What sub(s) for the SLA Pro

#1 Post by Shelby300 » Sun Sep 13, 2020 4:19 pm

Looking at building six SLA Pro 4x6/4.
Have room for two subs, what two would be the best.

Thanks

Depends......what will you be using them for? Live sound, DJ, home theater?

6 - T39 4-25" 2-22" 3012LF
4 - OT12 2512 Melded/NSD2005
1 - T24
2 - XF210

In a bowling alley for cosmic bowling
Want something capable of louder volume but also want it to sound very good

I'm not sure how much room "room for 2 subs" is, but you'll get the most output from a pair 36" wide T48, v-plated.

But, they're big and placement within the listening space can make or break the listening experience.

Have you had a chance to read the thread, Rules for Subwoofer placement and stacking?

I gather this is for the typical array across lanes application...

Two 20" T39 loaded with the either of the premium drivers would have that covered in spades.
