So I am getting transferred from Delaware to Massachusetts and luckily enough the guy who is buying my house is buying it with my home theater. The sad part is that my dual opposed mfw subs are included
In the deal. For my new system I was planning on starting with a PN59D8000 Samsung Plasma to replace my UN55C8000 Samsung LED. For speakers I was gonna go with paradigm monitor 9's or 11's and cc-290 or cc-390 to replace my Focal/JM Labs Sib XL's. I am going to try and find some used/demo version 6's on audiogon or maybe even find some leftover demos in a shop around my new home. A simple denon, onkyo or integra receiver with a minimum of 7 channels, multeq xt and the highest amount of wattage possible without breaking the bank to replace my Integra 40.2. Hopefully I can find that on audiogon as well.
Now to my main question and most important...what subs to build? Seems like everything out there is kinda boring and I would like to try something different than the dual opposed mfw's and hopefully come up with something new but thats not going so well. The RS390-HF's seem kinda boring and so do the Titanics.
Any ideas because the best possible scenario I can come up with is RS390-HF's in a twin dual opposed setup with an EP4000 and minidsp to tweak the FR and add a little to the sub 20hz area. This at least gives you guys an idea of my budget.
The exciting thing about all of this is that i'm basically getting a second chance to design my system all over again. I get to fix the mistakes I made, upgrade to the current models and luckily I won't be losing much of what I had spent the first go around.
