    Anyone using bass reflex plugs in KEF LSX?

    I just got a pair of KEF LSX and my plan was to keep them at the TV stand to use them for all music and TV in my living room. However, the stand is (as usual) next to a wall so they are quite close to a wall from the back (~10 cm or so). Furthermore one of them is quite close to the room corner...

    Subwoofer to fix natural roll-off vs to boost all-around bass?

    Around the web (and in my amp manual) I'm told that the ideal subwoofer settings (for stereo music) is to find set the subwoofer to only pickup sound where the speakers roll off. I've tried this and I don't like it: 1) If my sub only starts with freq below 50hz (the rolloff of my speakers), it's...
