...or otherwise titled, "Look Mom, No Box". I posted several days ago that I was considering trying an infinite baffle subwoofer design to replace my dual SVS 25-31s. After struggling with design issues, and at the prodding of my wife, of all people, I decided to go forward with a dual-driver, front-firing design. The drivers used are 12" SVS Ultra drivers. In order to overcome some design problems related to isolating the back wave from the front wave (the basis of the infinite baffle principle), I had to begin the project with constructing an interior wall to divide a 15' wide area on the oposite side of the front wall of my living room. There was no architectural concerns as this area is only a large closet anyway. This and other structural modifications were to prove to be the most difficult part of the project. I began making sawdust yesterday morning and as of noon today, after a lenghty "break" to go to work, I have reached the point that the physical construction of the closet and driver installation are acoustically complete. Still some trim work, painting, and other odds and ends to finish up, but I am very pleased to report that damn thing really works. I was pressed for time when I was able to hook up the drivers (having a real job is a bitch, isn't it) and I have yet to even touch the eq, but with a quick level calibration, I was greeted with some surprisingly deep, tight, quick bass without a single SVS tube in sight. I'm looking forward to some serious tweaking and listening over the next few days, but my initial impression is this is one hell of cool way to get serious bass and score huge WAF points. I'll be posting pics of the project in the DIY section this weekend (if anyone is interested) and I'll probably have some more thoughts on the performance of this design that I'll be discussing here as well. Thanks to ThomasW, Rich Kraus, Jack Gilvey, Mike Knapp, and everyone that was quick to offer advice and encouragement. Obi is very pleased with himself right now.
