Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

Depends on the main speakers

Aerial 3-way LR5 with 2, 9-inch bass drivers per speaker rolls off below about 40 Hz so two subs can be adjusted to overlap in the roll-off area and fill-in below. The sealed box will provide superior bass definition compared to a bass reflex design, in most cases. The Aerials are designed to take the power and do not distort in the low frequencies, they just roll-off before the lowest frequencies, so not sure a filter would sound better in that situation.

BTW, are you suggesting using the cross-overs commonly found on the better subs, or something else. Is there a high-pass filter you recommend that doesn't to too much harm to the signal?
