At least size wise it looks that way. You need to hurry up with your new speakers. Your current mains have an inferiority complex.
Heheheh. That they do! That they do...

a big part of it was because he was wed to a single design and poopooed everything else. same with bosso now.
mr. danley never said his design was universally optimal. he asked some folks what they would like and built a cab that delivered on that.
i kind of wish that we could get away from the "one is universally better than the other" type discussions. different folks have different goals and are willing to make different tradeoffs.
and scott, how on god's good earth are you going to be able to create a sealed configuration that will keep pace with your new mains? won't you need about 4 sealed subs to keep up with *each* main? pretty soon your room will look like TheEar's. not that that is a bad thing...:-)
Maaaannnnn, I have no clue.
Preferrably, there WOULD be quad 18's per main but that just aint gonna work for me and my pocketbook.
Not sure how I'd fit it all in here anyway.
Not sure I need to have the LFE system be so much more capable than these mains. I mean, obviously that would be the point but when quad 18's sealed can do in excess of 120dB's at 20hz... how much more do I need? Maybe a crap ton! I have no idea yet. I mean, I still have gas in the tank with my dual LLT's. It's just that I am not happy with the mains I have now and they cannot keep up with the subwoofer system.
Having mains that can exceed the capability of my subwoofer system may be what I needed all along. Maybe I won't even need quad subs. I don't push reference level often (granted its because my speakers limit out when approaching this level...) but maybe I will more often when I have capable speakers.
Just going to trust my gut that this system will kick ass either way I go.
Btw, I may even get another two RLp18's if Sound Splinter can get around to having them manufactured again.
