Back OT, I would not recommend a vertical DO alignment. My tiny horizontal alignment suits the drivers very well. A veritcal alignment would be fairly top heavy as each HST-11 weighs over 70 lbs so you would have 70 lbs of weight at/near the middle of the enclosure.

But if you do build a vertical DO box for these drivers note to be extremely careful to not bump into the enclosure(s) as they may topple over.

I recently put spikes on the bottom of my DO HST-11 enclosure and I can't lift it with my fingertips to reposition it. I'm going to ask a few friends to help me move it now that the spikes are installed. It's not easy picking up a small brick-sized enclosure that weighs almost 200 lbs with your fingertips.
Maybe not for the negative Nancy's or wussy Wanda's out there...

Hit the gym bro...

I'm not sure I would do a dual opposed model or not. If a single one was used would it be okay to be down firing, and how much clearance would it need?

I completely understand. I have seen a bunch of posts where people are coming down on you pretty hard and that too would make me not want to be on AVS for a while. Shoot, even when I get infractions that I disagree with I don't want to be on AVS. Other infractions that I deserve is a different story though.

A single driver down-firing would be fine. I would still leave 2" in front of the top (or bottom, depending on how you look at it) of the surround to allow for enough excursion.

So if I had to SWAG it... I would say 14"L x 14"W x 18"D. Would allow 2" for cone travel and another 2" of clearance from the ground in general.

IMHO.

Hey Nick, couple quick question for you on the HST11s (and maybe HST 12s).

1) would these and/or the 12s work ok in dual front firing config stacked in a single cab without tipping themselves over/walking too much?

2) do you happen to know the sensitivity 1W/1M of these guys? I looked on site, but didn't see that for the HST 11 & 12.

asking for planning purposes, not flame wars... Thanks!

Very nice! How do you not have these parked behind your couch? Or is the room small enough that you get a good punch from across the room?

In the first post he stated that his room is 11x11, which means his couch is up against the back wall, so the sub has to go up front or on a side wall.

Time for me to eat some major crow. I was wrong in what I posted way early in this thread. I was wrong, and I apologize.

I do see how this driver has pushed the boundaries (sp ?) of what was available before, and how it has surpassed other options currently available. I was too quick to judge, without seeing what was right in front of me. Completely my bad. I'll own that, as I was not seeing the bigger picture.

I want to be the first one ( yeah, too late, I know) to say I was wrong. And I'm sorry. I was completely out of line.

Nick... thank you for all that you do, because you've made this entire venture a better thing for all of us, even dumb-asses like myself that don't see it right away. For anything negative I've ever said, I apologize. I recognize, appreciate, and thank you for what you've done for this 'hobby'. I was totally out of line, see that now, feel really bad, and acknowledge my mistakes.

Wow, Ok. I'm glad you have seen what we are all about at Stereo Integrity. Especially with the linebacker 11's: Absolute asault on the low end even in the tiny sealed enclosures they call for.
