What you just described would be $900K-1.5M depending where in SF or the SF peninsula (silcon valley)

Well, that's what happens when China gets rich. But what you have to think about is how much MORE housing prices are going to increase in the future. I would think it would be a fairly good investment to purchase a house now when the prices are still relatively "low." I doubt very much house prices will drop again within 10 years. In my area, housing prices have more than doubled in price in the last 10 years, even in the recent current recession.

Anyway back on topic. Have you posted how much you have spent total on this project yet? I'd really like to know how much everything came out to and how it's possible that you are still alive. I'm quite sure most wives would have slaughtered their husbands by now for spending so much on subwoofers when saving for a house. And from your pictures of your armory, it looks like she has plenty of methods to do so as well.

You guys think you got it bad , we pay for land by 35 sq/ft increments. Where I live one 35 sq/ft piece of land will cost you $3,000 US. Do the calculations, you can get a piece of land measuring 40ft by 40ft for the cheap price of $135K (that is on the big side for land here, and houses actually have to be built on that ) Of there are bigger lots, it is just the cost becomes huge. Not to mention the tax would be about $5K per year, so count your lucky stars people.

I would go crazy living on land that small. But I am also going crazy paying the HUGE house and property tax as well.

My build thread

My 8 x RE XXX 18" Subwoofers, IB build
Couldn't pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel.

Do you know what Nemesis means?

That's actually not that bad at all. Taiwan is like that also, except you pay for 35sq/ft increments for apartments, not lot size. That means you don't actually even own any land at all. $3,000 for 35sq/ft isn't bad at all. That's only $300k for 3500 sq ft. Houses in my area are about 3550 sq ft and costs about $1Mil US. That's cheap compared to places like Taiwan or even New York. Check out the prices in Manhattan.

I am talking average costs here, in the cities you can be paying $20K for 35 sq/ft! That does not leave you much to build on.

On top of that people have to build a house on top of that and most companies charge between $6000-$9000 for 35sq/ft of house that is built. So if you build a 3550sq/ft house you are looking at about $850K and that won't fit on a 40' by 40' ft block of land so you are looking at over one mil for a house that big here too. (that is going by cheap rates) Plus I have seen appartments here around that size (3500sq/ft) for around $6mil and more in Roppongi.

This is one spectacular set of subwoofers! I was really hoping you would have had the time to take and post some measurements to give us an idea of what kind of insane performance your setup is delivering. Hope you get a chance soon.

I was just in Tokyo this past January. I still have the female voice of the metro in my head, "Roppongi! Roppongi!"

Sorry for not responding, I have been working on this project for the past year:

http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hp?t=127962753

Its actually quite an interesting thread. I attacked gym equipment like I attacked subwoofers. My home gym is still an ongoing process.

I'm extremely limited in my home theater and home gym capabilities until I am able to build or buy/modify a house. Still renting.

As far as the subwoofers go, They have met and exceeded my expectations. The amps are located in a closet, so the fam noise of the Lab Gruppens is not an issue. I got lucky there was a closet right where I needed it in this rental house. As you can see in the thread above, its has consumed most of time time since I finished these subs. Its still ongoing, but I expect to have it finished in approximately 3 months. I'm at the point where the house/rooms are limiting my 2 main hobbies at this point.

P.S.

Any new drivers out there like the LMS 5400? I still have two of those drivers new in the box, factory sealed.

nice thread over on bodybuilding.com. i only got through a few pages. just be safe. i once saw a video of a guy break his femur dead lifting...yeah, his femur snapped into two pieces...ouch...otherwise, hernias, torn cartiladge, etc. i won't even talk about what can happen to a human doing squats. makes me wonder if it is really worth it.

haven't seen anything like the lms5400 recently. why do you ask?

Listen. It's All Good.

I was asking becasue I know there were a few other drivers in development and I haven't been watching the subwoofer forum due to my gym project. So just curious if another beast driver or another high quality driver came out :-) I dunno, like a 24" driver wtih 5 inches of Xmax, or a new rotary fan sub :-)

Take a look at the gym thread if it interests you. It has all the best equipment in the world listed in that thread. It wa a lot of work to do that research and would benefit anyone interested in the best of the best machines and free weights.

if that is really what you want, there is the mtx jackhammer. the jackhammer doesn't have a lot of xmax though, looks like 1.35 inches, with 2.5 inches xmech. $12,500.

When I saw what you were wanting to do I thought that the duct jack would be the right piece of equipment to use. Your subs look fantastic. Best of all, you don't have to worry about them being stolen. Thieves can't pick them up.
