I couldn't find much on them either, but the specs are real good, has features built-in that others don't have [high and low filters] and I got it for $330 shipped. I have a Yamaha 6.1 receiver. so it should be a good match.I was really close to buying one a while back but couldn't find much info on them from DIYers.
You actually can buy blueprints and even pre-built cabinets, but there are plenty tried and proven designs with drawings and cut sheets for free - especially for some of the more popular drivers like the Soundsplinters. The new Shiva and Tempest is out now and there were lots of designs for the old ones. I suspect these will become very popular over the coming months.I have never attempted a DYI speaker or sub. Do they sell blue prints for those?
Doesn't time just take a big wet byte out of your @SS.... /QUOTE]
Yeah buddy!...when you have wife, kids, job, two cars and a mortgage, there is never enough time in a day...:unbelievable: I took today off just so I could cleanup some of my mess around here and do the final hand sand and spot prime. The sanding alone took several hours. I hope to have these puppies primed and painted by this time tomorrow.
No problem Warp. I used a 45 degree chamfer bit. For the top, I just let the router base bump against the top. Near the bottom, I stopped the chamfer 2" above the bottom of the front baffle. This gives the illusion of slimmer in the middle and the legs buttressed. I lightly hand sanded the hard edge left above and below the chamfer to something close to a 1/8 roundover. The only rounover bit I used was a 1/4 on the oak only.Could I trouble you, in asking how you did that...?
The tops are getting some American Olean 6x6 Barella Mocha Porcelain Floor Tiles. I used these same tiles on my AV equipment built-in I did just prior to starting on the subs. The tiles will set just below the top of the oak trim with thinset...grout will be a natural Grey. I wanted to use a single piece of polished 18x18 Travertine, but the wife says make them match. Not a great pic, but this is what they look like.What are you doing with the top....?
Hey Scub - check out this thread running in the DIY Subwoofer section:Thats really cool. Where would I find that information?
Thanks! I don't know exactly, but with the amp, speaks and everything else, I would guess between 575 and 600. I have 330 into the amp and 150 into the speaks. The tile work is done and I should have some new pics later today or tomorrow.About how much money do have into this? About how many hours?
