Here's mine:

Sort of like Scott's twin RL-P18 monsters, only not quite as big.

Aw, thanks!

Whoa! Bradley! Haven't seen you around in ages... How's it going? Any upgrades we haven't heard about?

Bradley's definitely deserve to be on here. Not only are they awesome but his build is a great one to watch out for if you are looking to put that big ol' 18 in a big, vented box sub ('box' as in not sonotube based) but don't quite want to take up the floorspace that mine consume.

Hey, Scott. Yeah, I'm still around. I'm going through what can only be described as "1080p projector madness" right now. The subs are still serving me very well and frightening my guests on a regular basis. I just fixed all the broken links for the pictures in my build thread, though, so I figured it was worth adding to the list. I think if I had to do over again, I might do smaller cabinets with passive radiators, though. It's a DISEASE, I tell ya. A disease!

the idea of "post mortem" analysis is a great idea. hopefully folks will run with that...i.e., a section somewhere that talks about mistakes made, lessons learned, "what i would do differently if i had to do it over again", etc.

That's a great idea, actually!

I briefly brought that up (to an extent) with SteveNN in a PM. It's the main reason I like to write so much about a project after it's finished to best represent the actual performance to be had. Most people just stop updating their thread once they are done. Maybe just a couple sentences about how great their new stuff sounds. Of course it sounds great, it's new and better than what you just had. Lolz! Hahaha.

I never did think about things I'd do differently when I finished my twins. Just that I wanted a 2nd pair. Hahaha! I wanted MOAR!

On that note, when it comes time to start a build thread on the quad sealed setup soon, I will update and possibly add a "closer" to my twins build thread for anyone else that may still actually read that thing. Actually, I really need to update and clean up that thread anyway. Add some new REW graphs....all that. Heheh.

nice grillwork! builds like this deserve some special indicator in the master list, perhaps a flag for aesthetic vs. black box along with all the more traditional cuts (sealed, ported, size, power, etc.) added!

I built a couple a long time ago with Power Ports and TC2000s. Not 18" but they work very well. If you want to add them....

Hey guys, I am looking at building a couple subs that would be very similar to the HSU MBMs. Has anybody done this before? I am wanting to use 12" drivers with plate amps and I would want to cross them over between 50hz and 150hz. I have no experience building subs so I would need as much detail as humanly possible. Thanks.

also, I would want them downfiring if possible.

stepyourgameup,

first, there are some folks who have built mbm clones for various reasons. search around a little more and you will find some discussions.

second, after doing that, you might want to start a new thread. this thread is mostly just a collection of completed projects and doesn't really have many people following it, so you probably won't get a lot of replies here.

i see that you have already started a thread on the mbm. i'll give that discussion a bump for you.

I am waiting for a few finishing touches and testing of the cabs before I submit my system. Soon, hopefully.

Thanks,

if there is ever a carve-out for hall of fame subwoofers, yours go in. post or pm to me when you want them added to the list!

Here is a quite nice subwoofer build from a Finnish guy "Drakmin": http://metku.net/index.html?path=mod...ofer/index_eng

Not a big dB-monster but a very nice looking and well sounding sub... I got the idea for the look of my new subs(ongoing project) from his build.

thanks. this is one of the best looking builds that we have seen. the leather wrapping, while not novel, is certainly not common. very, very, nice! added.

LTDO2, I made a thread here, http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...0#post16508390 , can you add "Usul: 4 x AE-IB15 line array IB sub; Mike R HT " to your DIY subwoofer projects?

Thx.
