I kept building and eventually got to ported huge (really huge) 420lb subs with 4 TC Sounds LMS-Ultra 18" drivers. Modest is not in my system. Honestly, I think everything I've built in the past was a waste of money now that I know the dollar value of what I have now. I know $900 drivers may not fit 'value' statements but knowing that I'm done with building subs made them a bargain.

640KB of RAM ought to be enough for anyone.

Hi Rob.

I keep forgetting. I am trying to devise grills but that is proving to be the biggest engineering feat of the entire project.

Thanks for all the replys. I am no stranger to overkill, I'm a huge gearhead and strongly believe that you never have enough horsepower. I just wanted to make sure that's what it is. I see all these posts about peoples home theater builds, which are all amazing, and I kept seeing a common theme where people are using huge speakers with multiple drivers and multiple subwoofers. Its overwhelming for someone who is perfectly happy with the tiny little Def tech 5.1 system in their living room. I know there is a difference between a lot of sound and high volume, just not quite sure where the line is between the right amount and complete overkill.

I used to doubt how much of a difference a subwoofer could make until I finally had a good one in my home. I'm in the process of putting in about 3x more subs. If you're perfectly happy, don't touch a thing. Ignorance is bliss.
