Hello AVSForum, excuse my infrequent post. For some reason I can't post pics from a iPhone and it's been all business while siting at a desk or laptop. Just know the BHS24's sound shockingly big and at this point would like to get a professional audio tune up as a whole then have this system reviewed as a whole...
I'm doing as much of this basement rebuild myself, paying for what I need to be in code and will pay for what I don't have completed by 2017 NFL preseason-ish. I took down sheet rock, part of the ceiling as well as added plumbing and electrical. It's an open basement divided into 4 sections and I'm growing the theater section from 15'x45' to 30'x45'.
The breakers and wires were installed first and I couldn't resist the urge to fire them up. I'm again speechless! Extraordinary! Wonderful! Amazing! Insane! Are all adjectives that come to mind but do not truly articulate the amount of ULF production, except maybe Earthquake... The windows appear to flex.
I have a projector hanging from the ceiling and during certain scenes from Battle LA, 9, Batman Under The Red Hood etc etc; the picture becomes indiscernible. I think I could shake my house frame apart from nails backing out the way the windows flex, walls vibrate and things fall off walls and counters. It's endless bass. It's A LOT of bass but the best part about the BHS24's are how articulate and quick they sound and behave.
Again, these are in 11-ish cf sealed boxes tuned flat 14-20hz before I have things tapering off at 23hz with a sharper drop at 42hz and a 48db lpf at 75hz. I tuned it to the liking of my ears then measured and adjusted. I like to keep my ears tuned to the really low stuff from our earth's movement and what's produced in movies which is played 95% of the time. They sound incredible!!!
Aside from the long weeks repairing avionics, kid extracurricular activities and home improvement projects, I'm also working on 14-16 AscendAcoustics Seirra LUNA bookshelf speakers and the amplifiers to drive them. I went with 2 MX-A5000 amplifiers after flirting with and deciding ANTHEM's weren't in the budget yet.
The BHS24 sound amazing...!!! Every time I hear them seems like a new first time experience. They do a exceptional job producing ULF. I almost feel guilty for buying 4...! 1 is enough, 2 for anesthetics but 4 in sealed enclosures are overdoing it. 7hz hitting you is an experience and if you can't hear it initially just keep listening.. You're actually tuning your ears with repetition and it's pretty smart to stay in tune with the earth and her rumbling...
3-4 projects will be complete in 2017 😁
More to come...
