Experience and measurements with sub towers?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm planning to build a subwoofer system to my excellent CBT36 speakers soon. I want the flexibility of having something that can work well from about 20-200 Hz. This is a dedicated two channel setup and I will use two units because of high cross-over.

I wonder if anyone has experience building towers and if they have measured an improvement with stacked drivers vertically or not. Just more gain isn't interesting, but I would like to see an improvement in the frequency response and preferable also look at the time domain (waterfall).

Hi omholt,

I built a pair of my sealed MFWs in dual opposed tower formation. Room issues aside they measure exactly the same as single boxes short and fat.



The only improvement you may see IMO is that from moving the sub away from the floor-wall corner which may net you some room mode benefits, idk how much if any improvement you would see there either though....
