N8DOGG for totally corrupting me and generously demoing his incredible system for me, and showing all the bass effects I was missing out on. No, wait... screw you N8!!!
Also, thanks for lending me your router. You're a life (or at least money) saver!
mrogowski for supplying incredible drivers at a reasonable price, and for taking the time to answer all my banal questions.
VViViD Vinyl Canada for a great product, and stellar
service. These guys know how to run a business.
The entire community for giving me loads to read, lots to think about, and for all the advice and tips and comparisons that got me to where I am without wasting time or money. You guys are awesome!
And so it begins!
I'm following Alice, and diving head-first into DIY for subwoofers. I've got wood (giggity), wire, an inuke 6000 DSP, and two UXL 18s. I'm going sealed, 3.5 cu ft each after bracing and driver. Between the amp, driver, and wire length I've calculated a damping factor of about 200, which is decent enough.
I've had most of the stuff for a while, but absolutely no time. I've sporadically tried the subs free-air, and I'm absolutely shocked how they grab the room by the balls under about 30 hz, even without a box!
Can't wait to get them done, but I'm looking forward to getting to do some woodworking again, also. So first day down, and I've got all my rough cuts done. Next will be cutting all my braces, then I can begin assembly.
