    Re: REL S5 SHO under way, exciting...

    Mike, may I ask for a little help: where does your sub cross over with the RELs and M3s?

    I've been experimenting and right now, I'm at 24hz, +7. I'm listening for excessive "chestiness" in vocals and some acoustic guitar which can almost sound like someone is talking into a wall or playing too close to a wall. But I don't want a suck out or a dryness in the vocals either. It's a delicate balance. I will also add, that sub placement has a lot to do with it. I've been experimenting and I do not like the subs near the front wall at all. I want them closer to the main speakers. Right now, for timing and sonics, they are just outside the mains and set back a little (a few inches).

    Thanks Mike for sharing your insights, greatly appreciated.

    Outstanding demo setup, phantastic!

    Mike, over the years I have found with the Torus from one side of the speaker to the other makes a huge difference. Everything is very room dependent. Your mention about the subs being closer to the front wall is a very good one as I too have found that if I put the subs anywhere within 3 ft of a front wall that hasn't been treated, I have to adjust them right down to the low 20's which does affect the mid range. This too detracts that last 5%. You'd be hard pressed to find better music than Tracey Chapman to set the room up, she is one of my go to's.
