Hello everyone, I am considering an upgrade for my Energy esw-8. Now I am considering buying the R-112SW, however I have not been able to find many reviews on it. I have heard the Sub 12 in action which I liked a lot in terms of power, and they seem to be pretty similar to me (Keep in mind that I am not an expert in this field, so if I'm missing something please forgive me). Looking at the specs sheets (Sub 12) (R-112SW) it seems that the main differences between the two are: 650 watts vs 600 watts dynamic power in favor of the sub 12 24Hz-120Hz vs 24Hz-125Hz frequency response in favor of the R-112SW Bash vs All digital amplifier for the sub 12 and the R-112SW respectively Output: Max continuous output sub 12: 117 dB @30 Hz 1/8 space 1 meter Max acoustic output R-112SW: 118 dB (Down-fire vs Front-fire for the sub 12 and the R-112SW respectively) (Copper Cerametalic woofer for the R-112SW) My sub-questions are: How important is the dynamic power for the overall performance? Same for the frequency response (especially considering that the difference in frequency is in the higher end) What is the difference between Bash and All Digital and which performs better? Is the output information given on both spec sheets comparable? and if yes, which one has a higher significance (and thus gives the edge to the respective subwoofer)? Does the material of the woofer make a difference in sound/performance and then my main question is of course: In terms of performance, which of the two is better? The Receiver I am using is the Denon AVR-1912 (will probably upgrade in the future, but I don't know within what time-frame) I am aware of the fact that the Sub 12 has been discontinued, but in the case that the Sub 12 is significantly better buying second hand would be an option or saving up for the R-115SW and upgrading the Receiver proportionally(The latter not being preferred in terms of financial resource management but if the upgrade isn't worth it and the sub 12 not available it's better to save up and wait as to me this is a long-term investment). Thanks in advance! (Tldr; see main question )
After one week i absolutely love this sub and i wouldn't change it for anything. There's only one little thing i recognised. Everytime the sub switches itself off, i hear a silent "plop" sound. Very quiet, but recognisable. Is that normal with that sub or is there a problem with the one i got?
I upgraded my R12SW to a R112SW, and i'm slightly surprised with the outcome. The sub is fantastic. Powerfull, low, clean sound...but one thing bothers me. I use the exact same setup that i used with my R12SW (same level on the yamaha receiver, same position, same test movie). To get the same loudness i had with the R12SW i have to push the gain level to at least the same position as i did with the R12. Does anyone know why? It has way more power than the R12 (300 Watts, the old one has 200). So i can't figure out the reason for that. Thanks in advance for every answer!
I'm looking to build a home theatre set up at my new house in a room which is 20' by 29' (Yup, quite a large room) in dimensions, to be used as a living room. You can assume the space used for the System will be 3/4th of that. Right now I am looking at a 7.1.2 configuration with 2x RP-260Fs as front L/R, 1x RP-440C as centre 4x RP-240S' for surround, 1x R-112SW subwoofer, and 2x R-1800-C as ceiling speakers powered by a Denon X-4300H Would this configuration suffice for the room, or would it be too underpowered? I was also given the option of the RP280Fs, RP-150S, RP-450C with R-115SW, but this seemed a bit pricey for my liking. Also wanted to know if upgrading the subwoofer from 112 to a 115 is recommended. Please give do give your suggestions.
