    Re: stereo subwoofers

    I did it a long time ago with a Radio Shack "Realistic" 12".

    No drama, but then I wasn't really killing the thing with a bunch of power. Maybe 50 watts / coil IIRC.

    DIYMA is also a car audio forum so neither is the best place. But I don't like talking to most HT guys

    If your looking for a nice HT forum try techtalk. It's parts express's forum. Tech Talk Forum - Techtalk Speaker Building, Audio, Video, and Electronics Customer Discussion Forum From Parts-Express.com

    They are big on measurements, so no $10,000 speaker wire crap!

    In many cases it wouldn't matter because the bass is mixed to mono in the studio. (So I've heard - and every thing you hear on the internet is true!!)

    Most people run dual subs for the added output at lower volumes.
    Plus it helps if you have a huge room a dual setup will help better fill it.

    Whatever you go with, check to see if you can daisy-chain the subs, it will help in your tweaking and tuning..

    Good luck

    Re: stereo subwoofers

    I ran stereo subs (Vifa M26WR09 10") along with my Usher S520 bookshelf speakers. Crossed them over just where the ushers started to drop off. It blended real nice. I used an Audiocontrol PCA (Phase Coupled Activator) as the crossover. I didnt actually cross the bookshelf speakers over. I let them run full range. Just blended the subs in to match. It was great. Subs went down flat to 23Hz with -6db at 18Hz or so. This is inroom response of course - probably helped by room gain.

    I just built some two way towers with an 8" driver and 1" tweeter that go just low enough that I dont feel I need a sub which is why I'm not running that setup anymore. New speakers are flat in room to 30Hz with -6db at around 25Hz.

    This was the old setup:




    This is now:
