Chicken must reallly like bass.  If chicken is willing to spend a lil more in his HT setup. Ive read great things about B&W audio. But they are expensive. but they have insanely good sq. based on what I read. If I had the dough I'd invest in them. too me 2 fi Qs might give me a headace especiialy in a house..a lot of room for bass to travel.

fun project it looks like. :smile:

he likes more then bass thats why there will be a total of four subs but eight mids and 4 tweets......so its not JUST bass.  Im not that deep into doing this but ive never personally seen a system in a house that had a dedicated bass amp and a dedicated mids/high amp.  Thats me though, like i said im a 12v kinda guy.  This will be fun. ;D

got the subs today and well it looks like they forgot to leave the dustcaps blank....but thats ok Chicken said he likes the logos so no worries.

Added some 1 1/2" feet to the bottom of them.  I wanted to do spikes but i didnt want to bolt up thru the port.  These work fine and get them off the ground at least.

A little 10Ga speaker wire fresh off the role is always good  :D   They are soldered together and then soldered onto the terminals then smothered in black hot-glue.

4-15's in the EXT...18's in the Lade...and four more 15's in the house.

Chicken sounds like my kinda guy.

I pray I can "play" at that level some day.

I have 2 Kicker 12's in my house getting 120w rms each and THATs pretty loud for an HT setup...but my place is tiny...so it makes sense:I'm sure Chickens house is ganksta big thus so should be his HT setup.

BTW Steve-Did you design those ported boxes using BassBox pro or other software?

I only ask cuz I'm curious to try out the "HOME" environment setting on BBp and see if it works like it says it does to compensate for the acoustic gains/troubles of a larger area. I know boxes I've built for home audio/car cabins DON'T perform the same in each others domain.

Man, I love home audio, maybe more than Car audio, but holey shit, 4000+ watts in a house, and 15s tuned at 27hz? I garuntee he will be busting windows left and right. Home windows have Nothing on car windows, they tend to just shatter in place, and fall right out the window sill. Better hope he replaces his windows in his WHOLE house with Plexi anti shatter, shock resistant panels.
