    Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    I have one diy 18" and I'm working on building a second matching one. The one that is completed already has a Dayton spa1000 mounted. I have someone who wants to trade a crown cl4 (1200wx2 In to 4 ohms) for a Fi driver I am trying to sell. I'm just wondering how a pro amp like that would compare...

  4. Just bought 2x SI HT15D2 & Behringer amp. What do?

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hello, folks! I have been lurking here for a little while, and watching all of the amazing stuff going down, I thought I would like a piece of that action. Basically, I am trying to build 2 big honking subwoofers. (The rest of my system is satisfactory for me, but my powered Klipsch 12 just...
  5. 2x SB13U or 4x SB2000

    Hi Guys, For those who have gone down the multi sub route, have you experienced the same jump in performance going to 4 subs from 2 subs as going from 1 sub to 2 subs? Up until now I have been bent on getting 2x SB13U, but playing around with REW room sim. I see that it might be advantageous...

  7. 4x 18" SI or 2x LMS U

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I have killed one of my SDX15 again. This would be the 3rd time, so I have realized that I cannot run ported subs for my HT because I am asking for too much sound - 2 15s won't do it, and their demise is either thermal or mech. So I have found 2 used LMS-Ultras from trusted guys for $1500. OR...

    Not sure if this is the correct section to post this but iv just bought a Crown XTI 4000 to power a couple of stereo subwoofers in my system. I would like to connect the Crown to a Naim NDX as its source. The Naim OUTPUT has only two options 2xRCA or 1 x Din. I am using the RCAs to connect to...

  11. 2x LLT behind AT screenwall depth limited

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hello. Having already built 3 subs before I'm now intrigued to build one or two LLT to place behind my upcomming AT screenwall. Because of depth limitations behind the AT screenwall the sub(s) can only be around 12-14 inches deep. However they can be 8 feet tall and 2-3 feet wide. Basicly a...
  12. Already have 2x Dayton Mk3, help w/enclosure

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hello, I already have a pair of 12" Dayton MarkIII's sitting in the closet and am nearing a chance to build a sub. I agree with the LLT idea and use would be 98% HT with a bit of music mixed in. I have what looks like a large space approved by the wife. External dims would be best limited to...

    Creative Sound Solutions
    hello, I'm building 2 subs using a CSS SDX-15. (thus 2 seperate subwoofers!). I will go with either a 120l closed design, or a [email protected] ported design (still have to decide). However, I'm currently looking into an amp that will be able to drive these babies... Pure spl is not important, it...
