Second post. This time with a question. I have the chance to buy a nice Rel 328 sub, used, for a good price. I'm trying to determine if the sub will be a fit for my new SALK speakers (still on order). I'm mainly interested in music listening applications for the sub.
Question is: should I buy the sub? Here are the factors I'm considering:
There are 2 ROOMS in which the sub could be used:
SMALL — about 150 sq ft., 7.5 ft. ceilings.
MEDIUM — about 460 sq ft. 7.5 ft ceilings
The SPEAKERS ARE THESE:
1. Salk Wow1 speakers (48Hz - 20kHz) http://www.salksound.com/model.php?model=WOW1
What does REL recommend with their "speaker pairer tool"?
If I use the REL website for speakers similar to mine, it recommends the T7i
Here is that comparison:
T7i 8 inch driver —vs. REL328's 10 inch
T7i 10 inch radiator —— vs. REL328's 12 inch
T7i A/B amplifier — vs. REL328's D-class
T7i is 12 x 14.3 x 15 inches WHD vs. REL328's 13.5 x 15.1 x 15.2 WHD
It may also be the case that I should just wait until my system is in place to audition subs with it — but that would mean I need to let this bargain slip by. Any thoughts about that?
Thank you for your time and advice.
