4800 W RMS (9600 W peak) and AllDSP PEQ built-in. Cab size: 40" x 46" x 24".

Nathan's comment on the performance was that it's "essentially equal to 4 18.0's under ~30hz and 3 18.0's on the top end". I'll post a FR chart for it in the Funky Waves thread after it's EQ'ed.

That is impressive specs! What is the price on one of those?

This picture deserves to be re-posted a few times. Holy balls man, that's the best looking subwoofer I've ever seen. I'm mesmerized looking at the side of it, much like the cat in the post after yours. No AT screens allowed with that in the room.

Now.... you have to get another one right? smile.gif

It'll be the big brother to my 18.0 -


I'm really looking forward to meeting Nathan & Mark at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest that starts this Friday in Denver. Too bad they couldn't just load it in their truck & deliver it in person!
post #2408 of 2536
Ok, just stop it with your pretty boy subs. My ugly black boxes are getting jealous!! smile.gif

Seriously though, nice taste in finishes - make sure you show final pictures when the new sub is setup in the room and integrated with your current sub.

Plain and simply.....BAD A$$

Nathans subs are pretty, that is for sure. It also doesn't hurt that they perform as good as they look.

In the last few years I have gone from a paradigm ps1200, to this ED A7-600:



I have since gone down the rabbit hole into higher end offerings...






It started out as one of Nathans original designs, using the Aura NS18. That driver met its demise mad.gif and was replaced with the LMS-U. I later had Nathan build a twin box and added another.

I haven't decided yet, but I think I may have a couple more made. I am actually considering having a couple horns built to house my LMS-R 15's, with a matching finish to these. I am afraid of the cost, but am excited for the result...

Or....

Have Nathan build you two Gjallerhorns for the LMS-U's you currently have. Will give you roughly the same output as 8 sealed LMS-U's from 12-32Hz IIRC.

I mean, it's going to be large boxes...but since you brought up horns....just thought I'd throw that out there.

A pair of Gjallerhorn's with a funk burl finish would....be....epic...
post #2414 of 2536
Nathan is probably the only person alive that could make a Ghorn look good!
post #2415 of 2536
These last couple of ones are rather hard to follow. But this is a great thread to read and see what every one at all level are proud off.

I recently finishing build, and painting these two new enclosures for my Soundsplinter RL-p15" from some diy sound groups flat packs.

Here some pics....

Those came out very nice! How do they sound? I've never even heard of a Soundsplinter driver before. On their website they sure look potent.
post #2417 of 2536
Thanks for the applause smile.gif

My Soundsplinter drivers are about 5 years old. They were popular around then. It's my understanding that they were OEM'd from TC sounds.

I previously had them in a single dual front facing box, which was a bit smaller and never painted just raw MDF. With the two separate enclosures the bass seem smoother and less boomy, likely due to the improved placements to help moderate room modes. These things can go a lot louder than I can to take them with an Beringer EP25000 (aka EP4000, but with no resale value). They can be a pant flapping good time if I wanted. I am quite happy for the results!

Although I still should get some equipment to do proper room measurements, to ensure I am not missing anything.

After posting that I did a little poking around and found out that Soundsplinter went out of business about 2 years ago. Apparently the drivers were indeed OEMed from TC Sounds, and it seems like some type of "financial issue" occurred between the two companies which is why Soundsplinter was unable to continue. From what I was able to ascertain the owner, a guy named Mike, went on to start his own brewery, so he got out of the audio world entirely. His drivers appear to have been very well liked, and considered by most to be an excellent value. Real shame someone like that went under.

+1 Yes the drivers were quite respectable and Mike was very good to deal with. I think in the end he decided he needed a more steady income if I remember correctly?

First off, kudos to these beautiful looking subs, should be a lotta proud people out there!
I am in process of building (2) more subs, these will be used for my living room 5.1 HT, both will be 12" Ultimax Ported 4 cu ft box powered by a iNuke3000 DSP, and you've inspired me to seriously consider some veneer instead of just black.

Second, a "secret" 11.1 person found in this part of AVS.
There is an active thread directly related to 11.x systems, have you shared your thoughts there?
Moving past 7.1(5.1) into 9.1(11.2) upgrade your HT room via AudysseyDSX / DolbyPL IIz / DTS Neo:X™

And finally, my little contribution to this thread.
IB Line Array 4 x 15" AE drivers, plus 2 "helper" subs with SI drivers, 18" in 4 cu ft sealed cab and 15" in 3 cu ft sealed cab.

^^ Very nice.
I have seen lots of pictures here and drooling all over my desk with most of folks' set ups. The question I have is that after reading threads after threads about subs location, REW, etc..., I have seen more folks place their dual subs in the front wall between the LR or 8 subs on the front wall which I plan to do the same for my dual. Does this postion usually sound best for dual subs system? They do look good that way for sure. I know all room is different but at the same time I am curious to see there are more folks place their dual subs that way especially for those with a dedicated HT room. Thanks.

More than likely people put them up there for the available space and looks. Some people actually take measurements and put the subs where they measure best. Every room is different and the only way to know if you are getting your money's worth is to measure.

Subs being on the front wall is one of the better spots to put them without measuring. If you can't measure, do a sub crawl test.

It seems aesthetics determine where subwoofers are placed more so than where they might sound the best. That's especially true when WAF considerations come into play.
post #2427 of 2536
In my case I really do not have much of a choice. I can only place them where they are right now if I want them to be on the front wall. They sound pretty good.

^^ Have you tried to spread the subs out more or in more to see if it makes the difference? I have heard that a few inches can make a difference (that what she says, wink.gif)

A few inches makes a difference when the wavelengths produced at most a few feet. Subwoofer wavelengths range from 14 feet at 80 Hz to 56 feet at 20Hz.

Move one to the back wall. With both up front they both excite the same cancellation mode reflections off the rear wall.

As often as not what looks the best sounds the worst. There comes a point where you have to choose which is more important.

Thanks for educating us on this. Question: If I put one upfront which is about 11' from my MLP and one in the back which is about 3' from my MLP, then run Audessey set up (MuttiXT) to level match, the sub near me would use less sub amp power than the one upfront to produce the same level at MLP which means the one upfront would need to work harder to produce the same spl as the rear. That is not a good thing, isn't it? How would I best calibrate them (same exact subs) so that they work equally to produce same spl then? Thanks Bill.
