If you are gonna mess around, build Mini's or full Martys and drop HST18's in them instead of messing with the Dayton.
That way you get Spl AND Extension with the new amp.
The footprint is no larger...just the height!

That didn't take long bud! LOL

Re: Wondering

What are you after, more SPL or what? Is the amp clipping often forcing you to turn it down? Two SI 18s is a lot of sub already!

Wondering

First I am thrilled with my MartyCubes and the SI HT18D4 subs no complaints. The problem I have now is what if. Lately I have been thinking of upgrading not so much as far as rebuilding the enclosures for deeper bass ( mine can be heard around 16hz ) but adding more power. I know my current subs will not handle it but what I was thinking about doing is getting another 3000DSP and 2 Dayton Audio UM18-22. Each sub would be driven by its own amp. The sub would be wired in series and the amp set up for bridged mode. From what I have read the 3000DSP will deliver 2200watts. It just seems to me that what I have is close to 2200 ( amp is run in Dual Mono at 2 ohms per channel ) if I double the power the volume would have to improve. I am aware the 6000DSP is probably a better choice however if what I am thinking about doing is feasible then to save money the 3000DSP is a better choice 270 vs 370 ( of course hindsight is always 20/20 I should have bought the 6000 to begin with )
So does anyone think its worth it or should I just scrap the idea. An ideal solution provided I had the space would be larger enclosures but as it stands I have no more room.
Any comments?
