Who is not using sub(s)?
« on: June 01, 2012, 11:33:12 am »

How many on here using full range without subs? and which monitors..

enjoying the 801 M2/3 here without subs. not in love with the pushed high mids on them.

N802 in my room would need sub. D1 would not.
N801 not same league as current 800/802 models?

No sub here, ample information to 25Hz in room with PMC IB1S. I have always felt it is a step removed from ideal, an ass to integrate and better all round to have big mains.

The only subs in here anymore are from Subway. 

6" BMT double-meat -- The regular doesn't really fill me up but the foot-long just has too much bread.  I've found that the double-meat option is the way to go - Especially with the BMT and the Spicy Italian (although the SI gives me a bit of heartburn occasionally, so I usually just stick with the BMT). 

IMO/E, YMMV, etc., etc.

ADMITTEDLY, it probably wouldn't "bug me" much to run a set of parallel subs just for the occasional "uber-thump" factor when the hip-hoppers are sitting behind me -- But they'd have to be units that LP at like 30-35 and sink down to the mid-teens to make it worth the trouble...

No subs here, SCM20 ASL Pro's. Not ideal, but am checking low bass on HD600's and Voxengo SPAN. I've always preferred the idea of just mains and no subs, so am not looking to get one. I'd rather upgrade to bigger ATCs instead, when funds allow.

Maybe the only person here that has subs is Brad? And he's got a Grammy. So maybe we're doing something wrong?!  :)

Yeah but Brad has the 802's and they roll off at 39hz.  Subs really make sense with a 39hz roll off.  My Focal's roll off at 40hz.  My old room (small) a sub would have caused more harm than good.  If I was sticking with the Focal's in my current room I'd definitely get sub('s) but instead I bought a pair of Tyler D1's which are spec'd at 28hz.  Should be plenty low and everyone I have talked to said they actually extend lower than 28hz before roll off after break-in.  2 more weeks until they are here probably!

I didn't realize the 802's rolled off that high. They look like they'd go much lower... Maybe that's the 800's.

http://www.audioreview.com/cat/home-video/home-theater-packages/b-and-w/nautilus-802/prd_372922_4281crx.aspx

"Product specs and technical features:

Nautilus tweeter,3-way vented box system.

Kevlar brand fibre cone fst driver unit

Matrix cabinet

Flowerport


Frequency range: -6db at 27hz and 30k hz

Frequency response -39hz -20k hz +-2db b on reference axis


Crossover frequencies:350hz and 4k hz

Dimensions:

Height:43.5 inches

Width:15.2 inches

Depth 21.6 inches

Weight:154 pounds"

Not the greatest resource link but it was the best I could come up with via a quick Google search.  I was interested in a pair not too long ago though and when researching I read time and time again -2dB down at 39hz (not sure why the spec -2dB instead of the more standard -3dB). 

Do you have a link where it states -3dB at 34hz or is that just your specific in room response?
