C'mon... you knew it was coming, right?

Subs are lab horns. They produce the buh-HASS that guys with 50 Hz boxes can only dream about. The bottoms (kick bins) are fully loaded to 80 hz so they won't run out of excursion, and run up to 300. Kappa Pro 12 drivers. Tops are 2-way passive, with 2x8PE21 and D3300 drivers, 300 hz and up. 40 degree pattern and acoustic centers aligned. Takes a truck and trailer to move, so the whole rig doesn't get used that often - but just half will blow the roof off a typical hotel ballroom.

It's in 'block party' configuration. Naysayers think it's a comb filtering nightmare until they hear it. Clean and smooth for miles in any direction and it images like crazy at a "normal FOH position". For narrower coverage, 2 tops are stacked tweeter to tweeter, and the midbass stacked in a line next to it. Then there's the 'tower of power', where the midbass are v-plated and tops stacked like a pyramid on top - which I've only done *once*.

Default I built a little sub...

I completed this sub as part of a surround project that I'm still working on. It sounds great.

this looks great! It looks really solid, 350 lbs for something that size is impressive. Do you use any eq with it?

Thanks. Yes, the plate amp has EQ built into it.

I figured I would help populate this thread a bit.

here's a sonotube sub I just finished for my home theater.

20"x36" tube with maple veneer, parts express classic sub.

After watching a few scenes from the Star Wars bluray's, I can safely say that it gets the job done quite well.
