    I would appreciate some suggestions on a Tumult design using a Marchand Electronics BASSIS LT that would improve on my current sub.

    Priorities are sound quality, depth and slam. It would be used for both HT and music. Room size is small, 8ftx8ftx13ft, amplifier power is whatever is needed.

    Current sub is a 16^3 twin Tempest using a BASSIS and BFD.

    Hi Jack

    Thanks for the reply. Came across a thread mentioning Unibox so I gave it a try. Looks like 56L (2^3ft) should give me a Q of .7, that seems like a really small box, if that's right and I haven't goofed, great! I'm finding that I prefer a higher Q rather than lower Q so is there any other drawback other than power over going for the smaller box?

    Thanks for the info Jack, that LT spread sheet is much easier to use that other versions I've seen. Just need to make my mind up on 1 Tumult or 2!
