Re: Dayton IB385-8 15" sound quality?

I just ordered a pair of the Fi IB318's 4ohm (4ohm seemed to be the most versatile).
$550 delivered. They say it could be a 30 day built time.

Probably will end up going with the EP2000 amp.

Re: Dayton IB385-8 15" sound quality?

Sorry for dragging this out but I sold a few things at the house today and came away with some extra cash. I can afford to buy a 2ohm capable amp now instead of having to wait and use my existing...

Re: Dayton IB385-8 15" sound quality?

Good idea. I'll test drive it first before definitely saying that just the 2 drivers will be enough.
But I'm 99% sure that 2 drivers will be enough. As mentioned earlier, I just want proper bass....

Re: Dayton IB385-8 15" sound quality?

I will definitely try this with my amp. But I don't want to be missing my 450w/ch for my front 3 speakers for very long, so I'll have to get another amp soon.
What models would you all recommend...

Re: Dayton IB385-8 15" sound quality?

Thanks for all the input.

So far with pricing, 2-Fi 18's are only $50 more than 4-Dayton 15's.
Unless something else changes my mind, the Fi 18 option seems to be worth the extra money. That's...

Re: Dayton IB385-8 15" sound quality?

Those Fi's are looking better and better. If I were going for highest SPL there would be no question but to get the Fi's. In a balanced system that has respectable bass output, I think the Dayton's...

Re: Dayton IB385-8 15" sound quality?

I'm guessing (never 'assume') this is a comparison of 1 on 1. So if the amount of Dayton 15" drivers is doubled over the Fi 18"er's, then maybe the 15's can handle it reasonably well.

More than...

Re: Dayton IB385-8 15" sound quality?

I just checked again on pricing of the Fi IB3 18", for some reason I thought they were more expensive than that. Parts Express lets you ask for a discount for bulk purchases. I don't know yet if they...

Re: Dayton IB385-8 15" sound quality?

Yes, I know how to do the 'sub crawl.' My 2 current subs are not in their optimal position because this is a multipurpose living room and available space is limited.
I really should do it for the...

Re: Dayton IB385-8 15" sound quality?

I am going to try 4-15" drivers in one box which will be centered directly above my front 3 speakers. Amping: just for experimenting before I buy another amp, I will use my ATI AT1506...

Re: Dayton IB385-8 15" sound quality?

I'll try not to forget the obligatory pic with the head in the hole. I've gained a few pounds over the years, we'll see if my head can fit through.

Re: Dayton IB385-8 15" sound quality?

Thank you, I always value your input.

Mostly typical attic that is 44'x28', the area of the great room does have a cathedral ceiling which would reduce the attic size a bit, but I figure it's...
