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.
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.
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!
