Yeah I dont get an error when putting in the params. I get that message when I create a new project. If you are using the same vers can you try a new project and see what you get. All my other driver files come up green and ok. Wierd.
Well I am all for dual opposed sealed. If you have the room stick with your boxes but I like the smaller sealed look. Money talks so I do like the ssd. If you can get the extra money then go with what your budget can get you. If I could I would just go with dual opposed sealed wiwh a powerful driver such as the sp4 and then save up for the rest. Thats expensive but for me I have to just get mass overkill other wise I keep trying to add more.
Four SI 18s would be awesome also and you would need less amp so this option is more budget friendly.
I am waiting for a shipping quote for 4 dayton HO's to make my mind up. For me me so far 4 SI's in two dual sealed is top at the moment and one inuke 6000 should run both. I would need to borrow some top up funds but I think it would be worth it for sure. £1500 for two dual sealed would be killer. Worse case would be two SI 18's in my 15 cu ft boxes which would still work fine and give me tonnes of output but sealed is where I want to be.
Only 12" for now. They will be bringing out other drivers later but not the same as they were before. He stated that they would be similar but they will be going a different direction. From what I gathered with his new partner they will be more expensive and aimed more at the class of TC Sounds Ultra. But I only say the Ultra as in quality. So meaning the 12" and whatever they make will be aimed at higher quality.
SI is the way to go I believe. Four to start and then add later if you want. Only need a small amp in comparison to other hard hitting 18's also.
I got my shipping quote from parts express for the daytons and four shipped to me is $380 all in. Not bad. Nick quoted me $480 for four SI's. Now if I could get the quote down to that , that would be swell.
Very true indeed. The main issue I am having is that plonking a single 18 in my enclosures and running my low tune spl at 10hz is the same as a pair of dual sealed which is where my max excursion is reached. For that I only need to run 650 watts into a single ported but 2000 watts to the dual. See my dilemma. Lol.
My mid tune is running around 115db at 14hz and 118db at 20hz for one ported sub with the hpf set so no over excursion is reached.
I have no doubt that the two big ported subs back in my room would produce massive spl but how would it sound compared to two dual sealed.
I wont get into the ported verse sealed debate but with you having a pair of cabinets already why not just get a pair of SI 18's?
Then if you want down the road or whenever you can get another pair. I love my sealed subs. I have always like ported cabs for music but sealed for HT. Now the one thing I miss is my horned sub. FLH Tactile performance was amazing compared to my older ported cabinet. But I wont even try and compare the two because it would be comparing an apple to a potato.
Budget friendly just a pair of SI 18s for your big cabs. Then seal it and see what you think. Either way remember a pair will need about 10-15cuft depending how you want the Fc. So big cabinet or .......big cabinet. lol
Thats the thing my big ported subs sounded very clean especially in either low or mid tune. High tune I never really liked. When I switched to sealed which gave a qtc of 0.78 approx and eq'd it was so lacking in low end when compared to the low tune ported. I wasnt lucky enough to run duals to compare. It sounded slightly punchier in sealed but not by much in my view. My issues at the time was running 2 ohms stereo so the amp was under stress with low frequencies. That would not happen with the SI's as I would be running 4 ohms stereo which will be alot better.
