This thread derailed quick.

Random thoughts:

I guess we all now your motivation for so many subs was actually to shape them into phalluses.
Yes that's the biggest subwoofer penis I've ever seen.
Is that your next vertical box design?
Will Nick be using that picture on his website?
What did your wife say?
My wife can never see this thread if I'm ever to hang out with you again. REAL MATURE MAN.
This picture is destined to be an internet meme forever.

@ Austin.

Somehow I completely accidentally clicked the facebook like button at the top of my kindle fire when trying to navigate the pages on this thread. Guess who saw my profile update about liking a thread -- complete with my last post.

My wife.

She said 'That's embarassing, You have to delete your 'like' and comments before someone sees it' I unliked all the comments I recently liked in attempts to remove it from my facebook (heck at that point I had no idea how it even got to facebook?!?!?!?!) Then I realized that there is a facebook like right by the navigation buttons on my kindle - unliked it there and I was in the clear. At any rate - Austin. I blame you.

After our visit Carp and I laughed that you were the type of friend who got his peeps into trouble.

The new Stereo Indecency King Kong Rama Lama Ding Dong. Provide proper power to utilize that long linear stroke giving enough displacement to satisfy a blue whale. Just remember to well brace that box, as it will take a beating. Too much? Nah, just right for those crazy SOB's on the AVS DIY forum.

Dude, if I stay sealed even using all 32 subs, not's ported monsters still doubles my SPL capability near port tune! How is that for perspective.

Ha, that was actually in the morning right before I headed out for work. I was in my suit pants...right before I took that video when I took out a different driver, I was trying to get leverage and ripped a 7" tear right from under my balls up my crack. Major blow out! I'm not sure it can be fixed because it wasn't torn from the seam...

So yeah, there were a few things I could have done differently that morning.

NotNyt and N8Dogg are the only two members that have more than 32 SI equivalence's.
I got 22 SI's apparently, so you got me beat by 10 once you get this thing up and running...

I wonder how our higher frequencies would compare? Probably irrelevant because so nobody could withstand the SPL without also going deaf.

If I port my system like Notnyt he would have 2 dBs more than me at 16hz but I would have 8 dBs more at 10hz(difference of tunes). 12.5 hz and 20hz are less than a dB. The difference is my room. Pop's room is small and makes a huge difference.

True.
If I ghorned all my subs I'd be way up there too.
But like Pop, I'd have to build a house OUT OF sub boxes as my current room couldn't support the size of all the boxes and have room for seating or breathing.
IB horns on ceiling and all 4 walls???
