Heresys should fill the bill down to about 50hz, and there's good output below that. But if you feel the need for that last octave after hearing them you could always add a couple of inexpensive Dayton SUB 1200's, they make great speaker stands putting the mid and tweets at the perfect height. Picture above of my living rm system. The Heresys are being vertically biamped by the Dynacos, I made a couple of changes to the crossover.
I also have a pair in the bedroom running off a small vintage Kenwood integrated amp without any subs and feel like I'm missing nothing, they're a great speaker that's stood the test of time, and then some.
Inarguably THE worst sounding Amps sold to Naive Audio wannabees.. ever.
Small credence given when those are in one's system.
The new caps that went into my Dynacos when refurbished.
First, tell that to the late great J Gordon Holt. Second, until you've heard my setup you know not of what you speak padawan.
Here's an excerpt from one of Gordon's reviews:
We compared the SAE Mark II with four other amplifiers: a Dynaco Stereo 70 and a pair of Marantz Model 9s (two of the best tube-type amps), the top-rated (to date) Dynaco Stereo 120 transistor amp, and one of the costliest and most highly-rated Marantz solid-state units, the Model 15. Listening tests were made using a variety of representative loudspeaker systems.
The above came from a review 3 yrs after the ST120'S debut and it was still Stereophile's top rated SS amp, go figure. Not bad for the worst sounding amp ever.
But you keep shouting how bad they are along with the other ill informed, it helps to keep the prices down for those who know better, he says laughing all the way to the bank.
Nice rig! I like the finish. This is the first time I have heard a sub recommended for its brilliance as a speaker stand! But what you say makes sense.
It's never too late to turn back the clock.
