    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I think I know the answer to this question but would like more feedback so I can wrap my head around it. I have pair of LMS 5400 Ultra 18" both in 4cuft. sealed enclosures. During modeling with WinISD I saw that they can take 3200 watts each before exceeding x-max at about 10hz. Now if I add...

    Pro Audio
    Ive been volunteering in our church for many many years and have done a fair bit of studio work.

As I turned to find the dog, an old WW I vet began talking in my left ear. I had to check a couple of times...
