At that price point and if I was in you position. New, its either an SB1000 Pro, PB1000 Pro (if you can get a good discount) or a BK12-300SB-PR.
Firstly lovely room mate ....
The TV unit is exactly the size it needs to be.That's a big TV stand too big... can fit a sub or two either side of the tv
ThanksFirstly lovely room mate ....
P.S: I've installed REW on my PC yesterday and used its "Room Simulation" to figure out whether having two subs would make a noticeable difference for the better.
Unless I'm not using it properly, based on where I could put the subs and my room dimensions there wouldn't be that much of an improvement.
My budget is ~£500, and would include the sale of the XLS200 if I can get it repaired fairly cheaply.I can't remember your budget but you could fit an SVS 3000 Micro under each plant... get one now and the next later on?
Yep, the mlp as that's where I normally seat.I assume you've based that on only one listening position though?
Imo the SB1000 Pro will be a considerable upgrade on the xls200. It's not much bigger in physical terms either.The question is : are two XLS200 better than one 12" sub (like the SB-100Pro)?
A couple of nights ago I was watching Aquaman and in certain scenes with high LFE the subwoofer was giving up.The sounds got all chewed up for a few seconds and then turned into a loud-ish buzz.
I can get rid of it either by switching the sub off, wait a couple of seconds and then back on, or by bypassing the high pass filter on the sub and setting it back to 120hz.
The problem obviously re-occurs when playing the same scenes and lowering the sub level is the only way not for it to happen.
In my case it doesn't stop it from happening if I don't change the sub gain or AVR sub output level.As you have found turning the frequency control from LFE to 120Hz stopped this from happening.
Interesting.In 2016 I added a 2nd Mono+ and this exhibited the same behaviour on the same three films in the same places. In 2018 I replaced the AVR and now neither Monos do this and are quite happy with the frequency control switched to LFE.
