Very interesting. So different that what I'm used to.
It works. Try a variety of subs, not all the same, nor necessarily the same xo's. Use one primary in a corner with some room gain, then the other 2 or 3 scattered about closer to and behind the listening position, but 6-10db down from the primary. You really can't tell they're even there or on at all most of the time, but the overall bass response is much smoother. There is no particular magic or voodoo in this, as averaged measurements around the listening position confirm what's happening.
I use Room EQ Wizard and ocasionally HOLM acoustics.My pair of dual GR OB servos' go to about 80 hz. A sealed GR servo serves as primary in a front corner and goes to about 50 hz.
The pair go to 80Hz from where? The second to 50Hz from where? Is it 15Hz > 50Hz (pair) then 50Hz > 80Hz (single)?
I use Room EQ Wizard and ocasionally HOLM acoustics.I've been considering some sort of bigger sealed sub for ULF duty, which is what I'm thinking Anand was doing, 2 U-frames and a ULF or 2.
Like Anand I am crossing my home brew subs at 90Hz, so they are handling the 20-90Hz frequencies, I also run mine 90 degrees out of phase using L-R slopes and they blend seamlessly with my Abbey 12A's.
I guess I'll throw in my 2 cents... I built a pair of Abbeys last year and haven't stopped loving them. They have great imaging, dynamics and a very natural sounding high end (not overly accentuated like so many speakers). I run them full range with two bandpass subs in the mix (no crossover). The subs contribute from ~20 to 110 Hz. I am using a DCX & class D amp to drive the subs. Pics of the speakers and stands in are in this linked thread. Some info on the subs can be found at this link. -Doug
Anyone in the southeast region (FL, GA, AL, SC...) willing to allow an audition of any GedLee model?TIA.
I'm sure there is one...
Anyone in Austin with Gedlees? If not then Texas? Very interested
