    Re: Mis-matched subs

    Ok, so I hooked up the Klipsch. I stuffed the port because without this it was way too over powering. I played around with crossovers, level adjustments, phasing, etc. I tried adjustments on both, but mainly on the Klipsch. To be real honest, I did not like the sound with the Klipsch so much. Yes, it could add a lot of bass, but it almost seemed too boomy unless it was set to barely being on. It also seemed to muddy the bottom end a lot. The REL, although not adding a ton of knock your socks off bass is very tight and smooth. The bottom end it adds is very smooth and enjoyable, adding just a little more feel on the kick drum or feel to the acoustic bass strings.

    I put the Klipsch back in the closet ... I may eventually look into adding a JL or a second little REL, or a bigger REL (or two)... but for now I think I prefer the smoothness of my system with just the REL, without the Klipsch added.

    When we move, depending on setup in the new house, maybe the Klipsch will go back with the surround system...

    Re: Mis-matched subs

    Randy,
    I should have added that the multiple subs are pretty easy to set up IF you have a mic and REW or other analysis software. Doing it by ear would be pretty tough.

    I started with one sub in my listening position, did the "subwoofer crawl" to find the best/loudest bass locations, chose the most convenient, put the 1st sub there and repeated the process with the second sub. Once the subs were placed, I did a frequency sweep, identified a null, and adjusted cut-off, damping, and volume on one and then the other to minimize the null, repeated the pink noise and dithered the settings on each sub to make sure I ended up with the best response.

    Well I was resided there from the 2nd grade until I moved to the awful Orlando area in 2002. I enjoyed Ocala, if you like fishing, golf, hiking, bike riding there are lots of opportunities.

    Re: Mis-matched subs

    Hehe.... so there is some traffic in Orlando ... Well that will only be encountered when wife does a shopping trip (outlets, Costco, malls, etc.... Frys )... or when someone visits that wants to go to Disney.... can almost guarantee that traffic is not any worse then what the 101 has become every day... even on the Central Coast, but certainly if you venture south of Santa Barbara.

    Oh yes CA traffic is the pits but whats got Orlando all screwed up is the I-4 expansion project. I-4 runs from Daytona and goes right through downtown Orlando on to Tampa. The work is centered around a 21 mile area right in the middle of Orlando. More than a year into the job, the I-4 Ultimate project is humming right along toward its scheduled completion in 2021. So the roads are all backed up everywhere with detours etc.. its a blast.

    Re: Mis-matched subs

    Fun fun... sounds like for years whenever you were going south, Yankees game in Anaheim, Frys in Oxnard, etc.... Santa Barbara would always be backed up because of non-stop construction...
