Woe is me, the sky is falling.
The subwoofer on my porch has not kicked in tonight. It is powered, but no sound.
I have excellent speakers out here, but all speakers are better with a great sub.

It is behind my adirondack chair which is bolted to the floor and hard to service.

This Polk 4000 has been out here for years. Polk no longer makes a sub on this level.

Klipsch makes some great gear, but they have no sub on the level of this one (neither now does Polk).
I don't think this big boy is done yet. If so, I would consider Klipsch.

Polk and Klipsch make for the mass market, so you get more bang for your buck.
These days subs are made for movies and do explosions really well.

A sub for stereo music as opposed to video needs to be "very quick". That cost $$.
My take is if you can point to where the sub is in a room -- everything is off.

..honking Klipsch subwoofer in the living room and it rocks for sports and movies. Not great for just pure music though, so your point is taken. Sorry about your Polk. Hopefully you can resurrect it.

A great thing about being a audiophile with great equipment is that most likely you'll damage your hearing. Then when you get older you cannot tell the difference between good equipment and really cheap stuff.

Ohm F speakers. They were the most awesome things I had ever heard. So, before long, I had me a set of them as well, powered by a Phase Linear (Carver Designed) 4000 preamp / 400 Power Amp. Needless to say, he and I both had to get hearing aids at a relatively young age.

That does in no way detract from how awesome those listening experiences were for us armature audiopiles. When your equipment is capable of bass tones you can FEEL as well as hear, WITHOUT a SUBWOOFER, AND generate great midrange and crystal highs, that is some well engineered stuff.

Today, I own a "2nd Gen" set of Ohm Fs, but it jest ain't the same. Even with a separate Infinity subwoofer and small surround sound back speakers.

Now, that setup probably does sound really good, but with my diminished hearing, even with $4500 hearing aids, I can only hear so much.

:(

This guy has played on my porch for years in cold, heat, rain, and snow.
I have a higher end sub in my RedNeck bar. Most times I prefer to play tunes on the porch.

The deal of a quality sub is not to "shake" anything. You will not notice it is there until it is not.

I know what you mean but You don’t know what meant by shake. If you need it 400 watts would do it but it’s as good as it gets to being an accessory. I’ve had just about all of them & have a huge collection of speakers, subs & systems. High end JBL & Infinity subs are the best at being a blended accessory. I have a nice Klipsch sub in the living room. Polk speakers & subs are are very good too.

I sold my Paradigm 7.2 system from my bedroom and regret I did now, the sub was so awesome & smooth.

You have some good gear, bet it sounds great.

This porch sub is 1200 watts.

In my RedNeck bar have 2400 Bob Carver watts going to each McIntosh speaker as that is what it takes to open them up. It aint about being loud.
It takes power appropriate to make speakers sound good at a whisper.

Look at QSC. They make the best speakers for playing live music. I’m sure you can get a powered 12” monitor and hook it to your system. It will sound fantastic.

Thanks guys.
I have excellent gear, the sub is just down until I fix it.
Our friend TB just upgraded. After search and trial he got some powered speakers that please him. I bet they sound great.
The needle for my record player cost much more than that.

The deal for better audio is not one piece of gear, but the system you assemble. That takes time, trial and error.

SVS is making some nice sealed subs, around 1000 watts should do it. You can room correct it on your phone.
