Great, you will have a more immersive experience thru a more uniform spread of bass SPL.
For a stand mounted speakers, it's pretty rare to see the light of 35 to 40 hz flat. More likley flat to about 80 hz. Some floorstander like mine can only see about 60 to 70 hz flat the most.
Btw, the MJ sub 10" or 12"? Ported or sealed? For 12" sealed, the most flat will reach about 27hz. Of course, corner gain will make the 27hz to about 20 to 23 hz for seal. Only measurment can check on that
That's what I had roughly done. Well, until measurement then.
I concur. Same for the people from Emotiva where my subs come from. But the corner, Im don't agree as we need to consider the nodes and antinodes as well as resonances and many others that were talked on when I attended last year Hifi show on EQ technics. The best EQ is a mixture of physical layout that electronic EQ cannot dial out with electronic manipulation that electronics can dial out effectively. The best SQ is still proper physical layout which all studio and acoustic guys will agree on. I'm sure of that.
Then turn all controls to their lowest position.
Find a familiar piece of music with a good steady bass to listen to over and over while setting up the sub/s.
Increase the volume on the sub until the sub intrudes on the music then back it off.
The art is to mix in the sub so you can't tell where it's positioned - you just know it's there.
Initial set-ups may not be perfect at first, spend plenty of time auditioning and tweaking. The true art of blending in a sub is for it to go unnoticed.
Yup, that's confirmed for the fifth time. I'm there.
REL recommend you place the sub as far into a corner as possible, then slowly pull it out from the corner diagonally inch by inch until it exhibits the lowest bass extension.
Check out the link below - it's a manual to set up a REL sub but you may get some useful tips.
Thanks for the Rel link. Let me read more of that.
TGIF again ........... Arrghhh, boss still around. No worry yet as it's 3.30pm local time. Still more than 2 hrs to go before sayonarah. That is provided he asks me to or he goes home.
