@hd0823 did you rip down full sheets?

Stormbreaker (For Sale) | Wisconsin Home Theater Meet Thread
You can always turn it down, but you can only turn it up so much (before you run out of power, excursion or structural integrity).

This is what I’m thinking might be the best way to do it. Only cost is a sheet of MDF.

I was going to make some extra cuts and run the circular saw across the sheet using my 48" straight edge. The side panels will require a longer straight edge. One of the local stores has 72" straight edge for $12, I am planning on going that route.

That’s a good idea. I actually started down that route but couldn’t locate anything that I trusted to be straight enough. The MDF fence I posted above should cut nicely hopefully. I’ll check while I am at Home Depot and see if there is anything like you posted above that I could use that’s even cheaper.

Would little finishing nails work? I have a ton of those lying around. The triple thick primer should not have a problem filling the little holes.

I’m building the rip guide I linked above. It’s currently glueing. After lunch I’m going to finish it off. I’ll let you know if it works out. Pretty easy to build

Going to be a fairly slow build process. Driver doesn’t come in until after the 28th now. Parts express keeps pushing back the expected in stock date. I’ll post some pictures of progress. Today is just getting all the parts cut.

Progress! This cut list is absolutely beast. Spent about 5 hours on cuts so far and what you see is how far I got. Crossed out lines mean that the cuts for both devastators have been completed. All major/big cuts are close to being complete. Tomorrow I will work on trying to finish all the bracing and ports. Next weekend will start with cutting out the window braces and putting the puzzle together!


Edit: don’t mind the dirty garage (minus the sawdust of course) that is the project I am suppose to be working on

Finished cutting!! All pieces cut and labeled. Still need to route the driver cutout and cut the front port rails with the jigsaw. Should be it though minus trying to put this beast together.

66 total pieces I believe. Enough for two BMDs. I have almost a sheet of plywood total left over. It’s all cut up but looking at it you may be able to build two from 7 sheets instead of 8. I’ll play with the cutlist and see later.

Absolutely! Going to try and see if the wife will let me keep the rythmik fv25hp to help boost the low end s little also. Should have enough chest thump to feel like Jean Claude Van Damm himself just dropped kicked you in your theater.

I will say I do worry integration will take a while. I don’t mind it but the wife really hates the frequency sweep sounds of REW lol. She says she has heard it wayyyy to much as I was teaching myself how to properly use it.

Yeah literally with the 2 devastors and 4 submaximus v3s it's down right crazy . Dont get me wrong it was crazy with th 4 v3s and 2 cyclops but adding the devastors pushed it to the brink of insanity. My rear bar shakes so violently back there that it feels like it's going to rip out of the floor. I even had to add seatbelts for the movies lol

Your system is just bonkers in a good way. It has to be similar to shoving 16 ported subs in a space lol.

Haha I did the exact same thing. I simply can’t imagine the amount of bass you have in your room. With the rythmik and the Marty I had previously I was just never satisfied with the amount of bass. Granted my room is very large and open floor plan to the rest of the house kills me a bit I need this level of fire power to equal what others can likely achieve with a pair of decent subs lol.

No kidding, I hope my next room is dedicated/smaller so I don’t need a million drivers to get the bass I desire. Previously, I’ve only hit 128dB at 30Hz and up and was compressing so hard below it I didn’t bother going further. I can’t imagine full bandwidth subs at 140dB!

I thought you meant your seats. It's a great idea: Add a 4 point harness to each seat and set up a little desk outside the theater area with a waiver for visitors to sign. Get those little signs they have before you board a roller coaster about heart attacks risks etc.

@hd0823 I’m curious what build pattern you went with? I’m reviewing the build guide on GSG but since theirs is a flat pack it seems I will need to follow a different pattern. What did you find as the easiest way to build these beasts? Also any lessons learned or avoidable issues?

Thanks for the information. I followed your build thread but wasn’t quite sure the build pattern. The lower and back port rails and port board seem like the trickiest piece. I do plan to use pocket holes also as that way I can speed up the build a bit.

Side not and I took a look at your build again and I absolutely love the framework. May have to copy that if you don’t mind we will see

Anyone ever use ebony stain? Any advice on brand and do you typically brush the pine with black tea to help the stain?

The lower and back are very easy did them as one piece each used pocket holes on both port rails . The trim pieces are very easy to do and make the box look so much more classy just took 3 in piece of the same plywood and pretty much made a window frame than bought 3/4 trim for the inside. It was super quick and hid any slight imperfections in the seams of the box. Any plywood ends I sanded up to 220 took spackling to the whole end and than sanded again with 220 left a super smooth surface

Did you use the 1 1/2” for the plywood pockets?

Now that you say something I see that it is trim pieces. I thought it was routed at first glance! Looks great. Since the plywood is not exactly 3/4” but instead like .688 did you have any issues matching the height of the trim?

I'll look tonight but I believe they where the 1.5 in . No if it stuck up at all I just took my orbital sander and matched it up but it was very close even with out doing that

hope you have a dolly or some strong friends to move them. When we built my four dual 18" ported boxes I didn't really think of how I would get them around and stack them...which is why I haven't stacked them yet. GL!
