    IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    This has been an epic project that I don’t think I’ve brought up here at the shack. It commenced conceptually back in early 2011 (procrastination at its best). I finally got around to actually building it this month. A lot of other work has been going on at my house, including some basement...

    DIY Speakers
    I guess I am past the point of no return. I wanted to try a Passive B&C theater system as my 1st DIY build I placed an order with AE about 4 months ago and my 6 TD12S showed up just before Christmas just when I was starting to come to my sences and going to order some active Catalyst from...

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    So, I finally decided to build a little something up for the lonely AV15-H drivers I have waiting in their boxes. Here's what I've ended up with. Each enclosure should end up ~165L net. I plan to line the tubes with R13 backed fiberglass. I'm going to use 600W per driver. Testing will be...

  11. An LLT with two AE IB15s?

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Steve et al I need more bass down low and can't squeeze any more out of my 4 x 15" IB without playing it loud or boosting to silly levels at 20Hz with the BFD. Bypassing the BFD gives me back my bass but it's humped high at 40Hz and I lose most of the bottom end. My classical organ music is...
