I use one in my carpeted upstairs theater. I feel it does a pretty good job. The upside is that it's SUPER easy to purchase, unpack, install and take back if you don't like it. :)

Dr. Hsu,

Drifter,

Just for reference in case you weren't aware... the Vandy 2WQ is pretty much geared towards a music-only environment. That particular sub lacks sufficient rumble for action movies and...
