My iPhone 6 works great in my theater. However, you have to have enough light, but usually available light is enough.

Finished up the subs last night. Now i just need to find time to connect all the parts back together. It won't be this weekend though, I'm going out of town on a snowboarding trip. Maybe next weekend we can make some sound up there and if I'm lucky maybe watch a movie!

So that brings the subwoofage to 8 MFW-15s(Sealed) and 1 Maelstrom 21 running off 3 EP4000s. I'm looking forward to the increased output and seeing what I can get on the FR.

I'm going with a classic Toole/Harman sub layout with subs at each midpoint of each of the four walls.

Its going back wall. I might do a low pass on that one somewhere like 50-60Hz depending on how it sounds.

The two duratexed MFW cabs are going up front behind the screen, hence the forward firing woofs. I'm either gonna co-locate them in the middle or spread out to the 1/4 points of the front wall just depending on how it measures.

It should be a noticeable improvement. Two sealed dual opposed did a decent job in my room on a single 20A line. This upgrade included two extra 30A lines, two Extra EP4000s, and 4 more sealed MFWs.

The room is pretty small at only 2300 cubic feet.

Nicks,

Any chance you have the dimensions of your cabinets for your sealed MFW-15s ?

I know you had the awesome cutsheet for the ported MFW15 clones that I followed.

Hey Chris,

I shot for 5 cubic feet total or 2.5cubes per driver. Im traveling on a little vacation and the forum sucks on my phone.

I got your pm and i can send you some panel sizes once i get back home.

You thinking about doing some sealed? Its def easier than those MFW clones. I think they had like 20+ pieces in there with the folded port and all!
