Usually only one amp is needed for buttkickers unless you have a lot of them. I.E. multiples can usually be driven off a single channel depending on power handling and how powerful the amp is. I suppose you could just use the second sub output from the AVR, but splitting a connection would work as well as it won't alter the voltage.

I couldn't measure the diagonal directly but I measured the length along the ground and the height based on where I could see it coming down. 120"x55" which, using a little Pythagorean, gives me a 132" screen max. I'd likely wanna go a bit smaller if/when I do it.
In-ceiling powered models can get pricey (thousands for a good one) and then when you pair it with a good projector you will likely spend $3 to $4K on the video alone so just realize that it's not an economical approach.

I am modifying my old draper using a flush ceiling mount kit which will likely cost me about $500 to $1000 for the changes. There is a 120" model similar to it on eBay for $500 but the seller has not stated if the material is acoustically transparent or not so I have not bid on it myself... yet.

Anybody else love the Salk Version of the F15?
$1695

We have built many custom subwoofers over the years for all kinds of applications. But since Rythmik introduced their Direct Servo Technology, we've pretty much limited subwoofer production to Rythmik-based designs. They are simply too good.
It takes a lot of air movement to generate deep bass. And there is just as much energy coming off the rear of the subwoofer cone as there is initiated by the front of the cone. The result is a tremendous amount of energy being directed back into the subwoofer cabinet. This energy can easily create cabinet resonances and can cloud the clarity of the bass response.
We address cabinet resonance in two ways. First, with our Rythmik 15" builds, we use 1 1/2" walls rather than the standard 3/4" walls. This added mass lowers cabinet resonances to extremely low levels. We also add very substantial bracing to further reduce the chances of cabinet wall resonances. The result is extremely clean, precise and musical deep bass.
When set up properly, the sub should never call attention to itself. But your system will play significantly deeper than before and the sound will be very clean, accurate and musical...which is how it should be.
Also F12 $1295

I'm personally not a fan of this. I don't think it looks bad just not my personal style. However, how does one get Rythmik Sub with a custom box made?!

Salk has many different wood finishes to choose from.

The 12" model is $1295 with standard finish(**); custom finishes go up from there. The 15" model starts at $1695. Jim uses heavier cabinets with more bracing than standard Rythmik so he does more than just fancy finishes but the guts are the same.

From Salk website: ** Standard finishes include curly maple, curly cherry, curly walnut, oak, straight mahogany and satin black. Wood veneers can also be dyed. So, for example, you can have deep rose-red curly cherry or electric blue curly maple. See gallery for examples.

I was going to pull weights to compare but at the moment Rythmik's website is not accessible to me (appears to be down).

If you want a Salk version, order from Jim Salk: http://www.salksound.com/ He makes some great speakers, too!

Different strokes...

I'm a fan of just about everything Salk does, his end products are only limited by your imagination and wallet. Having said that, my Rythmiks are black oak as I got my first one long before Salk started making custom Rythmiks.

Yeah don't get me wrong, I think it looks beautifully done, and very professional. Just that specific finish not in line with my personal tastes.

One of these days, I think it would be fun to play with some cheap, generic ones:
https://www.parts-express.com/dayton...watts--295-244

I've read that the ideal signal to send to tactile transducers is bass without room EQ, ideally with a custom tuned HPF & LPF. I've only experienced stuff like this that was pretty gimmicky and distracting, but many enthusiasts around here have said that it's possible to tune them to feel natural and not distracting - just enhanced impact and immersion - similar to ULF.

Many have said that Crowsons are superior to the Buttkicker style transducers, but they are more expensive.

5 star buy has it for 1249.00 also. Seems like a no brained if considering the 6010. 2 more amp channels for 150.00 more.

Patience. Don't do it yet. You are about a month away from the SR6011 with nine-channel amplifier built in coming out. I'm pretty sure you could get that for a similar price. If you are open to 7 channel amplifier receivers like the SR6010 you just saw get the Denon AVR-X3300W. That is easily under $900 from two vendors here in AVS forums.

Ah yeah, this was before my coffee this morning....I need a 9.2 ch. I realized this was 7.2 - was thinking it was the SR7010...I'll be patient lol. No morning purchases.

Give JDsmoothie at AVS a call at 585-645-1006. You might be surprised, but they can usually match or beat the pricing on AVRs from almost anywhere. Plus, he can answer any questions you have and then some.
