Ok so just thought I would share this little project here. It's pretty much a music sub and to compliment the high bass in other media if needed. And also I got really bored, haven't done a project in a little while. I want to also thank Elemental Designs for the help with the design and advice that we went back and forth with and they were so gracious as to allow me to use one of their model names for my Sub so thanks Ben Alex and all the rest of the gang for the years of service and support.

So here we go:

Drivers: 4 Elemental Designs EHQS8 (Discontinued)
Amplifier: BASH 300s
Enclosure material 3/4" MDF
Dimensions: 48" H x 16" D x 13.5" W
Tuning: 30Hz approx.
Damping: 4lbs of Poly Fill
Configuration: Sealed

This sub sounds really great and holds it's own down low for music and give you a nice little thump in the chest with the two 13 Kv.2s that he has to play with. Here are a few pics.

After construction:

Dry fitting drivers:


Painting done, drivers and amp installed:

Installed in position:

Change in reconfiguration and what gives me the best result so far:

Hope you liked it and thanks.:T:wave:

Looks like it turned out nice. That must be a sealed alignment? Are you toggling between them and your larger ED sub or what?

You have lots of gear in a little room! :D
Yeah sealed, I just edited the post. Sorry about that.

Right now I use it for music mostly and occasionally for music. When I do put it on with movies it still manages to perform well but I am cautious with is so I cut back the gain. It is running with the Crossover point of 80Hz for with the mains. I don't have an eXover to do better crossing over though. And yeah it is a little room but I got evicted from the bigger man cave to make room for our growing family. lol Hopefully after some expansion my man cave will see it's former glory. ;)

Hope you like the sub though.
