Here is a picture of my first and only DIY subwoofer.
original SVS driver and PE250watt plate amp.
Finally I no longer feel my sub is the weak link of my setup. http://home.neo.rr.com/joekelli/sub4.jpg
Hey Ches good to hear things are good. I'll let you know next time we have one of our Austin meets and you could come down for the weekend and meet some of these MDF dust junkies, like Hank. I got the chance to meet Brian Bunge at this weekends meet, he's a real down to earth guy even though he is the heir to the "Bunge Cord Inventors" fortune.
My adire alignment sub is a trapezoid enclosure that was designed by me to have no standing waves.
Too bad the tempest subwoofer frequencies don't produce standing waves. lol
Anyways Frustum Pyramid.
Anyways it has solid maple legs, and maple laminate with maple edge tape on the bottom. Lock mitred, with no viewable screws or nails, countersunk screw brace.
I made twins, and tried to sell one COMPLETED for $150 but couldn't find a buyer so I went ahead and am going dual tempests.
I'm a newbie. This is my first post on hometheaterforum. I just found this place a few weeks ago from a link on harmonicdiscord.
I just got through with my first attempt at enclosure building, the GR AV-1s. It was also my first attempt at veneering. I can't wait to hear how they sound! http://www.meettheferrells.com/ron-and/speakers/
May as well add my sonosub to the mix. Its not complete yet cos I don't have the cloth sock to cover the ugly paint job on my tube, but what matters is it sup and running, it sounds good and I am happy with my first DIY project.
Brian, I just returned from a business trip. THANKS for the very nice compliment. Some day I'll get good pictures posted. I need to ditch Geocities. Right after my first post on this thread I received an e-mail from Geocities stating the my site was turned off because there were TOO MANY VIEWS the last few days!!! So, they wanted to sell me more space. When I get time, I'll go to a good host with plenty of space and learn how to post hi-res photos like Brian and project photo fanatic Patrick Sun.
Ches, it looks like it's up again: http://www.geocities.com/hankbond1/index.html
