Stereo subs - Do they rock or is it overkill?
 
What do you think about running stereo subwoofers?

I only have one sub currently and am thinking of getting a second one since I have a fairly large room.

I have found that they work better in my room than a single subwoofer. The room nodes are minimized and each subwoofer is required to work less.

Subwoofer setup is key. The likes of Defintive, Sunfire, Velodyne and Revel make it such that you have POWERFUL tool to get the most from your sub investment thanks to setup software, mics etc...

The idea that you can plunk two subs in your room and tweak a few knobs while you toss back a few Grey Goose and tonics - is a HIGHLY flawed concept. In fact, the results will be a mess.

In the end, I LOVE the idea of two subs. I have one Revel Sub 30 in my room now and will be adding a smaller Revel near my seating postion to add some SPANK to the overall system. I actually built my room (ModernHomeTheater.com feature pending) TOO ridgid. While the bass, with my Bob Hodas tuning goes low - it isn't loud enough for me. when I turn up the volume, it becomes apparent that there is a sub and the Hodas magic makes it so that you CAN'T discern the sub but it is VERY MUCH there!!!

I always thought that was the point though, That after you get the room right, get the sub tuned so you can get every low frequency, when it is there in the music, it sound its best and very natural. Without knowing noticeably that the sub was there all the time.
Doesn`t this avoid boomy bass and nullifying the high frequencies?

I don't have "stereo" subs, but I do have two of them. The only reason I got two was for symmetry. I certainly don't need two; I just wanted two. I'm sure most people would say the same. If, however, you have just a small sub that doesn't quite do it for you, then get a second.
