Looks like the neighbors will get to enjoy the power of the new subs also. :smile:
I ran into my neighbour when I was out cutting the baffles, and I told him I'd try to keep it down when they get set up. Lol.Looks like the neighbors will get to enjoy the power of the new subs also.
Our house is detached also and I live about 20' from the house next door.I ran into my neighbour when I was out cutting the baffles, and I told him I'd try to keep it down when they get set up. Lol.
I'm actually very curious to see how much sound will escape the basement and the house when all is said and done. Our house is detached, but the neighbour is about 5' away.

I was kind of afraid of that... lol. I know on some quiet nights I can hear bass from someone's house, and I doubt anyone in my 'hood has a really serious setup. Once I get everything all set up and dialed in to my liking, what I'm hoping to do is have my wife run demo scenes, and I'll walk around outside, and if necessary then pop in to each neighbour on either side of my house, just to see what its like. I'm sure being in the basement will help, and I'll have some degree of soundproofing. I don't think I'll be keeping anyone awake at night, but I wouldn't be surprised to have some sound outside the house for sure.Our house is detached also and I live about 20' from the house next door.
My pair of 12" subs, when you crank them up a bit, can be heard to the end of the street. Bass really travels and can resonate inside other spaces pretty easily. You will definitely be cranking out some major 'subwoofage' ... you'll see!
We'll just have to see who the unlucky neighbour is in this case, I guess! :rofl:Deep bass sound waves can travel great distances, but it's not a linear spread of sound..
Your neighbour 5' away may not feel or hear anything, but the guy three doors down the road might have his teeth rattling or his eardrums bouncing!
There's no guarantee of who will be affected by it..
Thanks Tonto, I had a few minutes to myself last night, and I took a look at doing it this way. I think I can make it work, but the baffle is small enough that I can't fit clamps on the corners and get the router around. I do have a solution, I think.Owen, it's easy to get the center. Cut some small spacers to fill the gap created by the original cut. When you clamp it, it will be dead center. Just tap a nail through the cut out into the backer board. Clamp it together before nailing of course! You should be able to shave off the right amount. Don't worry about the spacers, just cut right through them. How much do you need to trim?
Thanks Prof. Next time I get out to HD I'll grab a pack and see. They seem like they'll do a good job. Am I overcomplicating this by not just using coarse thread wood screws or drywall screws with a washer? Probably... but I'm OK with that.The screws look good Owen..providing they will fit in the basket rim..
That's a great idea. I didn't buy that digital micrometer for nothing!Nice work Owen, mic the holes in the woofer before you go to HD, them mic the screws there. Save the trouble of getting them home & having to return them. I do like the way they look though, and I really like the torx feature.
Tapatalk is most likely the culprit. Seems people have a lot of problems with that. On a laptop I can open any page of your thread.For some reason I can't open the 4th page of this thread on my computer no matter what I try, so I can't edit that post to insert the pics. It's been that way for the last couple days on my work computer. I'll try from home tonight. Anyone else having trouble?
