small but it's not Huge either. which is why i kept the SCII. i'll eventually get another EP500 (if it pans out) or an SVS Ultra.

its at the 10 oclock position roughly and like i said before I calibrated them carefully each to 73dbs with the reciver LFE level at "0" one at a time. then ran MULTY EQ.

in the recievers' LFE channel level after running AmultiEQ it rests at -7.I then rechecke levels with an SPL meter. and they measured together at 70'ish. im geussing max durring a movie about 100db or so, doubt much higher than that. no more than say 115 on a reaaaaallly loud part.

so yea im not running it HOT or trying to get the most out of it. just want it right, but when a movie gets bassy it clacks

Naw, you've just got a defective or damaged driver. You'll be fine.

Mark, I'll leave the definition of "not hard" to others(Peter?), but I'll again point out that rooms don't have to be "filled" with sound at the level needed at the listening position. That term should be deep-sixed.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.
