Mike P. had created a Subwoofer Database thread so that it will easier to locate threads here at Home Theater Shack that reference the various DIY Subwoofer build projects.

This thread here will be for submitting additions to that thread and will also serve as the discussion thread for the database thread. This will keep the database thread clean and organized.

If you would like to submit a suggestion, include the following:

  • Driver brand, model number and size.
  • Enclosure volume in liters and cubic feet.
  • Tuning frequency.
  • Link to your build thread (at Home Theater Shack only).


Your suggestions will be reviewed and added to the database as soon as possible.

Thanks!

Re: Subwoofer Database Addition Suggestions and Discussion Thread

Is "Kappa 12VQ" the proper name for the sub?
I think it would be "Infinity Kappa Perfect 12 VQ." I could also change the title to reflect the fact that I used the MidQ insert as two completely different subs could be made using low or high Q modes.

Re: Subwoofer Database Addition Suggestions and Discussion Thread

As far as I can tell I've completed the database. If I missed anyone please post a link here and it will be added. Thanks.
Looks good. Now someone should make a speaker database <puts finger on nose and says "not it">!

Re: Subwoofer Database Addition Suggestions and Discussion Thread

Is this for finished projects only?
If so, how about an 'ongoing builds' thread at least? The finished projects often have information that is obsolete. Ongoing projects tend to be 'fresher'...

Re: Subwoofer Database Addition Suggestions and Discussion Thread

Builds that are not yet complete, as in 'ongoing'. They are often 'fresher', any prices, suppliers and solutions are often of a newer date than completed builds in which information can be years old.

One example is my build

Re: Subwoofer Database Addition Suggestions and Discussion Thread

Ok, I see what you mean. The intention of the database is to give people an idea as to what is possible with a specific sub as to box size, tuning etc. The SoundSplinter RL-p18, for example, has builds ranging from 7.7 cu. ft. to 26.8 cu. ft. Anyone who wants to use a RL-p18 can look at the database and see what others have done. As for "ongoing builds", if a thread has a "design" selected and pics of the build, it will be added to the database.
