What's the budget you're working to?

Assuming you're looking for a separate amp, will it be in-room, in-cabinet or in another room?

If you wanted to go all out then look at 2 fi sp415's dual 1ohm but then you will need 2x cv5000's to power them at 5000wrms should give them plenty of headroom!! Giving you more output than a usc18.

I was thinking 1 cv5000 with fi Q drivers and antimode cinema. Or Behringer-NU6000DSP-Inuke-Amplifier with si ht drivers and antimode cinema.

It will be in the same room but I can hide it, budget will be around £1400

if you went fi q then an nu6000 would be enough, but bear in mind they have a little more output then the si but not as clean sounding.

I'm just reading about REW it Will Take Me some time to get my head around it. What do I need to use REW.
Thanks
Minimally a known SPL meter (ie has a calibration file, typically means the rs meter) and a soundcard with a line in.

Next step up would be to a USB mic, i.e. the minidsp umik-1.

Next step up would be a phantom powered mic and pre amp (eg Dayton audio emm-6).

Personally I prefer the first or last option for multi sub setup but plenty of people manage fine with the USB option.

To use the room sim takes no effort. You just plug the numbers in and move the positions around to match your room.
