Cut the cable in half and buy RCA connectors from Radio Shack or other electronic stores and make two 25ft cables. You can use them on both of your subwoofers. Make sure you buy RCA connectors for RG6 cables.

well disappointed that my sub didnt show up today.. im playing around with positions..

my old position was to the right of the left main speaker... and according to this formula http://forum.hsuresearch.com/showthread.php?t=3706

this is what i got..
31.5hz - 60dB
40hz - 65dB
50hz - 80dB
63hz - 84dB

now in the far left corner.. my numbers have changed
31.5hz - 62dB
40hz - 75dB
50hz - 85dB
63hz - 85dB

didnt think it would make such a difference.. my old settings the formula told me to bump up the sub 2dB for music and 5dB for movies... now its telling me to decrease it by 2dB for music and leave setting alone for movies.. i wonder how the pa120 will perform...

You should see a big improvement over you're RCA. But as you have figured out placement is key. I can't wait to hear you're review on it with you're cathedral ceilings. I still think two would be better in you're situation but I can relate to the WAF. Left the same message over at AVS.

It looks like the difference is because of the ceiling overhead. With you're sub in the original spot, wasn't you're cathedral ceiling overhead?

well on saturday I contacted the seller,,,, he stated the sub was sent off late friday and that I should see movement today...... so far nothing


oh well,,, I was really hoping to get it by today or tomorrow....

im already preparing my review for it
gonna do a review of my current sub ,, previous location and current... then do the same for the PA-120,,, initial review and after break-in ...

the only thing is,,, I NEVER listen to my system at reference level (70dB test tone from rcvr).... its always lower

If the UPS site still says Billing Information Received then your still gonna be waiting for a while. That means its still in customs and isn't actually being delivered to you yet.

While I was psyched for you getting it early, I'm not surprised. It's my one complaint about the shipper. They're not super fast.

Anyway, I dig that spreadsheet. I'm going to try using it along with one of the various test tone generators I've been playing with.

Shame on you. You are a cop. How would you feel if you saw clips of cops texting while they are driving?

I hope you will be able to sleep better in a few days. I am not so sure. Who knows? After you start playing the new sub too loud, I am sure the wife will call the cops and kick you out.
