Seriously though, wondering why you would do this. Most people think 99% of effective bass is realized by the mid to low teens at best, and you are pretty solid into the low teens at least aren't you?
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.

I thought the movie industries trend has been towards filtering the bass on Blu-ray releases?

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..
