You'd want to set the SVS to the 16hz tune, whatever that consists of. Plugging some ports and changing an amp EQ setting I believe.
I've used barbed nuts in MDF directly without issue. On my latest build (ongoing) I'm using Baltic Birch and I'm going to use Hurricane nuts for the first time.I'm thinking of tee-nuts, will gluing them into the mdf be good enough? (I know people suggest a layer of plywood to hold the nuts). Is that a must?
Is the concern some sort of turbulence caused by sharp edges? I can't imagine that there's an audible problem there with a subwoofer. But, what do I know?I was wondering about the mounting method too. I like how secure that looks with the layers of plywood, but is there no no need to round over the inside of the mounting hole for "breathing room"? (I am aware of small mid-range drivers which call for this)? All those sharp corners and edges look like they could add unwelcome air resistance.
yes, you definitely have to measure everything(3x) before figuring out all the proper cuts. The wall thickness of the sonotubes are different as well for the different sizes. My 7.5" sonotube was 7.38" in diameter....the big sonotube was actually 24" inside diameter.Have you verified the diameter of the Sonotube? I have recently used some 8" Sonotubes and they varied by about 1/4". In the store they even put 2 inside of one tube.
I agree....and that's what I went with..Put the seam on the side that's against the wall or in the corner so it can't be seen. :bigsmile:
I've been playing the sub for about an hour or so tonight....all I can say is WOW....this thing shakes the house. I have the inuke 3000 at 60% and the whole house is shaking. I played a few scenes from The Avengers and it sounded great....I still have to setup the audessy and get the svs pb12+ working with it, but I'm really excited so far. I'm estimating that this sub came in around $1100 total, and it looks like it was worth every penny!Any pics of its final resting place?
