New HT build need some sub help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm in the planning stages of a new home theater. I plan on making a false wall with 3 powered studio monitors behind a 106 inch AT screen. The subs are going to be up fireing and the whole wall is going to be drywalled so all you see is the screen.

The space i have under the screen is 22 inches deep by 24 inches high and 106 inches wide. For power I have a EP1500 and a EP2500. Max budget for the drivers is around $600. I live in Canada but will be getting them shipped close to the boarder to save on shipping. I am removing a wall to combine 2 rooms so the size of the space will be 29 feet deep by 15.2 feet wide but the listening position will be about 17 feet from the false wall.

A couple of options I'm thinking of is a 4 Infinity reference 12's dual 4 ohm ported off a bridged EP 2500 or 2 Dayton Audio RSS460HO 18's ported run in stereo of the EP 2500. What do you guys think?

Why would you fire them facing up? And especially with an AT screen? Mine are under it facing forward and on their own surface separate from the AT screen framing and still get screen vibrations. Just something to think about.

The house is also used as a vacation rental so I wanted the subs to be hidden. If I do front firing I will have to make some type of grill that blends in. What does anyone think of a pair of Type R 15's in a ported box? I can get a pair of dual 4 ohm type R's for 400. I'm really having a hard time finding a pair of subs that will give me a 4 ohm load that will take all the power the EP 2500 will give at 4 ohms.
