[Emphasis added above] Brian, you've doubled up on me twice now with the 8-18's, even though this is a spectacular deal, I don't think I can keep up! You have a huge amount of amp power in that room, and even after some smoking (I still can't believe that happened :nono, you love to improve and expand. Kudos to you - you've become my new HT/music listening hero, can't wait to hear you future listening impressions. Just keep protecting your ears, and keep the music marathons to a limited volume max - except for the bass! :clap:Hello Everyone,
I ordered 4 SBE-118's and a MQ-600 to go with my existing SS-18.2's and my MQ-600 amp! I've moved around some furniture, have another 20Amp wall outlet, 12/2 wired, 20Amp dedicated circuit breaker ready for the new MQ-600 and the 4 new subs. I'm looking forward to the Eight 18's tight (and loud) bass!
Coming from 3 ported subs, I've come to appreciate the Sealed Sound. I don't think I would have been disappointed with 4 VS-18.1's but glad I went with the sealed. I agree with MKTheater that sealed can be as loud and as impactful as ported, you just have to add more subs..., And they go lower.
I'm also blessed in that my wife would let me put 20 subs in here if that is what I wanted but I have to say; even though my existing subs have a big wow factor with my friends, they do take up some real estate!
I currently have 11.2 and am toying with adding some ceiling speakers for Atmos but am going to wait awhile to see how the format shakes out.
I've spoken with Craig on two occasions in the last couple of weeks and and am impressed with him just like I was a year or so ago when I ordered my original SS-18.2's. I know he may not be popular in some forums but I appreciate people that honestly voice their opinions Knowing they will be vilified by some. I do wish we lived closer together, I would love for him to hear my system when I get my new subs hooked up. I think he would be a fun guy to just hang out with.
I also hope Craig is able to stay in the A/V business for a long time to come. I know this is more of a Hobby/Side Business to him than anything else but companies that offer True Value products and/or services, with the corresponding low profit margins, are difficult to sustain...
Sorry for the ramble but just wanted to share my excitement!
I'll let you all know my impressions in a few weeks when the system is up and "complete" (for now).
Blessings Everyone and Happy New Year, Brian
My visit with him was extremely fun and informative, it would've been even more epic if he had your Chase designed subwoofer system!
