I had a wall of subs in the front, 4 more 10's in bass bins, ported 15's in the back, ported 12's along the sides, changing their locations and moving things around all the time. It just ruined the whole experience and started to drive me nuts, so I had to give up before I went insane.
I completely understand and feel what you've gone through...I'm also saying that YOU understand what I'm going through!

thanks for letting me know re the SI18's not being able to do Ghorns with them.
I'm prob just gone try a transducer 1st and also think this should be enough. Thank you kindly

My signal chain rolloff starts around 6HZ...past measurements I got a 134.5DB at 6.5HZ.
Don't get me wrong...I'm still shaking when example:
the chopper scene in Lone Survivor, trust me my chair (where I'm sitting) is shaking pretty dam good.
Sitting on the sofa upstairs during the same scene is an unbelievable difference.
I swear to you that standing upstairs while the chopper scene goes, you cannot focus whatever would be playing on the tv upstairs.
Now with the SI's not being able to do Ghorns, I'm wondering if changing 2 of my 21's to ported could help a little.
To be clear, my room sweeps lacks from 13 to 26hz and then get ridiculous boost at 30hz, 80hz and 8-10hz.
I'm craving right now the 13-26hz region.
I really need to get to Notnyt's place (closest to me) and get a feel for his system. I'm also convinced if I go that it'll cost me a pretty good amount on wood and Duratex
(a tranducer for sure)
