    I am new to this speaker building stuff, and need some quick advice. My wife just called and said either she is in labor or is having some bad, rhythmic pains.

    I am going to build a sealed subwoofer, with the PE Titanic MK2 10" and 150w plate amp. Before I order the parts, I am trying to find out the right enclosure dimensions.

    Any input please before my 3rd pops out and plans to build this are ruined!

    Lee - that's cold, dude. Take her to the hospital. The subwoofer will wait.

    take her to the hospital and find a sympathetic doc that will give her a shot to forestall the blessed event. then return home and take your time to do a proper job on your sub. sheesh... women have no sense of perspective.

    All you have to say is that it's for the baby,
    Works everytime for me....especially since we just had one Dec 23. So now I say it's for the baby the other two have enough.
    My wife's sister actually paged her husband and I during a movie because she went into labor, Boy we were mad. So we left the theater.
    And then to top it off she just had gas..
    Also tell her you have to hurry up and build it because your going to play classical music for the baby with it which will make the baby smarter!! Women love that type of stuff....
    Use spekaer building software for the right enclosure dimensions. Look at
    www.speakerbuilding.com
    any other recommendations from the experts.......

    No labor just yet! Whew![​IMG]
    And my wireless network dropped off.
    I will go for the 1 cu ft box. I saw some free program that would give dimensions based on your input. I assume I should avoid a cube? W x H x D?

    With subs the dimensions don't matter much. The wave lengths are too long to form standing waves inside the box (unless you start getting dimensions past 6ft). This is especially true with respect to the dimensions of a 1ft^3 box. As long as the driver fits in it, make it what ever dimensions you like. Cube is fine.

    That's all I needed to hear. Thanks.

    She is not really in labor as of yet. 3 weeks to the due date. After the first two kids, it becomes a lot easier to relax about birth. It is finding personal time that is tricky.

    1 cu ft is just about right. Sounds like it will be a nice addition (sub and child) [​IMG]
