Hang in there, buddy! Condo now, maybe a house later. You can always plan for the future!

Re: Mach 5 Audio IXL-18.4 Build

Good point Mike. I've been busy lately and haven't really sat down to enjoy a movie in a long time. I think tonight I'll fire up the sub and the Buttkickers and pop in that Dungeon Siege movie with Jason Statham. I'm not expecting much, but hopefully it will have some good bass content at least and I can content myself for a while longer.

End complaint and minor threadjack.

Re: Mach 5 Audio IXL-18.4 Build

I am extremely impressed with the subwoofers that have been built in this thread. I want to build
(handbrake permitting- thats the wife) a pair of these Mach 5 Audio IXL-18.4's. For my HT.

Your design looks great and I am sure you have put a great deal of work into the design etc: Is there a site or a copy of the design schematics of these speakers so I can build them to your exact specifications??

Any advice would be appreciated.

Regards

ROB

Re: Mach 5 Audio IXL-18.4 Build

Thanks for the compliment. The only plans I made were the cabinet size drawn on a piece of paper. The bracing was figured out as I went along. The cabinet dimensions are 38" wide x 23" deep x 30" tall. I don't remember the bracing sizes or their exact placements, but if you do get the "go ahead" to build, I'll gladly pull a driver to access the inside and get you the required measurements.

Thanks for the offer Mike, it is appreciated!! You have convinced me to make the purchase. I feel like living dangerously, so I will buy them first then tell the good wife second!! When I am in a position to do the enclosures I will get back to you to obtain the required measurements!!

BTW, in a previous post you advised "I downloaded some frequency sweep tests and it's very obvious there are a couple of peaks. I"ll have to get some measurements done to see where the problems are".

Have you acheived this yet, and if so what did you need to do to rectify the apparent problems??

Your advice is appreciated!!


Another convertee to Mach 5 Audio!!

Cheers ROB

Re: Mach 5 Audio IXL-18.4 Build

I never got around to doing measurements even though I bought a BFD, downloaded REW and purchased a proper sound card. Too much going on with a daughter having twins, work, and home life. But I'll get there yet! The peaks are room modes that the BFD will handle, I'm pretty sure of that!

Thanks Mike, please excuse my ignorance, but being relatively new to this caper I do not know what the following means "The peaks are room modes that the BFD will handle" Can you please explain. Sorry to be an annoyance!
