From Cool, to painfully Un-cool

I'm looking at DIY speaker builds while I work on fixing this computer on my bench...and I run into this totally cool subwoofer:

Check post #646 The Rubicks one.

(I'd post photos, but you really have to see this second one)

I'm impressed by some of the work I see, till I get to the Emerald Theater

Starting at Post # 656, same link as above.

My head hurts I'm laughing so much.

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

I'm pretty sure having 2 different cone sizes right next to each other will cause cancellation due to frequency differences, but the setup looks tight

Take it to the STREETS!

eric,

are you looking to build a sub or a set of speakers?

although, I have never got around to building a set. Jon Marsh's designs over at HTguide look very well constructed. He also uses prefabbed boxes from Parts express which makes the finished product look very nice. They are not the cheapest DIY builds, but not terribly expensive either. The Modula MT looks like a great speaker design, and it gets amazing reviews.

I'm looking to ditch my folded horn sub for a single LLT (Large and Low Tuned) 18" sub tuned to about 15Hz and pushed with a 1000watt Pro amp.

Right now the folded horn shakes the room pretty well (floor flexes a little bit with deep bass), but it doesn't go down to 15Hz and I want to really pressurize the room so you feel the bass in your chest.

If this flake in Oswego I'm trying to buy a (used) receiver from pulls through, I might have enough left over to buy the 18" speaker, then I just need to do some extra computer side-work to afford the MDF or Birtch Ply to build this huge sub box.

nice - are you going to try to paint it gloss black, or cover it in something?
