To update guys, we put the eaw back where it was at the middle of the back wall facing forward as normal and together with the EV Sub at the middle of the side wall, this did the trick. So yes, the "flanking" method works. I can now hear the bass more evenly [not perfect but good enough] at the usual problem spots in the room.

It's the room, not the sub.  Room dimensions and ratio.  Placement of the sub(s) is the only thing you can control short of building a new space.

I am not seeing any reviews on this item or it's application? Also when researching this item I am also seeing "G sub" which I have come across many threads on it on other forums, why is that Cab so popular?


Their kits are supposed to be nice, I forgot what audio forum that reviews home made speakers raves about them. 


I have taken the plunge yet because my woodworking skills are so subpar I am not confident I could actually assemble it straight.  What's sad is my father was a builder and a master carpenter.  I guess it's ok because he couldn't solder and use to splice his extension cords with friction tape.  I swear he had one 100' orange special that was 20 years old, had a plug that the old cardboard piece that went between the prongs was gone and had 10 splices in it.  Oh and he wrapped it around his elbow.

What kind of music? That makes a big difference. Pink Floyd is entirely different than Outkast which is entirely different from Pipe Organ music.

This would be an excellent choice. Buy two if you think you want to challenge the structural integrity of the garage. No cutting involved, but you will have to assemble the cabs and paint them if you feel like it.

These are true SUB woofers. They will dig deep and get loud down low. Stop messing around with PA cabs, because they are designed to get really really loud at a higher frequency and live through all manner of abuse. They are not typically designed to do what you are looking for.

The Dayton Ultimax sound great for a home system.  There's a 15" in a Parts Express enclosure and the dual 2 ohm VS is pushed by a Crown XTi 1002 in the studio system.  It sounds real good and has lots of grunt below 40hz.
