So I compared a custom diy JBL 4722n (2225h & 2453h-sl drivers) with the high-end Titan 15. I played them single speaker in mono, level matched with a Harmon curve applied with the ability to instantly switch between speakers as music is playing. I had myself and 6 other people listen blind with a variety of well recorded music.
How much does the 4722n cost with the upgraded drivers? I assume both were well broken in.

This isn’t a derail. Keep talking!!!
I love the comparison conversations. Cost helps us keep everything in perspective when comparing speakers.
This also isn’t my thread. So I shouldn’t speak.
lol, maybe I'll start a new thread for those interested in a diy JBL 4722... there is also a huge thread on these speakers with a ton of good info but it's super long and most isn't related to a diy option to build.

When MTG90 and I worked on the Titan-615 we both thought the wide shallow cabinet would be very popular. Unfortunately I have about 90% of the original run of those cabinets still sitting on a pallet at the old shop......they rarely got built. Probably like 6-9 cabinets were ordered in that configuration over the course of a few years. They might end up in a fire pit at some point. :D
I'd buy 2-3 full titan 615 kits right now if you found the parts and cabinets lying around haha

I really don’t see the benefit of huge drivers in mains when running pro subs. Pro subs have all the midbass one can want. I don’t get it.

In the spirit of DIY'ers everywhere
1. It's complicated
2. Because I can

Between the huge drivers in the mains and pro subs you’re probably assured you’ll get the desired response at the seats. One or both could have nulls to be worked around.

I understand the why or the try, been there done that. Not necessary when using capable subs.

I'm curious as to why you'd want 18s in the mains as well - especially when you have 21" pro subs like MK said. Is there a gap these are supposed to fill above 100Hz?

He did the 818's because he is waiting for his JTR215 to show up and had already sold his 630titans. From what he has said so far about the 818 they sound like a great option. I am planning to get them when I finally get my theater built to go with my hs-24's. That should be a awesome combo.
