I am guessing the FV18HP will be 4-5db more powerful then the FV15HP. The increase in displacement is going to be worth 2-3db and the increase in amp power is going to net 2-2.5db. So I am willing to bet the FV18 will be almost twice as powerful as the PB13 through most of the FR.

Is this what the FV18 will use?

Nope, that's for the FV25HP.

You could be right or real close with your guesstimate.

Here two preview pictures of H600XLR3 vs HX2000XLR3. I will update them with better resolution pictures very soon.





The two caps are 22,000uF/100V. We are also changing the Freq. from 14/20/28 to 12/14/18 to offer a more realistic usability.

Are those frequency changes only for the FV25?

Yes, for now. Brian will explain later the why behind this small change.

So if fv18hp use 1000w servo amp means equal to 1400w-1500w class d/ice power amp?

Took the day off to setup and EQ the FV15HP. Hopefully it'll be arriving today as per UPS tracking! Although I'm starting to wonder if it's actually going to come today or not. I would have expected it would be out for delivery by now.

Does anyone know if the LV12R comes with 1 skateboard or 2? Just want to make sure I'm boxing it up how it came. So far I've got it in there like this.

Correct, it is just the 1.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

Thanks. Next question before I begin REW. is this the correct place for LFE?

Yes, and should you need the extra 6dB of input gain after using the MiniDSP 2x4 HD, you can use both LFE inputs.

@Rythmik , when do you plan on sending an FV18 to data-bass for testing? FV15HP has held the top spot for ported 15" subs for a long time. Would love to see how the 18" stacks up, especially since one of the most highly regarded 18" ported subs has been tested and holds the uncontested top spot.

Even with the output of 2Vrms on the HD version?

Who is the current top performer for the ported 18?

Posting my REW results over in that thread so as not to take over this one. You can see the most recent post I just made over there by clicking here. Short story is that I placed the FV15HP where the LV12R used to be but faced the ports towards the MLP as there really isn't any other way to put this one without it looking awful in that position. I won't comment on the actual performance/sound/etc yet since all im doing is running sweeps, but I can tell you where I have it right now, i have major dips at 30hz and 50hz that I don't think PEQ is going to help. Anyone have any creative options? Was considering trying it out in the corner where the LV12R originally used to sit. Maybe this one will have better response over there? Oh and I'll post just this 1 REQ FR here.

Two words: Subwoofer crawl. Then REW.. Those nulls are due to room mode and there is no PEQ or DSP that can fix that.

Was afraid of this. Especially with my options being so limited due to the fact that it's in the living room. May try it in the front left corner and see how it goes.
