best diy subs to use with this setup

Recommended Posts

hi

my question is im after buying 2 diy subs
that will compete with the svs pb16 ultra subwoofer
i want them to go down to the same low frequency
for all out bone rattling wall shuddering effect
and want them to perform as good as the svs pb16 ultra subwoofers

but i want them at a lot lower price to pay

what diy subs could i use to do this role

my setup is emotiva t2 for fronts and rear dutys as well and additional t2s for additional extra rears
plus using a denon 8500 for reciever
a emotiva xpa2 gen3 amp and a emotiva a300 to enhance the front speakers
a oppo 205 4k player
blue jeans speaker cables
a emotiva c2 centre speaker

then i want to use 6 atmos in ceiling speakers

either from klipsh or montitor audio or kef
model to be worked out later which to use for the best wide dispersion and sound quality and holographic effect to be detimined

How large can they be?

 

How much power do you have to give them? (or do you need amplifier for them?)

 

What is the $ budget?

  i want either 15 inch or 18 inchinch

i want the same watts as the pb16 ultra

i would like to use a amplifier with them

my budget is $1000 each for the subs or up to $1200 max each for the subs

as i say i wany diy subs that are a lot cheaper that can compare to the pb16 ultra subwoofers

 

i want to use my denon 8500  and emotiva xpa2 gen3 and emotiva a300

to drive the speakers

 

then i want a additional amplifier to power the subs that you recommend as well

again up to $1200 to spend on the amplifier

thanks

How big can the boxes be.    You could put an 18" woofer in an 18"x18"x18" box ..... or you could put it in a box the size of a car ;)

 

There are quite a lot of well documented builts over on AVS, or similar forums.

Full Martys with Dayton UM18-22s. Amp should be an iNuke 6000DSP with a fan mod. I'm on my phone so hard to link, but go to AVS DIY speakers and search for Marty FAQ.
