Plus it has a 9-way highpass filter, which is nice.

Simple and clean - nice job Astroguy!

Well, here is mine. I actually built it a couple of years ago with help from a few on this forum. It is a 15" quattro with the PE amp. I wasnt very creative with the box, but I am a refinisher at an automotive collision shop so the finish(Dupont base/clear) is like glass.... so many of the other ones on here are absolute works of art though!!! Also, that is a 60" Sony SXRD just to give a size ratio...

Very nice finish, that piano black is the holy grail of speakers that very few attain.

Thanks, I am very proud of it! I just wish I had been more creative with the box now. I am thinking about incorporating some brushed aluminum feet or something to it. maybe some kind of lower platform or something to spice it up... anybody have any ideas for me?????

The finish is duplicolor truck bed liner. First sub build, and was for my high school adult ed wood shop class project.

What drivers are you using? The enclosure looks great. I have used the duplicolor truck bed liner a few times and have always had great results.

just finished building this with my daughter as a xmas present for her boyfriend.
it's for music only and will be paired with his ancient radioshac minimus-7 speakers.
specs:
EQHS-8, 4 Ohm
PE 70W plate Amp
External dimensions: 12.25" cube
3/4" MDF all around
1 lb acoustofill (or whatever it's called)

works out to about 48Hz tune, 100dB plus down to ~40Hz


sounds nice, my daughter thinks her boyfriend will be very happy (of course hers is better, eqhs-12 nightstand sub back on page 7 or so..)

I'm going to be making a clone of this for my own bedroom to pair with some of Zaph's B3S single driver speakers...

Wow, so much talent displayed here!
On a more pedestrian note, I have a set of WWMT lcr's and a sealed 12" tc2000.
The l/r are powered with a hefty tripath, and the tc2000 is hit up with a buttkicker and basis. Really like the wwmt's, a tried and true design.

Just finished up with my first "real" speaker, "The Statments" center channel. I still need to round it off and paint it, but I'm not going to do that until I build the rest of them and get into my new house.

Got the DIY bug myself.

The first pics are from the TC-3000 build. I am actually going to try another enclosure with this sub even though it performs very well now. Either a dual sealed TC-3000 (I already have the other driver) or a single 6 cu. ft. TC-3000 with 2 CSS 18" passives. Any thoughts out there?

The second pics are from a project I am currently working on. I am making 2 enclosures, both with 12" TC-2000's and an 18" CSS passive. I still got a lot of sanding and routing to do on these but I did put one together to listen to and am impressed so far with the performance.

When I get more time I want to design and build some subs that at least come a little close to Shinobiwan's looks. Those Shinobiwan speakers are one of the best looking I have ever seen regardless of whether they are commercial or DIY.

Thanks,

Yes it is a mean sucker and will be even meaner once I add the second. If anyone has any idea's on what enclosure would work best with dual TC-3000 15's then I am all ears!

Thanks in advance.

Here is the Rythmik Audio DS1500 I built from left over 1259 cabinets from 10 years ago . I guess I am a pack rat. They were built like tanks I just couldn't see throwing them away !

Love the LCRs. How do you build passive crossovers?

Great work people !



BigBoar,

Superb finish, true piano gloss !!! Damn if I knew how to do a piano gloss like this. Congrats

Ask yourself mortal , do you have as much displacement as me ? The answer is no unless you have a Windmere fan sub.

The drivers are LMS 5400 18", with matching TI cone PR's ( 4 of them ) I have more pictures of the build in my LMS 5400 build thread.

Mjaudio, did you sell that other TC 3000 15" on eBay, I know I looked at it, but I didn't see if it sold or not. Thanks for the appreciation, there was a LOT of hard work involved in this build. BTW, I like the routing you did on your sub, I would have painted it a nice satin instead of bedliner, but not shabby at all.

The sub was supposed to be a satin but I was using a can and it spit up and ruined it. Out of frustration I held the can about 20" away and made that finish as I wasn't about to go back over with the sander again. Next time I will have someone else do the painting as it is the one thing about this hobby I do not like.

I still have the other TC-3000 and just made up a pair of TC-2000's with the CSS 18" passives which sound good. I need to make up another design to utilize the extra TC-3000 but have not had the time.

If you have any ideas on what to do with (2) TC-3000's I am all ears. I do know about the Ear's dual sealed and I know I can do a smaller version of your sub with (4) CSS passives but to be honest I haven't given much thought as to what would work best yet. The TC-2000 pair I use for music and the TC-3000 beast will be added for movies.

I will eventually make all new enclosures which is what is great about this hobby, MDF is cheap.

I did subscribe to your thread by the way, I wish I was in Canada to hear this!
