OK..good info mr bubbles. But i do have to ask...are both the 1C's and the 2B's unmodified????
At least give them the same playing field...LOL
Now i will be the first one to tell you..1C's don't work in a 12x12 room..at all...no matter what you want to do to the room. There just too large..period..they sound like junk.
Now you say a large room..well what is a large room and what is in it?? Now in my case..the 17X30 room, the speakers are pretty much sitting on a concrete slab basement...has a dropped ceiling with heavy acoustical tiles in it....has no furniture on the sides or in front of the speakers, and i sit 15 feet back in this room. There is a bar at the end of the room...thats about it.
Now the 1C's will pretty much kick your butt, when i'm sitting 15 feet back in the room, if you want anything louder or more bass.....then your looking for CV's or something.
If you put 2B's in my room..and i'm sitting 15 feet back...sorry I just don't see the 2B's being better then the 1C's....BUT..just MY opinion on that. The SDA's are very room dependent...but i will say the 1C's are about the WORST on that, even the large SRS stuff is probably better. I have had these speakers for a long time, and played them in alot of "large" rooms...but not this size. These speakers have never sounded better..the volume and sound stage is massive, and there is no speaker i tried out so far that could come close.
