Busy evening: Installed the other two drivers to the other two cabs going behind the screen wall and tested them out. Results =
Here comes trouble! This is what will be behind my screen wall. In case you've not been following the build thread; the middle cab is ported on top (you can see the port), right cab is ported to the right, left cab to the left. All the cabs are on dollies in this pic but they won't be in situ.
I couldn't fire up all three together as I've only got two amp channels in the garage to play with, but just two, with only about 500w each were enough to rattle every damn thing in the garage including both doors. As the floor is concrete there wasn't much vibration to be felt but I could hear the "vibrato" in my voice when I spoke. So cool.
Here we have cab #4
, the "pretty cab" that will be out in the room. Still don't know how integrating this one cab that will be in the back, left corner of the room will work out, but I'm going to find out.
I like this pic. I know there's no Duratex in the corners but that's about 5" down from the top and in a dark room, nobody's going to see it anyway. At least it's black.
Texture. Finish was wet in this pic. I will let it cure for at least the next 10 days before moving it. This cab has 3 coats of flat black primer and 3 coats of Duratex...a little less than half a gallon. Overkill to the nth degree.
In a few days I'll install the driver in this final cab and test it out. Then it's carpet time for the HT. I'll be hiring that out. Carpet and drywall mudding are two things I can't do.
