    I have two Mach 5 Audio IXL 18.2.2. One was used for 6 months the other for 3 months. Don't want to ship these as I have no boxes. Would meet in the Rochester-Buffalo-Syracuse-Souther Tier region for pick up. Would like $175 for each one. Would trade for/towards a Anti Mode.

  7. IXL 18.2.2 speaker terminals confusion

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Well I got my IXL 18.2.2 but I'm unsure of the speaker terminals. It looks like it would unscrew but it doesn't I look in and I see something like a spring coil (just one bit though). Any ideas on this?

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    I have two IXL 18.2.2's that have been sitting for a good year now along with two PR18-2100's (AE). I am thinking of going with a box around 22x22x60. I don't think I will go the mdf route this time due to the weight, may use birch instead. This will sit below my plasma and also will act as a...

  13. Mach5 IXL 18.2.2

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I'm looking for couple of relatively inexpensive 18" subwoofers for sealed enclosure project. The Mach5 IXL 18.2.2 seemed to fit the bill. I tried modeling it for a SQ, as close to Qtc .707 as possible - the model showed that it'll work if the enclosure is 2.2ft^3 (62.8L), that doesn't seem...

  15. Mach 5 IXL 18.2.2 Box opinions

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am probably going to get the IXL 18.2.2 when they are back in stock... But until then, I wanted to see what you guys thought about my planned box dimmensions. It will be 7 cu.ft tuned to 17.99hz so the port lengths can be a quarter multilple like .75 or .25. The box needs to be the same depth...

    Note: Final enclosure changed to 358L at 15Hz - Images below have been updated to reflect changes, except the Sketchup images. Same overall design. The purpose/goal for this build is 1) the need for some strong bass in a subwoofer deprived HT setup and 2) a huge learning experience...

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Here are some build pics from the build I did. I'll have to update them because I've since painted the inside of the ports red, and cleaned them up to not look dusty lol. Each box with driver is 220lbs and I can max out my spl meter with over 126db + at seating pos. Everyone that has heard them...
  19. IXL 18.2.2 - Project Build

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Time to build a sub. I know a fair bit about them and have done a few in the past, but I can't seem to get winisd pro working for me.
