Much respect there - they have (and still are) making tremendous personal sacrifices for which I am very appreciate.

So had some time today to play around with a slightly different model of the dual opposed box I was thinking of doing before. 21" wide, 22" tall, and 38" deep with double baffles on both sides. It's roughly around 7.25 net cubes so a little smaller than ideal, but a stack of these (4 on each side of my center channel) would fit nicely. 1db wouldn't be a ton of concern with 16 drivers and 14k watts anyway. biggrin.gif Dados on the sides, vertical and horizontal bracing, and bottom panel.

I'd like to think this would be quite stiff. biggrin.gif







In a stain this might look quite nice:



This fits beautifully on 2 sheets. If I wind up building these I'd be happy to cut them for others as well:

I might be missing something, but where is the 4th side of the box on that cutsheet?

In order, first sheet has left, right, top, and bottom panels. Bottom panel has the dado groves for vertical bracing, and both inner baffles on it.

That looks like a nice cabinet...I bet a bunch of those stuffed with SI 18's driven by the LG clone would be sweet. Hmmm.

Yes sir. cool.gif It's hard to tell from the cut sheet since everything is scaled so small.

No doubt. The clone amps are great matches for the d2s, and the peavey/crest amps are great with the D4s.

Thanks Dave! Now that I'm almost done 'building' out the shop I have an urge to rip apart the theater and start over, lol. Especially after reading your thread. smile.gif It's safe to say I'm addicted to projects, haha.

Well you seem to have a knack for it. I actually skimmed back to the front of this thread and man things have come a long way. You'll find something to do. I'm going to be running my wires this weekend and it is gong to be tough due to the framing, so I am still putting together my plans today. I am going to take the weekend to do it and get prepped for sheetrock.

Looking back I noticed your wall traps and I am intrigued, they looked really simple to build. Where did you get the insulation for them? Also the corner traps you built, I did not see the inners, unless I missed it, but do you have any pics of your build for the corner traps? If you noticed in the picture I am modeling my room off of, there are front corner traps, kind of hard to see them, however they look custom though. I priced them and they are pretty expensive for something floor to celling. Looking at your pics of all your traps, I may just build my own now.

Dave,

Building treatments (frames/wrapping) is about as easy as it gets for DIY work. I got my rigid fiberboard from a local insulation supplier - they are pretty easy to find. You could just as easily use Roxul Safe N sound for those as well though and go super thick in the corners. 2-3 3" layers of that would really get it done for the lower frequencies. The corner traps are built in principal the exact same way, they are just thicker than the wall treatments in most cases. In many cases it is effective to leave an air gap behind the insulation as it makes it a bit more effective.

Cool, so essentially the corners are the same just taller? I thought I had seen you post where you stacked them in triangles or was that someone else? Working hands on in this room has defiantly given me more confidence on working on projects. I will certainly not hesitate to get my feet wet in some DIY, but honestly I am so happy with my set up, I really don't need anything right yet. If the Triax's work as well in the new room, I may not need anything for quite some time. However I am still love struck from Brandon's set up. My highlight was when we demoed the Metallica in thorough the never. I remember that one bass drop in the middle of the song, I believe it was "One". It was awesome, It felt like I came out of my seat and my stomach got that funny little feeling, that was so bad a@@. I know everyone else felt it. I would love to duplicate that someday.

You could sell those triaxes and get some serious DIY sub love going in there and recreate it, along with some extra capital to spend on other fun goodies in a quickness! Haha

I did toy with selling everything and getting 3 215's, but I don't think they will have enough bass, actually I know biggrin.gif I am going to wait and see what comes down the road in the next year. For now I am happy, I am going to enjoy this stuff for awhile. Heard rumors of a Danley SM60 HT version also want to see if Mark Seaton comes up with something or a Sealed version of the 215's. The only goodies I have coming is the Emotiva XMC 1. I got on the list and I am going to take a shot at it. Also a couple of new amps. If I don't get any word on the XMC 1 anytime soon, I am going to start looking at something else or roll with the 4520 with my 3 channel Emotiva XPA-3 for the time being. Gotta work on a screen and chairs first. That will be mission #1 in a couple of weeks.

The 215RM is going to be a sealed version I do believe smile.gif So at at least that option is already in the works biggrin.gif

I hope you see the xmc1. The Dirac is intriguing and I hope it's not a super lite version, but maybe we'll see. I'm meeting up with a few folks for emofest in a couple of weeks and will see if they have a working unit. Anybody wanna join us?

What are you using for speakers now? Did you sell the noesis and the danleys? Btw, you were right about the rx8s needing a little more juice. The extra oomph is nice.

I've kicked around the idea of DIY too since I really want to add a second sub. Just broke at the moment. Beast, what's the ballpark figure if I wanted to build a couple of your DO boxes incl the subs?

I hope you see the xmc1. The Dirac is intriguing and I hope it's not a super lite version, but maybe we'll see. I'm meeting up with a few folks for emofest in a couple of weeks and will see if they have a working unit. Anybody wanna join us?

What are you using for speakers now? Did you sell the noesis and the danleys? Btw, you were right about the rx8s needing a little more juice. The extra oomph is nice.

I've kicked around the idea of DIY too since I really want to add a second sub. Just broke at the moment. Beast, what's the ballpark figure if I wanted to build a couple of your DO boxes incl the subs?
212's are my mains right now. I sold the Danleys to Gooddoc. I actually texted him the other day as he was missing for awhile. He is fine, just busy.

I would like to go to Emofest, but a little far. I think Atlanta is the closest event to me? I'm going to gamble on the XMC 1, hopefully not to buggy.

For now I am happy, I am going to enjoy this stuff for awhile. Heard rumors of a Danley SM60 HT version also want to see if Mark Seaton comes up with something or a Sealed version of the 215's. The only goodies I have coming is the Emotiva XMC 1. I got on the list and I am going to take a shot at it. Also a couple of new amps. If I don't get any word on the XMC 1 anytime soon, I am going to start looking at something else or roll with the 4520 with my 3 channel Emotiva XPA-3 for the time being. Gotta work on a screen and chairs first. That will be mission #1 in a couple of weeks.

If you've got a desire to do something DIY, you know where you can find some design/build help. I'd be happy to design and cut something custom for you. smile.gif 8-16 SI sealed is just what the doc ordered. biggrin.gif

Got a chance to finish cutting and put together a friend's sealed enclosure today - twin Dayton Ultimax 15's in a front firing configuration. After some communciation issues with the machine, we got going again. smile.gif

From screen to machine - My buddy Mike (deantown on here) designed the box and we got silly with bracing and complexity for such a simple enclosure, heh. Dados on all 6 sides includes recesses on the top and bottom of the entire panel. We toyed with this 'HD cabinet ply' which isn't the best with knots and warping but we made it work for a very reasonable price. I'm hoping he starts a build thread soon.

Sketchup mockup:


Doing some toolpathing:


Cutting:



Dry fit and assembly - this part was a lot of fun! smile.gif

Ri-dun-cu-lous, Andrew.
Phenomenal bracing (love that brace bracket design), dadoes, recesses...fantastic!
One or two subs for deantown?
Hope he enjoys!
