I'm located in Ballantyne in South Charlotte. Used to live in Cornelius on the lake before I moved down here so I'm familiar with Mooresville area.
Seeing your signature.....How did your wife let you get 4 18 inch subs in the living room??? I'm trying to talk her into getting dual subs and move my current sub upstairs. She thinks 1 sub is enough bass.....but they just never understand. LOL
Regarding the sub: it's actually a single sub, 8' long, 25" high, 25" deep, which contains the 4 18" SI Drivers. Ironically, when I was researching here what sub(s) to get, just for kicks I did a Craigs List search, and came across this sub. Turns out, this was a DIY sub, built be an AVS'er, who documented the build here
, and who lived in Denver (NC).
So it's basically a large piece of furniture, and sits under my screen, a bit to the left. I ended up getting black velvet to cover the nicely finished wood top, to optimize viewing. This is a large room (20'x32') with Vaulted Ceilings, and so has room and can take advantage of a sub that size. I would say that my wife 'tolerates' its output, but just barely. It really shakes the house!
I've attached a photo which shows the setup (with the rear Dolby's at the back of the room not shown in this photo). The white popcorn ceiling is obviously not ideal for a home theater, but at least it's pretty far away from the screen. Painting it black, or covering it with Black Velvet is not in the cards!
You are more than welcome to come up here and check it out anytime you are free. I'm semi-retired, with not a lot else going on, so can likely accommodate your schedule. We're having some painting and flooring done now, but that should be finished in a week or two, so any time after that would be great.
I'll pm you my address, contact info.
Looking forward to it!
