1 Sub or 2 for X-Over at 80hz
I agree with all the posts above. Basically a bunch of trade-offs and can differ from room to room as to what issues matter the most.

But I'd like to repeat, sometimes one big, great, low, clean sub is the best solution in terms of size and cost per unit of quality and finding one best location in the room to site it.

And repeat (if not already in this thread), I tested 14 locations one day (when room was being re-painted). Big differences. So, test, test, test. Even your laptop mic will be all you need and all free.
HiFi aspirations since 1957. Currently working on motional feedback again... the final frontier in audio (and just posted data for a folded 17-foot pipe sub)

4 is better then 2 and 2 extra small ones are much easier to carry. :P

Default Well found my answer

Hi Guys, thanks all for the views & input. Have gone for two subs configured as mono & very pleased with the result. Found a recommendation from another member for a mono Fockford Fosquake bass amp to drive them & that has proved a real improvement in base depth, impact & drive from my previous amp. Cheers
