    Input on 6 6.5s subs to use

    4* $75 is $300 which buys you a helluva 15" driver. Used they are obviously way less but don't get ridiculous on the box....

    If you have a spot for a 19" rack I would start hitting Craigslist and Facebook marketplace for a deal on something with HDMI switching.

    You state "super small" form factor which is why I reference that. ALL receivers are 19" beasts and then of course it depends on the speakers you use. IMO 3 chn is the bare minimum for a TV broadcast as just stereo really sounds like crap. Once you add 3 or 3.1 small form factor is out the window. My sub is wirelessly connected to the Soundbar and in general solves all our TV needs and is more than adequate for mood music when people are over. If I want to jam out we head into the garage lol.

    The ML I have is on refurb clearance for $500. It "needs" a sub, but works really well for TV. For music it is lackluster compared to my towers, but I ain't got space for that.

    Interesting. Amazon app on the Roku fills in for the Fire Stick. If you have FireTV different story though as that will voice contrl the complete TV. I added one in the bedroom to avoid the "where the fuck is the remote" problems.

    You will need a COMPLETELY different box for sealed or ported. WAY different size. I would first figure out the biggest box you can fit and then decide what to put in it.

    Bar has one analog and 2 digital audio ins. Can't say I get the Roku, Fire, & Apple as they are redundant. Roku >> the other 2.

    Mine too. 6 HDMI's though.

    No, all HDMI into TV and one Digital audio out into the bar. This is the problem from above. IMO a receiver makes a terrible video source though anyways...but if your tv doesn't have it you are stuck

    I have a big arse soundbar and a sub. Does what you need if the above limits are okay. Can come demo it if you like.

    Can't most of those plug into the TV? If so, that would simplify things. Means your TV needs to be on the audio source you want for those but would expect that you don't stream music off the Roku/Apple/PS4/Fire without being connected? Simple boxes don't have many inputs...

    All new SSA DM150.2 amplifier

    Wish I had a car that needed some tunes! Love the heatsink!!
  14. Not afraid of mud here either
  15. Shipping can cost as much as labor. Where are you. ...no dunes here, but plenty of trails.
  16. If you don't like your 12 you will be SEVERELY underwhelmed with a pair of 6.5's. 90% of the T-line discussion on car audio forums are not Tlines, but slot ported boxes. If you can't operate Mathcad, don't have Martin King's worksheets, then expect that your trial and error will be a failure and take MANY iterations to get it to somewhat work. Add to that you are now using drivers that have way less capability so even if you do it perfectly you will have a significantly worse response in every aspect and it is an exercise in stupidity. I understand though that there is a ton of misinformation on the web and it isn't your stupidity, but the sites that you have found positive responses towards T-lines in a car. Don't take it personally, but take everything you have read with a grain of salt and dig through the nonsense. In general instead of trying to be different you should be honest with your goals and build the system YOU want based on your goals and not other peoples imagination. This will save you a lot of time, money and yield way better results.
  17. They aren't in a T-line though like the OP is asking about...

    And in the same volume you can do better for less money. It's a choice of course, but not for the better.
  19. ///M5

    They will sound worse and cost more. There will be plenty of acoustic deficiencies and no benefits.
  20. You've read some confused information.
  21. ///M5

    Input on 6 6.5s subs to use

    More drivers, more cost, less output in either domain you are chasing. It'll be different, but that doesn't make it better. Used to be people built 4th order BP to be different, now the gullible public found different and thought better and there are a ton of terrible installs with happy uneducated owners floating around. If you want to you surely can, but realize that the only portion of it that has any value is the novelty which is super dubious at best.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    I'd like to take a 2 day snowboard vacation with my 10 year old. Any recommendations for places to go? I will slap him in a lesson for at least half the first day and ride with him the rest.
