Here is my best guess as to how (2) Dual opposed Dayton cabinets will perform compared to the Caps.
Comparison of (4) dayton drivers in 14 cubes vs. 2 UXL-18's, ported, in 16 total cubes tuned to 19hz. Both being fed 5000 watts. It takes >30hz for the Daytons to really take over. Man, that port really adds a lot of efficiency around 20hz!
NOW - moving to eight drivers and 10,000 watts, and assuming co-location...it's a total domination in favor of the Daytons below and above 20hz....BUT we're also talking 28 cubic feet of enclosures, and TWICE the power lol. If I subtract out 6 DB or so from not being co-located, I don't think I'm going to be gaining a whole lot >20hz.
I know my original goal was to pick up some <20hz content, but not if it means it will come at the expense of midbass slam.
Am I going to have to remove a wall and go to 16 drivers?? LOL!Edited by Gorilla83 - 11/7/12 at 1:26pm
