Re: Shiva-x build for noob's first

So when people say Sub woofer tuned at 20 Hz or 19Hz , What exactly do they mean? I am a beginner and I have read about sealed and ported subs, How do you tune a sub?

Regards,
Dev

Re: Shiva-x build for noob's first

Tuning is accomplished by the enclosure size and port size. Normally modeled with software that predicks the outcome. Winisd ect.

Re: Shiva-x build for noob's first

ok guys, what is the easiest way to cut the hole for the driver, the opening for the amp and window brace?

also, what size/type of screws for 3/4 mdf? i thought about pre-drilling the mounting holes with a small bit to ensure the mdf doesn't split once assembly begins. thanks in advance...

Re: Shiva-x build for noob's first

mlkmgr, any updates on your build? I just built this same box last weekend but haven't bought my sub or amp yet. I put my old Sony 12" sub powered by a 100w amp in it and it sounds 10 times better than the enclosure the Sony sub originally came in.

I use sheetrock screws. You want to predrill for these or risk splitting. The drilling and screw situation can be more complicated than it appears, maybe it's overkill but I like to drill the outer board larger than the outside dia. of the threads of the screw, so it doesn't bind...then also countersink the head. There are tools that do this but the same can be accomplished with a set of regular drill bits.

A router and circle jig can make very nice cuts for the driver but if you aren't picky a jigsaw will work and may be more readily available and/or cheaper.

Careful working with that MDF, it makes a lot of nasty dust! Work outside and/or use a dust mask if possible, I prefer plywood but that comes down to personal choice.
