Hi All,

Is there any limitation to Orientation of the Contrabass? Not looking to place it woofers facing up and down, but will it be okay to place it on one it's other 3 sides or is there a reason not to? I have it standing with the 15" at the top and 18"PR at the bottom. Not sure what it's limitations are if any.
Thank you,

Chris

No limits to placement other than keeping the 18" PRs vertical (ie not up or down firing). Side or upside down placement is fine.

Thank you Mark I placed them on their side coupling them with scanspeak plug facing up. I noticed a nice room gain doing so and turned the amp down some.
Would you be able to help me find any backup motor(s) for these Contrabass? Model numbers and Manufacture if possible. I keep reading past post about Ebay having them once in awhile but don't know what to look for as the seller doesn't post them as working with the Contrabass subwoofers and there isn't any mention of part or model numbers in the posts I've read.
I would think the foam would rot before the motor goes out which I think would be a simple fix with matching up the foam measurement with other re-foam kits out there. Also would it be a problem going with rubber surrounds if I do have to replace the surrounds?
Thank you for your time,

Chris
