On behalf of Navin:

He meant, acoustically isolate the sub. Physically, boxwise.

hello sam,
right now 2 speakers and 1 sub is in 1 large box and installed in 3 different compartments of the same box.
1. should i put 2 speakers in 1 box and the sub in a different box? wont it feel as if bass is pounding from one corner of the boot?
2. or, should i get 3 different boxes and arrange the woofer's box in-between the 2 speaker boxes? will it sound better in this config or the 1st config?

regards,
anuj

Then it's ok - just make sure
1) the 3 compartments are properly sealed from each other.
2) Lower the gain on your 222, connect only the speakers to it and get a decent amp for the subwoofer.
3) Love your parents and be faithful to your woman (And if you cant be faithful, try really hard)

Use 222 for the fronts and one for the rears. As navin suggested, buy a JBL CS60.2 for the subwoofer. Bridge it and connect it in LPF mode to the sub. Buss. Ho Gaya.

I have heard the 60.2 bridged into one 12" woofer - it makes phenomenal VFM.

hi navin,

isn't the 502 another 2 channel amp from sony. i got it fitted in my bro's zen. i feel its just a marginally better product than the 222. confusion is reigning supreme herein navin, so please clarify.

i think 502 is just rated at 28w pmpo above the 222. does it really make a difference then?

regards

I've heard about the 502 and used the 504. the 504 is very grainy but ok for sub duties as it can swing volts into low impedances. I expect the 502 to be a 2 ch. version of the 504. However if you are in doubt try the JBL 60.2 albeit at a higher price.

I have not compared the 222 to the 502 or 504 so cant say for sure. However there are many amps that while being ok running into 4 ohms run out of steam when asked to manage a 2 ohm load.

A 2 ch. amp when brdiged sees a 4 ohm speaker as it would 2 ohm speakers if it was used a stereo amp.

Watt ratings of most amps are very optimistic. I would test the 502 on the grounds that if it does not swing enough volts (is not loud enough) you can upgrade to the 60.2 and if that is not enough the 300.1! :-)
