Ported RL-P 15 Project

I'm getting pretty close to finishing my box for a SS RL-P 15D2. It is a 3.5 cu ft box tuned to 24 Hz. The box is two layers of 19 mm MDF with an outer covering of premium maple 1/2" plywood. All of the edges and the area around the port are solid oak. This wood scheme matches the wood scheme of our movie room. I wanted to build a larger unit, but there are serious WAF concerns and this is the largest box I could get past my wife. The outside dimensions are 24" x 24" x 21.5".

For amplification I'm considering the Crown XTi 2000. It has tons of power, enough to add another subwoofer or go to an IB setup once I'm posted next year and buy a house and it has programmable DSP with EQ and filtering.

I'll put some pictures in subsequent posts.

I have that same router It makes very nice cuts.

If you don't have a BFD for your sub, get one fast!
If you don't have REW, get it now!

It is a great router for the money.

Anyway, I'm applying the polyurethane finish now... hopefully I'll have it finished in a couple of days and I'll post some pictures.

My wife is bugging me to make a dulcimer for her now... I'm a bigger fan of building a cube I think....

Re: Ported RL-P 15 Project

Thanks a lot guys. I think it's pretty solid... maybe a little too solid. I haven't thrown it on a scale, but from having to lift it (with two people) it seems to weigh in the neighbourhood of 100 lbs.
