Tks for your reply. If i can DIY why not. The thing is i am not technically sound....plus i live in asia (singapore) and am not sure if i can get anything done here. As in tmost probably i will need to buy the parts somewhere in states...moreover shipping here would pose a hassle..worst still what if D.O.A??
My living area is approx 5520mm by 7680mm with height about 2600mm (sorry need to calculate in mm cos im not well verse with ft. cubic etc etc..
However my actual speaker placement will be within the highlighted area...where my projector and speakers will be placed. Horizontally within 5520mm by 3360mm (again highlighted area)
have been to various stores in singapore to listen to subs but i keep having a gut feel they are being tuned to best suit their ambiance and environment and it would not be a fair test.
as im saying i am looking at supercube 8000 (but some members saying is cant go as low as 20 or 16Hz i cant rem... (and im not technical), Some says DD18 velodyne is good some says not but its really been difficult for me.
after more search..i arrive at this MASSIVE DIYers subs and speakers that literally blew myself away... (esp the water tank sub which i think i saw, man im speechless) PLUS having DIY is like 1/3 cheaper?? OMFG!!
seriously i am looking in long term as in am not going to change speakers or subs for quite some time due to over spending (which my wife dislike) therefore i would really like something good that suits my environment at the correct price tag.
Stuffs im using are Panasonic AE8000, 106 inch screen, Pioneer SC-LX86, KEF R700, KEF R300 (as surround), KEF R600C... still lacking a sub..
Hopefully more kind souls here will rec me something worthwhile that gonna last me another 5 yrs down the road perhaps...
Is there any more subs that can be recommended? other than Vendolyne DD18 and Supercube 8000...
If its DIY, what are the brands i should look out for, the size, the dimension on the cabinet for subs etc etc..
lastly please be kind to me as i am trying to absorb as much info as i can and learn along the way. even for the above rig, i happen to test only once and bought it without hesitation. and hope it serves me well...
Edited* roughly glance though DIY sub page... even DIY got so many brands to choose from... :'(Edited by winwinc81 - 8/26/13 at 8:42am
