Ive decided to take the plunge and build my own sub. I was able to sell off my Earthquake MKV-12 and have enough funds to purchase the sub, wood and tools needed
Im going to be using the IXL 18 meets the "Easy Button"
as a general guide for my build.
The sub being used is the IXL-18 Mk2
. I know its not the same sub but I figured its close enough and I can make it work.
The box will made with a high quality 3/4" plywood - dimensions should end up being 24 3/4" H&D by 48" L and im hoping to have about a 400L box.
All the wood/tools have been purchased and the sub is shipping out Jan 2nd.
I bought an EPX2800 amp as a impulse buy a few weeks ago so ill be using that to power the sub (it will be more than enough). The amp has RCA inputs and banana plug connectors to keep things simple.
Minidsp and UMIK-1 will be used for calibration and EQ.
Ive done some playing around in WINISD and im having a hard time deciding how im going to tune the box. ANY AND ALL SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME (im a noob).
Here are some screenshots of the box tuned to ~13.5hz with a HP of 15hz @ 800W (Do i really need it that low if all i can get is ~97db @ 10hz??)
box tuned to ~17hz with a HP of 16.3hz @ 800W
Im open to other suggestions - but i cant change box dimensions, sub or amp. Just have to make the best with what i currently have.
