Sorry I’m late to the party guys. I’m new to the DIY sub group and have met some really great people along the way. I want to say thanks to SOWK for starting me down this rabbit hole. He introduced me to
who I had a great time talking to and eventually met with and purchased his Storm breaker sub with the B&C 21” driver. He should have named it “Back breaker”. It’s incredibly built and a monster which will serve as a near field right behind my seating position. I was also introduced to
. I was looking for 2 more DIY subs to replace the 2 SVS SB-16 sealed subs that I currently have, but didn’t have the tools, time, patience or technical expertise to do a DIY build so after talking to Mike (eng-399) and then driving to Illinois to meet with him I could tell that he was the one I wanted to do my build. He’s not only knowledgeable but has a genuine enthusiasm and passion. He comes highly recommended and I can see why. I didn’t want to keep upgrading so Mike convinced me to add 2 more 21” subs in front. Total overkill for a 13x18 room but there would be no need for future LFE upgrades in that room. We discussed the design goals and details and with the room being so small for such incredible low frequency firepower, I needed to have as much LFE control as possible. I also wanted to have synergy not only with 3 21” subwoofers but also with my mains as well.
Enter the Minidsp DDRC-88A with bass management plugin and Minidsp 2X4HD.
