Danley DTS-10 "Super Spud" DIY kit - Page 322

You could make it match the striping of the timbers and white stuff.

Croc doc, what do you miss if you turn off the SVS subs? I'm curious what they add?

I could try, but I would be afraid of the result. eek.gif

Yes they are still available-

HOWEVER In the last company meeting there was talk about stopping the kits and just offering the finished version.

If you want another-I suggest calling soon.

NO- I DO NOT have any idea on a time frame-so don't ask-it is not up to me. It may be a day or a month

Thanks for chiming in Ivan. It is nice to know the folks from Danley still drop in on occasion.

I hope Danley has sold plenty of these babies.

Hey Tony,

The Ultra’s really reinforce and add to the 60-80 Hz range. My room adds a lot of gain in the 40 Hz and below and the upper end needed a little boost to even out the response. I had the Ultra’s before I got the Danley’s and I told myself I would sell the Ultra’s if they didn’t sound good with the Danley’s. Well, they sound wonderful together, and complement each other nicely IMO. (If you remember, I posted graphs last year of 130 dbls at the listening position.) That is only during a demo, and one can only handle it for about 10 min.

Thanks Ivan. I am assuming they are about the same price they were in 2011?

Croc you're movie set up is no joke! I like headroom too.
post #9638 of 10012
Croc, I've had the same experience with a friend that has the Danley running with two other sealed subs. The forums say it shouldn't (or is not easy) be done, but it sounded great to me.

I am running mine with two sealed, bass bliss!

I ran 2 THT's with 4 sealed subs and it worked out great.

I think sealed subs are easy to integrate with horn subs, ported not so much.
post #9642 of 10012
I guess my memory is fading... redface.gif I thought it was sealed or ported.

They're not speechless. You're just suffering from temporary deafness.
post #9645 of 10012
You know you have done right when you can make another AVS member speechless who has tried many subs as well!

Lol…. I always offer my guests earplugs before we start, and I tell them to wave their hands if it gets too loud because there is no way I could hear them if they were yelling...

MK,

It was you that got me off the fence to get the Danley's....I was not sure they would add much, but since you highly recommended them I went for it, and have never regretted it! For that, I thank you!
It is funny that it takes multiple 18’s to equal the output of 1 DTS-10.
post #9648 of 10012
And the efficiency is what is the most impressive to me. I drive mine with < 1200w and it is ungodly.
post #9649 of 10012
I miss my DTS-10's and not because I don't have the output, it is because how 2 little 12's can produce so much in a huge box using so little power, impressive indeed! I have a 12 driver sealed system now using very robust 13's(much better than the 18's I have used) and there are effects I experience that I never did before except for one, the DTS-10. My system can do it louder if I want it to. My sealed 18's needed low end boost to achieve this effect but the DTS-10's does it right out of the box. I would love to get a pair again and run some THD numbers and compare. The DTS-10's dropped off at 8hz in my room and my sealed drop off at 5hz but that could just be my mic rolloff and I really get deeper with my sealed setup.

Wish I'd took a pic of my girl wearing the peltors during a few demos cool.gif Just about every demo while I was home last July it seemed to be Tron Legacy. From being ported into the grid to the end of the bike scene. Our setup must have huge room gain cause it doesn't lack one bit in the 60-80Hz range. Sometimes it's so much we run the xover for subs at 60Hz. Really should of spent more time with it to document REW to post our response and waterfall. I discard most of my thoughts of the net when in play mode.

Here's our rack. It's an open star case
The dts10s each have a bridged ep4000 running just about wide open. The house feels tied to the volume as you go up.

I agree…I really have been tossing around the idea of doing the LMS-R upgrade for even more output/headroom but at the cost of efficiency. Ricci says it’s a worthwhile upgrade, but it will cost as much as another DTS-10 kit which is why considered a 3rd.

I love Tron for demos, because it has a lot of bass in it. The movie Looper that just came out has a lot of LFE too. As they say, every room is different and mine boosts the low end. I have pretty even response with all parties playing together. I like the rack with the security camera images on the top. Looks slick…

You will lose some efficiency, but it would definitely like having a 3rd without using more space.

I like the idea of not taking up anymore room, I just wish the LMS-R’s were not so expensive though. (I would need 4 @ $370) Another bonus is the THD goes down. I will be able to feed each DTS 3600 watts @ 8 ohms which should be plenty. Here is a link to Ricci’s results: http://www.data-bass.com/data?page=system&id=2

No doubt, the LMSs are no cheapo driver. But, you get what you pay for there. I have two 18s and they are amazing.
At least it is not much more than the cost of another DTS as well. So, essentially you are buying another one, or at least the capabilities of one.
Damn, that is a lot of power to each cab. You will be rockin!!
I am not aware of a finer driver for any price.

I don't know what they were-but here is a link to the Danley facebook page-that has the price on the top

Anyone considering the LMS-R upgrade, there is one on Home Theater Shack currently for $200.

No, your memory isn't failing you yet, Tony. wink.gif

I know the guy you're talking about---he has two ported SVS subs running with the DTS-10. The last time I heard his system, it sounded great to me also.
post #9659 of 10012
Hey Tom! Good to see (hear / read) you here! And thanks for the vote of confidence. wink.gif

I wasn't aware of the Danley Facebook page. I encourage all of you to visit it! It looks as though Danley has been growing exponentially since first visiting our forum. All the more impressive that they cater to us, such a small customer base.

The video of the Jericho demo at Penn State is very impressive! Especially compared to the recording from the Georgia Dome (which unfortunately sounds like most any stadium I've been in).

Hey guys, How do I model a DTS-10 in winisd?
