1 post and that's it?

Assuming this isn't a wind up/prank post.... Spec your sub to meet the level of the rest of your system.

i know RBH are nice speakers.

i would reccomed a minidsp 2x4 and a perhaps 4 12" sealed long throw sus with perhas 250 watts apiece.

the dsp will allow you to integrate the bass between the RBH and 20Hz.

Under 80hz is more rumble than slam.

Using same room and subs, double 15's work well for pounding bass, better than many other combinations I've tried.
Very interesting. This is very close to the frequency range where I run my push-pull, slot loaded speakers. ( In my case, 60-250Hz ). But I am only using 2x12's per side. 100db/watt sensitive. The room is a tad bit larger than 3000
cubic feet. I do run subs below 60hz, and I would agree with you, it's mostly just "rumble". Of course this adds to the sense of "scale". Many times in the past, I have recommended the use of 2x15's per side, for a bass solution that does not commit to using "subs". 4x15's per side should be even better !

I agree, i've had luck with double 15's only (no subs)crossed at 750hz.

There comes a limit for most of how how many boxes we can squeeze in.
