No big deal right? Put 2 up front, and the other two in the back to go with my SDX-15 back there…
My dilemma is that I don’t have enough dedicated pre/pro channels (only two) to set the delay and EQ on each sub, or groups of subs (front L/R, rear L/R, and then SDX-15). The original plan was to have the four MFW’s equidistant from the LP up front, thus able to use the same time delay and same EQ’ing, then have the SDX-15 in the back corner with its own time delay, EQ’ing and gain settings. However, if I can’t keep the MFW’s on their own pre/pro channel, this plan won’t work.
The next idea would be to make some F20’s or F24’s, but I can’t get four to fit in my little room, and they’d render my SDX-15 useless…
So my options include,
-Trade my DEQ2496 for DCX2496 and have five individual subwoofers.
-Use my DEQ2496 and suck it up that I can’t EQ and time delay all five separate subs properly.
-Use my DEQ2496, sell two MFW-15s, one SDX-15, and build two F20/24’s…if I can even get those to fit.
For amplification, I have the Crown CE4000 and EP2500. I planned on using one channel of the CE4000 for the four MFW’s (250w/driver) and the other for the SDX-15 (1KW), then the EP2500 on my L/R’s.
*Side note* My wife won't care if I have five small sub enclosures since they will be in walnut, curved side walls, and piano black front/backs. The large horn subs might cause her to drink heavily.
*Side note #2* My 2 y/o won't be able to climb on top of the horn subs, but will be able to climb on top of the little sealed subs. I guess not too long ago he was on top of my Infinity Beta50 after using the infinity sub next to it as a step stool. He also knocked over the Beta-50, my Dynamic 4T's, Cerwin vega towers, bookshelfs on stands, fingers through tweeters, ball point pen on woofer cones, and small scratches on plasma screen using plastic sword. This guy is a hellion because his mom doesn't watch him while he's alone downstairs in my HT room. Ok done venting.
