No real reason to build one other than it looked like a fun project. Thanks
My buddy wants a couple of VBSS end table variants built. But I think this is a better design. The plan was to built one and see if it would work for him. Just need to finish up the bracing, rear hatch and load a driver.
Mistakes or things i would do better.
1) the front and baffle assemble got spun around and i punched a number of pocket holes on what is the front. Ugh. I don't think these will fill well??
2) Cut larger front chamber rails and notch them so they sit flush to the front
3) Use baltic birch and mitre corners.
I have a Mach Audio IXL-18 not being used, i am thinking of jamming it in and taking some measurements. Or is this a total mismatch and not worth the time? PA460 was the originally intended driver.
The trim is super easy and makes there be alot less sanding and filling plus gives it's a furniture looking touch. I actually ran screws in on the sides but wasnt worried because of the trim. I say go for it

Not to be rude my friend but:
No real reason other than it looked like a fun project? That doesn't even make sense you silly goose. You seem to forget, it produces bass. Now trust me, people here, we love LOOKING at subs. I mean, I like the La Voce 21 inch because it's an "affordable" 21 inch sub that you can keep buying more and more of. But let's not pretend that these don't produce bass.
Unless of course, I have misunderstood you, and maybe you truly do just like to look at the subwoofer. And I won't judge you. We love subs. If you keep thinking of doing these fun projects every couple of months, you may really enjoy the outcome. Especially if you turn them on and don't just look at them. I'm not saying it has to be a monthly fun project (I'm not saying it doesn't, if you have to have fun once a month go ahead!) but don't stop having fun projects ok?
Lol. No offence taken. I have the bug bad as well. Eventually i will assemble a 2.1 system upstairs for music and this will be likely used there. I have 3 other enclosures not being used already (1 LLT/EBS, 2 plus sized VBSS variants). My theatre still puts a grin on my face when i crank up the music and movies. Although, judging from others on here, at some point an upgrade will happen.
