Assuming you just have a normal sub precut like my pioneer receiver you will just need this cable.

I started cutting out the pieces for my first martycube. Couldn't finish because I actually have to do some teaching. Damn students mad.gifsmile.gif

I will start a seperate build thread and include some of it in the first post here.

The question today is how much is the martycube flatpack going to weigh ?

I brought my scale and will let you know later.

How about some guesses and see who gets the closest ? 45lbs,50... 55 ???biggrin.gif
post #183 of 2456

67lbs

post #184 of 2456
I guarantee you I could guess the closest smile.gif

Actually now that I think about it we are using different wood.

Mine is coming along nicely - only one hiccup last night (cut a board too short... Damn!)... Everything is cut minus the 1x1's to brace the box as I will just do that when the time comes.

Chaluga, are you still using Birch? If your are, then I would say 60 lbs. BTW, is there any chance you can specifically identify exactly which Birch Ply you are using and which store you bought it from? I am in the Toronto/GTA area and if it's at any of the Stores I have access to I can pick up the same product. Unless, of course, MDF is the better choice.

thanks

Birch ply from rona. Plywood is easier to work with and cheaper here. Accepts nails and screws better.

Thanks very much Chaluga, I will be visiting Rona either tonight or tomorrow. Is there a specific product number I should be looking for?

thanks

60 lbs sounds like a great guess. i'll take the "under" on that...59. :-)

In BC here they only carry one model of 3/4" by 4' by 8' . The piece is exactly 48" wide so I had to make some small changes to my sizes of the sub (1/8"). If someone is using a 4 by 8 sheet that is 49" wide they will be fine.

Hey, didn't you think the bigger 9cuft Mini Marty was going to be 85lbs?? wink.gifwink.gifbiggrin.gif


Did you decide to not do the 9 cubic footer?

The smaller ported Cube is pretty much identical to the ported model I was working on for some of the 15" drivers. LTD02 helped figure the volume needed for them last year, but we never discussed dropping an 18" inside of it.

So, in view of the now finalized cube (2x2x2), are you able to offer a flat pack for this little beast?
post #204 of 2456
I was hoping the Cube would come in under 70lbs with plywood. Once you go over 70, you might as well break the kit into 2 packages because 2 smaller ones will cost the same as one that weighs over the 70lb mark. I'd figure a good 5lbs for packaging material for each of the 2 boxes. Ideally you can get all the big pieces in one box and be around 50lbs, then put the smaller ones in their own box. But finding a perfect shipping box might not be so easy.

If you need any pointers for packaging........I'll hook you up! biggrin.gif

The fact that I am not the guru of packaging like u means one box. You.should see me with xmas presents. Also I have to drive these across the border for some people and ship from usa side. Can't tape box completely , they want to look in at the border. I will give a ballpark figure for shipping but the final amount will be per person . I might be asking you some questions.

I was trying to prompt Erich into making flat packs available for the long term since you (as I understand it) will only be doing them for a limited time. I really think the cube will be very popular for a long time due to its WAF friendly size and the performance it offers. I might order a couple flat packs from you since I just found out Rona Ontario does not carry the Birch Ply you found in BC. I have a call out to a couple of places. Once I find out, I will let you know either way.

I see myself making marty flatpacks till the end of the school year ( end of June) or till erich makes them way cheaper and puts me out of business cool.gif

If I make six or 16 doesn't matter. I just need six to make my front speakers and everything after that is gravy.

I wish there was a way to let you use my FedEx shipping account to get lower rates. But when I asked about a year ago to help someone else out, I was told that I'd be liable for any damages or anything like that. And with these being bigger boxes, that might be an issue.

Not sure what shipping company you plan on using, but that 70lb figure is the magic weight for FedEx. Once you go over the shippers weight ceiling, rates jump very fast and it does end up being cheaper or the same price to ship in 2 smaller packages. Plus it would be safer. 75+lb packages get rolled and flipped a lot versus picking them up. And if they are picked up, most won't be sitting them down lightly, they just drop them.

I've been lucky to have no damages on those big boys, and some people send me photos of the package when it arrives.....looks like it went through a war zone. But they still made it okay. The secret is pallet protectors on the corners and foam! biggrin.gif

I can convert the ported 15's over to an 18" model with a little work if there is demand. But I don't want to steal Mr. Chalugadp's thunder right now.
