These are part of our Design Series, where the DS18-12 (12" deep box), and DS18-20 (20" square face) are shown below. The DS18-20 can have the option of internal amplification, but the vast majority to be powered from our rack mounted amplifiers, especially when concealed behind a screen or stretched fabric.
Mark, as you and I discussed, my installer is finalizing speaker placement (9.X.13 speaker layout), and what I like about your subwoofers in particular is custom sizing. My theater as remodeled is 18.25' W x 23.25' L x 11'11" H. My aisles will be about 3' on each side. As you and I discussed, plenty of room at the front screen wall below the screen for subwoofers at the front of my theater (screen starts a bit above the front left, right and center Aerial Acoustics 7t speakers which are about 47" tall). In terms of subs at the rear of the theatre, if they go in the rear corners there's only 14" on the left to the entry door, so if rear corners width would need to fit within this area - you mention the DS18-12 (12" deep box) so that may work. Or if we place the rear subs along the side walls out a bit from the rear corners then if the subs are no more than say 18" deep - less would be better - then this leaves at least about 1.5' of walkway. And as we discussed I will get your passive subwoofers with the amplifiers located at the rear of my theater hidden behind the new cabinetry going in with the other components and amplifiers.
Below I have listed from your website the dimensions of your 18" and 21" passive subwoofers currently on your website:
X21P1 – 21” woofer ported - 6” Voice Coil – Passive
Dimensions 32.75″ H x 24″ W x 32.75″ D (including feet and magnetically attached grill)
F18-Slave – 18” woofer sealed – 3” Voice Coil – Passive
Dimensions 24.25″ H x 23.5″ W x 18″ D (including feet and magnetically attached grill)
What are the dimension choices for the form factor variations on your F18 subwoofer?
Do you have any dimension choices for form factor variations on your X21P1 ported subwoofer, and if so, what are they?
What are the dimension choices for form factor variations on your new 21" sealed subwoofer?
Thanks. My installer is coming back tomorrow to start speaker wiring, etc and I am hoping to discuss all this with him and determine which and how many subwoofers I want to order.
