I HAD THE RW10 D AND UPGRADED TO THE RW 12 D, I CANT COMPLAIN AT ALL , IT SHAKES EVERY WALL IN MY HOUSE , I HAVE IT SET AT 80 HTZ AND MY VOLUME IS SET AT 0 SOMETIMES I NEED TO GO TO A NEG 5 OR 10 LIKE ON MAX PAYNE KILLER BASS IN THAT BLU RAY. I LOVE THE DIGITAL CONTROLS ON IT, MAKES IT EASY TO CHANGE SETTINGS AND LOOKS COOL TOO.

Does the 10" sub have enough power to tolerate the bass from some of the new movies? Somebody in the JBL thread was complaining about his 10" sub.

I have two Sub-12's and I also have the db in the receiver fixed in the neg with the gain just below halfway on the sub's.

When I first heard the sub at Bestbuy, I knew I wanted two of them. I loved how the bass filled the room.

At that time when I gotten two of them, I was thinking BASS BASS AND MORE BASS and thinking I got a nice deal on them.

When I went to hook them up, of course one at a time. I had one of them going by itself for awhile. A few months went by and I was thinking I waisted money getting two of them when one is banging and the gain turned down at that.

Reading about having two subs and how that can improve your sound, I decided to hook both just to see. BEAUTIFUL!!!

The bass is room feeling, the smoothness of the bass…

I didn’t know there was a sweet spot for subs, OMG I love when Battlestar Galactica goes off and the bass that plays when the credits are rolling.

I bought the XW-500d less than two months ago and I am in love with that sub. If I can find another one as cheap as I found the one I have now I'm definitely getting it for a 7.2 sound.

Here's the link with the specs:

Living room: Pioneer Elite HDTV, AsRock Vision 3D HTPC, Pioneer Elite BD player, Pioneer receiver, Energy speakers, and Yamaha subwoofer.

Bedroom: LG HDTV and Panasonic BD player.

Well right now I only have the Sub-10 to go with my Quintet III since I am still living with the parentals and didn want to over do it in my bedroom lol but I am extremely happy with the sound the Sub-10 gives and would recommend it to anyone who has a smaller room

You had some difficulty with your subs. Did you replace the amp/crossover on them?

He Big Daddy , As far as I feel the RW-10 can really hang in there, as for me, I have the Marantz -SR-7002 and I have the sub set to 0db, and LFE OFF and I run my sub 120HZ , Phase 180 and gain about 1/2 volume , and belive me it really shakes the house, wife gets pissed alot , My room size is 16x18 so not really big , but its really rocks, when I plyed Transformer , WOW, and as I was takling to you about my new toy the Marantz DV-7001 , which I'm using for Music only ,I have a real test cd for anyone that really wants the bass test , it's NickelBack's new Album, this thing has so much deep punching and tight bass its awesome to hear , I've also tried the Y-splitter on the sub , really don't care for it, but it's a great sub for the price, retail is like $500.00 I got mine for $330.00 when they were going to the D- series, so I got a steal, But I really just want more tightness on my bass, so thats why I want to go up to the RW-12D, and really that all my room can handle,.....Now I do campare this to my old klipsch sub I had the SW-15 , this thing was huge, 15 " on front & 15 Pass. Rad. on the back I ran this with a pair if Klipsch KG-5.5 It was really scary , the 1st day I got it at our old house I played some music I blew the Gas seals in our back windows , so I needed to open the windows to crank out..LOL , also I run that sub with 5(five ) Klipsch KG-2.5 for home theater m and back then it was really ahead of the pack , each speaker had a Marantz MA-500 , 150 Mono Block on them , I had five mono blocks , and an Adcom speaker selector I could switch back & forth for Music & home theater, for the main Left & right's. that was 9 years ago , and when I put the little syetem together it was really good , but I wanted to go the best I could get and I put a refference system together , My wife made a comment one day and said the speakers and overall sound was to parr with my old system if not better , that made me feel pretty good, ...LOL...this is my story & I'm sticking to it..

Yeah, I was amazed at the low end on this flick. My sub handled it with aplomb, but no wall-shaking. Seriously, its worth a rental for the LFE alone.

Haha, yeah I just got that as well and agree. I remember watching it on DVD with my little RCA HTiB... the difference is night and day. If you haven't already, try the new Hulk movie, Transformers, Iron Man and Kung Fu Panda (yeah, that's right!) for some more awesome bass.

All great movies great sound, i just wish i knew back then what i know now about ht, Could have saved a ton of money on htib. oh ya speaking of transformers my buddy who helped me with my speakers tricked his car out and calls it optimus prime, His plates even say opprime. Very cool show with some great bass demo action scenes.
