I had a Sony SAWM250,
8" Long Throw Woofer
Line And Speaker Level Inputs
Auto Power On/Off
Line output for connection of an additional subwoofer
Frequency response: 24Hz -170Hz (Yea right)
This thing was awesome for my room. I loved it.
Didn't matter where I put it, it did its job.
Then I got (what I though was a deal---i guess it was really)
The deal was this, 6 Precision Acoustic Speakers for my Sub. All brand new, still in the boxes.
1x Duel 6.5" 150 Watt Center
2x Duel 6.5" (1 soft dome tweeter) 150 watts
2x 6.5" Surround Speakers (soft dome tweets)
1x 8" 100 Watt Sub. Down-Firing with all the amenities.
At first I was Upset. Very. I thought I made a big mistake.
The Sub was horrible, as good as the rest sounded the sub was NOT carrying its weight.
I was (almost ready to) fight to get my Sony Sub back. It really did make all the difference in the world.
The damn Sub I had now was just plain ulgy sounding.
Then, I had an Idea, placement.......
I was at first, thinking that because my Sony sounded good there, this one should too.
And if it didn't, it was a problem with the Sub, not me.
hehe...how wrong I was....
After some (3 hours worth) of investigating, I was pleasently suprised to find out that a downfiring Sub required a kinder gentler placement.
After much testing, I found my Subs sweet spot.
I have to say, my crappy Sub turned into superman, all from placement.
Before you give in, before throw it out the window, make sure you've tried it all.
That Sub-par peice of sh@t, just may suprise you!!
Hang in there!!
