Would you say it's better than transducers?

Preety neat setup by the way! You inspire me

You could go ported and do the same thing but would likely take a larger box or a smaller driver, assuming you wanted to tune it low...

Yes, sealed.


I figured the internal volume by using a simple spreadsheet to calculate the space needed.

https://www.hometheatershack.com/for...me-calculator/
I used two (at the time unused) Sound Splinter RLp18 subwoofer drivers. I had six of them, four used in two dual-opposed subs in the rear corners of the room just behind my futon couch. I chose this option because it would not cost me additional cash. Essentially free to build aside from the material to make the riser which wasn't very expensive at all. I would have gone with dual (or more) Crowson actuators but that would have cost at least $1k of which I could not afford. Very pleased with the results and after a few years of use I would not consider changing them to anything else now. Better? Maybe. I've had great (and bad) demos of nearfield subs, Buttkickers and Crowsons. It all really lies on the setup and this riser seems to be able replicate the best of all methods. I'm very happy with this system.


Thanks! I know it's been a while so I hope you found your answer one way or another and have been fruitful in your pursuits.

Sometimes, I wish they had. Nope. Just took an extended break from AVS.

I am .... ALIVE.


Sorry but the HT series was discontinued by Stereo Integrity. The best you can do is find them on the used market. Good luck!

Not a whole lot has been updated with my room. Some changes though. Haven't spent much time in it this past year. Have not had a lot of motivation to work on things or even be in there. Been dealing with.... life.





Been a long while since I've been on. I missed a lot of people here.

Totally get it. We have a phrase we use around the house after every long-ass trying tiring impossible day... "It's a lot of work being alive."

Thanks for coming up for air for a moment. :-)
