Hi Jake,

Space limitations? You say you can build 4 boxes. Curious to know the max size you can tolerate per box or if you can tolerate 1 or 2 very large boxes instead.

Also, what is the size of the room these will be used in?

Hi,

Nope there isn't much limit in size. 1-2 large boxes will be fine. It's going to be in a large hall to large auditorium. I put 4 as wasn't really sure how many I would need.

Cheers

If you just want that "kick in the chest" feeling then you don't need to go any lower than about 60Hz, that'll save power and increase efficiency. Have a look here for some ideas.

Though this may be true the material he is wanting to play has loads of energy in the 40Hz range. I would look at the designs that claim 30-35Hz performance.

To FILL a large space like that down to 30hz for deep
Bass in music, I'd do a couple (two-four) of Josh Ricci's large horns. (galejhorn I believe?)
Or 4+ TH-18's Both with lots of power behind them (1200+ watts RMS each)

Look at Danley Sound Labs. They manufacture tapped horns that are extremely efficient.
