Leaving both ports open requires rumble filter to be set to 2 port/On and increases port tune to 18Hz. You can still set extension and damping to your preference, but you don't really gain much more headroom at frequencies 18Hz and up. You just end sacrificing extension and get increased ringing/boominess from the rumble filter and higher port tune. Some also report is less 3D/more flat sound due to the missing extension under 18Hz.

The main advantage of 2 ports open is it is less likely for port chugging to occur at very high SPL and content with very deep and strong bass. Using low damping can also help in such usage, though at the expense of added ringing/boominess.

Most here use 1 port plugged, rumble filter off, 14Hz extension and high damping (you can also try mid or low for movies).

Hope this helps...
Thanks. I have both open on mine. I will try 1 port open option.

What is "sealed sub like sound" if both ports are plugged? I am sure the Sub cannot go any lower in frequency than whats reported and it will decrease output also. So whats the advantage of plugging both?
Only one port can be plugged, never both. Sealed sub like sound means that the one port plugged with rumble filter off and 14Hz/high damping produces a very clean, deep, and tight bass response that is similar to a sealed sub. The Rythmik ported subs are designed to sound more like sealed one, except for the added output and tactile response port(s) provide.

Recommended number of circuits?

Speccing a new build, with an opportunity to get things right from the start. If planning on using 4 F18s, how many dedicated circuits should I plan for the subs? 1 circuit for all 4 amps? 2? Or 4, with a dedicated circuit for each? This will be a fairly large room (3 rows of seating) and although discotheque volume levels are not needed we do want to be able to play motion pictures comfortably at reference level.

I can tell you I currently run a pair of FV25HPs on one 15a circuit without any issues so far. It is a dedicated circuit to the subs though so no other loads on it.

Hope this helps,

I'm more for having extra to be on safe side mentality. Since are building out I'd do a few dedicated 20amp runs. 2 for your 4 subs. And 1 for your receiver/amps and other items. You never know what more demanding upgrades you'll do in the future. Much cheaper to run it now. I wish I had added a couple dedicated runs when my house was built.

I didn’t plan on having the system I now own when we built our house. I have everything in my signature running of a single 15a circuit. Haven’t tripped a breaker yet, but I might not be as crazy as others on the volume knob?

I have the fv25hp both on 15 amps and I do crank them up pretty high and I dont even get flinching lights let alone tripped a breaker. I have 2 dedicated 20 amps next to them but haven't needed to change to them. Hope that helps.

I have my two F25 subs on a single 15 amp circuit (only a couple LED lights on the circuit otherwise), then I have 2 dedicated 20 amp circuits near my equipment rack (1 just for my two amps and 1 covers all of the other electronics like processor, blu-ray player, display, misc.). If you wanted to be extra safe, do two circuits for your 4 subs (two subs on each circuit). Probably doesn't matter if they are 15 or 20 amp, but it probably won't cost you anything extra to do 20 amp if the runs are short.

We have a pretty close way to do-it. I got a dedicated 20 amp circuit, for my two subs. One more dedicated 20 amp circuit, for my Outlaw 7700. Then a dedicated 15 amp circuit, for my second Amp Outlaw 5000. And one more dedicated 15 amp circuit, for all the electronics.

While I know, it is way overkill. I know for sure, that the power will always be there if required

Using some quick math:

If all four subs are taken to the max output of their amplifier (900w each), you'd require 3600 watts, or about 30 amps of current at 120 volts. Allowing a ballpark of 25% for inefficiencies of the amp will bring total power needs to ~4500 watts. Each dedicated 20 amp line will give you about 2400 watts, give or take. So, two 20 amp lines would in reality be more than enough, if you max out your sub amps.

Most people who are only going to reference sound levels or less are unlikely to need to max out their 900w sub amps...particularly with four subs and room gain.

Looking at your situation from a slightly different view, if we need to use 3 dB less of power output per sub to achieve the desired SPL, that would cut the max amplifier draw to half, or about 450 watts/sub for 1800 watts total (2250 watts if using 25% amp inefficiencies). If 6 dB less of power output per sub is needed or used, then we are looking at roughly 225 watts/sub or 900 watts total (1125w). If 9 dB less, we are at ~450 watts total (~565 watts w/inefficiencies).

Basically, this is about how loud you want to play and what type of margins you'd like to include. If you want to play it safe, give yourself lots of headroom, maybe considering to go down the BEQ route, then two 20 amp lines. Otherwise, one 15 amp or 20 amp line could be all you'll need.

FWIW.

While I did admit, I like to overkill. And more likely, always will
I do remember that post, and look for-it for 30 minutes or so. But came back empty hand.
And it was a good education on breakers, for tripping them.

By this I mean a system with 2xHP+ amplified units with each driving an HP-Slave unit; 4 cabinets total, 8 x 15" woofers, and actually a rather common configuration our customers arrive at directly or through a couple upgrades.

