Dear Apollo66: I really like your 10T's and I admire to Mike Kelly ( btw, he was the designer of my ADS ones ) for its very good speakers designs.
Looking to the 10T crossover frequencies we can see that the woofers croosover at 360hz and from around 60 to 110hz goes down 3 Ohms ( impedance ) with and overall efficiency in the low range: 86db.
I respect the Jallen opinion but let me to show you my point of view about:
those woofers have the " job " to reproduce frequencies from around 450hz and down this means that the sound reproduction from them has a very high Intermodulation/harmonic Distortion where at the same time that the woofer has to handle ( example ) 30-40hz ( that means long woofer excurtions ) has to handle too frequencies in the 250 to 400hz that were/will be reproduced with those speaking distortions.
What happen if we try to integrate two ( not one ) powered subwoofers in true stereo fashion and crossing say around 60 to 100hz?, well you can/could have the answers here:
So IMHO and with those Aerial speakers I really think that you could have a heavy quality sound reproduction improvment.
Regards and enjoy the music.
Thank you for the response, and thanks for pointing me to the extensive discussion of subwoofers on Agon. Being a new member, I had not yet come across your thread "Do you think you need a subwoofer?" It looks like there's a lot of good info there on subs.
One thing I hoped my thread would uncover are specific <$2K subs that people found work well with the 10T's. Nobody has yet suggested such on this thread, but on your thread there seems to be a lot of discussion of particular subs. I suspect that getting a worthwhile improvement in my setup would require bigger and beefier subs than those available for <$2K. You apparently have settled on one of the Velodyne models and are happy with it.
For the time being I intend to take Jallen's advice and sit tight while I further study the pros and cons of subwoofing.
Your thread should be an enormous help.
