I have one up and running, corner loaded. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it might be too much bass. Going to see how they sound behind the screen because damn.

Both drivers up and running. These things are totally destroying my end tables. I only had a few minutes to play but curtain shaker literally sends waves through the floor upstairs. Dedicated detached theater room is definitely necessary.

Build is officially complete, now the tweaking begins.

Build looks really good! Any particular reason why these 2 are destroying the end tables? Location?

Great question. There are two factors I can think of, both likely factor in. First, the new boxes are corner loaded. Second, the end tables are running off a bridged 1000DSP and the new subs are running off separate channels on a 3000DSP. On paper the power is similar...

I’m going to try to move the new subs behind the screen so it will be interesting to see how they perform back there.

Yeah, sad but plywood doesn't play well with roundovers. Had the same experience this summer. Other than that your build is looking great!

Thank you! The second box went perfectly. I set the router on the slowest speed and advanced very slowly, that did the trick.

BTW, did you end up using the 1/4"-20 Speaker Mounting Kit? Any tips on how to install these properly? Did you also use gasket to seal the sub/terminal?

Yup I used these: https://www.parts-express.com/parts-...g-kit--260-778

To install:
1) put speaker in place and mark holes.
2) pull speaker and drill 1/4 hole in center of each mark.
3) take a 5/16 drill bit and wrap tape around the bit at the depth of the t-nut.
4) drill out the back of each hole to the depth of the tape.
5) insert t-nut into back of hole and tap into place with a hammer.
6) when installing the speaker, tightening the bolt will draw the t-nut into the hole.

I'm putting together a full build video but here's the segment where I talk about the t-nuts.


The speaker comes with a gasket pre-installed that I find to be adequate.

Thanks for documenting everything! Looking forward to the whole video.

Oh boy.



Wife came downstairs and said are you cutting more holes in the wall? Yup.



Haven’t had a chance to run it through the paces yet but at low volumes it sounds pretty good. Unfortunately the kids were in bed when I finished up. More testing to come tomorrow.

Beautiful work! I'm glad you like the VBSS's. It looks like you've got room for more of them when the need arises.

Stop swearing.

You are slowly starting to realize the amount of bass some of us crackheads like to deploy.



120db... at idle RPM / ghost power.
125db at signal-detected!

I’m definitely slipping down the rabbit hole. I’m highly budget-limited due to my other expensive hobby, but I just picked up a used Fusion-12 LCR. The mains aren’t much of an improvement over my previous mains (Eosone RSF-1000), but the center channel is a huge improvement. Next on my list is a receiver upgrade, hoping to snag a deal on a used Marantz SR-6010 or Denon AVR-3600H/4100/4200/4300. After that, Volt 6 front heights!

Exact same router I have. Pretty good consumer level one with variable speed. Don't rely on the lock pin tho. They are mostly for looks. They snap right off with medium torque.
