he had a completely blank slate on dec 1st and finished it in little over a month

In AVS DIY forum time that is RIDICULOUSLY fast!!! congrats on that alone...

The implementation is just really cool overall though, knock people off their feet with bass then pull away the chair and show 4 12" just pounding away neatly tucked in the corner

in theory, add about 12db per octave from about 25hz down for a medium sized room for pressure vessel gain.

Thanks man

I have no idea what you just said as far as the walls go honestly lol all I know is that at full gain it sounds horrible because everything in the house thats not bolted down and insulated is shaking.

Nice work, Ricci and LTD, et al.

One word of advice for the next build... PATIENCE. Spend the time necessary to each step and the end results is magnitudes more satisfying. It took me years to learn that simple lesson.

Bosso

Yeah I hope you're happy to see your sketch come to reality. I have a big problem with patience, I know I could have finished it much better but I figured its behind a chair and youll only ever see the top so I wasnt too worried. It looks great and like I said previously the only thing I could have done to improve was to put a verticle brace like a 2" dowel up the center of the enclosure.

Really? I thought you guys would post that it took me long enough lol. Its great because you really have no idea whats behind you when you sit down and if I wanted to I could literally stop their heart with bass if I wanted to haha.

Thanks again!

So im trying to figure out what I should do next. You guys tell me what would be most cost effective and best bang for your buck upgrade, not talking about subs anymore though I am still planning on EQing the subs..

-New Denon preamp - could I eq subs with this?
-Custom build new towers with parts express parts? which speakers they carry are best? If im building these I want the best possible for the $ and my time
-New amp for current towers? NS-555 Yamaha

thanks in advance

Calibrated mic, mic preamp, and (free) measurement SW. Possibly room treatment after that.

and a good soundcard if you don't have one.

i'm not sure the measurement setup is the next best step for you though.

Listen. It's All Good.
