Running 2 subwoofers for music.
I've moved house and it has a large living area with marble floors. I had bought some Tannoy Mercury V4 floor standing speakers in preparation for moving in. I soon discovered that the large room created a bass problem, there was hardly any and what was there was in a very limited spot no where near my sofa.
So I've added not one, but two Tannoy HTS 101 subs to balance the bass throughout the room. My god the sound is awesome!
I've spent the whole weekend twiddling with settings and placement and the results are fantastic. I've listened to jazz, electronic pop/dance, rock, live recordings etc... The scale of the sound is incredible. I can shake the room with house/dance yet it always sounds totally controlled and clean. The double bass instruments in so many jazz recordings are so smooth, clean and full of scale. Kick drums can smack me in the chest if desired. It sounds powerful, effortless and natural not overblown or fake.
The good thing is the whole room benefits from this sound, not just one sweet spot. I've placed them diagonally opposite each other to even everything out.
I've never heard bass like this in a domestic setup, I am now a subwoofer convert. I've never needed one before, then suddenly I need two. The clean power is something I've never heard a pair of speakers achieve like this, it's another level and I always thought my system sounded good in the low end department before.
Just thought I'd share it is great to be happy with the hifi like this. I'm living alone in a detached property and making the most of it
