Great idea!
The main purpose of making this thread was to help everyone. I think of this thread as the "people's thread". I'll get going on what you suggested maybe I can dig through and see what I can find to plus send out pm's to everyone.

I think my loveseat needs 4 of the 1262s behind it.

Just remember if you want to send the subs full power with the inuke 3,000 your going to need the 1260's and if you buy those ask for the same price from Sonicelectronics.com as the 1262's 50$ each.. They sound great Nearfield as were I have mine right now.

If they are true to their specs, 4 1262s (96db ea) would have a 12db advantage over 4 1260s (93db ea) yes?

So even if I used a iNuke 3K, the power difference is 1250 watts 8ohm bridged vs 2050 watts 4 ohm bridged. The 4 1262s could still be louder. And it would be less stress on the amp.

They are around 86 per watt. The other number is in car

Just thought I would share a nice email I just received a few minutes ago from sonicElectronics.com the email stated that due to them not having the 1260 in stock my order is on hold until they get a new shipment in. The funny thing is I called them at 1pm today and the guy said my order was already packed and shipping out today ups...So basically they lied to me.
So if anyone else just placed there order with them expect to wait now. I'll call them in the morning and ask why they lied to me and when the new shipment will be coming in and let everyone know how long it will be. I guess I'll have more time to build the box for these.

Seriously considering building 4 sealed cabs in the 1.25-1.5 cu ft range. Will that be good for near field? (I'm open to suggestions.)

If I use 3/4" Baltic Birch I was wondering if any bracing is really needed in that small of a cab.

To go along with the low price of this driver. Here is a cheap carpeted box on ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sealed-12-In...RWuNow&vxp=mtr

That's what I have for Nearfield 4-1262's they are nice every gun shot and boom from a movie shakes my four chairs like crazy. There's a few guys that posted comments in my gtg meet under my signature about the infinitys Nearfield. For the price of them there great and a lot better than butt kickers IMO There's no comparison. I really think your going to be happy with them. As for the size of your box if it's sealed at that size your fine. I had a middle divider inside my box so I didn't put any braces in there but maybe use one cross brace in the middle if you can.

As for using Baltic birch and no braces I'll have to have someone else comment on that. I don't want to post bad info because I'm not completely sure.

I've used in with other cabs, but some were bigger and certainly needed bracing. I know it's a lot stiffer than MDF so I'm wondering if it'll be OK to forgo any bracing. I guess part of it depends on how the final cab comes out. I'm thinking 10" deep, the H and W can be whatever to hit the size I'm going with. I thought I read somewhere once that anything wider than 10" needs bracing. I'm 95% sure I'll be OK. But I'm certainly open for opinions.

Yes, that would work well. I'm using a similar box with the Infinity's behind my couch. All you'll need to do is add polyfill.

^^^thats pretty much the exact size box I need for my other 4 infinitys to go in ugh..... This is going to be hard. I have three sheets of Mdf sitting in my garage waiting to be cut. What to do??? If I buy this it's all ready done and leaves me a lot of extra time but 200$ for both when I have the wood. Not sure what to do now.

Good catch I did a quick look at the box and your right it isn't big enough for two infinitys. Also with me having 3 sheets of Mdf sitting in my garage paid for already I'm going to just build mine. It's fun doing it at the same time.

With three sheets of MDF you could probably pretty easily build 4 new boxes, each one being a vertical tower to hold 2 subs. Then you could easily align each one to each seat. I know a guy who would be willing to come over and help build it

Thanks Ryan I'll take you up on that offer once I get going with these. I have the box all drawn out on paper and the the plan was to have all new boxes for all 8 subs. With my current setup the subs are off a little behind the seats so with the new box I'm going to make sure each seat has 2 subs directly behind each seat. It's going to be a fun project to do.

Does it worry you at all that the sealed subs won't keep up with your other subs?

Good question but so far my 4-1262's have been able to keep up with my HT-18's because there sitting right behind my mlp which is the last row of seats. The reason why I'm going to build 4 more subs bringing it up to 8 nearfields is I like the feeling the nearfield subs give me when watching movies. I want it to be more violent and just pounding bass like a car audio system. It makes it feel like your right there in the gun battle. When I installed the first 4 nearfields It changed the entire room and the complete movie watching experience. I've had friends, neighbors and family members clutching onto the side of the seats with there hands because you get so involved in the movie and the bass is also crazy nuts in the room it's kinda funny to watch there reaction. I recommend Nearfield subs to everyone it's truly something just to experience it makes it a whole Lotta fun in the room. Plus these subs are at such a great price you really can't beat it!

thanks for the info...I was thinking of running one channel to power my MFW15 and then use the other channel to power a couple of the infinitys in a nearfield behind the couch..

My nearfields will be for smoothing out some nulls also so I worry that sealed wont keep up with ported. What kind of room gain do you get?

@chadamir you have to keep proximity in mind. They're going to be 2' away from you. You'll more than likely be fine. Also, in my opinion, nearfield subs are all about the tactile response.

With nearfield you don't really consider room gain, it's just the fact that they are about 6 inches from you even the most underpowered sub becomes incredibly loud. If you are looking to even out nulls across the entire room, nearfields are not going to do that. They will give a very tactile feedback to whatever seat they are positioned at though.

Yes, you're right. Your 18" Mini-Marty won't be able to keep up with the Infinity's nearfield. My dual HST-18's in Marty's 11' away has less output >28hz vs. an HT-18 in a Johnny sub firing 6" away. Your mini-marty will fill in the room nicely so the bass won't feel out of place.

The guys are correct. Don't expect room gain with nearfields. I power both of my nearfield 12's with 60w rms each and they'll do 105db @ 30hz+. Moving them farfield, I'll only see 91db.
