What do you think about size?
I could do 34" wide (or tall) x 22.5-24" deep and 26-28" tall (or wide).
What do you think about tuning?
Captivator 1400 tuned to 17hz and the 4000 is tuned to 10hz.
The lower the tuning than the less output. I'm thinking about splitting the difference and tune it to 14hz.
In terms of depth 24" seems OK but I can really go up to 26" (as I've learned from the VTF-15H MK2). The 30.9" depth of the PB16-Ultra is really turning me off because of my room limitations and placement issues. Width-wise I can go up to 30". Tall-wise I can go as high as the ceiling so I'd rather see it go tall than wide. Right now my subwoofers are directly to the left and right of my tv stand. My only concern is what am I going to do if I one day buy a huge display (75"+) and it no longer can fit because I have huge subwoofers in the way. When I was thinking about this while planning to buy a pair of Cap 1400s my solution was going to be to just lay them on their sides (hence my 30" width limit). If I win the lottery and buy a bigger house all of that goes out the window and I'm going directly to quad Cap 4000s with some Cap 2400s sprinkled in there for giggles.
14Hz sounds like a good tuning point. That's what the PB16-Ultra is tuned at right?
As far as price point I'm going to take a wild stab in the dark and say $2499.
Glad I waited. Can't wait to see what you come up with.
BTW, what was the specs of the original Captivator 2400? I'm not too familiar with it.
