    Other than Tom or Ron, who has tried both the PC series and the CS series in the same room?
    Tom or Ron, would the PC series be better in a "problem" room?

    Thanks

    "would the PC series be better in a "problem" room?"

    David:

    The CS (Cylinder Subwoofer) series are passive (non-amplified) whereas the PC (Powered Subwoofer) series have built in amps.

    There will be minimal, if any, sonic differences between the two.

    With the PC series you do have a built in crossover that could be used to tailor the upper end response of the sub to your room/system.

    Hi David,

    John already answered well.

    What is it about the room that is *problematic*?

    Doing the Avia sweep I get alot of peaks around the 60-100 HZ area according to my sound meter. I don't use an EQ. Also, my room is 13'x 21'which forces me to put my speakers on the 20' wall to improve imaging but surround speaker placement is not optimal. I have been struggling to get flat bass response in this room for a long time. I have tried just about every possible location for my sub. Very frurstrating. Oh well back to the drawing board.[​IMG]
