Infinity 1260/1262 information QA and build link thread
Infinity 1260 or 1262 subs which one to buy and why?
Placement: Nearfield, All 4 courners of room, A wall of them...
The infinity sub lately has become pretty popular on the fourm so I thought it would be nice to have a thread with a bunch of build threads linked and pictures of the subs. After reading many threads on this fourm as I do everyday There still seems to be alot of qeuestion's about each model and how there different and how much power they can handel. I hope this thread will help explain the Infinity 1260 and 1262 sub and show how some of us have used them and wired them, plus there box size, how they were stuffed, ported boxes, sealed boxes and what amps we use to power these bad boys.
I'll be adding wiring diagrams on each model from the12volt.com and also link differnt builds using these subs. I hope everyone can help out and add there experance and comment to this thread to help out others that are intrested in buying and building cabinets for these subs.
The reason why I picked the infinity sub to go with in my room was because of the cost of these at 50$ each the small box size @ 1.25 cubic ft. each. One of the popular websites you can buy these off of is sonicelectronics.com right now a pair (2) 1262 s is a 100$ and the 1260's are 140$ for a pair of them. Please note that if you call them on
the phone and ask for the pair of 1260's to be lowered to 100$ they will do that as of yesterday when I ordered 4 more for my room.
I'm going to try and list as many infinity builds as I remember so if I missed anyone please post and tell what you think of these and how you use these in your room.
I'm going to reserve the first few post and add build links to them.
In my room I started out with the Stereo Integrity HT-18 subs in 44/40/20 inch slot ported boxes powered by two Inuke 6,000 DSP amps for the subs. But after a few months this wasn't cutting it for me. I was looking for something more in bass that would make me feel like I was right there in the movie. So after some searches and threads came up I started to see a few other avs friends on here building these Infinity 1260 subs and saying they were placing them nearfield. So I started sending PM's out to these guys and following there threads. I thought to myself man I would love to have that realistic feeling when there's a gun fight or explosion in a movie to make it feel like your right there in the movie. So after a lot of thinking and asking questions I started my infinity build. I bought 4 of the 1262's for 200$ and a Inuke 3,000dsp amp. Let me tell you I'm really happy I did that!!!
Now that everything is up in running the entire Theater Room experience has changed into a fun almost realistic experience when movies are playing. When Underworld Awakening is playing with big gun fight at the end you feel every gun shot in your back. Then there's the movie clips that have the big explosions that go into low bass scenes were the riser, chair and your body just shakes like crazy. There's so many fun clips that bring smiles on every ones face who sits in the seats. For the cost of these subs you can't go wrong. I know these aren't the best subs on the market for sale but at 50$ each you can really bring a lot of enjoyment to your room. I just bought 4 more infinity subs and a new amp so I'll be able to have 8 subs firing into the back of the seats. That's going to be fun! What great budget sub!!!
Just a quick chart for the subs when teamed up to an Inuke 3,000 dsp amp on 1 channel. If you have 4 use 2 on each channel of your Inuke amp. The dsp works great no need to buy anything else to eq these.
2-1262 subs will be wired at 4 ohms which will have the inuke push 880 watts to both of them.
2-1260 subs will be wired at 2 or 8 ohms and at 2 ohms your inuke amp will push two of these at 1,500 watts. Please set your limiter and high pass on the inuke if you go this route so you don't cause any damage to your sub!
