If the DTS-20 is that impressive to you, then you probably will find satisfaction
with the text book 'EBS' sonosub design using a $300 woofer and $300 amplifier.
You can make one and try it out. If you are happy, then sweet. Your quest
completed. But if the sub is not outputing as much as you want, then build
another. figure out how many EBS subs can fit in the room so you can figure
out what the upgrade path is -- just in case -- you need a few more.[DTS-20] has an absolutely unreal sound quality to it
Why is the DTS-20 good if the sound is un
real ? Don't you want
real sound instead ?
/end jokeparticularly in the mid bass region from 30 to 80hz that I seriously doubt I could duplicate.
Bass horns have than effect on people. They output strong bass and midbass.
The DTS-20 isn't the only design that can do this. A text box bass horn will
do the same thing. Problem is that most people don't know how to build them,
but if you look hard, you can learn how. It's a more advanced DIY project.
The bass array using lower cost woofers can do the job of sonosub + bass horn
mainly because you are using alot of woofers, the more you use, the easier
it is to hit the goal.
