When you go to listen to your system, do you do a pre-check? Something like... play 10hz and visually inspect all cones for movement?
2 of my UM-15's are already showing signs of failure. Undoubtedly from my heavy handedness, I guess it doesn't help that I'm sending 5x their rated power to them. Or at least that much is available to them if they choose to accept it. hehe!

I couldn't even hear a difference a between my 24 being on or off, and the cone does move...

It's really the combination of ALL the cones that makes a difference. You won't hear much difference between 28 vs 29 etc... The only exception would be the HzHorn with the system playing a 16hz sinewave because the Horn is about 18db louder than all the other sealed boxes between 12-30hz. LOL!

Those failing um15s...perhaps try out the new Dayton reference high excursion model that were shown at CES. Or HST 15s that can take the pounding better.

Well the flood restoration crew are busy rebuilding my house. The basement got hit the hardest.

There was asbestos so they had to go all hazmat on everything.

There is a 40ft metal box parked in my driveway, all the cabinets, tables, seating and whatever trapped deep inside.
3 months in and it STILL looks like a war zone.

Brand new 2019 insulation, drywall, paint, flooring though...



This ate up ALL of my 2019 HT budget, so no more HT upgrades until like spring 2020 now. YAY!
and now it's almost time to leave to get back to work, for another solid 7 months regardless. double YAY!

No HzHorn V2, no 4K projector, no AC, no seating, no 32 subs, no Atmos, no doors, no trim, no remote relay triggers, no nothing!

Man, so sorry to hear that. Life throws curve balls at you.

Hope you can at least get everything cleaned up and back to normal living real soon.

Flood or fire always sucks.

Do you have insurance at least? I didn't have to do anything, they did it all. Pumped out the water, heaters and blowers, tested for moisture and asbestos, zoned everything off, and ripped out everything that got wet, moved everything that was keepable to the metal box, took garbage to dump, installed new (still on-going), light fixtures, plumbing and everything.

Why would you do it yourself... unless you enjoy doing work after work?
Maybe the HT room you'd want to do yourself, but the normal rooms let them do it all!!! Who wants to arch their back for hours taping and muding and painting and slinging drywall when they will do it for "free", and their work is 100% certified... If something bad happens in the future, then THEY messed it up, and YOU can't be blamed for it. Do nothing!

I feel ya boys.... I flooded 8 years ago on the day I paid for our 40k basement reno.... we hadnt even had 5 hours in the basement.... we, at the time couldnt get flood insurance, had to re-do everything ourselves... our only saving grace is, we had 20 people over for a party when the rains started (8 inches in a hour, then power went out, sump pump quit and it was 2 feet of water within 20 mins) but we got all my equipment out thank god.

Blasting brown notes for 10 years and counting!

What?! How many subs were affected? How does insurance handle the reimbursement cost of DIY subs? If your subs were affected are you planning on reducing the amount of different style builds, or are you going to sell all non-24's and beef up to 32s? 😈😈😈
