DIY Subwoofer Advice
Some of the below is copied from the Subwoofer forum...
Hello all, and thanks in advance for the advice!
My current HT is a mixed use space, rather large, and lacking punch. First, the room. Carpet over concrete basement, with painted wood paneling instead of sheetrock. Dimensions are 13' x 31' with the TV and fronts on the 13' wall closest to the entrance, and the surrounds mounted on the side walls about 15' back, just behind the couch and to the sides. Towards the back of the room, which is used for my drums, a craft table for wife and kids, there is a cased opening into my office and computer space space that is about 13' x 10' more. The ceilings are 8' so all in all I have just under 4400 cu. ft. of volume in the space.
I have a Denon X4400 running 5.1 With AV123 Rocket 750 Fronts, the Bigfoot Center, and then I have 2 B&W satellites pulling surround duty. My current sub is a 10" UFW from AV123 as well, which is a 10" Sealed sub. I am planning on keeping the speakers, but I plan on adding some height channels. I am also planning on changing out my older 50" Plasma screen with a 120" - 135" screen, and Projector. My plan is also to flip the room, so when you walk in there is the drums, and craft area, and towards the back of the room would be the HT. This is important because it will now be adjacent to the cased opening of my office. I would be willing to frame out and install a door there, dropping my space to about 3300 cu. ft.
My thoughts are leading me towards DIYing the Subwoofer.
Thoughts on the Dayton UM 18-22 driver, in a 4' cu.ft. sealed box, and iNuke, with the possibility of adding another? Any appropriate ported kits that would go better with the size of my room? What about 1 or 2 15" driver subs?
