That sub will do just fine in 4.5 cuft. No need for 8 cuft as there will be zero driver protection involved. 22 inch cube is perfect.

Hummm ok. Everytime I've heard it talked about on the other home theater forums people say it needs a huge box to sound right. Ive heard numbers as high as 20 sq ft. The guy I bought it from had it in an 11 sq ft box though.

The previous version IIRC needed a much bigger box, but as the current design stands now, you can stuff it in a much smaller box than previously. Perhaps just a bit more power, but in my experience, limiting the excursion via box size and adding some more power is a win win with space limitations. I was previously looking at an 8 q18's setup where each box was about 8 cuft for a PAIR. WinISD confirmed this was great option with ample power. I think I was looking at doing a LG 10000Q with a pair per channel. Ill try and find the graph that Scott Simonian drew up comparing that to some other similar options, but it was only for 4 fi Q's. I will say for sure they modeled very well in that small of a box, you just couldnt hit em with only 200 watts, it was a shade more than that eek.gif

Haha, well I'd have to say your budget is definitely larger than mine. Unfortunately I recently found out that the Q I bought was the older version, but it was still cheaper than the SSD I was going to get so I figured it would still be a better route.

no prob then!!! Reach out! a few folks around here will post some graphs if you ask nicely, and they will show you exactly what you will get with 12 cuft vs 8 vs 4. Good people abound in this area, we are all in it together! haha
