If you run the T5's up front with the NHT X1/A1 amp...can you get by w/o a separate sub? My wife (Mrs. form over function) hates the separate sub idea...so this seems like a viable alternative. I will probably be using a Denon 3805 and use them for 60/40 movies/music. Thanks

Doesn't the T5 have a seperate sub? You won't get the gut wrenching bass like you would with a SVS but it goes into mid 20hz range. I think you will have plenty of bass but I should be one to talk. Posted Image Since I have complete overkill biamping NHT VT2's with a Sherbourn 5/1500a PLUS a SVS. Subtract the SVS (which would be about what you would have) and I still have lots of bass. The SVS moves furniture and rattles pictures though. Posted Image

Subs are built into the T5 system. Excellent, tight bass, very good output.

Yeah, I have no problems whatsoever moving furniture and rattling walls with my T5s. You basically have 2 12" enclosed subs being driven by an outboard crossover and amp. See if you can test drive the Depth Charged scene from U571, and you will be astonished at the underwater blasts as they coincide with where they are in the picture. You WOULD NOT need an external sub (such as an SVS) if you were to go the T5 route.

Check out the following review of the U2 (which is identical to the subs on the T5):


Especially take note of the following measurements:

Brent Butterworth measured the U2 to be 26Hz-180Hz +/-.2dB (not 2, *point 2*) with the -3dB at 21Hz and 250Hz.

I have T5s in my secondary system (with not 1, but 2 A1 amps for them), along with dual stacked SVS PB10 ISDs, and IMO, the NHT subs are better for music, while I feel the SVS subs are better for movies.

In my main system, I have T6s along with a SVS PB12-Ultra/2, and I also feel the same way on that rig as well, NHT for music, SVS for movies.

Wonderful system, Mark. I've always wanted to try full range mains for playing music, but don't have the budget. If some money ever falls in my lap, I'd strongly consider those NHT's. If you don't mind me asking, what did you have before and what do the T6's give you that a sat/sub system doesn't?

All this talk of moving furniture...haha The accuracy of the NHT's is mindblowing. While they may not play quite as deep, they certainly do sound better within their range. 24hz isn't exactly laughable...still very deep, but it seems that 20hz is the magical number these days. -Craig
