So what's the difference between that and an IB?
An infinite baffle acts more like a sealed enclosure. The space behind the drivers is basically like a big box and there is no tuning frequency. As long as you have enough drivers and available excursion, IB can dip down to the single digits. A horn loaded sub acts more like a ported enclosure. The dimensions and length of the horn determine the tuning and you need a high pass filter around that tuning frequency to protect the driver.

What about transducers?
Behind the corner of the couch. It will be wedge shaped to fit in there. See my horrible drawing!

Thought about transducers and might try them someday. Right now my main focus is on mid-bass though. Not as enthusiastic about the below 20hz stuff as I am 20-200hz or so. If I had my own theater room then I would want it all!!! One day...

Lol I was expecting some stick figures lounging on the couch...

A nice dark wood to match the stand there might work.

So you have a projector too? Thought I saw a tv in one of your other pics.

And where are the Volt's? Or is this an old pic?

Yea, I have a motorized screen that comes down in front of the TV. It's an Epson 8100 projecting onto a 120" white screen. Want to eventually upgrade all of that as well.

Yea, that's an older pic. Newer pic attached.

Xmen was pretty good I thought. Could have been better, but it was a fun movie. I have to fight with the wife over volume every time we watch a movie...really wish I had a theater room so I could kick her out LOL! I keep arguing that the sound is much louder at a concert or a movie theater, but it never works

With the holidays coming up, I'll be out of town a lot. And a few other things popped up I need to take care of.

So most likely in mid-January. Maybe sooner if a some things line up.

But I'm itching for new speakers with ATMOS....

and maybe a couple 24" subs....

You know, we've been quasi-derailing this thread.

We should get back on topic and discuss plans for a GTG.
