Hello all -
I recently completed a build of 2 separate sealed 5cuft (gross) boxes using Dayton Audio RSS460HO-4 18's and behringer inuke 6000dsp amp. I am not getting as much output as I would like and need to explore my options for adding more drivers. After EQing it sounds good at moderate volume levels but starts to distort, clip or bottom out when trying to get just a little more out of it by adding more gain or volume from the reciever or more power from the behringer. I have SVS PB-13 ultra I was auditioning and that was just about filling my missing hole. I am sending it back since it was lacking overall output and I did not care for sound quality as I started to push it. Damn god sub otherwise.
What I am looking for in adding drivers:
-I need more output below 20hz. I am pretty flat to 20hz but do start rolling off around 30hz without EQ. I have decent output down to 11hz.
-I only have 1 more spot in the room I can give up and can probably support about a 7 cu ft box maybe a little bigger.
-Should I go ported, sealed, dual, single, 15", 18" ect. I am ok with buying another amp if needed. TC sounds are still not off the table.
Basically need something that will fit the spot in the room and give me the most output.
Please let me know your thoughts.
