Did John supply the feet for those subs? If so, do you by chance know if he sells those?
I have to ask; can those mains really keep up with the new subs? Even though I think those are the top line from that company I would think you may start to look at a custom design for your mains and center (you know the never ending quest we are all on).
Yeah - 20 ft ceilings towards the rear of the room makes for a big space, so they fit in pretty nicely. I'm just not used to them yet... but I'm certainly not upset they are here
Yes John custom turns the aluminum legs, the length that came with these works perfectly for me to have put the speakon on the bottom of the sub and use the right angle kit to have the wire come out the side. He didn't send me the studs to mount the legs so I had to cut and polish some bolts to put the legs on, took me 10 -15 mins to do this, no big deal. You'd have to contact John for a price.
The S8's can belt it out, with the Be tweet and 7" mids, the bass drivers won't be doing much.... I can get pretty high SPL's but I'm not worried about them trying to keep up with the subs as much as I'm trying to get the Subs to fill the room / space. Trust me it (the bass) really gets lost quite easily - just never had enough output to fill this much room. Like I said before - these subs in this config will basically be just loafing about now, hardly working - I'll prob have them dialed down quite a bit, but the benefit to this is I will never - EVER have to worry about pushing the limits, they'll never come close, like the single driver config I have had in place, did to achieve what I was looking for in a room / basically whole house like this. The Plus side is I'll have endless amounts of super clean bass if I want to dial things up on the fly....

Of coarse I will be doing sweeps, Nuance is going to bring over his lappy with REW setup and we'll do another sit down to EQ everything. I'm very excited to get that going, but I'm not sure it makes sense to start that until I get the last box in, or we'll have to start over. Graphs will be posted here.
I'm planning on putting the last sub behind the TV, It'll be tight, but it will aid in centering the output of the "Main Sub", which will be crossed over pretty high - 120-150hz, the room response will decide exactly where... That single LMS under the picture window is x'd at 120hz right now and it slams pretty darn good, but throws off the room response for the other subs being off center. Placement behind the Plasma should correct that and add some corner loading as well.

Nothing special about putting the driver together, simply just lower the basket nice and gentle into the motor, line up the holes and insert screws, don't tighten them until they are all in by hand. Some wiggling of the basket helps a bit if a screw is stubborn... My fingers are like pliers so I had less issues then the little woman tightening them by hand. I would run the screws into the motor before assembly to make sure there are no rough threads from machining. None of my drivers came with a stainless allen, so you get to struggle against the magnet if yours are steel
Be sure not to drop the lock washer off the screw - it will instantly disappear in the bowels of the magnet area.... and it will be start over time.
