Why?
I am not sure I can find a proper place for 345 as it is much bigger than 126. And I do not think I need as much capacity as it can provide. Even 126 has more than enough power for my room. I have never felt that 126 sound weak. 126 is very fast and musical sub. I do not watch movies frequently - just about one in a week. And I am happy with 126 at all.
226 has the same size as 126. And I am curious does it produce better (may be deeper) bass than 126 because of it's servo control amp.
The other one thing is that my 126 plays all the frequencies under 85 Hz. I am not sure that 345 can do the same. As it has bigger driver (300mm) I am afraid it will not be capable to produce as clean and fast mid-bass (at the 50-85 Hz range) as 126 do.
By the way Klimax 320A by themselves have a really deep and powerful bass, but because of my room acoustics I can not hear well all the low frequencies that they produce (in the 30-80 Hz range) from the listening place. That is why I need a sub which support 320A at the low-frequency range.
126 cope with this task really well. If 226 or 345 will do this task better it is great.
