Schuesmp Posted February 22 Share Posted February 22 Last week, I placed an order for a pair of SUB THREE subwoofers and M5-HPB crossovers for use in one of my two-channel audio systems that features Audio Physic Cardeas loudspeakers and Balanced Audio Technology (“BAT”) vacuum tube amplification. The two SUB THREE’s will replace a single REL 212/SX subwoofer, which will be redeployed to an audio-video system with bass management and room correction incorporated in an Anthem processor. The Audio Physic Cardeas loudspeakers already dig deep into the low frequencies and deliver a flavor of sound and presentation I enjoy immensely, but I predict an uplift in overall system performance from partially relieving my BAT 75-watt vacuum tube power amplifier from supporting frequencies below 80 Hz - a big part of the SUB THREE’s value. I predict excellent results. I also run a separate system using Vandersteen Quatro Wood CT loudspeakers, which are tremendous and established my appreciation for Vandersteen’s approach to optimizing in-room bass performance. I like to experiment with different loudspeaker and amplification configurations, so have gained substantial experience re-EQ’ing the bass sections of my Quatro Wood CT’s. What a powerful and effective feature! Somewhat separately, I am SO GLAD to have a Vandersteen dealer back in Portland, Oregon. Stereotypes Audio took on Vandersteen not long ago, but have demonstrated commitment and knowledge. While visiting Stereotypes to place my order for the SUB THREE’s, I listened to several songs through the current version of the Model 2ce. So good! 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
