Wire them in series and you get 6.

The trouble is you really need to know the T/S parameters to know how to best utilize them.

That is probably the best bet here.

I already have 2 cabinets, 4.0cf tuned to 20hz, each with an EHQS 12".... each box wired together (series) then connected to a PE 240w. I wonder if I'll see any performance gain with these m & K's.

See, that is the problem. No, you will not have any performance gain. They probably have less xmax than your current drivers and without the T/S parameters you have no idea at what the freq response/tuning you will get.

Personally, I would save your money unless you just want to experiment for fun.

nice Ikea table Had two of them, but one didn't hold up to my 280lb friend thinking it's a sitting arrangement.

So... do those boxes keep up with your mains? :P

for the most part, yes. The subs are not great for music...however I listen to alot of drum and bass, which they do great. Those little satellites are the Klipsch Quintets...the original ones. I have a Harman/Kardon AVR 45 for the receiver.

M&K sub drivers have almost as much Xmax as a good midrange.They move lots of air...for a midrange.

For $20...good deal for an MBM module,these are best used 30Hz up.

Why's that?

maybe because he has them turned up to loud and they overpower his HTIB mains, which would destroy the overall SQ when playing music....

I use to have an M&K before my SVS. The M&K is a very accurate and tight musical sub, but it didn't go as flat and as low as the SVS. WIth the SVS, I did lose a little bit of the tight bass.

For that price I think you should play with them and see what you get.

M&K use to be the SUB to have for music.

Music = low output and extension
