what is your set up?

I have always thought of them as not that resistant.

yeah i have had problems with my subs and not being able to really hear anything. People always ask me knowing that i have subs, if i even have my subs hooked up. I might have to buy bigger speakers but dont really want to spend on the money.

What do you have? Have you adjusted your phase to be in-line with your speakers?
