DIY Martycube and Behringer NX3000D DSP

Hey everybody,

I've been following posts on AVS for a while. Great advises here and tips too. I joined yesterday

So I have a question. I had Klipsch Sub 10 as my main subwoofer. It was decent for money. The amp died and instead of replacing the amp with Bash or Dayton I decided to build a MartyCube. I ll be using Dayton UM15-22 with Behringer NX3000D DSP amp. Budget is around $500, +/- $50. I was going to buy SVS PB1000 but read all the great things about Marty Subs.

1) Can I use the NX3000D to power my Sub-10 to bring it back to life as 2nd sub. I was thinking I can leave everything as is, drill a hole back of box and install a Speakon connector and connect to driver. What do you guys think? Is this doable? or is the amp going to damage the driver?

2) How hard is to program NX3000D to UM15-22 using a computer to prevent over excurtion? I know I can build the box I have all the tools. Not to tech savy though

Thanks

I tried this with a Velodyne Passive sub because I didn’t want to pay $1000 for a Velodyne sub amp. It didn’t work. I think manufacturers design their subwoofer drivers to pair with their sub amps exclusively. That was my take-away anyhow.

That probably had more to do with it being a servo sub. Hooking up to leads from positive to negative to the Klipsch should give it power.

Nevertheless I wouldn’t use the Klipsch in combination with the Marty sub though, it’ll just bring the overall sound quality down and will hinder the Marty’s performance.

1. You'll need to plan on spending at least $550 to make your plan work. Realistically, $600-$650. The UM15 is $225, plus $330 for the NX3000D. Add in the cost of speakons, wiring, connectors, etc. you'll be well over $550, but you can use the $50 promo. You'll still need to factor in the cost of a sheet of MDF, fasteners and adhesive. And this is assuming you don't finish the cabinet with paint or duratex.


2. As of right now, you cannot download the DSP tuning software from Behringer, so you'll have to manually tune it through the control panel on the amp.

@ Craig S King: Understood. You are right It ll go atleast $600-700. I m sorry I initially had NX1000D in mind which is $250 but figured I start with 3000D for future possibility of 2nd MartyCube.

I did go over the FAQ section on original Marty Subwoofer. I m confident about first part which is building and installing driver. I have never done any type of manual tuning to any audio equipment so little intimidated by that.

Is manual tuning pretty hard process using control panel for amp?
