Read Harman's consumer-oriented literature on multiple subwoofers:
Toole: Loudspeakers and Rooms for Multichannel Audio Reproduction Part 3 - Getting the Bass Right (PDF)

Multi-Sub Optimizer (MSO) is a free Windows-based software program for optimizing the bass response of audio and AV systems having multiple subwoofers. It optimizes the flatness of the combined frequency responses of main loudspeakers and multiple subwoofers at multiple listening positions simultaneously.

I don't see how you can go off reviews, unless they're about quality control problems, but not based on sound quality. I bought ELAC speakers everyone were going nuts about on forums, based on reviews alone. I thought they were going to sound like nothing I ever heard before after reading the reviews... But I absolutely hated how they sounded. I returned them after trying to like them for almost a month.

After that I listened to a lot of speakers, and ended going with a full Klipsch RP series setup. A lot of people said they're too bright, but they sound perfect to my ears. I've been really happy with them. I'm no sound engineer but I am a musician if that means anything or not, I don't know... Maybe the Klipsch are bright, but I thought the ELACs sounded dull and muddy, so maybe my ears like bright speakers. I know this doesn't apply to subwoofers but long story short, I don't go by speaker sound reviews anymore. It's tough to know what will sound good to you compared to a reviewers ears... Reviews are good for build quality but to me thats about it... So I guess it depends on what they said in the reviews.

I say go listen to as many speakers as you can till you find some that sound good to you.




I've tried both and the r112sw was noticeably louder and sounded better to me. But whether its worth almost double the price is questionable. Depends on a lot of things... your finances and what you would like to spend, how big of a room you're using it in, whether you currently have a sub or not, etc.

If you don't have a sub now, the cheaper one would make a huge difference... The r112sw is a noticeable upgrade, but you would have to decide if its worth it to you.




Yamaha receivers are good.
With subs you get what you pay for typically

I would save, spend more on an HSU, that Monoprice deal that is out there, SVS, or Rythmik. What is likely to happen here is you spend $300 and want to upgrade it in 18 months, and then spend $600-700 to get one of those which I mentioned
That depends on the rest of your speaker config. This sub will practically work with anything.

What's your budget? What speakers are you running?

Was about to pull the trigger, AVSforum doesn't recommend Klipsch at all.
Why is that? I'm thinking about updating my center speaker to one of theirs

If you want the best bang for the buck, Sony has great beginner receivers, and their strdh-590 is an excellent one for this Subwoofer. It is a 5.2, 4k, about $250, and is easy to set up and maintain. If you want to spend money, that's a whole other story

That's a simple solution: If that's your determining factor, why not get what "AVSforum" recommends?

Not a fan of the color. Would have preferred black or walnut.
