Official Deep Sea Sound Thread

Since I have been enjoying these subs in my room for several months now and that the company is currently showing at Axpona, I thought it was time for an official thread.

The website should be live soon and David will chime in on availability.

Previously I had a total of 8 - SI18's in my room and they were in 4 DO cabinets.
Now I have dual 24's up front and the performance is AMAZING...

This picture shows the grills. The LCR's are Seaton Catalyst 12's...

SWEET!! I can see grown men drooling and small children cowering in the corner when those bad boys get going.

Any thought to putting dual 24's in the back of your room, for a nice quad setup?

Benq W1080ST DLP 3D Projector
Sony BDP-S5200 3D Blu-ray Player
Denon X4000 Receiver
Pioneer SP-FS52 Tower Speaker x 4
Pioneer SP-C22 Center Channel Speaker
PSA XS15se Subwoofer x 4

I wouldn't do it for a couple of reasons.

1. The way my room is laid out(I have two rows of seats), I simply don't have the room for them.

BUT, most importantly,

2. In my room, having dual 24's up front fill the room up MUCH more than my previous sub setup. These are quite impressive in how well they fill the room up..

The dimensions of those are:
37"H x 28" w x 22"D

He made those to fit my space and I don't know what the exact dimensions will be. My guess is, he will have a couple options.

Thanks for sharing--the cabinet isn't as large as I thought it would be!

They're going to be way outside my budget at the moment; but, I'm still super excited to learn more about these beasts!

Here are some pictures I managed to get today at AXPONA. I am not a good photographer, and these pictures do not do justice to how nice these subs really look, so don't judge the finish of the subs by my photos. Hopefully the Deep Sea Sound (love that name!) website will get some good pics of these:





The dude at the end is David Gage, who runs Deep Sea Sound, a cool and easy-going guy. Nick from Stereo Integrity (he makes the driver) was there, and he was also a friendly and relaxed guy to talk with, although he was not in room when I was getting these pics. The speakers were a JTR model which used 12" woofers, but I can't recall the model name. The sub under it is a mid bass module using a JBL 2225 woofer- nice! The subwoofer on the left side is the Mariana 24SC, which has a 28" x 28" x 27" cabinet. The right side one is the Mariana 24SR, which is shallower but taller at 28" x 37.7" x 21.3". They are both the same except for the cabinet dimensions. The have a 4 kW (continuous, not peak) SpeakerPower plate amp.

The bass sound was amazing in quantity and excellent in quality. We played the pods rising scene from War of the Worlds, and the bass was crunchy and articulate, not a muddy rumble like how some other systems render that scene. And of course, the bass was FELT, not just heard. We couldn't play it too loud as there was a loudness limit at the audio show, but I have a feeling Dave and Nick might just have slightly exceeded that limit, just a little bit. But the two 24" subs completely owned in that small hotel room, it created an absolutely gigantic sound. Words can not do justice to the experience, it is truly epic. These subs were producing monster bass, but the cones were hardly moving at all- it was a totally effortless sound. It is terrifying to think what these subs could do without the social restraints of being exhibited in an high-end audiophile convention.

These subs are a bit pricey at $4k each, but considering the sheer amount of air displacement on tap, they are a bargain when looked at from the perspective of dollar per dB. For sealed subs it would be rivaled only by the JTR S2 and Funk 18.2 as far as displacement goes, at least if I have done my math right. Dave mentioned using one as an endtable, which has to be a staggering experience. This really would be the ultimate end-table subwoofer.

Well stated and great pictures!

The 24SR is the same one I have....

I love having dual 24's in my setup. David always gives me a hard time because I don't push mine as much as he would like me to do so....but I don't think the house could take it.

Dave and Nick were extremely friendly and very helpful. The 24" subs they had at axpona sounded beautiful! These subs put out extreme bass! They were one of my favorites at the axpona show!

I'm glad David was there for the photo shoot. Thanks for the initial impressions. We are going to change things up a bit tomorrow and only run one subwoofer like we did for Friday. Two 24's in that small of a room is totally overkill and doesn't show what David's Deep Sea Sound suboofer was built/designed for. At the loud(er) level with both subs running today we saw maybe 0.5" of travel out of one sub.

Here are some pictures I took today:

Just a thought:

I know there are grills for the subs, but a lot of people like to run their subs without them. A trim ring to cover all of the screw heads and mounting flange would improve the appearance drastically. They really detract from the aesthetics of the subs. It would give the subs a much more polished, high end appearance.

At a bare minimum, at least use black screws/bolts, so they blend better.

Other than that, I imagine they are very impressive at full tilt!

ShadyJ - it was great meeting and talking with you! I didn't realize you were an AVSer until your post but it doesn't surprise me; everyone I've met via AVS has been great. Definitely appreciate your feedback and enthusiasm for my new subwoofers. It has been too long in getting here as there has been much more work than I expected in starting a business. Definitely have respect for Jeff of JTR, Mark of Seaton, Jeremy of Reaction, and I'm sure many more I don't know about for their ability to run successful small businesses. And thanks for the write up and pictures. Great stuff and as tired as I have been, you guys really pumped me up...I'm humbled.

PS - You left your demo disc in the player. PM me your address and I'll send it to you.

Guys, thank you so much for the congratulations and support. I haven't had much sleep preparing for Axpona and then exhibiting but the energy I received from the people at the show and these posts has been phenomenal. Thanks so much!

And oh yeah, the initial crack at the website should be operational as soon as the old interwebs propagate the domain name server changes. So keep checking as it should be live soon. More pages, better pictures, and online ordering will be added over the next few weeks.

EDIT - Well, DNS was taking too long to propagate so I reverted back to the old site. I'll try again in the wee hours of the morning.

It would give the subs a much more polished, high end appearance.

At a bare minimum, at least use black screws/bolts, so they blend better.

Other than that, I imagine they are very impressive at full tilt!
Thanks for the feedback. I usually switch all of them out with black bolts but obviously picked up a subwoofer I hadn't modified yet. Nick at SI provides stainless steel bolts but I switch them to black and provide the stainless in the box as an option.

Interesting idea on the trim ring. I like the cool mounting clamps but I can see your point. I will work on something. Again, thanks for the feedback. I have an undergrad and masters in Industrial Engineering and one of the key pillars is continuous improvement. So keep the ideas coming.

They are definitely beasts but are closer to 200 pounds total. And with the aggressive pricing, I'm not able to include freight shipping in the price but until I get my shipment volume up for a better discount, I will eat some of the cost of shipping.

They're going to be way outside my budget at the moment; but, I'm still super excited to learn more about these beasts!
David corrected me and the dimensions were wrong.

They have been updated in the original post...post#9
