Re: SI 24HS D2 quad

So tell us how things are going? Any new cracks in walls?

Not yet unfortunately I'm still waiting on the enclosures. One is built but I'm waiting until they're all complete before I pick up and place them. Just the enclosures alone are 120lbs each as well as 2+ hours roundtrip drive for me. I'll pick up all the enclosures in one trip. Then I'll stain them and mount the 80lbs subwoofers

Things are progressing but measuring multiple & cutting once. I'll update first post with progression pics of the neccessary big footprint mammoths lol

Re: SI 24HS D2 QUAD

I made the trek this weekend and picked up the 2 built enclosures to make more shop space for the last 2. They're intimidating and without the drivers weigh 120-140lbs each! They're not too big for the open space they'll occupy but WOW !!! Being a native Texan, going BIG is only way to go but goodness "I'll never push these to show the limit of their capability", I tell my wife . I'll wait to get the other 2 enclosures before I prep any for placement.

Re: SI 24HS D2 quad

You'll have to take pictures of the enclosures and show us what they look like.

Re: SI 24HS D2 quad

Almost finished with all the enclosures...2 down 2 to go... I really like the natural finish of baltic birch. I'd keep them unstained but WAF means matching her end table I'll wait until all 4 are complete to stain all from same batch.

What is your plan for bracing?

Actually I don't plan on bracing. That's why I went so thick on the walls and used kreg screws. I thought about adding some type of bracing but after confering, I shouldn't have any issues without it.

Re: SI 24HS D2 quad

So what are you going to use for stuffing and how much? Are you gonna stick to the 1lb per cubic foot rule, or do you have a different plan?

After looking at your boxes, I've decided to go with the 30x30 front as well, mine will be only 24" deep though.

Looks great!

Re: SI 24HS D2 quad

You can always add dowels for bracing. Even when using very thick panels at least every 8" in any spot should be braced. And with a 24" woofer that will be moving a LOT of air. SO I would expect panel flex if using 2" panels. Any vibration or flex is a loss of spl. So you may have a dancing box when playing.
