Mach5Audio IXL-18.4 in a 18-HWK
03/31/07 at 03:59:27
 
Hi everyone,
I'm in the process up upgrading the subs in my home theater. I was thinking of 2 huge ported boxes and then I remembered the House Wrecker. I would be using 2 subs from Mach5Audio called the IXL-18.4. The requirements for the HWK states " a subwoofer with an fs around 20 Hz, and a Qts less than .38 and a minimum VAS of 10 cubic feet" The IXL-18.4 has a fs of 15.4, a Qts of 0.36 and a VAS of 19.6 cubic feet. Full specs for the driver can be found here. It's a preorder sub with 22mm xmax and an awesome price.

Would this sub work well in a House Wrecker? Thanks for any help.

LLT would perform better for movies.

WHAT UP EKIMOO.

I would be very temped to try that combo. I think the specs look excellent and with that kind of X-max it should be able to play LOOOOOWWW and LOOUUUDDD if needed. The HWK is a forgiven design that can be adapted to most any speaker set up. As for MACH5AUDIO, I have two of the MAW10s and was blowed away by there build and quality. I am postive you want go wrong with MACH5 subwoofer. I also think ported boxes would work good but the size of each enclosure would take up as much space if not more than the HWK18. I SAY BUILD HWK18 AND BOOM!

I agree,
The specs show that the HWK with 2 of these will move cement walls. I really like the theory behind the LLT and the added low freqs might be attractive, but considering room gain and footprint, you could do 2 HWKs in the same amount of space and I am betting you won't miss the 3-4 hz difference in extreme bottom. This would likely be much louder and move more air and also sound better with music as opposed to the 12 or so hz of a huge ported box.

I would love to hear what you think of the HWK with these subs.

Keep us posted.

Thanks for the replies. Can someone tell me how big the cabinet is on a HWK-18?
