I just finished putting together a new system. It seems to lack some of the bass my old system had. The RTA's sound very warm and clean and I understand they do not have a subwoofer, just a passive radiator but I think I was expecting more. Currenty I am running the following.
Pioneer elite VSX-74TXi reciever
Sony DVD Player
Direct TV with HD
Polk CS-400i center
Polk F/X 500i surrounds
The sub is big and powerful when listending to movies and heavy bass music with sub turned up fairly high, but doesnt seem to have the tight drum beats that my old Pioneer HPM speakers had. Is this just the way subs are supposed to sound as compared to speakers with subs integrated? Any thoughts?
