Really like the strong look.

I see some people got inspired too, that's awesome.
Hope you will enjoy them, and welcome to the club!
Still some work to do, but getting closer! Do you have a picture of that 16x Peerless XXLS?

Only having 2x Scan Speak 30W 4558T00 makes me feel tiny...

View the data online, I'm pretty convinced the 26w would do everything you want and more. That is, if you're not shy about using some DSP.

If you're set to get it working using T/S parameters and no processing, it becomes a different kind of challenge. Especially inside the room. Throwing those woofers inside a sealed box should first be tested (simulated) to see the effect that has. I can't see it working well without some DSP.

Paradigm uses ARC processing, I've played with that in the past.

A first reference to the 26W: 26W-4558T00-II
Great stuff, and thx for the great input
I think ScanSpeak now

Need to think about these then, many choices now
But I wonder if ScanSpeak is a step up from these

Guess what, even in Norway, Einstein is applicable.... and I am confident you are correct on the sealed subs vs OB

I used to dream about infinite baffle bass when I was a young kid, always figured that I would hack up a wall when I finally had a house that I could call my own. Sadly my girlfriend did not share that dream .

In fact she reminded me only a few days ago that these subwoofers will be the last addition to my Stereo setup. All I could think of, if she doesn't "see it" it doesn't count, right?

She did admire my work and said: we need a new fence at our driveway...
And the outside table needs fixing!

Why don't you do more with this talent, you could be a furniture maker...

I'm in the process of installing an IB in the corner of my room, thankfully it's only required cutting out a small section of drywall. I checked with a sealed sub that it would be ok there, got a surprisingly smooth response, just a ubiquitous 40 Hz peak.

Yes, easy to hide an IB array How about an IB DBA?
