Have you double checked to make sure the woofer fits in that box?

We know for a fact it fits in the 4cu ft box with the cutout for the Dayton 18", and have been advised that it should fit even better in the 4cu ft with the cutout for the SI 18. smile.gif

Since you just completed your UXL build..................I took your advise and ordered SI version of flat pack........................

If it doesn't fit..................I'm blaming you!!!! tongue.gif

Well, I do have picture evidence of it fitting in the 4cu ft box with the Dayton cutout (after I took off the thick rubber gasket that is on the outside). If the SI 18 cutout is just a tiny bit bigger then it should be perfect. smile.gif

According to Sibuna: "the SI is larger. prob really close to 1/2 an inch in diam larger

should fit the UXL close to perfectly"

I agree.........................the diameter of the SI flat pack is 18.5 inches.......................perfect! wink.gif

How deep is the cab?

I've been thinking of doing something similar down the road................problem is, my facade wall is only 25 inches deep minus 3.5 inches for floor plate..................21.5 inches.........

Right now the dimensions are 34" wide, 22" deep and 76" high, with a port tune of 15hz. if you only had a depth of 21.5" you could make them a little wider or higher. You want to try to have a cabinet size of around 22cu/ft.

I'm honestly a little worried that they might be a little too much for my room, which is just over 1800cubic/ft.

Here's my modified martysub designed by ltd02 .
9ybu4uqy.jpg
He added a rear port to lower the tuning to 16hz. I wanted the length of the box down to 40" to fit in my living room. Will come up with a name for this build later.

Two questions ...
The wiring for this sub will be 4 ohm bridged to my inuke3000dsp for 2200 watts
1) will I need the 4 pole speakon cable going to output a ? Do I just use two wires , pos to pos neg to neg ?
2) my emo umc200 has a xlr already being used with my martysub. That leaves a rca input. So I need this
http://www.monoprice.com/mobile/Product/Details/4776?mainCategoryId=115&categoryId=11509&subCategoryId=1150902

Thanks smile.gif

I'm sure 95% of the time two big subs like i will have will do it.. but for those deep down 15-20hz rumbles an extra two won't hurt. Now how long before you say I need another two for the rear tongue.gif

"1) will I need the 4 pole speakon cable going to output a ? Do I just use two wires , pos to pos neg to neg ?"

you'll have to double check, but iirc, for bridged it is + to + and amp set for "bridged mode" (which flips the polarity of one of the channels).

yes. 4 pole speakon.

2) my emo umc200 has a xlr already being used with my martysub.

I think an xlr splitter would work. something like this:http://www.amazon.com/Hosa-YXM121-Female-Dual-Cable/dp/B000068O59

but check to make sure the correct male/female ends are on the one that you get.

Listen. It's All Good.

Is xlr splitter better because it reduces the chance of noise compared to xlr to rca cable ?

XLR cables are better for longer runs........................and sometimes can litigate ground loops.........for example:

i have two different amps for my surrounds.............my black ATI1807 with rca connects gives out a low 60 hz hum...............my Silver Krell S-1507 with XLR connects is dead silent. I've done a switch, but I can't stand silver in my rack so living with ATI and slight hum!!!

In the group buy thread, huskeromaha asked "anyone have photos of the earlier version like mine vs the new? I don't remember what changed but don't think it was noticeable visually or even measurable?"


Does anyone know what he was talking about? pdx and steve- are those really UXL-18's? Mine looks very different?

I believe his had a black carbon fiber cone with black paper dust cap, the ones in the group buy are all black carbon fiber. Much sexier looking IMO biggrin.gif
I believe it would just be a visual thing, no performance difference.

So the only difference is the dust cap being carbon fiber vs paper? Mine is black but looks slightly purple if you look at it at the right angle. It also has a matching carbon fiber dust cap.

I guess I already have the 'newer' version, which is a relief. I'd prefer to have matching subs. smile.gif
