Sonus faber Gravis VI Subwoofer Review
September 21, 2019 § Leave a comment
“Still, though, taking that price into consideration, the Gravis VI lacks a few niceties that I think it deserves. For one thing, I would like to see a subwoofer of this caliber ship with its own measurement mic. Even a Dayton Audio EMM-6, low-priced as it is, would be an improvement over the mics built into smartphones, and would provide better calibration.
Unrelated to price, I also wish there were a bit more variety between the four EQ presets for the Gravis VI. While there are differences, they’re so subtle that you’ll likely hear more tonal shifts by leaning your head back and forth a foot or so. Only the Streaming Mode preset differs substantially from the other three, with a decent boost around 50 Hz and a steeper roll-off of frequencies below 30 Hz. I’m not really sure what that has to do with streaming, but there you have it.”
