    Looks like Harmanís packaging engineers are still coming up short.

    Luckily that beast is built like a tank, so Iím sure it survived. Looking forward to your review.

    I realize not everyone has suffered from the decades-long Sit-and-Sleep advert/commercial barrage...

    I see your Sub18 and I raise you...

    A pair of 5628's. Like you said...Someone had to do it .

    Anyway this is your thread so if anyone wants to know anything else about them I'll start a fresh one.

    Wow! Those should blow you right out of the water!!

    Very cool and I for one would love to hear about them. The box looks to be the same size as the 4719ís that I have. I tend to like the tuning of the theater subs so I bet I would love those!

    As for me I have been out of town on weekends and juggling a construction project at home that has displaced a ton of stuff both inside and out so the SUB18 remains in itís box at the shop. I hope this wraps up by months end so I can get back to normal in November.

    No stairs Rob.

    Iím dying to try this thing!!

    The 5628s are quite the fun speaker! Not too many cinemas use them due to their cost and inefficiency (compare them to the 4642A, for instance, and you need to apply 5dB more power for equivalent SPL in the passband). But you can always tell when they are in use...you'd swear that the theatre had "butt-kickers" in addition to subwoofers as the seats will vibrate. They are pretty awesome.

    Cinemas with the Onyx screen will have 5628 as they are part of the the Onyx system specification. We are starting to use them in our Dolby Atmos rooms now too.

    Finally! Merry Christmas to me, and the neighbors.

    This SUB18 is a monsta!

    I am trying it with my 4365ís and driving it with a bridged I-TECH5000HD.

    Today I could not find the tunings for the SUB18 on the M2 page so tonight I am winging it.

    Tomorrow I will dig in and get it dialed. Fun fun fun!

    I don't believe I've ever seen SUB18 tunings but if they exist they are going to be pretty basic (e.g. HPF). I suspect room nodes are going to be the biggest contributor to it. JBL does claim that there are tunings for the M2 with the SUB18. I just haven't seen them.

    It's been a little while, but I think the Sub18 tuning shows up when you apply M2 with sub within Audio Architect. I don't recall it having a separate tuning file. (...or a separate drop down)

    I found it for sure once. The download for a SUB18 on a bridged I-TECH 5000HD. I donít recall exactly where for sure. I should have put it on a thumb drive then, but I didnít have a SUB18 at the time so I didnít

    I am going to jump back in tomorrow morning. I will look in Audio Architect but I donít think thatís where I found it originally.

    Thanks guys.
    Barry.

    Crown sent me the file about two years ago when I called them, I will find it on my computer report back if no one comes across it. I wonít have time till later on this week. It was specifically for the M2 and locked unfortunately.

    Thanks,
    Scott
