Ok I can't find the box calculator on HTS.com. Can someone help me with some quick specs. I need the tallest box with the least amount of depth for 15 cubic ft. I'm looking to redo my first box and make my second box tall and thin so to speak. Thanks.

I purchased a IPR2-7500 tonight for my pair of SI 24 subs. Will try to have two tall, slender 15 cubic ft boxes made for them in January. I'm also flat out bored of my Yorkville U15s so I should have four of them sold on this saturday. I then plan to get a second pair of Yorkville U215s for my rears when I can find a used pair on CL or ebay with shipping. So I won't be going back to a 7.4 system. Too many potential problems, more wires, more amps, and more all out headaches. Gonna go simple with a 5.2 system on steroids.

Depending on their price. If their quote is too high I will go with someone local.

My additional four Yorkville U15's are now sold. If anyone knows of anyone willing to sell a pair of used Yorkville U215's please let me know. I'm willing to make a long drive if necessary. If not, I will have to swallow the bullet and pay for a new pair of U215's in February.

Also, my deal for the IPR2-7500 fell through. Nothing to power the SI 24's right now unless I purchase one of PDX realtors used 7500s. But I'm starting to question if the 7500 is worth twice the price of a Inuke 6000. I have no doubt it is a better amp. But is does not seem to be anywhere near "twice" the amp. 2 ohm capability seems to be the only major advantage. Don't see any major differences on 4 ohm specs.

Yup. It's really damn useful for the heavy output with 2ohm.

There are many situations (especially for subs) where this is worth the price. But if you need 4ohm power then the 6000 is a more affordable choice.

Was it you that tried to buy one from Amazon for some crazy low price and then they said that they were refunding your money? That would piss me off!

We apparently both tried to buy the same amp. Stock went off when I got it, came back up and Swole bought it, then they cancelled his transaction and all of a sudden there are 11 now back in stock at the regular price......Garbage.

DD - I'm currently running 2 of the IPR7500s and 2 of the Inuke6000DSP's all running in 4 ohm stereo to power my 14 X SI 18s. In this configuration, I cannot tell the amps apart in terms of power/output/sound quality. Unless you 'need' to have the 2 ohm config, the inukes are a great buy IMO.
