Just received a “buddy” for my current Rythmik. This should be a fun evening.

Got them all hooked up. Since both subs are on the front wall I copied the MiniDSP settings from the current sub to the new one. Hopefully that will work until my next full calibration. I need to do some listening sessions to get it broken in. So far you can feel the bass more which is good.

Hello Dan, do the panels behind the speakers actually help reduce room modes in the lowest frequencies?

The corner bass traps do.

Do you have measurements made with REW?
Can you put the .mdat file?
It is simple curiosity to see the acoustics of the room, Waterfall, Spectrogram, RT60, ETC, etc, etc.

I don’t have this info. I had a professional come in and calibrate the system.

They work down to about 80-100 Hz.

Looks great. Those cars are definitely going to be rolling off the sub in short order.

My cat causes more issues with the cars than vibration from the sub. They don’t move much surprisingly. I had more toys on the walls on shelves that didn’t survive. I had to remove most of my decorations because of flying objects.
