sdx15

  1. Sdx15 (sealed) vs. trio12 w/pr15?

    Creative Sound Solutions
    I'm trying to decide between building either of these two subs. I have a very open house and size is somewhat important to me too. I mostly watch tv/movies and any other time i've got my records playing. Would the sdx15 be never used to the potential it has unless I crank it waay up? Also...
  2. Comparison between the sdx15 sealed or the css trio 12?

    Creative Sound Solutions
    I was speaking to The gentleman at CSS and he said to post this up here. I was wondering how the sdx15 in a sealed 3.5 cu. ft enclosure compares to the trio 12 kit for HT only. I have a larger room with vaulted ceiling. The trio is powered with the modified bash 500 and the sdx15 would be...
  3. Sdx15 sonotube design

    Creative Sound Solutions
    I bought an CSS SDX-15 a while back. I built a ported rectangular prism shaped box and was unhappy with it. I got rid of that and am now looking to build a Sonotube design with the help of a friend. The issue I am having when looking at other threads is that they are all tuning at like 15hz...
  4. Finally finished my SDX15 Build

    Creative Sound Solutions
    I finally finished my 385L, 14.9 HZ SDX15 Sonosub. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures of the build process. I will say everything went pretty smoothly, except trying to get the 1/4" screws through the driver holes (stripped quite a few screws). I never did get them to sit all the way...
  5. SDX15 Sonosub Build

    Creative Sound Solutions
    Ok, I have finally started my SDX-15 Sonosub. I am using 24" Sonotube @ about 385L tuned to 15hz. The ports are 8.15 inch sonotube (actually quik-tube). I have already made my first mistake, I glued the ends together before cutting out the driver and port holes. I am hoping that my router...
  6. sdx15 sealed or the css trio 12 set up?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    what would be the difference between the two set ups? The css sdx15 in the recommended sealed air space or the trio/quartet package http://www.creativesound.ca/details.php?model=QUARTET12(TRIO12)B the sdx has significantly more power but just curious with the 2 pr's in the trio package?

  8. New SDX15 Build - slotport

    Creative Sound Solutions
    Ok, I am ready to begin my first DIY sub. SDX15 and SA1000 are enroute from CSS. I have looked around at other builds, and I think something along the lines of the easy button from neodan, or the tempest x slotport end table are what I would like to accomplish. I would like to keep the box...
  9. Just recieved a new SDX15 for christmas!

    Creative Sound Solutions
    This is my first post but I have been reading the forums here for a month or more. I have always been a DIY type and have been a closet audiophile since I was in Junior High! I just moved into a nice townhouse with a home theater room in the bottom floor it is about 15x19. It has a full 5...
  10. My SDX15 build and measurements

    Creative Sound Solutions
    My Sonotube build and measurements I recently decided to upgrade my subwoofer and, because of the complete lack of measurement data for the popular drivers, I thought it might be useful to post some of the measurements I'll be taking along the way. I was looking for a 15" driver and selected...
  11. AV15H/X vs Tempest X2 vs SDX15 vs FI Q15

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hi, I'm looking to build a ported 15" subwoofer built into an endtable. A reasonable size end table will get me about 6 cubic feet of internal volume before vent, driver, and brace volume. I'd like it tuned around 20hz, the lower the better, i think. I will be using it for 70% home theater...
  12. 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...
  13. SDX15 or Tempest-X2 tests?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I've been searching the 'net looking for actual tests of these drivers. Ilkka has tested an early version of the SDX15 but not the current versions. Beyond that I can't find any tests anywhere for either driver. I'm looking for real world distortion, power compression, frequency response...
  14. Max power for SDX15

    Creative Sound Solutions
    If the excursion for the driver and the passive radiators all stay within limits could I bridge a single SDX15 off of an EP2500? Right now I am running 2 SDXs off of one EP2500 but as always in the quest for more I am wondering if the SDX can handle it. :hsd: Ryan
  15. SDX15 Question

    Creative Sound Solutions
    Putting this in a 400L vented enclosure, is the BASH 500 enough power to drive this sub?
  16. SDX15

    Creative Sound Solutions
    Are the SDX15's today the same as what Ilkka tested? Ilkka's seemed to have a fair bit of distortion.
  17. 2 PR CSS SDX15 System

    Creative Sound Solutions
    I just built a sub with SDX15 with two passive radiators. The box is 10 CF and change. The amp is 250 watts. I just finished putting it together yesterday for testing. So far it sounds good. I just wondered how much do the passive raditors tend to move. I turned it up quite loud. The...

    I'm working on a build of two CSS SDX15 subwoofer boxes for my almost-finished home theater. This is my first time building a speaker box. My previous sub was a Dayton Titanic 10" kit sub with a pre-assembled cabinet. I don't have much woodworking experience so I was a little nervous about...
