I was encouraged by a few kind folks to put the build thread up even though it seems as if several others have already chronicled this path very well.(UPDATE 3/12/13 Pictures of build start start with Post #29!)
Before getting started, I would like to give a shout-out to Archaea, Gorilla83, LTD02, and Erich at DIYSG for already answering some of my questions, and helping me arrive at even more! If I missed anyone that has shared some advice with me, I apologize in advance.
PLEASE WEIGH IN IF I SEEM TO BE GOING ASTRAY SOMEWHERE...
I AM NEEDING GUIDANCE WITH THE AMPLIFIER/DSP TO BE PAIRED WITH THIS BUILD, BIG TIME!!
My build will not be breaking new ground.I will post pics once I have started the assembly.
It will consist of:Two 4 cubic foot, SINGLE-DRIVER flat packs from Erich.
I plan on assembling these AS SEALED ENCLOSURES
with some clamps, Titebond 3 (extended work time), and shooting the joints with some pins to help hold until cured.
DuraTex for the finish (what can I say...home theater setting...it works!)Two Dayton Audio RSS460HO-4 18" Reference HO 4 ohm subwoofers
(one per enclosure)
Spikes (rounded or pointed) or rubber feet under each cabinet. I have a concrete floor with carpet and pad...what might be best?
Not sure about binding posts....two pairs of what Erich has pictured at the bottom of the flat-packs page?
I have a calibrated Dayton UMM-6 mic coming to me from Cross-Spectrum.Amplifier and DSP...I was initially bouncing around either an EP4000 or CV5000 with external DSP (what?) run off a trigger from my receiver so that I can keep the amp in a separate location further away from my listening area?????
What will I need to connect these components? XLR cables? Clean Box? 12V trigger stuff (MrSmithers?)?
I have a Denon 2310CI receiver (one sub out...Audyssey, but not XT). Do I benefit big time from having 2 sub-outs from the receiver? Will be TRYING to keep this to just the two subs...
Room is an L-shaped finished basement of just under 4000 cubic feet, combination of 7-8 foot ceilings, no bass treatments, concrete slab floor with carpet.
I use the room almost 100% for home theater/movies with my projector. The music I do listen to ends up being concert DVDs.
Thanks for being postive y'all...what a great forum!!
