thanks for all your help over the last weeks in helping me figure this out Thanks especially to Mr. Cazadores for the wiring tips. I have officially started!
Amp, will be using it bridged (4 ohms 1k Watts):Inuke NU1000
From mini DSP to the inuke via subwoofer cable:RCA to male Neutrik adapter
If there are too few volts to power the inuke coming from my unbalanced mini DSP (.75 input needed for the inuke, and the unbalanced puts out .9 max.)ART Clean Box (bump box)
This is going from the inuke to the speaker terminal via bare wire (to banana plug)Neutrik NL4 FX
This is the terminal I will be using:5-Way Binding post
Stuffing, at least 8 bags of this (am open to alternatives here...would cheap pillows do just as well?):Vistaon Damping Material
Wood is 19mm (3/4") MDF with a double baffle in front. Dimenisions are roughly 20" cubed on exterior (18.4" cubed inside for a total volume of about 3.2 Cubic feet after bracing, or roughly 90L)
I had the local hardware store do the cuts for me, all I have to do is glue, sand, and paint basically.
I am going to paint it black matte, it will be the third sub in my setup and I plan to build a second of these, if this one impresses me.
This is the expected SPL.
For the box, you will need these parts cut out for you (or cut yourself) from 19mm MDF. This gives you roughly 3.6 cft. or 102 L without bracing internal volume. With bracing, you should be able to get it down to 90L or 3.3 Cft.
Back = 50cm x 50CM x 1
Front = 50CM x 50CM x 2 (for double baffle, or 1x 38mm MDF)
Top = 50CM x 46CM x 1
Bottom = 50CM x 46 x 1
Sides = 46CM x 46CM x 2
Star with the bottom, and glue the sides to it first. The top will rest on top of the two sides after gluing them to the bottom, then you can add your bracing, and glue on the back and the front. Drill the holes for the woofer.
Paint it, wire it and hook it up!
If it is really nice, then I will be selling my two other subs and making a total of four of these.
