DIY Sealed 15" Soundsplinter RL-P15 Subwoofer (Lots of Pics!)

I was test fitting my Mickey Mouse Brace (per my 9 year old) and snapped a teaser pic for you guys.

Hey! it looks just like Mickey! Looks the beginning of a sturdy box Jim. This is exciting.

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

Re: DIY Sealed 15" Soundsplinter RL-P15 Subwoofer

It's definitely going to be over-built (1.5" on every panel). It's not needed, but I'd hate to be in the middle of WOW and hear a buzzing panel. I want it to be as heavy as possible too since the driver will be located a little higher that normal in the enclosure.

I just made the cutout on the 1st front panel. I'm done for the night. I need to buy my fill and a few other things tomorrow. I'll do all of the internal stuff tomorrow night and button it up. Well, that's the plan anyway.

Oh, I forgot to mention, I didn't make any of the panels using the table saw in the pic. I'll post a few pics of how I did it later.

Off to the shower to get rid of all of this MDF ...

Uh.... can you run over to my house and help me with my manifold for my 4 RL-p15's...??? I think I'm gonna end up having to take it up in the attic in pieces and then glue and screw it together. Too hot up there for one person and you have been selected to help ... I'll fan while you put it together. Deal?

Ouch. That's definitely a night job. The cool thing about IB is, it doesn't have to be pretty. Then again, we're all overachievers here. We tend to over do absolutely everything.

My quickie sealed box is a temp fix for LFE until I can talk myself into ordering 3 more for IB. I can't wait.

Jim, why start a thread about your temp fix for LFE j/k

How big is your listening room again?

It's roughly 25'x16'x10' and open to a dining area, entryway, etc.

Intial fill ...




Core box is done. Too bad it was eaten by the giant Texas Silver Legged Spider.

All that work today and you only mention my clamps. lol

Thanks. They are Rockler pipe clamps with their optional zinc coated pipes. I also just bought their new levers that make it easier to release the clamps. Of course, I haven't installed them yet.

As a general rule I don't like Rockler, but I seem to have quite a bit of their products.
