Hi to all hst18 owners

I originally had the MartyCube for the HT-18D4's hooked to an Inuke 3000DSP like countless others but once I got the taste I wanted more. I bought 2 HST18 D1's and after contacting Nick at Stereo Integrity looking at the Data Bass chart ( a sealed 4cu.ft. enclosure ) and asking several others I used the cubes but sealed the vent. I am using a Crest Pro Lite 7.5. Some like this amp some do not all I can say is I am totally happy with the amp if I want stupid volume its there never had any issues and I am running at a 2ohm load. My only modification was to replace the fans ( that took 10minutes ).

Attention Waheed001:
Any chance you can stop creating posts that start with "Attention blah blah blah"?

Thats a nice set up and a versatile move!
How do you find the sq with both music and movies?
Does it fill the room well?

You aren't going to like moving those around. Going to be way over 200 lb each.

I am no expert nor claim to be but for me some movies are awesome depending on the movies scene etc my living room seems to come alive as far as music most of my music is Classic Rock such as YES, PinkFloyd LedZepplin as well as newer bands like Rob Zombie Marilyn Manson playing the system at reference it like being at a concert. Some bands do not have lots of bass but others like Rob Zombie hit pretty hard. Yes it fills the room the kitchen the dining room the three bedrooms as well as outside very well. No complaints.
