Very nice.

I REALLY like the look of the outlaw sub. Is that a Plus? Also what model LG is that?

Probably not. But I'll venture a guess that its the oldest one in this thread (so far).

This is one my dad built in college (61-65). It was powered by a 12 watt (tube) integrated amp that he made from a kit he ordered. The only application I ever saw it used in was with a stereo record player that had its own detachable speakers. There was a shielded cable coming through a vent from inside the record player (probably patched between the preamp and power section of the record player). The cable went to a box with three, three position switches that I'm guessing was a crossover. The output of that box went to one of the inputs on the kit amp. When I got the speaker all the other stuff was long gone (destroyed in a flood).

You can see from the first picture of the front and the picture of the speaker from the rear that the original speaker hole was much larger (12"). I can only guess that he either was never able to source a 12" speaker or he blew it and couldn't source a replacement. I am pretty confident that the speaker that is in there now, and the panel its mounted on, came from an organ that he disassembled for tubes and parts.

I never knew my dad so I am taking wild stabs in the dark to the details above. I'd love to give it 2nd life somehow, in his honor, but there is no way my wife is going to allow this in the living room. I tried it as a guitar cabinet with a Celestion G12 but it was way too boomy even with the port shut. Someday~~~~

That's flat out cool! Very old school, but it's really innovative. Variable port and fiberglass insulation? The man was ahead of his time.

Believe it or not, it came from a Rooms-to-Go overstock facility...normally I would never buy furniture from them but we took a look in what is essentially their outlet facility and loved this piece as well.

It was absurdly expensive @ MSRP but it was the last unit and had some minor damage so they cut it down by 75% (!). Paid $800 and this thing is SOLID wood; no pressboard here....anywhere.

I'll take a look this evening and see if I can find make/model.

The craftsmanship is beautiful - their attention to detail is quite evident. It sounds very nice too, so this sub turned out to be a really good purchase for me.

Sorry for the crappy quality pic. This is how I currently have mine set up. All subs are in the back of the room.

Is that how big your room is? If yes, that's insane amount of bass.
post #1935 of 2536
LMAO! Yes that's how big my room is.

I always get comments about my carpet. My money was spent on equipment because I don't plan on staying here.

Thanks for the compliments. It is a lot of bass even when I have them dialed back.

Jim Wilson, I really like that gloss black sub you got.

That is a terrific find!

The first commercial subwoofer for home and studio use was the Servo Static 1 by New Technologies Enterprises. Designed by Arnie Nudell and Cary Christie in Nudell's garage in 1966. The $1,800 sub cost 40% more than any other complete speaker system listed at Stereo Review and was released for sale under the Infinity name brand. It used a customized Cerwin-Vega 18 inch driver with a servo driven amp. Maybe later I will add a photo.

Just to be clear, I was in no position to spend $1,800 when I was in highschool...

Late 1960's, wasn't it? You trying to make me feel older than I am?

You may be the first forum member to have a fireplace custom built for a subwoofer!

The storage nook for the logs has been put to far better use! Acoustically that has turned out to be an ideal spot for the Velodyne. It measures flat down to 10 Hz.

Good catch, it was 1966 and not 1996, and I understand feeling older than I am
post #1945 of 2536
Beautiful Funky Waves. Really special. I like the black woofers against that would color...both of them! It's pictures like that make me understand the value in his craftsmanship.
----------------------
And yeah I was thinking that I had completely misunderstood the subwoofer roots by that 1996 comment. I was confused, mainly because everything I have read on the internet thus far has been true.

I changed them so that the drivers face the walls. It helped eliminate a dip I had as well as gave me more room gain. I actually prefer the look (didn't think I would) because I think they match better with all the speaker grills on:



Here's a pic of the front stage with the projector screen down:



Another pic showing acoustic panels on the wall/ceiling:



Here's a pic of my second row seating. I didn't have much room back there, so I had to improvise.

Check out my new end tables...Dual Outlaw LFM1-EXs! Love them! These things near field took my HT to a whole new level!


Very nice!

That is by far the finest looking sub I've seen in some time. I bet she sounds sweet too. Congrats!
