My driver builder knows a painter so he's going to drop some 18" and 24" dustcaps to be painted chrome along with the clamping pieces that go around the 24. So hopefully we'll have some pictures of a chrome accessorized driver soon.
Wow that looks great. I like it off the floor a bit. Very elegant and makes the sub look more expensive too! If you screw in the feet with the sub on it’s side, is it then safe to tip it upright without damaging the feet?

No, I don’t think you could tip the sub upright as the legs would probably break. Don’t know for sure as I didn’t try but I wouldn’t trust it. What we did is stack some wood underneath so the sub was 9” off the floor in the same orientation and then installed the feet. Then two of us just lifted the sub and placed it in its final resting place near the wall. We were then able to “skate” it into final position.

Okay that makes sense. I was thinking of using an automotive floor jack. You could roll it around too if you’re careful. I assume you could always swap out the legs for another style if you wanted to. I like the option to customize

You are better off buying large furniture sliders that can slide around. Once you decide the final spot just remove one slider out at a time. If you do swap the legs in future just have someone help you lift and flip and lay on its side and then change feet and then lift and flip back. Like David said....I wouldn't flip the sub on its feet as it can break the thread inserts.

There are threaded inserts in the bottom for standard 5/16-18 threads so as long as the replacement feet had the same screw threads, they’d swap out no problem.

And this is similar to what we used to move the sub around with, again we stacked wood up to get us to 9” so we could easily screw the feet on. Lifting was easy since we just rolled in front of where we wanted to move the sub and then picked up the sub briefly and set it down in place. Easy and no having to twist the enclosure from horizontal to vertical.

The customer was researching and considering a fall purchase. But I knew if I didn’t test with the feet at the time, it wouldn’t get done in a timely fashion. But we learned that tall feet will work as long as they are leveled to the floor. And if we want the cone silver, it will need to be painted.

I just think it's funny that a 24" sub isn't attention grabbing enough and he needs crome on it. I would think a 24" sub would hit you in the face when you walked in the room. You don't see that every day - most people think an 18" is a huge sub.

One of the posters wanted a chrome finish since he had a specific look in mind. For some reason I thought it was already in the works on being built. Looks like its just speculation at this point. and if David can do what the poster wanted....which he said he can. Now the Poster needs to go forward! Cause I wanna see it!

When we were exhibiting the side table version of the Mariana 24 a few years ago at THE Newport Show in LA, there were more than a couple attendees that came in the room, made a disgusted face, and left. It could have been the TV but more than likely it was the 24 that didn’t fit with their audiophile sensibilities. Of course, I’d put my 24 against any 12” sub in an even test of accurate, articulate, and tight bass but some people have their mind made up that a big sub can’t be quick. Physics says a 75lb motor-magnet doesn’t have a problem moving a 1.5lb cone.

If you saw the eclectic and flashy vibe at my place you might understand why I prefer the sub to have some shine on it too. Hitting someone in the face with a 24” sub isn’t enough for me. I want jaws dropped and bowels loosened. Figuratively of course.

That being said, I will push forward on this thing when the moment is right. Unfortunately Trump screwed us transportation workers pretty hard with his new tax laws. Usually we get to write off a ton of traveling expenses but these standard deductions are a b*tch. Went from an $8-10k return to owing $3k. That cost you a sale, Dave. F*ck it. It’s only money and I can always make more. I drive freight trains for a living so I’d like to think I’ve personally moved some DSS subs at some point. Maybe I will be hauling my own soon enough. Or maybe it stays on the truck the whole way?

David is building me a couple of subs that I am picking up in early August. I figure I can put "Buckeyes rule!!!" on one and "UT Sucks" on the other.

Is that wrong????

The subs ship to you via freight truck but I’m sure some of the parts, while assembled in the US (enclosures, amps, drivers), the parts came from around the world and I’m sure some traveled by ship and by train. So thanks for helping transport some of our components. I’m ready to send you the fully assembled sub whenever you’re ready. The test sub is still in the same place with the feet and we play it periodically so no rush.

That is absolutely wrong, first by defacing the beautiful subs and secondly by knocking my alma mater. But as long as you cover up the foul wording when I visit, you may do what you want with them. Not sure how such defacing will affect the warranty though.

If you consider that foul wording then I’m thoroughly embarrassed for my language earlier. Please excuse me.

Doth taketh David too seriously. We are friends and have met each other in person multiple times. It was all in good fun. Your language was fine. We are meeting up in person in August to do some exchanges and hopefully enjoy a good meal together. You don't need me to tell you, but David is good people

I’m pretty sure “UT Sucks” is much, much worse than what you wrote but I think I’m biased.

What subs are you going with??

Dual 18 singles. I had JTS s2 subs in my current basement set-up that was an open space on concrete and it was more than I ever needed. I am moving to a new house with an enclosed 18 by 14 room above a garage with wood floors. I will have triple JBL M2s up front that create plenty of bass in their own right, the Deep Sea subs will be icing (very nice icing ) on the cake.
