Ok, newbie here so be kind. I have read a few different threads about the idea of augmenting mains with a sub (or 2 in stereo) and just want a more educated/experienced view on whether it would be worth it. Obviously I am using this set up for music only.
Current gear consists of a Cambridge audio 851C (CD/DAC/Digital preamp) and a Vincent Audio SP-331MK (150w per channel @ 8ohms). At some stage I will get a separate preamp but only recently purchased the other gear and havnt got around to it yet. They are driving a pair of DIY speakers (3-way) consisting of SEAS drivers:
Woofer = W26FX001 (10inch magnesium cone)
Mid = W15CH001 (5.5inch magnesium cone)
Tweeter = Seas "Millenium" (1inch soft dome)
The speakers are based on a kit design I received from SEAS (with x-overs all preassembled) and according to the specs the low end should get down to around 30Hz (-3dB) however I don't think it actually does get quite that low (probably isn't far off from listening so far - but I don't have equipment to actually measure it properly) seeing as I'm sure I havnt done as good of a job as a master cabinet maker could have! Also the room they are being used in is quite open to other rooms which probably doesn't help the bass response...
Anyway, given this information, for accurate and overall good music reproduction would it be wise to opt for stereo subs (something like SVS SB2000?) or is it just not worth it??
