Wow, when I ordered that PE 15" subwoofer kit, a 19 1/8" X 19 1/8" X 19 1/8" cabinet did not seem big to me. Well it sure dose now after seeing it in person. And the 15" Titanic MKIII subwoofer itself, is impressive both in looks and it's weight. (this sucker is heavy) The amp is on the hefty side as well, although I am surprised by the total lack of heat sinks of any kind for the amp. The cabinet however I think may be a bit on the "weak" side as far as bracing goes. As it only has one brace inside it, that's only about 2" wide and 3/4" thick. And the entire enclosure is made from 3/4" mdf. I was thinking about buying their 3 cu ft "knock down" sub enclosure, as it's made from 1" mdf and cross braced. But that would have cost more to buy everything separate that way, by almost $100 more than what the kit was. And then, I would still need to glue & screw, and finish it. So in that case I may just build my own from scratch out of 1" mdf and cross brace it. As I think even with doing that, it would be cheaper than buying the "knock down" and all the other parts. And yet I still will end up with the pre-built cabinet that I got with the subwoofer kit itself.
Anyway I hope to have it up and running by this Friday (as I need to do some "room adjustments" to make it physically fit in..). And then I'll report back how it sounds.
But for now I'll show a few pics, of the parts in the kit. As their online pics don't show that much, either for the kit itself, or even for the separate various parts that are used to make up the entire kit.
