Sub design for new basement
Longtime forum stalker, finally getting to the point in my basement finishing that I need to seriously consider the "theater"...FINALLY! The room will NOT be a dedicated theater, but I plan to have a 120" projector screen mounted on a wall with a NG fireplace in the corner about 6 feet away from the screen. I had already planned to build some custom built-in cabinets below the screen to house the electronics, but now I have talked myself into building subwoofer enclosures into that space as well. I'm looking for some input about design and driver selection at this point. The system will be used about 60/40 for movies & sports/music.
Plan as of now...Two subwoofers located on each side of the built in. Each "box" will be a ported martysub style integrated into the cabinet with acoustic grill cloth hiding the drivers/ports. I am thinking about using an Infinity 1262 in each box powered by an inuke1000 with dsp. Why 1262 you ask? Budget. The only size constraints I have is that I need the height to be around 18" and the width can be up to 24"...I have plenty of length to work with.
I'm dealing with a fairly large space (sketchup and a few pictures attached...excuse the clutter and blurred out children) and understand that my sound will suffer because of it. I am ok with this, but I want to get the best sound I can get at the lowest price possible. Doesn't everyone? The theater section is just under 3000 ft^3. The kitchen/bar/doorwall entry will take up another 4000 ft^3.
