We wait anxiously . . . . some are panting.
This is an example of red oak veneer painted black that I recently finished:
I'd really like to see more photos as well as the appearance Exceeds the WAF. Curious how you managed the exterior joints, etc. and I had always thought this finished result was from a stain: please tell exactly what paint you used (and prep too).
IMHO, what's more important is the foam under the platform. *That* is what's doing the decoupling. The platforms only real purpose is to hold the box and the decoupling foam.On a similar note but different context, I'm making a decoupling platform for my subwoofers, imitating the design of the SubDudes, and for the top platform on which the sub will stand, I'm wondering which of the two would be better.
In this case, I'm guessing that the better of the two depends on their reflective/absorbing properties. I was told not to use plywood (which I already did - told a little too late) and I'm wondering if that's accurate and if so why? Thanks guys
Well, that part I think I've already got figured out but if you'd like to know, I'm putting together these sponges for the bottom two "legs" (two rectangles) and the full second layer. In between each I'll also put in inch thick neoprene, the same dimensions of course. On top will ply 3/4" thick plywood covered by some kind of carpet material. That sound good?IMHO, what's more important is the foam under the platform. *That* is what's doing the decoupling. The platforms only real purpose is to hold the box and the decoupling foam.
So the question is, what are you using for the foam?
Well, one of my subs is downfiring... Plus, some materials might be more susceptible to vibrations so maybe one material could be causing more unnecessary friction over another. I don't know - that's why I'm asking.Yeah? You have a lot of sound coming from the bottom panel of your sub? :rofl2:
Ply is better, but also costs more. If you already have it then use it.:TThanks guys. I already made them though. I used good plywood because that's what I already had. It's good though and seems to work well. Hopefully it's not too much of a difference either way. I can take a picture if you guys want. Thanks again.
