  4. New 87 cuft ib setup

    IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    After reading about Harley haulers ib I decided to try out a pair of the kicker comp 15s. After modeling in winisd it looks ok as far as I can tell I. The 87 cuft cabinet. I just can't figure out if I need to worry about a high pass filter. I will be using a inuke 1000 to power the subs. The...

    Hi all, I/m not new here but i never posted on this forum. I have read a lot about REW and helped me to understand more from DIY than i known before. So, here is my project. It started somewhere in 2008 and at first it was placed as downfire. Later it became a frontfire because it sounded much...

    Well I finally got all my pieces and started building this week. I had a stroke of luck at a local specialty lumber store near me and found 3/4" mdf with fir veneer on one side and cherry veneer on the other. I am using the cherry side for my box. It was just over 4 cu.ft. to start , but with...
  7. 5 cuft build questions

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    I feel like am going in circles. Anyways, I want to attempt my 2nd DIY sub build. My goal is a 5 cuft (141 liter) sealed enclosure using a plate amp for power. I don't have room for external amp nor do I want it out in the open or to listen to fan noise. Questions are: for the best results for...
  8. Maelstrom-X 21" LLT, 20 cuft, 14 hz tune

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Kevin had a brief sale on 21" Mal-X drivers, since the 18" drivers were unavailable. I couldn't resist, so I bought one. I waffled back and forth A LOT between a sonosub and a MDF cabinet. I finally found a good supplier for 28" sonotube and then decided to go the MDF route because at some...

  10. 20" cube, 3.2 CuFt sealed 15" Dayton Titanic MKIII

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    I had planned on building 2 cubes containing 15" Titanic MKIII's, but after completing one I am OK for now & will add another down the line if and when I feel the need for more. Considering my upgrade path from 10" Canton sub to 12" TSC sub, this 15 with Behringer EP2500 is a significant step up...
  11. Dual EVX-180B, 17 cuft, 25hz ported

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    So... I started building this a while back and progress has been real slow - and I've only had a chance to touch it here and there. I've definitely spent more time modeling it and thinking about it - than actually working on it. I bought a pair of Electrovoice EVX-180B drivers a while back...
  12. 19Ov.2 ~5.2 cuft - EP1500

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    So, after much wobbling between a bigger driver sealed build or a ported Shiva build (due to my size constraints), I finally made the decision to go sealed. This started as a replacement for my Cadence CSX-15 sub (for sale locally if anyone is interested :) ). This sub was just good enough to...

    Hey guys, I ordered all my equipment, so i'm getting ready to build the box. What are the differences between slot ports and pvc ports? if both are the same, which one is easier to install? Also, the dimensions of my box are going to be 17wx36hx20.5d. Where should i place the woofer in the...

  16. Looking to find a box plan for a 6ish cuft ported box prefer slot slot load.

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    This is for my TC2000 15" driver. I have built a LLT which i loved but the wife didn't. So in a moment of weakness i switched to a small sealed box and i don't like it nearly as much. I thought I would try a mid sized ported box and hopefully be done. Has anyone had good luck around 6-8 cut...
