Need help with sub configuration
With summer coming to an end and the work in the yard complete I'm refocusing on my theater build. I have finally pulled the pin on 8 Volt 10's, received them last week. My first experience with a package forwarder and DIY, thanks Erich!
I'm now thinking subs. I'll be going with Mach5 - Mark is a great, personable guy and Canadian. I've been debating between 2 18s' or 21's, I think I've settled on larger. I have 12' of width, 6' of height and 21" of depth behind the screen to play with. Before I try and I'll emphasis the word try, to model them for my room, can I open the ported vs. sealed debate .... again? The room is completely sealed, 20'x15'x8'. I'm not looking for an involuntary bowel movement or bleeding ears, just solid low end and wow factor. I know this is a tough "it depends" question, I guess I'm looking for those who have been down either road and some of the lessons learned that might help me with the decision.
