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
I would like to build the LLT. I will be using the Ultimax 15" DVC. Also have (4) 4" x 18" flared ports to use of necessary. The enclosure will be behind the couch so it will have to be narrow 18"/20" but up to 30/32" tall and 50/60" long. Recommendations for speaker/port location would be...
I should have taken more pictures of this build, but I did most of the assembly in a hurry one night after the rest of the family was in bed. Anyway, I had a full marty with a Dayton classic 15 that sounded amazing but I was suffering from massive room gain in one corner and the inability to...
Hey guys, so budget is a limiting factory for my build its a 500mm cube I don't mind ported or sealed but need sub 30hz(my mains comfortably get to about 35 before they roll off too steep)
I am in the UK so somthing available here would help as I would have to spend on shipping & import duties...

Mainly music but maybe movies in the future.
Drivers: Eminence Lab 12
100liter probably around 90liters usable.
Ported optional Sealed.
Dual 4" ports.
Tuned to 27hz.
