Congratulations, sounds like a perfect set-up. Thanks for posting the review
Thanks for the review!!
I do, yep. I have it paired with some Magnepan 3.6s. It's a very clean sub, particularly great for music. The only RSL I haven't heard yet are the new re-packaged CG3s, but my understanding is that they're only a cosmetic change from the previous version, otherwise it's the same speaker. But yeah, the Speedwoofer is a solid value for sure.
It would probably be a very nice addition to an HT set up if the room was small-to-medium sized. If a larger/more open room, it may not be enough once the tracks get demanding. That's the main reason I use Power Sound Audio subs (Tom Vodhanels, one of the original founders of SVS's comapny) for HT and the RSL primarily for music. The 10" driver they use sounds great, but not sure how it would handle difficult passages in action films. No reason to believe it can't, just haven't really pushed it yet.
I was looking to get a pair of subs this summer for my HT. I currently was thinking of getting the Rythmik sub parts and building the pair of subs, but that would end up costing me $500 more than the RSL Speedwoofer 10s and a significant time sink in building the sub cabinets. The Rythmik can go lower, but will I notice it? I have been running with out any subs. 5.0 system.
Maybe I missed it but what are you running for speakers in your 5.0 setup? And you will LOVE a pair of Speedwoofer 10S's! Especially sonce you have no subs right now. Will completely and dramatically change your system. Also, what is the size of your room? If it is VERY large, you might need to go a different route or do more than two. But if it is say a normal, medium or small room, two is plenty.
JBL Studio 530s for mains and surrounds. JBL Studio 520C for the center. I have a medium to large size room and also adjoining room that can't be closed off. Looking at a pair of 15" sealed Rythmik subs now due to the room size. Subs are for HT and multi-channel music use. 2 channel will be a separate system with a rotating cast of speakers: full rangers, OB, and Omni's.
I am SOOOOOOOOOOO happy I came across this thread! I LOVE RSL as well! Well at least the Speedwoofer 10S, as I have pair of them in my theater room with my ZU Audio speakers. Anyway, I just got a pair of Magnepan LRS's and am LOVING those too! I am brand new to Maggie's and it's a different way of listening to music. I really like them. However without a doubt, they need help in the weight and bass department. I have been debating about trying a pair of different subs for the Maggies but now that I have found another Maggie owner running RSL subs and liking them, I may just get another pair and save myself a lot of money. I already know I like them for music, so why try something else and be disappointed.
