After 28 years of marriage.............I've learned a few things!  ;)

 

Think in terms of 30 days..................

 

For thirty days, leave little notes of endearment..................a little flower one week, her favorite chocolate the next...........in my case, I get my wife fabric vouchers since she is a quilter.  She may ask why..........my reply is she's my everything..................:o

 

 

After 30 days..................just casually mention, "BTW honey.................I'm building a new sub..........."

 

Works like a charm!  ;)

Explain please. 2' x 2' x 2' will be a lot easier to sell to her. Also the reduced price.

Well my wife certainly doesn't have a degree in Mathematics but she handles the banking for a massive company, actually one of the largest independent financial firms in North America. In any given day she's responsible for working with hundreds of millions of dollars...lol

So lets just say it takes a rather expensive shiny object to make her forget about how much I spend on things!....lol
Of course I think the budget I'm playing with for my HT is just slightly less then what you're dealing with!...lol wink.gif

hello, I'm currently building 2 marty cubes and have a question regarding feet for the enclosure. Is it ok to have the bolts for the feet protrude into the port area? Or should I

flip the box and have the port at the top?

 

thanks guys

To clarify- my GF isn't rejecting the idea of a full Marty because it'll be in the way or something. I have my own game room which she doesn't use. She's rejecting it because it's 11 cu ft and my room is < 260 sq ft. tongue.gif She's also concerned with how the two of us would move it around.

I will probably be able to talk her in to okaying a cube or two.

I say go for it. The bolts aren't going to block any significant amount of air.

Lankford,

 

Id say your ok.  After all, it is a ported box.  If you wanted to, you could dab some silicone or PL or glue or whatever around the protruding bolt.  

 

This might be a bit difficult to do though if you already have the top attached and/or because the bolt will be coming into the port area as you mentioned.  if you really wanted to do this though, maybe measure first and know where the bolt is going to break wood.  Put some glue/silicone/caulking there first, and then screw in the bolt.  Hope that makes sense.

 

Think about how much air could escape between the space between the threads of the bolt and the wood it's biting into.....not much.  The bolt will also nearly no impact on air flow due to it's size.

I am upgrading the cabs for my cubes. I need to remake them from scratch to do what I want to do so I am selling my old cabs. One at first to make sure it works out. It looks like this
ybe7ahan.jpg
I just painted over the mdf and didn't round the corners. I knew they would be just temporary. If you round corners and duratex it will be just fine.

If your interested pm me. Will be charging shipping fees plus 40 bucks (buys me a new sheet of mdf). The front baffle is just surface mount ,not flush mount so any 18 inch driver will work.

I need a ltttle help again. This time with the DSP. When you have done all of your settings at the end, how do you make sure that the amp is using those settings. For example I made adjustments and labeled it "3/28/14". How to I make sure the amp is using those settings and not one of the others.

The settings are done in real time. That recall/store setting is simply there so you can create different profiles. If you go to one of the EQ sections and set a 4dB boost at 20Hz- it's immediately boosting 20Hz by 4dB (provided you connected to the amp before making the change, of course)

Want to check to make sure it's still using your custom settings? Check to see that a custom settings you enabled is still set.

I did a lot of research , then did some more , and finally figured a way ( I think ) to have the look I want. I won't reveal my solution because I am only 90% sure it will work. Once I have tried it next week when I'm back in my shop I will provide pics of what I have done.

It's purely cosmetic , nothing to do with performance of the sub. If it does work as well as I hope it may lead to some people not using duratex for a finish. :what:

My wife buys a bunch of small stuff on a weekly basis, so when I go for something big like a sub there is no questioning it.

Denon 4520CI on order - Polk 9.3 w/ wides
Sharp 60" - HTPC - Wii U - Sony BDP-S1100 - Monster HTS3500
DIY sealed 15" x2 sub build almost started

So just saw an advertisement for the dual 15" legacy sub and thought to myself, I have 2 18's downstairs waiting to be cubed....is it possible to build a dual Marty cube? LTD02 want to Mach up a dual Marty cube? The Marty squared and then cubed? Following the same design as the cube accept 2 subs instead of one...

Wouldn't really be a Marty "cube" though....lol

Anything is possible, but what dimensions were you thinking? Like 24" wide x 24" deep x 48" high?

As far as modelling it; just take the graphs and add 6dB.

I guess I was thinking 2' deep, 2 ' high and 4' wide with ports in 1 or both sides. Imagine taking 2 Marty cubes and turning them so the ports are vertical putting them together and eliminating the tops. Just thinking out loud.

So I wanted to share my thoughts/concerns on my initial listening to my new martycube. I have an ixl 18" and an inuke 6000dsp. The sub sounds good, not great, but I'm sure its cause i don't have something right. I have it hooked up at 4 ohm, put my hp at 20hz with a 12db butter worth. I put a lp on at 80 hz. I put a limit of 1650 watts on it also.

I put a splitter on my sub pre-out, and have it going to my new martycube and to my HSU VTF 15h.

I would say that listening to both today at the same time, I was getting about equal output. The VTF definitely had a lot more excursion, but was not distorting at all. By comparison, the 18" sounded comparable, but I was not getting very much excursion, but was reaching the "clipping" light on my amp when it was heavy bass.

I was expecting the 18" to crush my VTF. This was listening to rap music in 2.1 to really hear some heavy bass.

Is something not correct? Shouldn't I be able to get a lot more excursion and output out of the 18" sub without the red light flashing?

So basically a full size Marty but with two drivers. Which is also pretty much what I described but laying on its side.
