Oh, my friend may be selling his Mitsubishi Diatone 32Ē subs. If he does, Iím first in line. No, I donít know what the heck I will do with them. They need right at 20 cubic feet to work well. So basically they need a refrigerator for a box.
Yowza!

Maybe you could get a sub like that for when you want that feeling such as when watching movies or listening to certain types of music, and switch back to your other sub when you want accuracy.
That's a more concise way of saying what I was trying to sorta say. Thanks.

That's Mark Seaton of Seaton Sound. I have one of their Submersive subs and it's amazing. They are pretty expensive, but for the level of performance they offer, their prices are quite reasonable. So if you ever want to get a little nuttier, check 'em out.

They were recently offering the Submersive HP2 for $1,895. If you add a second, it uses the amp from the first, so just a passive unit, they're about $1,100 I think. So three grand for a pair, and a pair of them would be pretty brutal.

Compared to the Orbit Shifter, the Seaton sounds cleaner. Not by a ton, but I think it's a more musical sub, it sounds sublime, as many sealed subs do. But with two 15" that have quite a bit of excursion, they'll get really loud. I've heard mine solo and it will crank, a pair would be pretty crazy. And they aren't huge.

I decided to hold off getting a sub. My wife encouraged me to wait until we move in a few years. Then she said I can go nuts, making my home theater the way I want. She said she will be FAR less picky about aesthetics in a theater room in the basement than she is about our family room. Heck, she mentioned me getting dual monster subs one day. So she's on board, just not in our current home. That seems fair.

Three JTR Captivator 4000 ULF should do the trick.

But I ended up getting a very nice upgrade in my DSLR and lenses, so I'm happy.

Buying a pair of Magnepan MMG on Saturday. Trying to figure out where to put Them. I will most likely use them intermittently here and there, and not permanently locate them somewhere. For the near term I hope to put them in the living room, paired with my Monitor sub.

Magnepan do have a very cool "airy" sound. I might have to pick up some one day. Don't have a good spot for them now.
