I have finally been able to start my second sub build, and it is long overdue. First of all, I have to thank Sonny and the Shack, and Bob and Creative Sound Solutions for the driver, via this past summer's contest thread. I had some early plans, which I mostly stuck to, and the enclosure is a pretty standard ported 1.56 cubic ft., tuned to 24.5 Hz. It ends up with a 3" port, 17" long with a roundover at one end.
The amp I chose was the BASH 300, also from CSS, which I ordered when I won the SDX. I'll have some bracing built in when I see how the internals look, and it does use a double thick front baffle. It looks like this will share LFE duties with my old faithful Tempest, depending how they play together. Enough talk, here are some pics, and I'll keep updating as I go.
This is a very nicely built driver, with some good looking binding posts.
I almost missed the smell of MDF dust!
This is a pretty small sub, almost like a slightly larger, fatter tower PC case.
It's also packaged pretty tightly, but everything should fit well.
Front firing, and I'll have to do a decent job finishing it since I want it up front in the room.
I got as far as cutting out the amp mounting hole, and rounding over the inside edge.
I know it won't really do anything, but I want to round over all inside edges anyway. Makes me feel better.
More to come soon...
