So I built some subwoofers
Starts with a 12 foot long tube.
Find the center, drill a pilot hole.
Set the router jig, and cut!
It takes a few passes to make a clean cut.
Perfect circle! And my dad's ham legs.
Cut more circles. Glue them together.
Glue's gotta dry overnight.
Trying to get this thing level sucks. Just too big to do easily.
It does look like a giant fleshlight right now :laugh1:
Heeelllllllllllllooooooooooooooooooooo in there!
Added the legs and attached the cap to the bottom.
My dad using his paint sprayer to paint them. WAY faster than painting by hand and much more even coverage. Bad thing is that the sprayer wastes a ton of paint, so it took two gallons to get two full coats on them.
Dropped the 18s in, drilled a couple of holes for the binding posts.
Subs are these:
Now I just have to get them tuned properly. My friend works as a professional sound engineer (does shows for people like Maroon 5, John Mayer and Lady Antebellum) and he's bringing in his professional equipment over Thanksgiving so we can get the whole system really dialed in.
