Share which subwoofer you like with Martin Logan Aeon
I was looking for a subwoofer to complement my ML Aeons. Was wondering what people's experience and choices were. Please share your subwoofer pick, what you liked or disliked. Will be thrilled to hear if anyone did some A/B auditions.
I would stick with a ML sub. I'm a big fan of their subs. The Grotto I and higher are servo controlled and are great subs. They are made to keep up with ML speakers. Very tight, fast and musical bass.
I also like REL and and the Velodyne Digital Drive subs which come with a remote control and equalizer and spectrum analyzer. The Velo's are non ported and are fast and tight and I believe that they are servo controlled as well.
I few months ago I looked at all these brands as I was going to buy a new sub, but my wife decided that she wanted to redo some bathrooms in the house. Till next year!
Any way, they are all good subs. REL subs prefer to be hooked up to the speaker out on your amp for the best sound but then you lose bass management. They can be hooked up to the line out though.
