maxmercy has been helping me with the sims, I'll get the input data for you.


No ******* contest, simply 20hz at 140db using the 5100 driver.

The music I play is Drum and Bass and Dubstep. Both have measurable content at and below 20hz. I have heard this particular music on many direct-radiating systems and none were as capable as the THTs.

The DRwiK turned out great actually, even worked with the 12w0s.

With the THTs the upper bandwidth gets a little mushy higher than 80-90hz.

Haven't decided on the kickbin thing yet, this sub build is my primary focus right now.

How big can each enclosure be?
Arn't your THT's 36" x 36" x 24", 18ft^3, or 509.706L externally?

Yup

As small as can get the job done, I'd like to try and keep it shaped so I can place casters and handles for either rolling or 2 person carrying. The THTs were a tad frustrating at house parties. I may do up a pair of ported enclosures just for houses.

wi:

I am certainly not one to argue with the direction you want to go. However, I'll put out one thing I've found about 'uber-drivers.' They typically don't live up to their uber-rep, especially end of the night, when voice coil heating, and other factors are figured in. I have typically found that several cheaper drivers does better than one big expensive one. That is why my hornresp sim was for a quad of 3015lf's, not your chosen 5100neo. My sim was only 200watts into each driver, only 50% of the coils PE. If you'd like a good example of compression, look no further than lelands own T48's.. ProSpeakers Forum - Fitzmaurice Titan 48 - Wayne Parham, October 21, 2007 at 14:31:26

Just so you'd have an idea of what I proposed, here is a cartoon of it. I don't know if this fits your idea of correct size or not, but it would be easy to put wheels on it, and make it a one man job to move. Personally I would cut it in half and put strap handles on each side, so I could carry, not wheel.

anyway, good luck, and I look forward to seeing your hornresp sim so I know better what you are contemplating.

That build looks relatively simple in comparison. No final design has yet been settled on, but I'm contemplating all options.


I am pretty locked on the 5100 however. It will be a good experiment to see how uber the driver is. If anyone can break it, I can

You should see what I did to a DVC voice coil hehe.

yea... once you get an idea...

I congratulate you on your drive, and persistence...

You break that quad 3015lf big box down into small 250 liter boxes -- you get a modular system that scales from house parties, to getting the cops called in from another city. The spl chart is 250watts per driver * 16. (still half price of 4 neo5100's)

sorry, I'm like you... I get an idea, and stick with it. Right now that prevailing thought for me is multiple small boxes. (I'm getting old, I think...)

Have fun, and post your results.

That sim you have there is for 16 drivers right? So 4 of the quad 15" boxes?

Awful damn flat.

And dividing the big horn into 4 smaller horns is a good idea for scalability.


Don't get too hung up on the price of the 5100, I'm direct.

And WiSound -
You do realize the distance needed to hear a 20 hz wave correct? IE You are never going to be in a house with a big enough room for you to actually hear it. Now the neighbors down the road will for sure. And the neighbors down the road from them as well.
Side note - built some McCauley 6174 18" reflex cabs back in the 90's.
18 cubic feet tuned to 25 Hz. Built 6. You could dry your hair with them and not hear a thing since they had a low pass of 30 Hz. Move back 60 feet and you couldn't sit and your eyes wouldn't focus, testicls would bounce in your sack. That was a beast of a driver back then. Damn fun.

So what is your top DubStep track at the moment?
Favorite DnB track?

TBH it changes daily, gotta do top 10s sometime. The new Phace LP is sick.

All time DnB demo tune is Original Sin - Decibel, main bass is centered at 35hz.

Well I cant remember my MySpace log in at the moment so I cant check out that Bone Loc track. Less you got another link for it?
Checked out 2 other tracks by artist. Typical dubstep to me.
The Lomax - Artisan VIP mix. Been there over 10 years ago. Though it does get nice an low.

So far my top 2 dubstep tracks are
White Lies - "Death" Chase & Status rmx & La Roux "In for the kill" Skream rmx.
Course that one made Skream HUGE. Chase & Status - well they are just good. Numerous DnB tracks by them I like.

Rule 1 - if you have to be drugs to dance to it. It isn't dance music.
Rule 2 - if you have to be on drugs to feel it - it is just fodder.

1% great
2% good
The rest is just crap made for a buck.

So what about those inputs?
