Can get closer to the action. Plus a little more effective enclosure space and no probs cooling the coils. In the darkness its no problem - though definitely wouldn't work with small kids and the exposed wiring.
It was an absolute pleasure , from my end. You pulled out a Metallica disc I forgot I even bought, and hadn't even listened to.... the receipt falling out was a clue. Good stuff.I was invited to another users home today and he demoed his Danley SH50's.
Best/Worst decision I think I have ever made. So now I need to look into bottom end that will compliment the Danley's
@psyduck103 (dad) has (2) dual 18 vented cabs & (2) single 18 vented cabs. the big boys are tuned around 10hz and the singles are tuned a bit higher, powered by (qsc?) amps (not sure on specifics). room is probably ~2k cubic sq ft.. ~150" silver ticket ALR 2.4 screen, epson 3800, paradigm s8's, marantz 7702mk2, 7.1.4. think that's mostly everything.Oh, you can't do that! You can't share a picture like that and not give us some explanation of your setup.
Yeah I've tried a double stack, one regular and one inverted, couldn't tell any difference. However once I go to dual quad stacks, Im thinking of configuring each stack so they face alternate directions along the front wall, so first one points to the right, second one to the left, third to the right and forth to the left. This should give a quasi dual opposed force cancellation. Reason being when going inverted the center of gravity is fairly forward, so to stack four with cones inverted all pointing to the front would not be ideal.Hey, that there looks pretty darn cool! Have you ever thought about trying it 'push/pull' and see if you get any even order harmonic distortion reduction?
This is the difference your friend paid for.People are almost cultish with subwoofer recommendations.
My buddy and I compared his LMS 5400 in my room to my UM18-22 in the same 21” sealed box. (The LMS5400 is objectively one of the best 18" subwoofers ever made)
I have eight, he has two. We paid the same total amount for our drivers. Total of $2K. We bought our boxes from the same vendor/same box. (Of course I spent significantly more on boxes). At the end of the comparison after neither of us could “hear” a difference he said, ‘tell me why I paid this much more for my drivers again?’
The only difference of consequence we could measure/observe was that a single LMS5400 could handle a couple more dB from my Crown XLS-5000 amp. We could make both subs start to distort with the amp, the LMS just had a couple dB more before it cried uncle. However, when played as a whole, eight UM-18 certainly have more output and uniformity of coverage than two LMS-5400.
You guys must've swapped drivers at some point in time. The picture I reposted, the single driver, it has a dustcap. In this, it looks like you're running all UM18s.@psyduck103 (dad) has (2) dual 18 vented cabs & (2) single 18 vented cabs. the big boys are tuned around 10hz and the singles are tuned a bit higher, powered by (qsc?) amps (not sure on specifics). room is probably ~2k cubic sq ft.. ~150" silver ticket ALR 2.4 screen, epson 3800, paradigm s8's, marantz 7702mk2, 7.1.4. think that's mostly everything.
