I currently have a 5400 + 2 VMP build that has plenty of 15-80hz output, but is definitely lacking in anything below 15hz. My goal now is to make some serious gains in the 5-10hz department. I guess you could say it's just the next step up for me.
For sealed subs, this build definitely sticks out: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1314884
I like the design of the array layout since the depth of the cabinet is not excessive. The depth of my current cabinet being around 33 has been an annoyance and I've had to change the positioning of the main speakers and TV to accommodate and also not look so funny. I know there are advantages of the dual-opposed design, but due to cabinet size that's not in the cards right now.
I do have some questions regarding the array design since I won't be using the insane powerful LG clone amps like notnyt has.
First off, what are the advantages/disadvantages to having both drivers in one sealed chamber in the cabinet opposed sealing each off from the other?
notnyt is using one amp per cabinet since the power is there, so I can see why one large sealed chamber makes sense. What if I were going to use a pair of amps to drive the cabinet, like one ep4000 per driver, or run one larger amp in stereo like my Peavey 4080hz rated at 2k RMS per channel at 4ohm? Would I want to seal each driver from the other, or does that cause a decrease in performance?
