I can't feel any air at all. I can feel energy, ie clothes shaking, nose itch, floor vibrates. There is not much air that you can feel that comes out anyways with the huge horn mouth.

No, you wouldn't.

It's just like the reverse. If you put you your hand on the end of the shop vac hose it sucks your hand up violently...a few inches away and nothing.
The air is pushed around right at the mouth in close proximity. Beyond that range there are pressure waves.

I forgot how loud the fans are on the clone. What's the consensus on swapping them out? Does this mod relate to failure of the amp or no?

Just find some Nexus computer fans and be sure the resistance matches or get a speed control

Done

Couch and stuff to deliver next week and the rest of the gear to install and I'll post up some measurements soon. I have some mains to build too.

When I sit at the LP, my vision blurs nicely with my new favorite demo track - buy the flac file, it's worth the $2:

Nice! Did you ever get a chance to tune your subs?

Thanks man - the LEDs really showcase the driver that has been hidden up there. The plan is to make grills with white grill cloths for the subs and surrounds. I sure like looking at the drivers for now though.
