NHT SuperZero 2.1

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Anyone have experience with these? A little pricey, but I know NHT makes a great loudspeaker (and an even better subwoofer) It's going to be leaps and bounds better than the Logitech Z2300's that are currently making my ears scream for mercy.

Thoughts? Buy or RUN AWAY!!!

Run away. The sub is only 8" with a -3db of 37hz and is made out of rather thin MDF.

For a nearfield computer music system, it'd be fine...of course, you can always just buy the speakers and buy a more capable sub. I'd prefer to go with the absolute zeros at least and a more powerful sub, but it all depends on how much you are wanting to spend.

Well, it would be utilized in nearfield and it (@$400) is really the limit to my budget, so I may go with it. I have no doubt it will be music to a beginners ears...especially after the muddy punishment of the z2300s. (and I'm sure my soundcard will thank me)

I'm not a fan of excessive boom...unfortunately I didn't realize how boomy the z's sub was at purchase. I'm hopeful the nht's play well with eax5.

You realize those speakers require amplification though, right? You need to have an amp or receiver.

Under-built cabinets will lead to resonance and muddy bass. An 8" sub is not going to "deliver true high-end deep bass performance." While almost anything is better than Logitech, aim for a 10" sub instead.

He doesn't need "true high end deep bass" for a decent music system, and as long as his room isn't huge, this will be fine. Room gain will help that sub get a little deeper which is perfectly fine for music. Sure it's a little thin - ~.6" or so but it's not a heavy duty sub built for high spl. I use an orb audio 8" sub with my rc-10s for music in my ~2350 cu ft bedroom and it's perfectly fine provided I don't try to listen too loudly.

Obviously there are better subs available, but generally at a higher price point - however, for the price of the NHT, I'd highly recommend an eD A3S-250, HSU STF-2, or eD A2-250...but since he's getting a package deal with the speakers and subs it comes out cheaper his way.

"true high-end deep bass performance" is what the description promises though, which it won't deliver. Sub enclosures should be rock solid regardless of what the spl of the woofer is. Staying within the OP's budget, even the HSU STF-1 would be better because of the beefier cabinet. In combination with a pair of bookshelves like the PSB Alpha B1 it would be much better for the price.

It's a package deal I would be getting for $349+tax/shipping came out to just under $400.

I understand they require an amp, which is built into the sub and has speaker terminals (left/right channel out) along with rca in.

It's not a very large room...12x12 with hardwood floors, and the sub would be situated under my corner desk (placing the sub right in the corner of my room)

The amp in the sub is for the sub only. It will not power anything else. The speaker level connections are there for those who don't have a subwoofer out on their receiver or who want to use the sub's crossover for some reason.
