I have seen quite a few people interested in one of the martysub variations . I have had a couple people pm me wondering if I would build one for them. To build the whole thing would take too much of my time and I couldn't charge you enough to make it worthwhile, plus shipping that beast is a pain. I could however put together a flatpack with all the pieces cut, front baffle cutout, etc.Update
After two months I have built sixteen flatpacks for various people. I will continue to offer this option for people who just don't have the equipment or time to do it on your own. I have enjoyed having this little side business and its fun to let more people enjoy the power of Marty !
Their are three main types of Martysubs (with variations for Full and Minimarty size) which have all been designed by Ltd02 ... Thanks to John
1) Full Marty (Green in graph) 2' by 2' by 4' ~ 17hz tuning in 11cuft box (1100 watts)
2) MiniMarty (Green in graph) 2' by 30" by 36" ~17hz tuning in 10cuft box (1100watts)
MiniMarty (Green in graph) 2' by 2' by 40" ~17hz tuning in 9cuft box (1100watts)
3) Martycube (Black in graph) 2' by 2',by 2' ~20hz tuning in 5 cuft box (1100 watts)
4) Just for fun the blue line in graph is 4cuft sealed sub (1100 watts)
5) Just for wows is the red line which is Martycube with Uxl18 driver (2200 watts)
For the below graph the driver is Dayton Audio RSS460HO-4 18" (except for red) Other drivers have been graphed by Ltd later in the thread.
The only tools you would need to complete the sub with are clamps and a drill.
Pricing is :
1) Marty and Mini Marty...............$250 plus shipping
2) Martycube.................................$200 plus shipping
I would charge exact shipping prices for each person. I would also provide help through email once your building if needed.
Do you want explosions in your house to rip apart your foundation... Ok , maybe just rattle the dishes ! I would not be going lower for my price so don't pm wondering if I would do it for less. I am trying to make some cash so my wife stops wondering how much my home theater is worth and also trying to help out those who want a martysub but don't have access to my woodshop. If you want to order a flatpack then Pm me.
Here are some pics of the Martycube.
Here is an instructional guide to building the Cube
Here's a comparison of full marty vs cube in my room
Alright, the initial results are in. I decided to try to be a bit more technical for my initial impressions. I went to here
and downloaded 15,20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90 hz tones. Then I set the sound level and played them through the full marty (24 by 24 by 48"). Then swapped out driver and played them through martycube at same volume, same everything else settings, in the exact same sub placement in the room
Here are the numbers
15hz full marty +5 dbs
20 hz full marty +3.5
30hz full marty +2
40hz full marty +0.8
50hz Cube +1.2
60hz Cube +2.2
The cube did pretty close to what Ltd02 graphed. To me very impressive. I then did a couple of other tests. I gave the cube 2dbs eq from the inuke3000dsp at 20hz. It pulled the cube to around 1db down at 20hz. The other test was a loud blast of 50hz at reference +2 level. THe full marty did 116dbs and the cube 117.5dbs. No chuffing or noises.
And here are pics of the flatpack when it arrives to youAccessories
