Which sub? What to do?
Hey guys, We will be moving shortly and I'm ordering parts for my LCR speakers for the family room.
I am going to also need a new sub as I wont really be able to use the IB in this house. Im torn between which sub to use. I want to do a horn and like both the submaximus and the devastator. I haven't been keeping up with all the revisions and iterations of both so I am looking for your advice. I will have a HT setup eventually so this doesnt have to be the end all be all but I would like to have some pretty decent output. I do like listening to music and it will share both music as well as movie duty, but I do not need the LFE extension I currently get from my IB. The amp is an old but strong Samson SX3200 that is rated at 2200 watts into 8 ohms mono, so I have a decent amount of power. This will probably be tucked away in a corner closet next to the entertainment center firing out into the room. I was looking at the B&C 21DS115 in either of the enclosures. It sounds like the devastator might have a little deeper extension while the submaximus might have a little more output? Or am I off base?
I will do some more reading up on both when I get back into the office. I do like my IB and it plays 10Hz effortlessly, but it does lack some in the midbass region (as do my current speakers, so double whammy). In all reality, we use the sub more for movies than music. Hopefully that will change once I build my new speakers.
Looking for feedback and recommendations from those who have built either/or both and their opinions.
Thanks in advance and I look forward to all the feedback!
