A sealed design is relatively easy to eq - multiple drivers are typically needed, but it's a fairly straight forward process to do so.
Great news. Thanks.
I can get low extension and pleasing tactile response, but I have to inflate the sub level to a point where they are unbalanced with the mains at low but audible frequencies. I know the performance is there, I just have to unlock it.
Sorry Nick, I never played with mixing porteds and sealed units. Sold my last ported before the sealeds arrived. Our rooms are dang near the same size so I can tell you you'll want something with grunt if you go sealed. Mine are great, but I'm getting greedy for every last drop of performance.
I'd look at ep500 or sb-2000 as options. I wish I had waited 6 months. The sb-2000s seem to be tuned lower than the sb12 NSD units. Such is life.
For what I paid I can't complain. They rocked my last room, but the new room has much greater volume.
I thought you had buttkickers?
