    I just thought I'd share a picture of my finished Tumult enclosure. Rather than retype the entire description of it, I'll just link to the page on my website. So without further ado, just click here!

    Now all your missing is the Tumult, or 3 of them to be specific. [​IMG]

    Wow, it looks fantastic, Brian! I built a sub with a similar design, but I'm beginning to see the advantages years of box-building experience can give a guy. [​IMG]

    A few questions: Is that a marble top? How'd you manage to round the corners? What kind of veneer did you use? Do you ever plan on moving it around?

    But again, great job. [​IMG] Is this one for you or for one of your customers?

    Peter,

    You must not have read the description, huh? [​IMG] It's a faux marble finish. I used a template to round the corners. You used to be able to buy them at HD or Lowes. I don't know if they still sell them or not. It's a piece of thick plastic with a different sized radius on all 4 corners. It goes from 1" up to 2.5" I believe. I used cherry veneer. As far as moving it around, not by myself! The enclosure itself was 65 lbs. before adding the legs or top. And the driver will add another 60 lbs. or so.

    This baby is MINE! [​IMG]

    Brian,

    Beautiful work as usual.[​IMG] You will have to provide lots of details of how it sounds when the drivers get in.

    Have fun.

    That is one beautiful sub, absolute furniture quality. It makes my black Formica laminated sub look very boring. How many years have you been doing enclosures ?

    Hopefully when I get my Tumult, I will forget about the bland look of my sub and be overwhelmed with the great sound of it. [​IMG]

    Brian,

    I just took another look at your webpage, then saw the full description of the sub, then rushed back here to see if I could edit my post in time, but you had already commented on my hasty reply. :b Who has the time to read descriptions, anyway?

    Nice job, good thing my girlfriend isn't here to see it, otherwise she would be putting me to work to try and make a copy of yours. I keep on telling her the mdf with black spray paint is stylish enough[​IMG]

    Those faux marble finsihes are really nice and they aren't hard to do once you get the technique down. I did it to my first sonosub and it worked very well. Nice work brian

    only one pic? what a tease!
    good lookin sub MR B. [​IMG]
    the corner radius is a nice touch. to me it seems to give the marble finished top a massive look.


    oh ya, the corner templates can still be bought online, havent seen em at lowes or HD though.

    Brian,

    Now I absolutely must get out to see you and your latest masterpiece. [​IMG]

    Looks like a real labor of love.

    Very nice work Brian.

    What is this corner template thing? What was it used to do on the sub? Looks to me like you used round-over bits? As far as the faux marble finish, is there any place you can recommend (weblink) or a book or whatever on how to do some stuff like that?

    Again, very sexy looking work.


    Chris
