If Brandon happens to make it up on the 2nd, maybe he could pick it up for you? I'm not YET really equipped for shipping this stuff, but since demand has been so strong, maybe sooner than later?

Haha, well the one thing I can be certain of is NOT needing to buy any more SI18s anytime soon. I'm thinking of swapping my D2's in the living room for D4s due to amp comparability with my inuke6000. I will have some (4) very fresh D2s for sale in the near future.

Do the subs come with pre-cut BB plywood dual opposed box pieces for gluing and screwing?

If there is room, I'll gladly swing by again on the 2nd

Honestly - I've already got several drawings down for DO 18s that could be cut quickly and assembled very quickly.

And I'll mark you down for the 2nd. Send me your email so I can add you to the list - communicating here via PM is awful lately.

I can attest that a SI18HT x 8 and SH-50 front stage combo sounds phenomenal!

These guys are a little smaller around ~7 cubes. They were built to fit 8 DO boxes right behind my screen. Ideally I'd add another cube if wasn't space limited (maybe another inch in the 22x22 direction. Ideal bracing will be leave no sections larger than 6-8" unbraced when covered by horizontal and vertical bracing.

Sorry sir. Your vote does not count. Owners bias!

That's like a manufacturer trying to defend a product that he produces. Of course he is going to think his product is the beezneez...but no one can take his word for it because of his stake in the product itself.

So, I'll go on record for you Mr. Beast... Danley front stage with octo 18's = ballz!

A few updates:

1) I designed/built a sub to be used in the rear of the room, behind the riser in a nearfield setup. This was more of an experiment, but turned out pretty well. These are 2 more SI 18 D4s. (for a total of 10 in the room right now) It's powered by one channel of a newly added Inuke 6000DSP and EQ'd currently by my minidsp.

Some pics of design, build, and install:

Some quick/dirty sweeps before EQ/distance settings/phase:

Rear subs only:


Front subs only


All subs


All subs after distances set and 4DB shelf applied at 20hz - NO smoothing used


Full range sweep, back row (used to have big nulls before all treatments) 1/24 smoothing

No smoothing?! That's just nuts. Very impressive Andrew.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

Thanks very much Scott! Wish you could make it out as well, should be a great time. A DIY-fest sort of.

Thanks Jim! I hadn't spent any time on 'real' EQ just yet - that is just a small shelf on the back end, but no cuts or other boosts. The back row really smoothed out a lot after this last round of treatments.

Also - Got a chance to swap out my klipsch surrounds with a pair of JBL Pro Cinema 8340s and the JBL mounts. I really like them so far with the 20 minutes of demo time.




Oh, and the amp rack is growing

What are the setting for the low end shelf? Was that to extend sub 20 Hz with the Amp? I have the same amp and would like to do the same.

Excellent job btw.

Me too man! I totally understand you wanting to save your travel dough for a trip out to Qatar though.
