Re: 2 X 11 cu ft Q18 slot ported subs build

Thanks David, I am looking forward to getting the first one fired up asap as I haven't had a sub for about 4 weeks now. As I am having two of these and the fact they will be the same means I can put the one sub in the both positions they will be in and run the two REW measurements to see how they will measure up and I can also fire them either into the wall or away from the wall to see what will sound best. One good thing is that I already know that the right front corner is almost as good as the left front corner as that was where I had my PB13 originally.

cheers

Re: 2 X 11 cu ft Q18 slot ported subs build

Hi guys,

I managed a get a few more things done today. Glued the egg crate inside except the side bit as I had not screw/glued that at the time. I have done the last side now and have done one lot of filling. Going to go outside in a mo to sand and fill again. I stood it upright this afternoon and it actually looks like a sub now. Sorry a BIG sub. It does look big. I will take some pics in a mo to show you.

I also need to route along some of the edges as a couple of bits stick out. Dodgy cutting by the diy store. And then all done. I will defo be testing it tomorrow so I will post some graphs up then.

I actually can just lift it by myself, well when I say I can lift it, that's about it. I wouldn't be able to carry it from the garage into the house.

cheers

Graham

First impressions there is alot more low end bass than the sealed sub. I mean alot more. I need to set it up properly to see how it fares. Will check back soon.
