After watching Enders game and seeing how it challenged my current setup at reference volume, I've decided I need to go bigger. Im basically looking for someone in Orange County or close by, who would be willing to help me model / building the enclosure / help me get it all setup. We can either work out a fair price, or I might be interested in trading my current sub in exchange for the help.
my current setup:
Sonotube sub, containing a blueprint 1803 driver. power comes from a qsc rmx2450 that is bridged into 1 channel ( 2400 watts in bridged mono into 4 ohms iirc ). Im also using a behringer feedback destroyer to take care of 2 nasty peaks i had in my room.
QSC rmx 2450:
Be able to watch blu-rays at reference volume and not worry about my subs not having enough, power/muscle/extension/quality, whatever too keep up. I would also like to not hear my subs make the "chuffing sound". Im think sure this is what happened in enders game ( scene where he is playing the video game and the castle drops ), but i could be wrong and perhaps it was my sub bottoming out / amp clipping...i really dont know.
I was doing some research on the forum and i saw a sub called "the marty sub". i would like to do something very similar to what he did, except id like to hold both 18's in the same enclosure. id like to finish the enclosure in that bedliner/spray on material ( i like to keep things simple, and i think it looks good ) . As for driver choice, I like bang for the buck, so Im thinking the stereo integrity 18 , or the dayton audio HO 18.
here's the thread where i found the marty sub.
I have a good amount of space to work with, but id like to keep the floor dimmension of the box to a max of about 34 x 34 inches or smaller. The height can be what ever it needs to be, but it would be nice, if i didnt have to cover up the 2 movie posters in the corner of the room ( see attached pics ).
So that's it. Anyone in Socal feel like helping out? As I mentioned, I'm glad to pay to have the enclosure built, or i could possbily trade my current sonotube sub ( which still works like new ). Also, Im not oposed to buying prefab sub kits like the one they have on parts express. I'm thinking could buy 2 of these and just stack them. The issue is that they are only 4 cubic feet and i have no idea if that's big enough. They are also sealed, and i think id prefer ported since i heard I'd get more output that way. Truthfully though, im far from a sub pro, like some of the members here, so Im possibly open to sealed subs if there are some pro's that would make sense for me.
Please let me know what you guys think!? Thanks...Im fired up to do this, but im sure you all understand that : )
