    I did get an hour on Christmas eve when the wife popped out with the kids :clap: thank god I had the easy to follow snapbug tutorial (Thanks again Barry) Felt I got the hang of the BFD's filters, but found the main pain in the ar$e being the constant re-measuring with the SPL (As all other BFD owners probably found :rolleyes: )

    I did get a very good straight line going though, one that I'll be making more time to adjust in the new year...................

    I'll try and attach a copy of the response graph later on.............

    Excellent looking results, my BFD arrived a few weeks ago and am looking forward to having a play once I can be bothered to order the cables that I need for it :suicide:

    That's a great response you have there, I take it you're impressed with the PCU? My ASW850 has arrived and it's faulty, so STILL no bass :mad: Feels like months ago since you picked up the PCU...

    Yes very impressed, it sounded so much better than my old sub by just plugging it in. Now the BFD is doing its job the PCU is offering a lot more. Overall one of the best purchases I've made, not as pleasing on the eye as the beauty you've just bought :cool: but in line with the kit we've both had before ;) I'll keep my eye's open for when you decide to move the B&W on :D

    How are you getting on with the PMC TB2+'s ?? I had auditioned the FB1's before going for the ProAc's - have to say the build and sound quality of the PMC's was exemplary, great purchase there. :smashin:
