Joining them are six KYD-designed UberSub infrasonic subwoofers, each comprised of dual 24" drivers facing each other in custom-machined housings; that's 12 drivers in all. As verified during four days of testing and system calibration, the UberSub system met its target of reproducing bass down to 5 Hz at 120-130 dB with less than 3% total harmonic distortion.
This text and the pictures of the subwoofers caught my eye ... so here it is ...



Flat to 5hz in a room that size 120-130db?
Just incredible, I'd love to be there for a bass clips demo disc run through.

Wanting to keep the walls dark but to not also have the room be oppressively dark is a big debate that results in a trade-off somewhere. But why not have a black material on a motorized roller (like a motorized roller blind) that comes down when the movie starts? BOOM.

Amazing theater by the way. Probably one of the best home theaters I've ever seen.

I've been on this site for a long time now and have followed hundreds of peoples build threads, but this one really seems to stand apart. Everything about it really seems so perfectly thought out. It must be great to watch a movie in there. Great job!

I remember going on a good 9 month movie hiatus when I started my build. That was tough, but feasting on all of those movies was a payoff totally worth the diet.

I'm in awe over what you have created. Just, wow.

Rob, congratulations! Given what Keith's team was able to accomplish with my MUCH more modest project, I can only imagine what a spectacular experience your theater must provide. Enjoy it!!

HT of the Month: The Hahn Theater

Quote:
Actual room: 34' (L) x 28' (W) x 16' (H)

Apparent room (after baffle wall, fabric concealing speakers and acoustic treatments, isolated slab floor, and seating risers): 28.5' (L) x 26' (W) x 13' (H) at the front, 29' (L) x 24' (W) x 9.5' (H) at the back


Quick approx math shows this room total volume is fricking huge: 14,592 cubic feet, even the apparent room size of 7,875 cubic foot definitely means this is truly a Cinema located in a home, not a Home Theater from acoustics viewpoint.

The small room acoustics strategy and application that most here have studied and applied don't apply here.

Gotta love the "no need for buttkickers" mentality, you want nearfield? Heck we will put (2) 24" subs right below the middle seats of rows 2 and 3, hows that for ya?

From reading Mr. Hanh's build thread 2nd row is 19 feet from the 19 foot screen, so when framed for 2.35:1 scope right at THX optimal.

Absolutely incredible theater, Rob. It is not only beautifully magnificent, but also inspirational. I greatly appreciate your effort with this endeavor and your love for the art of movie making. God Bless.....and may you enjoy it for a very, very long time.

Thank you! Well Geoff Franklin mapped out all the _insane_ amount of cabling through the theater (and rest of the house) because everything is run by Crestron. Geoff has the finest people I know to organize the miles of cable. When I get a chance, I'll upload a picture of our rack room - it's beautiful (I mean the wiring is beautiful).

To answer your question, yes there is a diagram (but I haven't seen it in a while). Frankly troubleshooting my system isn't something I could do - it's _way_ too complicated. They have the ability to log in remotely which works to fix most issues (unless it's a hardware problem).

I would really like to hear more about the bass performance, and what led you to your subwoofer choice. Gravity must have been AWESOME!

Jeff.
Math? Me neither!

So there are 6 UberSubs (infrasonic subwoofers) behind the screen. Each Uber houses (2) 24" drivers which face each other in one enclosure, so (12) 24" drivers in all.

Then there are (2) 24" drivers under each center seat in Rows 2 & 3 (one driver under each seat). So a total of (14) 24" UberSub drivers.

In addition, there are (8) KYD SHOC24 subwoofers in the side and rear walls. The drivers in them are 13.5". The SHOCs are a KYD/JL joint product development that’s made by JL for KYD on a limited production run basis.

So that's where the 22 subwoofer count comes from.

Bass performance: Pants flappingly intense but not strained at all. They energize the room in a cushion of low frequencies, and they respond very quickly. During the design phase, I told Keith I am a mid bass fan - I love infrasonic bass, but I really need a mid bass cushion. I also wanted those 2 subs under the center seats. He ran tests and found that they didn't affect the overall sound field negatively, so we put them in.

I wanted this because years ago I had one of those refrigerator-sized subwoofers from Snell, laying on its side, directly behind my couch - and it was awesome! I also had a Triad sub to the right of my TV, but it was the Snell that made "Jurassic Park" scary.

"Gravity" _is_ awesome. It' the first film I put on as a demo, not only for subwoofer performance, but also for the delicate Atmos soundtrack which sounds stunning in my theater, partly because of the extremely low noise floor in the room. Every single micro detail is rendered perfectly.... It's just amazing.

Absolutely amazing theater!! I'm in Awe! So the 24's under your seat, do they pretty much give you the effect that you were wanting? I'm a huge fan of having a driver very close to me as well, but have never experienced one under the seat, only right behind.

Your room just turned the Dolby Theater into a "Panel and Soundbar Experience". From the subs under the seat to the 19 footer, this is just ridiculous! It's nice to see someone with this type of money to spend that actually gets it.
