Hey guys. After extensive research, I finally started my project a while ago and decided to post some pictures. The use of these is gonna be 50/50 between movies and music, but my main goal was sound quality.
I will be using all Seas speaker. For the mains I'm using 2 10" seas prestige woofers (H1209), 2 6" mids (E0049) and a Magnum tweeter for each channel. For the center I'm using 2 8" Sease prestige woofer, 1 5" mid and seas tweeter.
The cabinets are going to have 2" think MDF walls all around with heavy bracing and lined with a rubber compound and stuffed. The wood was cut by a friend using CNC.
The mains are going to be tri-amped with a DEQX x-over. The center will have active x-over designed by Madisound. All speakers are from Madisound.
As for the Subs, I'm using 2 12" TC sound LMS-R in 2 ft3 ported box tuned to 25 hz and 1 18" Maelstrom X-18 in a 10 ft3 box tuned to 18 hz. Running the subs will be 2 marathon 5050 amps ( I know over kill)
so here are some pictures of work in progress.

Those are some pretty impressive components. Should be nice.


Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?
