  1. I have not read any post on using an electronic XO and measurements to align the drivers.  Using a passive XO system results in the excess energy from the amp dissipating in heat.  The tweeter needs very little power compared to the woofer.  I've tried it and switched back to one wire of a nice gauge  and sold the extra amp, he, he.🤑

    I've come to realize that I'm years out of date in documenting the configuration of my main rig.  Dual Rythmik sealed subwoofers (E15) have been on the screen wall since May 17.  Not shown is a third generic subwoofer on the back wall, which I will someday replace with a Rythmik, possibly an L22 (dual 12-in sealed).





    The room looks great!

  3. I have the Marty cube. It is a great sub and can keep up with my larger subs with closer placement.  I would not hesitate to buy one or two of the Marty Cube or any of the other Marty subs.  The guy behind GSG Audio designed my Deep Invader  and BackBum Buster subs.  He is well known in the DIY AVS forum community and is highly respected for his designs and subs.  His subs can stand up to JTR, PSA, SVS, etc.  It really all comes down to the driver used and size.  One of his subs is very cheap in comparison to the other manufactures. The true measure is price /  performance.  The finish is up to you!

  4. No need to keep all the driver sizes the same.  Get the biggest Atmos speaker  that will fit in the ceiling. There is no real reason to keep all the drivers the same size.  They all have different jobs and no reason to make the same tool work all these different jobs.  I have 4 1/2 to 10 in. drivers in my system.  The 4 1/2 in. stand  out as much as the 10, 8 or 6 in. drivers.
