Very excited for them to be delivered tomorrow and look forward to testing over the weekend!

It's a big day for you today!
I hope you love David's 18 Marianas as much as I love mine.


P.S. We love pictures!

+2 on the pictures.

These are some really special subs and you can't beat the service you get with them.

Airgrady - noticed you are in Naples. My wife and I are leaving tomorrow to head to Naples to celebrate my Grandpa's 90th birthday party. Any commercial theaters you recommend in the area? The weather looks iffy, so I figured we would go to a movie if needed.

You can be the first one! LOL Then sell it to us as "used" after you play few songs on it.

Just checking back in at the forum to give a little update. Haven't had a ton of time to test and calibrate the subs as we are still settling into the new house, but so far these are AWESOME! Treated my wife, kids, and my parents to 3D Lego Batman with the sound cranked - I think I had it a little "hot" as each sub shuffled a good foot or two by the time the movie was over. My wife said she could FEEL it outside the garage and house about 75-100 feet away. The rest of my custom furniture was finally delivered yesterday and David did an awesome job matching up the wood/stain that my furniture builder used on the remaining pieces. It all looks like it came from the same source. Once I get a chance to tuck the components into my new media cabinet, I'll post some more pics.

Thanks again, David!

That's really cool, thank you for sharing! Are the subwoofers down-firing in that cabinet? How do you plan to keep them from rocking around your house floor?

Don't forget the coasters!

Yup, they are down-firing. They are pretty heavy - David can correct me if I'm wrong - but I think they go about 140 pounds a piece. They will shuffle at obscene levels, but for the most part at loud levels they hold their ground. They are on tile, so potentially I might be able to stick some kind of additional rubber stopper underneath for each foot to sit in that might hold them in place. After all, what fun is it if you can't listen at OBSCENE levels?

Wait, there's an 8,000w amp? Well, technically there is a SpeakerPower SP2-8000(120v) and SP2-12000 (240v) but those are 2-channel amps.

Coach already has a pair of 24s up front, and 3 18s across the back. He only has 20,000 watts powering them. LOL!

Your pair of end tables with the solid wood legs and top are 150 pounds each. The standard Mariana 18S is 135 pounds with 80 of that being the driver and 10 lbs for the amp.

I haven't heard of the regular Mariana 18S moving, nor the Mariana 24 end table, likely due to it being over 200 lbs. I guess with it down-firing, the 18 is able to move the slightly smaller enclosure more. Have you tried putting some carpet tape under the feet? It may just be the rubber not having enough friction on tile (assumption). Let me know if you come up with a solution for others. Thanks.

Wow, I guess the logical choice would be two more 24s or 18s for the rear

Yeah, I'll report back once I shift attention to it. Maybe I'll test the strength of some 3M tape? Lol

Sorry for the delay in responding back.

Had a long day yesterday. Drove 8 hours(up and back from Cincinnati) and spent 5 hours helping my mom pack up her house..

Anyways, I am going to get back into the room today and do some playing around....might post a picture or two if I can get a good one.

I wish I could fit another pair of 24's in the back, but I really don't "need" that much power.

Let me make it easier for you....buy some 24s in the back and donate your DSS 18s to me! You "NEED" that much power.

So you can notice the difference between the 24s and 18s even tho they have the same power/thermal rating of 4k? In movies only or even with music?

I am 100% movies/TV with my system, so I can't really comment on music performance. With movies, I just feel like the 24's add something special to movie playback. If I could easily do it, I would switch the 24's with 18's but it would be too labor intensive. Prior to building the wall, I did try the 18's. I just thought for what I am trying to achieve with mid bass, the 24's were a great fit for me. They really fill the room out and allow me amazing performance, even at lower volumes.

My guess would be, that having dual 18's up front and a pair in the rear would give most folks an amazing sub setup... I just like to take things over the top.
