    LONG TERM OUTPUT COMPRESSION

  • I got some time this weekend to play a lot more with the Anti-Mode Dual Core 2.0 and dual V1500 subwoofers. I am really impressed with the V1500's. They really do a great job of filling my large basement area with some bone rattling bass. The dual configuration was extremely helpful in evening out the response and really giving a nice response across the entire basement seating area. I was tempted to send back the dual's since I was within my 30 days and go with the monster V3600 but these v1500's are really great for my setup. Also as an FYI the resonant frequency of an ironing board hanging from a basement door at the top of a stairwell is about 15hz or so. Holy cow these subs set that thing to rattle like you couldn't believe!

    The overall subs are amazingly solid also. They really show a great craftsmanship and are about as heavy duty as you could want. The standard finish is also actually very appealing. It's very understated and works great for my multi-use basement. I could see how many would like the more upscale wood finishes for a dedicated room but the default finish is much better than I expected. The performance pretty much puts all my earlier subs to shame. They are quite quiet and subtle when needed and then coming roaring to life when the material demands it.
