  1. My Mach 5 IXL 18.2.2 "easy button" build.

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    So I'm way too excited to create a proper thread but I shall do my best. I'm using the plans from this thread and this thread. Once I figure out how to upload pictures directly to the forum, I will do so. I already have pics of the wood cut out and I will update as I get more pictures. It's...
  2. Line Array Help / Build.

    DIY Speakers
    I've always been a DIY sub woofer guy. I'm wanting to build a couple towers and wanted something kinda easy. So I was thinking about building two Line array towers using 16 Dayton ND90-8 3-1/2" Aluminum Cone Full-Range Driver 8 Ohm in each tower. Total height would be around 56". Another thing I...
  3. Fi based Passive Radiator build.

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Ive played with sealed and ported designs so decided to get stuck into a pr design. The design needs to be kept fairly compact considering we are using an 18" driver, so pr's seem to make sense. The design will use an Fi 18" Q series driver with 500 watts input, and 2 AE 2100 pr's. The cabinet...
  4. My egg shaped 18� sub build.

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    My egg shaped 18” sub build. This build was started this spring and was partially inspired by Corock’s 21” build. If you haven’t had a chance to see his build, you should check it out. You can find it here...
  5. Looking for an Entry Level AVR to start my first Home Theater build.

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    So, I've always dreamed of building a Home Theater (I think I came to the right place). I'm a complete tech junky and love to tinker with just about anything. I'm going to be getting married in 2 weeks and my groomsmen just gave me a $320 gift certificate to NewEgg. My Best Man told me that...
  6. DIY Subwoofer Build. Custom Twin PR 10.

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hi, Here is a new new subwoofer build this weekend with a with a good friend. I designed it on Bass Box Pro over the last couple of weeks and we decided to build it. It contains a Hybrid Audio Technology 10 which is so rare as this is one of only 2 of these 10 inch subwoofer drivers in the...
  7. Ported Tempest build.

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Ok, so I was over at another forum and asking about DIY subs, and the Shiva came up...well I knew I'd just want bigger, so when I finally got around to purchasing I decided to buy the Tempest 15". I know that I want a ported design because I want to hit really low for HT use. I just don't know...
  8. My first DIY build. ***Lots of pictures***

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    This is my first custom subwoofer. I got the idea for my setup from this website: http://www.danmarx.org/audioinnovation/10triple10.html . It seemed like a cool idea and I hadn't seen many triple passive subwoofers so I thought I'd give it a try. Ever since I discovered TC Sounds back in...
  9. CSS SDX15 LLT Build. *Complete*

    Creative Sound Solutions
    Okay, i've been lurking for long enough. A few months ago i was looking for a replacement sub for my Maw-15. i happened to have wired it to a bridged RMX2450 and ran it to clipping when i left the room... Anyways, after frying a VC i figured why not build a real sub that can take the abuse i...
  10. My first DIY build. Mal X in an Easy Button MAX.

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    I posted a while back about building a sonotube, (which I may still do once my theater is done) but for now I wanted to build something a little smaller for my living room. I decided on NEODAN's easy button max design for the time being. I have no previous woodworking skills, but I'm fairly...
  11. 13.8 cubic foot IXL 18.2.2 build.

    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...
  12. Thinking of a LLT build. How does this graph look?
