Another Modified VBSS build

First off let me say, I did not copy smcmillian2's build. This is purely an coincidence.
So this is last weekends project. Was hoping to build both Saturday and Sunday and finish them during the week...that didn't work out. Started off as the PA360 VBSS nearfield to go beside the MLP, but turned out too big for my taste. So they are being moved to MBM duty and corner loaded. Only one I finished. Hopefully I can get started on the second one in a couple days. Hats off to Chad Smith for the advise on the design. This is my first post on this forum, not sure how to caption the pics. The series of pics of the top are the different colors used to paint it. I used DuPont automotive paint fof the top, MinWax for the cabinet.

Turned out really good, nice job. The paint work on the top is impressive. I wish I had the patience and skill to do that.

Man that looks nice. Really nice work. Can you elaborate on the wood/finish/trim work that you did? Thanks.

inspired and inspiring effort and results . .

.02 looks like birch in the stained portions

and the top is formica?

but IF? you did the "marbleing' /granitizing" "painting" on the the top, _

WOW! I've seen that done and it can be a true work of art . .

I'd love to see something like that done in a basic ruby red with bits of gold, aquamarine, deep green , some black, gold and silver threads . .

how does it play?

The whole thing looks great, but Especially the top. Nice!


So it's ported right? What is it tuned to? Did you need to do any DSP?

It doesnt actually take that long. About 4 hours from start to finish. Just a plastic bag.

I used 3/4" Sande ply from Home Depot. I basically just built a regular enclosure, then ripped some plywood and trimmed the edges with cherry veneer to make the trim pieces on the edges. The satin is MinWax, dont remember the color. The finish on the cabinet is MinWax satin Polly urethane that I sprayed on at work. The top is just MDF painted to loom like granite. I used DuPont automotive paint, Base Coat / Clear Coat.

The plywood is Sande ply from Home Depot. Not sure exactly what that means. Was looking for a tight grain, not the results I wanted but oh well. The top is MDF that I painted with automotive paint. Just a plastic bag and a bunch of different colors. Glued the top on last night, havent heard it yet. going to watch Ironman or Deadpool tonight.

Yeah, they have the Sande plywood at my HD. I'm not sure what it is either but I've used it on a couple of shelving projects. At least it pretty's-up real well

Thanks. The port is fired out the side on the bottom. It is tuned to about 26Hz. I havent listened to it yet. Once I finish the other 3, I will setup the DSP on the iNuke.

looks great but you should remove the material covering the braces. Its blocking the air from the driver to the rest of the box and the port.

I think the next three I'll use Birch. I used Sande ply from Lowes and the grain was much tighter. This stuff looks more like Oak to me.

I posted that question last night in my local group. I was wold air will pass through that material easily enough not to worry about it. The next one I will run some tests on without the top to see how it acts. If is flaps around violently, ill just wrap each brace.

Great build @tarponater ! Love how you made it a piece to fit within your decor.

What method did you use for the top, if you don't mind sharing? That turned out exquisitely.

Start by painting a solid color. Then start tinting that color in many directions, darker, lighter, more blue, more green, so on. All you do is apply each color with a crumpled up plastic shopping bag, just keep dabbing on color till you get what you like. Clear, sand smooth and clear again.

That small piece on the bottom left is the port top. After I finished it, I cut the opening out with a router and a flush cutting bit, then rounded the opening. You can see how the right end of that panel is rounded.

Good info, thanks. May have to try that on an upcoming project (although I typically loathe painting... )

So this is last weekends project. Was hoping to build both Saturday and Sunday and finish them during the week...that didn't work out. Started off as the PA360 VBSS nearfield to go beside the MLP, but turned out too big for my taste. So they are being moved to MBM duty and corner loaded. Only one I finished. Hopefully I can get started on the second one in a couple days. Hats off to Chad Smith for the advise on the design. This is my first post on this forum, not sure how to caption the pics. The series of pics of the top are the different colors used to paint it. I used DuPont automotive paint fof the top, MinWax for the cabinet.
FWIW looks excellent. Nice job.

This is the second of the two. I had to let the top dry a couple days before I could glue it on. Tomorrow I should be able to listen to them.

Excellent job, I love the builds that are made to look like furniture/blend in with the existing decor of a non-dedicated theater space. (the first pic looks eerily familiar... )

That is crazy, I swear I didn't copy yours, we posted our builds the same day. I listened to the first one over the weekend. Should be able to fire up the second tomorrow.
