My home theater has been completed since roughly March 2015.
No need to go into the virtues of an IB setup in this forum :T So I'l cut to the chase....
Eight FiCar IB318's powered by a Sanway FP14000 (240VAC).
Since IB setups do not have the luxury of being able to move the sub around to find the best placement to smooth response, I decided to place the drivers around the room to help smooth the frequency response as much as possible before any post EQ'ing.
The effort paid off! Four drivers mounted in the front of the room, two per side, and a pair of drivers in each rear corner of the room.
My intentions were to cover all the subs with a grill. This is why they are all inset, so the grill will be flush, but in the end, I enjoy seeing the drivers. I enjoy seeing ALL the speakers , which is why none are hidden.
I think I paid around $90-100 12-18 months ago. I simply turn the contrast all the way down. It's NOT distracting in the slightest and is really nice to have for a quick update on the time and EASY to read.
I have a complete build thread which has all the most recent pics/info in the first post located HERE.:unbelievable:
Cool, thank you for the information on the clock, neighbor(ish).
I want build a "Wood Block Clock" (Google images of that) and install it in my equipment rack like you did.
It needs to be a large clock, as it'll be fairly far away from the seated position, but I want it to be "camouflaged" behind wood. I don't have a HTPC, so I'm still in the market for a "plain ol clock".
I'll definitely check out the build thread, that room has much more creativity than most (mine included).
Hi guys, I'm planning on building an IB. My movie room is 15.5W x 27L x 8H the garage (otherside of the IB) is 28W x 30L x 8H. My loose plan was to make a IB with 4 18's in the right corner where my svs PB ultras are located. I already have a ep2500 to power them. So my question is what drivers...
Hello, I am brand new to this and have been trying to learn about speaker building. This may seem like a dumb question, but the answer will help me understand more than I knew before :smile:
Would it be possible to not have an extra room, but just have a cylinder from each woofer go out through...
Drivers arrived today from Ficar! 4 big ole boxes. Everything seemed to be smartly packed and there was no damage even though one of the boxes had seen some abuse.
My wife is scared and she should be...:hsd:
Not sure If im modelling this correctly. This is telling me that I'd have to go up to 600W per speaker to hit Xmax. I've read in other places that 250-350w would be the most you'd want to go with dual opposed IB318 subs to prevent from bottoming out.
