I'm still waiting on my twin SubMersives.

Mark, any idea when the other finishes for the SubMersive will be ready?

Tonight and Tomorrow. Mark is flying in today and will start the install. Then finish it up tomorrow. My situation is "unique" so I wanted to make sure there was enough time to do everything

Yea I did, 5 Times Mine is in a basement theater and I also moved the 4 of Arts UP( yes UP)stairs to the 2nd floor theater. I then also moved 4 of the SVS's down stairs to the garage. They are a 2 person carry but not as bad to move as the svs's due to size/weight.

Dont forget to take pics and let us know what you think

I am on vacation starting Sun. Wont be back until the following Mon. Getting the pictures on to my computer that has internet access is not an easy task. BTW I am going to be in Clearwater FL. You guys are just going to have to wait. But I am sure I can convince mark to post some thoughts and numbers from my room.

Good luck I'm sure Mark won't put you wrong.

BTW I've converted several Audiophiles' downunder to the benefits of using goods subs to enhance their 2ch experience.

OK Phase one is complete. Mark got to my house about 8:30pm and stayed for about 2 hours. In that time he was able to get the sub upstairs. That was easier then I thought. We got my old sub out and unpacked the SubMersive. Mark cleaned it off. Then he fixed a problem that I was having. It turns out that I mistakenly switched my amp to mono. Duh . Any way, know we are good to go. So tomorrow the connection and calibration will take place. This is going to be one bad ass MoFo in my room. Stay tuned for more tomorrow.

So the submersive makes you talk funny even before you hook it up? Imagine afterwards.

Yea, who knows what will happen . He will stop by this morning to finish up the job. We just need to decide on placement. Right now it is in the back of the room next to my main listening position. But he is strongly thinking about putting it in the front left corner of the room. We shall see. Then we just need to connect the EQ and calibrate. I will update again when it is complete. That is, if I am able to type a sentence that makes sense .

I've been trying to see a picture of this sub and some technical data. All that a Google search comes up with is forum threads. Not even a one page Web site?

Oh, yes. There's also this that comes up on Google:

Submersive Trauma

A term commonly used among EMT's, Paramedics, and Firefighters to describe someone who has just been laid.

A term used to describe the act of having sex.

A term used to describe the a type of trauma commonly suffered by those who have just been penetrated in a sexual manner (i.e. BLUNT=penis; PENETRATING=the act of sex; SUBMERSIVE=entering someone with a blunt tipped penis or other phalic-like object; and TRAUMA=the resulting condition).

The other night, I left my girlfriend lying there on the bed, dripping wet, and suffering from blunt penetrating submersive trauma after doing her for over an hour!

http://www.urbandictionary.com/defin...mersive+Trauma

Pretty funny. Huh?

I dont want to give any incorrect data so I will only state what I know, 2 15" drivers mounted on opposing sides of the cabinet thats why you can only see one but trust me there are 2 active 15" monsters in there and powered by 1000w digital amp, ive actually held one of these amps in my hand and its hard to believe that 1000w amp can be so light and it was actually powering one of his speakers and felt literally no heat, the unit is extremely well engineered, the input uses a balanced connection, because of the design using drivers on opposite sides of the cabinet you can literally put this on a tile floor and it wont walk away on you while playing at high spl levels, be warned this is a scary subwoofer, not for the faint of heart he has put so much engineering into this thing its amazing, tune it to your room with a good eq (recommend QSC) and you wont have to worry about replacing a sub, does music beautifully as well, if anyone else including Mark wants to jump in with any more technical data feel free, also this is a sealed unit not ported and will go down to single HZ range in properly tuned rooms, this is a sub that you "FEEL" not just listen to, it can beat up your torso area pretty bad with the right material such as "open range"

Thanks. And how does one go about buying these subs? Could not find them on the Internet, could not find a company Web site.

If you want to by one, you can contact Mark Directly. Either PM or his email. I will send you his email address. Check your PM

Any way, My install is complete. OMG. This is just a crazy good sub. But it is not just the sub. Mark did a complete system overhaul for me. The results were quite dramatic. The sub has +-4db reading down to 8hz in my room . Dynamics are just insane. We played clips of Master and Commander, U-571, and Open Range . I will put it to you this way. Instead of just watching a gun fight, the dynamics are so good that it sounds what guns would really sound like. The thunder sounds like real thunder. Not just movie thunder playing loud. It is quite impressive. I have no regrets about this at all. Just as a reference point, my previous sub was ported, had a 13.18in driver and had a 400watt amp. It started to drop off hard in the mid 20's at least. This is a completely different animal.


Not to mention that Mark is a great guy to meet and he is wicked smart. When he was testing and using his lap top, I was in awe. He would change the crossover a bit. Or the speaker distance in the processor or the delay times just a bit. But the results were dramatic. My theater has never sounded like this. It was a total system upgrade.


Mark has got fairly uniform results in all installs. It will have a roll off down to 10Hz in most rooms. Output is major in all respects. Although Mark will tell you there is always room for more. I am very happy. Anybody looking for a new sub HAS to consider this. You will not be sorry. I am not. Look for more views when I am able to watch some movies when I get back from vacation. Mark said that he would post some charts from my room next week.

It ain't easy being green.
