I guess I forgot to mention that 24x24 room will be 50-75% of my living space for the next few years and those badboys weigh in at over 300lbs. Just a wee to big for my taste I thinkIf you want all out get in on he UXL spillover and and/or build dual gallajhorns (sp).
Log cabins in Alaska and they're generally 24x24 (or smaller) with either a full loft of half loft for a bedroom.I have a few questions...
What do you mean by no larger than 24'/24' cabin? Do you have a log cabin?
What does the 5K include?
Speakers and boxes and crossovers obviously...
Electrical subpanel for the equipment rack?
What are your expectations?
Do you want concert volume or louder?
Do you have an adjacent attic or basement you can put subs in? IB?
Any size constraints?
Can you build a false wall?
TV or projector?
Do the boxes need to be beautifully finished, or just painted black?
So this is what I was thinking. Now, what would you build?You seem to be on the right track.
Speakers: I think you are spot on with these.1099 with flat packs x3 $1329
volt 10LX with flat packs x4 720
UXL 18 x2 800
3 sheets of wood for 2 full martys $150
Inuke 6000dsp $350
denon x4000 $629 I was shocked at the price of this...I think it was $400 more a few months ago when I was looking at AVR's.
$500 for misc stuff and finish.
Give the sub amp its own 20A circuit. Ideally run 2 while you're at it so you can give the avr its own, or upgrade to 2 sub amps later.
Get 4x uxl's and tune lower than the full marty +$1300
cv5000 amp with a minidsp if you want a "heavy iron" amp +$575
Some other receiver that will do atmos. and 4 more ceiling speakers. +?
Outboard amps for the front 3 channels. +?
I wonder how shipping to Alaska impacts things, especially for the smaller companies like DIYSG or Stereo Integrity/iST/etc.? That may or may not impact your decisions.So this is what I was thinking. Now, what would you build?
Here's a novel for you:So this is what I was thinking. Now, what would you build?
When not cranking it, it will draw less than 15amps (TV+AVR+subwoofer amp).How much power does this stuff usually draw? It's something I could run dedicated circuits to if necessary.
Define loud?Loud is good and living in the woods usually means no neighbors.
My expectations aren't anything ridiculous I think. I just want something that sounds good and is relatively loud that can handle movies and the occasional house party
