Hey everyone, I created a thread a few months ago looking for some help and it kinda died out.
I have an RF-83 system currently without a sub. I was looking at greeting a PB-13 ultra and when checking it out on the forums people were saying that for that price point I midaswell build my own.
In the original thread I got a recommendation of using a UXL-18 (from beast, who I'm sure will chime in
). They are currently out of stock. Do you think I should wait for them to get back in stock of do you think there's a better option?
The room it will be going in is 19ftx14ftx9ft.
The space I have for the sub is 30in deep x 30inch wide x any height. The width could go as wide as 40 inches. I'm hoping to get something around 2ftx2ftx2ft.
I'm planning on building the enclosure out of mdf and veneering it. I plan on flush mounting the speaker. I would assume I'm going to need to use 1 inch mdf. 1" mdf is a bit difficult to find, so am I better off gluing 2 1/2 mdf sheets (I've heard gluing 1/4" and 3/4", is there a difference)? Also, for the inner piece of the flush mount (basically the part the sub will actually mount to), should I cut the hole out and leave the rest of the mdf so it would be like an entire second layer on the front, or is it ok to just cut it into a 3-4 inch thick ring and gluing it up (not sure how much sense this makes)?
Last question, what do you guys recommend doing for the bottom/feet?
