Saturday I picked up the Strata III I had ordered and got it setup using the track 4 from the soundtrack of Sneakers which has a repetitive bass drum. I ended up placing it in a corner to the left of my system and with a crossover setting of 27hz and the gain at the 12 o'clock position. Now to the sound. I hate subwoofers in music. I mean I really despise them and I thought I would never use one in my 2-channel system. All the subwoofers i've heard have the same boomy and muddy hyped up mid-bass with overhang that really bothers me. But this sub is nothing like the other subs i've heard. I like two-way speakers because of the way they image and my Tetra Space's are a two-way speaker. They have a open and spacious sound but they don't do low bass very well. My amp is a Conrad Johnson CAV-50 which has a great midrange and mid-bass but also doesn't have much slam. Well this sub was just what I needed. Unless you knew I had a sub you would not be able to tell because of the way it blends with my mains. With the sub everything I played from rock to classical and jazz sounded fuller and with more weight. Taking out the sub made everything sound leaner and thinner. The sub made the stage a little deeper and wider and the midrange smoother. If you like musical bass then this sub is for you. Now I have the imaging of a two-way and the full balanced sound of a good full range speaker.
