Here is a picture...sorry about the size of the pix as I can't figure out how to re-size it.

Thanks a lot for taking a pic!


But I can't see it. Anybody else having trouble with the picture?

Hi pitviper33,

I guess I haven't tried to upload a pix since the "upgrade" here at AVS...it was so easy before.

I tried the drag & drop method...can you see it?

For those using the Dayton plate amps or other consumer-level amps, what are you using for EQ? I'm tempted to go with the inuke 1000dsp for two subs, but would rather not deal with having to mod the fan, install an auto-on relay, and figure out input voltage and XLR inputs.

The picture worked this time. Thanks! The wine glass is a nice touch.

I'm curious why (or whether) you've decided to put the opening up. I was think I'd put the opening down and put it on some short feet. That should keep me from accidentally (or the cat from purposefully) dropping things in there.

Any chance you have one out in the open where you could get a picture of the side of it? It would help us get a perspective for its dimensions relative to the couch. She's worried about its width and looking like too big of a "slab" stuck to the side of the couch. Either way, thanks again! Obviously I love your idea.

I use PE's BASH 300, for it's 2x headroom with the Anarchy TH 75W excursion-based power rating), and 20Hz infrasonic filter. It's one of the few that's rated according to Ohm's law; twice the power with half the impendence (I built two of them), so I've got 150W with one and 300W with two connected. Seems like a nice fit for someone who doesn't run his amps hard, but wants headroom.
Have fun,
Frank

No problem...I will snap a picture when I get home tonight.

The opening down would be a better idea for an end table and I might do that when I get around to finishing them.

Same here...thankfully my wife was agreeable. I have three of these located around the living room and they sound great with music...

You sure have to watch where to sit your drink with the opening facing up.

A Thanks for the effort!

This is an older thread, I can't believe it though, all of you who have managed to order this cabinet, on this site - Can't do it.

If you have actually ordered this flat-pack and the woofer - can't do once again- you need to give it up, and appreciate the years of work (actually decades) that brought this subwooffer assembly to fruition.

I am not in the middle class, not even able to keep close. I do work very hard for my money and I do very much appreciate the affordable price of the flat-pack * Exodus woofer * and assembly instructions.

Having scarfed up a ''Good Will' woofer that soon gave up it's 250 watt's, leaving me to replace it with a 140 watt hand me down from my 'wife-in-laws' son's 'woofer', it soon became clear–the expediency of profit–will easily overcome the quality of sound–becomes big time!

I had to do something. DTS movie sound tracks were too important.

After it all arrived, it started with two tubes of PL Premium and this thread. Following these instructions and assembly, and my tool-chest serving as sheer weigh for the middle, I realized the sturdiness of 'Baltic Birch" was not to be overcome. After 20hrs, I felt it's strength, knocked a few times, and realized something extraordinary had transpired!

God-bless the audio-files and their pursuit of–not fame and fortune–but some type of an after-life. A type of heaven that says–you deserve more than expediency–more than a catch phrase–much more than a human should deserve, but here you are.

I have survived much–at near 60–this year 2014–I have lived to hear the extremely clear and precise Audiossey tuning of this speaker by my Denon 1610 AVR - giving it up to a used 140 watt sub amp. I heard a very precise assemblage of tones, that was astounding, not muddy, muddled, 'let's fake it crap'.

The first movie was – The guardians of the Galaxy – OMG! It did not hurt, it was not muddy, it was precise and clear.

So thank you, to the creators. For the receivers of this effort, I know it is easy to accept some peoples investment in your life, without understanding, that is common, but give it up to these guys, they deserve it. A big thank you.

Well I decided to go for it. Today I placed the order for 2 drivers and 2 flatpacks from Erich.

I need to buy an amp for them too, but I'm a little confused. I saw mention somewhere of the drivers Erich had made having a different impedance than the originals. Is that right? His site mentions both a 4 Ohm and an 8 Ohm version, but it's not made clear which you're buying. I'm trying to figure it out to make sure I'm buying an appropriate amplifier.

I'm also open to suggestions for an amplifier to power 2 of these with whatever driver Erich is currently shipping. I'm favoring a plate amp for the simplicity of auto-on, HPF, and adjustable LPF. I know the BASH 300 has been mentioned several times. But if that was when the drivers were a different impedance, it might not still be a good match.

Original design was with the 8 ohm woofer. The 4 ohm model was set up as a preorder last year and they are pretty much gone.....until the end of the year.

Sorry, sometimes I need things spelled out for me. The ones I just bought are... 8 Ohm?

I am pretty sure...the product description states 8 Ohms. You had to pre-order the 4 Ohm version...

You run the cabs parallel for a 4 ohm load and pretty much every amp out there likes that and is what the power ratings are based on. So, in this case a BASH 300 amp would be perfect. There are usually some uber cheap 240/250w platre amp variants floating around on Parts Express and other sites. Also, check PE for small case amps with less than 300w.

With two 8 ohm drivers, you can wire them in parallel to present a 4 ohm load to a single Bash plate amp. That's basically perfect for a plate amp. You'll want to make a small external box to mount the amp in.

Yeah, if they're 8 ohm that certainly makes the situation easier than if they were 4 ohm.

I had been eyeing the Dayton SPA250. 252W is still more than 2 of these can take. Advantages over the Bash 300 are the fixed HPF right where I want it at 20Hz and that it's 50$ cheaper. Both these points make it seem like a better choice. Any thoughts on that? Am I overlooking something?

I have a Dayton amp that I am not using...it is either the SPA250 or 240. PM me if you are interested.
