first, thanks for your posts. i really appreciate.
About your recommandations :
i have Reference 3A (grand veena) speakers. These speakers are for me incredible 'cause they have a huge Soundstage. I planned to use a Dspeaker dual core for the speakers not for the subwoofer considering that SVS's subwoofer have a parametric EQ. So i just need a sound analyser to adjust the sound's sub.
About your recommandation to use 2 subwoofers, i not sure that i could go with that configuration (space issue)
But about the initial subject, what sort of subwoofer i need to used (sealed or ported) in an audiophile perspective (only), i have noticed that you have different opinions.
Rel designed only Sealed sub, in the same time Wilson audio did a ported subwoofer (Thor's Hammer - i had a chance to listen it, and trust me it's fanstastic)
So, if they 're sealed and ported subwoofer on the HI-FI's market, did it means that the choice must be oriented by the size of the listening room (12 x 23 ft in my case) ?
