Thanks for the reply all. Mark sent me the invoice for the 2 UXL's. Bummer is the invoice says they should ship out on the 21st. I leave for mayo the 23rd. Not sure if my family will be here with the kids or at their house, so mark will hold off shipping them out for me until I have a better idea when I will be heading home from mayo.

Got shipping confirmation of 1 of my drivers today. Going to have to make sure someone is around the house when it gets delivered while i am gone. Wonder when the second will ship out.

First driver is set to be delivered Thursday. The first day we are at mayo, going to have to get someone to be at the house. The second driver is set to ship out Friday. Will be a nice welcome home present.

Both are now finished. Cant wait to get my amp on Saturday. Going to be epic...going to be so much different then that orb 8 I had.

My amp doesn't come until Saturday. My mic will be here the following week. But they will both get fired up this weekend. I just have to figure out the settings for inuke and make sure all the filters are correct.

Man if you were close to me drinks would be on me. Same with LTD and jbrown.

Now THAT'S an exciting weekend! The finished product looks great. It's amazing how the sheer size of those cabinets makes the drivers look small!

You can do all of the programming through the front controls on the face of the amp.

Wow, just wow...got them setup and my kids had finding nemo by the blueray player so I popped it in and went to the darla scene. Had the avr set for sub to 0 and had the volume at -10db.

I was not ready for the power of these. Woke my kids up from their nap, windows flexing. Crazy, I am in love again.

My wife was sitting next to me and said it vibrated her to the point she said i have to use the bathroom now..lol

So many movies lined up to watch.

High pass is at 20hz, butterworth, 6db slope.

Once I get my mic I can get a better reading. I might do the spl meter for the time being. When watching lone survivor my avr was at -15db and I was only getting the second light to come on the amp.

what's your box tuned to? Is it 16 hz? If it is, you could probably move the HPF way lower than 20.

No it did not, have no idea why i put down 20z..It is indeed 16hz tuning.

I now understand what everyone is talking about with the grenade scene from world war z. I had my avr on -18db and thought my house was going to implode..I have no idea how someone would play it at reference.

The hpf on a ported sub is to protect the driver from over-excursion at frequencies below the tuning frequency. A high pass filter reduces the signal to the sub at frequencies below it's value. By having a 20 hz high pass filter, you are reducing its output from 0-20 hz, but you only want to reduce the output from 0-15 hz. You can change the hpf to around 15 or 16 hz, which will protect the driver, and give you better output from 16-20 than what you have now.
