In the past year I've been involved in the design of two things; satellites and a subwoofer. The satellites I helped a lot with, but the sub I was far more integral in the entire process. Both were in conjunction with EbenLee Audio
. The sub is called the ELA-3
. It's an acoustic suspension design that utilizes a 10" down-firing driver and 540 watt amp. That same design was then extended upwards to a model that uses a 15" driver and a 1000 watt amp, called the ELA-5
. There will eventually be an ELA-4 too, which will use a 12" driver and the same 540 watt amp as the ELA-3.
I have one of the ELA-3 final prototypes sitting in my living room at this very minute. That model is now in final production trim and shipping. The initial prototypes of the ELA-5 are just about to be built, so I'm trying to convince the owner of EbenLee -- Peter Selby -- to bring one of those beasts down do the GTG for an unveiling of sorts. Thus far the signs are encouraging, but he's in Ohio so it's not as easy a trip for him.
Based upon the initial projections it could weigh around 140-150 pounds, so it might take a few of us to get the thing inside the house, but I'm sure I can find enough able bodies to assist. Now all I have to do is convince Peter to commit and we're all set. If I'm not able to do that then I may bring one down myself, but Peter is definitely the better man for the job.
