    What would be better two m&k mx350 thx subs or one velodyne Digital Drive 18?

    Note that my cinema room is a large one at 15 foot wide by 25 foot long.

    Kinda hard to answer since the DD18 hasn't been released here just yet, so I doubt anyone has heard it. :(

    The single DD18 will have greater depth and a better response obviously but the 2 M&Ks would have greater output methinks. What about using 2 x SVS PB2s, great depth and phenomenal output then. If you can afford 2 x DD18s then that is better still :eek: :suicide: :devil:

    I'll do some reasearch into svs subs. Cant really afford one DD18 let alone two, unfortunately.

    Might be able to go the svs route depending upon price.

    :rolleyes:

    I'm not even sure the M&Ks would have more output. In terms of cone area (the thing that really counts when it comes to moving air), a singe 18" driver is bigger even than TWO 12" drivers! And not by a terribly small amount, either (254 sq. inches vs. 226 sq. inches). By that reckoning, the DD-18 would have more cone area AND more than three times the amplifier power (assuming the MX-350 has a 350-watt amp?)! I dunno about you but my money's on the big Velo....
