These are Mark W's dual manifolds. Mark had an interesting set of problems to solve with his installation. He used a graphic design program to help solve these problems. I uploaded his files to a webpage with some details as to the specifics of his install. A link to that webpage is HERE.
This is probably the most skillfully hidden IB I've ever seen. 4 Tempests are shoehorned on a manifold below this cast heater grate
Another cleaver install is M. Mitten's hidden IB. There's a basement installed manifold, it's outlet is an opening in a home entertainment unit under his CRT.
Here's the manifold in the basement.
Here's the manifold outlet in the opening in the home entertainment unit. It's normally hidden by a grill cloth.
This is Javier's IB. Javier lives in Mexico and has limited access to drivers. His 4 driver outie uses Cerwin Vega car audio drivers.
This is Jon Foulks 'outie' IB. Jon put the manifold in the listening room. There it was finished to look like a standard cube sub. The outlet is at the bottom of the cube. It fires into a crawl space below the listening room. This is a very clever way to solve the problems created by his particular situation.
Here's the cube with the drivers installed, just prior to attaching the box to the floor
Here are links to more photos of this unique IB installation
This is Rob's "outie" IB just prior to completion. Construction is of course quite similar to John F's IB, shown above.
This is Rory L's quad AL1804 cube install. In this picture these drivers don't look all that impressive. But in the next picture compare the size of one driver, to a fullsized CRT FPTV!
He's tested it and no the ceiling mounted CRT projector image isn't effected by high output from the sub
Below is ThomasW's 12 Shiva's Dancing basement mounted IB.
Note that the Shivas have been replaced with DPL-12s. The change resulted in the need for less overall EQ.
HERE is the URL for the web page with a detailed description and additional pictures
Here's the Shiva version
Here's the DPL-12 version.
Paul W's dual 24" Hartley IB (seen on gallery page 1) was replaced with a TWO of these manifolds each containing 9 Parts Express DVC 15"s.
His website containing more pictures and a review of the performance is available HERE
Jeffery F's closet door mounted IB, 4-AV-15's.
