Hi guys !
This will be my first buil-post in this forum.
I've chosen a nice Dayton Ultimax 15" subwoofer, which I got from PE.
I needed a box for it, but did not want to go with MDF, so came the idea to make it from hardwood, which is available where I'm from (South-America).
I read about the pros and cons of using solid wood, and will explain these also.
I am using a Behringer iNuke NU3000DSP amplifier to feed this puppy.
The Ultimax driver will be mounted in the rear of the baffle, and I am using 2x 4" "dimpled" Precision Ports.
Size: W52cm, H68cm, D75cm.
Internal volume: 262 liters / 9.25 cu ft.
Wall thickness: 22mm
Baffle thickness: 42mm
Corner bracing: 4x4cm
Do let me know your opinion and/or experience on the use of this particular subwoofer driver and the use of solid wood for the enclosure.
(more info about the build progress will be added in a few)
