First DIY sub help
I've recently been put onto this forum regarding help to build a DIY sub. I'm in the process of designing/building a home theater (bad timing i know).
I've tried looking at the DIY FAQ and using the search bar but i haven't been able to find any clear answers to my questions as most are their outdate (links no longer exist). It could also be the my searching skills suck.
My room dimension are 5.1m x 3.4m x 2.7m (16.7' x 11.15' x 8.85'). My (humble) dream setup is 2 SVS SB 2000 but as they're about $1600 AUD each they're out of my budget. My other options are 2 SVS SB 1000 which go for about $1070 AUD each, still pricey but easier to digest.
I've got a few questions.
1. Would 2 SVS SB 1000s be enough for that room? if so is the DIY route cheaper/better/needed?
I've done some research with the info i could find. Would the Dayton Audio 12" Ultimax Subwoofer and Cabinet Bundle or A Dayton Audio 15" Ultimax Subwoofer and Cabinet Bundle be on par with the SB-1000?
Sorry about not being able to post links, i'm under the 5 post limit (this is my first)
2. Other than the bundle what else do i need to consider? I'll be running an Denon x3600h AVR with a MiniDSP for calibration. i'd rather not run an external amp if i can avoid it, would the AVR be able to run those 2 DIY Subs?
3. What about the sub amp plate? do i need one considering the SB-1000 has one? If i don't need one where are all the changes made? on the DSP?
I've read a lot about box size, to be honest i'm not sure why this makes a difference but i wouldn't want the box to be bigger than 22" x 22" x 22" if i can avoid it.
Again, sorry if these questions are basic/pointless. I've just got a bit of time on my hands to do some research due to this lockdown and i want to make the most informed decision i can, either DIY if i'm confident or off the shelf if it comes to it.
Thanks in advance.
