chalugadp,

Thanks for the sub demo Sunday. You have a nice system! Thanks for the general subwoofer advice. And by the way I tried audioclick.net & I have massive peaks & valleys in my frequency. Now I am trying REW and struggling. I posted the question under REW help (in DIY forum) if you get a minute.


For anyone considering these flatpacks the end result is good. While I didn't see the actual flatpacks the subwoofers looked good & performed well. SLP was high & it sounded great. The woofers didn't need to that move much & there was very little air flow our of the ports. I guess that is what you get when you have 4 subs in a room.

The minparty is HUGE! It looked like a small refrigerator. The martycubes were nice & small.

I don't use rew. With test tones from 15 to 100 hz every 5 hz you will get 95% of rew. Post the Spl numbers you recorded and I'll suggest some peq. I know you can't move your sub I believe.

Rew is great for nice looking graphs and there's a tonne of info besides spl available like waterfall plots. Most including myself have no idea what that stuff means. To achieve smooth bass response rew isn't needed. If your really determined to use rew then I am sure others will chime in.

I will post the PM you the frequencies when I get home. Your right I can't move my sub.

There were just so many huge peaks & valleys that I would be boosting & cutting everywhere. So, I thought REW would be best/quickest/easiest to use. My mistake.

Rew will just graph what your going to post. It just shows you response and suggests peq filters. If you Post numbers I can suggest filters. It will take 2 or three times with measurements to get it as smooth as possible. With only one sub you won't get really flat response but we can make improvements.

Regarding using dowels as bracing:


What size of dowels should I get for the martycube?
Do you just glue them in place or Glue and nail them?
Can you over dowel an enclosure?

There were quite a few using SI drivers in the older thread. On their website they have two different 18s, one quite a bit cheaper (and less capable) than the other. Which one was typically used? Or maybe they used to just carry one, sold it out and now have moved on to different product?

Does anyone have pics of any complete Marty subs? Especially the mini marty and the marty cube. Trying to get an idea of size before ordering. I know the mini will be much larger. But would like to see what it looks like in a room.

I just completed my martycube, I can take pictures of it beside my POLK Tsi 500 and my current SVS PB-2000 sub woofer.

Wife wants it on the side so we can move it back a bit further. Just to confirm the speakon will go above the "port bottom"marked piece of wood.

So glue and brad nails is all that is required to hold this beast together? No screws necessary?

Does anyone happen to know if/when the UXL-18 will be available again? I've emailed a few times now with no response.

Have you tried calling? Often the simplest and most direct line of communication is often the easiest.
I've heard that the current lead-time is around 8 weeks.

Do you have their phone number? It's not on the contact page.

Roughly 10 days ago and then about 6-8 weeks before that.
