    Blimey Crusty.

    No, just nicely massaged. Most people on here do not have a subwoofer that meets even half of their recommended room size requirements.

    Hmmm i see your point.

    My room is 5m x 5m so do you think my subs may be a little under powered?

    I should hope so. The more the merrier I say. All you need to get is one of those' Buttkicker' tranducers fitted to your listening seat. :D

    I certainly think at least a listen to a larger sub might be worthwhile. In our demo room at the shop which is about 7m by 4m the REL Storm is the smallest sub in their range that comfortable works well, but we normally run a Stadium 3 in there which is in a different league.

    I must be the worlds first deaf and blind Hi-Fi saleman then. Got to give me credit for doing so well in such a difficult field for someone with such impediments.

    Niceguy & Crusty

    Hi, how are connecting your subs to your systems. Is it through the LFE channel?

    If not, then how is connected?

    Thanks

    hi ashmaster

    I have mine connected through LFE for movies and high level for music and L & R front. Just as the manufacturers designed it.

    Works a treat :smashin:

    I have mine connected via low level connection from the AVR300. The crossover on the sub is bypassed on this connection and is set to 80Hz on the AVR300.

    It is also connected via high level connection from the speaker terminals of my power amp. I have the crossover on the sub set to 38Hz for this input.

    Thanks for you answer guys, its just that I will be upgrading into HT seperates and I want to incorporate the subs (2X B&W ASW675) I bought into the system. Unlike your subs these only allow one option to be used at a time, either connect them through the LFE, or connect them using the RCA input in the sub (i.e. processor => sub => amp => speakers).

    The first option does't allow the subs to be used in direct mode, the second I will be without LFE. Is there a way out?

    Thanks guy, sorry for hijacking

    Great systems by the way :thumbsup:

    Thanks guys for making me laugh, that exchange a few posts back was great. Blind as a bat, deaf as a post - just plain funny. Thanks for making my day.

    Regards, Tom

    Very nice set up there but don't you get any thermal problems with your kit, particularly the power amp, in a closed-fronted cabinet? I've moved away from enclosed cabinets but must say I think yours looks much tidier.

    Cheers....Chris

    As I've posted on the 'get your plasma's out' thread the cabinet has no back - just an X brace to pin the top, bottom and sides together ... also the doors are usually left open when playing, shut when not ... although I am looking to remove the glass and replace it with radiator cover fret-board painted black to allow air through and have the door closed while on ...

    My cabinet is the same - wanted something where i could close the doors in case the little one thought he could play with my kit :)

    Had trouble finding a cabinet deep enough to take the amp, once i found one i knocked the back out and have the doors open when using it.

    Jont I Like your idea on removing the glass though :)

    Will take some new pics of my set up tonight with close ups of the Acram stuff as well.
