do you have the link to the site you got the spikes from? need to order the little bit for my sub soon and like the look of the spikes you used.

how much would you charge for a box build like that all in shipped? or just a baffle? just been pricing up tools costs almost as much as my sub!!
im from the UK as well, down south in portsmouth.
ah cool. Well you can find the spikes easy enough on e-bay, and they cost about the same as anywhere else, but they are easy to find on the bay.

Ive actually been building cabs for people and have no problem doing that. If you dont have the tools then they will likely cost at least as much as the cab anyway, probably more. Raw materials arent that expensive, but depending on the finish you want, the time it takes to build it differs.

What do you have in mind?

im not sure yet, have to discuss a couple of ideas with SWMBO.

1. same sort of shape as Mr Perkins Fi subs but not ported and driver mounted towards the top. 100L stffed to give 120(ish)L

or

2. something based on the Sonus Faber Elipsa, but i need to get a windoze machine with winISD to see what sort of height and width i could get away with first.

Well a 100 litre cab for the 15" drivers comes in a roughly a 550 cube. You really cant go any smaller than 450 with a 15" driver on the width of the face the driver is on, so bear that in mind. A 550 cube, while not small, isnt huge either, and I have a Google sketchup of that model I can show you if you wish.

Doing an elliptical shape will be much harder, but I agree would look brilliant. To form that shape, I personal would build a solid box, then from the elliptical shape over the box. That way you will get your solid construction, with an easy to calculate internal volume, and final elliptical shape.

If you need help with any of the details, I'm more than happy to do what I can.

thats cool governor,

what i was thinking is nocking up something cheap and easy to start with, to get warmed up. just a box with 2 brace to get her running. Then I can take my time with the snazzier more complex design.

I'll get my post up in a couple of days when i get my amp. then go from there. im looking forward to getting my woodwork stills back up to scratch.
