I follow other people's builds as if they were my own, but I am always sad when I don't get to experience the best part.... Actually hearing them...

I'm not sure where you're located, but this week we're having a GTG at my house. If you're within a couple hours you should make the drive!

Ok, got about an hour in with just one playing...wowzers!!


Josh is right, this has a very "neutral" sound, very crisp. It's also very efficient, and has no issue maxing the SPL meter at any frequency 30hz and up with just one.


It's also very efficient. With two Ghorns, I have the receiver sub out at -8db. With all the gains and volume knobs in the same position, I have one othorn at -10db, so with two I'll need to turn the gains down on the amp.


I'm very impressed, this thing slams. I was contemplating replacing a single clone with two CV-5000 amps, one per Othorn, but the clone is far more than adequate in 4ohm stereo to push these.


I can understand Josh doubling the bracing. The Ghorns and these generate MASSIVE cabinet pressures. It's unreal.


I'm done building subs for now

Just curious of how you will have them all setup in your room? Any pics?

I'll have to move the Ghorns to the back off the room.


I'll post some pictures tonight.

That is a first world bass problem right there.



Seriously nice job with the builds.

Looks great Luke...You are crazy with all that in what looks like a not very big room. If the Othorns don't rock your face in there I don't know what to tell you bro.


If you want to try something really fun put one of the Othorns in the cargo hold of an SUV and strap a decent sized car amp to it.
