Would the Ep4000 be good alternative to the inuke3000dsp It has a high pass filter but I am not sure what else the inukedsp does that the ep does not?

I think I answered my own question. I need a
Separate mini-dsp for the ep4k. Think I will stick with the inukedsp.

Yup that's my plan. My room is to narrow to have them flat so I'm standing two up between my LC and CR.

I think I'm gong to start my build on a single marty when the snow clears up. I'm going to need some more clamps and glue...

If I were to make this 2x2 instead of 2x4 how much output would I be losing?

I will make a new thread with all of the pics and specs and cut sheet /etc when I start the assembly.

Big thanks to home depot for cutting my sheets down to the perfect size lol. The little tykes table saw I am using is only capable of 20" cuts. Lame.




FANTASTIC! ...and very exciting to see so many MARTYSUBS! popping up. I was kind of thinking about some sort of cut plan for the MINI-MARTY! that might make it even easier for the guys at home depot (or wherever) to make the cuts.

something sort of like this:





the slot braces could be then cut from a 1 x piece of pine. I'm thinking this might be a good tradeoff to simplify the cutting process.

by "stop" I mean the saw position for rips or a physical block for crosscuts.

officially, they indicate that they don't make length cuts (rips), but it seems that many of them do. hhmmm...

Listen. It's All Good.

Gotta pay the piper eventually. I would say do a non-flush mount driver and a cheap jig saw from harbor freight. Relative to the cost of the clamps required, it seems like a small amount to pay.

EDIT: Another choice is to recess but make a "removable speaker cover" as indicated below.

I must be guilty because people say I am guilty because they chose to call me guilty because they refuse to see the truth. Much easier to be part of the mob..

Where do you find cheap clamps?  :)  Haha.

 

I ordered up my SI18 HT D4 today... hoping it will be a nice pairing to my inuke3000DSP. 

 

I did the fan mod last night while watching the stupidbowl - it was as easy as I expected.  Tools Needed:  Beer, #1 phillips screwdriver, more beer, crimp tool, and 2 solderless connectors.  It scared me for a second after plugging it in though - it was literally silent and I didnt think the fan was even on until i turned the amp around and saw the fan spinning like crazy.  Excellent mod done to an amp that has never been powered up haha.

 

 

Lastly - Is there any 'good' way to made a removable speaker cover?  I assume rare - earth magnets would due?  Where do you get the fabric?

I've mulled over my simplified bracing plan as well as Bill Fitzmaurice's comments that followed. There is always room for improvement, and I think I have come up with a reasonable balance between ease of construction and overall strength. The missing component that several builders felt strongly about was the lack of cross bracing between opposite panels. I believe this new design will address that issue without a significant increase in cost or complexity. Below is the original proposal (left image) along with two modified bracing schemes.



As you can see (middle image), I've added a pair of cross braces between the two sides and between the slot brace and the top. To facilitate addition of the two vertical cross braces, I extended the stub braces so that they could be joined with a lap joint.

Alternatively, you can leave the stub braces short, and just glue the two vertical braces in place after the top is attached (right image). With this method, I would use construction adhesive, rather than wood glue, for the higher bond strength.

As always, constructive criticism is welcomed.
Mike

NB: This is for the full size Marty, not the mini.

Whether for the full or minimarty if I was recommending bracing for a dude building with not a lot of experience I would use this
9u5any8e.jpg

The reason my vertical pieces are one piece is that they allow the builder to achieve a dead square fit with ease. Also it makes the box crazy strong. I can walk on the top of my martysub and I'm no lightweight . Yes the bracing is pricier and if I were making them for a profit I would do it different . For myself I like to make it bulletproof .

That looks real similar to the bracing in my dual sealed subs. Solid is the word I would use. For the front to back bracing I used one long piece for each and notched them into the side bracing.

A side benefit is 4 of the driver mounting screws hit the front to back bracing.

Since it began snowing yesterday I've been beyond bored and I had the day off today. I thought what the hell, ill start this crazy marty build. Luckily I've spent no money yet since material, including glue and screws are free this time around tongue.gif But I was lazy and I didn't want to go to lowes so when I discovered frozen hard wood glue, I utilized some F26 subfloor adhesive which sets faster anyhow. Its pretty easy as long as you dont screw up like I did, screwing too close to the edge and cracking the mdf. Hopefully the f26 I shoved in it and the clamps will help it heal by tomorrow.. I really dont feel like ripping all that down again cool.gif

Here are some pics for the photoholics.

The reason I use my brad nailer is I don't have to use clamps. With my bostich I can adjust the depth of the nail so it sits flush with the surface. Don't even have to fill the hole.

I have one and used it for the port shelf, if thats what you call it, and the 2 braces. But on the sides it just wasnt sucking up flush so I used some serious 3 inch star bit screws I used at work. Perhaps my sheet of mdf had a slight bow to it, I'm not sure. Perhaps I just suck at building. I'm planning to caulk in every seem on the inside before I'm done to be sure its sealed.

I was looking back and I didnt see what amp your using to drive your marty? wink.gif

I always have a couple of spots that need a quick clamp and then a nail to get tight.

I use inuke3000 dsp. The si18 gets 1100 watts and my uxl will get 2k watts . Wish inuke was black .

Bracing doesn't affect the sound does it? It's primarily used to keep the box together and from flexing? So really any type or design I choose should work? As long as I don't put so much to lower the volume of air?

Depending on the amount, any amount will have it’s effect in displacement. .25cf is displacement as .75cf is displacement. Depending on the size of your enclosure the amount will have more or less of a % of displacement or effect regarding your tune. That’s why we build our enclosures larger factoring in the displacement for bracing, driver and vent.

I so, I want as little bracing as possible while maintaining the strongest possible design. I was planning on use MDF cleat material for the bracing, any other suggestions?
