Hey guys, figured I would try to document this build.
2X SI HT18
1X iNuke 6000dsp
I'm still deciding on how to finish these boxes, one will be out of the way mostly hidden, the other one will be in plain sight. Also need screws/bolts for mounting the woofers, any input?
Still got to figure out how to wire these up and where to drill the hole for speakon
I learned a lot from the following threads.
MiniMarty Build Adventure
Once I got this far, I realized i forgot to paint the ports black... pain in the ass to do it after lol, I did not make the mistake of doing this on the second one.
I will be going with deckover smooth for paint. Darkest color they could do it in was "Slate" which is a very very very dark gray, almost black. Should match my Q acoustic towers nicely.
primed, forgot how bad this oil primer stunk lol
Boxes are done, will mount the feet, drivers, chassis and run all the wires to where the amp will be located. My biggest hurdle is lugging these monsters downstairs, that should be fun.
Well I got everything mounted and brought downstairs last night by myself, Hole Lee Crap were these things heavy. I'm a very strong guy, and these things kicked my arse. Thank God I mounted the drivers downstairs, i would've needed another guy if I hadn't. It was in the upper 80's yesterday with high humidity in Boston, so I didn't get all the wires ran because I ran out of steam, but today I should be able to fire them up and get them tuned in when I get home
First sub is in its final resting location. Second sub needs to get pushed back flush with the couch once I run the wires.
I do NOT recommend the deckover product, it marks WAY to easily but I'm to lazy to redo it with something else.
