SVS makes a fine product...any reason why you'd like to out-do it?

Moved to the correct section.

heheh i got that exact sub but its piano black

its loud no doubt and plays low really low but like any bass head i want more lol. but i dunno about the jl never really thought about using them for ht. i do hear alot of good things about the svs cause they are good.

mine at volume -24 (-0 is full blast -60 is mute) can be heard and fealt throughout the whole house eazy. i usually dont go pass that but it can go louder and i do when theirs no one home lol

i was watching an hd-dvd today "apollo 13" and my girl was outside cooking and she feals the kitchen shaking and my roomates kid his like 7 asks her "what is that noise shaking all that house" in a scared voice lol hehehe i told my girl it was the launch and she was like it sure felt like it and to turn that **** down :(

its so hard to debate when you havent heard it.. but i know ur in dbdrag and love the bass ( see sig :) ) but somehow i think i could build a better ported ( 2 6" aero ) enclosure and tune way way low.. around a qtc of .550 or so with a good 1000+ rms amp like a behringer which i think will put out around 1200 or so at 3 ohm

i dont get it .. Whats tuning to 16hz do??? ive seen many movies withs lows and explosions in cars that tear **** apart that are tuned in the low 30s, I know ht is different due to the wide open space but still, is it that different

i wish i knew but in my experience the bass is alot louder with movies then it is with cd's and im sure its the tunning if i raise it the music gets louder but i dont like the way it sounds while watching movies its to loud to often like that and doesnt really get that surprise fealing when watching a scary movie.

play hoods run down by lil white and tell me what happens.. I think that my TL said it was somewhere in the 10 hz areaon the low note bass drop in the begining

In a house, you have next to no cabin gain like you do in even a large vehicle...tuning lower is necessary for a flatter response, where in a vehicle you have a natural boost provided by the vehicle's transfer function.

There is a reason why things cost more than other things. I bet you could probably build a sub that would be louder, however would it be as clean or natural? Most likely not.

W7? Natural? Wha?

:D

I'm just not terribly fond of the way they sound...but they do have output to spare, that's for sure.

Yea.... There is engineering and testing that goes into something that a company produces that the DIY can not do.... So, go figure....
