Re: Building the Pulse...

Like the flare shaped end of the port how long did that take to get the smoothness or roundness or shape?

Have you used Saturn black spray paint because it looks like same colour as my diy sub?

Top marks anyway Sonnie.

Re: Building the Pulse...

Thanks Andy.

I routed it out with a 1.5" roundover bit and then sanded it down... did not take long at all.

The paint is truck bed liner.

Re: Building the Pulse...

Hi Derrick and welcome to the Shack

Thanks!

I never have figured up the cost, but I suspect it would be around $800-1000 or so for the driver and materials, unless you could catch a good deal on the drivers, which have been known to surface all along.

The software used to design it is WinISD... we have a Sticky Thread that explains the use of it and where you can download it from.

Re: Building the Pulse...

Thanks...I am trying to build subs and speakers, so I am just looking at what everybody else is doing and gathering some info. I am 16 and I just bought some klipsch XF-48's, so I owe my parents about 1000$'s still, so I can't build anything yet .

Re: Building the Pulse...

I thought about building a sub using an audiopulse driver, but the idea's still fermenting in my head. Very nice enclosure, must have taken a long time to build and cut. How much cubic feet of air is their in that enclosure?

Re: Building the Pulse...

Check out the first post... it will give you all the details. It ended up being tuned to about 18.7Hz, so the volume or port is a bit off from what I planned.
