Yes, performance is very similar between the two. You will be very happy if you go with it.

Great, I'm building a new tv console soon to accommodate our new projector screen and flat screen. So this will be the next build after I recoupe some more fun money.

Fr8, it wont work on my iphone or ipad but works on the computer. Darn apple. I was able to download it from the original site and will listen to it later. Lots of good stuff on that site.

I'll do a second coat of primer tonight and sand it and then give it a coat or two of Rustoleum flat black latex paint and call er good.

Hopefully this won't look too terrible being applied with a 4" roller on the top/bottom/back/sides and a brush on the front baffle...



That looks awesome. I see you recessed the front baffle a little. Are you going to build in a grill? As far as the 4" roller, I used it to do the undercoat on mine before the duratex and it should be fine. The trick I find is that once you are done with one side, then barely touching the box and with no paint at ll on the roller pass it through again in every direction, very lightly, almost like hovering.

Either way it looks amazing. Awesome work.

Martycube deuce coming along. I am just as excited about this one as I was about the first one. Again, I cannot thank the folks here enough for all the help. I will extend this out to everyone, if you want to build a martycube or one of the other subs, first I would say buy the flat pack from Chaluga, well worth it. Then if you still decide that you want to build your own or need to put it together and are in the Seattle/Pierce County area and need a place and tools to build it get in touch with me. I love to do this kind of stuff and always like the idea of learning something new.



Flynnr's Avatar Flynnr 10:24 AM 02-28-2014
Lookin good - yup I am going to do mine a tad differently than the others and try a recessed baffle and then make a grill for the front. I like the sleeper-ness of it like in the car world. Ive had a big turbo'd wagon as my daily driver up until last summer smile.gif


cessna1466u's Avatar cessna1466u 10:31 AM 02-28-2014
I love wagons, back in the day.... Late 80's and early 90's I have a Toyota Cressida Wagon with a turbo and 2 12" subs in the back. I loved that thing. The wife hated it, to this day she wont let me get another wagon. Looked just like this one, same color and all. Do send pics of the grill. I recessed the sub but had a hard time figuring out the grill since the surround on the sub sticks out about another inch or so.

Wagons are bad@ss!




cessna1466u's Avatar cessna1466u 10:38 AM 02-28-2014
Ok, THOSE are wagons. Mine was a stretched out old beater. Then again we are talking late 80's here. The choices where slim. It was either this, or the Volvo wagon which I couldn't afford. This was during high school. I would have a hard time choosing one today. So for that I stick with a minivan.frown.gif

Thanks. An interesting mix of one of my Favorite Artist's pieces: Ludovico Einaudi - Nuvole Bianche.

I think the bass in the remix kills this beautiful song though :P

I don't know what company Seaton uses for cables. I have 2 of them since I used to own Submersives. A friend of mine bought a cable straight from Mark so you could go that route.

I also bought some from Funky Munky and 2 of them caused hum and 2 did not.

Sorry I'm not more help! smile.gif

The cables we use come from markertek.com . You can find the XLR cables we use here. Here are the equivalent RCA-XLRs. IMO it's worth the few $ more for the connectors and wire of better construction/build quality, but Monoprice is cheaper.

Here is the cutout for the si18 with recess.

The diameter of the cutout is 18_7/16". This is a good fit. Comfortable fit. The website says 18.5" which would be a sloppy fit.
cessna1466u's Avatar cessna1466u 05:31 PM 02-28-2014
True, 18.5 will leave a pretty decent gap. Here is the caps I was talking about and on one of the pics you can see what a 18.5" cut is. These are plastic 5/16" hole plugs.

Looking clean! I can't wait for mine!

Having problems with the top. I think my saw blade has some play in it because my top is not square. I still need that and the braces inside. Then rounding over and filler. Unfortunately I have to go play in the snow tomorrow. I got the duratex yesterday and plan on hopefully painting them both Sunday. So I think by Tuesday they will both inside. Wish there was more time in the day.

Flynn! Nice B5 Avant! I used to have a stage 2.5 B5 A4 back in the day. Everything but the turbo upgrade! It was a total track who..re.

Thought it might be useful to post driver / port performance. I forgot i had my crossover on the AVR set to 80Hz still. But this was with no EQ on the nuke, and no audessy on the AVR.

MV = -20
Sub volume on AVR = -12
gain knob on inuke ~ 3/4 or 3 o'clock position

driver measurement was ~10" in front of driver, port measurement was taken with the mic inside the middle port. Then the two signals were averaged out.

There is a guy selling 3 crown K2's on the emotiva forum for $500 each. They would be a good choice because they are fanless. I told him to post them on here as because they are fanless, I'm sure people would snatch them up quick for living room use. They would be great for a marty sub!!

Sure is quiet tonight...guess everyone is working on their cubes!!! Got my iNuke and most of the wires in.

What kind of wire do you use to wire the sub to the speakon connector in the back? I have some 15 year old monster cable, will that work?
cessna1466u's Avatar cessna1466u 10:41 PM 03-01-2014
I asked around and was told that 12g wire would work just fine. I put a banana plug connector on the back of my cube and ran 12g speaker wire from Monoprice to the speakon connector.

BTW, the previous owner of our house ran speaker wire to the rears about 15 years ago and it is monster cable. Still working perfect!

Saturday night is always quiet . I'm using 14ga and it works fine. You must be antsy to fire it up ?

All I need is time which I won't have for another week or two. When I start I will be able to knock out both boxes in a day and then it is just assembly from there. I know you have been putting things in the first post, but maybe a checklist of some sort may be in order! Because I keep thinking through the build in my head and keep remembering things I need. Also, I wish we had an iNuke master thread. I was going to start one, but didn't figure it would go anywhere because I have no knowledge or input ...yet!

Pretty much everything is in post one except wiring. I asked for someone who knows to put together the different option a few posts back but never happened.
