he needs room for his CX15 mains.

Like basshead said I need room up front for my new CX-15T speakers, they're pretty big at 18" wide each. Sure I'll be giving up some output but trust me six sealed UXL-18's with 2000watts per driver won't be lacking much output

^^ you sold or going to sell your 228's? I assume the RA CX15 is better than JTR 228? What are you going to use for center? CX15 as well?

That's pretty impressive. I always wonder why people say they blow 20 amp breakers. I had one Triax and everything else, (TV, Oppo, amp, AVR cable box, Triax) all on 1 15 amp circuit and never had a problem myself. I have three dedicated 20 amp circuits now, but I am only using one at the moment as I am not using subs right now. I am only using 1 inuke6000dsp for my mains. I also just put in 200 amp service, I have plenty of expansion now.

I tripped a 20 amp breaker. It depends on the conditions. Try running lone survivor with a full bandwidth system and play the one minute 6hz loud scene with a LT boosted at 10dBs per octave and 3 dBs hot from reference. That would do it!

AVR-Yamaha A830
amps-5 Adcom 555 in 850 watt monoblock mode
sub amp-Sanway FP14K
LCR-Dual stacked BFM DR-250's
Surrounds- Dual stacked BFM W10's
subs-12 SI 18's ported 6hz.

Your a madman I know at our last GTG, we pushed things to the limit. We were something like +17 with 10 SI 18" and 3 Yorkville U215's. Pure madness, just madness.

I have 2 other triaxs each on their own 20 amp one so each triax may not be working that hard at reference.

I plan on moving all of my equip one day away from the screen to an area that has 6 dedicated 20 amp outlets. 2 of the triaxs will still share a 15 amp circuit, but moving the AVR and amps should lessen the load.

Now that I ported at 6hz I don't need that much power and I can run that scene 10 dBs over reference except it really starts moving the screen to much. I guess it makes it realistic as the chopper blades are moving you feel the wind and see the screen waving at you!

Dual T-18s ordered today! Won't be getting them until mid-December though.

They will be replacing my quad XS15s.

Very excited!!

I posted in the PSA sub thread but no one answered, so I'll try here. Do you guys know what the internal volume of the Triax cabinet is? Or Triax-18 I guess?
When I say that I mean how many cubic feet is it, thanks.

You should just message Tom and ask him. I doubt anyone else will know.

Shouldn't be too hard to figure out..

I would offer estimates on what to subtract (for driver, amp, and bracing) and what to add(for the wall lining) but that would just take all the fun out of it..

This may seem like a silly question but room acoustics is a relatively new thing to me and I was curious if a Triax or even an XS30se could help with room modes based on the idea that you have multiple drivers firing in different directions? I am just now getting into REW and experimenting with placement (which I am limited with), but I know I have some challenges between 40 and 80hz that I need to address. I have 2 sealed subs now with the traditional front firing design. I am not quite ready to throw in the towel just yet as I look at this as a learning opportunity but wanted to know if anybody else using these sub-woofers were able to overcome any room modes simply because of their design?

That would be a no, sorry. The only solution to smoothing room modes is properly placed, multiple subwoofers.

Thanks Alan, appreciate that... so what about those that claim better response by simply turning their sub a little to the left or right or even those that turn the sub and face the driver into a boundary with the amp plate facing into the room? I know I have read of some doing that to improve the response and this is why I was thinking a design like the Triax might be beneficial since it fires in multiple directions. I will experiment with mine to see if it really does make any difference but this is why I asked to begin with.

When I owned a single Triax no matter how I positioned it I couldn't get an even FR across the seating positions, my only alternative was dual subs and that fixed the many problems I had with my room and a single sub even with multiple drivers.

Well, yes...you can get a slightly better FR by changing the orientation of drivers/ports, but nothing comparing to additional subs.
