Don’t underestimate the size of this horn. It is exactly the same size as 5 VBSS boxes.

Having said that, I imagine you would enjoy it.

Just got home... had to make a DIY roof rack just to get the plywood home. Lol Time to see what this madness is all about. I'll start by replacing the full Marty in my corner with 1 and see where that leaves me. If I build a second I guess I'll just lay it down on its side behind my seating. Itd work best to lay it with the ports facing up (keep the depth off the wall the shortest possible), but dont want to have someone use it as a shelf and have stuff fall into the ports.

I'll dive back into the different submaximus build threads and take my time building this thing. Want to make sure I do it right!

I promise you, a bass horn is the best sound you ever heard! Do you plan on running this sub above 80hz?

I'm not sure yet. I have the crossover at 90 or 100hz for the system right now. The Marty is only playing up to 30hz where the VBSS take over. I imagine I'll run the horn as high in the frequency band as I can as long as it still sounds good. I've got rew and a 2x4hd to help integrate.

I'll be doing a lot of measuring before too long. I ordered some HT12s for LCR from diysg that I'm hoping will arrive in a week or so as well.

HT12's for LCR will be something you'll look at with a smile, every time
i think it's the 15" horns
looks like they "came to play" and "they got game"

with Max, once you get into BM mode,
you'll think -WHAT?!?-set them to small?

Does this require a high-pass filter ? I would assume not as it is in a sealed compartment.

It was recommended by ltd02 to put a 17hz high pass filter
