  1. An educated guess maybe? 21SW152's ought to do fantastically well. When I ended up discussing about moving the JBLs and cabinets out from under my center channel, Infrasonic ended up suggesting I just use a third Othorn in their place. I ended up suggesting the Skhorn would make a fine piece, but I don't think I have the width space. I guess I could dream anyway.
  2. Wow, impressive. I'd love to see how this turns out. Plan to throw in a couple of 21" IPALs in those?
  3. Two JBL 2242H Drivers I have a pair of these drivers up for sale, really great drivers. I'd love to keep them, but I have no idea where to use them now since the Othorns moved in. - SOLD Enclosures not included. More pictures can be available upon request, especially for serious inquiries.
  4. Thanks! The room is about 11' 10" wide by 22' to 23' long (I need to recheck this. I've mostly focused on the width.). Then you can obviously see the limitation I have height wise by the ceiling. Also yes, I may not really have needed two, but it helps to balance things out with one on each side greatly. They really don't have to work hard here, I usually touch only the -20dB indicators on the QSC amps. Though with some content and movies I've seen -10dB easily enough. And this is just with 2400/2500 watt amplifiers. Yeah, that definitely was a big consideration, I really like the RS18's. Though I still wondered if I should go abit above and beyond and go the route of 21" which I can still accomplish here. Decisions decisions.
  5. I did expect the Othorns to easily overpower the Daytons, and I would love to be able to run eight sealed 21" subwoofers one day too. Even though they may not keep up, I do feel going further like with 21" will still help give me the boost in the infrasonic range I'd want. Since my room is above the garage, the impact will optimal with the suspended flooring. I've considered nearfield as well, though unfortunately there's no way to accomplish this, I'm afraid. Unless I replace the bedframe and box spring with subwoofers for the mattress to be on top of. My bed is behind the sofa. I pretty well turned my room into my own little home theater space. As for the Berhringer units, there are plenty of DSP options available out there, these just were the best bang for the buck when I got them. Right now they aren't even used to do anything for the LCR, just the LFE. Since I got the Marantz AV7703 I can take the DEQ2496 out of the equation since it's in bypass mode right now. What I may do is take the LFE connection from the pre-pro and put it to the DEQ then digitally feed a DCX unit dedicated to the subwoofers. So that way I have all the control I would ever need there. Though I may not really need the DEQ still.
  6. Finally going to make a post here! Especially now that I have good pictures taken of the updated configuration. Speakers: The Elusive 1099s for the Left, Center, and Right speakers. Two Dual Opposed Dayton RSS460HO 18" subwoofers in 8 cubic foot enclosures each. (Two drivers per cabinet, of course.) Two Othorn Tapped Horn enclosures with B&C 21SW152-4 21" drivers The Dual JBL 2242H drivers in the 4 cubic foot enclosures have been disconnected since the Othorns moved in. Voit-10 LX Coaxials in ported enclosures - Side Rear Surrounds. Volt-6 Coaxials in ported angled enclosures - Rear Back Surrounds. KEF HTS3001 Coaxials for Atmos - Top Front and Top Rear Surrounds Primary Components: (As shown in the picture) Onkyo TX-NR5007 - Soon to have a Marantz AV7703 in its place. IOGEAR 8x1 HDMI switch Behringer DCX2496 - Left, Right, and LFE channels. Behringer DEQ2496 - Side Surround channels Behringer DCX2496 - Center channel Tripp-Lite PDU - L5-30R input. Behringer NU4-6000 - Top Front and Top Rear channels Behringer NU4-6000 - Rear Side and Rear Back channels QSC PLX2502 - Right Othorn - LFE (24Hz ~ 120Hz) QSC PLX2402 - Left Othorn - LFE (24Hz ~ 120Hz) Peavey IPR2 5000 - Two Dual Opposed Dayton subwoofers - LFE (1Hz ~ 30Hz - Infrasonic duty) Crest Audio CC2800 - Center channel Crest Audio CC4000 - Left and Right channels. The next steps I would love to take is enhance the infrasonic output of my system. The JBL 2242H drivers will need to be sold off or stored away to eventually make room for either more dual opposed 18" configuration or even 21" configuration. Chances are more likely I want to add in quad 21's to go with the current 18s, as those will be the biggest I can go and still fit in place. We'll see. For now I can't budget for more than simply adding two more 18s in the place of the JBLs to help give a slight boost to the overall output, which I may as well hold off and wait for a big upgrade next. The Othorns by theirselves were a huge upgrade, I had planned on upgrading the amps for them but I don't feel as rushed to do so. With how well they currently perform under the 2400 / 2500 watt QSC amps I am running them off of. The Othorns are certainly a favorite of mine already.
