congratulations on a fantastic project and excellent write-up kevin!


you may very well have set the record for largest delta from 'initial concept drawing' to 'final build'. ;-)


build quality looks top notch...definitely a work of art there.


...


on another note, the reflections that marty spoke of probably are not having as much of an effect because the 50 degree (vertical) horn in the mains. as a result the reflections are probably coming in low enough so as to be pretty much overwhelmed by the direct line spl.


just out of curiosity, the ev's are passive right, or did you go all in for the active?

Listen. It's All Good.

Thx John. The exl212's are the passive model, and the powered version is the exl212 p.

http://www.electrovoice.com/product.php?id=1070

I read a bunch of reviews on the new "live x" series from electro voice and i liked what i read, and how they compared to the qsc's which i know some forum members have been happy with in their theaters.

anyhow, i stopped by pro stage sound and lighting ( pssl.com ) and gave them a listen. LOUD, CLEAN and DYNAMIC, is how i would describe them. They let me take home 3 of them and try them out. I was pretty much sold within 10 minutes of getting them hooked up. I have a sherbourn amp pushing them which does 200 watts at 8 ohm and 300 at 4 ohm, and it easily gets me way past reference no perceivable distortion.

A popular speaker that I can compare them to would be the sho-10's. Very similar top end but these have much stronger mid bass / chest slam than the sho's though, imo ( 12 inch woofer vs 10 inch ) Music and movies, now have some serious snap and bite, but with out being harsh.

I also changed out my 4 surrounds to JBL control 28's ( 2 way, 8 inch ) and they are cranking too! Here's a few low quality cell pics of the surrouds after i finished mounting them ( heavy little beast - I'd guess close to 30lbs per speaker )





Next up, I'm getting rid of all the movie posters and glass frames and going with bass traps / acoustic panels on the back wall, ceiling, and corners. I'm happy with the sound in my room now, as is. On the other hand I have heard treated theaters ( like Ivan Pino's and edogg's ) and have liked what I've heard, so I'm gonna go for it.

Love your build and great job with the write-up and pics! I am wondering how you ran your wires to get to the table without being to obvious?

007, thx!

It's actually not that hard to do.....

What I did was use a razor blade to make a 1/2 inch cut in the carpet near the equipment rack. I then made a similar 1/2 inch in the carpet where I wanted the speaker wire to come out. I then attached one end of the speaker wire to a fish rod kit ( basically its like a long fishing pole that's made to help you pull wire through places whether they be carpet, drywall, attics, whatever ).

Here's a link to help you out:
http://www.homedepot.com/p/Jameson-2...-23T/202456701

At this point it, it really helps to have someone helping you out. Have your helper keep an eye on the exit cut that you made and tell them to grab the fish rod as soon as they see it. Now you just have to keep jamming the fish rod in and through the underside of the carpet. As soon as your helper pulls it out the other side your speaker wire will come with it.

If you doing something similar and you get stuck anywhere along the way, start a thread and I, along with others I'm sure, will help you out.

That's how i figured you had done it, but unfortunately i do not have carpet in my room and hiding wires can be difficult. For my surround speakers we ended up actually running the wire through the wall to the outside of the house and then around to the back of the room where we made another hole to get back in. From here we ran a small stretch of plastic wire mold through my dining room so we could enter the hvac duct. The duct runs the entire length of my first floor so we used it to get the wires to there final spot. Turned out really nice but took an entire day to get it completed. As a bonus, and to keep the wife happy i put a pair of HTD in ceiling speakers in the master bath so she can listen to music taking baths, doing her makeup, etc. Just used the same duct and ran it a little farther. It's running as my zone 2 on my Denon so she was excited she could control it with her phone.

Ok, got a little off topic, but again thanks for the reply and i will most likely be looking for help in the near future when I decide to start building my diy sub! Thanks, and again it's a great looking table.

That zone 2 setup, you did for your wife sounds pretty slick. Also, when you say that running wires took you all day, i know EXACTLY what you mean. When I ran the wires for my 4 surrounds, even with a friend helping me I practically burned up a whole day too, and probably cussed more in just that one day, then i normally do in a year, lol.

Haha yes, there was definitely some cussing involved and lots of sweating since it was a little over 100 that day! Thankfully my dad was in town to help out.

Thx buddy.

Yeah, this build was a lot fun, and I enjoyed building something that was a bit unique.

Wife is happy with it too. She now has a place to set our bowl of popcorn when she gets tired of holding it in her lap. The other cool thing is that because the table is so heavy and the glass is thick as well, the bass can be pumping away but the glass top vibrates very very little.

Kev I have four subs now too and it's awesome . All the bass I need. No big upgrades needed. Finally have system dialed in.

This weekend I'm gonna finally get around to watching the newest transformers flick. I'm not expecting too much as far the plot goes, but it should be a good bassathon in typical transformers style!

Side note 2. My full Marty is still pulling heavy duty while a 4.7 cu ft car box housing a bravox 15 pumps near field into my mlp riser in the theater room. No one has ever come close to the full Marty...I believe there is an unsaid intimidation factor lol. The sad part is that I have carpet to finish it but after all these months of house and earth shaking movie nights with friends and family, it's still not a finished sub. Just poor rounded edged mdf sitting in my theater room wreaking havoc with my foundation and plaster walls. This makes me want to get the boys over and carpet this darned thing

Hey Kevin, just came across this. I knew you had built it but never saw the build thread. That is awesome, very classy piece of furniture. Love the detail and the use of the space. Very impressed man, you did a great job. Congrats.

This is 100% AMAZING and i want one! Great work and thanks for taking the time on this!

