  3. New guy with previous builds

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    When I signed up, one of the moderators suggested posting up some of my builds. Here is my current DIY sub in my theater. I lost the build photos in my old computer so I just have a completed photo. It has a Hypex HS500 plate amp and an Adire Audio Brahma 15. This is the Robot Underground 12...
  4. Builds

    DIY Audio
    Have any of you built a Dolby Atmos speaker yet or seen someone who has? For the front I don't want to put speakers in the ceiling. The KEF R50 is a model I was considering doing since I have 2 similar drivers. But I'm curious your opinions on building bookshelves with the Uni-Q mounted at the...

  6. Newbie builds tube amp, maybe

    Two Channel Audio
    I'm new at this, but I'm old school at heart. Where would one start to build a 50 WPC two channel tube amp? I'd like to keep the cost under $400. BTW, I know very little about this, but I'm one of those people who learn by doing. So at the very least, I'll know what I did wrong.

  8. Dayton 15 inch HO builds

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    ok guys, I have 2 stacked THT subs in my living room right now. I love them to death (believe me these things have done more structural damage to my walls than I realized ;) ), but they are HUGE, meaning it's difficult to place them anywhere without them sticking out like a sore thumb.... NOW...

  11. My ported subwoofer builds.

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    This never really received a name, it uses a pair of 8 ohm Tang Band 5" drivers and a 50 watt amp. Tuned to the mid 30's. This one is waiting on finish (my daughter cannot make up her mind). It is a 6.5" Parts Express buyout, 8" Dayton PR and the Dayton 25 watt plate amp. It is part of her...

  13. RSS390 HO Builds

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    I have just finished 1 sub build that is a coffee table sub. I used a RSS390 HO driver in ~ 6.75 cubic feet and a bash 300 amplifier. I have the sub tuned to 20.5 Hz and I am fairly happy with it. However when the sub is in the middle of the room it sounds almost as if all my seating...

  15. Depth / amount of lining in ported subwoofer builds

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I've seen a wide variety of lining materials used in builds. Compressed fiberglass, various foams, acoustical (rigid) fiberglass. My understanding is that it's meant to keep the backwave from causing the surfaces to resonate. Is that correct? I know that some materials are more effective than...
