    Hi,

    I've searched around a fair bit, and have found some references to dual Tempest designs, but unfortunately most times I end up finding dead http links.

    I'm curious to know of any proven dual sealed low Q designs. I could try to design one myself with software, but I'd much rather follow a tried and true design. What sort of performance improvements would I see?

    Thanks,
    Martin.

    What about two EBS alignment Tempests, that would be more flexible. One, dual Tempest low Q sub will weigh a few hundred pounds.

    To answer the question, I believe James W Johnson designed a sub dubbed the Big Pig, he may still have the plans, or contact Dan Wiggins at Adire.

    Why not just follow the low Q design from the whitepapers then mount one sub on top of the other?

    well if you do a push pull combo you will bring the THD down so thats a benefit.

    OK, how about this: build one low-Q or mid-Q sealed sub, and if I think I need more, build an HT targeted sub specifically for the LFE channel.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Martin.
