I may be heading over to bluesprings1 house on thursday to help him setup his JTR ensemble. Are you free?
Yeah, I've been curious about Craig John's setup, I really wish you could have made it to his place so you could give me your impressions! However I am currently obsessed with getting 4 21's in here. Man, if that happens we will be able to fully test out if ULF really make a difference. I could run a pretty crazy house curve with 4 of those I bet.
The thing with the ear plugs is that when we had our GTG over here I noticed that with the earplugs in I was digging the bass every bit as much as with the earplugs out. That's what gave me the idea, I know it's a little nuts and I wouldn't do it often but it was pretty fun to get assaulted by bass with music like that. Haven't cranked a system that loud for that long since college, of course back then there were no ear plugs in sight.
He sent me a text and yeah I'm going to try to make it over but I'm not for sure yet. I really think there is something wrong with the setup. However, like I said his room is huge and it's an L shape and I was recently reading about how L shapes are murder on bass so it may very well just be the room.
BTW, Looks like flatpacks aren't happening, the biggest size is 22x22 and he doesn't have plans right now to go any bigger. I've been advised that around 4.5 cu ft. with the clone amps is the right size so I'm thinking 25x25x18 deep, that way I can have them as far back in the corner as possible. I think 25 inch front dimensions will look good, that's 2 inches on each side of the driver and that's exactly how the sealed cap is, it is 22x22.
25x25x18 is crazy small, to give you an idea of how big that is if you turn the Submersive sideways so that the drivers are facing left and right the dimensions are 24 wide, 25 tall, 17.5 deep pretty much the exact dimensions I'm thinking of using!! I can't believe how small that is!
