Oh that's so tempting. I would love to convert my four MFW-15 sealed boxes to dual opposed. The damn things need to be chained down to keep them from walking across the room.

biggrin.gif How do you like the 4 you have now?

I couldn't be happier with them. Best bang for the buck HT upgrade I've ever done. I'm running them 3 to 5 dB hot and they have no trouble keeping up, even with my low power amp. I don't usually listed at reference though.

I have 2 dual opposed and they don't move at all.

Nice setup.

Rubber feet will keep them from walking around. I have to use it on my sub upstairs for the same reason and it's 140lbs lol

Thanks!
I get amazingly flat response with four boxes and no EQ. I need (want) more DIY speakers!

I'll probably staple some area rug underlay padding to the bottom feet. Should do the trick.

What size boxes do you have for yours petew?
post #98 of 100
The boxes are just a hair under 4 ft^3. I built them big to use a 145 watt per channel amp I had on my spare parts shelf. Surprisingly (to me at least), air pressure has a big effect on xmax for a given volume. We're at 5,200' here in the ABQ.

I haven't heard much talk about altitude's effects. So in theory do you need a smaller box at higher elevation, all else equal?
post #100 of 100
Yup, less air to compress, smaller box. There's a field to enter air pressure in winISD. I designed my bracing to let me cut another driver hole in the back baffle to go dual opposed, and I have plenty of box to handle two drivers.
