What would you do with a 32"Tall x 60"Long x 15"Deep space?

Might be able to convince wife to let me build a near field sub behind the couch in exchange for removing my (2) 4cuft ht18 subs powered by a 3000dsp on the front wall of my media area, restoring it to a "normal" looking space.

I'm already planning (4) infinity 1260w sub powered by a 3000dsp for another area of my house. It'll be 13x13x62 external with 1/2" ply. So I could use my existing 3000dsp for that and get a 6000dsp.

Option 1:
With a 6000dsp I can power (8) 1260w sealed. Before bracing, the box world be over 13cuft. This would cost $750 before wood etc.

Option 2:
I could reuse my ht18's and amp, sell the 4cuft boxes and build the ht18's into this form factor box ported. Cost would just be for the box, etc.

Option 3?

My thoughts are I think the nearfield effect would be more intense with the 1260w's. I don't know what I could get for my current setup finished subs but it would help offset cost for option 1.

I dont think a media area looks "normal" without at least a couple 18"s.

I think your subs and boxes would sell fast being that stereo integrity doesn't carry these subs anymore as you know. There's a lot of Chicago land area guys I think would grab this fast.

Is 13ft³ big enough for 2 ht18 ported? It it sounds more like a nice size for 2 sealed.

I'd consider a folded horn like Decware's WO32. It could be made to qualify as a good sub and a nice piece of furniture.

I'm working up a sketchup drawing for the wife to see if I can get the green light.

I have the HT18 D4 subs, so not I would probably have to stay with a sealed alignment right?

I still have his 10" in a Deathbox II in my garage! I've never seen any REW measurements of the wo32, with the horn path so short, I'm not sure what it would be tuned to.

I think the models suggest that 6-7ft3 is a good size for the D4

Wow that dresser sub box looks great you would never guess that's a sub box. Where will the sub fire through the doors in front with some fabric?

No, it's just going to be rear firing. I recess the back baffle so the dresser only has to be couple inches away from the wall. I played with the um 18 in my knock down cabinets in same position and they sound fine. Hopefully it will be up and running tomorrow.

Still have to distress it, poly seal it , knobs and should be good to go.

Showed my wife your picture and my plan backfired. She said she really likes what you did there. THEN, she said she really likes the table behind our couch! I immediately became enraged (you know, on the inside, with no change in facial expression, just a forced smile). She asked me why I couldn't build something that looked like an entertainment center to hide the subs. So I need to shut this idea down and start thinking about what I could do with an 8' wide x 9' tall wall. I guess I could lay two full marty's together lengthwise and then build a shelf thing on to of them to tuck in the avr, inuke and DVD player.

Anyhow, thanks for all the input guys.

Then entertainment center it is with built in Marty's. Build it put it in place and then show her so there's no going back. I feel your pain though If I didn't have the room in the basement there's no way my wife would let me do a sub box upstairs. Keep the fight going she's going to give up one of these days.

Awesome build. The enclosure seems a little small for duel 18s - if you don't mind me asking, what is the f3 on this? Are you using an extended low frequency circuit? It really is a piece of art and I want to start doing more builds into furniture. MDF and void free Baltic birch were my go to's however for a nicer higher end furniture grade build, I am considering possibly a red oak ply. I would prefer solids however I know they are less than ideal for a number of reasons and I cant seem to get my mitre lock router bit to work perfect with a ply. What higher end, exotics and stainable woods are suitable for a furniture grade builds I rather not get into veneers and the ilk.

Good job eqing! What did you use? How is the sub 15hz? I bet in a big open room like you have, you don't get help with your room, but still am curious.

Ok that is pretty damn big then. Is it sealed? Experiment with anything to flatten that dip at 70?

What would you do with a 32"Tall x 60"Long x 15"Deep space?

13"/14"/32" is the sealed box size going to be built and agreed on. Boxes will be placed in there proper Nearfield poundage space and thats it. This is going to be started this week. Your wife will like it once she figures out, its even back there. With the paint to match the trim its going to be sweet

Thanks Mike, despite the shut down of the media area project. The family room sausage sub (err i guess it will be two half links? Hehe) will be born!

Sausage Sub - help me design it
