Re: My first home theatre build, need help
Generally you tune lower for HT... in the mid teens if possible/practical. Need the TS in order to make a good recommendation...
For power 500 watts is really plenty. You don't need as much power because you don't have to overcome road noise and huge HT enclosures are more efficient.
I ran a Dayton Titanic MKIII 12" in 3.5 cubes tuned to ~20 hz powered off a PE 250 watt plate amp. Had very impressive output and SQ, after EQ'd was able to get flat down to 18hz.
I replaced that with an AVA15 in 5.5 cubes tuned to 15 hz powered off a BASH 500 watt plate amp. It actually sounds cleaner than the Dayton on both movies and music. Plenty of headroom.
