What’s Loud Enough?
We like subwoofers to produce
at least 96dB continuous
(100dB for high-impact theaters)
throughout their range at the
listening position.
For background music systems,
performance to 85dB is
appropriate.

Determining Room Volume
Determining Output
Room volume is Width x Length x Height of the
primary listening room, plus a portion of the
volume of any rooms that are connected. When
placing a subwoofer in position 1, add 25% of the
volume of Room B. In position 2, add 50%. In
position 3 add 100% of room B.
Corner Loaded SPL
Placing the SPK-OSUB low in a corner will yield the
greatest bass output. Adding a second Sub adds 3
to 6dB of output, depending upon how close the
subwoofers are to each other. The chart assumes
the first subwoofer is placed in the corner, and the
second is alongside a side wall.
