Yes sir. My options are limited but I'll go with the best sounding placement. I used to think audyssey/room correction and dsp didn't matter, and in a perfect world it probably doesn't, but learning and using it has given me good results I think. It can't fix everything but it sure helps. A db meter and tape measure is a handy tool, but they can't help peaks and dips.

Thanks Mr Fitzmaurice.

It does well down to 10-15hz? Are there any other options to consider? Care to sell your product a little bit? (More then the description on your main page?

I bought what I thought was going to be a great subwoofer, now it's left me wanting get to upgrade, I don't want to do that a 2nd time. If I built the 30" tuba ht I would pick up the recommended rss390hf.

If you are underwhelmed by your THT, the most likely culprit is placement. This will not change no matter what design sub you use. All the design, driver size, power, etc, etc, will not correct placement problems. In HT, it is always a compromise. Work for the best sound at the most used/important listening position. Adding a second THT at the opposite end of the room can help.

I think he was asking questions about the design before the build if i picked it up correctly.

Let me just say in no way is the performance lacking in the design, quite the opposite actually.

Once you spend some time with the THT other systems will sound like children's toys, even the high end stuff.

The placement would be limited to behind the AT screen which is the length of a 10.5" wall Minus a couple inches. So I would do the best I can in a subwoofer crawl for my listening position I guess. Other option is behind the couch but there's going to be a home made projector stand / equipment rack there.

I dunno, was hoping for more then just links to sell it but customer satisfaction is a selling point. I still go to the movie theater once a week on average and movie theater bass is a thing of its own, I'd certainly like that at home which is what the tuba ht claims.

Restricting yourself to those two locations may be a part of your disappointment. Subs should be placed where they work the best. As you have stated, that would be found by doing the "subwoofer crawl".

A THT can be made in the tall version, and this tall version could be standing, or laying down. Either way, it can be "dressed" to be a part of the decor, either painted or stained or covered with a material such as fabric or leather or....
In this way it can be hid, or it can accentuate the room.

Yea behind the AT screen is where I'd prefer I should say. I'm still in the building process so I guess until I get it some what finished I won't know. I live alone, no friends, no girls coming over, I care about one listening position lol. Hopefully I can make something work.


Where are subs in commercial theaters?

Behind the screen, but they don't have the boundary reflection issues that home theaters do, being so much larger.

I thought they were. Thanks.

So I've read placement in the center of a wall is bad, corners you can get room gain. For one person listening why is the center of a wall a bad place?

Not quite. More modern, up-to-date theaters built the subwoofer system into the under-seat flooring. There are a group of relatively new theaters near me that have very well-thought-out subwoofer, and complete audio, systems in each theater room. I have 1st hand listening/feeling experience with 2 of them. The newest 1 is so much better than the older one. But, ticket prices are, on average, 25-35% higher than the mega-plexes.

Well my cube 15 may be sold, should be gone thursday or saturday.

whats the big differences between the 24 and 30" tht? EDIT: oops just realized I typed 30". is it only 24 or 36"?

I plan to buy a inuke1000dsp and 1 rss390hf for now, that way I can add a 2nd later if I want to. 1000dsp does 300x2 @4ohm

Horn loading increases impedance and that Behringer you mention is probably rated in peak watt rating not RMS.
