Great looking sub Donny. You must be dying to install the driver and put it in it's final location smile.gif

That can says dries in 30 mins. How fast did it dry to the touch and how fast until it was dry dry? You can buy that at box store, or??

Also, that is going to take a lot of paint. Go as far as you can with the primer. The primer will help with the edges too. It's all about prep work. Get it looking good with the primer, and then it'll look good with the pain. Believe me, I'm going through this right now on a build. Major pain in the butt.

Looks great so far!

Thanx tux, i was going to use the BIN primer sealer and then sand it with 120 for at least 2 times and see how good it turns out. I definitely agree that if the primer looks good, I am more than half way home to a good looking paint job.

A lot of prep work for sure but i am really enjoying building this sub...

The watco lacquer dries to the touch in 10 minutes if you put a thin coat. Got it at rona.

Donny, this is GORGEOUS.  The sub looks unique, classy and ready to get down to business.  Very impressive work.

You made a nice cabinet. Finally getting off my lazy bum and making some fancy furniture. No reason to not have a bunch of nice pieces.

Thanks. I haven't seen that at Rona before. I've only ever seen the WB stuff. I've been using ML Campbell magna max but can only buy it by the gallon.

Man I hadn't used lacquer in a few years. Oh that smell. When I was 20 I worked in a cabinet shop for a few months and had to spray lacquer in a poorly ventilated booth. Think I lost a few brain cells.:sly:

Finally got around to looking at some of these post, Mondays are the worst days for me. Way too much going on. Donny, that sub looks amazing. It looks very professional, I love it. I keep looking at it and 2 things come to mind. One is a nicely done, handmade acoustic guitar. I guess its the light color with the dark accent thrown it. The second is a yacht, don't ask me why a yacht, maybe because it looks fancy and I have been watching Epic Rvs lately and they have some yachts that use the lighter woods with the laquer coats. It really does look nice, I think its great, you now need to get that center re-done to match.

BTW, please don't let your wife throw a doily or what ever you guys call it up there on top of this one, it needs to be displayed in all its glory.biggrin.gif:D

Thanks,
Not going to do anything with. Center till I figure out mains. With tux bringing 1099's and his new one and Warren bringing the tempests to the GTG I am going to wait till then to audition them. Winner sees my living room.

Hey that's not a doily, it's a runner:rolleyes:

That sounds like a good plan. I decided today that I am not going to do anything fancy with the center or mains just regular shapes and out of mdf and light coat with duratex. I want to get them in there and get some use out of them. I have way too many other projects going on. I don't want to spend all summer in the garage. Come next fall I will attempt to get fancy.

Just don't round corners of speakers and you can veneer over top later. Or just a tiny round under 1/4".

That's going to be hard, I really like my new 5/8" round over bit. biggrin.gif mdf is not too pricy, I'm hoping to go down to California in summer, my brother has a cabinet shop with a full CNC machine. I'm hoping to design something by then that he can just cut up for me and I can bring home and put together.

I'm having trouble getting a response in my build thread so I'm going to ask here: for a full martysub, what is my laundry list of misc items? Do I need acoustic foam? Where does it go? How much area? What size wiring is necessary to go from the driver to the Speakon panel mount connector? How important are rubber feet on the bottom if I'm doing a vertical (up-firing) orientation? Is it advisable to hard-mount the sub to the stage or back wall if possible?

not essential but most put some form of dampening inside. Acoustic foam or polyfill from walmart pillows will work. Goes everywhere if you want but back wall is most important.

12-14 gauge wire is fine.Rubber feet are not needed for vertical, just cosmetic. Yes a good idea to mount vertical marty to wall is possible. I doubt it would ever fall over but its possible.

How would one attach polyfil to the inside of a sub?

I just stuffed one pillow on each side stuck between the bracing, leaving an air path down the center of the box. I used just two although I think LTD02 recommends three. I did rip the tag off to prevent flapping in the wind smile.gif. I believe the point is just to absorb sound reflections inside the box so it does not color the sound so I am not sure why some go to the effort to line the inside, but maybe there is a reason.

I cut open the pillows and then unrolled the poly fill and cut it into sections and then just stuffed them in the box using the bracing to hold it in place. I used 2 pillows and it filled out the sub nicely
