Indeed Smile It was the Paradigm statement sub 2 - A steal at £9,949  :O

It has a unique design, or certainly one that I have not seen before. Hexagonal in shape with 4 drivers.

Six drivers Smile

Pretty much the pinnacle of accurate bass in one box...

Oh wow it is six!

So one in each corner then >)

Yup, in a force cancelling arrangement >)

Nice!

I need to have a listen to this thing! I would imagine it works best in pairs.  One on each side wall maybe Smile

RE: New JL Subwoofers

Good review of the Sub 1 Here - this guy appears to really know what he is doing - taking measurements of distortion etc.

Thats impressive stuff - However in the setup description - he runs PBK First and then runs Auddessey to auto setup.

Now correct me if I am wrong in doing so he is going to be double eq'ing the bass?  As Auddessey will eq as well no doubt.

 

Does that sound like the right thing to do - it doesnt to me??

If you run PBK first, that pretty much sorts out any issues with regards to the sub. Running Audyssey afterwards will EQ the frequencies above those the sub is running at, and it will have far less to do with regards to the sub range because it will already be pretty flat from the PBK. You are double EQ'ing, but you'll find Audyssey won't have much to do in the region that the PBK EQ'd   Smile

David, Allen, I've got a projector & screen related query. Please check my thread in "TVs and Projectors". Ta.

RE: New JL Subwoofers

Boss, for the living room I don't think you will go far wrong with a Draper screen. Its motorised and hidden, I bevlieve it works well in a well lit room, I have always seen them in living room environments, but admittedly I have not tested it.  I only hear good things about them and they seem to be well received in reviews.

Perhaps a demo is on the horizon.  If it works well I am going to kick myself even more for not getting a projector screen!

I would have to agree. Heard the Velodyne's recently and the pack a punch as well though.
