    I am in the process of purchasing a jmlabs sib & cub system. (6 sibs) The sub that comes with the system is only 75 watts with a down firing 9" driver. I have the opportunity to get 2 of these subs OR the Chorus SW700 S sub which is a 300 watt front firing 11". Would the 2 subs work better?...They are definitely smaller and better fitting in the room. Any concerns with bass cancellation?...What would offer more volume?

    There are already plethoras of threads addressing this very issue, try a forum search :).

    The general consensus is that Two High Quality subs improves Sound Pressure Levels, lowers overall THD, and helps account for frequency anomalies and dips in listening rooms.

    If only life were that straight forward. The general consensus is that the above can only be achieved if each sub were to be placed in it's optimum position which isn't always where you would want them to be.

    As the sound produced by subwoofers seems so variable from room to room the only way to be certain is with a home demo.
