Re: Planning My IB

Hmmmm,, I'll have to look into the 18" some more. I'm using a Peavey amp,, not sure the wattage its packed away. I'm also not sure if I could do a manifold in the center of the screen wall with a pair of 18s. I would have to place them in the wall to use the pair, or buy 4,, and thats,,,, not in the budget, for now.

Thanks again guys for the help and suggestions.
Ill post picts again if your interested.

Re: Planning My IB

Well, I hope some of you still will find this thread and guide me through my project.
We are moved in to the new house, and I'm at the stage where the Ht room is needing to be completed.

Current state of Ht.
Front screen wall

Back of room (sorry for the hoses, Filling up radiant floors at the time)


I have been bumbling about trying to figure which IB to build.
First desire:
2 FI 18"
To go this route I must go array.
A transmition manifold would shorten the projection screen size to a size which would make a HT room rediculous. 20"- port 12"- RSC200 2"- trim 10"- suffit. Leaves me with 48" width for the screen.
I NEED ATLEAST 55"

With an array I can achieve this. The back wall of the component room is concrete, so I can brace the screen wall well. My worry is of the baffle step. I am not sure if it applies to an IB array and its effects.

New design.


The second option because of money would be to switch to 4 AE 15" and do two ports.

My main concern with this build is weather my Peavey 8.5c will push those well enough at a 4ohm load
Peavey stats:
425w 4ohms both channels driven
1100w 4ohms bridged.

second is the displacement.
with 2 18" I get 72600
4 AE15" I get 61420

So, my question is,,, which route would you go?
I have noticed that this forum leans towards the manifold side, I'm not sure why?


Thanks for your help and any input.
