Yes, impressive. That flush work with amp and remote looks good. You have some bright ideas going on in there. Making those accurate partial circle cuts doesn't look easy.
You'll have to break that tempest in and tell us how it turns out.
After a few DIY boxes for my car I've found that unique enclosures arn't exactly a walk in the park. Especially the crazy designs like the one I'm working on.
nice job

Wow - that is an awesome looking sub. Can you describe how you constructed base and endcaps. I am building my sub and I want a base but I don't know the securest way to build it.:b

Great job all around. Very impressive.

How did you mount the controller. Same way you did the amp just smaller? Also, the verticle portions of the amp mount. Did those angle cuts allow it to fit snug to the tube, or was there only a small contact point and you were just liberal with the calking?

wow, that's by far the best flush mount I've ever seen other than the one used by SVS. That had to of taken a while.

What will you be doing to the bare MDF top and bottom plates?

That's one of the slickest amp mounts for a tube I've seen. Very nicely done.... That easily rivals commercial finish or better. Welcome to the Tempest club... :D

Hi All,

Thanks very much for the praise, it was my first effort at DIY speakers.

hopefully it won't be the last, I am thinking of trying a centre channel next while the WAF is still high.

The sub is a tube 500mm

220litres

tuned to 20hz

6" port 500 mm long

Plate Amp (indentical to parts express 250 watt with remote)

How did you mount the controller. Same way you did the amp just smaller? Also, the verticle portions of the amp mount. Did those angle cuts allow it to fit snug to the tube, or was there only a small contact point and you were just liberal with the calking?
I did use a bracket similar to the amp only smaller and the partial cicles are actually 1/4 of a circle mounted to the box frame,it was a very snug fit but also had caulking. I will have to thank Jim Halverson for the pics of his that he sent as I copied them exactly. I did however put a brace in under the bracket so that it was supported by the base.

I hope that this helps any one attempting a DIY Sub.

I will in the future put the construction pics together on a web page.

Regards

Warrick
