Bye Bye Tubatrons! Welcome home to the last 4 SI 18ht's I have to pop into these two new sealed D.O. boxes smile.gif



New endcaps are just sitting there for now, Gonna get a few more to cut and glue together before I pop it on and then start work on the other side routing out the 15" baffle to the new 18" baffle biggrin.gif

Gear mentioned in this thread:

Jigsaw and a sharpie, haha. Took the endcap cutout to trace around the tube and then went vewy vewy slowly biggrin.gif

It helps that I already have half the enclosure to start with smile.gif Endcaps will be mounted tonight so I can focus on the other side tomorrow night and paint the new baffles. Should be up and running this weekend if all goes well biggrin.gif I am way too ready for 8 18's going.

I know, I almost cried basically destroying one of the best and cheapest builds I have done so far. they were taking up space, and I don't want to waste any more time on getting all them in wink.gif

Oh and mike, I am quick, yes, but I don't have a wife or children, and I contemplate my entire agenda all day in my head. Work and play are included in that smile.gif

EDIT: Sorry Marty, if you are reading....

These would be wired for 2 Ohm stereo, correct ? They would be in a 11X14X8 room, thanks guys,

Absolutely - this would work well. I've used the INuke DSP 3000 with a pair of captivators at 2ohm and they sounded great. These drivers take less power and would also work fine on the INuke.

Caps installed biggrin.gif just letting the PL sit overnight so I can route the other side and paint tomorrow!!!

whats the volume and how big are the ports on those sonotubes? what are they tuned to? please give some dimensions, inquiring mind want to know.........................biggrin.gif
post #1394 of 2212
On the old LLT's? or the new sealed Dual opposed? There wont be a port now that they are chopped down.
post #1395 of 2212
Here is a LLT vs a dual opposed sealed.

post #1396 of 2212
Of course the sealed costs twice as much with dual drivers.
post #1397 of 2212
Well, my two D4s arrived today. I plan on sealed, but other than that I'm not sure exactly how I'm going to build these yet. I'm pretty sure I'll go with sonotubes just for the ease. They'll be sitting behind an acoustically transparent screen so looks won't matter, and the wife says "whatever's cheapest." I was kind of thinking of horizontal placement so you could still see the drivers, but would either vertical (down-firing) or horizontal have any particular benefits?

I was figuring somewhere from 4 to 4.25 cubic feet. Any news on this from those who have built with them? Also, I plan to get an EP4000, iNuke3000, or similar. Whatever I can get the best deal on.

FYI, the room isn't built yet, but it should end up being no more than about 1850 cubic feet.

Thanks for any help. I'm looking forward to playing with these things. tongue.gif

I'll be running 8 of these from a Cerwin Vega CV 5000 amp and I'm going to have an electrician come over sometime soon.

Will a dedicated 20 amp line be plenty?

For just one amp, yes. If the cost isn't much more (wire is a little more expensive), you might look into a 30 amp fuse with 10 gauge wire. I went that route as I prefer overkill. smile.gif

Hmm, not a bad idea, who knows what I may want to do in the future.
post #1401 of 2212
Crappy pics, but you get the idea. Here's the SI15 I just finished up for a friend of mine. These small cabs are cake to build after messing with my monstrosities, lol.

Nice, BA! What are you using for power? I'm trying to talk a friend of mine into a very similar build, although might go ported. smile.gif

Funny you say that, as that's where his wife was headed. He bought a house a few months back and I convinced him he needed to upgrade a little. smile.gif

He finally conceded to a simple setup so I snagged him an AX200u, some inwalls, and built him a 120" screen. His wife wouldn't let me build a sub as she didn't want something obnoxiously loud or large.

Well she called me around Christmas from Best Buy, asking which sub she should finally give in and get him. Funny it just happened to line up with the pre order on the SI's. biggrin.gif

Single EP1500. It will be running in 4 ohm bridged mode, so there will be plenty of power there. Volume is 2.65 cf, and even with 800 watts there is no chance of over excursion (he is the set it and forget about it type). So needless to say it should be idiot proof.

I initially wanted to go ported, but was trying to stay with her wishes of keeping to the smallest overall footprint (both height, width, and depth), so I chose to sacrifice some output and go sealed. He's not one who really cranks his movies and just wanted something to blend in with the rest of the speakers while giving a little bit of bump, so I figured this would be perfect.
