Wow, great work Iglura! That top cap and the legs are beautiful.
Thanks Nick77, sorry but i did not compare the dampingmaterial i used with standard fiberglass. When my new HT is finished i am going to build broadband 4" basstraps in all corners.Those look amazing, you guys have taken the sono to new heights. Im wondering if you have any ability to compare your damping material with standard fiberglass lining? I am going to try to imploy some 4" bass traps in the room to stiffen up the bass from my sono. Very curious about your damping results.
Thanks a lot Filtor 1 and welcome to the Shack:wave:It has taken me a while to get familiar with the depth and width of this forum. I am so glad I found it. This is an amazing build. It fills my head with ideas and questions I never had before.
Thank you lglura for documenting this epic build. You did an amazing job! I appreciate your willingness to share and time involved in doing so.
I am very new to this HT thing, so I hope you don't mind some seemingly silly questions from a newb.
How did you make the top cap? I may have access to a CNC soon although it is located several states away. This would come in handy with making the feet too.
Are you using any EQ?
Man, I feel like I am 10yrs younger today. A kid in a candy store. I can't wait to get a job!
This is the complete port-tube with top plates and damping.
I’m planning to build a Sonotube sub similar to yours, only smaller. The parameters for my build can be found at the end of this post. I'm trying to determine if I need to install the damping material in my build. Some say that the size of your sub makes the damping material necessary but it shouldn’t be a requirement for mine since it's smaller. Why did you install the damping material in your design? How much volume, if any, did you allow for the damping material?
Thanks lglura,Hi John.
I'm not sure if it helps, but I inserted 10 cm with damping material, the volum of this is 19 liter.
I followed the recommendations and put it into the cabinet The subs is awesome with a tight and accurate bass.
