Yes most definitely but I want to wait till the uxl-18 is in my hands before I do anything else to the sub.
I want to get some rubber feet as my living room floor is hardwood.
I also will be getting some threaded inserts as I know I will want to remove the driver more than once!!
I have to finish off my kitchen befor I can finish off my sub...so waiting until June for the uxl-18 suits me just fine.

Next week I am building someone a copy of this funk audio sub boxry5u8y7a.jpg
Not a flatpack. Will be assembling it fully and shipping it done except for finish. Pretty excited to do the curved build.

What are the dimensions of this sub?

Put a port on it and call it the Marty curve!

Your picture looks like oak.  What other woods do they have?  Teak?

veneer sold separately. I will put together a price list of woods. It's up to the person which wood they want. I know Western maple is 2.60 a board foot while black walnut is 8. Oak around 4. Teak I'm not sure.

Gonna keep an eye on the funky cube, its going to be a little challenging, but I am sure you are going to make it look easy.

I just measured my cube this evening and I see its 25.5 wide is that supposed to be that way or did I do something wrong?

I know this is the wrong section, but I figured I would ask here since I am sure you guys have dealt with it.....anyways, would it be beneficial to upgrade my receiver to one with audyssey xt32 for the dual sub integration? ..just curious if it even helps because of the dsp on the inuke and being able to use REW to dial it in?

It certainly can't hurt but IMO its not needed to have your subs setup really good.

XT32 doesn't have dual sub calibration. Audyssey Sub EQ HT is what calibrates two subs independently. Certain receivers, like the Onkyo 818 have XT32, but not Audyssey Sub EQ HT.

Regardless, if that is the only reason you are considering upgrading your receiver, then NO it is definitely not worth it. Most of the guys don't like the "flat" curve that Audyssey produces and make their own adjustments through the DSP using the REW software, so you will end up with the same result and save money by using what you already have.

Teak is usually wickedly expensive. Also, people should be aware western maple is quite different than the commonly used eastern/sugar/big leaf maple that is much more white. And you should check out Windsor for walnut. I usually don't buy lumber from Windsor but last time I was there they had walnut shorts for 6.99 a bdft.

I gotta ask, will these be cut to size? Because BC is fairly high humidity. I would hate to see what happens when they show up in Arizona and shrink a 1/64th at each joint. Even kiln dried is gonna take some moisture here and loose it there.

Western maple has very similar properties to eastern maple. The main difference is colour which is as you stated. Windsor plywood is very expensive for there solid wood. They sell a linear foot which isn't the same as board foot. Those walnut pieces you refer to are only 6 inches wide.

Pieces are definitely not cut to fit. They will shrink from humidity loss. I will send them with an extra inch in length and width. Cracking usually happens on the ends. I will recommend that the wood sits for a month or so before you use it. Give it time to settle. Even so there will be a little movement.

The windsor a around here do in fact sell rough lumber by the bd.ft. And the walnut I mentioned comes in various widths. $6.99 a bd. ft. That's for 4/4 though. And for shorts (Less than 8' long, usually less than 6' long, maybe that's what you meant). Not sure if you're getting 8/4 for $8 or what.

I agree though, Windsor is usually quite expensive. But their price on shorts is good.

If you're ever on the island, western maple is pretty common air dried from local mills. I can give you some numbers to guys selling for $1. But of course, air dried means you need to let it sit a bit. Pain in the butt.

Just picked up my 2 Martycubes that rockironwebb built for me. I'm poking around my 6000dsp. Please help me not blow anything up.

I'm running 2 SID2's. I run them in stereo, I've got the butterworth 12 with 20 Hz high pass. No low pass. No changes to PEQ or DEQ yet. I set the peak limiter to 105.8... which I think is approx. 1400 watts. I probably should turn Audyssey off right because it would have settings for my prior subs? Anything I'm missing here?? Thanks!

I'll post pictures and impressions in the next couple of days.

Things look good..

Only thing I might change is lower the wattage to 1100-1200 which is the range more typically seen for the si's, on the forum.

Still though, 1400 watts would probably be ok if your not running them crazy hot, or loud.

Ps- congrats on the new subs and amp ...... Your gonna love it smile.gif

I guess we get the mainland tax then. If I get lots of orders I will get some numbers from you. I don't know if people are going to want it. I just want some to have an alternative to paint and thin veneer.
