  1. Yes I know of the sub crawl, thank you for reminding me it’s since lipped my mind and will probably implement this technique on finding the proper location for it. I had a sw112 klipsch sub I believe and loved it for years. Was looking to upgrade and wanted the biggest and best I could find and went with a pb16. I liked it a lot but it still wasn't enough then came across jtr. I remember before just looking at that sub and videos of it just thinking if only I had that beast and how cool it felt imaging having it and that it would be all the power I needed. My goal was to get the most power possible but still retaining fidelity, another huge want was to have a sub that could go sub sonic and do that with the utmost authority. I found that with the captivator4000ulf being tuned to 10.5hz and being able to do that at around 110db and going flat in most rooms to single digits and maxing at around 130db. Mind you this was measured out side on databass so inroom response would be even more considering room gain. All that aside I wanted a beast I wanted something that I would never need to upgrade from, and I didn’t care about fit and finish some people might hate the look of it but I love it, pure power. I don’t care about room size or doing things by the book in some instances considering I’m running 4 rf7iiis and this sub in a 19x11 room roughly with 8’ ceilings. I don’t want the room to dictate what size speakers I get. I guess if I’m giving up some audio quality so be it. Maybe someday I’ll try something smaller to see the benefits. But I wanted end game, doing copious amounts of research and the final straw was my woman being on board and pushing me to get exactly what I wanted and to not settle. Lol and no it wasn't on sale or anything when I bought it they were going for about 4 grand and I got him to give me a 5% discount and a better deal on shipping. Which right after I bought it he raised the price to 5 grand and my rf7iiis raised in price too so I thought I made the purchases and a good time. But believe me this sub is worth every single penny and really when you feel and hear it’s performance it’s a steal. I have furniture slides which actually work very well with it making it so I can basically push it on my own the hard part it just getting it off the auralex acoustic base it’s on to rest on the sliders. Thank you again for your info I will implement the sub craw technique. I wish you could hear it’s power and the quality of bass it’s other worldly. I also am very passionate about movies which I’m basically speechless about like music in regards to it’s performance. Words don’t do it justice. In short I’m a mad man I will most likely have more than one in due time. There’s people that run 16 of these in there room!!! Hope all is well cheers!!
  2. I have arc genesis on my anthem avr and I really also want to get into rew. Idk when I will could be some time I’m sitting about 1/3 into the room from the back wall and my sub is up against the left wall about 2/3s into the room from my front wall about half but not quite . There’s Definitely a big null where I’m sitting I’m guessing but hard to know until I get into rew or arc and run some sweeps. From where my sub was in my last house and my mlp the bass was ridiculous I need some time adjusting to my new spot. I do want to move it and probably will it will just be hard to move it and find a spot for its 300lbs and Dimensions (HxWxD)41″ x "39.5″ x "20.5" (HxWxD) so it’s basically a really big refrigerator. It’s a 4000watt rms dual 18” beast. Thanks for the info I appreciate it!
  3. This is sickening and totally vexing lol. Well I got everything setup except my room and the where I have my sub I’m having a terrible null/suck out of bass I need to fix. Good thing it’s such a beast with unlimited amounts of power lol. I’m pretty happy with it I will figure it out to share with you guys soon thanks btw.
  4. https://next.photobucket.com/u/Youngd123 thwres the progress let me know if you’re axtaually able to view the video first time trying to figure that out. Very happy with what transpired over the past couple days, took about 8-10 to set everything up and I got a lot more to go. Still really need to fine tune everything and calibrate everything and fix certain things. But I’m happy with how it went thus far lol how is a rough draft but amazing to me.
  5. I tried to take a photo to show you the sub but it just says everything is too big. Any tips to not have to go through all the rigamarole of having to edit them and resize them every time I want to post a picture and just have it quick and easy? It’s coming along great pretty m ya h got everything in place yesterday I’m setting all the cords up today should be rocking out later tonight.
  6. That was my system before I moved. I wanted to show you other pictures and videos but it just says everything is too big, very annoying.
  7. Your system is insane, Im freaking out trying to figure out how it would sound, and what kind of numbers it is capable of. I’d love to hear it. Badass system man really well done I can see you put a lot of time, energy, and love into her. Enjoy
  8. How does she run? What kind of music do you listen to. Did you wrap those yourself? Also what inch woofer are the subs? Sorry for all the questions lol
  9. No not exactly but I have a good idea of where it will be , it’s so big there’s not many optimism to choose from. Then again if I wanted I could probably just rearrange the room around it lol. Also, thank you this thing comes up to me over half way and I’m over 6’ and weighs almost 300 pounds. It’s just completely bonkers but it is well worth it. The things it can do how much power it puts in the flick of a remote and how much authority it has at basically any frequency it’s a must have. The power is other worldly and it matches beautiful with my rf7iiis. What do you run my friend? I will let you know where I place it when I get there and probably have pics..
  10. Will do, I will probably wAit till the weekend when my girlfriend is off work to help..
