As you can see on the post I have a 4000 cubic ft room.  This also has a large opening in the back off the room.

 

I will be using 3 JTR 228's or two Sierra 2 towers and a Horizon center channel. May even go for  2 diy speakers the 12 in tempest for the fronts and the Alchemy for the center.

 

This dosn't have to be a vendor type of Sub but I have few tools to work with for DIY.

Are you including the room(s) beyond the large opening in your "4000 cu. ft." calculation?

No that area is speperat.

Budget wise i think i can swing the FV15hp I called and they said that should be enogh with out working the sub to hard.

I am retuning my speakers until i pay off the sub. I havnt bouht it yet but I would need to spend more for the Mary sub  after buying the amp  driver and all probly.

I wanted to do DIY for a sub but if i get the table saw, router and so on I would be spening a good bit more I belive.

Quick question if I used a Mini DPS would a Ipad or a Mac pro work. I dont have a lap top so if a Ipad would work, that would cut back some of the cost, if a Mini DSP would help much with just I Sub

It is not "separate" to your sub....you need to include it into your cubic foot calculations. If you are telling Rythmik that your room is only 4000 cubic feet and they are making recommendations based off that number, those recommendations are not going to be accurate.

Not sure if the MiniDSP plugins will run on a Mac. You should contact support.

You will need some way to measure your room (REW + mic) before you will be able to use the MiniDSP.
