Forum Introduction and my 12" DIY Sub Enclosure
Hey guys, I'm new here and this is my first thread & post on AVS Forum. I've lurked for quite a while, but finally decided to join and share my DIY project, but also seek guidance in planning my next DIY Subwoofer enclosure.
From my younger days, I had a 12" JL Audio W6v2. It had been collecting dust so I decided to put it to use. I do not have a HT setup, but do enjoy listening to music, and thoroughly appreciate having TONS of bass, or at least the ability to rattle my house with bass, if I'm in the mood.
From my internet research prior to designing and building the enclosure, it's a transmission line slot-ported enclosure. From what I've read on here, the port is similar to a homewrecker design in that there's almost 8' of porting inside the enclosure. The entire enclosure is 3/4" MDF. I'm pretty good with wood-working, so this wasn't a difficult build. The front baffle is 1.5". I used wood glue in addition to screws to assemble. I used silicon caulking to seal the inside edges. I opted to install a Dayton Audio 250w subwoofer plate amp. I didn't want a separate stand-alone amp for the sub.
I attached a few pictures. The side view shows the transmission line port.
Thanks for looking.
