Long story short, I have been brainstorming how to get subs in my basement (non-dedicated) HT room due to a lack of space. In order to have proper room treatments in the front of the room, I don't have room for my original plan, which was a pair of opposed firing, sealed MFW-15's. The front of the room would basically be a wall of speakers L,sub,C,sub,R with almost no space between them, and then a single SDX-15 in the rear. Knowing I HAVE to have room treatments up front, all of my subs would end up along the back wall, which really bothered me.

Then comes my wife to the rescue!

She has me help her clean in the garage, and I find, stacked among other boxes of unused speakers, a pair of DIYMA R12's that I forgot about! So, I can build some tiny (1.75ft) subs up front and still have room for sound deadening, then put the 4 MFW-15's and single SDX-15 along the back wall without worry.

Now for this semester to end so I can finally have time to build some enclosures. Ah man, the wood shop will close during break...crap.

Overlooking a few 12's I understand, but if you had unearthed some long-forgotten 21's during an archeological dig in your garage, I'd be worried about you, my friend. eek.gif
Dang, now I gotta clean my garage. I won't find anything nearly as cool as you did, though. cool.gif

Well, we moved and everything that was boxed and not immediately needed got put in the garage. Inevitably you have to go through the mountain of boxes, and surprise.

Audio took a back seat to my beer brewing this past year and that's why I forgot about them. Now I need to get four curve walled enclosures built, a'la PI style...err well I'll try to take as many pics as you.

I'm looking forward to your build, my friend.
How has the brewing experience been so far?

Beer brewing is fantastic! It's a ton of fun and my 6y/o helps cap my bottles. Plus, my wife gets a super clean kitchen because I'm anal about cleanliness when I brew.
I have bottled: Bluemoon clone, Brown ale, spiced tripel (Christmas ale), tripel w/orange, chocolate Russian Imperial Stout, chocolate RIS w/oak & whiskey, hoppy rye wheat ale, oktoberfest, baltic porter, 'nother RIS, and cranberry skeeter pee.
Fermenting: Belgian quad, chocolate milk imperial stout later aged with oak and bourbon.
In the queue: Belgian quad with cherries, oak, and bourbon.

Not a beer I brewed, but since we're talking about it and DIY audio...

I'm going to rebuild them too since they're in boring cubic bare MDF boxes. I want all of my subs and speakers to have curved side walls.

Well, I either didn't use enough rye and too much wheat, or I used too much hops. The way it is now, it's not dry enough for a ryeIPA , or it's too hoppy for a rye wheat ale, which are the two styles it falls between.

I just picked up stuff to make a Belgian quad that I'll age on cherries, dates, medium toasted french oak chips, and whiskey. It's my attempt to mimick Boulevard's bourbon barrel quad.

Doesn't surprise me to see brewers in the diy sections. The gf and I are about to make a russian imprerial stout with raspberry and crushed mint leaves added in the secondary, influenced by dfh brewpub exclusive black and red. Also going to enter an experimental one for a competition... a fruity pebble IPA redface.gif

It's one of the categories, a beer with a breakfast serial added in the mash lol.
