On The Bench

Tests were made with Behringer EMC8000 that was calibrated using a reference mic, an emu 0404 USB sound card, and RoomWizardEQ.

4400LR

Rated at 80Hz – 20kHz ±3dB, the response curve for the 4400LR's is not that far off in Figure 1. the extra 1-2 dB dips and peaks are most likely room related. My Home Theater room does have bass traps and acoustic panels, but it is not an anechoic chamber.

4400C

Similar results with the 4400C in Figure 2 as with the LR. closer to +- 4dB in my room.

444SB

In Figure 3 the 444SB has a pretty smooth bass curve, but does not reach the earth shattering low notes very well. I personally love subs that go below 20Hz, that add a lot to the feel of the sound.
