Gorilla, I really like those boxes you made! I remember having conversations with you about your router when you first got it. Seems like you are putting it to really good use! What are the dimensions of the dual 18" box? I forgot, but do you make flat packs for sale too?

Man that's a tick front baffle, is that four 3/4" pieces making up the baffle?
Heh, I told my wife they would be used as drink holders / end tables. : ) They are triple baffle - 3 X 3/4".

Thank you sir. This one is 26" high, 42" wide, and 18" deep. I have made flat packs for members on several occasions. The biggest issue currently is shipping - I've had more than one package severely damaged from mishandling.

Looking good! What amp(s) are you using to drive these new additions?

Got any dual opposed ~8 cubic feet flat pack boxes for HT18s laying around for this Saturday?

Using 2 X inuke6000s and 2 X Peavey IPR7500s in total. 3 x 20A circuits.

No DO flat packs right now, but give me a few weeks and I'm sure I could whip something up. I have to redo my bleeder board on the machine quickly before I cut anything else.

What all subs are you driving with those amps besides the subs that you just posted?

I guess I should run 4 20amp circuits in my theater to keep up

Can't wait to hear all your beasts on Saturday

I would run 4-5 in total if you plan on getting crazy. I run 3 for the low end, 1 line for the sherbourn, another circuit (shared) for the receiver and accessories, and another (shared) for the projector. The low end is just stupid now, although going with ported or horns you could get away with far less power required.

Man the bass must be incredible...and it was already fantastic before the additional subs.

I bet distortion at reasonable listening levels must be approaching 4 zeros and definitely far below the threshold of detection by human hearing.

Current Gear: PJ – BenQ PE7700; Receiver - Onkyo TX-SR805; Blu Ray - OppoBDP 103; Turntable - Dual CS-515 w/ Ortofon Super OM10; Amplifiers - OdysseyKhartago, Adcom GFA555, QSC RMX 1850HD; PEQ - Behringer FBD2496 [Near FieldSub], miniDSP 2×4 [Flanking Subs], REW; Speakers - 4 Pi (w/B&C DE250/JBL2226H) × 3 [LCR], Yamaha Crap × 2 [surrounds], Exodus Audio Maelstrom-X18" sealed sub [near field sub], LAB-12 based ported sub tuned to 22 Hz x2 [flanking subs, XO set at 40 Hz]

I've still got quite a bit of tweaking to do to get everything even close to ideal/optimal, but even in a rough state there is a fair amount of headroom.

Understatement of the year. That's like saying a Hyundai might accelerate rapidly if you dropped the 700 HP Lambo Aventador engine in it.

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

Seems like a fair assessment.

+20.5 anyone?

We'll find out on Saturday I suppose what's feasible. You up for a distorted web cam viewing? LOL

Some measurements from the new sub setup after spending another hour or so playing with it tonight:

All 14 subs running, sweeps taken at 8 different points (6 listening positions and front/behind couches) in the room, level matched. NO smoothing, 2 eq settings: 6DB shelf <20hz and -4db cut at 60hz peak.

Kicking myself as I forgot to attach the legend before going upstairs and exporting front my netbook, but here we go:



The 3-4 sweeps that have the "peak" around 45hz are the back row, the others were taken L/C/R front row and in front of couch.

Meh, not bad.

Thank you J! I'm sure the most output would come from all subs stacked up front, but this is fun from a tactile standpoint.

Thank you! If I knew there was interest I'd grab some updated pics of the gym as we've got some new equipment now. Are you in the NE? Where do you train?

Edit: Holy crap the gym pics are old! Pretty much everything in the room has changed since, even the paint. I should get some new pics up.

Glad to see you got that sorted out, I find it WAY better then the AVS mobile site. It also makes it a lot easier to up load pictures right from your phone too.
