Who knows if I will actually do that, or just go with a entirely sealed L/R/C Titan (using Matts custom horizontal Titan-DC) for my center......



And again because I'm indecisive, I've looked at the 1299's and even 1099's and debated if thats what I'd do with them as well since the ports on the 1099's appear to make adding a grill a bit difficult.....



But I've not actually seen the 99's in action beyond a brief glimpse at a buddys house for a pair he was finishing for someone.


Too bad you have to miss out on our gtg. I’m gonna be showing my 1299 ported towers. And I have the titans. You could get a nice side by side comparison there.

GO! You will never find a better show for the price lol.... Bring CDs/Flash Drive as it’s a lot smaller than other shows so your able to play your own stuff in just about ALL the systems.

I have three friends that exhibit there. DouglasConnection, Blowtorch Audio, and AudioThesis.

Tons of fun, super chill!

To put it in perspective, they had a 500k system there, and a set of Danny Ritchie bookies for 139 in kit form lol....

Basically mostly small shops and lots of DIY guys there!

Would you mind sharing your cutlist as well just in case. I like blisters design but if that baffle seems to close to comfort to cut, this designs is just about the same height as my stands right now so this size would still work good as well.

No worries I appreciate it. Hopefully I should pick up the wood next Wednesday and hopefully be building them by the weekend.

Backs

I did consider the 1099 but those 1299 seemed to good to pass up. Yea I am a limited on space right now but do plan on moving to a bigger space in about 2 years. I doubt I would fit the titans so the 1299's was the biggest i could get.


Don’t let @blister64 setup go to your head. He really isn’t as talented as his videos suggest. It’s really his wife who is the cool one!

He’s heard my 1099’s and they do not disappoint!

Yea that amp was much bigger than I expected. And heavier. I have a rack it will be going in though, so I had the space for it. If you want/need a lot of power and don't want to buy multiple amps, this should power almost any setup you need!
