Here's the current status of my home theater system, please forgive it's simplicity.
Local Cable Provider HD Cable Box
Center Channel: Yamaha NS-C444
FL/FR: Yamaha NS-777
Rear Surrounds: (4) NS-333
Subwoofer: (1) Velodyne Impact 12
I'm looking to hopefully build a pair of subwoofers to stage within the setup, eventually I'd also like to build another two subwoofers to increase the total in the room to 4. I'd prefer equipment that would keep the setup minimal, and reduce the amount of tuning that is needed since I'm not the only person that uses the room. I would like to keep the size of the subwoofer around 15"-18" and a price point that's somewhat affordable or at least allows me to purchase portions of the equipment in stages, till I can complete the build.
I also use the system for 7.1 at the moment, I'd like to add a set of subwoofers that can provide the "visceral" lows of the theater.
The main problem that I'm running into is finding a driver that I like, under the $500 dollar mark. Seems everything I've looked at, and seen in builds are well into the $650-$750 pricerange. I was looking at the Sundown Audio SA-15's, but I'm curious to see them in a build.
Your suggestions are greatly appreciated.
