  • Room Suggestion?

    Ok, I just started researching subs, so am pretty much a total noob in this area, but as I have just begun my search, I may have lucked out as it coincided with this sub coming out.

    A problem however is that the dimensions of my room are about as bad as you can get for this application. Its an open Loft apartment. Total sq ft is just under 1600. Ceilings are 13 ft tall. The bathroom is the only thing thats totally enclosed.

    My curret setup is as follows: Fronts - Polk RTI8's; Surrounds - Polk Monitor 30's; Center - Polk CSI25; Reciever - Onkyo TXSR703 and the sub is a Polk PSW303 which came as part of a package and I really swear that everything would sound the same if I didnt even bother hooking it up.

    So i guess my question, given my rather limited budget, is, would one or 2 of these Scamps give me any boom for my buck that would be worthwhile. thanks in advance.

    We listened to a single scamp in NJ in a room that was wide open with a 2 story ceiling and it was fantastic.

    2 of them should give you a surprising amount of boom.

      A knock at the door said "Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms" I thought it was a delivery.:biglaugh:
