@PNC Thanks for the input but if you typed that in chinese it would have had the same impact on me
I'm trying for a simple approach, this is my first project
@nograveconcern Why do you think the sealed is the wrong enclosure here? I'll check out the THT LP you mentioned for a read. I already know i'll end up thinking its cool, pondering it, and then once again doing nothing for a week because i can't make up my friggen mind.
These are my thoughts for now, given that they are going behind a screenwall with around 19" depth and trying to keep it simple:
Enclosure size of 17D x 23.5H x 23.5W by my calculations using 3/4" MDF that gives me an internal volume of 4.34 cu ft. Subtract out the sub volume and bracing and should come in around 4?? I'm not sure on that but if someone knows please chime in.
I did have a couple of questions. I'm going to recess the driver and double up on the front baffle for a total of 1.5". So can I just cut two separate holes for the woofer, one slightly bigger that the other to recess the driver and then glue them together? Is that what peaple do? Heres the mounting info for the Dayton 18 HO:
Overall Outside Diameter
Baffle Cutout Diameter
# Mounting Holes
So would I then cut one hole to about 18.2", cut the other hole in the second baffle board to 16.69" and glue them on top of each other?
Then i would assume i just put the gasket in, and screw her down??
Like I said, first time noob here, just working out some of the details.
Concerning the Amp...any thoughts on the nu3000dsp vs the ep4000? I've mentioned i have an Onkyo5009 with XT32. Will the dsp in the NU3000 help to level two 18's out better than the Onkyo? If theres no gain here, i'd probably just go with the EP4000 and call it a day. I'm just wondering if it will help me get a flatter response or improved SQ down to 18hz
Please feel free to point out anything i've miscaclulated or anything i should do differently. once again, my room is about 2800 cu ft and is open ended.
