Re: Is speaker frq. response of 49Hz good enough?

Morning E.W.
"But why on earth does it matter if you achieve this with two large boxes or two smaller boxes and one larger one?"

I actually think it does matter quite a bit?

I am sure Hugh or another has covered this before but a single subwoofer is always a compromise. The general advice is I seem to remember that getting what LF you can from the monitors is better and spend the money there rather than a sub if possible and the smaller the room the less useful a sub becomes.

There is, as I understand things a very strong case for TWO subs to augment smaller speakers and these should be placed as near to them as possible.

A refresher article perhaps SoS?
