    Sweet. I assume that's for a car sub?

    Ever heard of Ficaraudio? I planning on using 4 of their IB3 18" in my home with a pro amp. Should be sick, the things are huge:

    You must have a HUGE house. I got an RLP15 I bought last year for a sonosub build but I havent even started on it.

    No, it's a small 13x15x8 room. You might already know this: Infinite Baffle subs use pretty whimpy drivers (those huge things are only $200 each, and can handle at most 400 watts) that bottom out real easy because they have no box providing a "air spring" for support.

    More downsides: you have to use a lot of them to equal the output of a regular sub and driver, and they are usually involve cutting holes in the building, so apartments are out.

    The upside is, they go down below 10hz and provide a very clean sound, and you don't have to spend time getting the box size calculated just right. You can also get away with less power, and hide everything in a hole in the floor, wall or ceiling.
