    Default Rythmik Audio 18s

    I understand that Rythmik is currently working on 18" prototype based on the vented model. Will there be any chance of a possible big brother to the sealed units like the E/F 15s.

    I asked this question on another forum but did not get a reply.... Likely because the Rythmik owners thread went in another direction...a sealed 18 is exactly what I'm looking for at this point.

    Any help in this regard would be appreciated...

    In terms of product plan, we will put ported version of 18" and dual 15" in higher priority. They won't be available until late summer. The sealed version is at a lower priority.

    Damn, I love my F15HP but I would be really interested in a compact sealed high power/excursion 18" rythmik servo, aluminum cone, rubber surround would be mint. Not too much competition out there either.

    Maybe the 18" driver will be available for DIY, like the other drivers at this point. A sealed subwoofer is probably the easiest to DIY, from what others have said. Or you might be able to Salk do a custom 18" sealed sub for you.

    I'm happy to hear that the 18" vented sub or dual 15" sub is a priority. I have a basement theater, where the theater area is open to the entire basement. The space that I need to pressurize is 10,000 to 12,000 cubic feet. I'm thinking about putting up a wall to get the space down to a more manageable 6,000 cubic feet, where maybe I don't need such a large subwoofer. I guess I will have to do a cost estimate though and maybe one of these newer models will be the cheaper option for me. I can understand why Brian is putting more of a priority on the vented models. With most people's newer homes having open floor plans, there is a big demand for big output subwoofers. It is great that we can also be assured that there are options, with Rythmik to ensure the bigger output subs will remain accurate.

    Well I decided to go with a Funk Audio 18.0. I've thought about DIY...I know JS builds with Rythmik...not sure what size or how big a cab you'd need for the new 18s... until one is modded but I want a small footprint <4^3ft moving from a sb13 + xs30se...his curved designs are simply stunning...
