For informational purposes I will report the equipment being used for this review. Many of you know it, but for those of you that don't, here goes... Pioneer Elite VSX-45TX 7.1 channel 100WPC reciever. Pioneer Elite DV45A multi-format DVD player. It is capable of all forms of multi-channel music, stereo audio, and DVD playback. Custom Adire KIT81 mains and the Adire KIT81 center channel, again, custom. Custom Adire KIT51s surrounds Pioneer SD533HD5 Widescreen HDTV RPTV Above are a couple pics of my newest project, "Dualie". Dual Koda 10s, 500 watts, in a few feet sealed, lots o' 'fil . I wrapped it in Ribbon Mahogany, with a slight curly texture... a very pretty wood. For protection I used a few coats of tung oil. The face of the unit is in a satin black, about 6 coats worth (and another 4 of primer) and adorned with a black grille. I wanted the unit to be less obtrusive while viewing a film then the mains I built earlier this year. Spike feet couple the unit to the floor. I wanted XBL2 in the house, but I was not interested in the massive Tumult. I was concerned it would overpower the rest of the room. I liked the Koda, without a doubt, and I figured I would give it a shot in the home. The 2 perform admirably. Massive extention and output made the Rava look like a rookie. The Rava has always been a solid performer, with amazing output, but the dual Kodas are crushing. With the auto set-up on the Elite, the subwoofer overall output was boosted +3.5dBs with the Rava to reach referance at 0 on the volume indicator, with a moderate boost to the lower 30Hz frequency on the EQ of +1dB. In comparison, with the dual Kodas the auto setup set itself at, and this is not a misprint, -5.5 Db, with a ruler flat EQ. The location, angle, everything the same. The unit takes up a bit more than twice as much overall space, but the footprint is almost the same. I say almost, because there is an additional 1.5 inches of depth added to the Dualie. But it is a serious presance in the room, simply amazing. So far I have viewed LOTR The Fellowship of the Ring. In the opening battle sequence where Isildor cuts off Sauron's hand, and the shockwave wipes out all the Orcs, the room absolutely explodes the roll starts out somewhat high, then goes extremely deep. The room erupts into this silent mass of moving air, all feeling with no distortion or coloration present. You feel it in your gut... Walls rattle. Then the helmet of Sauron hits the ground and the Dualie again displays its accuracy by quickly and powerfully reverting back to an audible masterpiece, rather then the silent explosion just a few seconds before. Transitions and speed are amazing, and the depth and output are beyond what I ever expected. Thus far I have stuck with film, but the apparent TR was very nice. I will take some time to listen to multi-channel music this weekend (I do not listen to my music with my subs on, unless it was recorded multi-channel, I hate the imaging issues it presents) and report on it's SQ then. Right now I am simply stunned.
