Almost. got some bracing done and one of the cutouts done this last weekend I wanted to work on them but I told my wife i would put up a privacy fence when the theater was done. so I put up a bunch of fencing and started putting the French doors in for the library. So I've been super swamped with projects . I'm determined to have 2 fully finished and in the room by the end of this weekend.

I'd love to see some bracing pics. I'll eagerly check your thread.

My wife would probably greatly appreciate this idea. She's like isn't there enough bass all ready. I keep telling her there's never to much bass lol

If your wife thinks your qsc's are enough bass already she is in for an awakening. Lol.

Yeah, if the one wasnt a horn and you could do both in WinISD I could prob whip it up.... but I've never used hornres and dont know how you'd graph the two using the same program, or if if thats even possible....
Yeah, but I think it's safe to say the submaximus as a pair will do way better then for ds4's in marty type boxes.

That's the thing with these LLT kinda enclosures. They take up so much room! Sealed would be so easy. But the visceral impact just isn't there.

Agreed, I'm more curious as to the lower end of things around 20hz and how close the gap narrows below that.......

So I've been tinkering in the theater, and I found a way to make the ceiling disappear above the screen. 2" velvet tape on the frame, and I've used super spray glue on the velvet and the ceiling tile. Upholstered the velvet to the tile and popped them back in. It's amazing how it now disappears. I'm gonna do at least one more row.

I've been wanting to do this for a while.
Can you take a couple more pictures while doing the next row.

Yes I can. It's super easy. The only thing to see is if the fabric eventually falls off the tiles.

I think you should start a Submaximus thread so we can help you sort out this driver choice 😀

So here is where I'm at in the sub department. I may eventually switch over to submaximus. But for now, I'm going ahead with my cyclops build to sit on top of my martys up front. I also need to wrap up all the other projects around the theater and house I've started, before I make another big move. The only big thing left in the theater is my equipment rack. I'm looking forward to completing that.
So my mind began to change when I was reading through some threads about horn subs and read about a gentleman who finished his, only to have the police show up. I'm probably right on the cusp of that right now as is. I might not want to push it much further.
I watched Rouge One last night. I sat at my bar in the middle, my wife and another couple sat in the theater chairs. I had a stupid grin plastered on my face the whole time. I love these titans. The sound was excellent. It really did fill the room. I'm looking forward to every movie I see now more than ever before.

I finally have gotten around to building my screen flanking frames to be covered with velvet. 1st experience with a creg jig on loan to me. Awesome tool. So easy to use. I love how the frame came out.

I finally had time to setup my new (used) xpa-3. These titans really came alive with the extra power. There is as much bass now as my old svs pb-12 pluses used to put out. Just not as low of bass of course. The mid-bass is slamming my chest and I love it. I love these titans.

Crazy isn't it how much midbass and even bass these speakers put out. I had a bassboosted bassnector song playing at reference and couldn't believe what I was hearing for what I spent on them. Plus there so clear as we'll. Congrats on these I'm sure your really happy with them.

I bet these really benefit from the extra power down low. I can't imagine what they are capable of with the max rated power!!

Yes the bigger amp really made a huge difference down low. And I am dying to find out what these could do with 1000 watts or more.

I am loving these speakers. It's been a whole new world after I've been sending them more juice. New favorite scene for midbass- the motorcycle chase in MI rouge nation. While I watched it, I was gripping my blanket like a little child. I guess I was into it. Lol. The midbass was amazing me.

I am totally jealous of you guys with these titans and QSC's. They both have a giant, smooth, detailed sound to them. They are awesome. I can't wait to hear these at the GTG. They will have to stay upstairs though. I'm afraid if we tried them in the theater I would have huge buyers remorse lol!

Come on Brian! If you like them that much, you can grab a trio. I have to admit, listening to music is awesome. I have had to get up to put my ear next to the surround speakers to make sure they weren't on. The musical nuances of voices and instruments seem to come from everywhere.

Front stage wall finally done. My bottom panels are a/t black fabric so it doesn't block any sound. I love how it looks now. Clean. No drivers showing. Now when unsuspecting people sit down they have no idea what's going to hit them. I'll include a before pic and an after.

awesome!! Yeah pretty crazy how much firepower is hidden behind there lol. Do you see any reflection from the non painted parts of your speakers through the screen material?

Is that DMD fabric or something else? I think I'm going to use DMD because of the ports firing out front on the subs.

I have not been able to see any reflections from behind the screen. But like you said, if I ever do I won't be able to unsee it. Lol.
It's just Amazon "black acoustic fabric". Nothing fancy. It's nice though. Very transparent to air and durable. I was able to really stretch it tight over my frames.
I'm also adding my last two DS4's behind my screen on top of the martys. They will be in cyclops 18 boxes. That should do it. No more speakers. Well, maybe two more atmos channels. And I still have to move my equipment to a shelf in the back under the stairs. Wish I had more time.
