    I finished my first DIY sub yesterday. The cabinet is a 54L sealed box design from Adire Audio, Dayton 12" DVC and 150W plate amp from PE. The spikes are custom made from

    I would like to thanks everyone in this forum for helping me through this process, especially Brian Bunge, ThomasW and Dan Wiggins of Adire Audio for answering all my dump questions :)
    DanW, I'm sorry for not using your Shiva driver and Hypex HS200 amp, as I initially had planned, because I ran out of funding. Hopefully, I'll have another opportunity to try out your products on my next project.

    Derrick,
    Glad I could help! The sub looks great! I had to right click on each link and then copy and past in another browser but it worked fine.
    Edit: Well, the pics show up fine now.
    Good Job! (And I didn't even charge you a consulting fee!) [​IMG]

    Jeffrey,

    So far, I'm very happy with the sound. It deliver a nice tight bass that will complement my Norh SM6.9 speaker. However, I need to do some calibration which I have no clue yet.

    What kind of finish is that on the box?

    JeffTood,
    The outside dimension is 18" H x 15.5" W x 14" D. It's the same plan for the 54L sealed Shiva box from www.adireaudio.com
    Dave Poehlman,
    I used Rustoleum glossy black paint for both side panels and Krylon gray paint for the rest of the box. Yes, the spikes are very very sharp :)

    Cam,
    Thanks for the complement. Yes, the spikes add an elegant touch to the sub. It was specially custom made for me by Ron Peters at http://petersmfg.com/products.htm
