  2. JL 12W7 - Down Firing

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hi Everyone! I have been floating around for some time but decided to make the plunge. I have a JL 12W7 that I plan to build a down firing sealed enclosure for. My enclosure will be 3/4" MDF 15.5" wide x 15.5" long x 17.25" deep (tall). It will have a 2.5" baffle in order to sink the driver in...
  3. Down Firing Sub

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I can see an advantage in a sub that fires down verses one with the driver mounted on a side. The sub's driver would be more protected. Does anyone have any opinions as to what the differences would be from a sonic point of view? Thanks, Paul
  4. Firing up my analog rig

    CD Players | Turntables
    I've heard some really fine examples of analog reproduction recently, which has sparked interest in revamping my rig. I have a fairly decent 'table, so I am looking at cartridges and modest phono preamp, and am going to build a DIY wall mount. Turntable is an h/k T35C with less than 10...
  5. Down firing 18

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    Is there any issue with using the SI HT 18 or the RS18-HO in a down firing build? No one seems to be doing a down firing build with these drivers. Will gravity be an enemy?

  8. Downward versus upward firing

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hey there, I'm in the final stages of integrating a sub I just built into my home theater. I built a PR designed sub with a TC Sound LMS 5400 and two AESpeakers PR-18 1600s. It was originally designed to be a downward firing sub (that is, it can sit 6" off the ground). Since the sub will be...
  9. down firing vs front firing subs

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    Some of the recommended subwoofer makers have both down and front subs. Can someone tell me if there are significant differences between the two from any given manufacturer, other than where the openings are? Just as an example, BIC makes the F12 (front firing powered) and the V1220 (down...
  10. Can I place a down firing HSU sub on it's side?

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I am thinking of picking up an HSU VTF-3 MK 2 to replace or possibly use along my Energy S10.3 sub. I am pretty sure it will be a huge upgrade from my 10" Energy sub. My problem is, if it is a problem at all, I have to place the HSU on its side due its height. Is the VTF-3 MK 2 a down firing sub...
  11. Front firing tall standing sub w/sealable slot port

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I was just reviewing other sub designs and looking at slotted port sub boxes like my Velodyne and I was thinking of how people usually have to compromise between musical performance and home theater performance. So what if there was an easy way to switch between them with a way to change or even...

  14. Downward Firing Sub Options

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    Does anyone know if ED subs can be special ordered in a downward firing configuration ? I have cats that like to claw things so downward firing subs work best. I might try ED directly but sometimes this is quicker. Thanks

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    I just finished painting my 15" dayton after having gotten my new router toy and putting a nice bead on the corners. I tried experimenting with the direction and I have found that rear firing with reversed phase seems to sound best, is this a common outcome? The room is a bedroom/attic (im...
