  1. IXL-18.2.2 Driver Volume?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Anyone know the driver volume for the Mach 5 IXL-18.2.2? I sent them a e-mail and they replied with .25 cubic feet. Seems kind of high with the Maelstrom-21 at .20 cubic feet.
  2. Mach 5 IXL-18.2.2 Project

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I have an IXL-18.2.2 on the way from our brothers in the north. This will be my first stab at DIY and I'm stoked. My initial thoughts are to go with the recommended 130l sealed size (Ported Guys are already rolling there eyes) for ease of build and size requirements for my livingroom space...

  5. IXL 4 build ?'s

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am planning an IXL 4 build. The idea is to keep it small, and rather than resigning to a sealed box with big amplification, I think that I may have figured something out. Can you all critique this idea and let me know your thoughts? Thanks in advance! This is all modeled with the driver...
  6. IXL-18.2.2 vs. Maelstrom-X vs. CSS SDX15

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Is the Maelstrom-X really worth the money over the IXL or SDX15? I am getting ready to start construction on my dedicated HT room and trying to figure out the sub situation. I would really like to have 120+ db's at 30hz but I have Magnepan mains and really need a good SQ sub at the same time. I...
