Dual Seaton Submersive HP on the way!

Many of you were aware that I was going to start a thread to ask for all bass heads to join and help me decide what sub to get. The contenders were:

1. Dual PSA V1801s
2. Dual JTR 118HT
3. Rythmik FV18s

I was waiting to see the results of Marc's GTG before deciding. I am upgrading from a SVS PC12 NSD, so this will be a huge upgrade. I am currently running a Denon X4300H.

As you can see all of them are ported and then out of left field came in the dual Seaton Submersive HP at a value I had to consider it and based on my room probably will be the best choice. Thanks to @Marc Alexander for introducing me to Seaton, which I was not considering. I would also like to acknowledge guidance from @mthomas47 and basshead81 on options that I have been throwing out on and off. I intended to start a thread to get opinions from folks as well as wait for the SoCal GTG results, however talking to Mark Seaton, who was outstanding and detailed in trying to understand my room and goals, offered me a deal on Submersive HP I could not pass up.

They should be here end of next week in Black Maple...

My room is a 2100 cuft dedicated media room on a suspend wood floor. I can't wait to see what 2 2400 watt amps with 4 15 inch woofers do in that room. I know Mark is well known for his subs and is considered a genius so I am sure I am going to be blown away.

Very excited. They look very nice and should integrate well in the room.

Here is a link to my room pics for those interested.

Yeah. The room is on second floor so have a suspended wood floor. I was really after chest crushing bass and the output from these two should be crazy!

Chest crushing bass is what you will get! The mid bass from just one S3000i in that sealed room would get the job done! Two, might just hurt you.

Congrats on the subs... they sound incredible.

Thanks my friend. Appreciate all the help with REW, that will definitely come in handy. Mark will help me place and set them up. With REW I can give him data to work with. You remember I mentioned the subs listed when we spoke. Well things changed. Lol. Delivery is likely next week now.

Nice choice your going to really enjoy them. I have owned each of Mark's subs and have a particular affinity for the dual opposed design. They are going to pound!

Thanks. Seaton is new to me. But speaking with Mark I was thoroughly impressed. What kind do you have?

I love your built in media rack! Those 110's look so small, even though I know how large they are in person, but I guess you already upgraded to 210s. 😃

Any reason you went with two Submersive HP instead of the Submersive HP+ Master and Slave unit? Just browsed through the latest pricing and specs and seems like a better deal for the master/slave units, if performance is the same.

Speakers: PSA (MT-110 x2, MTM-210C, MT-110SR x2); SVS Satellite x4
Subs: PSA V1801 x2 & V1800 x2, B1200D x2
Actuators: Crowson Tech Shadow-8 x2
Processing/EQ: Denon X4200, MiniDSP HD x2, NU6000DSP

The only thing that rack prevents is putting a sub right in the corner in the front since it is wall to wall. Yes and I do have 210s now sitting in the 110s place. Went with two powered units to allow placement flexibility which Mark stressed is going to be key to get the best impact from these subs. From what I am hearing from folks on this forum I might actually hurt myself listening to them. Fantastic
