  • Hugh's impressions of Seaton Sound Submersive

    Just carving out some space for you my friend as I'm sure you are putting the finishing touches on your review.

      Hi Michael,

      How have you been doing?

      You are asking the wrong guy since I am not a wordsmith but I'll try my best here.

      I was rather impressed with your Conquest when we were at your place last time.
      Now imagine that with a lot more impact from 4 (Yes FOUR) Submersives.
      I think Sean W. Smith will do a much better job at describing the SQ of the Submersive since he's been a long time owner.

      However, here is what I found:
      Due to Peter's room characteristics, 4 Submersives may be too much and too overloaded with much less deep impact than, say dual Submersives in a better treated room.
      Nevertheless, as Sean described it in his post on Seaton's forum, it was rather incredible watching WOTW.
      I had never known it was that low and deep, even when I sat outside on the deck. :)

      At first, when they played the Danley, it was good but not any better than my dual MFW15. I didn't know it was the Danley until Sean told me. ;)

      Sorry Mark Seaton, I was originally thought the Submersives were playing and my initial thought was...so what the big deal with those Submersives...was I so wrong. :D

      Anyway, to sum it up, the Submersive is a real deal and at no time during my 2 hours or so listening did the Submersives showed any kind of straining at all.

      I think I'll need to sell some stuff to get 2 of these beasts.

              The Seaton Submersives really have intrigued me. I've always been with a ported subwoofer as long as I can remember, but I've always yearned for more quickness. My no-longer-owned PB13-Ultra gave me much of that, but not quite. I did use it most of the time in its "sealed" configuration, but then I lost a decent amount of output. Ultimately, the LS-9's are producing a plentiful amount of bass that I am happy enough not to want to buy one of these bad boys right away. Although, curiosity really gets me going... since my LS-9's are only producing usable frequencies into the very high 'teen' frequencies. I always wonder what it would be like to have a good quantity of output at frequencies in the single digits. :)

                I think it was a bit too much for peters room in its current state of tune but it was impressive....

                Here's a link to several posts on my thoughts on my submersive in the raleigh theater and some comparison to my dual MFW-15's and a epic tower.

                http://seatonsound.websitetoolbox.com/post?id=3184081

                I have just moved the submersive to my new place in california and honestly have not done much listening since we installed and eq'd it the other day.....

                Sparks are setup in my listening room here and I will be writing my thoughts on the sparks LCR, rocket 450 surrounds and the submersive shortly....

                too busy getting caught up on work after an extended weekend of stereo geekdom.....

                  I asked the right guy, I want the non bass-head perspective.

                  Sounds like it was a nice demo, I'm sure it was a good time.

                      Unfortunately I just moved to california and the RTP theater sits empty except for a 61" DLP and the Rocket 300 side surrounds :(

                              Is there any natural mountains in the Dallas/Fort Worth area or aren't they all man-made? ;) :D
