Re: another css 10" build

Nice bracing Rodny, looks like it will be very solid. It does look like pretty tight clearance for the amp though!
There's another 1/2" piece of wood going on the back, right know there is about 1/8" from the heatsink to the port.:bigsmile:

PS, you still need a hole in the front baffle for the port to work properly... ;)
:thud:

You know... if you put a little vent deflector, you'd almost have some active cooling for the amp!

Re: another css 10" build

Look'n good Rodny. Are you going to be able to incorporate the 3/4" plexiglass into this sub? It would be pretty neat to use if for the side to show off the work you did on the port. It would also make a good visual tool to show people how the inside of a sub looked. Add your neon and that would be one funky sub.

Re: another css 10" build

Interesting slot design. Is there a reason you didn't use the bottom/side walls for the port? Or at least the use the bottom to save some box volume.

Also did you take into account the volume of your port when calculating the effective volume?

Edit: looking at your spreadsheet I do see you subtracted ~700 in^3. I come up with at least 732 in^3 for a straight box of 2x6x27.5 but I don't think the difference will matter.

Re: another css 10" build

The Bash amps don't need to be separately sealed from the sub cabinet. Whether you do a slot or round port, just remember the amp requires 3.5 inches of mounting depth.
I will second this. My bash 300 does not leak and I didn't add any extra sealing. This was testing at excursion limits @20Hz. If there was a leak I am pretty sure it would have whistled :).

I was worried about this because not all the connectors had silicon on them so I was particularly attentive to leakyness.

Thanks!

It was easier for me to build the port this way!:bigsmile:

Re: another css 10" build

:yikes: I hope you don't plan on covering up the side of that box without some sort of plexiglass to show off your work. That looks nicer inside than mine does on the outside!:thud: Now excuse me while I go kick my boxes....

Re: another css 10" build

That slot port looks like it was a lot of work. Turned out well though.:T
Its not that bad really!!

Put the sub together because I wanted to hear it:bigsmile:, there is another piece of 1/2" going in the back, the amp will be flush on that piece, this thing its HEAVY!! you can see on the last pic 82lbs:gulp:, I dint think it was going to be that heavy:whew:.
I'm going to play it some more this weekend and do some measurements.
I did a 3/4" round over but I was thinking of using the 1 1/4", what you guys think? do it or live it like that?

So far a very impressive little thing!!!:yes:

Re: another css 10" build

Looks good Rodny!! I think I'd leave the roundover as-is... a wider one might look weird, but then again if you're painting it candy red and doing it as a fun project, it might work still.

Looks like you tried it in the front and in the back? What did you think? Pretty great for a 10-incher, isn't it!?

Yeah right!!

Lets see...........my lunch hour and staying late after work!

I placed the sub on the front and it sounded good but you can tell where the sub was, move it to the back of the room and wow! it made a big difference and you couldn't tell where the sub was, called Kevin and told him to sit down and tell me where the sub was and he said it was the front subs playing, we listened to Sarah McLachlan dvd.
I need to set the gain on sub and move it around the room and see where it will sound better, I did try it downstairs and with music (cd) it was ok , played a movie and it fill the room pretty good, nothing crazy loud but good enough, this is perfect for a small room,my living room is pretty big and is open to other rooms in the house, I'm pretty impress with this thing:bigsmile:, now the fun part begins......paint...sanding.....paint.......sanding........:sweat:,
