    Re: 2 subs for 2-ch only system in a small room?

    I've heard some very good reports about the Audio Kinesis Swarm Subwoofer system.
    For small(ish) rooms, multiple subs are ideal for taming room modes.

    Might be worth a look if it's really something that is bothering you.

The back wall is about 3' high, above which it opens up to the rest of my house. I have bass traps in this room. Right now, using just 1 sub and spending a lot of time positioning my speakers, my freq response from 20-1000hz is +- 2db with a -4db dip at 200hz and a +4db hump at 40hz. Not perfect but my system still sounds amazing.


    I know the general consensus is a second sub will sound better but I am concerned with the size of my room. Will adding a second sub in such a small space over power it or will it actually help to smooth out nodes? Also can someone describe what benefits I would get with 2 subs versus 1?

    Maybe read the following piece. It is one I have found to address the sub issue very thoroughly....from room nodes to time domain.
