Your most likely planning on parting your subs 4-5' RuneW? If so, that should still put you very close to the dual driver rig that I built. Headroom will not be a issue even though it's imo that a single 15" option will provide much more than what many realise.
"parting your subs 4-5' "? You mean to separate the twins? What kind of parent would ever do that?
Anyway, I know that my two subs (in my 4.5 x 6 meter home theater) will be overkill DeLuxe, but they have a second purpose. Each year we have a "guy evening
". I don't know what you call it, but you know, no females allowed. We rent this old "public house" out on the countryside and fill it with whatever we have that makes most noise and play 2-3 movies with some pizza in between. This has become a nice tradition and next year it's a ten year anniversary. Here's what we do:
1. Use 7-8 hours to rig the system (8 speakers, subs, cables, PJ whatever)
2. Watch 2-3 movies
3. Use 2 hours to dismantle the system
If this isn't crazy I don't know...
But we love it! Let's us play around with different solutions very often. The thing is, we try to get it louder and better each year and it getting hard to do that...
I won't bore you with more details, but my sono's mission this next march is to fill a large room (about 475 cubic metres (find your calculators...)) with kidney crushing bass, so they will have challenge in front of them
I happen to be the driving force behind this event, so I just had
to take steps to ensure proper bass for the 10 year anniversary... hence the sonos.
But good/loud bass at home won't hurt (or will it?) either
