Received the DCR lens today. Removed the Prismasonic and installed the DCR. Pretty easy installation, but expected that, since it is a fixed in place lens. With the auto aspect ratio control of the Lumagen and the DCR, I do not have to do anything. When a 16:9 movie or show is playing, I automaticlly get 16:9 image and when a scope movie starts playing, it fills my 2.40 aspect ratio screen. Works pretty slick.

I laugh every time I go to this section, because if this is your hobby, you are never done. :)
I am thinking about making a sub/subs change. Two of my six subs use 12" drivers. Pictures of the 12's below. The other four are 18's. The 12's are very nice 12's having strong motors, full copper sleeves and shorting rings. But I think I want to upgrade them to 18's like the rest of my subs. Have not decided on drivers yet, but have narrowed it down. Will be using 4.0CF sealed flat pack Baltic Birch boxes. Ordered the boxes today. Thinking about using Stereo Integrity HST-18 MKIII's for the driver. https://stereointegrity.com/product/hst18-18-subwoofer/

What kind of power will you be using to drive those 18's? In a sealed box with the high excursion, should be able to really push them.

Either a bridged Crown 2002 or a Behringer NU6000DSP. These drivers do very well in 4.0CF. I have an RE XXX split coil in 8.0CF. It is a low bass, high excursion monster. 54mm xmax each way. The HTS-18's have 38mm xmax. Other 18 I have at the back of the room is a Malstrom-X. I can't remember the excursion, but I think it is 33mm.

The Ultimax UM18-22  driver looks pretty good, especially for the price. I have an open channel on  one of my amps, so I ordered one UM18-22, which I received today. Still waiting on  the 4.0CF sealed Baltic Birch flat pack. I ordered two flat packs, but no discount for ordering only two drivers, so decided to try one first and then decide if I want to get another one or move up to the SI HST  18.

Very happy with my pair of UM18-22's. I went with the PE flat pack and I'm using an iNuke6000DSP to power them.

I have one channel an NX6000D (NU6000D replacement) available. I also have an NU6000 sitting unused. Have MiniDSP10x10HD also available for EQ if I use the NU6000.

I have one 4.0 CF box glued up. Ran the flush cut bit on it last night and then 3/8" roundover. Have run some test tones through the driver to loosen it up a little bit.

New member of the family. Completed UM18-22 in 4.0 CF box. Next to it is an 18" Malstrom-X in 4.0 CF and next to the Maelstrom is an 18" RE-XXX in 8.0 CF. I still have another 4.0 CF box to build for a second UM18-22 behind the seats. Have 2 SI HT18's in the baffle wall.

Started on second box today. Will need to pull another run of speaker wire from equipment room to theater. I think I will be done with subs in the HT for a while. Driver is arriving Monday.

Also this week I fan modded an NU6000 for my family room setup and am using it to power my two subs in my family room. Using a MiniDSP10x10HD for DSP on family room subs. One of the 12's from the theater room was used to replace a 10" sub in the family room. For auto powering off the NU6000 and another amp,  I ordered a Lowell RPC-20-CD. It is a 20 amp triggered dual receptacle. My AVR 12 volt trigger is being used for control. Working nicely, no thumps when powering off.

Front baffle glued on. Once dry, then on to flush cut and round over. :)

Looking good. Mike, quick question. How much did you invest in all of the tools to build your own subwoofers? I assume the ROI is there in the long run, especially if you build more than one. Just curious.

I used to be a commercial general contractor, years ago, so have had all of these tools for many years. Also have a large workshop with large tools. I built my LCR's and I have built a couple dozen subwoofers over the years.
