    Hello Guglielmo,

    As a rule of thumb, toeing-in the speakers in that way that the thought lines which run from the front baffles of both speakers in direction of the listener cross themselves 1 m behind the listener, gives a good result for most cases.

    Hello Marc,

    Most Subwoofers are powered in hometheater. The reason they are powered is to alleviate the load on main amplifier to power the subwoofer. In general, more power is required to produce bass frequencies. So dedicating an amplifier to the subwoofer gives you better bass.

    My go to subwoofer is the Sub3010, https://www.elac.com/product/sub3010/?r=us
    It’s a 10″ subwoofer with a passive radiator, 200watts rms /400watt peak Bash amplifier, and room correction.
    The passive radiator function frequency wise similarly to a port, but with out the chuffing and port noise.
    The Bash amp gives a class AB sound, with an efficiency of class D amps.
    The room correction makes placement easier.
    It’s described as a very fast subwoofer which is great for music.

    If you want or need an upgrade we offer the Sub3030, https://www.elac.com/product/debut-2-0-sub3030/?r=us
    It has a very similar design except it has 12″ woofer, 500 Watts RMS /1000 Watts peak

    Hello Negatron,

    1. Unfortunately the Discovery cannot play DSD/DSF files.

    2. You don’t need a Roon subscription to run the Discovery. The Discovery runs a version of Roon called Roon Essentials. As far as any other costs, a subscription to Tidal is not a requirement be is certainly a cool feature.

    3. Discovery runs a version of Roon called Roon Essentials and it comes with Roon with no additional fees. Because it’s a “light” or an “Essentials” version of Roon, there a few differences, but in my opinion these are worth the savings. Roon Essential is not capable of DSD audio or MQA, there is a 30,000 Track limit(hardware limit), there are a few differences in categorizing classical music, and not compatible with Chromecast or Qobuz. Features may be added and there are always hopes for more features. I personally use the device at home and none of those missing features take away from the amazing experience.

    Hello Keith,

    It has not officially been anounced, but our team is certainly working on it. With the latest firmware the option is available with bugs.

    Hello Powermang,

    Yes you can use it to find the best placement. Basically, you want to place the sub woofer so that there is minimum difference between the near field and far field measurement.

    That’s very usual. I’m glad you got it working though.

    Hello MrFranc,

    We noticed at absurdly loud volumes with certain frequencies with auto eq on the subwoofer may distort, but with auto eq off the unit did not distort. Corrections were made to fix this bug.

    Hello Jan,

    In terms of interaction with the Audyssey or any calibrations system(except the EA1010EQ-G) it is recommended that you run the Subwoofer Auto Eq First. Then run the Audyssey. The subwoofer will properly integrate the subwoofer into the room and the Audyssey will just apply small refinements in details.

    The Various modes are present DSP settings.

    Flat – gives you a flat response.

    Music – gives a shelf toward the end in order to simulate room gain.

    Movie – puts a small bump in the 50hz region for more impact.

    Night – turns it all down to not disturb neighbors.

    I guess we are knobheads, because soldering will void warranty.
