Finally finished... It's been a very long and tiring journey but persevering has always been a strong suite of mine After almost two months, here they are in their full glory. This is not their final placement, I only placed them like this for photos. Two up front and two at the back of the room will be their final placements. Thank you for following me on this journey and liking my posts. Also thanks for your feedback and tips. I am ever so grateful.

Looks good up front, now build 4 more for the back.

Nicely finished build, looks like all the time and effort paid off.

thank you..so I have actually used both and I find the miniDSP to be much more flexible and better quality. I think it's the favourite kid on the block when it comes to manually EQ'ing subs


Here are couple more I took last night.. These will probably be the last pics I will upload

Yes. I'm also having both behringer DSP & minidsp 2x4 non hd. I just think the difference is the 20hz Vs 10hz. But I saw some video on unlocking the 20hz below on YouTube & some thread in AVS(thank you for all the contribution for myself to grow & understand)

Do you have pictures from MLP for me to drool more

If you have a measuring mic, can you post some results, even if they are eq-ed ?
I'm planing on making two of those (can't fit more, but 2 should be enough).

They look amazing! Love the hard work you put into them. I bet some might thing they are bought instead of DIY.

Thank you so much for your kind words. This graph is a result of all 4 of my subs integrated into my system with delay and EQ applied

No I don't think I need to do that work around because I have the miniDSP 2x4HD in the chain.

Hi mkohman!
can you try to describe the difference in „sound“ between the Minimarty and the seald UM‘s?
I am in the same boat like you back than, have 4 Minimartys and 2 Martycubes and think to go all sealed; in my room it always sound ,don’t want to say boomy but never clean and tight .My room is a basement all concrete walls at about 4,8/7/2,25m.
