I'm confirming the delivery of a WorxAudio TL.118SS. (tuning ~24Hz) If that falls thru I will have a similar pro audio subwoofer prototype that uses the same driver. Honestly, i hope there is some good competition, this thing is a beast. I'll front shipping, i just need a trusty caretaker on the other end. I would like to see this run off the I-T8k!
That sounds great Kyle. PM me with the shipping details if you don't mind. Hopefully John J. is going to send one of his TD18+H's in a pro style vented cab. I think he spec'd tuning at about 28hz to me at the WI GTG. I'll have both an LMS 18 and a XXX there but let's be honest, we both know that they aren't going to compete with the Worx in the chest slam / gut punch, 35-100hz department especially in sealed cubes.

I do hope that you don't mean you want the IT8000 bridged into it? I'll not be held responsible for what happens then. Worst case if Robert doesn't show up with the IT8000, is we'll have to make do with the 8002 with it's lowly but quite real 3800w. I just got that amp about a week ago and it is awesome. It's noticeably stronger than a CE4000, looks better, has quieter fans, adjustable input gain, PFC, ground lift switch which completely removed all of the hum and buzz from my SDX's and accepts any voltage 90-240v.

Brandon,

Do you have a laundry room with 220v close by to the listening room? I could always bring one of the PL9.0's . Then we could have a powerhouse amp shoot out too between it and the IT8000.

For some really testing bass, the sound wave scene in Hulk is a good start, although some may not want their sub stressed in such a way.
The XXX says bring it on. That scene was incredible the first time I watched it.

Re: Another subwoofer GTG, Southern Style

I am definitely going to bring the itech8000. I am very ready to see what this thing can do in testing situations. I have yet to get either of these things going.

I have a question. Does anyone know if the itech is able to be driven directly from home 5.1 processors. I do not seem to be able to get his thing going until the volume control is turned all the way up. Even then, the amp is barely lighting the signal light. Still have the -20 and -10 lights to go.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Robert

Re: Another subwoofer GTG, Southern Style

I will have a gain booster by then. Just haven't got around to order one yet. Ricci is also bringing his rane and it has gain boost. You will be good to go with the itech.

Looks like I will remove the tentative from your attending. Looking forward to that amp. A little worried about my home power supply though. Hope I have enough current to run that.

Re: Another subwoofer GTG, Southern Style

Robert,

Is there no input sensitivity adjustment on the Itech? I had thought that there was. It should be a small switch on the back. Not worries, the Rane has a lot of gain possible.

Brandon,

Do you have a 220v outlet for a dryer within distance of the listening room? I could make up an extension cord if you do for the IT8000. I need to make one for my PL9.0's anyway. If not no biggie. It should run off of regular 120v anyway. I just don't know if it'll make full power ( not that we'll need it anyway).

Re: Another subwoofer GTG, Southern Style

I will have to check the voltage on it. I know zero about home electrical so I am just assuming but I would guess the washer and dryer would be on the beefiest breaker. It is close enough to the room that we could use it if needed.

I am going to try to get REW to work this weekend so we can have two setups at once if needed. Only messed with it a few minutes in the past and had no luck. Hopefully getting it to work. I am only using a SPL meter as the microphone. That should work right? I know its not the most ideal setup but I don't want to blow a couple hundred on a mic.

Re: Another subwoofer GTG, Southern Style

If it's 220v you'll know the plug or outlet should be different or labeled. Washers are usually 120v but the dryer which needs more juice is usually 220v. Easy way is to look in your breaker box.

REW isn't too hard. It's the initial set-up that is rough. After you get it all set up and working finally it's cake from there. I can help you out if we get time while I'm there.

Re: Another subwoofer GTG, Southern Style

Getting closer. Less than a month away and we are close to being full on subwoofers. It will be a lot of talk and setup discussion from here on out.

I am literally amazed at the amount of people that want to attend this. At first I thought it would just be neighboring cities, but we have people coming so far from 4 states and possibly a fifth and subs being shipped from as far away as California.

Will update the list here shortly.

Re: Another subwoofer GTG, Southern Style

Subwoofer and amp list updated. Several great subs and huge amps to be in attendance. I would still like to see another commercially made sub or two. I would really like a big EPIK or SVS sub to compare to. If anyone has one and are willing to transport let me know before we're all full up.

Re: Another subwoofer GTG, Southern Style

For anybody following this it looks like the Worx Audio pro sub is confirmed and there is a possibility that a JL Audio 13W7 driver in a sealed cab will be present. I don't think John J. has been heard from in awhile, so it looks like he may not be sending anything. . I believe that there may be a Bic H100 coming too to represent the budget sub segment. Robert is confirmed with the IT8000.

2 weeks to go...So much left to do...

Re: Another subwoofer GTG, Southern Style

To stir up a bit of possible excitement, there's word that Danley Sound Labs may bring a few subs up for the meet. More info when it comes along and things get set up a bit more concrete.
