Default Re: Stereo subs - Do they rock or is it overkill?

As for sound quality, the larger the speaker (18" comapare to 12'), the better the sound. Also, the more "throw" the sub has, the more air that it moves. This is what gives you feel. Time alignment with your other speakers (if your sstem allows that) is what will assist you in getting clearer sounds over muddy ones.

You can visit our site at for more information on designing a room for sound and placement of speakers. I hope this information helps.
Never heard of this before (from your web site):

POINT 2 - Dimensions

If your room is 12W X 16'L X 8'H, notice that all of these dimensions share a common denominator of 4. This goes back to the same audio anomaly's mentioned in the previous point. However, you can change these figures by just 1 foot and eliminate many of these problems. You would also eliminate the "common denominator" factor.
Also noticed you sell BOSE! HA HA
