Stereo Integrity's new HT Subwoofer - Page 54

post #1591 of 2212
The two different chains that still show the same thing are:

REW--->3.5mm out to RCA in on marantz 8801-->fp14k (or DCX--->fp14k but still the same response)

Omnimic disk on Denon 1611-ud-->same chain as above

They are both almost the same measurement, with the RS SPL meter, the CSL calibrated UMM-6 and the newly calibrated omnimic

I think it soundcard issues, the laptop is an older than dirt HP laptop

Finally getting around to testing these beasts...

Okay, popalock, that is just cool. I must admit I'm a little jealous.

I don't think you have enough. I think you need another 16 so you can hit 120db at 1hz.

I just keep on showing builds/pictures of stuff like this to my wife to prepare her for the day when we eventually get a house (we're both working hard going back to school). She knows what's going to happen and seems like she doesn't care but it doesn't hurt to prepare her. That's the great thing about my wife is that when we were younger (back in 2001 before we got married) she bought my truck off of me which was an extended cab dodge Dakota with a full blown stereo that had 3 JL Audio 10W6 subs (the original ones) that pounded you in the back. She likes this stuff and is a bass head just like me. cool.gif I recently finished my HT sub build and have only watched about 4 movies so far. Last night we watched sinister and we both loved the impact that the subs brought to the movie which added to the realism of what was going on and cause us to jump out of our seats a lot more than before. In the middle of the movie we took a break to make popcorn and she commented on how great the theater sounded! I told her that she hasn't heard anything yet and just wait until we get out of our condo and I can work on putting together a REAL theater. biggrin.gif

Just keep on telling your other half that no matter how crazy you may sound there's always someone crazier out there... wink.gif

Austin, I can't wait to see your build on all those subs!!!
post #1601 of 2212
Austin, do you think that you'll be done with these subs by late August? I live in New Jersey and go down to Mooresville, NC (ironically, where SI is located) to visit my sister and her kids every year. I would absolutely love to stop by for a short listen (maybe only an hour or so as it's a 9 hour drive). I usually take the PA turnpike and then take 81 all the way down but I've also gone through Washington but don't like that route as I usually get stuck in traffic. If I go the Washington route you're literally only 5-10 miles out of the way and would make for an awesome pit stop! I could also show my wife what she'd be in for! biggrin.gif I'm not sure if our timing would coincide but it be great if it did!

You and anyone one else from the AVS congregation are welcome to stop by for a demo anytime...

I'll be done a lot sooner than you think. Halfway there already.

Wow!

That looks menacing, I like it!

Were are the other 8 subs going? How does it sound with 8 so far?
post #1604 of 2212
Whoa!! That looks awesome popalock!

Still got a lot of dialing in to do. I also will have a miniDSP 4 x 10HD on the way next week to assist with additional tweakage.

Impressions thus far... Subjectively, the midbass is borderline retarded. However, I can already tell it's going to take more measuring and tweaking to get the ULF awesomeness that floats my boat. Just from listening to about 30min of music and sitting through a random movie, I feel like I enjoyed the low-end impact of the LMS-U's better....

I'm confident I will be able to reach goals with the SI's though. For sure.

WE WANT MEASUREMENTS!!!!!! haha!!! Looking good bro!

I bet your room is dropping off like a rock like mine is. I can't wait to finish the other 4 so I can try out the minidsp.

Your front wall is completely doing it for me. I love seeing drivers - and that's all you see, beautiful man. Speaking of that, the look of these drivers has grown on me a lot which is good I don't think I could get a grill on them without a quadruple friggin baffle with that huge surround.

Chances are without eq you've got a large midbass hump going on. The minidsp should do the trick and allow you to cut some of that out as well as add some trims to the bottom end.

Now you've got to build new mains to being the horns down to ear level. biggrin.gif

For sure man. I'll try to get some up shortly. I actually took today as a sick day and I was planning on having like 8 hours of alone time with my new toys. But, of course the wife decided to take a sick day as well... HHHuuuhhhhhh.....

Of course...

Been following your build closely B! Looking forward to your listening impressions. Tell you what, Joey definitely has a ton of notes so he should be able to bust out the second box no problem when the upgraditus bug hits...lol

Yeah man, I already have the SMS-1 and it was able to do a little bit for me, but I'm really hoping the miniDSP will put me right where I want to to be. Fingers crossed.

Build new mains... Killing me smalls...lol. Maybe next year or something. I'm still only 50% done with my subs and you know how the wifey is man. Let's say it's been a trying few months just to get to this point...
post #1614 of 2212
I love that, I have looked at it at least a dozen times. I am already reconsidering my re-design once I get around to building the full-time boxes...

Joey's already got my SEOS baffles and drivers delivered. Just waiting on the AE drivers to ship and the SEOS Tower build will be under way. Mains needed before any new subs.

Poor guy's been busting his ass, but at least he'll be well compensated smile.gif

I'm interested in the minidsp myself. If Trinnov doesn't help much, I'll be grabbing one. Supposedly the Minidsp won't help much down low either (under 20hz).
post #1618 of 2212
Minidsp can easily eq down to 10hz. With some creativity, you can get below that.
post #1619 of 2212
End tables are done and rattle free. First speaker build of my life and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. I'll be making a thread soon to cover the build and lingering questions/optimizations.
post #1620 of 2212
That turned out great, and very inconspicuous.
