    Several issues ago in Stereophile Guide to Home Theater there was a positive review of the Subwoofer Optimizer
    System. This, according to the manufacturer and the
    reviewer, acts to 'attenuate an audio system's major room
    mode resonance to provide significant improvement in
    measured and subjective bass performance.' It cost $300
    and fits between your receiver or pre/pro and your subwoofer amp. Does anyone have this, and if so, how do
    you like it? It sounds like a worthwhile addition to me,
    concidering the less than ideal situations in most home
    theaters. Thanks. Fred.

    The SOS is a single band parametric EQ. Most non-treated rooms have more than 1 issue, so the $300 might be better spent on one of the Behringer products...
