Pictures are old-school man, for an era when people only had 500k upload internet connections. People can now upload 1gb full-length 1920x1080p videos.

Where-else or how-else can you hear any of the gear that any of us own?

MOST CAN'T. 100% of this DIY stuff isn't available in a store anywhere. It's unobtainium without purchasing it first.

So unless you fly 4000miles to my house you will never hear such
OR
own it yourself by spending the $30,000 price tag it costs

It allows people to sort-of hear it, before buying.

THAT, is the point

I know it's far from ideal... but it is still better than nothing at all.

It is kind of like watching a 3 second top fueler via a computer vs in-person

Well that's because my system was changing to darn rapidly over the last few weeks.

4 weeks ago I only had 4 subs going. The earlier vids were only with 4.
I've added almost ~1 sub per week since. I'm slowing down only because my wallet is emptying

Lotta power. I only have about 3000 watts and my system goes louder than is usable (126db+).

I have them hooked up in my system. It was an honest question. My subs are all the same sub, only 4 cabinets, and running in my system. These are all different types and not all hooked up and seem scattered about, hence my wondering what the final goal was, or if he is just testing things.

What meter are you using?

You are looking at the 2-ohm spec (which the clones can't do), notnyt uses them in 4-ohm, so...
4400 x 8 = 35,200 watts (peak power)

I'm not sure...
Right now I don't have enough amplifier power for even the 7 I'm currently powering, let alone the others.

Hence why I was looking into a FP14K (or 2+, depending on exactly how beefy/good they are; not sure until I try.)

um but, my room has serious phase issues (or something) cause I rarely break 122db with those 7, with an average of 110db, at least according to my CM-140. Which is loud, but I don't find it THAT loud.

My room is about 20% smaller than yours notnyt.

I'll probably use the FP14K to power the 21's, and that then frees the EP4K that is powering them now, for 2 channels of 4-ohm of the quad Dayton 18's (8-ohm single coil).
A single EP4K is enough for the Quad's, but two bridged EP4K's hit a fair bit harder and sound nicer while doing so.

The 21's eat a single EP4K with ease, like it is nothing, however two EP4K's bridged have enough power for them.

The FP14K would allow me to place the 21's at different sides of the room, because of the limitations of my electrical.

I was gonna say, all them subs and amps and not be limited by the electrical system. Sounds like someone needs a 3phase line ran, and some PKN amps lol.

On a more serious note, do you notice much diffrence in your electrical bill depending on how much you use them?

I always use them so I have no month bill to compare to.

See this is what I mean, the 21's just laugh at the EP4K with its pretty blinking red lights. They are just like: Is that all you got? haha
So the FP14K is gonna have its work out cut for it. Will it be enough I wonder?