How do those glass supports work? if you bump the top too hard will it shift?
How would this work for mostly 2Chan music listening?

I have about 400 other questions but i'll start with two

whats up buddy, and thx you the compliment. A year ago, I had no DIY experience, so it made my day to hear that you thought something I made was AMAZING

So lets get your questions answered, and no big deal if you have plenty more....spending time on AVS is something I enjoy....

The glass supports are called standoffs. They make them in chrome, aluminum, plastic, etc. I think, somewhere in the thread I posted a link to where i got mine. Scroll through and see. If you dont spot the link, let me know and I can find out, if you'd like to build something similar. Be aware that the first set I bought on amazon, looked terrible...all scratched up with a uneven finish. The next place though I got them from was great and they came out beautiful. They are close to mirror polished, made from aluminum, and I think I paid about 40 bucks for 4 of them.

Here's how they work....the tops screw off and expose a stud. you then set the glass ( or whatever material your using ) on top of the studs. Your material needs to have holes drilled into it in the correct spot....so measure carefully: ) The stud then rise up through the whole in the glass, and then you screw the female cap onto the stud. This locks the glass in place and prevents it from moving at all.

here's a video i found on youtube that should help you out:

You also asked about 2 channel listening and if this would work. From a functional standpoint, sure this will work. Really it's just a ported subwoofer, dressed up a bit, and covered in a piece of nice glass. From a sound perspective, it depends.....

If you thinking about a coffee table sub design like this, I would first make sure that a subwoofer will work alright in the middle of your room, or where ever you'd like to have your coffee table sub placed (especially if this is going to be your only sub ). If I was you, Id take my existing sub and put it in your proposed location, and see if your happy with the sound ( no severe nulls ). If you are happy, then a coffee table sub in the same spot should sound fine too. If you hear a peak with the sub there, those can usually be eq'd out.

I will also tell you this....if you build something similar be prepared for attention/questions/compliments from your guest. People trip out on the coffee table sub and always want to see it working ( even non av types ). I'll usually have them sit on the couch, and then fire up some good Dubstep to get some nice cone excursion going on. The next thing everyone does is put their hand on top of the glass to feel it, and everyone is always surprised with how little vibration they feel ( thick/heavy glass combined with a well built enclosure ). I also have the ports pointing towards the couch and on big bass scenes you can feel the air pressure while sitting on the couch / I think it adds to the nearfield sensation.

If you have any other questions or needs anything else, just let me know.

Missed your comment to sooly, but wanted to respond.....

The carpet really is just aesthetics after all, performance doesn't diminish at all : ) I always love seeing your post about your full Marty. It's so obvious that you happy and blown away ( figuratively and literally ), hahaha.

Again what an awesome build. Thanks for posting the video. I have been looking at possibly doing a sealed build again and also a beveled glass top. So these standoffs are definitely going on the "to buy list."

I found my old receipt.....of where i got the standoffs from:

Thanks for that.

What thickness of glass did you use?

I see the standoffs can be used with up to 1/4" of glass. I think I may opt for a thicker piece than that. 5/8" - 3/4" Will depend on price.

The glass thickness was either 3/8 or 1/2 inch....I'm trying to go from memory here.

also, I think your misunderstanding the standoffs / you may want to again watch the video i posted ......

The threaded stud inside of the standoff is 1/4 inch. So you can use any glass thickness you want, since longer studs are avail if necessary. The only thing to be sure you do is have holes drilled in the glass for you that are 1/4 inch and then your set. If the wholes are drilled to much bigger than that, your glass might move around a bit, which you dont want.

Honestly, Im not sure id go more than 1/2 inch. It's plenty strong, and 3/4 would cost some serious $$$. But if you have the means, and like it...

Also search around the forum for a ottoman build a guy did recently. Came out really nice and might be an alternative to the coffee table if you like it better. I think his username is PGwalsh, but again im going from memory.

Thanks again. I have seen the ottoman build. You will see I have posted there also. I am looking at doing a sono style build like Bosso Raptors. Here s the product description:
Number Set of 4s in box:1
Barrel Length: 2"
Screw Mayor Diameter(Hole Size on Panel or Substrate): 1/4"
Maximum Sign Thickness: 1/4"

So maximum sign thickness was what I was talking about. I will be making a 18" (roughly) circle size of glass for the top. Not sure what I will do on the bottom yet. BUT I was only worried about the glass flexing was all. My last sono sub I did I had an acrylic top that was 25mm. Obviously didnt flex but does scratch easy. So this time I will be using glass.

This build turned out looking great. Do you ever have to turn on the lights and replay a scene just to see how the ottoman excursion looks, I know I probably would.

One more line down chrapladm
Number Set of 4s in box:1
Barrel Length: 2"
Screw Mayor Diameter(Hole Size on Panel or Substrate): 1/4"
Maximum Sign Thickness: 1/4"
The Set Screw can be replaced for a longer one. Therefore, there is no Maximum Sign Thickness (If the panel is thicker than 1/4", it is the sign manufacturer's responsibility to obtain the appropriate Set Screw)

Did you ever take measurements of how this integrated (the other subs together and this added in and ottoman by itself)?

Thx Luke.

I had a null at about 55-60hz, of about 8db, if I recall correctly. After adding in the coffee table sub ( 4th 18 ) the null was reduced by about 5db.

I can still see the 3db null in REW, but I don't hear it when I'm listening to music or watching movies.

Lately, I've also been thinking of moving my full size vertical Marty to the master bedroom, and replacing it with the Ghorn 2.0. Don't know if I'll do it or not since I'm happy with the output I have now, but I do think it would be fun, and I can only imagine how crazy a corner loaded Ghorn 2.0 would be in addition to the rest of my system.
