looks very nice. I'm building bass towers too, but yours will be way nicer. I'm doing 2x 15" in each tower, but the towers can stack on top of each other so I can have 4x 15" drivers in a single location, but I can split them if wanted.

I was on your side and watch.

My first thoughts were to build 2x15 "but I thought I build upwards takes
not more floor space.
Then with six 15 "woofers in the room, I do not consider more
woofers.
It is sufficient, and becomes in the living room

Then it is better if one can place six separate in the room but in a living room does not work there because of all openings furniture, etc.

Sincerely, Roger

Like this. 2x subs on top of each other.

A tough solution to have four pieces at altitude

@kiwijunglist


the concern is the motion of the drivers creating a rocking motion.


if the drivers are heavy and the cabs are light, it could be a problem.


depends on the driver employed. lots of subwoofer towers like that in general though. infinity irs system went six high. ;-)

Listen. It's All Good.

That is easily one of the finest DIY jobs I have ever seen. I'd never guess they weren't done professionally.

You are quite right that you write LTD02.

But the tower weighs about 462 lb of woofers mounted and I use the adjustable feet.
With full rash on the woofers is about 41 lb.-44 lb. moving but I have tried prints
hard high on the tower but it does not move.

So I think I'll be fine

was not referring to your towers, just the 4 unit drawing mentioned above. ;-)

Updating how it will look to have the speaker cable with copper pipes

I was incredibly pleased with the outcome

That is some damn fine copper work, every old fart at the hall would be proud if he could call you his apprentice

Glad you liked the solution manuetdeo to make installation
of the speaker cable through copper pipes.
