Bunker Buster build

Each ordnance will be armed with an HS24, manufactured by Stereo Integrity.

Many thanks to ChopShop1 for selling me a pair of HS24s at a price I could afford.

Many thanks to MJAudio for alerting me to their availability and for conveying his excitement for the sound quality and output of this product. He has heard a lot of subs, so his enthusiasm for these drivers spoke volumes for their quality.

Many thanks also, to mtg90 and LTD02 for guidance regarding the advisability of using grills with this much air movement as well as the effectiveness of pillows for controlling standing waves inside the cabinets, should the dimensional challenges produce them.

Enjoy the show.

YA finally another gorgeous cabinet design build. Sorry but I have to ask what is that dual 6.5 or other next to the triple ten?

I almost thought about buying a single 24" from Chop because of the price but just have too many things on my plate.

Now you're talkin'! I have to say, I do enjoy reading your threads immensely. The detail, finishing techniques, like others have said, I learn something every time. What is your current topcoat? I know the target coatings stuff didn't pan out well, are you still using poly?

I really like my SEOS, you will like having that much more clean output on demand, esp after finishing these subs.

I tried my hand at 2-pack Poly for a snowboard I refinished, and while horribly life-threatening (unless proper PPE is worn), it is amazing stuff. The guy who recommended 2-pak said the flexibility and UV stability is second to none for that application, and he sells resins:

www.c3dindustries.com

I wonder if his H2O/UV Clear coat would be any good for speakers? I plan to use Resin-X for some vacuum bagging and surfboard projects in the future.

Anyone honest enough to say "my product won't work for your project, but try this", gets an 'A' in my book.

I intend to do a 15 cubic foot sealed build for these (x 2).
I haven't yet decided on the veneer. The finish will likely be a gloss water based gymnasium floor poly that I ordered recently and haven't tried yet. I'll give more details on it later.

Max--glad to see you're still around! Thank you very much for the kind words.
The Target Coatings product is fine if I either keep the same color on the entire enclosure or use a barrier coat to prevent color bleed between differently tinted areas. I still have some, but I haven't gotten around to using it again yet.

So far, my one attempt at a lacquer finish was disappointing. It flashed quickly, but takes months to fully harden, according to the info I read online--at least with the rattle can stuff I experimented with. I may try again someday, but while I was stripping it off, I swore I'd never use it again.

You are a great source for information, Max. I'll have to try some of the things you have recommended, though I may avoid the Death-Defying finishes until I get a full Bio-Hazard suit.

Which SEOS build did you do, Max? I need photos!

You refinished a Snowboard? I need photos of that, too!

Resin X is fast! I haven't tried it, but I think I will. Not sure when, yet.

It will be interesting to learn how much difference the extra internal space makes in performance.

Certainly subbed here. Looking forward to the progress I finished my most recent build with Lacquer and got a pretty killer finish to it. Applied with foam brushes, sanded out to 12,000 grit, finish waxed Turned out pretty nice The lacquer did take a week of cure time before I began buffing out, but I feel like 5 days would have been long enough.

Speaking of Beasts--Thanks for the lacquer feedback, guy. I guess my trouble was limited to the rattle cans I used (sorry folks, but I don't remember the brand).

No prob! My finishing skills are getting there, but I am straight JV compared to what you manage to come up with I used the watco gloss lacquer. Took around 8 coats or so, but once buffed out, I am happy with this effort. Check out my Undertaker build and let me know what you think! I would love the feedback

PI, I used a commercial lacquer called magna max by ML Campbell and had great success. I needed a convenient finish for something and found a rat can of deft lacquer on sale so picked it up for this simple task. Well, it was like driving a Ferrari and then renting a minivan. Was terrible by comparison. Thankfully it did the little task I needed done, but never for a speaker would I use a rat can after that.
