    I always wanted a robot subwoofer. It would react to the bass response measured by a spectrum analyzer at the listening position. It's connected wirelessly with the analyzer, then it will use its wheels to move all over the room automatically to the best position for the deepest and smoothest bass.

  • Jey Lee
    Jey Lee18 วันที่ผ่านมา

    You definitely do NOT need a sub when you have premium speakers. that's complete bullshit...and you CAN add curtains to improve the window, even blinds would help. bass is omnidirectional, does not matter where you put it, distance from listening area matters more than anything else, not where or how it's positioned.

THEY ARE AMAZING!!! get 5 of these lol hook them up to your ARC system yo! that AVS sub you have is trash compared to a dark matter! these are so versatile!!! you can use these as normal home speakers. have them turned down nice and low they sound great! YOU WONT BELIEVE HOW AMAZING THEY SOUND! even at super super low volume! trust me mind blown! lol. but yep dark matter all the way! for life! lol. my friend pat uses them in his living room for surround sound... he is the shit! lol he is the writes for Larry the cable guy lol and lots of other comedians cool guy! you should see his jaguar O.O v12! its sick!!!! custom sleeper! but yep lol he is comparable to Steve vai this guys shreds!!!!!! all my friends use dark matter! when they are going small scale.... there is better though! but lol you are looking at $6000 a speaker for the nest step up and just barely!!! its not worth it... not tell you get to $12,000! and those are kind of over kill for a home stereo a lot of people do it though... maybe like snoop dog lol idk. stick with dark matter.

    Is James the only one who truly cares about good audio at the LTT media group? I only liked the video because the second minute and thirty seconds was proving a point that you don't need more power to be louder, but for clarity and headroom. Just a heads up too, he can run those Klipsch towers down to like 60hz if he wanted to, especially if they are the bi amp towers where the highs are separate from the midrange drivers. I have the reference series R-15M bookshelf speakers and they don't even rattle or start to get warm on full tilt with my crossover set at 80hz... I should also mention that I have two 15" subs under my bed so James you definitely need a bass upgrade, but if y'all built one with integrated DSP you'd be a lot happier considering you can build it to fit your room and provide the thump you want

    I should just wait till the end of the video to comment but nice choice on the svs gear 👍 shoulda went with the PB16-ultra tho to match the 8" drivers in your towers, but you're also not trying to get loud you're looking for clarity so it makes sense
