ok guys, I almost have a full audio setup at home. I have a Pioneer VSX-D510 receiver, Kenwood Center channel speaker(dual 4" mid/bass 100 watts 8 ohms), 2 Kenwood surrounds(4inch mid/bass 100 watt 8 ohms) and I have 2 borrowed front speakers. The front speakers are Technics SB-A11. Now, these are my parents speakers and they excellent but I have no sub so i redirect the bass to these speakers. Now, the upper bass is strong and clear but the low bass will occasionally distort at loud volumes. For example, in "The Rock" when Mason and Goodspeed are in the morgue and a marine is injured on the floor, Mason shoots an overhead machine of some sort and it lands on the marine, this part distorts heavily. Now, I'm not sure why because the speakers have 10 inch woofers(about as big as a good sub) yet they choke on this superlow stuff. They perform excellent in music where they can make my jaw shake. Yet, I have heard friends systems that do not choke on this bass even with satellite system and a relatively small 8 inch sub. Why would an 8 inch sub outperform 2 10 inch woofers? I am thinking that maybe a sub can move more to provide greater air movement because it is allowed to move more. Am I wrong? Anyway, I need to give the speakers back soon and I have seen Mirage 360s on sale second hand for only 60 Canadian dollars. I will also buy a sub - probably 8 or 10 inch. Now will the new speakers likely sound better? I'm not complaining about the Technics speakers, as they sound fantastic, but I don't want to miss out on the superlow bass.
