Just thought I'd share my bedroom sub. My wife said "hey let's go to best buy a purchase a subwoofer!" I said "honey, honey, honey, slow down! I'm Mr. DIY, I don't buy manufactured products. If you want something I'll build it." She was on board and next was to find out what she wanted.

She said "I want something tiny, that gets loud. I want something like the sunfire or that definitive technology sub you showed me." I said "No problem!!!"

So I went to work

Now as you can guess, my wife was freaking out! I had to calm her down quite a bit. "Baby shhhhh baby, it's okay. I still have to do a bit of sanding, it'll get smaller when I when I sand. Think about it."

So by this time she had calmed and gave her trust to me knew that Mr.DIY knew what he was doing!

F9B611FB-BC6D-4C4F-B51D-0D49D9E9D212.jpg

After I placed it in she was all smiles! (That's what she said) she was glad to see all that sanding had made it smaller.

So onto the specs.

4-12" TC Sounds Epics
14.5 cu ft net tuned to 17hz
Peavey IPR2 7500 wired to 2 ohms per channel (way too much power)
Velodyne sms-1 for eq, subsonic filter, ect.
WAYYYYYY overkill for a master bedroom (11'x15'x8')

For reference that is a 65" plasma

Oh and I don't plan on keeping it like that. Once summer hits I'll finish sanding and paint it.
Thanks,
Dan

Great woodworking! The flared ports are a nice touch. How's it sound?

"I realize that somebody playing free music isn't as commercial as a hamburger stand. But is it because you can eat a hamburger and hold it in your hand and you can't do that with music? Is it too free to control?" - Don Van Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart) discussing commercial success in the music biz

It sounds crazy! But in a good way. Very clean bass that goes deep, but loud at the same time.

I wonder if there is a roll off in my chain that starts at 25ish hz or so? As you can see on my tv screen the sms one has the 20 and 25 hz levels pegged. When they're at zero the graph looks the exact same as +6. Does that mean it's supposed to raise it 6 decibels? It dosn't. Hmmm

Um, 4 TC motors in the bedroom?! Wow. And I thought I loved deep, tactile bass...

My wife tolerated the footprint one of my entry level subs; a sealed 15" employing a Dayton DCS-380 and Yung plate amp dubbed the "SS-15 Mk II". Can't hold a candle to your rig, but It's much more than enough for our bedroom.

Nice.

I thought for sure that thing was going under the bed to add some stealth thump to your "workbench"!
