Subwoofer for small room to complement wall speakers

Hi all, I am currently remodelling my room and am now using my former rear speakers as fronts. They are the AP On-Wall 2. I am very happy with the speakers as they play very fine and clean. But they lack power in the lower range.

I will use the LS for my PC setup and music streaming. Sometimes I will also use a TV, which I plan to attach to a rolling TV stand.

My focus is on music and I want the subwoofer to complement the speakers perfectly so that the sound is not distorted.I was thinking of a 1961 1s or 1723 1s in my room. Which one would you recommend?

Thanks in advance!

This is my room:

The 1723 arrived on Friday and I have already been able to listen to some music and watch 1-2 series. The subwoofer helps immensely, even with music. Especially with genres like pop etc. – I just sometimes have the feeling that the overall sound image is a little less clean than without the sub. But I’ll just have to try it out a bit more. I chose EQ 3 and it fits well with the existing room.

At higher volumes it is really much more impressive than at normal – quiet levels. I should really look into it:

“But I do not think they have loudness functions. But you could set a custom EQ for listening at low volumes.”

My 1120 arrived today and I am in the process of connecting and setting up everything.I have a Y-cable for connecting a subwoofer.

I connect two cables to the sub and one to the amplifier. Is that right or do I do 1 & 1?

I am supposed to enter the “amplifier delay” of the 1723 1S in the Lyngdorf. Where do I find this?In the Lyngdorf I have selected the EQ neutral, then the EQ 3 of the 1723 should still apply or?

Sorry for the late reply.

You do not need a Y-cable, a mono RCA is all you need. If you already have the Y-cable just make sure you select both inputs on the subwoofer.

When calibrating the Lyngdorf you can enter 8ms of the DSP delay of the subwoofer and set the subwoofer to EQ1 for the lowest extension. Should you have issues with too much low bass you can set it to EQ2 or EQ3. That is totally individual of the Lyngdorf DSP setting.

Hi Lukas, thanks for your help. I can now also make these settings in the Arendal app. Time delay and phase.

With the Lyngdorf I can enter the sub distance and amp delay. Then I change it in the Lyngdorf and don’t change anything in the Arendal app or?
