Looking to possibly build 2 dual sealed 18" to try to get THIS room filled with clean bass. Figured 2 18" dual would do the job, but 10 12 15 18 ... All are options, just want something that will be relatively unobtrusive. Cost is a factor of course so i would like baseline costs.

Wondering how big the enclosures would have to be, what amp to use and what wireless options there are. Where to go to get the enclosures made (I am in Houston)

Double walled, fiberglass, foam, finishes ... ETC. Consider me a noob, I am ready to build something badass.

Needs to be wireless ... If it matters,

Main System

Denon 2313
L/R
Martin Logan Motion 40
C
Martin Logan EM C2
Surrounds
Martin Logan FX 2

90% Movie/Game/TV
10% Music

What kind of budget are we talking about?

You could do something very good to include amp, EQ, driver and enclosure(s) for around $1000.

Looking for a build for a sealed box with dual opposed 15" or 18" with amp on board, will need a wireless kit of some sort

  • Sealed
  • Wireless
  • 15 or 18
  • AMP on units
  • Grills to pretty it up

The easier, the better ...

An inboard amp will really limit what you can do and cost much, much more and get less.

You will be lucky to get close to 1000 real world watts with inboard/plate amp for $400.
For under $400 you can get 1500-2000 real watts with a pro amp.

Not many people are using anything wireless. I am sure parts-express carries something that would do the trick though, check there.

There are no pre-made kits that I know of. So, you will need to build the cabinet or have someone build it for you.

Check out the Dayton drivers for something affordable that works well in smallish sealed setups.

OK ... I mean i guess i could use a separate amp and just have it sitting next to the sub, as long as the amp is quiet.

Pro amps aren't known for being quiet without a fan mod, except for maybe th e Crown XLS series., although I have never them. Just passing on some comments I have read.

Well..you may need to do a fan mod to make it quieter...or place it somewhere away from the seating position. I have my pro amps in a cabinet 15ft away so any noise is greatly reduced.
