They have far better detail and staging than the choruses. For music that wants to dig deeper the choruses work a lot better, but for, lets say acoustic finger style guitar the detail on the heresys is much much better. I suspect that this because the choruses had a rather rough life before i took ownership of them in a club or similar, and am contemplating repair/upgrades on them.
Just a side note, I have never read anything where Geedes said you need identical subwoofers or it can't work. He has mentioned the the LF sub should match the main. Setup myths have no place in the scientific approach to settting up multiple subs.
Those RF-7's from South Florida are not a good deal at $1200.00 considering current market values for cherry at between $600.00 and $900.00. With that said, folks would pay that much all day long just a few years ago. I do think as far as performance goes, they are worth every penny.
Well kind of both, going back to Hope to work on the museum, Volunteer of course.
The bad part, about 7 hours each way, the good part is we will be with friends until Sunday when we leave. That would be nothing for a truck driver or someone who drives alot for work, but it seems the older I get the less I like to drive/ride. But your right, being with my wife and going to be with friends makes it easier.
It probably wouldn't feel so bad but just a few days ago we drove to 5 hours to North Louisiana to watch our youngest daughter graduate and walk across the stage, our last of 3 girls to graduate from college, she is going to be a teacher for special ed kids.
Now we have to go back the same route but 2 hours further, I'm not complaining but I do love to be home.
A given room and gear can only equal so much perfection. Proper integration of mains and subs=
This is an image of perfection and unity. This should sound good and be slightly different in multiple setups. Since there is no one perfect time alignment, this represents the best that can be achieved in X room with Y gear and Z correction(EQ and room TX, ect.) with multiple subs.
The circle represents the HT and good bass. The spike are the negative aspect of the calibrations and HT due to being close to walls, suck outs from door or hallway open, asymmetry and what ever else in the room that prevents the perfect response.
Unless you are in an anechoic chamber or free field with no wind or atmospheric changes, you for the most part are dealing with this diagram. Even the work by Harman and Geddes has to be taken into perspective and the room that their findings are based one type of room or a room built for good acoustical sound. Horn subs are no exception. Sound wave physics still applies. They bring their own deck of cards to the table. Just decide which deck you would rather play with. The game is the same, the expertise in setup may not be?
This is an excellent topic and not easily answered in a few post and should generate good discussion. Ask more questions, refute any point that you don't agree with. This is how we all learn. Also post some graph for teaching purpose and to be educational. The subwoofer bassband is something we all can bend to our will with the right knowledge.
