I shall be placing my order for a second SI 24 this month. I was contemplating going with a bigger box, but if I do, I will need to order a second box for my first SI 24. I have a question, how can I get to a 12-15 cubic ft. box with less depth. I dont mine width or height, but any box over 18'' deep is a pain in the a$$ to move. What dimensions could I use for a 10, 12, and 15 cubic ft box that is only 18'' deep?

In my opinion the only people who need every ounce of performance sans a HUGE box with this driver are those using very high crossovers, speakers with very little low end capability, power limited, or a very big,open room. My setup has none of those issues so I do not need a gargantuan box.

42x42x18 is a little over 15 and a half cubes gross....add the double baffle and you're either a little over 18 or down to a gross volume of 15 even if you want to keep it at 18 after double baffle

I forgot about the auto box volume calculator at HTS. Thank you for the link.

Still LOVING this woofer. I have a new set of neighbors so i can't play my music more than around 70db in the evenings right now. Music still sounds full, deep, and articulate thanks to the luxurious bass offered by the SI 24 even at low volume levels. Excellent for us condo/apartment dwellers. I can't wait to get my hands on one more of these to complete my setup. I recently changed out my receiver for a preamp and the setup sounds amazing. Signal strength is much better. Music quality is clearer and there is no more god forsaken ground loop buzz thanks to the xlr connections. Bass sounds cleaner now as well. This sub is definitely a stunning all in one package. It gets louder than my other four 18" subs I had up front before and it sounds TIGHTER as well. Definitely has AUDIOPHILE QUALITY BASS that matches my Bagend Infrasub 18 and Velodyne DD18 subs I had before.I keep saying one more song and then I will call it a night. I said that at 7pm and it's 1am now and I'm still jamming late. Listening to Vanessa Williams Dreaming right now. Bass is sultry smooth, deep, ultra tight, and soothing. This sub is definitely a MASTERPIECE combo of articulation and raw spl capability all in one package. Loving and savoring every moment with this sub!!!!

I think[know] you're in for an aural assault once you get the HS 24 playing. smile.gif The last G2G showed everyone what a single HS 24 is capable of. I'm very happy with the outcome. cool.gif

PS: The parts needed to keep building these monsters will arrive later this week. biggrin.gif

70db? Brutal.

Soundproofing has helped me tremendously in this regard.
I used to be able to play almost no amount of sound.

Now I can play up to THX Reference above 200hz, and at least 80db of bass below 200hz, and 100db of bass below 15hz 24/7/365 without cops showing up.

Here is an example of my soundproofing in action... as of tonight:

note: There is a train passing by outside.
[Best with headphones cranked]

As you can see, it pretty much blocks out all the treble.
