Not the entire room, just the area of the couch

The only way i knew Mike's Stonehammers were not on during the pre-gtg demo of my choice of select base laden music was the lack of pressure in my ear drums. It was shocking to me what just the 4 could do... and they aren't running at full power yet. The only time I felt more bass was sitting in the back seat of an Acura (back in the day) with (4)12's in the trunk that were trying to stop my breathing.

Dang I need to finish mine!

Infinity 1260/1262 information QA and build link thread

Looks like ups stopped by my house today... I received the 4 speaker terminals for the back of the box thanks to @corradizo with his great Amazon find. I think I paid around 7 or 8 dollars each for for a set of 2.
The next thing arrived was my 4-1260 infinity subs.
I can't wait to start the build in these now very soon.

On another note has anyone seen this before its called immersit. It's basically like dbox but a lot cheaper. I've been following thread on this on avs and they say it can move chairs or couches up to 1,200 pounds. This would be fun for a row of three chairs... This will work with movies and playstion , Pc games and other gaming systems. Sounds interesting.

oh ya you read my mind. I'm going to switch them this weekend or sooner. The wife hasn't said a word yet about them to. I figured she would of made some type of comment about the subs showing up yesterday but hasn't so it's all good so far

@eng-399 big ticket kick starters put me off. Not to mention since they have to program each movie, if they go out of business you've got paperweights. I'd probably wait for them to develop a more developed model.

I agree with you but it does look cool. Its pretty much the same thing as Dbox but a lot cheaper. Like your saying though what if the company goes belly up your screwed. Plus it looks like there's only so many movies it can work with. I'm like a kid in the candy store on avs I see something and want it

Sooooo... I took the plunge

2 1262's
iNuke 3000
Speakon Connector
Speakon Cable
RCA to XLR cable
Had a local build the box for me. (he did it in 2 days)


Waiting for the amp and connectors to get here!
















going in this:

Darktactics congrats on the infinity journey the box looks great. What's your plan on placement for it up front or in back for Nearfield bass? You can do 2 more 12's with the inuke 3,000 dsp amp to down the road if you want more bass. Your room looks nice to!

Nearfield right behind the couch. Thanks! I still have to paint the room, but got my bonus at work and this just looked like a lot of fun! The PB13 Ultra pretty much pressurizes the room, so I think these will come in handy when we don't have the volume up really loud.

Wondering how 16 infinity 1260's sealed up front would do compared to my 4-18's in there LLT boxes. What would sound better and play lower and louder? The 2-6,000 inukes could power all 16 subs. It would only be 800$ to buy 16 of them and build 2 boxes of 8 subs placed next to each side of the center channel speaker. The crazy thing about this is I think I would have more room behind my screen doing this.

I don't know if you have ever played just using your 12's and not the 18's but based on listening past day using only my 12's I'm gunna say that it just won't sound the same. I think those 18's dig really low and move a lot of air and I don't think a wall of 12's could compete. That's just me though.

Makes sense... But from my limited experience with 12' range (original jtr captivator and pb13 ultra) I really liked the impact and sound of 12 over 18 (newer captivator, epik dynasty)

I took the high pass filter off my mini wall of 12's and they definitely dig low but for output in that 15-20hz range it's hard to compete with ported. They just sound different.

I had a BUT6 at 20 but decided to just take it off. I played Edge of Tomorrow at max volume and subs handled the 10hz pretty darn well. I think I'm gunna go without one for now on.

This is Ryan's subs that he texted me with very cool clip Ryan!!!! As for my box I cut 4 pieces today and called it due to the angle cut in trying to figure out. My table saw only goes up to 45 degree angles and I need a 60 degree cut... Here's @Raylon subs moving

That's awesome! I might hook up an inuke to the infinity's to see what they'll do. Did you guys get the chance to measure it? I wonder if they'll dig down below 20hz with usable output

No measuring yet. I did play a 80-10hz sweep and I knocked some stuff off the walls around 15 hz that my PSA V1500 never did, so theres that

You definitely can't go wrong with DIY.

4 x 1260's + Dayton 18" sub + inuke6000 + wood/supplies + the fun time building = V1500

... only in price

I would guess 4 x V1500's are needed to come close to your DIY's performance. How's that for value, eh!?

Why wouldn't they? 4x12 is the equivalent of a 24.

If I have time tomorrow morning, I'll hook up a 1260 to one of my inukes and remove the HPF (the current plate amp I'm using with the Infinity's have a rumble filter centered ~ 30hz). I'll take some close mic measurements and also do a compression sweep nearfield.

To talk this through:

It takes around 3 Infinities to match a decent 18 in a sealed box. Obviously depends on which 18, but this is in the ballpark. That means you need 12 Infinities to match 4 18s sealed. Now a decent ported box could easily get 6 dB more output around tuning than a sealed sub, and the LLT could possibly be as high as 12 dB more output. You get 6 dB more output per doubling amps and subs, so you'd need 24 to 48 Infinities to match the low end of 4 18s in LLTs. That's looking at the low end where performance is displacement limited, and around tuning of the LLT. Below that, sub-10Hz, sealed Infinities would pull back into the lead. Also, for mid and upper bass the 12s would likely be much more capable.

Thanks for reading and posting your comments. I guess it would be better and cheaper if I kept what I already have and just put the additional 4 infinitys Nearfield and call it until some other 18" or 21" sub comes out that's great.

So I'm trying to wire these up. I went with Option 2, hooked them up outside the box on the floor in the theater room here and I can't get any sound of them. Is there anything you have to do with the iNuke or something?

Hmm do you have iNuke set to correct mode? Input going into the right channel and ouptut hooked up to right channel? Do you have the 3000 or 6000?
