You could send me those 6 14s in exchange for an entire WO with 2 infinity 10 inchers, and amp and a capacitor.

Or we could all speculate...

Lunarlab is doing a massive WO array, i think 4 per side with 10s...

When you get the 10" WO done, you will forget all about putting all those 15s in your car. They won't be necessary. Grin

I could give them...but then again...JBL would get pissed and i don't think that they would like it too much!  

I should be done with to WO this coming wed! I cant wait. From what you guys are telling me, my expedition is gonna come alive! ill keep you posted. I guess my main reason for asking about the 15's is I wanna get them playing and of course get them stuply loud...(I really have 12) - but was only gonna use only 6 if you guys had any suggestions about using them in a WO.

thanks again it gets bouring around here at times 'cause their is no one around here that comes close to having the knowledge that you do!

Twelve 15s? ???
That makes two Imperials, an iso-loaded HWK15, two Wicked Ones, scaled up to 54x54x21.
Some of us are dying to hear a scaled up WO with 15"ers in it.
You'll get right on that, right?  :D Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

you hit the nail right on the head. that is exactly what i was wanting...a scaled up version of a WO...maybe 4 isobaric? OR we could get stupid with it and do an 8-15 WO (4 per side iso)...i dont know about you but im not scared of getting a little sawdust on me and try something...i just need a little help getting started!

My only problem with a four 15" WO is that I don't have a fork lift anymore. I used to have nothing but fun stacking my 350 lb folded horns up. Those were younger and more energetic days.

Last week I set my 2 iso-loaded 10" WOs up in a club for some friends and everyone (including me, a fairly old, salty crusted, PA tech type who has seen everything, I thought) was very impressed. It was the first time I actually heard them with live music. They had an old Peavey 400W/channel amp and the WOs really sound powerful sitting on the floor in a small club (about 350 seats).

This afternoon I'll be setting them up in a place more than 4 times larger. Since it is Jack's favorite "sounding" gig spot, I'm calling tonight the WO/Jack Acid Test. They will still have way more BASS than ever before, so I expect everything to be "all good". So far, I am very pleased with the 10" WO.

With 15"ers the size will be a concern. I have read about someone planning a 48" WO project using 15" drivers, but never a follow-up thread.  I know scaling all 3 dimensions for a 15" comes out about 54" X 54" X 20", but I don't know if it's necessary to scale in 3 dimensions for a great sounding box. My plans, in the spring, are to build a set of Imperials and a 48" X 48" X 18" WO using a surplus of JBL E140s I have laying around from the old days. As yet, I've not done it.

My point is that you are sort of on your own, but with an audience of many "Monday morning armchair quarterbacks" ready to tell you what to do. I hope it all happens soon so we can start some history here.

Looks like BigAir is the only one to actually build a 15" WO and post pics, but notice the radically angled baffle board.
