Re: MK Kit DIY sub build

Yeah its all 25mm, although I doubled up the baffle (more or less) by adding 18mm behind that. The cabinet was too big though, as I had to guess a little on dimensions. It worked out 90 litres but I displaced around 30% of it in the end.

Still a bit to do, but money has run out for another month. When I can, I need to fill it, sand it and then paint it. I also need to make a grill and add in some poly fill. I will experiment with it a little, then when I know I am happy with the size, I may remake it and finish that box instead.

I'll update things when I can.

Re: MK Kit DIY sub build

Ive managed to get it sounding as it should now (man Ive missed having a sub ) and the impact this fairly small and low powered design delivers is ridiculous. Its a little wild at times, but not in an uncontrolled way, just a bit of an animal. For anyone wanting a compact design, I cant really say anything wrong about these MK's, really cant.

Given the cab is oversized, and I simply wont ever need a larger cab as the design cant handle it anyway, I have decided that next month I will make a new cab to the correct size. The I can take my time finishing it to a good standard without having to suffer the inconvenience of no sub.

The new cabinet will be 60 litres, but use the same design. This will reduce the overall dimensions by about 30%.

The paint, while a little expensive, did go onto raw MDF very nicely, so getting a nice finish from it should be very realistic. I think that I will eventually settle on basic satin black. It wont be on show in my home and any other colour would be at odd with everything else. I did fancy trying a veneered finish, but I simply just dont have the need. I am however toying with the idea of a black faux leather finish, although I think the unusual cabinet design may make the very impractical. Ultimately, I think basic satin will be the finish.
