  1. 10 cu ft!! Yikes

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I have been throwing around the idea of a DIY sub. I chose a fairly midrange sub and amp combo and a really nice guy at parts express helped me design the box. All nearly 10 cu ft of it! :gulp: Is this because of my particular speaker choice. If it helps any, it is a Dayton RSS390HF-4. I would...
  2. Best 12" budget driver for 2 cu. ft sealed?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hey guys, any WinISD pros that can model a good budget(under $200) 12" driver for a 2 cu. ft. sealed enclosure? I have tried WinISD with the Dayton UM12 but I don't feel confident my numbers are coming out accurate. Was thinking of powering it with an Inuke1000 dsp. Goal is to exceed the...

  4. Seating Configuration for 7 1/2 ft wide by 15 feet long Home Theater

    Home Theater Seating and Accessories
    Hello all, I'm in my initial stages of creating a home theater in a small narrow room. This is my only option so there is no room to increase the size. I intend to have a 70-80 foot screen one foot from one of the walls. I am wondering how much seating I can insert without it being...
  5. Suggested ceiling height for small narrow 7 1/2 by 15 ft home theater

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    Hello - I am going to build a home theater in a detached room that is limited in space. It was not built for a home theater but I'm determined it to make it one. The question I have is how high the ceiling should be to have optimal sound, of course I know the equipment will have a factor, but...

    System Setup and Connection
    Hello all, I am so glad I found this website - everyone here seems to be very knowledgeable, certainly more than myself regarding home theaters. I have always wanted a Home Theater and now have the opportunity to create one in a detached room that is limited in space - it's 7 1/2 ft wide and 14...
  7. QSC 3602 amp and 3 cu ft sealed box - what driver?

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    I have just received a QSC 3602 amp that I am going to pair with a couple of 3.5 cu ft boxes that I am building. What drivers would work well in this box now that I have some decent power to drive them (1100 watts at 4 ohms). The reason the box size is fixed is that I am adding these to two...

  9. Sub build for 6,500 Cu Ft?

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    So :neener:, so I have a huge space and need a new subwoofer. Apparently 2 Rythmic RV12R would do the trick but that's $1100 open box and they are pretty big. I'm afraid WAF is going to be an issue here. :dontknow: Given the WAF & cost, does anyone have any magical solutions for this large...
  10. LMS-R 12 sealed ~1 cu ft

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    I'd like a small pair of subs for HT and was wondering how sealed cubes based on the LMS-R would stack up against some of the nicer commercial subs I'm considering. Obviously price is better for DIY (assuming its DIY and not 'DDDDDDDDIY'), but I'm more interested in performance available in a...

  12. Rebirth of the 15 cu ft Monsters!!!!

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    After what feels quite a long time and mulling over various options and having finally sold my dali subs I have decided to go down the route of getting two Ascendant Audio Havoc 18" drivers from my UK distributor Blade Ice where I purchased my previous Q18's from. He has kindly quoted me £620...

    Hey Folks, A new living room config and general lifestyle requirements have led me to build a super small sub (pair). My 7 cu. ft. sub and large towers don't fit in the new arrangement. I'm building this pair of subs as "bass bins" and to serve as stands for my Klipsch RB-15 bookshelf speakers...

    IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    I am a finishing a theater and have a space under the stairs that measures out to approx 90 cu ft. Would that be enough room for a small infinite Baffle setup using 12s. Or would I be better off using the space for a ported enclosure.
