I just got my D2's today... all I can say is WOOOOOOOOOOOW, these things are HUGE!!!! biggrin.gif

one question. they come with a thick, loose fitting rubber gasket type of thing around the edge of the basket. is that a protective covering for shipping? or is that supposed to be left on the woofer basket when mounting? I was going to flush mount it in a recess that's 18.5 inch diameter but that big thing looks like it's in the way. would I have to take that rubber "gasket" for lack of a better word, off before I flush mount it ???

^^ congrats worm!

if you are going to have gasket tape or something to make a good seal you can do whatever you want with the stocker gasket. if it didn't come with something, a lot of customers would end up with air leaks.

Listen. It's All Good.

ok, I wasn't sure if it was a gasket or just some temporary "protective coating" that was SUPPOSED to come off. I'm using 1/2 inch gasket tape from PE so I'll just take that off so I can flush mount the driver

I'm still shocked on how big these guys are... pictures don't do them justice compared to my old MFW-15's that I put in my THT

lol, that I'm not so shocked about. I have 2 THT's in the house right now and a 24x36x24 inch box is actually more volume than the marty subs.. biggrin.gif...........but wow those drivers are big... the SI 24 must take 2 people to mount properly biggrin.gif

Thanks, LTD 02. As you know I have been torn on sealed vs. ported. I will need to decide soon since I want to start the build as soon as my daughter moves out next week-end. I get the garage back. Vertical Marty?????

So where's the dual-opposed ported 15? tongue.gif

HAHA...big LOL...I was actually modeling something like that earlier!

drivers firing out the sides common T shaped front firing slot port. I thought it was looking pretty cool!

"Vertical Marty?????"

I was working on it, but then got distracted by the dual opposed sealed 18" because the panels were so incredibly simple. that one is really a caveman sub... :-)

Didn't mean to sound like I was pushing you. I have been waffling on sealed vs. ported. I have been admiring the "Marty" sub and knew I don't have the space for that configuration. I can't start the build for a couple of weeks, but the anticipation is killing me. Especially now that the drivers are in the house. I do appreciate your help. You are one of several that help all of us noobies.

no worries. i was thinking about ways to keep the build as simple as possible in a "tall boy" marty. what makes it tricky is trying to minimize the number of precision cuts. just out of curiousity, would a rear vent work or do you need front vented?

this one might be just a hair tricky with handy panels to get the slot just right, but as a first pass, there is something that just reaks cool about it to me.

what do you guys think? of course, this one could be used in either horizontal or vertical configuration. dual 15's, slot ported, approx. 17hz tuning, ~10 cu. ft.


Listen. It's All Good.

tallboy for the 18". I've been farting around with this one since this morning and haven't liked anything until now. this one would simply sacrifice a little bit of enclosure volume (no worries it doesn't impact performance by but a hair) in order to have a slick look and still be a very easy build. essentially the baffle that the driver mounts on would be inset on a panel that is recessed 3-4" just like all the other marty builds, but then we would build back up the front wall above the driver to give it more of a finished appearance.

what do you think?

I am not sure where the driver goes. What are the dimensions? I think that I would like to keep the height at around 44" to match my L&R towers and probably 22" wide to fit on the front wall. I do have placement options on that wall.

It does look imposing!

well, those dimension are doable, but that would be a custom design. all these marty subs use the 24x48" handy panels available at home depot type stores, so minimal cutting is required.

in that picture, the black square on the bottom is the flush mount grill. the driver goes behind that facing forward.

I have the capability of doing custom cuts. I plan to do dados and rabbets for extra strength anyway. I am anal like that. If I am going to do it I try to do it the best I can.

If you make the design from two angles like.marty I will do a sketchup render. Only takes 15 min

quick question....the stock rubber gasket on the SI's... how good are they? I mean would gasket tape bee better or worse? the reason I ask is because the 18.5 cutout they have for flushing mounting (which we already routed out) is the width for the driver WITH that massive double sided rubber gasket... not without. so taking it off and using gasket tape would look really funky leaving all that extra space around the basket open...

and if I DO use the rubber gasket provided I noticed that it sandwiches the basket on both sides. do you screw through BOTH sides of the rubber gasket to lock down the driver or do you left back the upper "lip" of the gasket and have the screw flush to the iron basket to give more pressure on the bottom side. it just seems that the rubber part of the gasket on TOP of the basket wouldn't be enough pressure to force the underside air tight..

From my experience, the gasket bottom part is all that matters.
The top part just acts as a "cover" to let the screws go through and be flush with the frame. It also covers the surround's glue line and makes the driver look clean when mounted.

great deal chaluga! thanks! but let's spend that time on the designs that are most likely to get built. sometimes, many designs get designed, but then never built and no need to waste your time on all of those!

i really should take some time to learn how to use that tool...it seems so powerful.

peel back the gasket when front mounting the driver, so the screws contact the metal, then the gasket is sandwiched between the driver frame and the enclosure wood. same concept but opposite for rear mounting. at least that is how i would do it.

that's fantastic. the easiest way that i know for a design is to find something that you like and modify and/or copy it. there are a crap ton of subs out there as a starting point.

epic conquest kind of fits your general gameplan: http://www.epiksubwoofers.com/portedconquest.html
