    I got most of my acoustical treatment from sounddeadenershowdown.com.

    Starting with some leftover Dynamat Extreme and CLD tiles.

    Next came some closed cell foam (CCF). For the floor, I managed to get some thick foam runner mat from Lowe's. It was cheap because it had a messed up edge.

    Not pictured:
    Soundstream DTR1.1700D running the sub
    Soundstream DTR4500 running the Polks
    Mosconi 6to8 DSP

    Future plans:
    Replace the Polks with Morel MDT12 tweets, HiVi 3BN mids, and Exodus Anarchy mid-bass
    Additional Soundstream DTR 4.680 amp
    Rebuild the sub box
