4 martys? Some people here have that as a bathroom system to assist with bowel movements.

You do realize that many subs will have an in room response of 150db+ at 10hz and will crush your cranium?

They have pretty much the same footprint, so you must have really low ceilings in your room.

I don't think they would fit my wife's ideal sub size.(which are invisible subs)
I've been lucky enough to get two 18" sealed subs by her.She wouldn't even notice Marty Cubes.Since they're the same size as my sealed subs.

Remove the stove and replace it with an easy bake oven. She'll get it then.

A buddy's wife wanted a new clothes dryer for Christmas, so he got her a clothesline kit. Within a week she had a real dryer...and he had his subwoofer.

LMAO!!! Or depending on your situation a divorce. Either way, win win. You’ll still get your subwoofers eventually. Lol

Right the GSG ones measure slightly smaller.

All of the originals were the same depth, so Im wondering if the new GSG ones will all be the same depth.

4 that is all? Just remember there are guys like BTH that are running 100k watts and 29 subs. You are just not trying wit only 4 and 6k watts.

this just in. . .

for wanna be DIYers / AIYers

the "beauty" of only the best analysis and engineering of materials and subwoofer cab dynamics

don't let the simplicity of assembly fool you -i know you've watched that video.

that cabinet is braced to be rock solid -inert- vibration free - adds no coloration-

and
you will definitely get to keep all your fingers intact . .

That cutaway view of the cab is awesome. Lots of work went in to that. I wish these had been available earlier this year. I think it's a great idea and there's a market for this. It's not just the guys without tools looking for the best bang-for-the-buck, it's guys like me that have all the tools but would rather buy flatpacks (and *still* end up with the best bang-for-the-buck).

I’m really tempted to spend the money on the SawStop Job Site model. My table saw and my router always have me a little on edge. Probably doesn’t help that work in the safety field and have had to investigate accidents in the past.

consider a different and perhaps more practical perspective . . . .

Tally up the costs and the (total) time lost for an emergency room visit . . .

you can't get there by yourself . . .

to say nothing about the cost and the time and the scheduling hassles for follow up medical attention . .

(a bandaid didn't cut it)

We all have budgets. . .

In Summary: this flat pack > Over The Top ROI!

Hey All!
A couple of us in Iowa are going to split a 4 pack, and we have 1 cabinet left that would need a owner.
Anyone in Iowa or the surrounding states want the 4th cabinet?
I would be willing to drive an hour or two to meet anyone who would want it.


Thanks!
