Max Output Before Compression
The FV12 is long gone, since replaced by the LV12R.Has there been any reviews of the FV12? I am looking for a MUSICAL sub that would be at home in a Condo with 5 KEF LS-50 speakers. I am concerned over too much bottom disturbing the adjoining condo units so I would prefer the LF not to go down as low as the FV15.
Complaining about too much bottom end?People that complain about too much bottom end usually could use more bass traps/eq,
Perhaps what he was trying to say is the bass is too boomy? That's just a guess but I agree, I want more bottom end as do most people. However if it's port chuffing then I could see someone wanting to back off a bit. That could lead someone to say too much bottom end I suppose.Complaining about too much bottom end? ... I've read of folks complaining about not enough bottom end, but never of there being too much bottom end. What am I not understanding? ... Have these folks who are complaining, used room measuring software to measure and graph the acoustics of their room? Are these same said people using "quality" room correction software to correct for the acoustics in their room? Are these same folks trying to make magic with a single subwoofer based subwoofer system?
Agreeing with you, in my opinion, that would that be an excellent reason to buy a second subwoofer?However if it's port chuffing then I could see someone wanting to back off a bit. That could lead someone to say too much bottom end I suppose.
Very happy with the pair of FV15HPs and you went DIY FTW-21s?I hear you Bee, I was pondering dual rythmik FV15HP's for my sub upgrade but I decided on dual DIY FTW-21's.
That's some exciting stuff. Hope the box assembly goes without troubles. I'd have to go to a cabinet shop to get the box assembled. Are you going with a 4^3 or 6^3 box?Oh I just ordered them early this week.
But that is only .01% of the room volume... Isn't the rule of thumb ~1%The cabinets will be around 7.5 cu ft maybe a tad bigger. I'm hoping they'll be enough but if not, two more it is
Cabinet size would be a little too big. Haha! I think dual 21's will be enough for me. I could place my most recent build, dual 10", near field to have a little extra mid bass if I need it but I doubt that will be necessary. If you look at at data-bass.com you'll see the UXL-18 and the FTW is basically the same motor and voice coil assembly. Just the cone is different. I'll have them in a bigger box then they tested the UXL in so look to upwards of 4-6db difference as that's what I got with WinISD. Having duals adds another 6db to the output I believe from what I've read regarding subs. So output would be as follows.....
