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.



CLAMPZ.



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.


Unfinished product


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.


Fin!


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.

We ended up putting a disc inside, and getting it level vertically, then used a router with a flush cut bit to strip away the excess tube.

We didn't clamp the caps on the bottom. We just weighted them with lots of MDF sheets and whatever else would fit on top lol

The top caps were clamped cross-wise. It's solid enough that I can stand on it and that's good enough for me lol

Right now, I have them crossed over at 80 Hz. Seems to work well with the rest of my setup. These are my mains:

Sweet.


I have a Crown XLS that is collecting dust for now. I had to use an ART Cleanbox to get the most out of it, though.

I still have a Feedback Destroyer Pro (collecting dust, too) that I used for an EQ. Man I need to get this gear running again.

I am currently running a Dayton plate amp (240 watt) to an Image Dynamics IDQv2 in a sealed 1.5ft2 box.

It sounds very smooth and keeps my wife happy. You have just reignited a fire in me that has been out for a long time, though.

Ha! I just ordered a Cleanbox Pro.

If you want to sell your Feedback destroyer, I'm in the market.

Oh, duh. Trying to control a 5-6' piece of tubing steady while rolling would be damn near impossible.

My own trial and error probably would have had me running a string around the tube and marking it. Break out the jigsaw and pray.

It will pull a LOT more juice out of your amps. It's basically a line-driver for pro equipment.

The Sub-Outs from receivers don't have near enough line voltage to drive a pro amp.


You will love your new clean box.

I will let you know on the FB Destroyer. It is a complicated piece of equipment that takes a LOT of patience to adjust.
