Thanks for everyone’s help.
Gotten my x3700H and gosh I missed my 5.1 sooooo much.
I think it’s really good nuff for me, for now.^_^
U got the multiEQ app? Can try since its cheap compared to hardware.

Also I recently got a second svs subwoofer and wah another positive jump in sound quality even for me, a single listener at home.

Dual subwoofer seems to help make my speakers sound more high resolution and the bass sounds more complete across wider frequency range even at lower playback volumes.

My two subs are different size though cos the price for bigger one dropped during 11-11 sale. So I left my older smaller one where it was, near corner of room while the newer bigger one I placed between left and center speaker, where I have less boundary reinforcement. Not sure if I am doing it right though heheh.

Whooo nice!! I originally thought need subs of same size. Thanks to you, now I know I don't need!! Yeah, I am thinking of adding another sub to my room. Haha, going to scout in carousell...

Eh I not expert hor. Dunno if same subs will be better also but my listening area is on right side of a long rectangle (old hdb 3rm) so I was thinking not symmetrical so maybe dun need same size sub? U may wanna research why many say get same size?

Two identical ones will be ideal
Similar range as a second choice
I’m using two JL Audio E112s

Oh I see. The problem is that I have one super duper old def-tech pro-sub 100. ITs well over 10yrs old (more like 20yrs) and long obsolete. Can't find another in carousell. If I replace it, I feel its a waste since its still good. So kind of stuck.

Hmm.... maybe I shift this sub to the living room. Then I can get a ew sub!! lol....... need my "finance minister" to approve though.

You can use this for now, but plan the next sub to be of the same model, eg the Starke 12" sealed sub is good value and a pair new won't break the bank.
Two JL Audio subs will be even nicer of course, maybe there are example on the resale market?

Never get the app, looks quite complicated to me....haha

My current sub is already between the left and center speaker.
Additional sub will also means additional wiring and power source..lolol, cuz my current setup wirings are all concealed. Was lucky to buy the system when I was planning my renovation.

Never know that a 2nd sub will improve the sound quality. will keep that in mind and make sure i try it when i go for an audition for my speakers upgrade!! Thanks bro :)

This tells me if I ever do reno I gonna ask them make hidden but accessible trunking for self adding new/additional wiring or for maintenance and replacement. Prolly gonna cost more though.

Nice! How much did you get it for? I am also thinking about getting x3700H or Yamaha A4A or wait for the RZ50.

Great idea! Last time I went to ac infinity seller flat, he showed me two giant DIY subwoofers behind his couch. They were each almost the size of a washing machine lying flat. Maybe that's why they say there is no replacement for displacement.

Haha!! Yes... I am thinking subwoofer is basically just for bass.... Big 12-14" driver with lots of power. Saw this 12" JBL driver for ~$100. Then get a powerful class D amp. Then use a 1000W computer PSU...lol...

How much if u bought new parts online instead? Your diyAudio site should have lots of build guides and kits right?
