JL Audio Fathom IWS-SYS-1 In-Wall Subwoofer System$4,500 Review

Read Here 

 

While the sub was burning in, I took advantage of the repetitive playback of a heavy bass track to check out these various isolation techniques. I had installed the sub in a normal, ordinary interior wall separating my home theater and a hallway, so while the sub was play- ing, I walked out into the hall. Not surprisingly, I could hear muffled bass coming from the room, and the wall was vibrating slightly—but nothing an in-room sub wouldn’t have also caused. The amazing thing was this: When I ran my hand along the wall of the hallway, spanning multiple studs, it was nearly impossible to tell where the sub was installed. Even more astonishing: As far as I could tell, there was a nearly equal amount of vibration along the wall on the left side of the door as there was on the right side, where the sub was installed. Those results made it well worth the time and effort involved in the installation.”

SVS PB16-Ultra/SVS SB16-Ultra review

Read Here

 

 

The Bluetooth app is perhaps the least impressive part of the PB16-Ultra/SB16-Ultra package. It’s easy to read and won’t take you long to get used to (there’s an in-app tutorial to guide you), but I did find it sometimes being laggy in operation and had some ‘not-in range’ drop-outs despite standing right next to the woofer. Also, the sliding scales on the parametric EQ system are quite fiddly to operate on a smartphone. A phablet or tablet will provide a better touchscreen canvas.”

REL T/9I SUBWOOFER REVIEW

Read Here

 

“Staying with the counter intuitive, you should do this more considered setting up procedure even if the sole purpose of buying the subs was to satisfy your basshead desires. Ultimately the REL T/9i duo are bringing more bass to the system, but they are also bringing control; so those deep bass notes will have more energy, more clearly defined ‘shape’, and greater texture. OK, so you will probably end up with the subs set higher than most people, but going through the process is rewarding and produces a better bass than simply turning everything up to 11 and judging bass by the number of loosened screws and evacuated bowels.”

JL Audio Dominion d110 Subwoofer Review

Read Here

 

“I’m not sure what Taylor Swift has more of: No. 1 singles or ex-boyfriends. Regardless, she knows how to write engaging music, and “Blank Space” is no exception. The song has an airy feel to it and harks back to the year in the title of its host album, 1989, with a synthesized beat that draws you in from the first note. But when the young lady starts to sing, the bass track kicks hard—really hard—and again, the d110s shined brightly. The bass response was tight and articulate, and it didn’t linger in the room for even a moment longer than it was supposed to. Impressive would be an understatement.”

RSL Speedwoofer 10S Subwoofer Reviewed

Read Here

 

“Satisfied that the Speedwoofer 10S could handle the deepest depths of pretty much anything in my musical collection, I set my sights (well, my ears) on the upper end of its output range with the track “Roses” from OutKast’s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below (Arista), which features a pretty hard-hitting bass line with plenty of energy between roughly 60 Hz and just about 100 Hz. In other words, its bottom end tiptoes all over the crossover point between the subs and sats, making it a great track to test the upper end of a sub’s output. Here, too, the Speedwoofer 10S lacks for nothing, delivering not only the visceral slam of that undulating bass line but also the nuance that’s sometimes lost with larger subs.”
