: no worries mate, just glad to help, often when you stand in by yourself you get tunnelvision and don’t see all the options, and a fresh point of view can help see the light
I often use 90% of the time in a project envisioning things and mulling over the alternatives available, and then often just need 10% of the time to execute the idea.
I just thought you were quick to dismiss what gear you already have and went straight for the "need to buy more stuff" option, LOL.
It’s all good, and you’ll get there, my friend
Since the cantilever was already mentioned in the BOSS thread i had that in the back of my mind, but i figured it would be a compromized setup being all the way behind the couch, but as luck would have it, it was quite the contrary. Luckily, as it was my last effort in the BOSS game before giving it up, and going back to my old setup
And yes, i think it has to do with the center of force gets more centered around your main body from your waist up, at least in our recliner seats, instead of being more centered on your lower body, exactly as you experienced with you front vs rear JBL experiment. This is also why the MA’s are recommended mounted under your rear couch feets, and not the front ones.
You have noted the same thing about your BK’s and where to mount them(more to the rear), and that is one thing that puzzles me, because in my case i LOVE the BK’s under the front of my couch, even in a front iso setup only they ROCK in that position. But it may be because they augment the MA’s in the rear so good, and while they work well seperate, they add beautifull together for a summed improved result.
So, i may get better result from trying the BK’s in cantilever, but that also might make the front lacking(my lower body). But as you said, trying your BK’s in the rear could be a viable option
HAHA, yes mounting the BOSS driver OVER the VNF’s could be a great spacesaving idea, and that would be a great sight to turn around and see all hose 18" cones right behind you, LOL. Awsome idea
, But it may be a bit less optimal as you said it will end up far from the base. It may change both the TR direction/axis and intensity level, but it is hard to tell. Then again with all these ideas it could turn out great. Remember the most important thing here is the summed total response of the system, and if it will make the VNF’s more optimized for example, it may turn out to give a better result
I will just mention this as i did it myself, and it made adjustments/ changes so much easier: if you could, do try to make a " one seat sled" like i did! It was a real hassle earlier to remove the whole couch to tinker with it, while now i can just flick up my one seat and basically do whatever i want, the rest of the couch is left alone and works just fine.
And i just have a 2 seater, you have 3 seats. And espesially since there is some options to try out. Once you find the perfect combo, you can make the final version for all three seats. That is now my plan of attack
My sled couldn’t be easier to make, just a couple of 2x4 lengths, and some MDF/plywood inserts, and your’e up and running.
Yeas, the added TR if you mount the VNF’s on the plattform COULD be a problem in the upper frequencies, and it need to be testd for sure, but somehow i don’t think that will be a problem. If you look at/put your hand on the sub box while playing sine waves, IF you have movement/TR form the box, it is the most at low frequencies, which is what we want to tap into. At higher frequencies (above say 30-40hz) the box is pretty inert.
But if it gets a problem, it could maybe be damped with iso’s under the VNF box. That way the ULF TR may still survive to your seat. Just a thought
Yeah, i managed to get a supply run yesterday too, so i think i have the materials i need now, so that’s nice. But i hear you on the time managment issue, LOL. I am a shift worker, so somethimes i have several days off, other times work evenings and nights, so getting some time to tinker with "my baby" isn’t always as easy.
Patience, i guess
: that sound like it should work great, and getting it all packed up close to your back would improve the experience a good bit, me thinks. Awsome, i am following you thread with great interest
