This conversation has gone way over my head. I need to start somewhere, that is spelled out for me.
Then I may graduate to more advance concepts. The above idea also means, I get a good amp (I think) that if I don't like the subs, I can at least reuse part of the system.
This, or I may have to just go buy a couple of subs from Emo, Ryhtmik, ED....
Doesn't get much simpler as far as box building than a cube.
- Build four 19" cubes with a single brace in the middle on each wall and double-up the front baffle thickness using 3/4" wood/MDF.
- Cut a stepped hole in the baffle if you want to flush mount the woofer.
- Prime the enclosure with most any type of primer, then paint with your choice of colors (most choose flat black for HT applications).
- Stuff the enclosure with a polyester pillow or two (cheapies from Walmart work).
- Mount binding posts in the back of the box and wire the sub to them internally.
Place the four boxes in your room - try one in each front corner of the room, then one in the middle of a side wall, and the fourth somewhere near the listening position (behind maybe). Hooking up to the EP2500 is a bit more complicated, but many here can help you when you get to that point.
Don't worry, it isn't rocket science. Just make sure to connect red/+/positive to the correct spot and the same for black/-/negative.
If you choose to do DIY, start a build thread on here and you'll get tons of help. People really love pictures so make sure to post them as you progress. Good luck!
