Kevin: Yes, sub distances can be set independently. I have the TN1220 lying on its side behind my couch and the VTF in a near-corner of my listening/viewing space. At the moment the Mid-Bass Module...

I don't offhand know what the crossover points are for RAAL tower. The 70-20 and the 70-10 variant that Dave uses for the Sierra-2 are substantially different in where they cross over, and of course...

My (assuming you're looking in my direction) interest in the towers isn't so much for bass response as it is for midrange articulation and curiosity over the RAAL 70-20 amphorus core ribbon employed...

One of these days I'm probably going to break down and acquire an XSP-1, though the DC-1 going direct into an amplifier sounds very clean and dynamic bt itself, and since I have built-in low and...

Yes, the dual MBM-12 setup is tempting, and if I end up keeping the Sierra-2s I may add one. Right now, the single module is placed in the nearfield directly behind my listening position (as per...

Sub to augment existing TN1220/500-watt amp?

Greetings everyone. I'm looking for a subwoofer to join my existing TN1220 and 500-watt amp. Ideally I'd use another TN1220, but since these are almost impossible to come by, would a "conventional"...

Thanks, Kevin. In the meantime I've ordered a pair of HB-1 Mk2s, and now plan on acquiring a Peachtree Decco65 to drive them, in a home-office setup. My current Spica TC-50s have been in constant use...

Well, I moved the sub and amp to another location/system, and all is now well. Must have been some odd interaction. Thanks so much for your help!

I can't quite tell if you know this already, but Hsu specifically states (in the TN1220 manual) that the sub is _not_ shielded and thus shouldn't be placed too close to a video monitor. Whether your...
