Re: Shiva X Extended Bass Shelf

The wife came home and said "it looks like an oversized waterheater. You can put it back in the shed" .....

It would be a skinny water heater. The overall design looks great. Wives are predicable though. They don't like too many things that are large and odd-looking in their living room.

Re: Shiva X Extended Bass Shelf

If I have this right, you didn't get a single piece tube, but bended a couple sheets of laminate around the circular bracing? If that's the case, I hope the edges of the laminate are sealed extremely well.....it wouldn't be cool to go to all that work and then end up with air leaks, ruining the tuning and output

That's right. Three seperate pieces glued and screwed to the braces and endcaps.
I ran a bead of liquid nails down the lengths of the legs before forcing each piece in.

After it was alltogether I then ran a bead of "No More Gaps" down the outside of the legs were the panels slot in and around top and bottom endcaps. Probably overkill but better to be sure.
Now I just have to figure out why my Pioneer isn't outputting the sub signal.

Here is a graph of the speaker at the listening position.

Re: Shiva X Extended Bass Shelf

Now that I have a signal on the sub out I watched Master & Commander again.
Some of the cannon shots had the couch vibrating. Very impressive for a single twelve inch driver.
I will have to match the levels and check I have the phase right and measure the port output to check it is as designed.

Thanks to all who helped, specially MikeP for design confirmation and help.
