Unless he wants to come play with the big boys and go IB!

And never fear. The journey is not over yet. He still must tackle the EQ/room acoustics with sophisticated electronics and advancd measuring principles!

don't worry about the thickness. I bought the 1.5" thick one, and I peeled it in layers...just make sure you apply it to all surfaces evenly and about a good 2" thick and you'll be fine.

Hi,

I've been reading the diy subwoofer forums for quite a while and I think I'm ready to have a go at building one, but need some help. My main purpose is to build the best I can for music not movies. I currently use an Axiom EP500 but want to see if I can do better.

I really like the idea of the 18" sealed as per this thread. I've read a lot about sealed vs ported and want to have a go at 2 sealed boxes. I'm looking at getting a crown amp (maybe a K2) as it seems to have excellent reviews at handling subs. I want to get some high quality 18" drivers known for accuracy with max power being a secondary consideration. I can plug in the tech specs to the simulators but I don't yet have a good feel as what makes one driver better than another and was hoping someone could advise Price right now is not the first consideration as I don't want to limit any options, but of course my funds aren't endless.

Thanks in advance for your help!
-James

Someone put together a list of common diy drivers, but I'm open to any suggestions:
18" Aura NS18

18" lms ultra 5400

18" Mach 5 Audio IXL 18.2.2

18" Mach 5 Audio MJ18

18" Ficar audio Q18

18" Soundsplinter RLp18 D2

18" eD190v2 by Elemental Designs

18" Maelstrom-X by DIY Cable

18" XXX by Resonant Engineering

Don't be shy, start up a build thread for your project This isn't really the place for questions on a new build.

welp, it's been a while, but my DEQ2496 took a dump...so I've been subwooferless for a few weeks.

Debating between a DCX2496, another DEQ, or the MiniDSP.

any input would be appreciated.

If your amps do not need more the 2V to reach max output then the MiniDSP balanced 2x4 version is the perfect solution and has more functionality then the other choices.

I hope mine still works. I probably haven't used it since you last posted in this thread.

One of the best purchases I have ever made.
