  1. FS: 465L 14.5Hz Maelstrom-X Sonosub

    Classifieds - Speakers and Subwoofers
    Please see my build thread for pictures, details. Furniture rearranging has conflicted with sub placement, so I'm putting it for sale. I put much time and effort into this- rest assured, it's well designed and built. I'm contemplating a different build for my home (IB) and if it's gonna...
  2. 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...
  3. Maelstrom-X 18 of Aurasound NS18

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hello, My name is Jasper, I am 17 years old and I am from the Netherlands. I want to start building a couple of speakers for a school project and I have read and asked around a lot already, so I already have the basic knowledge. I found this forum when I was searching for information about the...
  4. 18" Gen2 Maelstrom-x

    Classifieds - Speakers and Subwoofers
    I'm desperately trying to find an 18" gen2 malx, new or used, to complete my build. I bought eight originally, 6 were bad and a 7th damaged by UPS. Kevin has been able to ship me 5 of them as replacements, so that leaves me one short. If anyone has one in good condition, please let me know...
  5. Corner LLT Maelstrom-X

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hi All, The wife has given me a task to do over the summer break and I have agreed to do it if I can add something of my own to the build :) She has asked me to build her a bookshelf in the spare corner we have in the lounge room. My idea is to build a LLT Maelstrom-X corner sub with the...
  6. FS: @@ Exodus Audio Maelstrom-X 18" gen2

    Classifieds - Speakers and Subwoofers
    I have an Exodus Audio Maelstrom-x 18" gen2 subwoofer for sale. It is currently in one of neoDAN's end tables, and hits low, hard, and deep. It has about 2 hours of play time on it. I built it without doing all my research, and is far too big for the amount of traveling I do. I would sell the...
  7. Maelstrom-X Cylinder LLT - 1st Timer

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Oh boy... The closest thing to a subwoofer I've ever even owned is either the lame 8" thing that came with the klipsch pro media or the 10" not-sub woofers on my parent's old sony floorstanding speakers. I wanted a home theater and the first thing I looked at was lame HTIBs... and effectively...
  8. sealed Maelstrom-x design

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi! I'm looking and building a sealed box for my 18" Maelstrom-x II. Looking at the application notes there are lots of options for sizes for this sub. One thing in particular is the 7.9 cub ft. Bessel alignment box. Can someone please explain what that means? I'm not familiar with what a...

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I bought one of these and I would like to have the T/S Parameters if anybody can post them. Single voice coil (2009) 1st generation Maelstrom-X 18". Thanks Mike
  10. Plans for LLT Maelstrom-X

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi All, I have a friend who is contemplating building some rather large subs to meet his design goals of 120dB give or take from 20Hz+ and 110dB at 10Hz. Size does not seem to be a problem for the guy. Just wondering if there is a cookie cutter recipe somewhere for an LLT 18" or 21" LLT...
  11. 2 x Maelstrom-X in a Seaton Submersive style arrangement?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi All, With all the fan fare going on over at the Aus DTV forum regarding the Submersive I was wondering what peoples thoughts were regarding doing it DIY style with a couple Maelstrom's? How would you model them and would you think its worthwhile over a LLT slot ported single Maelstrom sub...
  12. Shallow box for Maelstrom-X 18

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I'm thinking about building a rather wide and tall -- but shallow box for a Maelstrom X. It would be sealed. I was thinking about maybe 12" deep. Probably 8cu ft or so in volume. So it would be 1ft deep x 4 ft tall (or wide) x 2 ft. Is that too shallow? I thought I read a while back about a...
  13. 4.5cf 18" Maelstrom-X II sealed build

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    I recently became an active viewer of this forum and decided to quit lurking. I figured this would be a better place to post than introductions, considering I'm a good ways through my build. I'm sure this will be a good place to discuss what I need to do for measuring, and eq if necessary. I am...

    Bought a new Maelstrom-X from diycable.
  15. Maelstrom-X 21 tapped horn 384 cubic feet 5Hz-35Hz

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Is it possible? I got swallowed up by the new fad a while back, but I am only concerned with 35Hz on down. I know these tapped horns are amazing, but I don't like how they perform better as you get higher in the FR. If I build one large enough to go low enough, this might just be my thing...
  16. Maelstrom-X 18 Dual PR build

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    My Maelstrom 18 build is underway. It's a 9cuft cabinet with downfiring driver and dual passive radiators. Power amp is an ep2500. I have everything to build 2 of these. Got the 1st cabinet partially assembled today.

    Maelstrom-X 18 subwoofer drivers w/warranty Pair of Maelstrom-X 18 drivers. These have never been installed, just checked them out w/low freq sine wave. Kevin Haskins says he'll extend the 1 yr warranty coverage to the next owner; that will be until April 14, 2010. I was asked which...
  18. Imagining a second Maelstrom-X 21"....

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    OK, so I'm done with (though I've not "finished") my M-21 in a sealed box. Let's just say I'm imagining adding a second one to the room to fill it in more. What would be my options if I went with a second driver? Would adding a ported M-18" be a poor mix? Would I *have* to go with a...
  19. The SGR built Maelstrom-X 18" Subs arrive :)

    Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    We have taken delivery of the new subs :) We haven't fired them up yet as we are awaiting delivery of the MT3FSL's to complete the system. Listening to subs with no main speakers would be a little weird, so we await the speakers with much anticipation. Tomorrow we get the HT curtains...
  20. Exodus Audio 21" Maelstrom-X vs REAudio 18" XXX

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    So I'm going to guess the Maelstrom is more efficient, ignoring both driver's efficiency and sensitivity ratings, as it has a much larger cone and seems more efficient in build... light paper cone, light foam surround, not over built... smaller Sd with larger roll surround than needed. trim...
