Here's the result of my diy subs: Oops

So I'm watching "Getaway" and the scene with the power plant explosion is on. I see outhe of the corner of my eye something fall from my ceiling. I press pause and walk over.
Turns out the bass rattled my recessed ceiling light bulb clean out of its socket.
I swept up the mess and played the scene again. Freaking awesome!!! I guess I have to remove the rest of the bulbs by hand tomorrow. Good thing I have plenty of other lighting lol.
BTW those are two si 18's and an inuke 6000dsp

Bravo! I used a few healthy blobs of painters caulk inside my cans to keep them from rattling out. It stopped the vibration sounds too.

When you break the lightbulb's filament while they are still in their sockets, then you know you have bass.

I had to switch to LED lighting. Can't exploded LED's...(OR CAN YOU? LOL )
