BOSS Build with 3 JBL 12” drivers
I got a very brief demo in after setting it up, and I can see how these imitate nearfield subs and make them a little less necessary. I get the TR in the seating that replicates nearfield and some SPL too, however little it might be it still sounds like there’s subs in the couch surrounding you which is awesome...I guess technically there is. The BOSS definitely doesn’t replicate the chest punch my nearfields do, but I wouldn’t expect it to.
I watched Fury and 13 Hours for a couple scenes and all without the Crowsons, two nearfield subs, and the 18” Marty cube turned on; so with only the front two subs on, I was very impressed. Played a half dozen ULF songs and equally impressive. They don’t dig down as deep with as much authority as Crowsons, but the effect is still noticeable.
Went with a 35Hz LPF for now, but it is a very natural feeling as many have mentioned and very impressive so far for what little I’ve heard. Need to fully recalibrate and tune them to taste. For now, I’m only running 250 watts total across all 3, and I bet they could take a lot more. I can see how clearance could become an issue at max excursion if not on hard floors, and it’s a bit difficult to tell how much movement they’re hitting other than trying to look at the top of the driver from above.
Having finished it all, I could have easily fit 6 drivers, but I don’t think that’s necessary, so glad I went with just three to keep it simple. Will be tweaking in my little spare time in the coming weeks. Overall, it was a great weekend build for such a return on the investment.
