I recently sold my (2) HT18 sealed subwoofers along with the iNuke 3000 DSP amp. I also sold my (4) 1260w in sealed boxes that were in my living room. I also removed the htib subwoofer from my bedroom. Why? Because I decided I wanted to better contain and focus my hobby. (I may have been nudged by my wife to consolidate, so what..).
I took the money from the subs I sold and picked up a couple of new B&C 21DS115-4 (inspired by
awesome subs) to pair with my recently rebuilt Fusion8's. All of it will go behind a used 120" AT screen from
, a gorgeous silver ticket 120" and images will be provided by my Optoma GT1080 Darbee short throw projector.
For each box, I have 20" depth (22" but I want the driver to have room to move), 32" width and 96" height. I think I'll limit the height to 48" so I can add two Moaaar subs someday if I wish.
I'm working on a side firing slot design that will be externally tunable for these. Tune range will go from 14hzish to 20hzish.
Each box will end up somewhere in the 11.25 to 12ish cuft after driver and port are subtracted depending on if I go 30" wide or 32". I may keep it to 30" so I can upgrade to wider mains someday.
Pics and progress to follow..
Edit: I'm dropping the "tunable" part of this sub because...i'm lazy.
Edit: adding finished pics. I ended up building the subs, the center console/stand, speaker stands all from the 4 sheets of plywood I used for the sub build. The inwalls behind everything are the original monoprice setup that surrounded a 60" sharp LCD TV. I've left them in place as a reminder...
