I seem to get all the volume I want with a pair of Meta and a single SB2000 crossed over at 100 HZ with LR 24 db octave on both high and low pass. I do have a small room. The main issue is finding and damping all the stuff rattling in the room with the sub.Looking forward to seeing and hearing the R Meta in 2023!
I also think people don't talk enough about vertical directivity with the Metas which is virtually identical to its already sterling horizontal directivity. The Uni-Q controls floor and ceiling reflections better than any other speaker out there, bar none. I think that takes on added import when you are playing your system is a room with 8' ceilings like me, especially when the room is only 12' x 12'.
