    I'm currently moving into a new(to us) home. It is quite a bit older than my current house, and has plaster walls/ceilings. I have (4) 15" dayton IB's which I will be running off a spare NAD amp I have laying around, or 2 plate amps I was using previously.

    To the point, should I worry about the plaster? Has anyone experienced this in the past? There is also a very big picture window that will be approx 6 ft from the output of the sub manifold.

    Anyone had issues with either of these? I know the fiance will be screaming if something breaks. She will be even more pissed if she is there when it happens and sees the big grin across my face. I need to keep the SAF factor up for future projects.

    Thx everyone.

    I grew up in an older home with plaster walls. The plaster has not fallen in over 100yrs. I did not have a high powered stereo though. My personal feeling is that plaster walls are stronger than drywall.

    I live in an 101 year old house w/ plaster walls, big picture windows, and hardwood floors. My subs have never posed a problem to the walls or breaking any glass (that would be very funny though[​IMG] ) BUT I have to unplug both subs to just watch tv. The dribbling of a basketball is enough to shake the house w/ bass all the way down. Apparently plaster doesn't absorb ANY of the bass, and lets the whole house get down and rumble. You may have better luck with your set-up though, so good luck.
