Subwoofers and electrostatic speakers
Does PBK provide adjustment of anything other than frequency response? Manual adjustments? Multiple memory presets?

Try asking about a replacement part like a footer, screen, or a tweeter. An estimate on a factory rebuild? Something that means business to them.

My Eidolon’s included a forty-five page hard bound manual personally signed by the five people involved with their manufacture.       
Subwoofer Advice & Therapy :)
@norust       The other tradeoffs I know exist are in regards to the position of the sub and the size of my listening room. I only have one front corner location (with some room between the back and side wall).  Welcome to the Gon and more impo... 
Subwoofers and electrostatic speakers
@drbond    Yes, I could try numerous locations for the subwoofers, but at 140 lb each, I really don‘t want to move them much. My room is also very irregular, with an open side wall into the house, which apparently makes it easier to find a decent... 
Subwoofers and electrostatic speakers
You have a spectacular system. I’ve found there are a number of LP’s that simply sound fine without my subs help. The digital releases of those same recordings sound better with the subs on. Another confirmation that high pass filtering is not pr... 
What speaker could safely be ordered without hearing it first?
@mtbiker29   This has happened to many of us. When one with no experience admires a high performance something and reads a litany of positive accolades by users, not knowing they too are mostly first time fan boy users with little or no experienc... 
The perfect satellite/subwoofer system ...
Being a hack with only a pair of dated Mackie powered PA speakers as my only active speaker reference, any taking of wind is out. I do believe a much finer level of subwoofer integration has been easily obtainable for well over a decade. Like mos... 
Sweet spot in Avalon product line
Despite the striking resemblance between Avalon's current Precision Monitor 4 and the Eidolon a great many changes may have been developed. The Eidolon never impressed me at shows or stores, and there was their price. I waited until I could affor... 
Bookshelf Speakers Sitting On Dual Subs?
+1 fuzz erik bayl jjss onhy... The Elac DSP might allow you to roll the subs frequency response off beginning in the low 40Hz, continue until your down by -6dB in the low 30Hz. The Elac should now act like a -6dB sub-bass speaker. By lowering the... 
Subs with room correction DSP?
@macg19 No subwoofer crawl or gimmicky software with "special" mics required. If you’re using a -6dB sub-bass speaker/s they roll off around 40Hz and simply do not output enough subsonic frequency to excite most rooms standing waves. I’m guess... 
Subs with room correction DSP?
There’s the Velodyne Acoustics DD Plus. It requires a subwoofer crawl to identify room locations. Connections to either a TV or a laptop to monitor adjustments. It’s supplied with a calibrated mic positioned at the listening position and connected... 
Fathom subwoofers?
Despite your domestic considerations you should know the rooms standing wave bass mode locations by conducting the subwoofer crawl using your SB3000. The loudest modes are where your subwoofers should be or fairly close to. Using DSP to remedy a r... 
Fathom subwoofers?
What do you feel is missing with your current low frequency setup? How did you determine your subwoofer's positions?  
Will I benefit from upgrading REL subwoofer pair
@hilde45 asked.   Why REL? Other subs have variable phase, which can prove critical to integration.  ?
