Re: DIY sealed sub build

Looks great so far and $200 to ship that driver isn't bad. I am looking to ship two 21" mach audio FTW's so hopefully won't be much more than that.

Re: DIY sealed sub build

Ive gotta put the museum off past empty builds in the skip first before I am allowed to build anything else. Mind you, she doesn't know anything about the 21's yet. LOL.

That's going to be a nice surprise seeing two 21inch drivers

Re: DIY sealed sub build

I am hoping that the 7-8 cu ft boxes will ease the pain over the 15 cu ft boxes she has had to look at for the past year. LOL. If I build them low enough she may not even see them.

Re: DIY sealed sub build

I guess a 50% reduction in size should be welcomed

I've a feeling i might be in trouble when she see's my sub box, it looks a bit larger than i thought

Re: DIY sealed sub build

A bit more progress, but made a mess of the size of the sides. Only visible at the back luckily.

Any suggestions on what to fill the Kerf gaps with?

Re: DIY sealed sub build

I would use either "no more gaps" (or whatever you have available locally) or alternatively a polyurethane glue that expands as it sets.

Silence is golden but duct tape is silver.

Re: DIY sealed sub build

Sorry to reply to an old thread but what driver did you go with MattSPL?

The choice of drivers in the UK doesn't seem to have changed much since you started this thread (Sundown, Ascendant Audio and some Dayton drivers can be had from UK/ Europe now) and my thoughts/ looking at the availble options seem to have followed the same path as you (albeit I've built a pair of 120.9W sealed subs while I still think about something bigger ).
