Great work on those Gregg!! Your Statements and those subs are one hell of a combination. I showed a photo of them to my wife and she just grinned. I think that was her blessing for me to get started! :bigsmile:
Good to hear that you're impressed with the result, Gregg. I'd love to see some final pics of the room too, and keep us updated on your experiments with positioning. With 4 subs you (theoretically) have a lot of options, so I'll bet by the time you settle on something it will sound amazing.
I may have some room pics tonight, my buddy and son-in-law are coming by tonight to help me stack the subs.
I have some room re-arranging to do, I plan on building a rack in the wall for all my equipment and also install a 106 or 120 inch screen (Owen I have seen you in the projector forum, my next stop).
And Doug, I am very happy with my Statements, I still have to apply a finish on them, it will be the same as the subs. The Statements and the Mach 5 subs are a good combination. Having said that, the subs are only for movies, the Statements are incredible for 2 channel music.
I am done, subs are in place and sound incredible, I am to old to play them loud.
I would like to thank Mark for the subs, Graham for the design and everybody who contributed and viewed the forum. I do not plan on building any speakers or subs for a while, it was fun. You will notice one of the Behringer amps on top of my original Polk Audio sub.
Gregg, wow. Those look great. I am not sure that people can really appreciate how much subwoofer is actually there without some frame of reference, such as that door. I have one sub of approx the same dimensions - the idea of 4 makes me giggle. It is interesting how one's perspective of 'well I will never need that much bass' changes, no, evolves is a better word, as time goes on. Again, excellent work.
If the sub is stacked on top then adding a second sub should yield you a 6db increase although it could be less. So try and imagine with Gregg's as he has two identical subs stacked. I would love to see some sweeps of 1 sub then add the second followed by the third and fourth. Just to see the results.
How about it Gregg? Have you managed to run any sweeps yet?
My subs are co-located and I notice quite a big difference to my ear by adding the second sub and there is less need for EQ'ing as I get a much flatter response. The bass doesn't sound so located as it did with one sub.
I look at those and think of the 80's?memorex commercial where the guy is sitting in front of the speakers and holding on to the chair.And just a thought for anyone building a large cabinet,measure the doors you have to bring them thru.a 32" cab won't go though a 30" doorway!
Hi on the behringer ep4000 what did you set your switch to on the back for sub duty as i have one but just cant figure out how they go weather they go to the left or right and and whitch one goes left and which ones go right. Any would be appreciated

You will see me post this exact thread on a couple other places, because all the forums have shifted around a bit over the last decade and a half and I want as much useful feedback from a diverse crowd as possible. I've been sitting on a single Soundsplinter RL-P15D4 for about a decade now...
Just bought a new home and am looking for advice on which of Little Mike's horn sub designs might be the ticket for my theater. Spent my younger years installing high-end audio systems back in the late 80's. Had the opportunity to work with some great audio guys, one who designed the first car...
i am thinking of building a custom subwoofer using a mmats pro audio 12" subwoofer. It is called the procast or p3.0...
It is dual 4 ohm voice coil. I am trying to sell them but not having any luck so i was thinking of building boxes for them.
i Don't know what i should use for amplifiers...
I'm looking for specs to build a large ported enclosure for a Home theater application.
I'll be running (1) JBL MKII 15" subwoofer with the coils in parallel for a 3 ohm load for a Crown K2 amp. So might be around 1500 watts RMS? (If this isn't enough bass I might use a second 15" in an...
