In the land of Low Frequency Effects, in the fires of Mount SubSonic, the Dark Lord Ssabripo forged in secret a master subwoofer, to control all low frequencies. And into this subwoofer, he poured his Sonotube, his Avalanche 18" XBL^2, and his will to dominate all audible and palpitable senses in these frequency ranges.
"'One Subwoofer to rule them all...
One Subwoofer to bind them in (flat) FR...
...In the Land of LFE where the Subsonic ranges lie...
These two subwoofers shall reproduce them all!'"
But the conquest to conquer the deepest of frequencies, nay deep into the realms of Minas Single digits, called for the return of the one true heir to the throne of LFE: the quad XBL^2 motor king.
Ok, enough of the cheesy intros..... much more info in the upcoming days/weeks. My partner in Crime Chasw98 and I shall begin construction on the towers as soon as time permits and parts are all here. Thus far, I've decided to go with either a 13hz or 12.3 hz tune, but nothing is set in concrete:
The heart and soul of the project has arrived: a Pair of brand new Ascendant Audio Avalanche 18" drivers....dont ask how I got them or how much I payed for them....just know that I was lucky enough to land them. For about less than one single LMS5400 I was able to land both of these, so as much as I would have loved to be the first to build a pair of large Low Tuned EBS sonotube LLTs (insert favorite acronym here) using the TC drivers, this is a blessing in the sky that such made to fit drivers like these appeared in the sky! heheh.
Yes, the suckers are HUGE, and if the relatively modest AV15 was able to reproduce bass of the quality and magnitude as my DIY box did, I can only imagine what these two towers will do! Some eye candy for you fellas now:
As I finalize the tune point, and get more parts in, and construction begins at Chuck's, we will post it up for you......
with the towers in full place, we decided to go with a quad sealed setup to try how it would differ not only in output, but also what the acoustic differences would be, and what the extension would be.
