HERE I ASK THE QUESTION? FOR DUAL SUBWOOFER R-115SW IS VERY SMALL SPACE? IN A LIVING ROOM 13 x 31 feet, USED IN FRONT OF THE TV 13 X 12 FEET.

Recommended Posts

I have a living room 13 x 31 feet square, but espace used in home theater is 13 x 12 ..run system 7.2.4 ..I had SVS pb1000 and klipsch SW-110

different size..and brands ..now have R-115sw connected .was thinking was one is better dual before had. run audyssey but now subwoofer 

the truth, I don't know how to explain myself ... now the 115sw sounds, but the details of the other speakers do not sound as detailed as before, so I don't know, if it is very small space for such a large subwoofer? or have dual R-115sw to compensate. What do masters think?

I’m a “newbie” and would not consider myself a professional but home theater has been a hobby for almost thirty years. My experience is 2 subs work better than one. You may be able to use smaller subs and get more of what your looking. Best solution in most situations is in opposite corners of your front stage. I have always owned Klipsch. Got hooked at a young age. I have first gen RF-7s, and the Rc-7 for my front stage with recently purchased R-115sw’s in each corner and I couldn’t be happier. Just my 2 cents.

If I understand you, Angel, you have 3 subwoofers, now.  I recommend you try them near, but not exactly, the center of each side wall and the center of the front wall.  Avoid the corners, you will get more even response mid-wall.  For more info search the forums for a research paper on "multiple subs".

Not sure we fully understand ... you might try to add something to your question :)  

 

OK; not sure if 2-3 smaller subs would be better than a 15" one.  The 15" sub will certainly "dig deeper."  FYI, have a R-115SW in a very small (12x11x8) stereo room and it sounds pretty good ... and no room to add more :)  Check your crossover setting ... best setting depends on your "other" speakers. I use 50Hz as I play it with CF-3's which go down to 35Hz.

Might be amazing with dual R-115SW's ... but really don't think it's necessary for the small room.

Was talking about the crossover settings on the subwoofer itself ... BUT, if you are using LFE from your amp, your amp "sets" the crossover point.  Set it (in your amp) to say 10-20Hz above your L/R speakers and listen.  My R-115SW is set to 50Hz (on the sub) since my speakers go down to 35Hz. If I turn it up higher (like your 120Hz) it starts interfering with my speakers and the sound is horrible. Good luck :D

The RP-280F's supposedly go down to 32Hz.  I would try to set your amp at 50Hz first ... after that you can "play" with 40Hz, 60Hz and higher :) Yes, both for movies and music :D  Have fun :)

Try the subs you have.  Put them about in the middle of the side walls in your listening area.  See how you like that.

 

Multiple subwoofers give more even bass in the room and reduce distortion at any sound level because each sub is not pushed as hard. 

 

Two R-115s will not be "too much" unless it is too expensive.  I run 4 in a 17' x 15' room.  http://pointillistic.com/vmps-audio/subwoofers.htm
