Okay, i've been lurking for long enough.

A few months ago i was looking for a replacement sub for my Maw-15. i happened to have wired it to a bridged RMX2450 and ran it to clipping when i left the room... Anyways, after frying a VC i figured why not build a real sub that can take the abuse i was giving the other one.

I met Mark (Mwmkravchenko) while i was working for bell, and we got to talking about what kinda sub would work best for my room. Roughly 23'x20' Basement with concrete walls. No size constraints, and a beefy 15" or 18" woofer to compliment a low tuned box.

We came up with this... (i should say he did.)
14 cubes, tuned to 16 hz lightly stuffed with a CSS SDX 15.

The box would have a down firing subwoofer and a slot port to the far side of the box. As i mentioned above, its got an RMX 2450 bridged to it wired for 4 ohms.

This sub is impressive. Thanks for Mark for the time and effort to build this beast. Amazing quality in the diver. Extension down to 16 hz to 123~ db factoring in room gain of 6 db. Oh! and corner loaded to boot!

The maw is but a toy compared to this beast of a 15. It might have to do with the fact that the maw was in an undersized sealed box, f3 was close 42hz...

Nice post Adam. And even better someone happy with his sub!

Come to think of it I thought those pictures looked a little familiar.

Can't wait to finish the front loaded TRIO12 horn and compare the two head to head. That'l clear the cobwebs from the rafters!
