Hi Matt,

22" tall would be no problem. I'd maybe flip it so the ports are up and the woofer is down. You want to couple the woofer to the floor up to at least 350hz. So that would be how to...

Hi Ippo / Viktor,

I'd like to help but don't know that design. Hopefully someone will help you with an answer. I saw your questions on the diysoundgroup forum also without much success. :(

If it's the same thing, I found a 10" woofer to be the largest I would use with it. I thought an 8" woofer would be more appropriate. It's very narrow, though deep. The depth to width ratio is high....

Looks identical to the CSS planar 2, even the specs. Which I've used and found to sound very good.

It's really hard to say based on those graphs. Sometimes audessay does weird things like that that. I'd probably check the polarity on the woofers because it's easy to do. Just connect a battery to...

I think it would be fine but difficult to repeat at that distance. Perhaps 6" would be nearfield enough to see the differences but not so close that 1/8" matters.

Personally, I would line them lightly. But on a subwoofer it's not a big deal. If you cross at 100hz or something you might start to hear the absence of stuffing, which would just be a bit boxy,...

You could certainly experiment with that if using two, or put both on the floor.

If using a single, the recommendations I'm posting here are designed to take advantage of floor loading.

The most reliable and safest way to determine polarity is impulse response.

They need to be on the floor but beside is fine. I'll doublt check the horizontal lobing though. For the MTM a 150ish hz XO might be better. I'll look into it.

That's what I meant, they built a prototype to make it a reality. But I wasn't sure how much they helped prior, sounds like none. you reminded me of so many people we never see anymore.

True, the .1 part doesn't work well. That's just the discrete channel. I certainly agree 6 subs is a worthy pursuit. But they can all be driven from .1

That looks like a good product ;) It's a hair small but could work for someone who can't build. Just a little less port output due to the size.
