Hello! I have a couple genelek 8030a. prompt a subwoofer for them to choose - to choose between f2 and 7050b. f2 from the speaker directed downwards - not whether it will be stronger than disturb the neighbors below, 7050b than the speaker sideways? I apologize for my English - Google translator helps))

Hello,

Low frequencies are omnidirectional which means that they will radiate at all directions no matter which way the woofer is directed. So there is no difference to neighbours between these subwoofers. Most important factor is the volume level. :)

Yes, I heard it, I just wanted to hear confirmation) scare stories when the neighbors below hum throughout the apartment - and in these stories with a subwoofer speaker down for some reason .. (if you say that the difference in the direction of the speaker is not - than stop choice?)

found this review: "Niin ja ne bassot: Sanotaanko, että täydellistä musiikkinautintoa estävät enää alakerran naapurit, potkua ja syvyyttä musiikista löytyy nyt ihan niin paljon kuin voisi tarvita.", but I do not understand the translation ((- the author writes about the neighbors below? help me please)

Hi,

The reviewer refers to neighbours below but it's equally valid point for neighbours next or above you. Bass frequencies are omnidirectional meaning they will radiate equally strong to all directions. It doesn't make any difference to which direction the woofer is pointing. Hopefully this is enough information.
