Hey guys. I need some advice on adding some new subs. I have several reasons...
1. Why not?
2. I have an iNuke 6000DSP sitting unhooked in my rack looking very sad
3. I desire to continue to balance the LFE across seating positions
4. Why not??
The issue is that I do have some limits on spacing. Again, I have 4 "cyclops" designed boxes (2x UM18s, 2x 460HO) currently, three in the front and one in the back. What I've wondered about doing is moving all 4 to the front, and putting new subs in the back of the room OR keeping it as is and just adding two more subs to the back corners. Whatever I add to the rear of the room, they have to be no higher than 24" to fit under the rear seats when they recline and they have to fit between my columns.
Here is a pic of the space behind my rear seats...
You can see I have space in each corner, as well as between the two columns, where the cyclops currently sits.
I've looked at the sealed flat packs sold at PE
for either the UM or HO series subs in either 18" or 15" sizes, and both would fit in the corners. If I went that route, I'd probably want to get the 18" versions with either two more UM18s or 460HOs. One option I'd have is to put the two 460HOs I have in two of my cyclops currently, into the new sealed enclosures and put two UM18s in their place so all 4 cyclops subs would be UM18s. So I'd end up with 4 UM18 cyclops subs (3 in front, 1 in back) and 2 460HOs in 4 cuft sealed enclosures (in rear corners).
Would having two sealed enclosures play nice with the 4 ported designs of the cyclops? Having an MiniDSP currently driving each of the cyclops, and the DSP of the iNuke driving the sealed subs, I'd have the ability to dial things in if having different designs in the same space is inherently bad.
Maybe there is another idea someone might have? Bottom line is I again want to continue to balance the LFE of my room and with already having an iNuke 6000DSP just sitting there in my rack, why not? :-)
