Hey guys, just had a thought while I was pounding on my mfw's...


What if I blow one? The thought came to mind...


Easy my brain responded with an answer, replace them with 18's. Which got me to thinking, are there any 18's that would work in a 7.5 ft3 dual opposed set up?


Not that I think I need more displacement, but hey, I figured if I was dreaming, mine as well dream big....


So dream with me, what's out there that would work?

That I knew, but thanks for the confirmation. I am looking at UPGRADING, to the realm of 18's..


So, anyone?

But honestly more than likely, my next audio purchase will be a new center channel.


Thinking




To go with my monitor 11's.

It's not perfect for them but you could put a Fi SSD or Fi Q in them and get a Q of .77. Modeling shows you'd be up 5db @ 20hz and 10db @ 50hz by going with either of the two Fi options. Each cab would ideally be powered with a EP4000 bridged. In an enclosure that size I show you could run a EP4000 for each Q18 and still be within xmax, but you'd only gain 3 db by going that route. You would gain an additional 2.5-4db below 20hz by going to the LMS but at the cost of an additional $1200!

For now I am going to say the LMS ultra is a pipe dream, with five kids, my money is much more limited than just my wishes.


That being said, are there any decent 18's that would operate in a dual opposed cab, at 7.5 cb ft for up to 300 a piece? If I have to go more I will, but ideally I would like to use one ep4000 to power both cabinets...

Don't forget FI audio.


It seems the golden age of a good selection of 18's has past. Hopefully, that will change.
