As of 11/24/2019
.... I will be building 3 Devastators and not 4 as per the original plan..... They will consist of 2 LFE and 1 Mini due to unforeseen circumstances that require that extra space..... all else is the same.....
I would like to thank the main dudes responsible for this build LTD02 & Red Five.
LTD02 created the initial design and Red Five took it and RAN with it….. Thank you both for your support to our community…. LTD02 & Red Five have been a GREAT help to me on my bass journey….
On to the business at hand:
Currently I have 2 Full Martys with the RSS460HO which are AWESOME in their own right in my space.
The room dimensions are 17 x 22 x 8 with old school plaster walls and suspended floor….
I’m just looking to take my system up to the next level in WOW factor…. Not that I NEED more output…. I would just like it to be more “in your face”, mid bass that feels like body shots.. etc. If you are here, you KNOW what I’m talking about….
So, I will be building 2-- Devastator LFE, 2-- Devastator MINI, a BOSS platform, a VBSS for the center channel & new rear surrounds. The LFE will have the Lavoce 21”, the MINI will get the RSS460HO & the BOSS gets 4 JBL 12”.
The new SEOS surrounds will have the same mid-bass drivers as my mains and be 2way (mid-bass drivers are in series). My mains are 3way and consist of a mid/high top and a VBSS 31Hz for bass section. The center channel will end up being a 3way (to match the mains) with the same drivers as the mains as well + a VBSS on the bottom.
So far I have managed to build only 1 surround from the wood I had on hand at the moment…. So here is a sneak preview….
I’m picking up the wood for this major undertaking on Friday….. wish me luck….
P.S That is an older pic of my mains before I changed 1 of the mids..... same design though....
