Continuing the build process to outfit my new HT with primarily DIY speakers, this thread is for the build and documentation of a pair of subwoofers for the room. The room already has a pair of MartySubs that I've tweaked a bit, to fit behind the screen wall. Those go loud and deep, and give me great bass. The point of these subs are for more even sound distribution around the room.
The design is for a shallow, ported sub, that I can hide behind acoustic panels. To test my idea out, I'm using a different subwoofer, that I haven't seen in any build thread I've found yet, Dayton Audio LS10-44
. I don't know how much faith I have in these, but since I'm using left over BB from other projects, it's not that big of an investment to find out.
The subs call for a 1.1 cuft box for a ported design, to get down to 30Hz. The fronts are tuned to 15 Hz, but I'll take 30 Hz for these, given the space contstraints I'm putting on them.
How big are they, here's my cutlist and box mockup. The size and shape may look familiar to some, but I'll just say that I've never seen it ported before.
Ok, now the modeling in WinISD:
