Multiple Sub Woofers

Does anyone have experience in using multiple sub woofers in a two channel or home theater system? What did you like and not like about multiple subs?

Cheers,
Mike

  1. Good:

    -You can get more even bass response throughout the room.
    -Lower distortion at the same SPL

    Bad:
    -Takes space
    -Bad for your back
    -Costs more

  3. Oh yeah, also what receiver brand/model you have will make a big difference, some RoomEQ programs will NOT equalize multiple subs.

    But if you have one of the higher end models with something like Audessy XT32, it will allow you to calibrate your subs with greater precision and you can get flat bass response across a wide range of seating locations.

  4. Thanks, guys for your responses. They were all helpful.

  5. I'd also add... placement can get dicey. Incorrectly placed Dual subs can actually be worse. it will take some tinkering to get it right.

    I have a big Bose sub, an even bigger KLH sub, & a medium size Creative sub all connected 2gether and plugged into the Super Woofer spkr jacks on the amp component of my Fisher Amp & Surround Sound Amp system. There is no loss, they are all true to their sound (That's the beauty of older analog components.) But that's not all. I have a set of Aiwa spkrs with built in subbies and the sub wires are connected into the specified connections on the back of the Bose sub. It's great. Such a powerful sound with no other noise or interference. Just gotta know how to do it right.
