I am going to get started on the boxes this weekend. The subs have been ordered and should be here in about 2 weeks. They will be powered with 4 Crest Pro Lite 7.5 DSP's. They will be sealed with each sub getting 4.5 cubic feet.

The theater is on the main level of the house so weight is an issue. I have the engineer that spec'ed the floor system coming tomorrow to look at things and hopefully ease my mind about the weight. I figure each sub is going to be roughly 150 pounds so we are talking about 2400 pounds plus the mains.

Here are a couple of pictures of the room.

Have you considered option A but with floor to ceiling cabs with the drivers evenly spaced? That would cover every section of the front wall, sort of like MKs theater.

Everything in that house better be bolted down. :)

I could easily do 6 in the back and 6 in the front. Let's call that option E. Anyone think that would be better than 8 in the front / 4 in the back? Sure would ease my mind about weight distribution too.

edit: scratch that. I forgot about the bass trap vents cut into the riser on the back. I really only have about 100" to work with behind the seats on the back row. Looks like 8 in the front and 4 in the back are the best option?

Thats a tough one as I like an even spread across the back for tactile. You could stagger the rear array equidistant. I'd go eight fronts and four rears. Four stacked in front corners would give max gain plus smooth and consistent across the seating. That rooms a Beaut. Should be a ULF and ULFTR Phenom.

What is stopping you from Option F...besides conflicting with the title of this thread...

Have you consider placing some at nearfield for each row of seats?
I am not going to have space behind the front row. There will be plenty of space behind the second row though. I am using 4 Crowson's in the front 3 chairs and 4 Crowson's in the back 4 chairs. That coupled with the 12 HST's should address the tactical aspect. Plus the room is on the second floor so that should amplify it.

1/2 the nearfield are far more important than double the farfield.


I'd take my rear three sealed 18" over my front five sealed 18"


I might even take one nearfield sealed 18" firing directly into the back of my chair over the other 7 up front.


It's that good.


So, in case I wasn't clear --- put some of those nearfield firing into your chair back - as close as possible.

If I did that I would have to move the front row of seats forward. I am about 12.5' from the screen at eye level with the way the riser is built. The screen is 150" wide. I can't move the front row any closer to the screen.

What about making 6 seats of 18inch subwoofer-headphones dropped down from ceiling columns?


0.12.0 Beat that Atmos!

I like four full towers floor to ceiling. Then place the subs 1/4 off the floor and 1/4 below the ceiling. Wait thats only 8.......Hmmmm I guess 16 is the next option but its your money? Maybe dual opposed as an option?
