I'm having a terrible time trying to compare potential new projectors against what I already have. My current projector is a Sharp DT-510, and it has begun failing. Other than the poor black...

I have a Behringer A500 I use for my L/R tower mains right now. They are big 4 Ohm WMTMW that I didn't want to test with my RX. The A500 puts out 2x300W at 4 Ohms of fanless power. Not the best in...

Does anyone have any thoughts as to how this compares to the THT loaded with a 12 (Or the THT LP)? I know it won't quite be up there with a horn with a 15. There are way more reviews of the THT out...

This is exactly what was happening. I upped the gains and played the scene back at the same in-room volume and it went just fine. Thanks!

I asked a similar question back in September. Among the responses I had one from Thomas-W, one of the IB sub gurus. He gave the impression that the motors in the Fi IB subs just aren't designed for...

As long as you can get the internal volume for the sub close enough, it should be fine. The only issue will be possibly limiting location possibilities. If the box portion is braced well and the...

How tall will the riser be? If it's tall enough, you could put a couple bass horns in it. I'm not up on the horn info, but there are a couple that use 10 inch subs I think that would fit in a 10-12...

The screen size is tbd. I'll play with it when the room is ready. Easy to make a big screen smaller than it is to make a smaller screen bigger.

Standard couches for now, if for no other reason...

The WMTMW towers in my sig are a good build. The dual 8 inch woofers in each are tuned to 30Hz. They're kind of wide, but they sound great.

I guess I should have mentioned that I already ran winisd simulations. Response curves and group delay are very similar. Power handling needs a bit more juice for the sealed box vs IB, as expected....

My goal is to go low. My room is small enough I don't need a whole lot to go loud. People hit very impressive levels with two of these in much larger rooms in an IB.

Since my theater build is taking so long, I've had lots of time to look at sub options. Right now, the Fi IB318 seems to be the best displacement-per-dollar by FAR.

My question is this: Will...

COOL. I wonder if an HF variant will follow? Too bad about keeping the same xmax, though (I'm guessing the same motor?). For a $250 sub, it seems lacking compared to others similar in price.

I'll give my two cents: The tweeter driver itself is sealed, so changing the shape/volume shouldn't affect it at all. And for the mids, since the volume of the chamber is the same, I don't think...

That Qtc of 1.785 seems quite high and the curve gets quite a peak on it at 50Hz or so. I'm thinking your enclosure needs to be much, much larger for that sub. The freq response curve should...
