I would go with a Shiva-X if you are looking for a 12 or the maelstrom if you want to rip your house off of it's foundation.

Bro, a lot of stuff on the LFE track of modern movies (action movies, particularly) extends down that far.

A couple MJ-18s isn't a bad idea. Or if you're willing to cut holes in your walls or ceiling, a bunch of Fi IB drivers would work, too :)

No sorry I put the link to the sub. I like you have been wanting to do a sub and got to listen to a demo of the svs sub and now want one.

Look for a sub with a Fs of that Hz or a little higher 18-20 Hz.

05-07-2009, 10:28 PM
maelstrom x has a FS of 17.1 :fyi:

mabie an infinity kappa perfect? they have a low fs and good xmax, both of which are good for ht use.

yea but at what db level? Im sure it could but probably nobody on the face of the planet has enough cone area/power to do it. Germany was working on a sound gun in WWII thats somilar to what you are talking about

Not sure what your budget is but I have a maelstrom right now and it's has clean out put but I'm not happy with the amount of output. If you got the cash to get something really nice I'd grab this http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=294-690 This is what I'm most likely going to go with in my next setup.

Or you could wait a few more weeks and hit up Kyle Keating or Thilo Stompler there going to be back at it again building top notch subs :) I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very vague question....... is it a TC sounds TC9 or is it a TC9 based subwoofer? TC9 is just the motor. You can definetly have that motor reconed into **** near any app you have tho.

Yeah almost any company that makes recones can recone a TC9 motor so you won't have a problem there.. I also noticed you build boxes have you thought about a sono tube for your ht?

Shii, i just tossed a Phoenix Gold RSDC 12" into a 3 cubed box ported at 20hz and it sounds pretty **** good to me, im only feeding it 100w. Dont want to rattle the walls, just add some depth.

I have thought about it for sure....I recently saw a thread on them a bit ago

very curious about it

I'm new to the whole ht thing. I'm set in my car till fall, now I need to work on somethin for the house. Not sure what I all need. But I think I'm gonna try and build and use a trinix tower kit from parts express, and a sub of my choice. Just not sure what to do about a stereo reciever and sub amp:crazy:

is this just something small for your room or like for a living room? If its just something small pick up a dayton on partsexpress for a lil over $100, put a few hundred watts on it and be done. For a large room, thats another story.

everybody over at avs is tryna convince me to one, but i would have to buy an ep2500, and maybe a mic2200 and i think one other pice of equipment at he same price of an ed lt/1300 plate amp. and really, am i gonna hear an audible difference between 1300 watts vs 1950 watts?

No, you won't - and that is "if" the Behringer produces 1,900 watts. The plate amps are really quite easy to integrate and for a few dollars more they are worth it to some people.

Acoustic Elegance IB15 or the AV15 with some passive radiators, would sound amazing, should have some of the lowest distortion on the market, and wouldn't be super expensive either.

best deals i have found on plate amps is from ebay, they blow up the subs, just buy the whole powered sub 'broken' for like $40 and get a 250w plate amp, **** the suba and box. Does yamaha still market their 'servo controlled' bullshit?

Similar to car audio, there is no best. It's based on preferential performance and size available for box.


You basically choose for what application you're looking for. There is not a single best subwoofer.

I have a Shiva-X in a 4.6 net cubic foot box tuned to 16 hz and it is incredible, powered by an O-Audio 500w plate amp.

i knbow, cause i'm getting an ed lt/1300 and it doersn't have a ssf on it

I would advise against having no SSF in HT unless you're running sealed. Even mine tuned to 16 hz bottomed out occasionally with SSf set to 16hz, so I now have it set to 20 hz and don't have that problem anymore.
