    I know the cv5000 is regarded as good amp to run subs but what about the cv1800 and the cv2800???? Would these be good to run some Dayton HO 18's.

    Which one would you pick for sub duty? I was in the market for the CV5000 until I came across the XLS5000. Now I do not know which way to go. I know the CV5000 has tested what the specs say but I could not find test results for the XLS5000. Anybody have those? My plans are to get four SI18...

    LMS 5400 Subwoofer Build Questions: 1. Are people using polyester (Dacron) polyfill for a SEALED LMS 18" sub? 2. Is it a good idea to use vibration dampening sheets on your sealed subs? 3. Should I add additional bracing? Here are photos to check the dry fit all components before gluing...

    Please help. I have had my 6 si 18 flat packs done for like 2 months and have been waiting for my cv5000 that I ordered from musicians friend. It appears that this thing is like endless back order. What other amps would work? Thanks

    I currently live in a nice condo, but have neighbors on both sides. This condo is also very cheap for the area. We lucked out in finding it. I just got a UXL-18/CV5000 a little while ago, and also have plans for building SEOS kits. We’re looking at a detached home tonight that probably...

     It looks like my deal with the dual Caps S2 will fall through, so I am back in the DIY game.   My plan is to build 4 subs: either SI or Dayton 18” with 4 ft3 Flat Packs. Most likely, I will run them in pairs, so I am looking for at least stereo or even 4 channels, if want to keep my options...

    I've had this sub pre-ordered for 3 months, and it just came in today. The only other subs I've had were a Logitech Z-5500 (lolz) and a TC Sounds Epic 12". This thing is a beast in comparison! BTW- the databass review of this driver mentions that the plain dustcap is some kind of flimsy plastic...

    I'm currently exploring my options for a new amp for sub duty to drive my 8 x 18 Dayton HO setup. I've got both of these choices on order now, but they're back ordered until mid July or so from my source. Both are about the same price. I can cancel either one as needed. Old school honkin'...
  10. What's Your System Configuration
    Update: March 16 2021 The biggest upgrade has been going to a Hover Boss setup, both for the front row and back row. I did that back in April of 2019 but haven't gotten around to updating my room thread. The front row has 2 JBL drivers per chair and the back row riser/couch has 4 drivers in...

    I need an amp for a pair of 18" sealed subs. I'm trying to decide between an NU6000DSP or NU6000 with Mini DSP? I'm leaning toward the NU6000 with Mini DSP in case I ever add another amp and more subs. Are there any better options in this price range?

    Hey guys, i heard this amp is loud. Is there a fan mod to make it quiet? Also, what type of circuit breaker is recomended for this amp to run properly? Just as an FYI, I will be running 4 Ultimax 15" subs in 3 cubic ft boxes each. (Diygroup flat pack) Any other info regarding the amp or...

    i have not found one, and i feel that cerwin vega is often under rated, so here is the thread! i have cerwin vega vs120s and i love them. i have them as front channels in a 5.2 set up, and sometimes i wonder why i even have two subs. one 8in sub would be a great addition to my setup as the...

     Hey all! Just ordered a cv5000 amp and I need a dsp for my subs. Minidsp looks good and I'm running a marantz sr7005 receiver. Any insight as to which model would be helpful from those of you who own one of these amps. .....Also I'm looking at which mic to get to use with a laptop to do the...

    Gorilla83's subs received the nickname "The Silverbacks", so i figured i would pay homage to that and call my project "The Grizzlies" since they will have a old school rustic look to them. Maybe nicknames are earned not given. i dont know. I have decided to build these after reading through...

     http://www.guitarcenter.com/Cerwin-Vega-CV-5000-High-Performance-Professional-Power-Amplifier-H69833-i1688723.gc This amp looks very nearly like my Crown XLS-5000. It's a beast. If you've got a DIY project or otherwise need a very powerful 3u battle tank amp -- this might be a great...
