Could use some quick advice though.


The kids and I are having a hard time convincing their mother of the need for a second one to "smooth the response."


Any info to turn her before she notices the second SI D4 on credit card bill would be greatly appreciated!
How about
1) lets the first one not work so hard so it will last longer
2) 1st sub needs a friend
3) visually balances the room
4) you will take your wife shopping for shoes !

Shoe shopping should be worth a Gjallerhorn!

Is there any data on the Ultimax-18 in these enclosures? I was looking at doing 4 x 18" subs for my new theater room, which is 20'x16'. I was planning on putting them in the front, between my Klipsch RF83 mains. I have a 135" screen and will be sitting ~14 feet away.

Thit arrangement limits me on how tall the subs can be, as if I have a wall of subs across the front I still need to fit my center channel (Klipsch RC-64) between the screen and the subs. What do you guys think about this arrangement? From what I can see given the enclosure size I'm after I may be better off putting UXL-18 drivers in a Martycube.

Any/all advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Ultimax will not work well in a martycube . Too small. It would work well in full marty or even minimarty .

That's too bad. Looks like a great driver, but the output and space saving characteristics of the UXL-18 sure seem worth the extra money!

If your looking for a cab for your new ultimax 18" the minimarty will do just fine.

Hello Chaluga I'm gonna be interested in two Marty Sub packs in a few months. Had two questions.

1. Referring to the dimensions of the full Marty, 2'x2'x48", is the 48" for the height?aka 2ft width and depth with 4 ft tall? If so that'd be perfect.

2. Will the Dayton UM-18 work in the full Marty?

Thanks a lot bud

Edit. Nevermind question 2 I just seen the above post.

How's the down fire ported box coming?

I think Donny's away camping till Friday so you might not hear from him. As far as I know the downward firing Marty worked great and that guy the bought it was very happy with it.


That thread got closed down because he was selling something, I can see both sides of that coin but feel the same as you.

So I was talking with Donny and he mentioned that he's going to lower his prices on his flat packs so I just thought I'd post to let you guys know.


Single Martycube is now $240 and a pair is $450. A single mini Marty is $270 and a pair would be $480.
So that's pretty good savings, I guess he was able to get some better prices on materials.

Suggestion for one of those reserved posts: Total cost analysis to build sub + amp + other stuff.
Example: I built a DIY ported sub, DIYSG flat pack 4 cu ft 12" Ultimax sub ported box build, $686 actual, posted my total cost there.
Quote:
Total running cost of project: $686
$200 driver + $140 flat pack + $240 amp + $40 ports +$34 Auto Sensing switch + $12 fan mod + $10 magnetic grill guides + $6 binding post cup +$4 Neutrik NL4FX Speakon connector
2nd sub would be added at $412, as dsp amp can power 2 subs, so total cost = $1064 for 2 of these
Makes it clear to people total cost and scaling cost going from 1 to 2 subs , which amp to choose, etc.

How hard is it to eq subs via the inuke DSP? If I went DIY would I need to purchase a mic and download REW to calibrate them properly? I'm more of a plug n play sort of guy. I don't want to spend hours measuring tinkering etc........

Those who want to know down to the dollar the total price don't order from me. They would be making it all themselves.

You can calibrate with an spl meter. It does take a couple of hours to get it right.

I got my two minimartys built an have them roughly dialed in. So far I'm liking how they sound. With the panels on an the screen up you can't even tell they are there. They shook the room so much I had to build a shock absorber for my projector mount to keep it from vibrating.

Its the UXL-18 driver. I thought when I ordered it that I requested a blank dust cap but I guess I didn't. I have an svs pc 12 plus laying on its side behind my chairs on my platform for a near field sub an the two mini's up front. So far I am loving the combination. Since taking this picture I had to move the projector to the back wall. I've also put up quite a few sound absorption panels.
Oh an the 1099's sound awesome.
