    AVS member Rob M. (notnyt) is a bass aficionado. That's clear the moment you see a picture of his home-theater speaker system, which is far too massive to hide behind a screen. Rob's home theater, located in the bottom floor of his home in Mastic Beach, NY, is truly exceptional when it comes to...

    Has anybody heard both of these drivers? If I go for the LMS-Ultra, i’d like to have the cabinet built by either Funk Audio or a local woodworking service. I want to get the cab veneered in Brazilian Rosewood to match the speakers. If I go for the 18.0SE, i’d spring for the passive version as...

    This is a continuation of the discussion in this thread. There was some further discussion here as well. My current low end setup, chronicled here, consists of 8x LMS Ultra 5400s in sealed enclosures with 4x FP14000 powering them, pictured below. Kind of absurd to upgrade, but that's what this...

     Thank you in advance for your input.   I am going to build a subwoofer to pair with a set of North Creek Rhythm Signature speakers, which I built 8-10 years ago ( http://www.northcreekmusic.com/NorthCreekKits.html ).  I am sure that I am biased, but I really like the speakers.  However, they...

    This is a continuation of this thread . Most of you are familiar with my current setup which is pretty over the top and think I'm crazy for wanting more. Regardless of that, I do want more. I feel the sealed enclosures I built left a lot on the table between 10-35hz that I can pick up by going...

    So, I've been concerned about xmax with low frequency signals around 17-20hz at high levels. Often times if I'm pushing too far the cones in my subs will tap the spiders. I've been looking around at other drivers and nothing at the moment is really catching my interest. The talk of a 24 with a...

    I'm looking to build two subs around 18" LMS Ultras. I've built a THT in the past and don't really want to get into making the cabinet for these. Is there someone out there that can make or recommend a good cabinet maker? I've seen people use ED in the past with good results but have been...

    Hi All, Revisiting after a long time. I currently have dual CE4000s running dual subs (LMS 5400 18" with Dual 18" PRs). CE4000s are indeed the best suited for these subs but they are "LOUD". I tried fan mods and one of the amps died a few years ago which I had repaired by Crown so far. Amps...

    So I'm all but deceived into adding 2 lms ultra 5400s in 3-3.5 sealed enclosures to my 2 dayton Titanic MKIII 15s. I currently have an EPX 4000 powering the Daytons, but I'm cursion what amp would be best to power the ultra 5400s. I'm cheap so I've only really looked at the class d cheapo Peavy...

    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...

    I'm in the maket for some new subs, and had my heart set on a pair of seaton HP F2's but......I started to look at some DIY options. Particularly the LMS 5400. To build a LMS that has nice components would cost roughly $2200 and to buy a new HP F2 would cost $2600. The F2 has two 15's and 2400...

    If you were to use the clone ft14000 LG amp, what is the best driver for a sealed enclosure, lets say we choose an 18" driver and 3.0 cu ft. I will be using at least 4 drivers, and one possibly two amps.... We all know sealed enclosures put a huge demand on the driver and amp, my thoughts are...

    Before I went subwoofer awol 5 years ago, there was a loudspeaker company called acoupower, it appears to have gone out of business long ago after the arrest of its owner/engineer Carlos Beltran. For those of you who owned their products or were at least educated about them, I am curious if...

    Hello again - I realize this could be fairly subjective but late night curiosity got the best of me. What are your thoughts about how clean or accurate they sounded. Price aside has anyone heard both and said wow the LMS sounds way better or Dayton sounds way better? What are your impressions...

    So I've been waiting for the you UXL-18 to come back into stock and I was going to build a small sealed box and power it with the lt.1300. But I have a chance to pick up a used lms 5400 Ultra locally for a good price. My question is, would the lt.1300 be powerful enough for the LMS 5400 ultra?

    I decided to take some measurements on some of my LMS ultra drivers, as they did not seem to be reaching the advertised excursion levels. With the driver free air, I was able to see that on the inward stroke, it would easily hit the spider support which is just over 1.5" from the cone...

    Since I had my ultra woofer out to check on clearances for science and such, I figured I'd take some pics and vid with the wife's awesome camera. So, here is a gallery with 24mp pics of one of these as well as some HD(1080p) video. Gallery[/URL] Video
