Re: Sealed TC Sounds LMS Ultra 5400 18" NOOB STYLE!!

Only thing i forgot to mention yesterday, is that my crown ce4000 came in. kinda bugs me that the fan is a little loud. was expecting something whisper quiet. Its not overly annoying loud when its idling. but.... going to have to brainstorm on this way to try and find a way to deaden the noise

I was just thinking

You mentioned you are a steel worker, do you also work with aluminum? You could always make an enclosure out of metal. I know one of the most expensive subs in the world, the Krell, is made out of aluminum.

Well, i'm trying. So far its going good. I screwed up one of my corners. It fell and knocked a chip out of it. I have no idea how i'm going to fix it. I am going to post a picture. do you think wood filler could fix that?

There is a wood epoxy that I have used a couple of times that works great. I just went to the garage and it's called Quickwood
I picked up mine at the Home Depot and it really works good and dries fast.

Re: Sealed TC Sounds LMS Ultra 5400 18" NOOB STYLE!!

Went this morning and got a new piece of wood and recut the front panel because the first one was to big. This time i made sure it was right on the dot. Worked out great. I posted a picture (one with router bit) of the one i cut yesterday on top of the one i cut today, so you can see the gap difference i was talking about. So now as you can see, all of my pieces are cut and ready to try my hand at glueing

Figured i would start out with the front panels. Wasn't to sure how much glue, so i put alot on....Yep, it made a mess. Glad i had all of the extra clamps. Seemed so easy to align the boards with no glue, then with the glue on the thing was like a slip and slide. wasn't able to get it perfect, but its pretty close
