- "FUKEN NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
welcome to the darkside!! now get some measurements on those badboys ASAP shorty! "
Heheh...sure does feel good.
I was gonna wait a little while to actually take some measurements. I wanted to break em in real good for a bout a week or so. All I have is an older style analog RS meter. Annnnddd I just got REW a little while ago, maybe Ill just try that first. Should be more accurate than if I were to plot it manually. I'd say in the next week or two will I do some measurements. Im still trying to get used to them.Vinculum
- "Wow... Those sure look fierce!
Are you going to paint inside the ports?
I can't wait to hear your impression when you get to crank them up full bore. You might wanna pickup a bucket of drywall spackle next time you goto Home Depot!"
They sure are mean lookin'!
So far I am the only person that doesnt care much about the color of the ports. The the flashed pics exaggerate the brightness of them. And when the lights are out, you cant even see the subs. Ill probably paint them in the near future. I still have to touch up the paint on the outside of it. You can still see the cardboard edge under the glue.
So far I have done quite a few "demos" here and there today. A little Star Wars (pod race), We Were Soldiers, U571, Titan AE, Matrix, Matrix:Reloaded, Pearl Harbor, Open Range, Superman Returns,Xmen Last Stand, opening to LotR, ID4...to name a few.
Yesterday I touched some of those at levels that were comparable to the max output of my single 250w Tempest. Obviously at much, much lower distortion levels. Sounded so effortless. Scenes that previously used to clip the plate amp would play with such ease. It was quite a sensation.
Today I flirted with the max output of these...accidently left it +6dB on Xmen3 from watching open Range and that was the only time I heard the slightest peep of strain. Very loud transients were reproduced just fine but I think I heard a noise on a couple of loud booms. Other than that....spectacular performance so far! So far my favs are still good. Others take on a new a new life. The thunder from Open Range is so realistic, I wanted to look outside and check if there was a cloud cover. Most realistic recording of thunder Ive ever heard. Awesome stuff!Crackyflipside
Build another two and put it in the other corner! "
Ack! Don't tempt me! Ive heard plenty of "Omg's!" when friends/family look at these not to mention the "Omfg, no's!" Ive heard when I mentioned that I might
want two more. Cause I already know...I do.
I think I am a little insane though, so its all cool.
Mmmm....I could say then that I have," +6dB'd myself into submission." Video
- "Yes, you should definitely paint the inside of the port. Those are really awesome. I love how big they are.
Since you didn't round the edges of your ports, let us know if you get any turbulence noise.
Now CRANK em up and let fly!!!"
Hehehe...actually, I dont think they ever will. I specifically designed this to almost never have port turbulence. It was an 11hz tune. Ive modeled it out and even with 650w into each one the port speed just barely gets above 30 m/s. And that is only between 7-12hz.
So far I have tried all sorts of ridiculous <16hz material into them at many volume levels and have heard zero port noise. All sorts of movie and music mind you. One song I play has a very strong, sustained <9hz material with loud sustained 12-18hz stuff after. No a single peep from the ports. Ahahah! I love it!
Thats it for now...Ill have many many more impression on the way. I still have to pop in the DTS versions of Saving Private Ryan, The Haunting and *duh duh duh* WotW.
(acutally, I forgot to mention I have played ch5 from WotW already. Lolz! It sounded wonderful! Now I just have to do it again...only louder.
