What do to with a PSW120
I just picked up a PSW120 for $20. Couldn't pass it up. What should I do with it?
I could add it to a 2 channel setup with Monitor 5s and a Technics SA400, or
I could add it to a HT setup with RTi35s, RTi25s, CSi3, PSW111 and an Integra DTR30.3
I'm leaning towards the 2 channel, but was wondering what others think.
Well I guess flipping it is a third option.
I went and hooked it up to my two channel system and I'm pleasantly suprised. I wasn't expecting much, but it sounds better than I thought it would. This system is in my bedroom and when walking around the room it didn't seem to make a difference. But when I lay on the bed there is a noticeable difference. I'm still tweeking the setting but I listened to Nora Jones Come Away With Me and John Hyaitt Master of Disaster and both sounded better than without the sub.
Add it to your existing 2 speaker setup and make it a 2.1 system. That is a good entry level subwoofer which can be used in medium to small size rooms. My experience with downward firing subwoofers is that they should be placed near a wall in order to produce rich bass.
