    I've finally managed to slake my thirst for extreme sub performance! My last (and final) upgrade has been to STACK my pair of SVS Ultra subs and mate them with a Crown K2 (2000watt) power amp. Anyone interested, here's a link to some photos and "how to" info.

    Stacked Ultras!

    Advantages to stacking?
    1. Smaller footprint.
    2. Both located in the best room position.
    3. Focused sound. No phase diff.
    4. Looks cool! [​IMG]

    Thanks, Rus. I'm fairly handy overall, but am in no way a real woodworker (or drywaller/electrician/plumber/painter/etc.) but can do just enough of any to get the job more-or-less done as long as you don't look too close [​IMG] The materials/techniques I used anyone can do. Standard Home Depot stuff.

    Looks neat and I have to say the woodwork looks professional from what I can tell in the picture. I'm sure you and your family love it.

    Good thinking Gordon. A guy needs to do what a guy needs to do. My daughters are approaching collage in a few years also so now or never is my thinking also.

    Does anyone know what is the minimum gap spacing to stack 2 SVS 16-46PC+ up like that?

    I'm looking to stack 2 up too, but afraid if stacking does more harm than good............

    Hey Gordon... your spacer that you built looks great as it matches your other stuff. However... if you wanted to draw less attention and make things look like one tall unit you might try a spray can of black car paint. I would be interested on how that looked. Plus you still need matching ones on the other side and this would hide things much better... just my opinion

    Congratulations Gordon. Just one more thing about which I’m envious. An awesome setup.

    Just a wonderful setup[​IMG] I just wish I had the time and more importantly, the skill to set up a front projector system like yours. I have a 55" Mitsu tv and it is quite good, but I would rather have a projector. Money and the skill to run cables in ceiling and/or walls is beyond my ability and my wallet to subcontract. Keep enjoying it!
