The Volt-6 is the sleeper model. No one expects it to do what it can do. :D

Those might work for Atmos speakers. We'd have to ask MTG90 if an extra crossover part needs to be added.

I read your original post but wasn't sure exactly what you meant. If you're considering using the Cinema-10 for surrounds, I'd say that's some pretty crazy overkill. ;) For surround speakers it...

Did you solder to the tinned tips of the inductor, or did you cut the ends off? In the picture it's hard to tell on the large iron core inductor.

Did you read the 'Assembly Tips' page on the site?

You forgot to mention his Infinity mains. ;) The problem with that setup is likely big ported 18's not matching up to mains without enough midbass to keep up. That's not a speaker issue, that's a...

You've got two big ported 18's. Big subs.....means you need big midbass or your system will sound very unbalanced.

No different than having three big commercial QSC or JBL speakers matched up...

I've never worried about Bondo on the seams. I just use a roller and paint the whole thing with a 50/50 mix of water and wood glue then sand smooth. Maybe hit the edges twice. I've actually used...

I might have a spare one of those if needed. I can't imagine what UPS does to inflict that much damage to those.

Yours was shipped quite a long distance from Ohio to Ireland, so maybe something got damaged along the way. I can get you another woofer.

Don't over spray the glue and get it on the outside!! I've always just used the wood glue to stick the stuff to the inside walls.

I'd say 1099's or 1299's up front, Volt-8's or Volt-10's for everything else, including Atmos.

Yes, they are completely different crossover parts and the layout would be different. If not, that would certainly push me to get boards made up and included in the kit.

So going by the programs that figure port velocity, would a 6" Precision Port work okay with a RS-18 in a 6.5cuft enclosure? Are the programs figuring in the 'allowance for masking content'?
