Searching for matching(?) Subwoofer solution

Hi folks,

I have a relatively new setup in my home office (12' x 14' with hardwood floor) and am seeking recommendations for a subwoofer solution.

Speakers: Ologe 5
Preamp:    Bryston P26 
Amp:         Forte 1A
Budget:     Flexible but just want something to provide a good match for the above components.
Music:       Mostly Classical and Jazz.  Some rock, some fusion.
Source:     Well, that's something else I am seeking advice on too and will post under the appropriate discussion topic

Problem is none of the local Hi Fi shops here in the Boston area have any experience with, let alone heard of Ologe speakers.  Couldn't get any recommendations there.

Has anyone owned or at least listened to these speakers? Or any of the other Ologe speakers?
The Ologe site ( features a subwoofer called Ologe 20 at USD $8550.  
Just wanted to look into alternatives before dropping over 8 grand on the Ologe 20.
 I am open to but don't know much about subwoofer swarms.

I am not looking for anything overkill.  Just a subwoofer solution to nicely complement my somewhat modest home office system.

Using sine wave test tones at five Hz intervals audiophiles can reliably locate 60 Hz and a few even down as low as 50 Hz. Nobody can locate 45 Hz. Below that the whole house is shaking. At 20 Hz your vision blurs. My wife can not locate 80 Hz. 
Having said that it is my understanding that mastering engineers mono bass below 100 Hz because they can get another 3 db before every ones systems start distorting. 
Hans, you still alive or has everyone burn out all your fuses?
Hello mijostyn,

     Was that a legit scientific experiment with published results you could refer me to? If so, my thinking that locating deeper bass tones (below 50-60 Hz) still requires the assistance of higher frequency bass harmonics above 80 Hz for localization is still valid but will need revising downward from 80Hz. I wonder what % of humans can locate bass tones down to 60 Hz?

I read the linked website info and it reads more like the work of a professional advertising copy writer promoting a client’s product that he doesn’t completely understand, which is actually the case, than a knowledgeable and experienced speaker designer sharing his expertise ...
Opinion stated as fact. Have you contacted Vandersteen to confirm your speculation that he neither wrote the quoted material nor believes it to be true?
The truth is that acoustical engineers and experts have known for decades that humans are unable to localize sounds (determine where the sounds are originating from) below about 80 Hz ...
Opinion stated as fact. I’ve already provided you references to scientific material that conflict with this claim. You might want to do some research.
CDs, DVDs, digital high resolution music files and Blu-rays ... all of these recording methods sum the entire bass content to mono below about 80 Hz.
Opinion stated as fact.
You’ve already acknowledged that there are zero commercially available music recordings on any format with stereo bass content below 80 Hz, since you’ve previously stated you had to revert to recording your own content with stereo bass below 80 Hz.
I never, ever said that. Ever.

It’s futile to have a conversation with someone who’s going to invent quotes as he goes along, so we’re nearing the end of your little "debate."
Psychoacoustics is the study of how the brain processes inputted soundwave information from the ears and forms our perceptions of sounds.
There’s much more to pyschoacoustics than just that, dear sir. Did you know, for example, that pyschoacoustics also includes studying how expectations, such as prejudice, influence what we hear? That part of the science may be of particular value to you!

Here is my favorite site that explains in detail how the swarm works.If you scroll down past what is offered for sale,there is much to learn there

I have never heard of or seen, in my life, and I am at retirement age too as you are and have seen and heard a lot - anything like the psyco bass bable b******t you actually take the time to write here and spew.


Please don’t be dissuaded from ever posting here again. There really are some cool folks here that are willing and able to answer and share with you in a nice, considerate and courteous manner.

Thank you for your original post question as I got to share some of my very limited experiences (not knowledge) with you and others when trying to decide what subwoofer(s) brand to purchase. Please comeback.
