EDIT: Steps to go insane 1) own stereo subs 2) convince yourself that you hooked everything up correctly after moving gear around 3) when "where the hell did all the bass go" happens, and the knobs are all the way up. Still blame the room. 4) beliving it is the room or possibly one of the settings, equilize with the BFD 5) play some movies and get really pissed that you are clipping and bottoming out and still aren't getting much bass 6) get pissed off and revert to a previous RCA configuration 7) get pissed off even more cause nothing is working 8) double check all wirings and polarities 9) get a battery out and test the polarity of the speakers 10) realize that one of the subs was internally wired (on accident) out of phase and that you reversed wiring on the previous hook up because you didn't want to pull the driver 11) kick yourself in the ass a few hundred times 12) re-wire and vow never to do that again 13) re-equalize and FINALLY enjoy a movie ...the worse part is when you start to doubt your system and think: Screw this. Damn it to ____! I am just going to sell my system, get the outlaw770 w/ 300watts/ch, some MTM's and a pair of Tumults PR's with the K2 and use shear force to rip down the walls and overcome "the room" ..ok...hope you all had a good laugh oh well. Atleast my system sounds a lot better now in the new arrangement!