Circuit breakers have a duration related behavior. This is rather useful in homes as it might otherwise be tricky to get garbage disposals to initially turn on, or toasters to not trip breakers when turned on. Ultimately the intended job of a circuit breaker is to keep over current conditions from overheating wires in the power system, and to interrupt fault conditions (ie hot shorted to neutral or other). Wires don't heat up instantly, so immediate, brick wall protection has no benefit.

Standard household breakers can pass 1.5-10x their trip current for short a duration. The shorter the duration, the more it can pass. Considering it's dissipated power which heats things up, this makes sense, as power requires duration, as a Voltage burst 2x longer but the same intensity results in 2x the power dissipated.

Common figures used for power requirements use 1/3rd to 1/6th draw from rated audio power, particularly if we exclude subwoofers. If we were only powering signals above 1kHz in an active system, we might load up to 1/6-1/20th the power draw from the rated audio power. For subwoofers that can range from 1/4 to as much as 1/2 rated power if pushed hard into limiters, other protections, or hard clipping.

Of course the amplifier type has to be considered, as class AB amplifiers are much less efficient, and plenty of class D amplifiers are 70-80% efficient, while the 4000W amplifier I use is closer to 90% efficiency. As an example, a 2000W amplifier that is 50% efficient could draw a maximum of 4000W, while an 80% efficient equivalent could draw a maximum of 2500W, while a 90% efficient amplifier could draw a maximum of ~2220W.

So, I've been experimenting with low shelf filters in the MiniDSP 2x4 HD (both the basic option in the 2x4 HD plug-in and the versions in REW that can be imported into the plug-in (LS, LS 6dB, and LS 12dB).

Using a gain of 3dB (sub not running hot or any other bass boosts), and a frequency of 40Hz, I was able to make my room shake with Netflix movies around -35MV on my Yamaha AVR.

Yet when I simply run the sub 3dB hot without a house curve, it doesn't sound nearly as strong.

Why is this?

Is anyone here using SVS soundpath feet with their Rythmik subs? It seems that the included screws with SVS soundpath are not compatible with FV15HPs.

How thick are the standard feet? Also, how many feet does FV15HP has? 4 or 6? My subs are behind the baffle wall. I thought I would just ask on forum rather than removing the screen to check.

Thanks

And does the measured response before and after show exactly the intended effect, or something else?

Well....my jaw is dropped

Got my G25HP in this week...and dear god, I have never heard bass like this. Now, I haven't even run REW or correctly calibrated this thing...just two run throughs of Audyssey and phone call w/ Enrico....but I am so blown away I can't even explain. Coming from an SVS PB-4000, I have never heard bass like this. It is so tight and controlled while still digging deep. I enjoyed the SVS, not here to bash - I just wanted something a little better for my room. I have shared walls in a duplex, so I tried going sealed for now. Last night, I did the opening of EOT - never heard it like that. Neighbors didn't feel a thing. Tonight, I watched Don't Breathe (one of the best movies for LFE I have ever seen) and it was at -6 on the trim, and MV at -22. WOW. I text the neighbors and they said they felt it, but nearly as bad as before. So, my hopes came true....I can listen at louder levels without bothering them. I can go down to -8 probably and not affect them, which I couldn't do before. I'm so glad I listened to everybody and tried out Rythmik. I will never try another sub brand, just add more of these haha

Welcome to Rythmik club. That was exactly my thought 6-7 years ago when I got my 1st FV15hp. What was better? 2 of them, so here I am rocking 2 Fv15hps for years.

Ha Great minds think alike! I'm extremely impressed/enjoying the FV25s in my media room! I'm looking at a sealed sub for each of for my boys bedrooms. All I hear is Dad... need more bass! Would the F12 be a good fit for a bedroom (15' x 13') 2-channel application?

Yes, the F12 would be a good choice, same as the L22. I have a LVX12 in my bedroom which I use daily for watching TV and a L22 in my home office for editing and mastering. I love both but if you are more into music, then the L22 is the way to go.

So, soon all they'll hear is "boys, turn down the bass!"

Depending upon budget and long-term goals an L12 might be a better choice. Or go for an F12 but have them pay half with the understanding they get to take it when they leave.

On my LVX12’s is the gain knob an attenuator only or past 12 o’clock does it amplify/boost?

Your gain on the sub, is only a volume control from the signal receive by your AVR. Meaning, if the signal receive is too weak or too strong. You can adjust there, not too have your AVR volume output set too extreme. Like -10 dB or +5-10 dB, as an example. This is when you tweak, with sub knob to achieve a better number. Post calibration, from your AVR output volume. Once calibration is done, you like to be around -5 dB on the AVR output. This give some room to adjust your bass preference level, from the AVR output up or down by a few dB.
