1 of 2 almost finished. Front baffle done, edges rounded, screws filled. A bit more sanding and It'll be ready for stain. I think I may have this one done by tomorrow or monday. I am focused on finishing one right now because the Inuke will be delivered on Tuesday. I want to be able to at least have one to hook up when it arrives. The second one still needs the front baffle, screw holes filled, edges routered and sanding then the stain. I think I can finish that one next weekend.

Looks good! Is it just an illusion of the picture or is the top right side port higher then the left side?

yeah the ports are little uneven due to the baffle cutout being a little uneven then the router not having a straight edge to guide it. Its not very noticeable in person though.

8 coats?

and i thought i was overdooing it with 5
those look real nice.

a warning for that anti slide stuff someone posted a pic of above, there is a chance that it will stick itself to your speaker/sub, has happened to me. just make sure you let the poly cure for a stupid amnt of time before you place them on it

Since you say the driver is off a little, the two ought to balance each other out then and you truly have a custom rig there. How mu$$ you want for it? smile.gif

first one done and I am exhausted. Got a lot done today. Second one is ready for sanding and routing then stain and poly.
One sounds great. Can't wait to see how much of a difference two makes smile.gif Ran MCACC and fiddled with the dsp on the Inuke a bit. Gotta read up on how to adjust with the USB on the computer. Can't figure out how to access it once connected. Can anyone give me a hint? I'm running windows 8 on the laptop.

Here's a pic smile.gif

Second sub completed and functional. The difference with two subs vs one is huge. Much better, deeper, louder clear bass.
I learned a lot from the first build and the second came out a bit better with a richer color stain. Used a brush on the first and a rag to apply stain on the second. The rag is much better. I my have to refinish the first sub to make them match.

The sound is incredible but since I still have the old 20-39 pc plus I hoked it up behind the screen for good measure. It is convenient while watching TV because it has auto on and sometimes you just don't need 2 18's pumping out sound from Geico commercials. The real truth is I couldnt resist having all three hooked up at once LOL.
On the the pics....

Really nice and symmetrical now smile.gif

Have you played with REW and the dsp software yet?

yes it is symmetrical now smile.gif

I have tuned them to my liking with the DSP. The parametric EQ is quite neat and useful.
I used some EQ setting screen shots I found here on the forum as a starting point and then adjusted by ear.
I haven't used REW at all and don't have a mic or line level inputs for my laptop.
I am pretty satisfied without REW. DOn't know if it's flat or what but it sounds loud and clear to me. That's what matters.
I may tweak it more in the future as I watch more movies and listen to more music.

So far I have listened to bass tracks by DJ Magic Mike and trick daddy and I can tell you the subs play quite deep and are also musical as well as good for home theater when tuned properly. Too much gain in the 30-60hz range you can hear distortion and over excursion/bottoming out. Very important to tune these properly or they could be damaged.

I watched war of the worlds, the heat and something else I can't remember but they certainly pack a punch. This is the bass you can feel in your chest even in my 5500 cu ft room.

I think the next step ight be to add two more behind the seating just for good measure :P

Great to hear you're happy with them J. Most people would advise against entering parametric eq values from someone else's picture, simply because every room affects the frequency response differently. But like you said, what really matters is that you are stoked with them and enjoying your music/movies.

Btw, I can't imagine what Trick Daddy sounds like with those beasts. You must be from the 305 😉
