I always felt that HF extension directly related to a tight transient response.

If the woofer is covering 30-150Hz, I wouldn't expect transient response to come into it: the leading edge of an impulse will be in the multi-kHz region.

I have a set of stealth "subs" similar to Daves using Mark Audio Woofer no 6s.
I find they're a bit much with the A7s in my room but work well with the Fostexs

Interesting; what do you mean by at bit much with the A7s? Too much bass or poor integration?

Thanks,
Dave

To much bass and I love lots of bass, the A7 FH3s have plenty

Thanks Thornspawn.

What type of amp are you powering your A7 FH3s with?

Cheers,
Dave

Using Fostex 126s and find that a sub is essential. It integrates well, however, and I'm very happy with it.. I have thought about getting some Alpair 7.3s but have so many projects on the go that this decision has been put on the back burner for a while.

for posterity's sake, which (sub)woofers(s) ( I still have trouble with the first part of that word) are you using?
