Question What makes your idea subwoofer?

I want a sub that is small, powerful and can go deep. I realize these three things might never come to fruition in a single product, but a guy can dream!

What would make your ideal sub??

My parameters are pretty much the same. The one sub that when it first came out, created quite a buzz in the industry. That was the Carver True Subwoofer EQ Signature. I believe the newly revised sub for 2007 now has balanced inputs, a measurement microphone and internal contour circuitry that automatically optimizes the True subwoofer to your listening room. At only 13 inches with a 2,700 watt amp built in, I think kennyt this will work for you.

Can you imagine two in the same room?

WOW!! You are truly going no holds barred with 4. I`m assuming its a fairly large room, so all that air that gets pushed and moved, does have somewhere to go. With 5 Levinsons, and four Carver subs, hmmmmmmmmm........

You must be trying to shake your foundation.

25' x 16' with the display to the right side of the long wall, the rear of the room has a wall that comes ~1/2 way across the theater area then is open into the kitchen and breakfast nook.

Logistically, four makes a lot of sense, it's easier to get good even fill of a room, much harder to balance and setup though.

Now back to reality, I can get by with one good sub, and do! In fact in this room, the Paradigm Servo 15v2 literally shook me while watching King Kong! So I will stay with one for now. I want to see the new Sound Matters sub that's 4" tall, maybe I could fit some under some things.....
