My thoughts exactly. I just finished four HUGE ported boxes for UM-18s and haven't even finished the HT yet and this is making me wonder. Very interesting that it's an 18" PR. Obviously aimed...

If it's the MOUNTING FRAME of the driver you're talking about, the part the mounting screws go through and NOT the basket that actually sits in the mounting hole, then grind away! Make that OUTER...

There are always "better subs." But the question is "Do you REQUIRE better subs and how much more money for X% improvement worth it to you?" I'm not smart enough to just look at T/S parameters and...

I think we all get "that look" from time to time, whether it be from our SO's, friends or family members. NWCgrad sent me, someone he doesn't know at all except here on AVS, some slab nuts for free....

Beautiful work. You get an appreciation for the size of these things when you see how small the paint tray looks. :eek: Really like the inset handles. So pro-looking. :cool:

Yup, that was my point. Trying to repair that plate amp will be expensive and totally not worth it. For what it would cost to buy a refurb plate amp (if you can find one that fits and has the same...

Sounds like a crossover issue. I'd check the solder joints for a bad/cold solder joint or a loose connection. Also make sure you didn't create any solder bridges, which is accidentally electrically...

Every room is different. The cubic feet, shape, dimensions, wall construction, room treatments all...

With a full size (4' x 8') CNC like he has, I'd imagine he has a full-size (1.5HP or better) dust collector, maybe even with a cyclone/separator. Would be curious to know as well. :)

That's not a ground loop or ground problem noise....almost sounds like white noise. Are you feeding the amp a signal of some kind? I see you don't have the DSP version of the iNuke; what are you...

Looks great so far! The shop did a good job cutting the parts for you. Glad to see you're using plenty of glue. As you've already glued the port in, spray paint is probably the best way to paint...

What cowboyupatl said may very well be true. But, to make them 220v compatible, it MAY BE something as easy as moving a jumper wire inside the amp. Some amps for the US market have 110-v only...

Airspace for all four of these cabs is 21.7cf gross, before driver, port and bracing displacement. The goal was to have 18cf net. I'm pretty sure I'm still slightly above 18cf. I tried to use the...
