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

I wanna get one big one with a saddle attached to it for when I'm watchin' Westerns. Maybe even watch Dr. Strangelove and pretend I'm B-52 pilot Major T. J. "King" Kong (Slim Pickens).

I have played in several bands 50 years ago and still like the feeling of having the band right in my room and that is what I get, whether it is a guitar or trumpet solo or Yanni or the Boston Pops, they are in my room and I love it. Of course, my system will only reproduce as good as what is recorded. If it is not recorded well, it will only give me back what is there. But if it is recorded well, it is like being in heaven. I am invalid so I want to bring the bands to me because I can't go and see them. One of the worst recordings I have is the Temptations whom I just loved when I was younger but now I won't even play the recording, it is sooooo bad. Happy Listening.
When you watch a movie like King Kong the walls must come down Organ music and the windows shatter!!

My room is 18 x 20 x 10 and on sub JL Audio Fathom F113 works wonders, of course the 5 B&W 802 help as well

That is really funny. I can just picture that. Thanks for making me smile.

Pipe Organ music is absolutely incredible. I don't know if you have seen August Rush(movie) but the part where he is playing the church organ is just fantastic. And all the guitar music in that movie is incredible just like they are in my room. Try the movie. Let me know what you think.
