I have about 6000 cubed plus openings to a hallway and a stairwell to fill with glorious bass. Currently, the original Dual SVS CS Ultra package, serial numbers 16 and 17 is providing all the bottom. The Ultras are on the back wall split on either side of the seating area. I've tried them in various locations "stacked" and apart but the current setup with BFD yields the best results most likely because I got tired of moving them all over the place.

Talk of the Epik 18" Conquest "pressurizing a room with bass" and the sheer prowess of the 435lb ED dual 18" 97-900 have peaked my interest. Can't really beat these offerings with a walking tall stick for $2000 or less delivered. I remember plunking down a few hundred more for the Ultras. I really like the one box solution to big bass in big areas and I have the room to easily accommodate both offerings.

So what is my problem?

There is absolutely nothing wrong with Ultras. "I" have the problem. They do a fine a job but they will most likely be available to someone at a good price along with a Samson amp very soon.

The only sub with more output than the Epik or ED would be a multiple driver IB. It's considerably cheaper but some DIY skills are needed. As well as an ajacent room, attic or basement to contain the back wave. My theater is around 3,000 cubic feet and I'm installing four 18" subs with the option of four additional ones.

It is definitely a beast and so far so good. I never envisioned having to admit that there is just a little to much bass in my 6600 cubed playpen and turn it down. It is hands down awesome with HT and suprisingly nimble with music. My personal music taste leans toward any genre of Jazz; Old Motown and its covers; and anything with some goood solid guitar playin' like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Charles Mingus, Bo Diddley, Robert Cray, any kind of Blues plus too much more to list. The conquest is seamless to my ears within the confines of my music preference.

I love it! :D

It has dual 6" ports.

On another note, after numerous tries at placement and position within the undescribably ugly sonics of my room, I achieved the flatest response with the sub upside down (driver on bottom, ports on top) in the back right corner of the area. I guess you could call it a workout wrestling a 200 lb sub rightside up, sideways, upside down, front facing and rear facing at 5 prospective resting places. Whew !!!

I'm not worried about the size of the ports, But what what the output would be like! :eek:

Or worse what could fit into the Ports!:eek:
