    Friend of mine asked me to put a kit subwoofer together. So, I said: "sure, no problem".
    Little did I know..................:D

    Actually, this would be the biggest subwoofer I'd be building or just assembling and with the lowest Hz highest SPL so far. Should be very interesting listen. I'll stick a mic in it too. Almost 400lbs packed......

    I'll be watching with interest.

    For anyone else interested, there are plans available (and free) for this guy's little brother. It uses 2x Tang Band w8-740p. The drivers in the DTS-10 are proprietary (I think) so even if you had the plans (which are not available) you couldn't build it exactly the same.

    BTW is that pic inside your shop? That's huge (for the big city). You could split that into apartments and retire as a landlord.
    Don't even try
    to sort out the lies
    it's worse to try to understand.

      It's outside my shop.
      I was thinking about building up in the Yard but it's strictly commercial zoning. Other wise it would become like Dambo and all us artists and makers would be priced out by wealthy Manhattan folks.

        Do you have some horn mains to go along with them, something like
        Econowave or ....?

          Thought it was called Dumbo? ( or is that a local joke? )
          A friend in Brooklyn used to rent a rehearsal space ( for his band ) under the bridge and showed me the ongoing gentrification there.

              My friend has 2 sets of line array, Murphy corner arrays as well.
              If I like the results, I may build a copy for the shop and use it with another line array I have. Been toying with the idea of array HT for a wile too.
              In general I do not like horns and this kit sparks interest because it's such a low playing one, so I am a bit cautious but optimistic too.

              Sorta kinda.........
              But loft apartments there sold close to a million $. It's a very nice neighborhood now.

              Nikon D50 which has as much megapixels as modern I-phone. But I do have a collection of lenses. This shot was done with 70-210mm AF Nikkor. Not that it's a beautiful shot anyway but I do like tripod for most situations (not this one ).

                I'm sure you're going to be impressed with these. I have two tapped horns with a 12" in each and they play deep, musical and tight bass (-3dB at 17hz in room).

                How much is this kit?

                  I don't think this kit is available anymore, but as I mentioned, the plans and drivers for this guy's little brother (using dual 8 inch drivers) are available.

                  This kit will have impressive performance but it WILL need eq or dsp, the frequency response isn't pretty. Link provided below.

                    As do all subs, unless you've got a room that has no room modes. But that would mean it has no walls or ceiling, so it wouldn't be a room. :rolleyes:

                      Thanks for making that painfully clear Captain Obvious, but I was referring to the big ugly 10 db bump at 65 hz. Unless your room has a big suckout at 65 hz or you cross over below that bump, that's going to have to be dealt with.

                          On second thought I'm going to apologize for the rudeness of this comment (even though you rolled your eyes at me) but I'm not going to delete it.

                          Over the last 4 days, people are showing up out of the blue to comment on my work, argue the smallest of details that have no bearing on the subject matter, and even question the validity of the entirety of my contributions. These are people that didn't bother to even read the threads to find out the actual topic being discussed, people that don't understand the subject matter at all (just casting votes like a popularity contest in educational threads), and people just showing up to say "you are wrong" but refusing to add any further details despite the barrage of evidence that I provided. This has happened here in several different threads and in another different forum at an unprecedented rate this week.

                          I think I'm going to have to consider taking a break from the forums again before I get myself in trouble. I've had enough and trouble is soon to follow if I don't shut up and go away for awhile.

                              So? It's no more an issue that all the other peaks and valleys that will be present when you put it in a room, and shouldn't influence anyone's decision on whether to get one of these. Those who already have are enjoying the party, a party to which this forum is a very late arrival.
